Psoriasis Treatment in Ayurveda


Psoriasis is a condition which has shown to be managed by Ayurveda. Diet (ahar) and Lifestyle (vihar) modifications have proven to be the cornerstones of management, which have been detailed out below.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Consume easy to digest, light food
  • Include bitter vegetables and gourds in your diet
  • Include old cereals and grains like wheat and barley
  • Include ghee prepared from bitters like neem (margosa) leaves
  • Foods to avoid are -eggs, milk, wheat products, nightshades (tomatoes, eggplants, and bell peppers), overly sweet, overly spicy, corn, and shellfish.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Pranayama: Bhastrika pranayama, Bahya pranayama, Anelom Vilom (AV) pranayama, Agnisaar pranayama, Bhramari pranayama, Udgeet pranayama, Kapalbhati and Nadi Shodhi should be practiced for 15 minutes. Kapalbhati pranayama removes toxins from the respiratory system and Nadi Shodhi pranayama increases the oxygen levels in the lungs tremendously which helps in cleaning the nerves. Both these pranayamas also reduce stress.
  • Asana: Postures that improve the endrocrine system and massage thyroid and parathyroid glands. Such asanas include Sarvangasana, Halasana, Tiger breathing (cat & cow), Janusirsasana, and the Therapy series (or Tibetan Rites). These should be practiced with deep breathing, holding postures for 3-5 breaths and up to 21 rounds for the Tibetan Rites.
  • Meditation: of all the remedies provided by Yoga Therapy, there is nothing more powerful than meditation to reduce stress. Stress is one of the critical factors that aggravate both diseases.
  • Expose the affected areas to direct sunlight every day
  • Try to bathe these areas in salty seawater as often as possible
  • Avoid day time sleeping
  • Avoid over-eating and over-exercising
