The treatment of psoriasis with diet, medicinal plants, or homeopathy can be quite difficult, but if you have a strong will and persistence, you can achieve it.
Psoriasis is the most common reason for going to a dermatologist in winter. This chronic disease is known for the red flakes that appear on your skin, dry skin and itching. It’s most common during the winter because there is not enough sun and ultraviolet radiation, which have a positive effect on the symptoms of psoriasis.
Psoriasis can occur at any age, most often between the ages 16 and 30 or between 50 and 60. Although this disease is relatively common, it isn’t really serious, but it’s more of an unpleasant aesthetic problem. There are many plants with medicinal properties that can successfully cure it or at least alleviate its unpleasant symptoms. It is believed that every 1 in 10 people carries the gene for this disease, but doesn’t necessarily suffer from it.
The exact cause of psoriasis is still unknown, but chronic stress is thought to be one of the most common factors. Genetics is also a factor, and there is a link between hormonal changes and the onset of psoriasis. Symptoms of psoriasis can worsen during puberty and menopause, and almost always aggravate during pregnancy. Moreover, some drugs and chemicals can also cause this disease, including the risk factors obesity and frequent throat infections.
Psoriasis can be easily identified and characterized by red patches covered in silvery scales in a limited area on the skin. The most commonly affected areas are the scalp, lower back, elbows, knees, nails and joints. Skin changes can occur and disappear for good, but they can also remain forever. There are however more serious forms when almost the entire skin is red and covered in scales, and such a condition requires immediate hospitalization because of the danger of dehydration, enteropathy, anemia and hypoproteinemia.
In 80% of cases, the reason for the occurrence of this disease is stress, and psoriasis often occurs after a stressful life event such as losing a job or a loved one. Actually, the root cause for the occurrence of the disease is sudden loss of immunity, which inevitably stems from a large amount of stress. Therefore, it is vital to strengthen your immune system prior to starting any other treatment of psoriasis.
Detoxification of the body has a crucial role in all skin diseases. Practice has shown that the symptoms of psoriasis subside after detoxification. The process of detoxification can take several weeks, and it is best done in late autumn, during the winter and early spring. During detoxification, you should consume raw natural foods which haven’t been heat treated.
It is important to avoid meat and meat products, canned food, industrial spices, sweets, mayonnaise, ketchup, sauces artificial, anything that contains preservatives, artificial colors and flavors, unhealthy soft drinks, alcohol, cigarettes, pastries and other processed foods. Fried food should also be avoided.
