Psoriasis: treatment with herbs, herbal teas , decoctions, infusions
About 2% (think about this number!) Of the population of the entire planet know about psoriasis firsthand. Despite the fact that the symptoms of the disease appear on the skin, in the form of disgusting plaques, this disease damages not only the skin, but is associated with pathological changes throughout the body. Disturbance in the work of the nervous and lymphatic systems, hormonal changes and a general violation of the immune system – an incomplete list of what accompanies psoriasis. Treatment of psoriasis should be started immediately, upon detection of the first signs of the disease. Moreover, this must be done only under the guidance of an experienced specialist, only according to the course of therapy prescribed by him.
Traditional medicine offers its own methods of treating a disease such as psoriasis. Moreover, herbal treatment does not have such side effects as treatment with hormonal drugs used by traditional medicine. Many herbs contain beneficial substances that are similar in their effect on hormones, but differ somewhat in composition and have a more gentle effect.
Complex treatment of psoriasis necessarily includes stabilization of the patient’s nervous system. Mint and valerian will help in this, which perfectly cope with nervous excitement and irritability. The necessary wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties are possessed by oregano, nine-strength , nettle. Scarlet, horsetail, string, oregano, motherwort normalize metabolism. Those who have experienced firsthand what psoriasis is, choose herbal treatment because of the high effectiveness of remedies based on medicinal plants, as well as the absence of side effects in them.
