psoriasis is an auto immune disorder ,psoriasis is developed as immune response of body to any protien of self ,considering it as foriegn protien

in Ayurveda it all autoimmune disorders are kept under group Aamaj and ayurveda believe it is due to incorrect metabolism [mandagni vikar]

in Ayurveda psoriasis is described as ekkusth and there is very good treatment for psoriasis as copared to immunsuppressive treatment which do more harm than good

anti mitotic treatment is causing anemia and other hepatic malfunction ,thrombocytopenia[lowering in platelets count]

Ayurvedic treatment is devoid of the such sort of Adverse effects and also work as anti-oxidant therapy

welcome to health care magic forum,
Psoriasis is an auto immune disorder, and in Modern medicines there is no treatment for Psoriasis, as they will provide you only with steroids and local ointments which has which will only suppress your condition and has many side effects too.
If you are really looking for psoriasis cure than you have to switch on Homeopathy, which is safe and reliable and has no side effects.

the studies have found that education, stress reduction, and muscle relaxation training can be beneficial to many people with psoriasis. Adding these elements to a treatment plan can reduce disability, anxiety, and stress related to dealing with psoriasis.Treatments for psoriasis have potential side effects. People with moderate or severe psoriasis may need treatment for the rest of their lives. Many doctors will recommend that treatments be changed or rotated after a certain period of time to make treatment more effective and reduce side effects.

The light therapy Is called PUVA (psoralen (a light-sensitizing medication) combined with exposure to ultraviolet light A (UVA). This helps in some cases but is not 100% guarentee for cure. No 100% guarantee for psoriasis cure at all.

Be careful from Vasai's Ambalkars Psoriasis foundation called ARC. They are big time cheaters. My father was admitted there. First of all ARC is not at all Ayurvedic hospital. Its 99% Allopathic. Once you get admitted doctors at ARC inject heavy doses of steroids in your body, which limits psoriasis for time being. This is 8 day course. They dont give guarantee by when psoriasis will reoccur. some cases it re-occurs in 3months, 1year or 3 years...In my fathers case it reappeared in 1 year time. Once again my father was admitted there but this time the steroids didnt work.
1% is ayurvedic, because they give a medicine (which is nothing but simple stomach cleaner) after this 8 day course.

My suggestion is try identifing some good ayurvedic doctor, instead of going to Vasai'sARC. Minimum cost of this 8 day course is Rs. 7000 ,can go upto Rs.12000 +.

Hi,there is no cure for psoriasis, but a broad range of treatments is available to reduce the symptoms, clear up the skin, and send the disease into remission. The treatments range from creams rubbed into the skin, to lasers that aim ultraviolet rays at the skin, to the newest treatments injectable drugs made from living cells.

Psoriasis treatments aim to interrupt the cycle that causes an increased production of skin cells, thereby reducing inflammation and plaque formation.There is no permanent cure for this.

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
