What did Indians use for psoriasis?


Traditional Indian medicine systems, such as Ayurveda, have several herbs and formulations that are used to treat psoriasis. Some of the commonly used herbs include neem (Azadirachta indica), turmeric (Curcuma longa), aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis), and guggul (Commiphora wightii). These herbs are believed to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, which can help relieve the symptoms of psoriasis.

Additionally, Ayurvedic treatments like Panchakarma therapy, which involves cleansing the body through techniques like massage and steam therapy, are also used to treat psoriasis. However, it is important to note that there is limited scientific evidence to support the efficacy of these traditional treatments, and people with psoriasis should always consult a healthcare professional before trying any new treatments.
