Treat Eczema and Psoriasis Naturally with Anti-Inflammatory Foods.
How do you treat Psoriasis and Eczema with Anti-inflammatory foods? With the change of seasons upon us, it may mean for some people certain skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can flare up.
The most common symptoms of psoriasis include:
- red patches of skin
- scaly, sometimes silvery, skin patches
- itchy skin
- joint swelling, stiffness, or pain, which are associated with a condition called psoriatic arthritis
While there are many ointments and prescription medications that can help ease symptoms of these conditions, you may want to also consider other natural alternatives. We know that many natural therapies can not only help reduce and even eliminate the symptoms but can also address the root cause. Whether it’s reducing and/or managing stress, reducing inflammation in the body or making dietary changes, these methods will go a long way in helping you bring your eczema or psoriasis flare-ups under control.
Focusing on incorporating anti-inflammatory foods in your daily diet is a great place to start. Our qualified holistic dieticians, nutritionists and naturopaths across our two clinics at Chermside and Cannon Hill are ready and willing to help you take control of your health and wellbeing.
