Why Alternative Medicine is Best for the Management of Atopic Dermatitis?

Ayurveda Treatment for Atopic Dermatitis

According to Ayurveda, health is a state of balance or equilibrium between the three elemental energies or doshas, and atopic dermatitis reflects imbalances in the harmony of these doshas. For instance, if data is vitiated, it causes dryness, roughness, and increased itchiness. When Pitta dosha is imbalanced, it causes inflammation, redness, and increased sensitivity. If Kapha is vitiated, then it leads to oozing out and increased oiliness of the skin.

In Ayurveda, acute dermatitis can be correlated with Vicharchika. Atopic dermatitis is a skin-related issue and it is observed more amongst kids and has features of pruritus, inflammation, skin cracking, and oozing out. The younger kids are more likely to develop Vicharchika. Children who are suffering from Atopic Dermatitis are more likely to have allergic rhinitis or asthma, and this condition is regarded as Atopic March.

In Ayurvedic texts, Vicharchika is described under Kushtha roga or skin diseases, and in this case, the predominant dosha is Kapha. Ayurveda believes in a comprehensive attack on the disease in the form of herbal supplements, balanced diet and nutrition, and detoxification therapies. These procedures very effectively help to get rid of Atopic Dermatitis naturally.

Ayurveda lays vast emphasis on eating as per the unique body constitution. In the case of Atopic dermatitis, the diet that balances Vata and Pitta dosha, Like adding food items that are hydrating, reduce inflammation, and provide essential nutrients.
