Homeopathy for psoriasis ---is it really curable with homeopathy? Can homeopathic remedies prevent its recurrence permanently? What are the benefits of homoeopathy for psoriasis? These are some of the doubts which people usually have while considering homeopathy for treatment of psoriasis.


Homeopathy considers that any illness is caused due to disharmony within your body and the symptoms are just an expression of this disturbance. Psoriasis is a caused due to dysfunction of immune response (result of an overreaction or over response). Homeopathy aims to cure psoriasis by correcting the imbalance of the immune response. The allopathic medicines suppress the immune system and really do not treat the cause of psoriasis.


Your homeopathic physician will take a detailed history and examine you before prescribing anything. Factors such as history of the disease, the family medical history, physical and mental characteristics of the patient, the likes and dislikes, medication details are considered before any remedy is prescribed. This approach is based on the principle that ----treat the patient, and not the disease.


Some of the homeopathic remedies which are prescribed for treatment of psoriasis include;

  • Arsenicum album
  • Calcarea carbonica
  • Graphites
  • Mercurius solubilis
  • Mezereum Petroleum
  • Rhus toxicodendron
  • Sepia Staphysagria
  • Sulphur

As with any other chronic skin disorder---complete cure of psoriasis requires time and patience. It is always advisable to treat psoriasis under the guidance of an experienced homeopathic practitioner.
