How to Get Rid of Psoriasis at Home Naturally
Your skin seems to be developing a scaly texture and reddish silvery appearance in patches around your elbows and knees. You have tried rubbing moisturizer over it, but to no avail. A visit to the dermatologist may be necessary – the condition you are suffering from is most probably Psoriasis, a chronic skin condition wherein the skin cells multiply far more rapidly than normal,(8 days as against the normal cycle of 28 days) depositing a layer of cells just below the surface, and giving the skin a reddish inflamed appearance. Once it is confirmed that the condition is indeed Psoriasis, do not worry – you can bring about normalcy to the skin with Natural Therapy, using natural methods and substances which are quick and effective, and also less expensive.

A person suffering from Psoriasis generally has a number of raised patches of red and silvery scales all over the body, particularly on the knees and elbows, but these can occur on the back, thighs, scalp, fingernails, etc also. At times, there can be tiny sores as well. Itching and pain which accompanies the scaly skin, can cause much discomfort.
The exact reason why psoriasis occurs is still not known but researchers believe that since there is an abnormal increase in the white cells between layers of skin, it is somehow connected with an immune system disorder.
New skin cells are produced faster than the older ones are shed, resulting in a pile-up of skin cells below the surface of the skin, giving it the appearance so characteristic of psoriasis. The scales, when they fall off, leave behind bleeding points on the skin. Climatic conditions, skin injuries, certain medications like beta blocker and stress,abnormal protein metabolism, all have a part to play in the occurrence of psoriasis.
The severity of the symptoms generally forms the basis for the type of treatment to be taken. However, even a severe form is generally found to get relief from natural therapy, wherein instead of drugs, natural substances are used for bringing about a cure.
