Though it’s generally not considered to be life-threatening, Psoriasis is still a very unpleasant condition for anybody to suffer with.
Psoriasis is a form of autoimmune condition which causes your body’s own immune system to attack itself. The immune system is ironically designed to help protect us against illness and disease, but with Psoriasis, the white blood cells which make up our immune systems, mistakenly fire into action and trigger a series of immune responses in the body, which can lead to Psoriasis.
Characterised with itchy, uncomfortable, and flaky red patches on the skin, Psoriasis is a condition that nobody wants to have to deal with.
There are treatments available, but most of those cause other nasty side effects and can eventually damage our major organs.
Thankfully there are also a number of natural treatments and remedies you can try at home. Here’s a look at just 4 natural home remedies for treating psoriasis.
Keep your skin hydrated –
As mentioned, a tell-tale sign of a Psoriasis breakout is when the skin become dry and flaky. To help prevent this from happening, and to help manage the symptoms, a great natural way of treating psoriasis is to ensure your skin is well hydrated. To begin with you could invest in a humidifier to help keep your home slightly moist.
You should also use good quality moisturizers on your skin, especially where the Psoriasis is. Organic coconut oil also makes a fantastic moisturizer and helps keep moisture locked in the skin for hours at a time. Make sure to moisturize after bathing, first thing in a morning, and last thing at night.
Consume Turmeric supplements –
Turmeric is very much the health supplement of the hour at the moment. It also happens to be a very delicious spice for cooking, but we won’t go into that now.
Turmeric has been found to provide countless benefits for the body, and when it comes to Psoriasis, these benefits really become apparent.
Turmeric is rich in antioxidants, including curcumin, which provides many of this spice’s healing properties. Turmeric provides anti-inflammatory benefits and helps ease countless skin conditions, including Psoriasis as it destroys free radicals and speeds up healing times.
For best results, consume turmeric supplements with added piperine (black pepper extract) as this helps the body to absorb up to 2000 times more curcumin than it would without it.
Use olive oil –
Olive oil is full of omega 3 fatty acids which have been found to reduce and prevent inflammation. This means that the omega 3s can basically help ease and prevent the symptoms of a Psoriasis breakout.
Not only should you cook with olive oil, but you can also apply it to the affected area as it will soften, loosen, and soothe the affected areas. This in turn will help you to remove dead and flaking skin whilst you shower.
Try to relax –
Stress is a common trigger for many an autoimmune condition, including psoriasis. Studies have found that individuals with elevated stress levels are far more likely to suffer from psoriasis than those who are relatively relaxed.
Although easier said than done, try to relax and not stress out about the psoriasis, and anything else you can think of, as this will do your psoriasis, and indeed your health, no good whatsoever.
