Psoriasis is a skin disease, also known as skin asthma. Skin cells grow very fast in this. In this, a crust is formed on the top layer of the skin and it peels off. This causes dryness in the skin and causes white spots. The skin becomes red due to itching and wounds are formed in it.
Psoriasis disease occurs due to disturbances in the immune system. It has nothing to do with cosmic or skin type, however, after this disease, there can be many other diseases and troubles related to it.
Psoriasis is a skin disorder that can be treated by ayurvedic medicines easily. Psoriasis disease occurs only when the immune system attacks healthy cells. Many skin cells grow which causes dryness of skin along with hard rashes on the skin surface.
Symptoms of psoriasis:
The health expert said, ‘Unlike other skin diseases, the disease called psoriasis is caused by the hyperactive immune system, in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues. Common symptoms of psoriasis include itching in the affected normal organs of the body. The crust-like top layer on the skin accumulates. Red spots and rashes occur in the body. There is no complete cure for psoriasis, but it can be controlled to a great extent, regardless of the severity of the symptoms of psoriasis.
At the same time, another health expert says that ‘we do not take the symptoms of psoriasis seriously in our society. Ignoring the disease and lack of awareness regarding psoriasis disease is not able to detect the disease on time and there is a lot of hindrance in the treatment of this disease. There is a cure for skin and other diseases that occur on the body, but there is no cure for psoriasis. Therefore, it is very important to be aware of the symptoms of psoriasis and by looking at some of its special symptoms, the process of treatment of the disease should start.
- Swollen and red skin patches covered by slavery, loose scales. It can be painful, itchy, and can sometimes cause cracks and blood.
- Nails and toes can be formed and change color. It may also begin to crumble or may detach from the nail beds.
- Scale and patches or crust may form on the head of psoriasis patients.
Psoriasis trauma can occur for a variety of reasons, from emotional stress to streptococcal infection. A recent study of the disease has indicated that some abnormality in the immune system is the factor that triggers the disease. There are five different types of psoriasis:
- Plaque psoriasis: This is a type of psoriasis that has red patches on the skin. They are covered by Silvery Dead Skin Sales.
- Guttate Psoriasis: small reddish spots on skin is formed. This happens after the patient becomes ill.
- Inverse psoriasis: This type of psoriasis usually occurs in the folds of the skin. This causes skin rash and red spots.
- Pustular psoriasis: This type of psoriasis fills pus on palms and soles. They are painful and itchy at the same time. It causes flu-type symptoms which include fever, dizziness, loss of appetite, etc.
- Erythrodermic psoriasis: The skin bright red like a severe sunburn skin. This type of psoriasis causes a fast heart rate, itching, and pain. It should be mentioned that this is an emergency that should be consulted by a doctor.
The reasons for this have not been known much yet, but various studies suggest that the disease is associated with the immune system. In simple words, the cells that fight against the external elements like viruses, bacteria, etc. in our body, they also attack good cells of the skin of the psoriasis sufferer. This causes a thick layer to form on the skin. Psoriasis patient should take care of skin injury, wound, infection, any insect bites, cold, sunburn, and stress. Those who smoke heavily and consume alcohol should be especially cautious.
Psoriasis is often caused by emotional trauma or stress, although there are other reasons. According to ancient science Ayurveda, psoriasis occurs due to an imbalance of air and phlegm. Here we are describing some ways in which psoriasis can be treated:
According to the treatment of Ayurveda Takradhara, purified medicinal buttermilk is used in psoriasis disease. This keeps skin and hair healthy.
Neem leaves are very effective in treating psoriasis. Neem oil is rich in nutrients and is used in many types of lotions, creams, soaps, and cosmetics. It is very good for those who have itching disease i.e. eczema. It also helps in treating psoriasis and nail pimples. It can also be applied to scratches and small wounds. Perhaps this is the reason why neem oil remains in all types of medicine lotions. Neem oil removes dryness and itching of the skin.
Ayurveda experts recommend catharsis, which removes all the toxic substances from the body.
4 – Avoiding food that produces toxic substances
According to Ayurveda, there are some things that the wrong combination during eating can cause toxic elements in the body. For example, never eat milkshakes and yogurt together.
Flax seeds contain substances that reduce inflammation in the body, such as omega 3 fatty acids. They also contain antioxidants, which maintain balance in the secretion (release) of the hormone. Eating raw or roasted seeds of flax keeps the skin clean.
Since psoriasis is caused by emotional trauma, the parshanam and art of living Sudarshan Kriya, which is a rhythmic breathing process, are very beneficial. Sudarshan Kriya removes toxic elements and negative emotions present at the level of emotions from the body.
