Ayurvedic Treatment for Skin Diseases

The skin is considered as the largest organ of the body. The skin consists of several layers that protect the body from germs and other environmental toxins. The skin can present many problems that may include a symptom of poor health like skin sores, spots, cracks, excess oil, dryness, flaking, itching, cracking grains and rashes.

The causes are varied which may include stress, caffeine overload, allergies, high levels of copper, poor digestion, constipation, poor circulation, lack of exercise, sun damage, irritating cosmetics, liver malfunction, pollution air, dehydration and drug or alcohol abuse.

According to Ayurveda, the skin has six layers, which is not only superficially but extends to the deepest levels of the body. A skin disease is, in most cases, deeply rooted in various dhatus or tissues such as fat, muscle, blood, etc.

Ayurveda always tries to eradicate the disease through specific treatment according to their cause. As the disease is deeply entrenched, it is difficult to solve the problem quickly. Skin products and Ayurvedic treatments can take a few weeks to eliminate the symptoms, but the diseases are treated permanently.

Cause of Skin Disease as per Ayurveda!

Two major causes of disease in Ayurveda are improper diet and lifestyle that a person follows consciously or unconsciously. Following a diet or lifestyle that is against the season or Prakriti (nature) of a person, creates an imbalance in the body’s energies, thus contaminating the tissues of the body to produce a skin disease.
