Understanding Psoriasis – the unconventional way
Psoriasis can be simply described as ‘the external manifestation’ of the body’s attempt to throw off internal toxins. In other words the skin is doing what the bowels and kidneys should be doing. Psoriasis is a buildup of toxins in your system and the consequence of inadequate functioning elimination system. Its considered an autoimmune disease because the body’s immune system abnormally reacts to itself. Instead of the skin replacing itself every 30 days, the skin cells reproduce at an incredibly faster rate of 3 -4 days causing it all to pile up on the outermost layer. Hence people with this condition end up having scaly skin that stands out in large red patches on their body.
It has been a dermatological enigma for scientific community that has long classified it as ‘incurable’. That may be true for all the allopathic doctors who simply do not understand the cause of psoriasis in the first place. What one sees on the outside (skin) is the physical evidence of something happening inside the body. It is like looking at the tip of an iceberg assuming it to be the entire structure. So most of the doctors end up treating it from the outside but the disease will keep coming back again and again, month after month, year after year until the patient has exhausted all available forms of relief. But Homeopathy has time and again shown that it can be healed in a natural way without any systemic or topical drug (that often has harmful side effect), steroid creams, potentially dangerous forms of ultra violet light or messy tar baths.
Homeopathy enables the patients skin to renew itself totally and completely without the psoriatic lesion, rash or abrasion that it can leave behind. It provides a natural way for psoriasis sufferers to put their lives in order and enjoy their lives without the burdened by this disfiguring disease. But for the treatment to work patient must first understand for what it is; second, it is important to get on the right track, to rid oneself of the disease; and third, the patient must have patience and persistence

Psoriasis Causes: unraveling the mystery
Psoriasis manifests when the walls in certain areas of the intestinal tract become thin and porous. This causes the toxic substances to seep through these walls and enter the lymphatic system and invade the blood stream. The body’s natural purification system, primarily the liver and kidneys try to filter out these toxins which build up in the blood. But the relentless building up of toxins prove to be more than what these organs can handle. At this point the body’s secondary purification system attempt to aid in the process of detoxification. When the liver, the major filtering gland of the bady is overloaded , the skin comes to the rescue and helps to eliminate the toxins.
Leaky gut syndrome is a common health disorder in which the basic organ defect is an intestinal lining which is more porous than normal. The gut become leaky when the abnormally large spaces between the cells of the gut wall allow the entry of toxic material into the blood stream that would in normal healthy condition be repelled and eliminated. This allows parasites, fungi, bacteria and their toxins, fat, protein, undigested waste enter the blood stream. The leaky gut is always associated with auto immune sidorders, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome etc.
Psoriatic arthritis – 1 in 3 People with psoriasis often develop Psoriatic arthritis generally between 30 and 50 years of age. Other serious health conditions like diabetes, depression, cardio vascular disease are linked to psoriasis (also known as comorbidities). This condition manifests in the form of Joint pain, stiffness and swelling and like psoriasis may flare up with alternate periods of remission.

Homeopathy and Psoriasis Treatment?
Can homeopathy cure Psoriasis? is a common refrain among patients who have not found any succor in other forms of treatment. They have heard Homeopathy has cured thousands of Psoriasis suffering patients where no other remedy was effective. Treatment is most effective in Homeopathy because it weighs in the emotional state of the patient (miasmic tendency). Homeopathic medicines like Zea italica Q, 10 drops taken in 1/2 cup water have proved curative in cases where no other remedy was effective. Homeopathy addresses issues pertaining to over sensitivity among patients to changes in weather specially from hot dry to cold seasons. Such people are more susceptible to Psoriasis whose occurrence is strongly linked to weather changes (crusts disappear in summer & reappear in winter). It is also particularly useful in syphilitic patients, tuberculous prone children or those having a history of tuberculosis in the family. Psoriasis responds very well to homeopathic treatment but it can be lengthy in chronic cases and requires patience.
