Effectively Treat Psoriasis Eczema with Naturopathic Medicine Shannon Sinsheimer ND
Psoriasis and eczema are both skin conditions.They present very similarly on the body. Psoriasis presents as large, scaly, white patches ofskin that itches, and when you scratch it, will produce pinpoint bleed marks. Eczemawill start out as smaller bumps that are vesicles that when you scratch, they ooze and, overtime, will create larger white plaques on the skin. Conventional medicine treatmentsfor eczema and psoriasis are most often topical creams, such as hyocortisone creams. Whenthese creams are applied to the skin, the plaque diminishessize over time. However,when you stop using the cream, the plaque can return. When a patient comes into my officefor eczema or psoriasis, I first begin with
a medical intake to find out how long they'vehad their symptoms and how severe they've been. I take a look at their skin, and thenI order a blood test to find out about any food sensitivities, their liver function,and total cholesterol levels. Diet plays a significant rolethe development of psoriasisor eczema, therefore, based on lab results. My first step is to eliminate foods the personis sensitive to, and instead, I recommend whole, organic foods that are nutrientdenseand are less likely to aggravate the skin. Stress or high stress levels are known toincrease inflammationthe body. Psoriasis and eczema are both inflammatory conditionsof the skin, therefore, unmanaged or highstress
levels will increase the problem of psoriasisor eczema. Stress management is necessary to help deal with psoriasis and eczema, thereforeI prescribe stress management techniques, such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and deepbreathing. I'll also prescribe a number of supplements. They include fish oil forits antiinflammatory properties and ability to support the skin; vitamin A for its skinhealingproperties; milk thistle for its ability to detoxify and support the liver; and vitaminD to support the immune system. Depending upon the symptoms, I may also prescribe atopical ointment, such as a homeopathic cream to decrease inflammation and increase healingtime, or a vitamin and mineral infused cream
with vitamin A and zinc to support the skin'shealing process, or a calendula ointment, which can decrease the appearance of plaquesand decrease the itchiness. Naturopathic medicine is about treating the root cause of disease,so when I treat the root cause of eczema or psoriasis, I see significant to complete reductionin my patient's symptoms. For example, I had a patient comewho had psoriatic plaquescovering nearly his entire back, the backs of his legs, and almost all of the backs ofhis arms. After three months, we saw a significant reductionthe size of the plaques, andafter six months, the only symptoms present were some light pink discoloration on theupper part of his back. Another example is
a young child I saw who had such bad eczemaon his feet and inbetween his toes, he was unable to wear shoes at two years old. Afterthree months of treatment, his symptoms had completely resolved, and he was wearing shoesagain. Another patient had scaly, itchy plaques covering the majority of her scalp, and withina few months of treatment, she had eliminated 95 percent of the plaques on her scalp. Naturopathicmedicine works. If you're experiencing symptoms of eczema or psoriasis and you want to reduceor eliminate those symptoms, I suggest you see a naturopathic to receive yourown individualized treatment plan.
