| | Homeopathic help for psoriasis?
My boyfriend has severe, chronic psoriasis, over his entire body (except his face and genitals - luckily!). He has had it for 25 years now, and as far as I can tell has only ever treated it using some fairly vile and vicious creams and lotions prescribed by his GP. Once every few years he goes into hospital for a couple of weeks where he is covered in cream from head to foot, bandaged up and has loads of special baths (coal tar?). These treatments sort his skin out for a few months, but then it comes back.
He is mildly overweight, drinks but doesn't smoke and is eating far less meat and fish since starting going out with me 6 months ago!
I am wondering if anyone has any experience of any homeopathic remedies for psoriasis, or dietary changes that have helped.
It seems to me that the medical treatment is very reactive and simply treats the symptoms, but no attempt has ever been made to try to find out why he has this, or if anything specific triggers it.
I can't see him giving up the creams etc completely to try a totally homeopathic remedy, but if there is a complementary medicine he could try alongside the prescribed stuff I think he would give it a go.
Thanks in advance
