Ayurveda and Psoriasis
In Ayurveda, psoriasis as any other disease is considered a result of an imbalance in the body’s doshas, particularly the Pitta and Kapha doshas.
Ayurbeauty treatments for psoriasis typically focus on balancing these doshas and purifying the blood, one of the underlying reasons for psoriasis.
Many ingredients and methods are used to treat psoriasis such as herbal supplements or other types of alternative treatments.
Dietary Changes: it is necessary to emphasize dietary modifications to reduce inflammation and balance doshas. This may involve avoiding spicy, acidic, and fermented foods, and consuming more cooling and alkaline foods like fresh vegetables and fruits.
Herbal Remedies: it is often recommended herbal remedies such as neem, turmeric, aloe vera, and bitter gourd for their anti-inflammatory and skin-healing properties.
Panchakarma: This is a detoxification and cleansing procedure which involves techniques like medicated oil massages, steam therapy, and purgation to remove toxins from the body and balance doshas.
Yoga and Meditation: Stress can trigger or worsen psoriasis, so stress management techniques like yoga and meditation are often recommended in Ayuryoga we promote relaxation and reduce stress.
Lifestyle Modifications: Ayurbeauty also suggests making lifestyle changes like getting adequate sleep, maintaining proper hygiene, and avoiding excessive sun exposure, which can exacerbate psoriasis.
It’s important to note that while Ayurvedic treatments may provide relief for some individuals with psoriasis, they should not replace conventional medical advice or treatment.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition, and its management should be discussed with medical professionals in order to provide a more comprehensive and evidence-based approach to care.
Always consult with a qualified Ayurbeauty practitioner or dermatologist before pursuing any treatment options.
