You are so tired of dealing with all the red, scaly areas on your arms, legs, and even your head that you would do just about anything to find psoriasis remedies that work. There are as many natural remedies available to try for treatment of psoriasis as there are places you can get psoriasis.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that results in red, raised, scaly patches of skin that can get inflamed and itch, too. Depending on where the psoriasis is located on your body, the psoriasis remedies I am about to discuss may or may not work for each and every area.
During my research, I found several different methods people use to treat their psoriasis. First of all, you can take several different kinds of supplements such as essential fatty acids like flaxseed or primrose oil. These increase the level of moisture in your skin and you can take them both with a vitamin E supplement with Zinc to increase the healing power of your body. Fish oil supplements have certain anti-inflammatory aspects that can help reduce the redness and irritation of the affected areas.
Gentian root, bittergourd juice mixed with lime juice and hydrochloric acid all aid in digestive health which in turn aids in protein metabolism and protein metabolism aids in healing.
Taking milk thistle and sarsparilla help the liver detox your body and decrease the severity of symptoms and improve your overall skin health. If you feel daring and like to try new things you can mix 1 cup of bittergourd juice with 1 teaspoon lime juice and drink it everyday to get relief of your psoriasis symptoms.
Some people rely on a potent multivitamin with antioxidants to boost their immune system and get rid of all the free radicals floating around their system that may contribute to the severity of psoriasis symptoms. A probiotic with friendly bacteria will also help the body detox and work the way it was meant to. If your body is getting rid of toxins on a regular basis then it just makes sense that your skin will get to looking and feeling better. Your psoriasis may just become a thing of the past.
Other types of remedies consist of dissolving 2 teaspoons of ginger in a warm bath and giving the areas a good soak. Ginger eases redness and scaliness of psoriasis. If the psoriasis is on your head try to soak as much of the area on your head as you can otherwise just douse your head with the gingered water using a cup. You can even cook up some cabbage leaves and wrap the affected areas with gauze if you do not have a problem with wearing your food.
Other topical remedies include applying goldenseal extract, avocado oil, or cashew nut oil, and buttermilk. These topical remedies all add moisture and will reduce the scaly appearance of the affected areas.
With so many different psoriasis remedies to choose from you are bound to find one or two that will work for you.
