Using these holistic applications helps to restore balance to different body systems. As with all holistic applications – it’s all about support rather than disrupting the natural processes. What follows is a natural alternative approach to skin health and wellness.
Acne – the objective is to encourage elimination (with the consumption of fruits and vegetables) which will aid in cleaning out the system. Herbal combinations such as mixtures of Burdock, Nettles, Yellow Dock root and Echinacea are helpful in combating surface bacteria that feed upon skin cells and accompanying discharging fluids.
Bruising – the idea is to strengthen blood-vessels which may be inherently fragile. Bruising and swelling can be reduced by gently blotting the area with Witch Hazel. Arnica disperses the products of blood-leakage.
Boils – the goal is to provide cleansing remedies that support the body’s removal of waste products.
Eczema – the objective is to eliminate any toxins which may irritate already sensitive skin. In addition, the idea is to reduce stress levels and to explore the existence of possible food allergies. For relief from itching and inflammation natural based creams and ointments will help to minimize dryness.
Eye Irritation – the goal is to soothe eyes with anti-infective eyewash to counteract allergies, itchy, watery eyes, smoke and chemical fumes with an eyewash remedy made from herbs Eyebright and Golden Seal.
Sunburn – the goal is to reduce amount of damage to the skin, prevent infection, and reduce dryness, discomfort and inflammation. Wheatgerm oil and pure vitamin E oil soothe and soften the skin.
Varicose Veins – the idea is to reduce excess fluid at the ankle by performing gentle massage – away from the foot in the direction of the trunk of the body. Moreover, Dandelion leaf can be used to stimulate kidney function. Witch Hazel and Marigold can be applied to the veins to reduce discomfort.
