Psoriasis Diet and Natural Treatment Options

We’re always looking for ideas on how to better our and treat our symptoms so we 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.

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.

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.
