5 best Homeopathic medicines for Psoriasis by Dr Harsh Sharma

A skin disease that worsens every winters is Psoriasis. A patient suffering from psoriasis dreads the winters just because of this. He or she tends to remain well throughout the summers. As the weather starts to cool, he starts worrying. The worry is not unfounded. The skin of the psoriasis patient can get quite bad. It itches badly and even starts bleeding after scratching. There are large patches of eruptions with whitish scale formation on the top of the skin.

What is Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune inflammatory skin disease in which the skin cells proliferate profusely. The rate of formation of the skin cells is far higher than normal. It can even be 1000 times the normal rate. Due to this increased rate of formation of skin cells, the immature cells keep getting pushed on to the surface of the skin. That is why the skin cells are large, whitish flakes like that of dandruff.

What are the symptoms of Psoriasis

  • The inflammation of the skin causes redness and itching. In fact, it is itching which is the most troublesome for the patient. At times there is so much itching that one is forced to scratch till it bleeds and becomes raw.
  • The skin becomes worse in winters. The psoriasis patients are relatively better in summer. When the weather becomes warm, the skin improves on its own. As winter approaches, the skin lesions start surfacing. It is not only the itching that troubles the patient.
  • The appearance of the skin can be quite bad. This makes the patient feel shy about his or her appearance. This is more so if the arms or legs or hands or face or scalp are affected.
  • In some cases, the joints also get affected. This is known as psoriatic arthritis. There may be pain and swelling in the joints along with skin lesions.

What causes Psoriasis

Although it is understood that certain conditions tend to aggravate Psoriasis, the exact cause of Psoriasis is still not clear. A few known factors that can aggravate Psoriasis are as follows-

  • Obesity-Being overweight is known to be an important contributing factor.
  • Stress- Mental stress can be another factor which tends to increase the symptoms of psoriasis.
  • Injury- Any injury to a particular body part can cause psoriasis to develop there.
  • Drugs- Some medicines are also known to increase the incidence of this problem.
  • Skin dryness- If the skin is dry, the itching and flake formation tends to increase.

Psoriasis is not infectious- It does not spread from one person to another

A common myth that persists with general people is that psoriasis may spread from one patient to another healthy person by contact. Here one needs to understand that psoriasis is not contagious. This means that it cannot spread from one person to another. In fact, psoriasis is not an infectious disease. It does not occur due to infection of any sort. That is why it does not spread from one person to another.

Treatment of Psoriasis

When it comes to the treatment of psoriasis, it is a general perception that it is incurable. This perception is not exactly right. It is based on the view and experience of the allopathic system in the treatment of psoriasis. The mainstay of the allopathic system of medicine in psoriasis happens to be steroids. The regular or prolonged use of steroids is counter productive and can produce a lot of side effects. This is in direct contrast with the homeopathic system. In the homeopathic system there are no side effects at all.

Psoriasis treatment in Homeopathy- Natural Homeopathic remedies for Psoriasis

Homeopathy is far more effective in the treatment of psoriasis and these homeopathic medicines are completely natural and do not contain any chemical compounds at all. The homeopathic remedies do not intend to suppress this inflammation.

In fact, they intend to correct the cause that has resulted in this indiscriminate cell division and also the inflammation. Once these two things are set right, the symptoms disappear on their own. The skin lesions clear up and the skin starts looking normal as if nothing had ever happened.

Homeopathy for Psoriasis – permanent treatment of Psoriasis

The treatment of psoriasis with homeopathic medicines has a very significant advantage over any other form of treatment. While other forms of treatment are just palliative in nature, homeopathic treatment of psoriasis is permanent. This means that once the patient is cured, there is no return of symptoms. He or she can live a disease free and medicine free life.

5 best Homeopathic medicines for Psoriasis

At the very outset, I wish to state that when it comes to treating Psoriasis with Homeopathy, it requires some patience on the part of both the patient and the doctor to get good results in the homeopathic treatment of psoriasis. That is essentially because of the nature of the disease and not because of any shortcoming of the homeopathic system of medicine.

Psoriasis is an inveterate disease and can cause a lot of trouble and anxiety to the affected patient. That is why I am saying that it requires some patience on the part of the patient and doctor.

Often patients start treatment and expect instant results from the treatment. They complain and whine to the doctor that their problem is not getting cured. This puts pressure on the doctor and if he is not experienced enough, he ends up changing the line of treatment under pressure from the patient. This can often lead to a golden chance of cure of psoriasis being missed.

Here is a list of the 5 best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis followed by a brief note about the medicines –

  • Graphites – best medicine for psoriasis with constipation

  • Mezereum – best medicine in homeopathy for psoriasis of scalp

  • Arsenic Iodatum- best remedy for psoriasis with multiple colours

  • Sepia- best psoriasis homeopathic medicine with foul odor

  • Thyroidinum- best homeopathy medicine for psoriasis with obesity

This list is based on my personal experience and is not an exhaustive list. Many other medicines are used in the treatment of this disorder and the right selection of medicine may vary from patient to patient, depending upon the symptoms of each individual patient. A brief description of the indications of the above mentioned 5 best homeopathic remedies for psoriasis is given below-

1. Graphites-One of the best homeopathic remedies for psoriasis with constipation

In cases where constipation is also present along with psoriasis, Graphites is one of the best homeopathic remedies for psoriasis. The patient is usually chilly which means that he cannot tolerate cold easily. There may be thick sticky discharge from the eruptions. The skin becomes rough and hard.

The bends of joints and groin area is much more affected. In some cases, eczema may also be present with psoriasis. In female patients, there may be disturbance in the menstrual cycle too. Mostly, the periods are short and scanty. The periods are usually delayed.

2. Mezereum-One of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis on the scalp

In cases where the primary area that is involved happens to be the head or the scalp, Mezereum is one of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis. The head tends to be covered with thick and leathery crusts under which there is collection of pus. There is often formation of white scabs on the scalp. Scaly eruptions are also seen.

3. Arsenic Iodatum-One of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis with multiple colours

In cases where the patches of psoriasis are varied in colour, Ars-iod is one of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis. The skin is dry, scaly and itching. The scales are large in size. On exfoliation, the scales leave behind the raw exuding surface. The patient is usually thin and emaciated.

4. Sepia-One of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis with foul odor from skin

When there is foul odor from the eruptions and the affected area, Sepia is one of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis. It is a deep acting medicine and should not be repeated often. Women are more likely to be affected and that too after menopause. The patient is of yellowish complexion. Weakness, irritability and indifference are also present along with the usual symptoms of psoriasis.

5. Thyroidinum-One of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis with obesity

In cases where obesity is a concomitant symptom of Psoriasis, Thyroidinum is one of the best homeopathic medicines for psoriasis. The itching is worse at night. At times, there is itching without any visible skin lesions. The skin is dry and feels impoverished.

  12. Hello Dr
    I have been diagnosed with psoriasis on my fingers for which the allopathic Dr prescribed Sorifix. Though this ointment is able to control the formation of skin thickening it does not provide a cure. If I stop applying the ointment the problem will start once again. Then it takes a few days for the skin to get back to normal. Now some tiny red spots have started appearing on my chest and shoulders which are itching too. They are not scaly but look more like rashes. Don’t know if it is the same disease.
    I generally prefer cold weather to hot summer weather. I’m diabetic since last 6 years. Type II. Under medication sugar levels are under control more or less. Sometimes going up to 140 (fasting)
    What homeopathic medicine would you prescribe for my ailment. How can I pay for the consultation. Can I purchase the medicine by transferring money to any account or from your online outlet?
    Thank you
    Awaiting your early response.
