Although psoriasis is directly related to your autoimmune system, there is a multitude of 100% natural internal and external treatment options for you to explore. Turning to a combination of the treatment options below may be the best way to naturally tackle your psoriasis once and for all. Even if your psoriasis is still present, the natural solutions below are likely to drastically reduce its severity – so that your flare-ups are less frequent and less severe.
Know Your Psoriasis Triggers
An excellent place to begin when looking for natural treatment options for your psoriasis is to pay closer attention to what your body is trying to tell you. Most people who suffer from psoriasis find that there are triggers which worsen their symptoms or spark a new flare-up. Some of the most common triggers include:
- Excessively cold air
- Excessively dry air
- Minor abrasions such as a cut or scrape
- Insufficient exposure to sunlight
- Higher than average levels of stress
- Excessive alcohol consumption
Move To An Anti-Inflammatory Diet
Psoriasis ignites both internal and external inflammation. While you may not be able to see or feel the internal inflammation, you can certainly see the external repercussions. By making the move to an anti-inflammatory diet, you can lessen the likelihood of both internal and external inflammation caused by psoriasis. An anti-inflammatory diet includes a diet high in fruits and vegetables, and low in processed sugars.
Increase Your Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Consuming a healthy amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet is essential for a multitude of reasons, including internal hydration – and internal and external anti-inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acid can be taken in supplement form, or added to your diet in foods such as:
- Fortified Dairy Products
- Flax Seeds
Make The Switch To An All-Natural Soap – Made From Ingredients Designed To Combat Psoriasis
As much as you may appreciate the look, feel, or aroma of your favourite store-bought soap, if the body soap you use is not made from 100% natural ingredients, it is likely increasing the side effects of your psoriasis. Your skin is your body’s largest and most vulnerable organ, and the last thing you need when you struggle from psoriasis is a daily body soap that further decreases hydration and increases inflammation. The harsh chemicals used in most store-bought body soaps may well strip your skin of its natural vitamins, minerals and hydration.
While switching to an all-natural soap will help you to effectively improve and maintain the hydration and pH balance of your skin, you can take things one step further by turning to an all-natural soap made from ingredients that naturally combat psoriasis.
