Heal psoriasis, eczema & other skin diseases

The skin is the largest organ of the body. Moreover, it’s elastic, waterproof, lightproof, and self-mending. It renews constantly and adapts to fit us perfectly from childhood, through adulthood, to venerable old age. A healthy skin is a reflection of a healthy happy, light body whereas a diseased skin not only needs topical application of creams but also a deep cleaning of all internal organs. Many of skin diseases are autoimmune and are related to stress and emotions. According to Ayurveda, untimely, improper eating habits clubbed with bad lifestyle vitiates the blood and in turn all the tissues. Thus vitiated blood shows the symptoms of illness throughout the body, for example by exhibiting on the skin through diseases like psoriasis, eczema, etc. Skin dis-ease treatment with Ayurveda needs patience as skin healing is always slow and requires not only the basic treatment, but also many changes of the diet and lifestyle.

Psoriasis

It is a non-contagious common skin condition that causes rapid cell reproduction resulting in red, dry patches of thickened skin. The dry flakes and skin scales are thought to result from the rapid buildup of cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees and scalp. Only after a proper counselling this is determined and a program is made. The program for psoriasis, eczema and the skin diseases include the three-weeks intensive detoxification, along with herbal medicines to heal the skin, and an alkaline nutrition plan. Meditation and pranayama to calm your mind can simultaneously heal your skin.

  1. Use baking soda to reduces itching: add 2 tbsp of baking soda to 1 bowl of water, soak a towel in the mixture, wring it out and apply on the skin as a compress;
  2. Expose your skin to the morning sun as its effective in reducing skin inflammation and scal-ing;
  3. Take 1 glass of bitter gourd juice mixed with a lemon. Mix well and drink this every day on an empty stomach.

At Shivani Ayurveda we do Intensive detoxification to clean the liver and all the internal organs through panchkarma. We also prescribe an alkaline diet for faster healing along with application of special oil/natural paste as per the current condition . Note : Any active inflamed bleeding skin disease is not suitable for any Panchkarma therapy and needs to be healed with herbs first.
