Psoriasis treatment in Ayurveda

Psoriasis treatment doctors (Ayurvedic) classify psoriasis as "Kushtha". In Ayurvedic terms, psoriasis seems to occur as a result of vitiation of Vata and Kapha Doshas. Such vitiations manifest underneath the skin and cause accumulation of toxins (leading to inflammation). The toxins after accumulation may reach up to Dhatus like Rasa (nutrient plasma), Rakta (blood), Mansa (muscles), and Lasika (lymphatic) to cause psoriasis. Hence, the Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis dictates to purify the blood and tissues. The above-mentioned toxin accumulation is particularly targeted with the help of nourishing herbs, allowing digestive restoration. Ayurveda describes that the Vata vitiation leads to imbalanced bodily functions and Kapha brings symptoms of psoriasis like the body (skin) growth, rapid skin cell turnover, dryness, and skin scaling. Acharya Charaka has given a detailed account of Viruddha Aahars (contradictory foods) and Mithya Aharas (improper diet) that may contribute to psoriasis.

Ayurvedic psoriasis treatment

In the Ayurvedic treatment for skin disease, the primary aim is to detoxify the body by eliminating the toxins from the body fluids (Rasa). On the basis of several case studies, we understand that the vitiated Vata and Kapha enhances the accumulation of low potency poisons (Dooshi Vishas) responsible for basic pathological changes in the human body and Dooshi Vishas also obstruct the circulatory channels. We, at ND care Nirogam Pvt. Ltd., recommend Shroto Shodak Dravyas to restore digestion and cleansing of toxins along with prevention from the recurrence of toxin accumulation. We also administer nourishing and immunomodulator herbs to promote rapid healing of skin and calm the immune system's response respectively. The above-mentioned herbs can significantly reduce the proliferation of the skin cells in the basal layers of the skin, and by following psoriasis Ayurvedic treatment diet, we can treat psoriasis naturally.
