7 Natural Treatments for Psoriasis and Eczema
Updated: Sep 24, 2020
We are ecstatic to provide this list of natural treatments for psoriasis and eczema. Unfortunately, many conventional treatments involve painful creams and harmful antibiotics that are meant to be used indefinitely. For those who may have missed it, you can read our full article comparing the conventional approach to treating psoriasis and eczema with an integrative approach along with the top 5 potential root causes of psoriasis and eczema. You can read that full article here.
Each of the natural treatments listed below is impactful because they help heal or address at least one of the underlying causes listed in our previous article. Read on to learn more about each of these and how they can lead to life-changing improvements in your psoriasis and/or eczema.
7 Natural Treatments for Psoriasis and Eczema
A nano bath utilizes technology that pumps millions of tiny oxygen bubbles into purified bathwater. Typical nanobath treatments last 30 minutes during which time your body is able to absorb high amounts of oxygen. A nanobath is a particularly beneficial natural treatment for psoriasis and eczema because the high levels of oxygen can dramatically reduce inflammation throughout the body and on the skin directly. Nanobaths also help soften skin, speed wound recovery, support faster cellular turnover in the skin, increase blood circulation, and decrease pain.
Infrared saunas are a powerful natural treatment for psoriasis and eczema in several ways. First, they increase blood circulation and reduce inflammation. Second, they help speed wound recovery, increase collagen production, and reduce cortisol levels. Lastly, infrared saunas help purge toxic chemicals and substances from the body, which in turn, helps reduce systemic inflammation and boosts the immune system.
F-Scan + Firefly
At Center for New Medicine, we offer the F-Scan and accompanying Firefly treatment. This full-body scan is a quick and non-invasive scan that simply requires the individual holds a metal probe in one hand. The device will then scan the body within a few minutes and provide a detailed list of any fungal, parasitic, bacterial, and even viral infections the individual may have.
Unfortunately, almost every patient we see has some underlying infection. This is most often the result of a poor diet/toxic overload that inhibits the growth of good bacteria which then allows bad bacteria, parasites, fungi, etc to grow with little to no resistance. One the F-Scan is complete, the individual will receive a Firefly treatment.
This is a non-invasive, quick, and pain-free treatment that utilizes a powerful LED light and specific frequencies to kill the offending pathogens in the body. Patients usually receive three Firefly treatments and then repeat the F-Scan to confirm the pathogens were eliminated.
Underlying infections are one of the 5 potential root causes of psoriasis and eczema. These infections can wreak havoc on the gut and create chronic, systemic inflammation. Clearing up these infections is one of the most impactful treatments someone with psoriasis or eczema can do.
Similar to a nanobath, but more potent, ozone therapy utilizes ozone gas to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, speed wound healing, kill pathogens in the body, boost the immune system, and much more. There are a variety of different types of ozone therapy. Read more about it in our full article on ozone therapy here.
LED Red Light Bed
Red and infrared light are wonderful treatments for inflammation. Light at these specific wavelengths is able to reduce inflammation throughout the entire body, increase blood flow, reduce pain, increase wound healing, increase collagen production, heal scarring, soothe sensitive skin, etc.
Without a doubt, this is a natural treatment for psoriasis and eczema that you definitely want to be doing. As you work to heal your gut, reduce systemic inflammation, and boost the immune system, red light therapy can significantly reduce pain and discomfort caused by psoriasis or eczema.
Allergy Testing/Anti-Inflammatory Diet
Consuming an inflammatory diet or regularly consuming foods you are sensitive/allergic to is a major contributor to chronic inflammation. We always recommend patients with psoriasis or eczema complete allergy testing (and most people have some sensitivities/allergies as our gut health is so poor).
Along with removing foods you are actively allergic or sensitive to, we recommend removing inflammatory foods like highly processed food, products that contain synthetic chemicals, flavors and dyes, excessive sugar, excessive alcohol, and non-organic foods. As with most of the root causes of psoriasis and eczema, regularly eating foods like these creates inflammation, begins to deteriorate the gut, and puts a massive strain on the immune system.
Removing these triggers allows the digestive tract to begin to heal and lightens the load on the immune system, allowing it to focus on the truly important issues within the body.
Full Body Detox/Purification
Along with removing inflammatory foods and avoiding foods you may be allergic or sensitive to, consider completing a 21-day or 30-day detox program. At Center for New Medicine, we have designed specific detoxification programs that eliminate all inflammatory foods for 21 or 30 days. They also include specific supplements that support the elimination of toxins, help reduce inflammation, and help heal the gut.
A detoxification program is a great option to implement at the start of your psoriasis/eczema treatment to help catalyze the healing process.
