Epsom Salt Psoriasis Treatment - Smart Psoriasis Diet

Epsom Salt Psoriasis Treatment

For centuries, Epsom salt has been regarded highly owing to its marvellous health benefits and especially in reducing soreness, eliminating toxins and relaxing the body muscles. The salt contains some great properties such as magnesium which works well in reducing inflammation while at the same time enhancing nerve functionality. Epson salt psoriasis treatment offers great relief to the patient by soothing the skin flare-ups when they occur.

Epsom salt is used in bathing and this helps to exfoliate the flaky and thick skin that is synonymous with psoriasis. The soak also helps in soothing the common symptoms such as itching and irritation thus allowing the patient to enjoy a stress-free life. It should be used regularly to help in the cleansing of the skin pores while at the same time minimizing psoriasis outbreaks or recurrence.

It may also be used for people suffering from psoriatic arthritis as warm baths take the pressure off the joints and weight-bearing muscles, so in theory can help ease stiffness too.

To enjoy the effects of Epsom salt as a natural psoriasis treatment, you need to dissolve two cups of salt into your warm bathing water and soak therein for at least 15 minutes and then wipe your body with a clean towel. This can also be followed by applying your favorite moisturizing oil. The Epsom salt can be used along with other remedies such as Dead Sea salts or oatmeals among others. Soaking in baths is also good for your mental health as a stress relief tactic.

Epsom salts as a treatment for psoriasis testimonials and success stories

The following comment was posted by a pustular psoriasis patient who has had to endure the pain and discomfort for many years. However, the use of creams has not helped in any way and he had to start using other remedies including Epsom salt. According to his testimony, this has helped him live without blisters this far although using the product along with other products.

Negative comments about this psoriasis treatment

The following negative comment is one of a few that I have seen. Although it is not entirely negative, it brings out an undesirable picture from a patient who found it helpful at some point but later experienced some negative effects after some period of use.

The comment below does not really show the negative effects suffered by the patient but the only negative thoughts emanate from the fact that Epsom salt contains sulfur which she does not think is important.

I rate Epsom salt as beneficial for psoriasis as a management tool but I also see it as the poor man’s alternative to Dead Sea Salt Psoriasis Treatment! Therefore I give Epsom salts an effectiveness score of 6/10 for treating psoriasis naturally.


When using Epsom salt as one of your psoriasis skin treatments, the duration of effectiveness manifestation depends with individual cases. However, one can expect some immediate relief while the major changes will occur within a 4 weeks or so. It is important to combine the Epsom salt treatment with other remedies such as diet in order to make the process more effective.


It helps to reduce scaling and works well as a stress reliever but will not “cure” psoriasis just on its own. Use it in conjunction with some oils such as jojoba or coconut oil which should be applied directly after bathing to keep the skin moisturized and pain-free. Consider changing to a healthier diet and lifestyle to fully control your psoriasis, and of course if you are struggling with your psoriasis at the moment, always reach out to your doctor to keep on top of all the latest and innovative treatments.
