4.Living on alkaline diet is recommended in Psoriasis Patients,According to Ayurveda, it is an imbalance of fire energy. Consuming food rich in acids or consuming acidic diet is not at all recommended. All fruits ( except citrus fruits) , are recommended.

5.Try to avoid acidic foods like frozen food, packaged food, refined flour food, sour fruits like lemons. Also avoid yogurt, non-vegetarian diet, alcohol as they are considered hot or acidic in nature. Avoid soft drinks as they contain carbon dioxide, which is another toxin for the body.

6.Coconut water is good to drink. It is one of the most effective home remedies for psoriasis.

10.Ayurveda does emphasize on effect of stress in Psoriasis, Having psoriasis is, stressful for the patient, as lesions are visible, people may stare and not want to come near. Yoga especially pranayama greatly relieves stress and speeds the process of healing.

  • Shirodhara Massage

    Atharva Ayurveda that offer shirodhara are careful to create a comfortable and tranquil environment with atmospheric background music and a soft treatment table.
    Lying on your back, your body will be cocooned in warmed towels and your head will be positioned under the oil ‘fountain’ – a metal bottle with a slow-flowing spout from which the oils will stream gently onto the forehead.

  • Abhyanga Massage

    Abhyanga, the Ayurvedic form of massage, functions as both a strengthening and reducing therapy. There are four main reasons for giving or receiving an Abhyanga:
      • The eliminate excess water and fat deposits
      • To purify the blood and tissues of toxins
      • To strengthen and rejuvenate
      • To maintain strength and balance

  • Panchakarma

    Panchakarma therapy is also used as a purification therapy to cleanse the body before starting a treatment. A diseased body can be compared to a soiled cloth which can not be colored as we desire. Hence to attain the maximum benefits , the body has to be purified or cleaned before starting the treatment.The cleared channels help medicines to penetrate the deeper tissues.
