Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. The immune system mistakenly activates a reaction in the skin cells, which speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis symptoms are raised, red, inflamed lesions, silvery scaly plaques, dry skin that may crack and bleed, pitted nails or separation from the nail bed, small, red, individual spots and itching, burning or soreness of the skin. Common triggers include stress, infections, an adidification of the body, hormonal disorders, skin lesions and injuries, bug bites, sunburns, environmental toxins, cold, smoking, alcohol, certain medications and a lack of fumaric acid.
There are several types of psoriasis, including psoriasis vulgaris, guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis and pustular psoriasis. Symptoms vary depending on the type of psoriasis the patient has. Plaque psoriasis, the most common form of psoriasis, causes itchy skin spots, red patches, and thick flaky lesions to form. Psoriasis can also affect the joints (psoriatic arthritis). Psoriasis is not contagious. A predisposition for psoriasis is inherited in genes.
In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of psoriasis, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, the immune system and strengthening the body's circulation and connective tissue. It cleans, de-acidifies the body, is mineralizing and leads to a balanced life energy. The body will be purified and the dissolved metabolic waste, acids and toxins are excreted through the gut, urinary tract, lungs and skin.
Psoriasis can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Mineral deficiency and acidification in turn weaken the hormonal system, connective tissue and immune system. Also a defective metabolism favors psoriasis and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution. Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat psoriasis.
Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.
First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment of psoriasis offered in this guide:
Homeopathy was developed about 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of Similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.
It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of psoriasis. The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.
What happens if you choose the wrong remedy? Nothing. Just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.
The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.
Schuessler salts (also named homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, biochemistry) for the treatment of psoriasis
In the 19th Century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback. In his studies Schuessler discovered twelve mineral compounds, comprised each of a base and an acid, which play a crucial role in the function and structure of the body. He developed his own system with which many diseases can be treated in a natural way (also psoriasis).
Schuessler focused his search on mineral salts and trace elements, which are found in every cell of the body and called his method of healing "Biochemistry" (chemistry of life). It is based on the assumption that nearly every disease is caused because of the lack of a specific mineral salt. This leads to dysregulations inside the cells. The molecules cannot flow freely.
A mineral salt deficiency arises from the fact that the cells cannot optimally use the minerals. To improve their absorption, mineral salts therefore have to be highly diluted (potentized). Schuessler used the homeopathic potencies D3 (3x), D6 (6x) and D12 (12x) for his therapy. In general, the D6 (dilution 1:1 million) or D12 (1:1 trillion) is taken.
Acupressure for the selftreatment of psoriasis
Acupressure und Acupuncture come from the Far East. Because of their great success they are now becoming very popular with us. During the acupuncture treatment needles are pierced into specific points. During the acupressure treatment these points are pressed, massaged or rapped. Both treatment methods have the advantage that they do not have any side effects when used correctly.
About 400 acupuncture points are used constantly, but much more are known. They lie on the 12 main meridians and the special meridians, which must be imagined as the energy pathways of the body. As long as the energy is distributed evenly throughout the energy channels, the person is healthy. When the energy flow is disrupted, the person is sick. By treating certain points, the energy between the meridians will be balanced and the patient gets enough power to become healthy.
In this homeopathic and naturopathic adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat psoriasis with Homeopathy, herbal tinctures, Schuessler salts and Acupressure. I will present you the most proven homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts, including the appropriate potency and dosage. Naturopathy works holistically and treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success, joy of life and especially your health.
Psoriasis - Treatment with Homeopathy
- Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. The immune system mistakenly activates a reaction in the skin cells, which speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells. There are several types of psoriasis, including psoriasis vulgaris, guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis and pustular psoriasis. Symptoms vary depending on the type of psoriasis the patient has. Plaque psoriasis, the most common form of psoriasis, causes itchy skin spots, red patches, and thick flaky lesions to form. Psoriasis can also affect the joints through a related condition called psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis is not contagious. A predisposition for psoriasis is inherited in genes.
Psoriasis symptoms are raised, red, inflamed lesions, silvery scaly plaques, dry skin that may crack and bleed, small, red, individual spots, itching, burning, or soreness of the skin, pitted nails or separation from the nail bed. Common triggers include stress, infection, an adidification of the body, hormonal disorders, skin lesions and injuries, bug bites, sunburns, environmental toxins, cold, smoking, alcohol, certain medications and a lack of fumaric acid.
In addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment of psoriasis, you may make a de-acidification health cure of your body with the following recipe:
320 grams of Sodium bicarbonate (Natrium hydrogenkarbonat)
50 grams of Potassium hydrogen carbonate (Kalium hydrogencarbonat)
70 grams of Calcium citrate (Calciumcitrat)
40 grams of Calcium phosphate (Calciumphosphat)
20 grams of Magnesium citrate (Magnesiumcitrat)
Dissolve 1 teaspoon in 250 ml of lukewarm water daily at 10 and 16 clock and drink in small sips.
During the day time, in addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment, drink 3 cups of tea for the kidneys. In the evening drink one cup of tea for the liver. This will clean the blood and connective tissue and the toxins, acids and metabolic waste products will be extracted quickly.
1) Liver support tea and detoxing the body:
Semen Cardui marianae 50.0 (milk thistle), Rhizoma Tormentillae 15.0 (bloodroot), Radix cum Herba Taraxaci 30.0 (dandelion root and herb), Fructi anisidine (anise) 20.0, Fructi Foeniculi (fennel) 20.0, Folia crispae mentha (mint) 15.0
Mix the above listed items together. Add 1 tablespoon into 1 cup (250 ml) cold water and cover for 8 hours. Cook 3 minutes. Let sit covered for 10 minutes and then strain. Drink in the evening.
2) Tea for the kidneys and the extraction of metabolic waste and acids through the urinary tract:
Folia Betulae (birch leaves) 30.0, Herba urticae (nettle herb) 30.0, Herba Equiseti (horsetail) 20.0, Herba Virgaureae (goldenrod) 20.0
Mix the above listed ingredients together. Add 2 teaspoons into 1 cup (250 ml) of hot water, let sit covered for 10 minutes. Strain to drink. Drink 3 cups daily.
3) If you suffer from allergies (often a cause of psoriasis attack), alternate daily the 2 above mentioned teas with a tea for the treatment of allergies to sensitize your body for the treatment of psoriasis with Schuessler salts and homeopathy:
Radix Imperatoriae 20 g, Radix Pimpinellae 20 g, Herba Euphrasiae 10 g, Herba Rutae hortensis 30 g, Rhizoma Graminis 10 g, Herba Absinthii 10 g
Mix the above listed ingredients together. Add 1 teaspoon into 1 cup (250 ml) of water, cook 2 minutes, let sit covered for 10 minutes. Strain to drink. Drink 3 cups daily.
Pay attention to an adequate hydration (water, tea, unsweetened juices)
How to calculate your daily fluid requirements: Multiply your weight in kilos by 4 and divide the sum by 100. The result shows your daily liquid requirements in liters without physical exertion. Alcoholic beverages do not count.
As an example: Your weight is 80 kg. Multiply 80 times 4 and divide by 100. You need about 3.2 liters of fluid every day.
The kidneys can only extract metabolic waste products if there is enough liquid available. If you exercise a lot, you need more fluid. The water supports the elimination of toxins and waste products of the metabolism. In addition, it prevents hunger. Drink the most until the afternoon. In the evening drink as little as possible to relieve the bladder.
Homeopathic treatment of psoriasis
For enhancing the effect of the homeopathic medicine dissolve the globules in a small glas of water and drink in small sips. Swallow after 1 minute. For stirring please do not use metal spoon. Do not count the globules in the hand. The manual welding destroys the sprayed drug. Avoid during the homeopathic treatment the consumption of nicotine, alcohol and spicy foods. They reduce the effectiveness of the sensitive homeopathic remedies.
