  • Psoriasis


Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin. These skin patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly. They may vary in severity from small and localized to complete body coverage.

According to Ayurveda, Psoriasis can be considered as the vitiation of Vata and Kapha. Accumulation of low potency poisons (Dooshi vishas) are the basic pathological changes taking place in the system. Irregular food habits, consumption of foodstuffs that cannot be eaten together (Eg: milk with fish), excessive intake of curd, black gram, seafood, sour and salted items etc; stress can activate the pathogenesis.

Causes :

  1. Psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin.
  2. Abnormality in the mechanism in which the skin grows and replaces itself causes psoriasis.
  3. Heredity also plays a role in the development of psoriasis.
  4. Environmental factors such as trauma, sunlight, infection, emotional stress, climatic changes etc

Line of Treatment:

Purification of blood and tissues is the primary aim of Ayurvedic treatment in cases of Psoriasis. Toxins are cleansed from the body and the digestion restored to prevent further accumulation. Nourishing herbs are then administered to strengthen and tone the tissues to promote complete healing of the skin.

  • Consumption of medicated ghee, considering the Dosha type of the Psoriasis and the person, for 5 to 7 days.
  • Detoxifying, by inducing vomiting (Vamana) and purgation (Virechana). This is followed by medicated buttermilk dripping overhead (Takradhara) and pasting the entire body with medicines (Lepa).
  • Basti (medicated enema) is done for 8 days.
  • Leech therapy (Jalouka) for purification of blood.
  • Internal medicines like herbal decoctions, medicated ghee are useful.
