Hello Sir,

Ancient wisdom of Ayurveda will definitely help you to free yourself from your ailments permanently.

Ayurveda has been curing almost all diseases since 5000 years just based on three doshas (humors) Vata, Pitta and Kapha. All these fancy disease names are only recent !

However, I would also like to tell you that skin diseases generally take a long time to cure - a bit longer that other conditions - and you will have to be under strict diet and also make necessary life style changes. Once that is done, the results are permanent. You may see a significant change just within the initial course of medicines

According to Ayurveda, skin diseases are caused when doshas (or toxins) get mixed with raktha, and hence a shodhana or purification will be necessary.

I would like to know if your body is generally dry or warm, do you sweat more or do not sweat at all.. how is your sleep, bowels, urine.. Do you take non-veg, have you found any relation of the disease with food, weather etc? Do you have itching?

I will be glad to help you out sir, but please do not worry. Worrying will aggravate skin diseases.

Take care,

Please contact me through my website
