Natural Cure for Psoriasis
Can anybody suggest me the natural way to deal with Psoriasis. One of my friends is having problem related,and had gone through different treatments, but not got much relief from the problem.
Thanks in advance.
That is a damn good question. I suffer from it myself.
My brother does too. So I made him a liniment with tumeric and glycerin and that helped him. I followed by making him a "medicated" herbal cream, with cocoa butter, banana leaf ash, tumeric vitamin e, and other herbs and its working wonders, he does not itch and the skin is clearing up.
Azadirachta indica is best treatment for psoriasis ,just mess the leaf of Azadirachta indica and put where your skin got infected ,leave it for couple minutes.Its decrease your pain.In other way you can both with water of Azadirachta indica.

The effect of French maritime pine bark extract (PBE) on the gene expression profile of HaCaT human keratinocytes was studied using high density filter arrays. The expression profile of both control and PBE-treated cells was determined. Interestingly, PBE was shown to downregulate both calgranulin A and B genes which are known to be upregulated in psoriasis and various dermatoses. Thus, PBE could be considered in human dermatoses.

What about the sun and water? I know many dermatologists recoil in horror at the thought of exposing skin to sunshine without first applying sunscreen, but I heard 15 minutes of daily sun does so much to keep psoriasis under control.
Also I know that herbal tea baths work to keep your troubled skin in good repair, but remember the hotter the water, the more drying it is. It is important to re-hydrate your skin with herbal oils during and after hot baths and showers.
Sufferers of psoriasis tend to have raised levels of a fat known as arachidonic acid in their blood streams.
Arachidonic acid tends to encourage inflammation in the body, and some scientists believe that this may be an important underlying factor in psoriasis.
In the body, arachidonic acid can be formed from what are known as omega-6 fatty acids, such as those found in many margarines, vegetable oils, processed foods, fast foods and baked goods such as muffins, cakes, biscuits and patisserie.
It makes sense for you to avoid these foods. Other foods to be limited in the diet include those that are rich in arachidonic acid including dairy products and red meat.
While arachidonic tends to encourage inflammation in the body, other fats, known as the omega-3 fatty acids, tend to do quite the reverse. Omega-3 fats are found main in oily fish (such as salmon, trout, mackerel, herring and sardines) and flaxseed (linseed) oil. Interestingly, it has been noted that Greenland Eskimos who have a high intake of omega-3 fats from fish also have a low incidence of psoriasis.
Hope this would help.
Yoga is a great stress reducer.
Reducing stress may help relieve the pain and itch of psoriasis plaques.
Drinking plain water helps keep you hydrated and, when you have psoriasis, being well hydrated will keep your skin from getting too dry
