Homeopathic Remedies indicated for Psoriasis

Homeopathy is very beneficial for the cases where relapse is seen. For example acne, psoriasis, asthma, etc. It helps in effectively controlling the relapse and hence, the disease slowly and steadily decreases in its intensity. Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, noticed that fundamental cause of all natural diseases is miasms. The effects of these miasms were then passed from one generation to the next generation by inheritance and caused predispositions to certain disease syndromes.  Homeopath treats chronic diseases through misamatic approach.
