Remedies for psoriasis

When you have psoriasis, you want to find THE solution, the one that will completely and definitively get rid of the disease, this true "plague" that is ruining your life. Any idea can seem like the right one when you are battling with psoriasis. And people are willing to go to any lengths. So, does a miracle cure for psoriasis really exist?



Choosing the right treatment

When conventional medicine takes a long time to work or is not very effective, people are sometimes tempted to turn to more natural remedies for psoriasis: homeopathy, phytotherapy and aromatherapy, as well as acupuncture, osteopathy, hypnosis, etc. Some "home remedies" for psoriasis are available in different formats: Aleppo soap, oat baths, aloe vera, the extremely salty water from the Dead Sea... The range of products on offer is vast and everyone wants to chip in with their opinions and experiences. All this can be difficult to make sense of, particularly when the testimonies seem so convincing. Sometimes you just want to try everything, until you find that miracle cure for psoriasis.

"Try it, it can't do any harm", people often say. But this is a mistake! Natural remedies for psoriasis are not completely without risk, whether they are applied to the skin or swallowed. "Natural" does not always mean "harmless". You may be allergic or intolerant, particularly to products containing one or more essential oils. Always read the label carefully and talk to your doctor or pharmacist first.

Psoriasis is a chronic disease for which there is still no definitive cure. However, there are many treatments which can stabilize the disease, soothe your skin and help you to live better with psoriasis on a daily basis. Treatment and skin care must be undertaken for the long-term.
