About Psoriasis

Treatment with Traditional Chinese Medicine

Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes skin cells to multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. This makes the skin build up into bumpy red patches covered with white scales. They can grow anywhere, but most appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. Psoriasis can’t be passed from person to person. Alan Chen believes that Psoriasis is not strictly a skin condition because his experience tells him that the condition intensifies in the winter, and also in dry places.

Diet and lifestyle are also co-factors. Alan Chen believes Psoriasis patients have excess toxins in their system from weak elimination. Normally individuals are able to detox their bodies by bowel or kidney eliminations, but Psoriasis patients also need to have their lungs, another elimination organ, working correctly. TCM tells us that during winter our Yin and Yang are switched “from inside out,” so elimination via the skin (another elimination organ) will be more difficult. Which is why Psoriasis is worse in the wintertime.

Alan has two solutions for Psoriasis. The first is for internal balance via the detox system, and for this he recommends herbals to help the body cleanse in the normal way. Alan also offers a special cream for external use to help lessen itching, red scaling, and related symptoms. The degree and speed of the recovery is individual to each patient.
