What Is Psoriasis:

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales. The condition is not infectious and most people are affected only in small patches on their body. Psoriasis Ayurveda treatment is very effective and recurrences are very few.

Psoriasis Causes:

  • Alcohol
  • Disorder in the immune system.
  • Drugs (Lithium, Beta-blockers, Anti-malarials, NSAIDs)
  • Emotional stress
  • Family history of Psoriasis
  • Hormonal changes (Disease peaks during puberty and menopause)
  • HIV
  • Injury to the skin (skin infection, inflammation, excessive scratching)
  • Smoking
  • Strong sunlight
  • Streptococcal infections

Psoriasis in Ayurveda:


In Ayurveda, all skin diseases are grouped under a broad heading of Kushta Roga Which are further divided in
Mahakustha and
Kshudra Kushta.

Ekakushta is one such disease explained under the heading of Kshudra kushta (minor skin ailments)

The features of Ekakushta and Kitibh Kushta closely resemble the characteristic features of Psoriasis. Hence most of the clinicians co-relate these with psoriasis.

Ayurveda Pathology of Psoriasis:

The intake of Incompatible Food and Accumulation of Toxins are the main causes of psoriasis.

Poor dietary habits, consumption of food items that can’t be eaten together the most common of these are fruit and dairy (therefore no fruit & yogurt or strawberries & cream), meat and dairy, fish and dairy and over consumption of yogurt, dark gram, fish, harsh and salted things etc. can activate the pathogenesis. Liquor and tobacco utilization will act as a catalyst here. Life full with anxiety & stress also lead to Psoriasis.

These combinations lead to the toxin accumulation in the body that directly attack the skin causing psoriasis.

Due to the above said factors, all the three doshas (mainly Vata and Kapha) are vitiated and they further vitiate Twak (skin), Rakta (blood), Mamsa (flesh), Ambu (lasika-serum). Thus, they lead to manifestation of skin lesions in various parts of the body.

 meat and dairy, fish and dairy.

Avoid excess intake of sugar and salt.

These combinations lead to the toxin accumulation in the body that directly attack the skin causing psoriasis.

Eat Fresh Fruit and vegetables.

Buttermilk is also specially recommended. For this simply blend one quarter yogurt and three quarters of water. To this one can add spices like cumin powder, cinnamon, grated ginger, and cardamom. Buttermilk has astringent qualities and helps to eliminate excess heat. A glass 3-4 times a day.
