For centuries, Epsom salt has been regarded highly owing to its marvelous health benefits and especially in reducing soreness, eliminating toxins and relaxing the body muscles. The salt contains some great properties such as magnesium which works well in reducing inflammation while at the same time enhancing nerve functionality. Epson salt psoriasis treatment offers great relief to the patient by soothing the flare-ups when they occur.
Epsom salt is used in bathing and this helps to exfoliate the flaky and thick skin that is synonymous with psoriasis. The soak also helps in soothing the common symptoms such as itching and irritation thus allowing the patient to enjoy a stress free life. It should be used regularly to help in the cleansing of the skin pores while at the same time minimizing psoriasis outbreaks or recurrence.
To enjoy the effects of Epsom salt psoriasis treatment, you need to dissolve two cups of salt into your warm bathing water and soak therein for at least 15 minutes and then wipe your body with a clean towel. This can also be followed by applying your favorite moisturizing oil. The Epsom salt can be used along other remedies such as Dead Sea salts or oatmeals among others.

Is it worth investing time and money in Epsom Salts for treating your psoriasis?
It helps to reduce scaling and works well as a stress reliever but will not “cure” psoriasis just on its own. Use it in conjunction with some oils such as jojoba or coconut oil which should be applied directly after bathing to keep the skin moisturized and pain free. Consider changing to a healthier diet and lifestyle to fully control your psoriasis. Read more about how I control my psoriasis naturally in my free ebook.
