Our Nourished Life Naturopath Melanie Ruckley, regularly treats customers with Psoriasis so I thought it may be helpful to put together this guide as there are many different types of psoriasis, it’s important to treat your skin correctly. Of course this is a general guide only and it is always advisable to visit a GP or naturopath for personal diagnoses and treatment.
How should treatment for psoriasis be approached?
According to our Nourished Life Naturopath, it’s essential to have a broad based approach for this stubborn and uncomfortable inflammatory condition. The key aspects to consider are diet and stress. As itchy skin conditions are often associated with some anxiety, it is also important to make sure that is addressed, if applicable for the individual. The best results are often achieved by combining professional guidance, stress relief and supportive supplements for both internal use and topical application. It’s also essential to look at dietary triggers as psoriasis is an inflammatory disease.
