Psoriasis and Acupuncture
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes flare-ups of patchy scales, pustules, or red spots to develop on a person’s skin. Western medical treatments include drugs that you rub on the affected areas, medications you take by mouth, injections, or light therapy — but these don’t always do the trick.
Psoriasis is tricky to treat and affects every individual differently; so many people may seek out acupuncture to help reduce the problem.
Traditional five element acupuncture is worth trying as psoriasis affects the whole body, and traditional five element acupuncture treats each person as a whole acting on the body, mind, and spirit.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, and acupuncture may be effective with such conditions.
Acupuncture is a safe alternative medicine treatment. The risk/reward balance is in your favor.
Acupuncture is not likely to interfere with any of your existing psoriasis treatments.
Traditional five element acupuncture can be used along with other treatments.
