1 of the Powerful Panchakarma therapy Cure the Psoriasis .


Psoriasis is a non contagious, chronic, inflammatory skin disease.

The name psoriasis is derived from the Greek word ‘Psora’ which means Itching. Psoriasis is caused by an increased gro.wth rate of the keratinocytes from the stratum basale to stratum corneum. Normally, these cells rise to the skin’s surface once in 21 days.This rate is increased to twice in 3 weeks if you have psoriasis.This condition is indicated by thick, red skin with flaky, silvery- white scaly patches. Along with this, patients may experience itching, pain and disfigurement.

In modern terms, Psoriasis occurs when the immune system mistakes a normal skin cell for a pathogen, and sends it out. Such faulty signals cause overproduction of new skin cells.There are five types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic.

According to Ayurveda, Audumbara Kushta, one among the various types of Psoriasis is caused by imbalance in the Pitta Dosha. Pitta symbolizes digestive fire, agni, the  force behind all metabolic functions of the body.

Pitta imbalance is usually caused by faulty dietary habits and sedentary Iifestyle.The vitiated Pitta causes toxin (ama) accumulation in the body tissues such as rasa (nutrient plasma), rakta (blood), mamsa (muscles) and lasika (lymph) and contaminate them.

This leads to various skin conditions seen in Psoriasis.The disturbed or weakened agni, results in improper metabolic function which in turn disturbs higher centres.This causes the hyper function of capillaries of the skin and then scaling starts.

This disease gets worsened during Summer because of the hot climatic conditions. During summer, the rays of the sun become harsh and strong, penetrating deep into the skin and it causes severe problems. Ayurveda offers various treatments, medications psoriasis.
