Looking for a natural psoriasis treatment? Consider trying Manuka honey.
But if you suffer from psoriasis, that’s not exactly news to you.
Psoriasis is a disease of the skin that causes surface skin cells to build up rapidly in an abnormal manner. The result is thick patches of itchy, silvery scales and redness.
Psoriasis tends to be a chronic condition, but may alternate between periods of remission and worsening.
For some, psoriasis may be no more than an ongoing nuisance, but for others, it may be absolutely debilitating.
Are there any natural cures for psoriasis?
At this time, there are no known cures for psoriasis – natural or otherwise -- but there are some natural remedies for psoriasis that may offer relief from the symptoms.
A very promising natural treatment for psoriasis is Manuka honey.
Treatment with Manuka honey or topical creams or lotions containing Manuka honey has been found to be quite effective at providing relief for those who suffer from psoriasis.
Manuka honey provides a natural moisturizing effect that can help to promote the healing of the skin.
And Manuka honey’s antibiotic properties helps to kill the bacteria responsible for causing sores and inflammation.
One great advantage of using a natural remedy for psoriasis is that there are no known side effects. Unlike the steroids and cortisone creams often utilized in treating psoriasis, Manuka honey can be used indefinitely.
Of course, always consult your doctor before discontinuing a prescribed treatment.
Manuka honey can be applied directly on the areas exhibiting the symptoms of psoriasis.
Alternatively, though, you might want to purchase a cream or lotion that contains Manuka honey, just to avoid the stickiness of using plain honey.
