Psoriasis Diet and Natural Treatment Options
We’re always looking for ideas on how to better treat our symptoms and what can make our flare-ups less severe. This article covers some interesting ideas for anyone suffering from psoriasis.
1. Reduce Stress
Stress is also known to play a big role in psoriasis, which is why mind-body therapies and stress management can really help naturally heal psoriasis. Prayer, meditation and hypnosis can all help. Studies actually show that people who meditate before receiving light therapy have better outcomes than people who had light therapy alone. (8)
2. Exercise and Drink Water
It may sound too simple, but exercise and drinking plenty of water are two easy and effective ways to help heal psoriasis. When it comes to bathing, you definitely don’t want to use water that’s too hot because this can further dry and inflame your skin. Soaking in a lukewarm bath containing dead sea salts, Epsom salt or oats for around 15 minutes can help remove scales and calm itching. Be sure to apply moisturizer to your skin as soon as you get out of a bath or shower — this way you can seal some water into your skin, which can help to calm and heal psoriasis patches.
