Psoriasis Revealed

First of all, psoriasis is not a death sentence, nor is it something to be ashamed of. Unless a really bad infection or some other severe condition has afflicted you because of your psoriasis flare-ups, it’s safe to say that you will be functional and relatively healthy, even if you are diagnosed with this condition.

Psoriasis is characterized by reddish, flaking skin that is almost always chronically itchy. To ordinary individuals, psoriasis may seem like a really nasty and contagious skin condition, because of its general appearance. In reality, it is impossible to contract psoriasis from another person.

What Causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is not caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. It is not contracted from other people, nor can it be passed on to others through airborne particles, body fluids, skin contact, etc.

In short, it is unfortunate that you have it, but your family members and workmates are safe; they cannot contract this condition by being close to you.

What happens when a person has a psoriasis flare-up? In order to understand your condition, we must go deep into the skin tissue itself, and examine how skin grows and renews itself from time to time. Under normal circumstances, skin grows at a regular pace, and it takes about a month before newly generated skin to emerge at the very surface.

At this time, the old skin slowly sheds off, and the new skin takes over the job of protecting the body and regulating body temperature (among other tasks). Psoriasis radically changes the situation, which really makes this skin condition a formidable opponent.

When you have psoriasis, the skin underneath the old skin regenerates too quickly. Skin tissue, like other tissues, has definite mass, so it has to push upward from where it is produced.

Instead of taking a whole month (approximately four weeks on the average), the new skin breaks through the surface of the old skin after only a few days.

Psoriasis often affects specific/isolated areas of the body, so if you have psoriasis you will notice that the skin condition is more prominent in only one or two parts of your body.

Why is psoriatic skin often irritated and itchy? The chronic itchiness and flaky appearance of psoriatic skin is a consequence of skin forming irregular plaques on the surface of the skin.

Psoriatic plaques are areas of the skin where there is more new skin than usual. These thick, unruly patches tend to be dry and itchy (and not to mention unattractive, in most cases).

The following areas of the body are commonly affected by psoriasis:

  1. Knees
  2. Back (lower region)
  3. Feet
  4. Elbows
  5. Hands
  6. Scalp
  7. Nails
  8. Thighs
  9. Arms

No age bracket is safe from psoriasis. Psoriasis has been documented throughout the age spectrum, from small toddlers to seniors. It has a genetic component, so it is possible that you may have inherited the skin condition from
your father, mother, or from some other member of the family tree. Some cases of psoriasis are also sporadic (e.g. no clear genetic precedence). Sporadic cases of psoriasis also involve an autoimmune component, so the treatment methods and management techniques are more or less the same.

Many people (especially young adults and teenagers) feel that their social lives are over because of psoriasis. The angry, reddish patches of skin can really affect a person’s self-confidence and his ability to carry himself gracefully in social situations.

If you feel this way as well, know that you do not have to suffer in silence, and there are many ways that you can manage, and even potentially cure, your psoriasis. This book will focus on both conventional and alternative methods of managing psoriasis.

You can try one or both avenues to see which one works for you the best. People who are dissatisfied with conventional modes of treatment often explore alternative medicine. We will be covering this as well in the later part of the book.

Discovering the Causes of Psoriasis Disease

The first question that people often ask when they are diagnosed with psoriasis is, what is the actual cause of the skin condition. As we have discussed before, psoriasis cannot be contracted directly from another person, like you can the common cold or influenza.

There are many theories surrounding the actual cause of psoriasis, but what the medical establishment believes right now is that it is mainly transmitted through genes (your familial bloodlines), and that the chronic patchy skin and itchiness is caused by an overactive immune system (thus, the autoimmune/genetic component).

These established roots of the disease have many implications for psoriasis sufferers everywhere. Adults who have the disease may inadvertently pass on the risk for developing psoriasis to future offspring. Inversely, a doctor can further confirm a diagnosis for psoriasis by creating a detailed medical history of a patient’s family.

In any case, you have to understand that, while it is true that you did not contract your psoriasis from anyone, it is possible that your skin condition has been triggered by your diet, lifestyle, and even by your immediate environment.

You see, psoriasis is actually a condition wherein the body thinks it is under attack and, therefore, it implements specific measures to ensure that the body is protected. In the case of psoriasis, your immune system is actually triggering increased skin production at specific sites in your body.

Most common triggers that you need to be aware of if you want to start taking charge of your chronic skin condition:

  • Trigger # 1: Stress
  • Trigger # 2: Skin Injuries
  • Trigger # 4: Weather
  • Trigger # 5: Alcohol
  • Trigger # 6: Tobacco Smoke

Fruits that you can snack on daily without the fear of consuming too much fructose:

  1. Tomato
  2. Apricot
  3. Pineapple
  4. Cantaloupe
  5. Watermelon
  6. Cherries
  7. Raisins
  8. Dates
  9. Oranges
  10. Grapefruit
  11. Pears
  12. Kiwi fruit
  13. Peaches

Conventional Treatments for Psoriasis (Chambal ke Marz Se Shifa)

Treatment Option # 1: Topical Agents

You can maintain the clarity and cleanliness of your skin by washing affected areas often with pure water, and by showering frequently.

Short, but frequent, showers throughout the day will naturally clean and hydrate your skin. Of course, not everyone has the luxury of time to shower three or four times per day.
This is where emollients and other moisturizing agents come in. You can easily apply emollients even when you are at work. Let me clarify though: emollients are applied topically to keep your skin hydrated to prevent drying and itchiness.

These products don’t treat your psoriasis; they are merely applied to manage the moisture level of your skin. If your skin is always clean and moisturized, it is unlikely that you will feel the urge to scratch, because even the psoriatic plaques will be soft and supple to touch.

A daily skin regimen is necessary in addition to applying ointments and creams that address itch and inflammation of affected skin. Here are some of the most commonly prescribed topical agents for psoriasis.
Again, these topical agents will not eradicate the psoriasis; they are only capable of mediating some of the symptoms of the disease.

Natural Home Remedies to Cure Psoriasis (Chambal Ke Amraz)

Now that we are done discussing conventional methods of treating the disease, it is time to explore natural avenues of easing the symptoms, as well as some no-nonsense tips that will make home management of the disease a piece of cake.

  • Vinegar – The itchiness caused by thick psoriatic plaques can be maddening. If you cannot function well with that nagging itch at the back of your mind, you can try a vinegar bath to help ease the itchiness. Simply fill your tub with lukewarm (note: not scalding hot) water, and pour 1-2 US cups of pure apple cider vinegar.

Regular apple cider vinegar from the grocery is fine; you do not have to buy more expensive varieties. Soak for a few minutes until your skin absorbs the lukewarm vinegar infusion. Feel free to shower afterward to remove the vinegary smell.

If the smell doesn’t bother you, or if it is very mild, feel free to just rinse off. Some patients use this technique at night before going to bed. The mild smell of the vinegar will probably not cause any serious problems, since you are going to rinse off after a long soak.

Pure apple cider vinegar can also be applied directly to the affected skin. To make things more convenient, pour a small amount of pure apple cider vinegar to a plastic/glass spray bottle.

When your skin feels itchy, spritz a small amount on tips of your fingers, and apply gently on the affected skin. Remember: don’t scratch or pick at the plaques!

If you want the vinegar to act upon your diseases from the inside, you can also make a vinegar-honey infusion called honegar. A simple honegar can be made with 1 US cup of warm water, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of pure organic honey.

Sip at this concoction until it is finished. Supporters of this folk remedy claim that honegar can reduce itchiness, and may even help cut down the frequency of flare-ups.

  • Epsom salts – An Epsom salts infusion during your daily soak can help remove the dry, scaly skin on top of the plaques. You will need a quarter of a cup of Epsom salts. Add the Epsom salts to your bathtub, and be sure to soak the affected areas for at least fifteen minutes.

During this time, your skin will soften, and the scaly skin will drop off on its own. There is no need to rub the affected areas at all, as the Epsom salts will take care of that for you. Do not apply Epsom salts directly on your psoriatic plaques!

  • Wheat germ, castor & sunflower oils – These three oils can be combined to produce a very natural and very soothing moisturizing agent. You will need half a teaspoon of wheat germ oil, half a teaspoon of castor oil, and one half US cup of sunflower oil.

Make sure that your oils are organic and pure, with no additional fragrances or chemicals. After combining the three oils, take a small amount and apply gently to the plaques.

These oils have known restorative and antibiotic effects, so you can be sure that your plaques will stay hydrated and free of bacterial invaders as well. Feel free to reapply the oily emollient whenever you feel like it.

If it works for you, be happy knowing that this mixture is very hypoallergenic, and does not cause side effects. You can use it every day if you like, if it really helps in reducing dryness and itchiness of your plaques.

  • Vitamin E – Vitamin E supplementation may help ease the itching associated with psoriasis. You will need no less than eight hundred international units of vitamin E every day if you want to supplement the treatment of psoriasis.
  • Fish oil – Fish oil is a known wonder supplement because of its heart-healthy benefits. But did you know that the heart-healthy advantages of fish oil (derived largely from the presence of omega 3 fatty acids) can also be used to manage psoriasis?

According to current research, the anti-inflammatory properties of omega 3 fatty acids can also help psoriasis patients by reducing the inflammation of psoriatic plaques.

You will need between 2000 – 3000 mg of fish oil every day to achieve good results with this type of natural therapy.

Be careful though – fish oil supplements are not recommended for individuals with a history of stomach ulcers and hyperacidity, as it may exacerbate such conditions.

If you are unsure, ask your doctor first before buying fish oil supplements. Also, make sure that you are really getting 2000/3000 milligrams of pure fish oil and not other ingredients.

  • Goldenseal – ¼ teaspoon of goldenseal infusion or tincture can be used to detoxify the body. Taken once daily for a total of ten days, this natural herbal remedy may help the body cleanse itself of unsavory toxins and waste products. Indirectly, this may help reduce the onset of psoriatic flare-ups.
  • Things You’ll Need

    • Apple cider vinegar
    • Ice cubes
    • Sulphate-free shampoo with wheat germ or jojoba oil
    • Chamomile tea
    • Neem oil
    • Tea tree oil
    • Rosemary oil
    • Lavender oil
    • Olive, almond, wheat germ or coconut oil
    • Organic oatmeal

    – If the idea of applying topical agents and taking oral medication for psoriasis seems unappealing to you, here’s a natural remedy that is definitely worth looking at: milk thistle.

Extracts of this herbal remedy can be found easily in natural health stores. You will need at least three hundred milligrams of pure extract.

Alternative health practitioners believe that this herbal remedy can help slow down the pace of skin growth throughout the body. Perfect for psoriasis, indeed! Additionally, milk thistle is a live-protective herbal remedy.

  • Gotu Kola – If you have been looking for a restorative remedy for your psoriatic plaques, gotu kola just might help you. This world-renowned remedy has natural healing properties, and may help cut down the healing time of plaques that have breaks on them. It also has some anti-inflammatory properties as well. You will need to take two hundred milligrams of this supplement daily.
  • Natural sunlight – While it is true that sunburns should be avoided at all costs, this doesn’t mean that the sun does not have anything positive to contribute to the fight against psoriasis.

Exposure to natural sunlight can definitely help reduce psoriasis flare-ups, as long as the exposure is not too long, and you apply sunscreen products frequently throughout the day.

  • Diet culprits – Some people develop psoriatic plaques after consuming certain foods or beverages. If this happens to you frequently, try to write down the foods that you eat on a daily basis and, when the psoriasis strikes, you can narrow down your list of culprits.
  • Capsaicin – Capsaicin is oil that is naturally derived from chilies. Essential capsaicin oil may help reduce itchiness and dryness of psoriatic plaques.

Be careful when applying essential oils though; many of these oils are so potent that they can cause trouble if applied directly. Consult with a dermatologist or an experienced alternative health practitioner to learn how you can apply such oils safely to affected areas.

You can also try primrose oil and oregano oil, as these oils have also shown promise in terms of reducing inflammation and itchiness of affected skin.

  • Psoriatic scalp– Pure apple cider vinegar can be used as an organic wash for your scalp if plaques have appeared in this area. Wash the area for a few minutes with pure vinegar and let the skin absorb it first. Wash off the vinegar afterward, and feel free to shampoo as well.
  • Special shampoos can help– Extremely fragrant shampoos are a definite no-no when you psoriasis of the scalp.

However, if you can find organic shampoos with ingredients like jojoba oil, you are definitely on the right track. Jojoba oil can help soothe the itch on the scalp, and can help reduce the incidence of scratching (which can then lead to more itchiness, scaly skin and even bleeding).

Home Remedies for Scalp Psoriasis (Chambal ka Marz Sir ke Liye Shifa)

Step 1

Rinsing your scalp with cool water that has an cup of apple cider vinegar added will help sooth itching. Because apple cider vinegar is alkaline, this will help reduce the inflammation created by psoriasis.

Step 2

Apply ice cubes to the areas on your scalp that are causing you pain and irritation.

Step 3

Use a sulphate-free shampoo to wash your hair. When washing, make sure you use cool water, as hot water can irritate the inflammation. Organic shampoos that contain wheat germ or jojoba oil will help to keep the itching and redness down.

Step 4

Rinse your scalp with one cup of cooled down chamomile tea. Chamomile provides soothing relief both internally and internally.

Step 5

Use soothing oils as a salve for the areas on your scalp affected by psoriasis. You can make an oil mixture by blending one teaspoon of the following ingredients together:

  1. Neem oil
  2. Tea tree oil
  3. Rosemary oil
  4. Lavender oil

Add them to an oil base made of three teaspoons of olive, almond, wheat germ or coconut oil and gently massage on the irritated areas. You can also use neem oil by itself as this substance is a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial that helps to nourish the scalp, soften skin, sooth irritation and stimulate the immune system. Neem oil is an essential ingredient in traditional Indian hair treatments, adding shine along with scalp health.

Step 6

Another recipe for psoriasis of the scalp is to mix a quarter-cup of organic oatmeal with water and let it soak for a half an hour. Strain and place the liquid that is left in a cup with several drops of lavender and rosemary oil. Once the mixture is cool, daub on the sensitive areas of your scalp for relief.
