Why Consider Home Phototherapy?

We'd like to write about home phototherapy and why you should consider it. As you know, for Psoriasis there generally are biologics, all of which have varying side effects. There are steroid and other skin creams, many of which have side effects the stronger they are. There is the natural route, improving diet and stress which usually doesn't work. There has been no clear link between Psoriasis and food that is the same for everyone. There are some commonalities, but in general diet is not a huge factor. As for stress, it is widely known both trauma and stress can trigger Psoriasis. But, once a person has Psoriasis, it can be triggered more easily. Then there is phototherapy. Phototherapy is safe and effective for many Psoriasis sufferers. Phototherapy can be done at a treatment center or at home. Generally narrowband phototherapy is used more these days. At a treatment center, one can expect time in a light box to be seconds to many minutes. It may be daily, every other day, or a couple visits a week.

Often people choose home phototherapy units. Depending on the unit chosen, insurance may pay for most or all of the cost for the unit. A doctor can help track progress. It is a great deal.

The top phototherapy company is Daavlin, and you can find their products for sale here at this URL. Daavlin products are generally higher quality, have more attractive designs, offer increased functionality, and most importantly come with friendly customer service. In addition, tech support is free during warranty, and a Daavlin rep may even be able to stop by your home if you need technical help with your unit! Great deal.

Stress and Psoriasis

After years of dealing with Psoriasis, reading and studying all about the disease, I've come to a number of conclusions:

  1. Psoriasis can he helped by internal and external medications, but in almost all cases it does not go into permanent remission from medications.
  2. Food intake and diet can affect Psoriasis, but not as much as stress.
  3. Stress can make Psoriasts flare faster that anything I've seen.

Because stress can be such a fast trigger for Psoriasis, I've found the best way to control Psoriasis is first using the safest and most effective medical treatments. You can learn about treatments on this website. After that, I'm slightly careful what I eat. Most importantly, stress reduction is essential in my opinion to keep Psoriasis under control. These three books below are excellent and all a bit different. I would recommend clicking on each of the links below and previewing the books before choosing one or two, with Amazon.com's look inside feature.
