What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin disease, quite common as it affect up to 3% of the population. It is not contagious. It can be more or less severe, from one small lesion, to affliction of the entire body surface. In these extreme cases, psoriasis can be a significant problem for well-being.

Psoriasis usually develops slowly. The characteristic psoriatic plaques are red, sharply demarcated, and bleed easily. These plaques do not usually itch, and will heal without leaving scar tissue or affecting hair growth.

Herbs for psoriasis

Let have a look at herbsproperties that are the most useful:

  • anti-inflammatory herbs reduce inflammation, and thus skin discomfort such as itching.
  • relaxant herbs ease the anxiety/stress that often accompanies psoriasis, and can also decrease itching and even inflammation, due to their relaxing effects on the nervous system.
  • diuretic herbs ensure adequate elimination of toxins.

And now, here are herbs that have these properties:

  • Burdock and dandelion are recommended to flush out your system. These diuretic herbs work by helping to rid the body of toxins that may be making your immune system react and help keep plaque psoriasis skin cells from forming.
  • Nettle is recommended because it helps to reduce the level of histamine, a compound produce by the body that triggers an inflammatory response. The herb is therefore useful against skin conditions leading to inflammation (psoriasis and hives notably).
  • Finally, Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties, and is antiseptic, which can be useful to fight bacteria that could cause further infection of the skin. It is also a relaxant herb, useful if your psoriasis occurs during stress/anxiety periods of your live.
