Psoriatic change of the outer skin represents the same phenomena occurring within the inner skin or membranes, especially the inner jejunum of the small intestine. Psoriasis is commonly associated with the asthma of a sibling. It’s an auto-immune condition due to its origin in ‘ama’, or undigested food particles, causing emotional suppression and chronic stagnation of the channel systems. Much improvement can be seen by shifting the diet and lifestyle of the parents’ environment by applying Ayurveda principles of food and lifestyle choices. Chronic skin disorders can in turn affect the bones, marrow, nervous and hormonal systems in due course. These are effects and not causes. To remove the causes, the guidance of an experienced Ayurvedist can help to resolve the catch-22 of symptoms and their original digestive reasons, which are influenced by culture and emotions.
