Other Therapy for Psoriatic Arthritis
Conventional therapy for psoriasis has been tested with clinical trials. The FDA has approved conventional drugs for the treatment of psoriasis. Some look to alternative therapy, diet changes, supplements, or stress reducing techniques to help reduce symptoms. For the most part, alternative therapies have not been tested with clinical trials, and the FDA has not approved dietary supplements for treatment of psoriasis. However, the National Psoriasis Foundation does discuss some other therapies on their web site. Individuals should check with their doctors before starting any therapy.
