Psoriasis Herbal Treatment
Dose 20 drops three times per day.
100ml for $58
Psoriasis is a chronic recurring disease recognizable by silvery scaley patches of skin. Medically there is no known cause but it is thought to be connected to immune mechanisms. The condition often runs in families.
The actual process is an inflammaion of the tiny nerve endings which reach the skin and these nerves in turn, overstimulate the mechanism of skin cell replacement. This causes a thickening of the skin producing extra layers which are forced to slough prematurely.
All this is accompanied by itching and scaling and by the time it has settled in the scalp area it is virtually impossible to treat using external treatments alone.
My herbal treatments address the nervous system, the underlying immune system and the emotionality involved as well as assisting the damaged skin to recover.
My treatment program consists of internal and external treatments.
The internal mixture containing the herbs; Hypericum, Euphorbia, Vervain, Comfrey, Cleavers, Maritime Pine and Blue Flag along with the Bach Flower Remedies; Holly, Chicory, Crab Apple, Larch and Impatiens.
Externally the application of a small amount of Hypericum Oil is also useful and I mix in the same bach flowers into the oil as above. The oil may be added to a natural style of hair conditioner and applied like this or massaged into the skin lesions directly once per day.
It is necessary to keep up the internal and exernal program for quite a few months after all symptoms have dissapeared as we need to break the bodily habit of reacting quote so dramatically on the outside.
