What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is chronic, an autoimmune skin condition that results in red patches covered with white flakes. Skin patches usually occur over elbows, knees, back, and scalp, though psoriasis can affect other parts of the body as well. Psoriasis is a non-contagious disorder, which means it does not spread with touch or physical contact.

Can Homeopathy treat Psoriasis?
Homeopathy is suggested to be used as the first choice for treatment for psoriasis. Psoriasis is not just a skin disease, but it results from the faulty functioning of the immune system. The disease is deeply seated and hence it needs a systematic and well-planned treatment. Homeopathy has the potential to stimulate the body’s natural healing capacity and restore the disturbed immune system. Homeopathic medicines address and work at the root cause of the ailment and restore the deviated immunity to normal.
How does Homeopathy work?
Allopathic medicines suppress symptoms of Psoriasis and provide temporary relief with long-term effects on the body. However, the prescription of allopathic treatment only includes immunosuppressant which harms a person’s body and further damage the vital organs.
On the other hand, homeopathy promotes the inclusion of naturally driven therapies and herbal remedies to ease the symptoms and eradicate the cause of illness. This helps in treating the patient from within and secures a healthy and balanced life ahead
