In a newly released video on YouTube, a Naturopathic Doctor - Dr. Shannon Sinsheimer, ND - shares how she successfully treats psoriasis and eczema with Naturopathic Medicine therapies.
Online PR News – 19-November-2010 – – Psoriasis and eczema are skin conditions that present very similarly on the body. Psoriasis presents as large, scaly, white patches of skin that itches, and when scratched, will produce pinpoint bleed marks. Eczema starts out as smaller bumps that are vesicles that when scratched will ooze and, over time, will create larger white plaques on the skin. Naturopathic Medicine treats the root cause of these skin issues so that the body can function properly again. Once functioning properly, the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema will mostly or completely disappear.
Dr. Sinsheimer eliminates the foods that a patient is sensitive to and replaces those foods with nutrient dense, whole, organic food because diet plays a major role in the development and progression of psoriasis or eczema.
Dr. Sinsheimer says, “Psoriasis and eczema are both inflammatory conditions of the skin, therefore, high-stress will increase the problem of psoriasis or eczema. Stress management is necessary to help deal with psoriasis and eczema, therefore I prescribe stress management techniques, such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and deep breathing.”
She also uses a variety of supplements and botanical remedies to help the body heal: fish oil for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to support the skin, vitamin A for its skin-healing properties, milk thistle for its ability to detoxify and support the liver, and vitamin D to support the immune system.
She says, “Naturopathic medicine is about treating the root cause of disease, so when I treat the root cause of eczema or psoriasis, I see significant to complete reduction of symptoms in my patients. For example, one of my patients had had scaly, itchy plaques covering the majority of her scalp, and within a few months of treatment, she had eliminated 95% of the plaques on her scalp. This type of success is really the beauty of Naturopathic Medicine.”
