Ayurvedic Perspective Of Skin Diseases And Liver Problems

Ayurveda places great emphasis on the study of a person’s skin for signs of good health. Ideally, a person who has all the three Doshas in good balance will have glowing skin. An imbalance of any one of the Doshas causes skin problems that are particular to that Dosha. The digestive and metabolic process is vital to a person’s good health according to Ayurveda. When this process is not efficient there is a toxic buildup of Ama or metabolic waste. This collects and causes inflammation in the body causing skin problems. The main organ that helps to detoxify the body is the liver. In this way, skin problems and liver issues are closely interlinked. Ayurveda aims to improve the metabolic and digestive process to prevent Ama (metabolic waste) formation. The detoxification and healing process of the body when enhanced purifies the blood and tissues thus healing health problems. 


Skin And Liver Issues - Overview  

There are thousands of skin problems both temporary and permanent. The skin can be affected by irritation, allergies, infection, or inflammation. Contact dermatitis is a skin problem caused by exposure of the skin surface to irritants. Hives or Urticaria is caused by an allergic skin reaction. Some skin issues are genetic while others are caused by fungus, bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis are usually managed as they are not curable. Inflammation of the digestive tract, kidney problems, diabetes, and thyroid issues also creates problems with the skin
