Psoriasis Awareness Month

August is Psoriasis Awareness Month. Here’s what you need to know about psoriasis and homeopathy.psoriasis stats

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, 7.5 million people in the United States have psoriasis. More than half are dissatisfied with their treatment and acknowledge that psoriasis adversely affects their daily activities. One third experience difficulties in social situations because of their psoriasis, often because others wrongly believe this autoimmune condition is contagious. Homeopathy can help.

Beside the traditional treatment with harsh steroids or sunlight—which is a less-than-reliable option in some locations and during the winter months of the year—a homeopathic remedy can be tailored to your whole being and unique circumstances.
Arsenicum album or Phosphorus for psoriasis on the elbows, knees, soles of the feet, and the palms of the hands
Graphite for eruptions and cracking behind the ears and in the groin area
Kali arsenicum for severe itching, cuts along elbows or knees, and psoriatic arthritis
Kali sulphuricum for intense itching
Natrum muriaticum for patches along the hairline with flaking and peeling

The following lifestyle practices may also be beneficial
• Add ½  t. each of turmeric and ginger to your morning tea to reduce inflammation
• Consider tea tree oil for its anti-bacterial and anti-infectious properties
• Consume more fruits and vegetables, the more colorful the better, so your body is better equipped to fight disease
• Drink plenty of water to keep your skin as hydrated as possible
• Eat more fish like salmon that is rich in omega-3 oils or consume fish oil for its ability to fight inflammation and boost your immune system
• Get a massage to help reduce stress
• Practice yoga to relieve stress and pain and increase flexibility
• Try a gluten-free diet to reduce inflammation in your body
