Psoriasis: Bach and Biochemic Remedies

Updated on August 27, 2016

Talk to anyone who suffers from this condition and you’ll hear how they’ve tried everything, simply everything and there’s just no cure. Which is why it would be better to try to accept the fact that psoriasis is very hard, if not impossible, to cure but it can be managed. It is up to the person who suffers to decide to choose which option to go with to manage and control this condition.

First, let’s take a look at thecauses. The problem is, no one knows for sure. It’s all a question of whatcould be the cause, never what it is for sure. It could be stress, it could beshock, it could be an allergy. All these could provide the triggers to set offthis condition. Psoriasis is not infectious and it can be controlled – thoughit does require patience and perseverance.

What are the options when itcomes to treating psoriasis? Doctors usually prescribe a topical creamcontaining steroids and while this does control it for a while, it usuallyflares up again once the course is over. One line of treatment that has seengood results is treatment with UV light.

Natural ways to treat psoriasis are exposure to sunlight, drinking a lot of water everyday, doing away with processed foods, eating more fruits and vegetables and cutting out or cutting down on meats, alcohol and cigarettes. While spices are to be generally avoided, the spice Turmeric has been found to be very effective in minimizing the symptoms of psoriasis. Turmeric is available in capsule form if the powder is not available to be added to the food. The oil of avocado is gentle and soothing when applied to the skin, as is aloe vera gel and warm cabbage leaves are a soothing compress.

The Bach and Biochemic way

Both Bach as well as Biochemic remedies are not really cures – they act like tonics for the mind and the body to get the body back into a state of balance for good health. Why should two different lines of treatment be combined? One comes from flowers, the other is comprised of tissue or cell salts. Well, Bach remedies act on the mind and on feelings so the emotional and mental states of the person attain a degree of calm. Biochemic remedies tackle physical deficiencies and help the body get back into a state of balance on the physical plane. When both areas are dealt with, healing is usually better.

Let’s take a look at the Bachremedy that is right for this condition. The one to be used is:

Crab Apple

This flower remedy gently but effectively makes the person accept himself and makes him stop thinking of his condition as ‘dirty’. You can buy the Bach flower remedy Crab Apple in the liquid form at your local natural health store or you could order it online.The usual size is a 10 ml glass bottle with a dropper. Now take a litre of water and put 2 drops of the liquid in it. Remember to use a glass or a stainless steel container for the water, never plastic. Take a few sips from this liquid through the day (except at mealtimes) and stretch this litre of liquid over 4 days – so that’s 250 ml of this liquid a day. Do remember to drink plenty of plain water as well through the day and keep to a simple and nutritious diet.

Now for the Biochemic remedies -you need two of these. They are:

Calcarea Fluor 12x

Kali Sulph 6x

You need to start off by taking 2 tablets of Calcarea Fluor and 2 tablets of Kali Sulph, 5 minutes apart, thrice a day. That would be morning, afternoon and night. Do remember to make sure you don’t drink or eat anything for 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after taking the tablets. (If it is a liquid, use 1 drop in 50 ml of water and take 5 ml as one dose. Store in the refrigerator).

You’ll know in a few days if this line of treatment is working or not because your skin will start feeling and looking a lot better. If it does work on you, you’ll need to keep taking it fora long time. After two months, you can reduce the doses to just twice a day –morning and night, supplemented by the Crab Apple enriched water.

Some forms of psoriasis do not respond to any kind of treatment – however, these gentle remedies have no aftereffects and will not harm you in any way. Most people who suffer from this condition,though, will find relief with these remedies. Here’s hoping you are one of them.

      My father developed this in the late 1940s, when so little was known about this auto-immune disease. It was so bad that he couldn't go in a public pool or to the beach because others were afraid they'd "catch it."

      Glad I found this, my daughter has this on her hands and feet and yes, tanning beds or time in the sun helps but it just never goes away, I will send her this and let her see what else she may try, I imagine its a horror to live with, good hub!

      Thanks for the hub, Shalini. I have outbreaks from time-to-time of what I think is mild psoriasis. I will try to put some of your suggestions into practice.

      Excellent Shalini...

      Psoriasis is much easier to heal that people think. I would add Kali Phos as well (for nerves)... I regularly use biochemical salts in combination with other homeopathics...and they are really amazing.

      Thumbs up.

      My 2 Sense - it isn't eczema - the skin is more flaky.

      Thanks ctw

      Hi Shalini,

      I have seen some psoriasis patients treated with biochemic and Homeopathic medicines. These medicines have wonderful effect on this.

      However, treating with batch flower medicines is a new idea for me.

      Thanks for sharing. Thumbs up!

      Is psoriasis a dry skin condition? Is it anything like eczema or is it totally different? Thanks for any information you can give me.

      yenajeon - yes, it is for most people who suffer from it - sadly so!

      2patricias - yes, most definitely! Wish more people would understand this.

      ajcor - asthma and skin problems seem to be so related - I must go look up the Russian method - it sounds interesting.

      SimeyC - coaltar products have apparently been quite successful in dealing with this condition - I'm so glad to hear you have been able to manage yours.

      Very informative. I've had this for 30 years or more - there is one cream I've found that really works well and gets rid of most of the 'white scales' - its MG217 and can be found in most pharmacies - it's coal tar based I beleive but really works - it takes a few weeks to work, but after that it only takes a small amount to keep things clear!

      Thank you for this timely piece of advice Shalini - my step daughter has suffered from Psoriasis most of her life - she has found that by learning the russian butekyo method of breathing for overcoming asthma that this has helped with her skin problems... cheers

      An interesting Hub. There are many conditions that are not cured by keeping calm, but that are easier to manage if one is in a serene frame of mind.

      This seems to be happening much more in the US - there are so many things affecting us - including toxins in everything and certainly our diet.

      I always recommend trying something natural before taking a toxic drug which creates more problems.

      Thanks for such an informative hub!
