Know More About Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a non-contagious common skin condition that causes rapid skin cell reproduction resulting in red, dry patches of thickened skin. The dry flakes and skin scales are thought to result from the rapid buildup of skin cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees, and scalp.

Causes

Psoriasis can be caused by a variety of reasons. Heredity can be crucial. If one parent is affected, then there is 15% of chances for the child to suffer from psoriasis. If both the parents are affected then the possibility of child getting the psoriasis is 60%. Consumption of opposite foods (such as fish and milk together), trauma on skin like cuts, bruises or burns, some medicines or skin irritants, excessive smoking, alcohol consumption and mental stress or psychological trauma can also be responsible for causing it.

Symptoms

  • Loose silvery scales

  • Itching or burning skin

  • Raised pus-filled skin bumps

  • Skin redness around pustules

  • Restricted joint motion

  • Emotional distress

  • Skin pain and inflammation

  • Skin blisters

  • Dry skin patches

  • Bleeding skin patches

Ayurvedic Psoriasis Treatment

According to Ayurveda, Psoriasis appears due to imbalance of two doshas - Vata and Kapha . Vata and Kapha doshas manifest in the skin and cause accumulation of toxins. These toxins accumulate in deep tissues like rasa (nutrient plasma), rakta (blood), mansa (muscles), and lasika (lymphatic). These toxins cause contamination of deeper tissues, leading to Psoriasis.

Purification of blood and tissues is the primary aim of Ayurvedic treatment in cases of Psoriasis. Toxins are cleansed from the body and the digestion restored to prevent further accumulation. Nourishing herbs are then administered to strengthen and tone the tissues to promote complete healing of the skin.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

  • Avoid consuming opposite foods.

  • Do not control natural urges like vomiting, urination, bowels, etc.

  • Do not take cold water bath immediately after a heavy workout, traveling, a long walk, etc.

  • Take care not to consume foods which cause indigestion.

  • Absolutely do not eat too much of salty, sour or acidic foods.

  • Avoid sleeping in afternoons.

  • Say no to radish, sesame, jaggery (gur), curds, fish and other sour foods.

Home Remedies

  • Cover the affected part with a fresh thin banana leaf.

  • Take 15-20 sesame seeds and soak in a glass of water. Keep it overnight and drink on an empty stomach early in the morning.

  • Take 1-2 cup of bitter gourd juice on empty stomach in the morning. Continue this for 5-6 months. Patient may add a tablespoon of lime juice, if they find it difficult to digest the bitter taste.

Diet rich in vitamins, minerals esp fruits & green leafy vegetables should be included in maximum regular exercise, yoga,avoid hair dyes, avoid washing hair frequently, avoid vigorous scalp massage/brushing. Homoeopathic Aspect of hairfall- Homoeopathy has a lot to offer in hairfall but it requires some time. Following medicines are useful in treating hairfall - Lycopodium, Graphites ,Thuja ,Phosphoric–acid ,Selenium ,Mancinella ,Fluoric–acid, Can notharis ,Phosphorus ,China ,Sepia. Avoid self medication as detailed history is required in each & every case. Thus Homoeopathy alongwith proper diet & regimen, regular exercises would prove to be a great ray of hope for the patients of hair–fall. You can consult me on Lybrate and get all the solutions.

B) take 30 ml of triphala juice and 10 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep…. C) take 2-2 tablets of chandraprabha vati and sutshekhar rasa after meals. D) take 2 tablet of vasantkusumakar rasa early in the morning on empty stomach with triphala juice…. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions.

How can we stop hair fall? And increase the hair growth.
Hi. Hair fall is very common now a days in this age group. These are due to hormone changes, stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy diet. Regulate your daily activities, stress, sleep, drink lots of water, eat vegetable and fruits. And do some exercise daily. Apply tugain 5% lotion on scalp. Biotin salt will help.

It should not be used for long term. Do not take any antibiotics without a proper prescription. Avoid steroids and antibiotics for minor problems. You can also safely use Homeopathy for acne or for any other recurrent/chronic complaints. You can contact me for further details about Homeopathy.
