Psoriasis scalp treatment.

The power of the infrared sauna achieves amazing results in psoriasis scalp treatment.

If you are suffering from psoriasis, you know that it isn’t easy to treat. I know, because a friend of mine has it. His situation is stable most of the time, but stressy situations at work often cause an outbreak.

At times like these, he complains about itching, burning sensations that make him want to scratch all the time. He has it mainly in his hair, just above the back of his neck, which gives him a hard time using creams.

What causes psoriasis?

When your immune system is low, you are more vulnerable to this skin disease. That’s why infrared saunas have such an amazing effect. Infrared boosts your immune system.

How can infrared help ?

The infrared energy penetrates deep into your skin – up to 2 or 3 inches deep, heating up your body. This artificial fever has a positive effect on your immune system. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing response of your body. Your body naturally boosts the function of your immune system during a fever, slowing down virus and bacterial growth. This helps ward off invading organisms.

If you shiver at the thought of the more traditional psoriasis treatment approach with injections, infrared therapy may very well be the perfect fit for you. I offered my friend to try a few sessions in my infrared sauna, but so far he hasn’t tried it yet. I am so curious to find out how his skin will react. I will definitely update my website when he will have done a few sessions, so that you know what the outcome is.

Infrared sauna therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. It also provides a mild cleansing of the skin.

Just recently I also came across another very informative and elaborated website about psoriasis and natural treatment, where sauna is also mentioned as one of the possible treatments for psoriasis.

Other, more traditional treatments for psoriasis

Please note that the information I provide about these more traditional methods and psoriasis medicine is information that I found out during my research. I haven’t tried them because – so far – I do not suffer from psoriasis.

Also I think it would be wise to consult a doctor before attempting self medication.

  • Amevive (one treatment of 12 weekly injections) – this works slow, results are said to appear after 6 to 9 weeks.
  • Raptiva (self injectives, to be taken continually every week)
  • Enbrel (self injectives, to be taken continually, once or twice a week)
