Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects 2% of the population.

What is it about?

Psoriasis is a skin disease that accelerates the life cycle of skin cells causing its fast accumulation on the skin surface. The excess of skin cells form scales and red spots that may itch.

The main objective of the treatment is to stop the accelerated growth of skin cells.

The more frequent signs and symptoms are:

•  Red spots on the skin covered with thick and silvery scales
•  Small scaled spots
•  Dry and chapped skin that may bleed
•  Itching, burning
•  Thickened, pitted or grooved nails
•  Stiff and swollen joints

We carry out a medical study of all the body systems since it has been proven that when the general inflammatory levels decrease (especially intestinal and hepatic systems), symptomatology improves.

An integrative treatment should deal with the potential causes, lifestyle improvement, dermatologic therapy and a low-level light therapy.

The advantage of the low-level light therapy is its anti-inflammatory and regulatory action on the cell cycles without the side effects of the ultraviolet radiation.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that affects 2% of people. In addition to the daily topical treatments, the low intensity light therapy and the improvement of the immune system will be the keys to manage this disease.
