At our center we use complementary and naturopathic medicines to treat psoriasis.
Psoriasis is an over proliferation of the skin, ie. The deep layer of the skin grows at a faster rate causing thickened, flaky skin. The cause of psoriasis, like other skin conditions, is more than just skin deep. Psoriasis can respond dramatically to dietary changes and nutritional supplementation. These naturopathic treatments may permanently cure psoriasis and cause no side effects. Conventional treatments, however, such as ultraviolet light therapy and tar applications may increase your future risk of skin cancer and methotrexate and cyclosporin can weaken your immune system and put you at risk for infections.
