Ayurvedic view

Many Ayurvedic texts have explained skin diseases that resemble Psoriasis. Psoriasis can be considered as the vitiation of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Accumulation of low potency toxins(Dooshi vishas) is the basic pathological change that takes place in the system. Irregular food habits, consumption of foodstuffs that cannot be eaten together (Eg: dairy products with fish), excessive intake of yogurt, black gram, seafood, sour and salted items can activate the pathogenesis. The alcohol and tobacco consumption acts as a catalyst here. Ayurveda has got a perfect cure for this disorder.


When it comes to treat Psoriasis then there are two types of treatments that are executed according to the severity of disease. First is ‘Shodhan’ ( detoxification) and the second one is ‘Shaman’ ( treatment with medicines). Shodhan aims at the detoxification of the body or elimination of toxins from the body. It is achieved by "Panchakarma" treatments.

Shodhan (Panchakarma Treatments)

  • Vaman- In a kapha dominant case ,consumption of medicated ghee, for 5 to 7 days, followed by inducing vomiting (Vamana).
  • Virechan- In a pitta dominant case, consumption of medicated ghee, for 5 to 7 days and followed by purgation (Virechana)
  • Takra Dhara (medicated buttermilk dripping over head and body) is done.
  • Vasti (medicated enemas) is being done for 8 days if needed.


Internal medicines like herbal formulations, concoctions and the medicated ghee have to be consumed for at least 90 days. In this condition, we normally use coconut oil infused with herbs like wrightia tinctoria, Rubia cordifolia, Hemidesmus indicus, Tinospora cordifolia, Azadirachta indica etc or some other oils like Jivantyadi Yamakam, Eladi Kera Tail, Nalpamaradi Tail etc, depending upon the condition of the Patient for the external application. In most of the cases, these are found to be highly effective. These oils can be applied on and around the patches whenever the patient feels like scratching.

Psoriasis can be cured if the patient is ready to accept the protocol and conditions fixed by the Ayurveda doctor for treatment as well as changing the diet & lifestyle. If it is in the initial stage, it can be cured easily. All depends on how the patient accepts the treatment modalities and how strictly follows the dietary protocol for the rest of the life.


  • Avoid any kind of hot and spicy food.
  • Salt and curd should be avoided.
  • Bitter gourd, bitter varieties of drumstick and all other bitter foods are very useful in this condition.
  • Flowers of neem tree are really helpful in treating Psoriasis.
  • A strict diet regime has to be followed during the entire treatment period and it is better to remain vegetarian throughout the entire process.
  • Avoid yogurt, black gram, chilies and salted things..
  • Avoid refrigerated/chilled foods.
  • One should strictly avoid junk food, oily food and spicy food.
  • Citrus foods or faruits are to be avoided as a food.
  • Preserved or fermented items like bread, pizza and pickles are the best to be avoided.
  • One should avoid alcohol, smoking and if possible, non-vegetarian diet/ red meat till the disease is cured fully.

Try to use only cotton fabrics. Nylon and synthetic fabrics aggravates this condition. Try not to scratch with nails. Psoriatic patient must keep a state of mental calmness.
