Scaly skin with heavy itching with irritation is Psoriasis. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. This looks bad. It can end with stiff and swollen joints. The arthritis caused by Psoriasis is known as Psoriatic Arthritis. Sukhayu provides Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis.

In Ayurveda description of skin diseases is done under a common heading and heading is “Kushth”. Kushth covers all skin problems. Ayurveda has widely discussed these all conditions according to Doshas and conditions. Broadly skin diseases is classified in two groups- Maha-Kushtha and Kshudra Kushtha.

Maha, represents something “big” and big here is the manifestation of the disease. Aggravation of the Doshas. Skills required for treatment- everything BIG. Maha Kushthas are always hard to treat. Deep seated in the skin. These spread to the deeper locations of the skin. This is a broad level classification as per Ayurvedic Seers.

Second comes Kshudra Kushtha. Less complicated. More easy to treat then Maha Kushtha. These are more subtle. Kshudra Kushtha effects surface only.

About Psoriasis in Ayurveda

Psoriasis is a condition which is increasing many folds all of sudden around the world. Psoriasis can be correlated to the one of these conditions from Kshudra Kushtha. Yet,  there is no strong and one sided analogy of Psoriasis.

There is excessive scale formation in Psoriasis, thus it relate with “EkKushtha”.  EkKushtha is a condition among 11 Kshudra Kushthas. Charaka writes about EkKushtha-

अस्वेदनम महावास्तु यन्मत्स्यश्कलोपमम ! तदेक्कुष्ठम ….

Scaly skin like fish. It occurs in big patches. These are common in EkKushtha and Psoriasis. Once we look a patient with Psoriasis, same is finding. Lot of patches with white scales.

Ayurvedic treatment for Psoriasis

When we look at the treatment and causative factors of this condition. It is very much clear that there are several factors responsible for onset and spread of this condition. For treatment, Kshudra Kushthas are easy to treat. When we correlate Psoriasis with EkKushtha- it should be easy to treat. Not very much true in case of Psoriasis. After 11 years of practice we have found that people don’t follow the do’s and don’ts honestly during the treatment which makes the condition complicated and results are not that good in many of the cases.

At Sukhayu Ayurved, we are giving the proper Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis. We do two folded treatment in Psoriasis. In certain cases we just give medicines. If Doshas are vitiated badly we recommend Panchakarma. For Panchakarma, a patient need to stay in-house for almost 15 days with us. We follow inclusion and exclusion criteria. We consider- Age, Other diseases and lot of factors.

The treatment as said by Charak Samhita is-

वमनविरेचनयोगा: कल्पोक्ता: कुष्ठिनाम प्रोक्तव्या: ………

Vamana and Virechana are indicated in all skin related diseases. These are deep seated toxins of body which reflects on skin. Panchakarma removes these deep seated toxins.  Thus Panchakarma ensures good results in skin diseases.

Plan treatment for psoriasis

Sukhayu, are hard liners. We do believe in Ayurvedic Text and we do follow everything according to text. We strongly condemn using some different methodology in name of Ayurved and doing some trial and error things in name of treatment.

The best way to understand a disease is to access the things in a better way which cannot be possible through phone consultations at all. Please come with prior appointment. We will be able to attend you properly. As we say again and again- “WE BELIEVE IN TREATMENTS NOT IN SELLING SOME MEDICINES” ….
