Psoriasis is typically perceived as a skin condition, but in actuality, it is a dermatological (skin) autoimmune condition that affects the skin.
People with psoriasis develop patches of red skin in varying shades on different areas of their body, such as the knees, elbows, back, chest, palms, feet, and face. The affected skin can be extremely itchy and painful, with scaling that resembles peeling off of skin flakes. Psoriasis most commonly develops in adulthood, but it is possible for children to this condition as well. Conventional treatments for psoriasis mainly focus on managing symptoms and reducing flare-ups through medications and ointments that can further impair the immune system. Prolonged use of immune-suppressing medications may lead to additional body imbalances and an increased risk for developing infections.
Natural and holistic treatments that address inflammation and dysfunction in the body can be effective in treating psoriasis for a sustained period. There are underlying causes and distinctive pathophysiology, which refers to changes in the normal function of the body that give rise to signs and symptoms, that needs to be understood before looking at any psoriasis treatment. It is very important to comprehend these aspects in relation to psoriasis and any skin disorder and to identify the specific triggers and contributing factors that lead to your symptoms.
