Psoriasis Herbal Remedies - Ayurvedic Treatment for Psoriasis

Psoriasis Herbal Remedies - Ayurvedic treatment for Psoriasis

What is Psoriasis as per Ayurveda -
According to Ayurveda Psoriasis develops because of imbalance of "fire" and "Earth + Water" elements i.e. it is a Pitta - Kapha disorder. Psoriasis therefore has to be treated using herbs which are having constituents and actions opposite to fire, earth and water energy.
According to Ayurveda, the diseases are caused by imbalance of Five elements ( represented by 3 main energies in our bodies i.e. Vata-Pitta and Kapha)
In Psoriasis the imbalance is in Pitta and Kapha energies leading to scaly plaques, itching, redness and painful joints in some cases.

What is Psoriasis ?
According to Modern Medicine- Psoriasis (sore-EYE-ah-sis) is a medical condition that occurs when skin cells grow too quickly and not shed quickly leading to their piling up. Faulty signals in the immune system cause new skin cells to form in days rather than weeks. The body does not shed these excess skin cells, so the cells pile up on the surface of the skin and lesions form.

There are five types of psoriasis: Plaque, guttate, pustular, inverse, and erythrodermic. About 80% of people living with psoriasis have plaque (plak) psoriasis, also called “psoriasis vulgaris.” Plaque psoriasis causes patches of thick, scaly skin that may be white, silvery, or red. Called plaques (plax), these patches can develop anywhere on the skin. The most common areas to find plaques are the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Psoriasis - Prescription which I usually give to Psoriasis patients in my clinic is -

Mixture of following

Praval panchamrit- 5 gm
Kalmegh Navayas Loh - 5 gm
Swarn Makshik Bhasma - 10 gm
Mukta Pishti - 2 gm
Kamdudha Ras - 5 gm
Yashad Bhasma - 5 gm
Akik Pishti - 5 gm
Jahar Mohra Pishti - 5 gm
Giloy Satv - 10 gm
Make 30 packs of equal dosages of all these mineral preparations, consume 1 dosage twice daily, with honey or with milk ( 10-20 ml)

2. 777 Oil - For Local Application - Apply 777 oil after bath on the lesions daily.
3. Psorolin Soap - Use this herbal soap for bath as it is natural herbal soap for helping in fighting psoriasis
4. Psorolin Ointment - This has to be applied on the psoriasis lesions everyday after bath. This can be used alternate days.

Blood Purifying herbs for Psoriasis -

5. Navkarshik Churna - 1 teaspoonful twice daily with warm water after meals
6. Mahamanjisthadi Kwath or Mahamanjisthadi Ghan Vati- 20 ml twice daily
7. Syp. Talekt ( himalaya) , Syp. Purodil ( Aimil), Syp. Amypure , Tablet Purim (Himalaya)
8. Cap. Neem (planet Ayurveda) - 2 capsules twice daily are recommended.

Neem has a very good role in Psoriasis. It is bitter in taste and that's why Neem Capsules in vegetarian capsule shell are recommended. Bitters are good in Psoriasis as bitter taste contains Air and Ether elements which are totally opposite to Earth, Water and Fire elements which are cause of Psoriasis and other skin ailments as per Ayurvedic physiology.
So Neem Capsules play a very important role in psoriasis.

  1. I am Subhash Tiwari from Chandigarh, India. I am 33 years old. I was suffering from Psoriasis from last 12 years. I went for allopathic treatment in PGI (which is the best institute of Allopathic medicine in northern India) for about 3 years. I was not at all satisfied from the treatment and the problem increased rather than decreasing. They gave me Coal-tar and some Germany made allopathic tablets.. but I did not feel any relief. I was into depression because I could not go to public places and I was young, as there were lesions on my hands and forehead also.
    So I quit the PGI treatment and then went to Yamunanagar (A nearby town) for Homeopathic treatment. I took homeopathic medicines for 2 years but still no results. I was totally frustrated now and I quit the homeopathic treatment also. Then I went to another homeopathic doctor in my home town –Chandigarh but still no relief.. I purchased a laptop and found Dr. Vikram Chauhan via internet and I was glad to know that he is also in Chandigarh. I visited him in the month of November 09 and started his treatment. I was very much skeptical whether this will work or not. He assured me that things will be good, but I started his treatment as last hope.
    Within 1 month, I realized there is a huge difference in my disease. The skin was getting smoother day by day. The scales were almost gone within 1 month of treatment. My lesions on hands and forehead were no more there within 1 month of treatment. I got more confident and was no more hesitant to go to public places. My life has totally changed and the depression went away and as I am writing this blog.

    I want to tell all allopathic doctors that they should study the role of Ayurvedic medicines in fighting psoriasis, which is a very stubborn disease. They should also read about benefits of Neem, Aloe vera and other such herbs.
    I also want to tell all the patients suffering from Psoriasis that they should follow Ayurvedic treatment for this problem. I feel within next 2-3 months I will get fully cured and I also thank Dr. Vikram Chauhan for doing my treatment.

    If someone from media reads my comment on Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis then I would like to request him that they should spread this news to masses. My phone no. is 0091-98728-38724 and I am willing to talk with patients, skin doctors, media people.

    Subhash Tiwari

    1. Thank you Mr. Subhash, Yes, Neem, Navkarshik Churna and other blood purifying herbs described in Ayurveda can help a lot in treatment of psoriasis in a natural way. Although psoriasis is a complicated disease but it can be cured and it is not what I am saying but it is as per ancient ayurvedic texts. Diet also plays an important role in Psoriasis treatment. Alkaline, fruit rich, vegetables rich diet is recommended rather than consuming non-veg, frozen, preservative rich food.

  2. Thanks For This Superb and informative detail.......

  3. Thank god as Mr. Subhash Tiwari was from Chandigarh, What if i am from Bangalore, do i get this treatment? who will give me the mixture of those churnas, herbs for months treatment in Bangalore. Only if Dr. Vikram Chauhan has an answer to this do i get treated. I have this disorder. I am willing to be on diet and under take the medicines. Doctor could you please mail me at

  4. I'm very thankful to Dr. Vilram for all recommendations on psoriasis treatment posted on his web and blog!

    In November 2012 I’ve started to search for alternative medicine after 5 years of unsuccessful allopathic treatment. After reading your posts and recommendations on remedies I’ve ordered them immediately with no doubt. After one and half months of changing diet and taking Neem and Kaishore Guggulu, applying Psorolin and 777 oil at night I have noticed the amazing results of clearing multiple red patches on my scalp and felt a relief from daily itching stress.

    Since that moment I believed in Ayurveda as the wonder-working healthy medicine with actual results demonstrated in just 6 weeks. Today I study Ayurveda and understand it more and more every day as a Science proven by centuries of collected knowledge, experience and success. Besides balanced diet, cooking with spices and herbal protocols Ayurveda involves marma chikitsa, yoga asanas, pranayama, mantra and meditation as powerful techniques and spiritual practices for healing both the body and the mind.

    If you read this comment it means you are looking for a prove of psoriasis treatment recommended by Dr.Vikram. I can assure it works. You just need to believe, start with a diet change and prescribed herbs, ointment and oil for clearing blood and calming the mind and be patient for 1.5-2 months until you see the results.

    With warm wishes,


  5. Thank you for the wonderful post. I am David from Australia. I recommended your good work to a friend of mine who was suffering from stubborn Psoriasis. He followed your diet pattern and it cleared off 40 % of the plaque. Later he ordered your combinations and found excellent results. Keep doing the good work you are doing. I recommend your name to many others !
