Preventing diseases from affecting your day-to-day lives

These days, skin disorders are very frequent. Some conditions are caused by a person's lifestyle, some by medication interactions, and some may be hereditary in nature. However, any one of these three might lead to psoriasis. Psoriasis is derived from the Greek word "Psora," which means "itch." Psoriasis is a prevalent skin condition. Each year, up to 125 million individuals globally, including over 10 million in India, are diagnosed with psoriasis. Psoriasis is most common in people between the ages of 15 and 35.

Psoriasis is a persistent, long-lasting skin condition. It is frequently referred to as an autoimmune disease. The autoimmune disease occurs when the body's immune system accidentally targets itself. It is recognized by skin areas that are frequently bumped, rough, red, and have a piled, scaly look. The scales can grow anywhere in the body but it's mostly found in the regions of the neck, scalp, face, hands, and feet.

It falls under the category of "Kushtha," a skin condition listed in Ayurvedic writings. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are the three doshas that are out of balance and cause it. When stabilized, doshas create the body. When disturbed, they bring about illness. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha can either cause disease on their own or in combination to produce disease.
