Eczema and Psoriasis

Red light therapy can be an effective natural treatment for eczema and psoriasis, reducing itchiness and inflammation, and helping by speeding up the healing process of the skin in general. In addition to the itchiness reduction and other health benefits demonstrated in recent studies, natural red light therapy is routinely found to be safe, natural and free of major side effects, a big improvement over prescription drugs and invasive procedures. Psoriasis and its itchy symptoms are often a lifelong challenge. Finding a treatment routine that works for you and your body is also challenging. Two initial studies on red light therapy’s healing effects on psoriasis show promising results.

Research Shows Promise for Red Light as a Psoriasis Treatment

A 2010 study treated patients with chronic psoriasis, which in most cases had proved resistant to conventional treatments. Researchers treated patients for a 4-5 week period, with follow-ups, and found significant improvements in psoriasis symptoms.

Red light therapy improved psoriasis symptoms:

  1. Psoriasis Cleared: Patients had a 60% to 100% clearance rate with recalcitrant psoriasis Reduced Inflammation: Red light therapy reduced the skin inflammation of psoriasis patients.
  2. Patient Satisfaction: Researchers concluded that “satisfaction was universally very high” among the psoriasis patients treated with red light.
  3. Another double-blind, randomised study assessed 20 patients with psoriasis. By monitoring two psoriatic plaques on each patient, one treated and one untreated, researchers were able to determine that red light therapy improved psoriasis by reducing redness, hardening, and scaling of the skin.
