Meditation/Yoga

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera. Get a gel or cream that has 0.5% aloe vera, and apply topically. Studies suggest this – but not orally-taken aloe vera – is an effective treatment for psoriasis.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 Fatty Acids fight inflammation generally, but formal studies are sending mixed signals about their effectiveness treating psoriasis specifically. You can get these acids in fish oil supplements, or from fatty fish: salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines.

Sunlight

Sunlight. Just 5 to 10 minutes of exposure to sunlight helps heal psoriasis by zapping it with ultraviolet B rays. Of course, much more than that can be dangerous, so be careful.

Oregon Grape Leaves (actually an evergreen) are an effective ointment for psoriasis in cream form. Look for any cream to be made of 10% leaf.
