Abstract

Introduction: Psoriasis Vulgaris (PV) is a chronic inflammatory dermatological disorder that affects skin, nails, and joints and has various systemic associations. The current case report is the first of its type to highlight the observations on manifestations of Psoriasis Vulgaris in an adolescent girl with Naturopathic diet, treatment, and Yoga Intervention. Method: An eighteen-year-old female who was diagnosed with Psoriasis Vulgaris at 9 years of age was administered Nature cure and Yoga for 16 weeks as an individualized diet and treatment protocol in an inpatient Nature Cure and Yoga Hospital in South India. Improvement in Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) score and reduction in body mass index (BMI) were observed. Conclusion: The changes observed are found to be consistent over 1 year. This case report also demonstrates the beneficial effects of Naturopathic diet, treatment, and Yoga as an effective treatment modality in the management of Psoriasis Vulgaris for both physical and psychological levels.
