PSORIASIS:Effective Natural Cures
Psoriasis is a skin disease that puts a strain on the physical and mental endurance of those affected
and the ability to treat it appropriately with traditional cures. However a natural cure can finally
solve this problem.
Below we analyze natural cures for psoriasis, its mechanisms and current medical therapies.
WHAT is the PSORIASIS
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease, not infectious or contagious.
Psoriasis worsens due to stress and is found in 2-3% of people. It represent a cardiovascular risk factor.
Psoriasis development occurs due to an overgrowth skin cells disorder. Autoimmune, genetic and
environmental factors are involved in its appearance.
Psoriatic lesions are characterized by areas of increased skin cell growth, accelerated skin turnover
(approximately 10 times, compared to normal skin). There is also incomplete maturation of keratinocytes
(skin cells) and maintenance of nuclei in the outer layer of the skin (parakeratosis).
In psoriatic lesions there is increased growth of immature lymphatic vessels, of new blood vessels,
WHAT are the CAUSES of PSORIASIS
Some substances released by cutaneous nerve endings during stress can take part in onset or development
of psoriasis. Some biochemical mediators produced in the skin and released by mast cells in reply to
stress, trauma and infections are involved. They damage mast cells metabolism.
Some cells (T lymphocytes) are turned on and migrate to dermis(deep layer of the skin). The result is release
of cytokines (TNF-α, interleukins) and growth factors (NGF) which cause inflammation and rapid cell growth.
However, natural remedies for psoriasis reduce presence of excess biochemical mediators, without side effects,
thus repairing cellular imbalances. There is also an increase in blood flow and appearance of serum-protein
HOW MANY KINDS of PSORIASIS are there
Several forms of psoriasis are recognized: pustular and non-pustular, plaque psoriasis (80% of cases),
guttate, inverse. It's located in elbows, knees, scalp, back, hands, feet and genital region. Fingernails and
toenails are often affected with thickening and cracks.
HOW PSORIASIS is TREATED in the TRADITIONAL WAY
Official treatment is carried out with immunosuppressive drugs (methotrexate and cyclosporine A), retinoids,
biological drugs (all with several and serious side effects).
WHAT are the NATURAL CURES for PSORIASIS
But natural cures for Psoriasis are possible thanks to action of natural substances like Calendula Officinalis
and Rhodiola rosea. They have anti-inflammatory, soothing, anti-free radical action, and normalizing on
Other natural substances, like flavoproteins and coenzymes, contribute effectively and harmlessly to the
repair of mast cell metabolism. The restoration of them cell membranes leads to a normal release of
cytokines and neuropeptides and to the rebalancing of the immune system without side effects.
