When the skin itches and burns

“The itching is hard to bear.” “Last night I scratched myself sore.” “My skin looks terrible.”

This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their torturous skin disease when suffering from neurodermatitis.

Endogenous eczema or atopic dermatitis has a presentation that can be readily identified. The skin on the entire body is extremely dry. Redness as well as scaly skin can be found particularly behind the knees and in the crook of the arms. The skin can become crusty and often cracks. The greatest discomfort of neurodermatitis is the excruciating itching that causes those affected to suffer from sleeplessness.

Atopic eczema is a non-curable, genetic predisposition. It comes in cycles caused by or intensified by emotional distress or food intolerance. Often it is also caused by various allergies.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on neurodermatitis?

Neurodermatitis from an Ayurvedic point of view

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, neurodermatitis starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of neurodermatitis, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate mainly in the skin. Each neurodermatitis patient knows that stress and an unstable nervous system can serve as a trigger for the familiar symptoms.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s neurodermatitis complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What can Ayurveda do for you?

In Vedic medicine, neurodermatitis is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.

An integrated approach

Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of neurodermatitis, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of the nervous system can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can lessen neurodermatitis effectively.
