Treating psoriasis through Ayurveda

PSORIASIS is a chronic and recurrent autoimmune and inflammatory disease.

The modern treatment options not only provide temporary relief but also have serious side effects. Thus, the chronic and recurring nature of the disease hampers one’s quality of life to a great extent.
However, Ayurvedic medicine can successfully manage and reverse psoriasis through healthy living in terms of proper nutrition, herbo-mineral preparations, lifestyle changes and yoga.

All skin diseases fall into the category of Kustha roga.

In classical Ayurvedic texts, Panchatikta ghruta has been indicated for treating a number of skin disorders. It has been widely used for psoriasis, eczema and ulcers.
Panchatikta ghruta shows great results in cases of inflammation within the body. It is traditionally indicated because of its distinctive quality in removing toxic build-up and purifying the circulatory system.

Some important recommendations for improving psoriasis:

- Improve your gut health: Many autoimmune conditions occur because of improper gut health. Ayurveda clearly advocates that no disease can occur without a deranged Agni (digestive fire). Agni is responsible for digestion at the level of the GIT (gut health) and metabolism at the levels of tissues. Therefore one should ensure one has a good amount of probiotics in one's diet.

- Manage your stress: Elevated stress levels directly influence cortisol, the stress hormone. Therefore, try to take better care of your body. Some other tips to manage stress include daily walks, acupressure, exercise, yoga, meditation, sufficient sleep etc.

- Follow a healthy and nutritious diet: Eliminate tea, coffee, sugar and refined carbohydrates and grains. Include green leafy vegetables such as kale, cabbage, spinach, Romaine, beet leaves etc.

- Avoid eating anything preserved or reheating food as this disrupts the digestive fire and leads to the accumulation of metabolic toxins in the gut. Also, try to include flax seeds in your diet. Vitamins D3 and K2 also help.
