In many cases, herbal treatments can greatly improve psoriasis. This skin condition is characterised by scaly silver patches which are a result of over-active skin tissue replication. Cells accumulate at a faster rate than they can be shed. Itching and bleeding are common. Psoriasis has a habit of coming and going and the longer you have had it, the longer it may take to clear up…so have patience.
One of the ways I like to work with psoriasis is by correcting liver function. When the liver is not operating adequately, blood may be full of toxins and this can manifest on the skin. Episodes of psoriasis can also be triggered by trauma, emotional stress and infection. Often immune system problems have some involvement. So it is important that any herbal mixture contain herbs that target these factors.
Creams are often an effective way to soothe the skin topically. Apply twice daily to the affected area. (Calendula, St Johns wort and essential oil of tea tree and lavender). This will treat the surface and help relieve symptoms, however it is best to balance the whole body and ensure a long-lasting treatment. The following herbal will assist to do just this.
