Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis is a medical condition characterized by a combination of to auto immune disorders: psoriasis and arthritis. Pain, swelling, and inflammation are the symptoms of arthritis while shiny scales on the skin with itching and bleeding are characteristic of psoriasis. This condition is usually observed in the age from 30 to 50 and has a tendency to show periods of exacerbation and remissions. The presentation of psoriatic arthritis is influenced by genetics, environment and a tumor necrosis factor. The modern management of psoriatic arthritis is usually with the help of steroids and immunosuppressant medications; however, results are not so encouraging, and these medicines can prove to be very toxic to the body.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment for psoriatic arthritis deals with giving symptomatic treatment both for psoriasis as well as arthritis. In addition, medicines are given to correct the compromised immunity of the affected individual, so that the immune process can be helped to strengthen the body, rather than fight against it. Herbal medicines are given which boost the immune process so that both psoriasis as well as arthritis can be controlled at the earliest. In addition, medicines are also given to treat the toxins within the blood and flush these out through the kidneys and the gastrointestinal system. Herbal medicines are also used to reduce the inflammation in the body, both in the joints as well as in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This brings about a reduction in symptoms of both psoriasis as well as arthritis.

Local treatment can also be utilised along with oral medications. Herbal pastes and ointments as well as medicated oils are used for pain relief and inflammation in arthritis, and to heal the psoriatic lesions. Most patients affected with psoriatic arthritis need regular treatment for about four to six months in order to get complete relief from this condition. It is important to note that almost all patients affected with psoriatic arthritis can be cured completely from this condition, without any side-effects being observed even with the prolonged use of Ayurvedic herbal medicines.
