What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects about 125 million people around the world. It is caused by the accelerated process of skin cell renewal, where non-mature cells start building up on the skin surface resulting in itchy, red silvery scales.
The condition affects men and women equally, and can occur at any age. However, peak ages are usually between 15 and 35 years, and 50 to 60 years.
Psoriasis can run in families as well, with one in three people diagnosed with psoriasis having a relative with the condition as well.
While there is no cure for psoriasis, many treatments have been developed to improve the symptoms by calming the skin, reducing inflammation, and improving overall quality of life.
These include creams, lotions, ointments, and systemic medication to be injected or taken orally. The type of treatment you are given will depend on the severity of symptoms, the person’s age, and their response to other treatment options.
The most important aspect is to make the person feel comfortable, and for the skin to stay moisturized and healthy.
Sea moss: Nature’s Remedy for Psoriasis
Here’s why sea moss is being hailed as a possibly effective and completely natural treatment for psoriasis.
The various trace substances present in sea moss, such as phosphorous, selenium, manganese, pectin, beta-carotene, sulfur compounds, bromine, and various amino-acids like taurine can help replenish the skin of its lost nutrients.
Moreover, sea moss is a particularly rich source of iodine, which helps the skin eliminate toxins and retain moisture.
Sea moss also contains powerful antioxidants, which help defend against cell damage from toxins and other harmful substances in the body. This enables the skin to produce healthy cells.
Also, anti-oxidant power helps improve most of the uncomfortable symptoms of psoriasis, such as flaking, dry skin, irritation and itching.
Rich in sulfated polysaccharide compounds, which are often added in anti-psoriasis topicals and shampoos as well, sea moss exhibits significant anti-viral properties which keep skin infections at bay.
The natural anti-inflammatory polysaccharides present in sea moss help minimize redness and irritation causes by psoriasis, preventing trauma and damage to the skin during scratching.
The amino acids present in sea moss provide the skin with important nutrients to keep it healthy and firm. This is especially important in psoriasis, since amino acids help hydrate dry skin, reduce inflammation and irritation andincrease pH levels; all in all alleviating redness and soreness.
