Through the use of herbal medicines, both applied directly to the skin and drunk as a tea, doctors throughout the past hundreds of years have helped literally millions of psoriasis sufferers. In modern times, research has confirmed that Chinese herbal medicines can be safe and effective for the treatment of psoriasis, while offering good long term resolution – even after treatment has stopped!
The secret to a successful treatment of psoriasis lies not only in the natural medicines, it is also about a proper diagnosis. Doctors of Chinese medicine, skilled in the treatment of skin disease, know that psoriasis manifests in many different ways – in many different types of people – hence the treatment needs to be done on an individual basis. Every herbal prescription is thus a reflection of the person it is meant to treat. No two people with psoriasis will have the exact same prescription, unless they are identical in their presentations.
Key points about psoriasis:
- Psoriasis is a systemic disease, meaning that it is being generated on the inside of your body. As such, psoriasis is associated with other problems like; recurrent miscarriage, poor cardiovascular health, and diabetes.
- The treatment of psoriasis needs to involve practices that work from the inside out and are based on the individual.
- Modern medical treatments for psoriasis are relatively new and their long term health consequences are still not totally known. Always seek out practitioners who have experience in treating psoriasis with safer methods first, before going into the land of the “experimental”.
- 2000 years of clinical trials using Chinese herbal medicine for the treatment of psoriasis has shown them to be both effective and safe, when prescribed by a qualified practitioner. I always recommend their use as a first choice treatment.
