Are homeopathic treatments effective for psoriasis?

No. With all due respect to the non-dermatologist who answered in the affirmative, there is no convincing scientific evidence that homeopathic treatments have any measurable effect on psoriasis, and no plausible theory that explains why they would. Sorry, but those are the facts.
Psoriasis Homeopathy. The answer, simply, is no.
Yes. Yes, they are -- but you need to be evaluated by a well-trained classical homeopath -- it's not just picking up something from the health food store. Here is a study reference: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/19192019.

Which has the best treatment options for psoriasis: ayurveda, alopathy, homeopathy?

Fumaric Acid. The most effective treatment that I have found for psoriasis is fumaric acid, available over the counter in many health food stores. Start with 500 mg per day, and increase the dose by an additional 500 mg per day each week. Maximum dose is 3500 mg per day. Somewhere between 500 and 3500, you should begin to see results. Maintain the effective dose. Not a cure, but excellent control. Read more...

Homeopathy. Classical (single remedy at a time) homeopathy is a very powerful way to work with a person. It is not generally used for hair greying alone, but for one's entire deep level state of health. It can also be very helpful in skin disorders such as psoriasis. If the case is taken thoroughly & a remedy accurately prescribed, much can happen that conventional medicine cannot explain. Read more...
