This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi,
The Answer is Yes. Here is part of an article on this from Kaiser -
a huge health care provider in the usa.

__________________________________________________


Patients with psoriasis are more than 50% more likely than patients without psoriasis to have at least 1 other autoimmune disease and are nearly twice as likely to have at least 2 other autoimmune diseases, Jashin J. Wu, MD, director of dermatology research and associate residency program director in the Department of Dermatology at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, California, and colleagues report in an article published online June 4 and in the November print issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.



Dr. Wu said, 'Clinicians should be aware of these increased risks, as the treatment for psoriasis may affect the autoimmune disease in a different way. Or if there is a patient with psoriasis and an autoimmune disease, then perhaps one treatment can be selected to treat both psoriasis and that autoimmune disease.'

_________________________________________________________

You need to have a complete check up with blood tests to determine
all that is going on with you.

Homeopathy treats your totality (everything is looked at to choose
the remedy) Psoriasis alone is an auto-immune disease that can
be a long treatment-but you need to have all facts about your health
and a timeline of what symptoms appeared first and then up to present day.

_________________Mayo clinic on causes___________________________
The cause of psoriasis isn't fully known, but it's thought to be related to an immune system problem with cells in your body. More specifically, one key cell is a type of white blood cell called a T lymphocyte or T cell. Normally, T cells travel throughout the body to detect and fight off foreign substances, such as viruses or bacteria. If you have psoriasis, however, the T cells attack healthy skin cells by mistake, as if to heal a wound or to fight an infection.

Overactive T cells trigger other immune responses. The effects include dilation of blood vessels in the skin around the plaques and an increase in other white blood cells that can enter the outer layer of skin. These changes result in an increased production of both healthy skin cells and more T cells and other white blood cells. This causes an ongoing cycle in which new skin cells move to the outermost layer of skin too quickly — in days rather than weeks. Dead skin and white blood cells can't slough off quickly enough and build up in thick, scaly patches on the skin's surface. This usually doesn't stop unless treatment interrupts the cycle.

Just what causes T cells to malfunction in people with psoriasis isn't entirely clear. Researchers have found genes that are linked to the development of psoriasis, but environmental factors also play a role.

Psoriasis triggers

Psoriasis typically starts or worsens because of a trigger that you may be able to identify and avoid. Factors that may trigger psoriasis include:

Infections, such as strep throat or skin infections
Injury to the skin, such as a cut or scrape, bug bite, or a severe sunburn
Stress
Cold weather
Smoking
Heavy alcohol consumption
Certain medications — including lithium, which is prescribed for bipolar disorder; high blood pressure medications such as beta blockers; antimalarial drugs; and iodides.

If your thyroid tests are normal then
there is probably no connection and
do not worry about it.

Everyone is different and the homeopath works with you based on your
symptoms. People can and will have different medicines bc people have
different symptoms and response times to medicines.

It is good for the homeopath to have a timeline of every health issue
from birth. Bc on some things- for example eczema- People start with
eczema as a child, then they take allopathic meds to suppress it.
If you suppress it then it has to come out somewhere and often then
the person stops having eczema, but then has allergies. They then suppress
the allergies with allopathic meds and the next thing that often shows up
is asthma.

Having a timeline listing all you have had, and what you took for it,
will help the homeopath see what came first and get a better idea of
what is going on with you or what started what. The homeopath still has
to treat you on what exactly is going on with you right NOW in present time
and if there is anything else going on, it will become obvious and then
he will treat that when the time is right.

Hi Nadeem,

See the below thread link.

http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/439496?

Some choices are:

1. Click Deoshlok' s name and find his website and phone number.
I advise calling him, and get a time he will call you back and discuss the
treatment. It does not seem to work well to email him or to fill out the form
and email him- you have to talk about it. Treatment is not free so you can
make arrangements .

2. You can make a new thread for treatment.

You can ask for RP Tamhankar in your headline and have him work with you on here.
He has done some good work on psoriasis. He will give you a form to fill out on your
thread.

3. You can go to someone in Pakistan- I can list a clinic and perhaps they could
suggest people in your area if you are not close.
