Diet in Psoriasis - Foods to be Avoided and Recommended

Psoriasis is a chronic, noncontagious inflammatory skin condition characterized by development of plaques of thickened, scaling skin and dry flakes of skin scales result from the excessively quick multiplication of skin cells. Psoriasis is just an irritating skin condition, which may further lead to psoriatic arthritis, an inflammation of the joints. Psoriasis is most frequently occurring on the elbows, legs, scalp, lower back, face, palms and soles of the feet. However, it can also occur in other areas as on fingernails, toenails, genitals and inside the mouth.

It is usually stimulated by environmental factors like infections and stress.


  • Red colored Plaques on skin, sometimes covered with a crust of scales that tend to be silver or white
  • Sensitive, itchy and painful skin lesions.
  • Dandruff on the scalp.
  • Cracked, discolored skin that easily bleeds and bruises.
  • Discoloration in the finger and toenails or growth of toenail fungus.
  • Nails that detach from the nail beds and can be painful or bloody.

Many people with psoriasis also suffer from emotional problems due to feeling embarrassed and hopeless about their skin.


As explained by Ayurveda, Psoriasis happens due to imbalance of two doshas - Vata and Kapha, which causes accumulation of toxins. These toxins get accumulated in deep tissues like rasa (nutrient plasma), rakta (blood), mansa (muscles), and lasika (lymphatic). These toxins leads to impurity in deeper tissues, leading to Psoriasis.


Diet has been considered to be the etiology and pathogenesis of psoriasis. So Psoriatic sufferers have been reported with success with changes in their diet. Have a diet low in fats and sweets. Eat unlimited amounts of alkaline diet, high in fruits and vegetables, lean meats or other proteins like beans and legumes and while on this diet go with regular exercise as being overweight can worse the psoriasis condition and keep your medication from working like it should.

Legumes such as beans and lentils as well as carrots are good source of antioxidants and fiber, so include them in your die for better results.

Strictly avoid too much of salty, sour or acidic foods and too much alcohol can exaggerate psoriasis, too. Avoid intake of spicy food and consume food that is easily digestible.

Here are foods that are to be consumed or avoided may help those with the skin disorder.


To Consume: Broccoli, Cucumbers, Ginger, Garlic, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Turnip, Chicory greens, Spinach, Kale, Beans, Lettuce, Cabbage, Brussels sprouts, Beets, Onions, Bell Peppers and Peas.
