Need a natural psoriasis treatment? Check out our Kitchen Cabinet Cures, 4 remedies for psoriasis you can find in almost any kitchen.
Natural Psoriasis Treatment from the KitchenLet me be upfront and transparent, there are no actual cures for psoriasis. I just thought it was a catchy title for actual natural treatments for psoriasis, that actually work. Traditional treatments for psoriasis can be expensive and most come with some associated risk due to potential side effects of medication. This has driven many of us to look for a natural psoriasis treatment that works. In this article we will discuss home psoriasis remedies in your kitchen, and how you can use them to help bring relief.
Natural Psoriasis Treatments
in Your Kitchen Cabinet
1.) Apple Cider Vinegar
A proper mixture for psoriasis treatment is one cup of apple cider vinegar to one gallon of water. You can add this mixture straight to psoriasis plaques using a soft cloth or pour directly over affected areas. This can also be used for nail psoriasis by dipping infected nails in the mixture.
2.) Baking Soda
(Do not combine with above remedy unless you are going to the science fair.)
A proper mixture is 1 ½ cups baking soda to 3 gallons of water, mix thoroughly till baking soda dissolves. This is great and inexpensive way to alleviate itching. Dip a soft cloth in the mixture and apply it to any itchy skin.
3.) Cooking Oils – Olive Oil and Vegetable Oil
Olive oil is an underrated, under used moisturizer. It not only moisturizes the skin, but can help soothe damaged skin. It will also aid in removing extra flaky skin. Massage warm olive oil into the scalp as a natural scalp psoriasis treatment. You can apply olive oil full strength directly to your skin. The best time to do so is in the shower, or immediately after, before you dry off. You can also add olive oil or vegetable oil to your bath water and it will soak in as you relax. USE CAUTION: Fair Warning Oil and Water Together Are Slippery. We are not responsible for any falls, though we will accept humorous comments about such falls below.
4.) Plastic Wrap
(This can be combined with treatments above.)
Plastic wrap is an effective way to cover sores and help moisturizers absorb into the skin. It is the homeopathic version of occlusive tapes. Simply add your moisturizer or medication to the psoriasis lesions and wrap loosely with the plastic. Usually about an hour is long enough, you want to give the medication or moisturizer enough time to soak in, but do not want your skin to become soggy or wrinkled .
(Not exactly in your cabinet, but detoxing is an effective natural psoriasis treatment.)
A typical home detox should last for about 2-3 days, sometimes it will be more or less. You can do a juice fast, or a raw foods cleanse. There are also some great cleanses available at health food or vitamin stores, some are very gentle and others more aggressive.
During any detox drink plenty of pure water to keep the body hydrated. This simple treatment can help you get rid of psoriasis fast.
