    What is Psoriatic Arthritis?

    Psoriasis is a chronic disorder of the skin that is distinguished by skin cells being produced more than the body needs. The consequences of this are raised areas on the surface of the skin that is patchy and flaky. Even though the plaque of skin can show up on any part of the body, the abrasions usually appear on the skin over the scalp, knees and elbows. Psoriasis can bring about burning, itching, pain and emotional suffering. Additionally, 10 to 30% of individuals who acquire psoriasis develop “Psoriatic arthritis" which is a type of arthritis that produces joint inflammation. Most physicians usually prescribe nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) as treatment; however, homeopathic treatment can sometimes provide relief from the symptoms also.

    Psoriatic Arthritis Homeopathic Treatment

    Homeopathic treatment has received notoriety for treating psoriasis and other persistent skin problems. When homeopathic treatment is used, there are no steroids or sticky applications used. Homeopathic treatments work naturally by raising a person’s immunity and can be utilized for quite awhile if needed with no ill effects. These treatments are also known to cure psoriatic arthritis and are completely harmless. When a person starts the homeopathic treatment, the burning pain and itching lessen, outbreaks go away slowly and the individual feels a lot better all around.

    Homeopathic treatment remedies are created from material that is taken from animal kingdoms, mineral and vegetable. Each treatment is thinned down and shaken in a special way that produces a mixture that most likely includes none of the primary molecules but includes the electromagnetic imprint. Each treatment has its own individual profile that corresponds to each person’s profile.

    One psoriatic arthritis homeopathic treatment uses Sulfur and Rhus Tox at 200 potency each dose. The treatment states to take Sulfur 200 one dose before sun up at the very beginning of the day. Then the treatment states to take Rhus Tox 200 only one dosage after twelve hours of taking the Sulfur. Then you take that exact series for three days, then one dosage every three days for a month and then see how you feel. Of course, it is best to check with a Homeopathic Practitioner for a more personal homeopathic treatment.
