Psoriasis TREATMENT IN KERALA
Ayurvedic Treatment for Psoriasis
Psoriasis, a common skin disease found in both men and women, is actually an auto-immune condition and is characterized by abnormal silvery skin patches on the scalp and bony regions such as knee and elbow. The life cycle of the affected person’s skin cells gets speeded up, causing them to rapidly build up on the surface. The red patches formed because of the buildup of the skin cells might be itchy and scaly. Hindusthan Ayurvedic provides comprehensive Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis through the elimination of toxins from body ensuring complete rejuvenation.
Types of Psoriasis
As per Ayurveda, the imbalance of the two ‘ doshas’ Vata and Kapha causes this chronic skin disease. While ‘Vata’ which controls the bodily functions is responsible for skin dryness and scaling associated with psoriasis, Kapha which is responsible for body growth can cause itching and rapid skin cell eruption. At Hindusthan Ayurvedic, we aim to help the person heal his body and mind through time-tested Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis and thereby ensuring the total rejuvenation of the body. We provide you with the best Ayurvedic treatment for the following types of psoriasis giving complete relief.
Lesions (red spots with silvery scales) in varying sizes may appear anywhere on the body. When scraped, they expose a bleeding surface (Auspitz sign). The size of the lesion enlarges gradually. The patches may appear on the scalp, palms, soles, knee extensor surfaces, elbows, sacrum, and back. The lesion may not be itchy but itching may occur when the lesion folds. Nails may thicken and become pitted and striated. In middle-aged people, rheumatoid arthritis referred to as psoriatic arthropathy, may develop.
This is a rare type and it occurs with clear demarcation. There will not be any scale. Typically, the areas affected are the groin, genitals, perianal skin, and the axilllae skin folds. This type is not easy to treat.
This localized type of psoriasis occurs in children. It involves prominent scaling in the digits. Commonly, nails thicken and colour changes. Lesions may occur on the body and limbs or other body parts in the case of generalized Pustular psoriasis.

Treatment in Ayurveda for Psoriasis
According to Ayurveda, psoriasis can occur because of dosha imbalance, viruddha ahara (eating incompatible foods), and mental stress, among others. Treatments include:
In Panchakarma, Vamana Karma (medical vomiting or medical emesis) is a Pradhana Karma. It is used for treating Kapha disorders.
Virechana Karma, Pitta detoxification therapy, is a purification procedure. It also forms part of the Panchakarma.
In Panchakarma, Vasti therapy is used to remove doshas and toxins from the body. Medicated liquids and oils are administered through the rectum using the instrument vasthiyantra removes all impurities from the body through the excretory system.
This is used for treating illnesses in the head region. Nostrils act as the doorway to the brain.

Toxemia, or circulation of toxins in the gastrointestinal tract throughout the body, causes infections, circulatory system problems, and hypertension. They include skin disorders like herpes, eczema, acne, urticaria, rashes, scabies, chronic itching, leukoderma, or hives.
