A 26-year-old female came to our clinic with complaints of plaque psoriasis for the last 8 years. Her family had suffered from Psoriasis as well. She had a stressful job and couldn’t sleep through the night. She had Psoriasis on her scalp and she complained about scaling, burning along with itching aggravated in the winter season.
She was advised to take a Pitta pacifying diet after pulse examination. We recommended Panchkarma which is a bio purificatory measure to detoxify the body. After she got Shirodhara treatment, she got relief from itching and burning sensation as well as her stress level. We started the oral medications and medicated oil was prescribed for the local application for 6 months. After 2 months, she experienced significant improvement.
Now it has been 2 years and she has noticed only mild exacerbations. We didn’t see any signs of scalp psoriasis. Our client is still taking Ayurvedic medicine for managing stress levels and occasional sleep disturbances.
Incidentally, her mother who suffered from Psoriasis was treated with success as well.
