Do you know that over 200 million people worldwide have psoriasis? So, what causes this traumatic skin disease to people? Is there any specific reason?
Psoriasis is a progressive inflammatory disorder of the skin. Some researchers believe that an inherent tendency is responsible for its development and progression. Although, precise psoriasis causes are still a conjecture, what’s obvious is the presentation i.e. psoriasis symptoms — red patches or plaques on the skin, covered by silvery scales.
One good thing is that psoriasis is not contagious. You cannot get psoriasis if you touch someone with psoriasis, or swim in the same swimming pool. Yet, any which way you look at it, psoriasis is more than an itchy problem; it is a major social stigma.
How does it happen and why?
Psoriasis often runs in families. For instance, if both parents are affected, their children have a 60 per cent chance of developing the condition.Interestingly, some people with mild psoriasis symptoms may be blissfully unaware of its existence.
All the same, the scaly problem can affect people of all ages — even though it has a distinctive tendency to affect young adults around age 20 and the elderly in their fifth or sixth decade.
Treatment of Psoriasis
Conventional modes of treatment for psoriasis are based on immunosuppressant. They may clear the skin in a few days to few weeks but it would recur as soon as the effect of the medicine wears off. Homoeopathy helps to stimulate body’s natural healing capacity and restores the deviated immunity back to normalcy. Artificial ultra-violet lights therapies are known to cause burns but homoeopathy has no such side-effects as the medicines are oral medicines. Homoeopathy is non-addictive and can also eliminate the need to consume conventional medicines. Crude medicines contain high amounts of lead, arsenic and mercury which are known to damage the vital organs. Homoeopathic medicines are made from natural substances in potentised form and treat psoriasis gently without damaging the vital organs. Homoeopathy helps to deal with ‘Stress’ more effectively and helps to control the intensity of complaints during seasonal variations. If homoeopathy is considered as a treatment option in the early stages of the disease, then the overall control of the disease in future is much better.
