Points - September 2005 - Ask the Doctor

Q: I am a 50 year old male who has suffered from psoriasis for about 16 years. The skin blemishes are bad enough but I also am one of the 1 in 10 afflicted with psoriasis that also has the arthritic component. The topical and injectable systemic medications I have been encouraged by my physicians to try are in my opinion unhealthy over the long term or risky. Also, I would like to work toward better physical health and mental well being in general.

A: Phototherapy and aggressive topicals seem to be helpful for some people. From our experience, people who take “biologics” to help their psoriasis often find other side effects that go with these western medications. Not to mention that the overuse of steroid cream may result in thinning of the skin.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help correct the body's process that causes psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis naturally without the side effects and suppression of the immune system. Acupuncture is already helping people with their arthritic conditions. Offering suggestions for lifestyle and diet changes are also an integral part of our effort to help people find relief from psoriasis. Everyone is unique in their response to our treatments.  We do hope that traditional Chinese medicine can help you.
