Psoriasis is a disease which has not been characterized as expected till today hence there are multiple classifications present based on the characteristics of lesions. Following are the types of Psoriasis –
Psoriasis Treatment in Ayurveda & Panchkarma is conducted using “Panchakarma” treatments, which include detoxification and bio cleansing the body with the removal of toxic material from the body fluids. Psoriasis is caused mostly by a vitiated pitta in the body. Because the liver is the seat of Pitta in Ayurveda and the body’s detoxification organ, the patient is advised to take some beneficial herbs for liver care and detoxification.
Based on the extent to which Psoriasis is vitiated and the chronicity, Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis can include a variety of external applications, internal drugs, or Panchakarma procedures such as internal oleation, Vaman Karma, Virechana Karma, Basti Karma, Nasya Karma, Leech therapy, Raktamokshan.
➢ External application: Application of herbal powders externally over the skin lesion for a faster wound healing.
➢ Fumigation: Fumigation of the active skin lesions with discharge or any secretion, with Ayurvedic herbs to disinfect the lesion for a speedy recovery, healing, analgesia, soaking the over secretions and thus reduces the inflammation and any further radiation or spread.
➢ Shaman Ghrita Pana: Consumption of medicated Ghee, considering the type of the Psoriatic lesions, for certain days to purify the blood, get rid of the toxins and cures the dried scaling of the lesion due to the unctuousness of Ghee.
➢ Vaman Karma: the removal of toxic metabolites from the body by virtue of therapeutically induced emesis with proper planning. It detoxifies blood and liver, reduces the excessive Pitta and Kapha Dosha thus cures the skin ailments.
➢ Virechan Karma: the removal of toxic metabolites from the body by virtue of therapeutically induced purgation with proper planning. Likewise Vaman Karma, it also detoxifies blood and liver, reduces the excessive Pitta and Kapha Dosha thus cures the skin ailments. Virechana Karma is the choice of treatment when there is more inflammation and swelling of the skin lesions.
➢ Both Vaman and virechana karma, called Shodhan karma, are measures of detoxification and bio purification, reducing the overly increased cholesterol, triglyceride sugars, uric acid and other metabolic substances.
➢ Basti Karma: The administration of medicated herbal decoction and oil through the anal route for the purpose to heal, cure, rejuvenate and prevent. Ayurvedic drugs given through the rectal route are more potent to decrease the symptoms of Psoriasis and with more potent action without the relapse of the disease.
➢ Raktamokshana and Leech Therapy: Since all the skin ailments are impure blood driven and also due to the increased circulatory impedance of the impure blood. Therefore a sudden bloodletting from the circulatory system will surge the body to make newer pure blood thus diluting the whole blood and conclusively make the lesion a more better. This can be done through various methods as per the need as, for local action- Leech therapy and for systemic action- Raktamokshan through Siravedha.
➢ Shirodhara: Shirodhara is an Ayurvedic therapeutic practice performed primarily to calm the mind and relaxes the brain to reduce anxiety, stress and overburdened emotions. In this procedure there is pouring of liquid over the forehead, scalp or body, depending on requirement, the liquid can be medicated with oil milk, water, buttermilk or decoction. Shirodhara must be performed in every patient of psoriasis to correct the psychological imbalance created by the stress and anxiety.
