Pantry shelves filled with mason jars containing dry goods

Psoriasis requires treatment on a variety of levels. You may use a combination of emollients, oral or injectable biologic medications, and light therapy to help your symptoms.

But perhaps you’re looking to increase your options. Natural remedies may be one of these options. Some believe that they can assist in calming psoriasis flares and managing the condition.

They are not the same as prescription medications given to you by your healthcare professional. There is not a lot of scientific backing for natural remedies.

Natural remedies can interfere with other treatments so you should always consult a doctor.

Some things that you already have in your kitchen pantry could work for you in the short term.

“If you don’t see a sign of vitamins D on the label, you may want to look for one.”

Your immune system can be changed by the way your cells grow. The two features of the vitamins are thought to help with the skin disease.

Adding vitamins should start with your diet. Exposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation can make it hard to get the vitamins D and D3.

The American Academy of Dermatology points to fortified foods or supplements as healthy sources of vitamin D.

Your collection of vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds just became more important to managing your psoriasis. Some contain omega-3 fatty acids, thought to help psoriasis. The following pantry staples naturally contain omega-3s:

  • Vegetables and olive oil.
  • nuts and walnuts
  • Pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds.

Omega 3 fatty acids are getting a lot of attention for their ability to help with a variety of health conditions. This acid can help your immune system.

Finding a source of nutrition with Omega 3s is one way to combat the symptoms of Psoriasis.

One 2015 study concluded that taking omega-3 supplements complements topical treatments. It can also reduce scalp lesions and scaling, among other benefits.

The oils, nuts, and seeds in your pantry can provide you with an Omega 3 alpha-linolenic acid. eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids are two of the omega 3s found in fish and fish oil supplements.

Vinegars may also help your psoriasis. They were used in ancient cultures for many conditions, including inflammation as well as healing wounds, infections, ulcers, and other ailments.

Apple cider vinegar is a popular remedy. It is thought to help treat your scurvy. You should consult your doctor before applying it.

It may be possible to reduce the burning sensation by putting it in water. If you have cracked or open skin, use a different type of skin care product.

Oatmeal may help you soothe your skin when irritated by psoriasis. In particular, colloidal oatmeal is considered one of the best forms of oatmeal to use on your skin. “Colloidal” means the oatmeal is finely ground and boiled.

“It’s a good idea to look for skin products that contain oatmeal, since oatmeal may be a better option for soothing your skin.”

No scientific evidence supports the use of oatmeal in psoriasis. However, studies have shown that it can improve your skin barrier.

People say it reduces redness. This natural remedy is included in many bath soaks, creams, and other products.

You may have a container of honey in your pantry, just waiting to be used. You can combine it with olive oil and beeswax to create a topical treatment for your psoriasis.

An older study in Complementary Therapies in Medicine compared this natural topical mixture to corticosteroids. The study concluded that the honey-based ointment was useful in managing psoriasis.

Turmeric is an herb used for a variety of medical conditions, including inflammation, arthritis, and skin conditions. It’s a spice used in curry powder and is yellow in color.

A 2015 study in the Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Research examined turmeric and its effects on mild to moderate psoriasis. The study concluded that turmeric improved skin lesions with minimal side effects.

The study recommended using a treatment plan that included a patch of turmeric.

If you use a turmeric product, ask your doctor if it will help your scurvy.

Several foods in your pantry may help you with your sphygmomany, but other foods are contributing to inflammation. Inflammation can cause flare-ups of the Psoriasis.

Ultra-processed foods and refined sugars are not recommended. These items are often pantry staplers and may contribute to worsening or flaring sphygmomanies.

There is nothing wrong with looking for other treatments for scurvy. Before you try out a natural remedy, talk to your doctor.

Natural remedies can interfere with your current medication. It is best to follow the advice of your doctor.
