Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. There are different types of psoriasis, and plaque psoriasis is one of its types. It is characterized by dry, itchy, and raised patches covered with scales. It can develop anywhere on the body but is most commonly observed on the elbows, knees, back, and scalp. Fortunately, you can treat it naturally with homeopathy. Let’s have a look at how homeopathy at Life Force treated a patient with plaque psoriasis effectively.
A 53-year-old male patient (PIN: 47613) suffering from plaque psoriasis visited Kemp’s corner branch of Life Force. He was suffering from it for a long time. The patient had tried different treatments but nothing gave him satisfactory results. His friend was taking treatment from us for psoriasis and he experienced great results in 3 to 4 months of following our homeopathic medicines. So, he advised him to visit us for the treatment.
The patient had patches on his scalp, stomach, back, hands, and legs. He was experiencing a lot of itching and scaling noticed in the patches. Dryness and redness of the skin were also present. Hyper-pigmented marks were also seen on the skin.
The patient’s appetite was average. He loved eating spicy food. The patient had an addiction to alcohol and tobacco for more than 20 years. His thirst for water was average. He had no issues related to the urine and stool. His sleep was usually sound and refreshing.
Psychological and Family Make-Up:
The patient was unmarried and staying with his mother. He was working as a salesman in a shop. He was experiencing a lot of financial crises in his family. He was very anxious about his illness. He also mentioned that he wants to quit alcohol and tobacco but he is unable to do it. He was always sad and depressed.
Self and Family’s Medical History:
No other major illness was present in his medical history or his family’s medical history.
At Life Force:
After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed some research-based homeopathic medicines to the patient. He was also given a diet chart to follow and was advised to reduce alcohol and tobacco slowly as these things further negatively affect the immune system. To improve his health, he has to reduce and gradually stop his addiction.
On 9th May 2022, after 2 months, the patient reported being almost 30% to 40% better with the medicines. His itching and scaling were a lot reduced than before. The thickness of patches was reducing gradually. Dryness was still present. Hyper-pigmented marks were also observed on the skin. No new spots developed after he started with homeopathic treatment. The patient was overall better with the medicines.
On 20th June 2022, the patient updated that he was further better with the medicines. Itching and scaling were reduced than before. The thickness of lesions was less now. The dryness of the skin was present but the disease was completely in control. There was no increase or spread of the lesions. The patient was advised to apply moisturizer frequently on the skin, and Dr. Shah prescribed further medicines to him.
On 14th July 2022, the patient updated that he was almost 50% to 60% recovered from the skin condition with our homeopathic medicines. Itching and scaling were further reduced. The redness and dryness of the skin were present but less than before. The hyper-pigmented marks were getting lighter now. The disease was completely under control. He was finding overall improvement with the medicines.
On 9th September 2022, the patient reported that he was almost 70% to 80% better with the homeopathic medicines. The thick lesions had turned flat and the scales on them were no longer visible. The itching and scaling were completely better now. Hyperpigmented marks were present on the skin, but they were getting lighter day by day. The patient was very happy with the results.
The patient thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for treating him and improving his health. He is continuing the homeopathic treatment to complete the full course of treatment and experience complete recovery with good skin health.
This case illustrates that homeopathy can treat chronic plaque psoriasis effectively and safely without any side effects. It improves skin health and texture naturally.
