Athlete’s Foot Natural Remedies

A fungus of the feet, athlete’s foot affects adults primarily. The bacteria eat dead skin and can cause itching, burning and cracking of the skin between the toes. It is caused by having a warm damp environment where the feet are warm and sweat; not changing socks often enough or washing feet. Modern medicine treats it with chemical anti-fungal used topically and internally, although the underlying cause is not treated.

From the natural perspective, the Chinese describe it as a damp heat condition. Many have used natural topicals for relatively fast results while using internal products over several months to eliminate the causes.

Use a probiotic like Primadophalis Reuteri internally. Eliminate sugars that feed the condition. No alcohol, fruit juices (too concentrated) or refined sugars.

Fainting Natural Remedies

Fainting happens when a person experiences temporary loss of consciousness. They may turn pale, sweat, feel light-headed, fall, have leg weakness, or experience dizziness. Fainting can happen when blood rushes to the head from various causes. Sometimes with fainting there is a rapid heartbeat.

Causes of fainting include strong odors, emotional excitement or upset, mineral imbalances, hypoglycemia, anemia, dehydration, cardiovascular or neurological problems. Medications such as anti-depressants, tranquilizers, or high blood pressure medicines may also cause someone to feel faint. Modern medicine mostly uses electrolytes and changes in diet to help with fainting. No major drugs are used.

Naturally, look for the cause of fainting and treat the cause. If medications are not causing fainting, look to the nervous system or blood sugar problems (hypoglycemia). Natural supplements can help with fainting: Chromium and frequent protein shakes help keep blood sugar levels normal for those with hypoglycemia.

Baby Congestion Natural Remedies

Nasal congestion in babies interferes with sleeping and feeding, when nasal pathways are blocked. Congestion comes when a nursing mother may have a diet too rich in dairy products or there is too much stress from lack of sleep which affects the quality of mother’s milk. The baby may have allergies to the formula.

For baby congestion, most healthcare professionals recommend sucking out the mucus from the nose or using a decongestant if the child is old enough. From the natural perspective, we should look first at the mother’s diet, and help the mother and child to normalize mucus secretions to reduce congestion. Clearing the nose is helpful.

A humidifier with a few drops eucalyptus oil in the water may be helpful at night. It is good symptomatic relief.

Nursing mothers need to pay attention to their diet; also avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, coffee, and soda.

If baby is on formula, you may need to change it.

Teen Acne (Juvenile or Acne) Natural Remedies

Acne is a skin condition that affects mostly teens; it produces noticeable pimples on the face head and neck, and sometimes the back. Secondary are the social and emotional issues as teen-acneappearance is very important during this time of life.

The cause of juvenile acne is hormonal changes from puberty, mostly in teen girls and boys. This hormonal activity causes the sweat glands to produce oil which gets inflamed or may get infected by bacterial invasions, creating breakouts called acne. There may be clear-to-white or yellow pus.  Also allergy issues may cause teen acne; look for sensitivity to dust or sanitary issues on the skin.

Medical treatments for acne include antibiotics which always have side effects and cause other problems. Anti-bacterial creams are also for symptomatic relief and do not address the cause.

Natural methods include balancing the teen’s hormones and reducing foods that cause internal heat condition which is a sign of inflammation. It is best to eliminate fried foods and dairy products. Next is to clear the heat and inflammation by using herbs and cell salts. You may also use other remedies for allergies. See Allergies Natural Remedies.

Natural Remedies to help those Avoiding Eye Contact

The eyes are the windows to the soul. How we look at people and how we look at the world affects us mentally, physically and even spiritually. Children, as well as adults may have fear of closing their eyes or avoiding eye contact with others.

When children avoid eye contact it may also be a sign of some sort of autism or emotional problem. The medical field has few answers to this as most medications sedate the children, along with other side effects. Natural solutions help these children or people to relax and not be so shy.

Acid Reflux or GERD Natural Remedies

Your stomach acid helps digest your food. This stomach acid is very strong – the same acidity as battery acid. While the stomach can handle this, the more sensitive esophagus cannot. When the stomach sphincter is too weak, stomach acid regurgitates up into the esophagus, and causes a burning sensation called Heartburn. While occasional heartburn is common, more frequent, ongoing heartburn may be Acid Reflux, or GERD. Symptoms of acid reflux include burning chest pain, sour taste in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, belching, hoarseness, and sometimes breathing difficulties. Acid Reflux symptoms are worse from lying down or bending over.

Acid Reflux may be caused by a poor diet with too much citrus, certain spices, and fatty or irritating foods. Check with your doctor as some medications promote acid reflux. Smoking, alcohol, coffee, and other foods will make Acid Reflux symptoms worse.

Doctor’s treatment for acid reflux usually entails antacids and proton pump inhibitors that stop or slow down stomach acid, which may cause nutritional deficiencies and contribute to osteoporosis and immune dysfunction. They especially reduce B vitamins, iron and calcium.

The goal from a natural perspective to help Acid Reflux is to first relieve symptoms with natural remedies, and then correct the dietary imbalances. Start with a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and mild meats such as chicken, turkey and fish, then add cell salts, homeopathy, and herbs to correct the underlying causes of acid reflux. Additionally, it is important to address stressful conditions in a person’s life.

 

Herbs for Acid Reflux

DGL (De-glycerized licorice) – provides symptomatic relief

Natural Acne Rosacea Remedies

Facial skin redness, acne rosacea looks like acne in adults. Fairly common in those 40 – 50 years old, symptoms of acne rosacea include redness of nose, cheeks or both; there may be pimples on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. Acne rosacea also consists of long-term facial redness with the background of spider veins. The spider veins are usually on the cheeks.

Causes of acne rosacea, say the medical community, are allergic reactions or symptoms of stress. Medical treatments use antibiotics or topical gels that reduce symptoms which must be used almost indefinitely and may have severe side effects; they are also quite expensive.

From the natural viewpoint, acne rosacea is a reaction to stress, and may be a depletion of B-vitamins. Acne rosacea has been shown to include digestive disturbances involving one or more digestive organs such as the stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder and colon, etc.

I have seen natural solutions very successful, but it does take weeks to months to be free of this condition. Symptomatic relief can happen within a few days. Help your digestive system by avoiding spicy foods and alcohol. Also eliminate tobacco, black tea, and fast foods.

Specific Nutrition for Acne Rosacea

Supplemental B-100 capsules should be used for several months.

Topical Acne Skin Remedies

For any fungus or bacteria, dilute 1 drop Tea tree essential oil into 20 parts almond oil – use 2 times a day on the affected area.

Calendula crème is a natural antibacterial and has skin-healing properties; may also be used twice daily.

Herbs for Acne Rosacea

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use these herbs for acne rosacea singly or in combination:

Burdock root improves gastrointestinal function as well as helping the liver and cleansing the skin.

Yellow dock is useful to improve the digestive tract and is slightly laxative and improves iron absorption.

Oregon grape root improves the liver, gallbladder and skin function.


Cell Salts to Help Acne Rosacea

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

You can use this combination for several weeks to months as they work to repair the body internally. Kali mur 6x may be used alone with great success.

Natural Remedies for Anxiety

Anxiety and nervousness are symptoms of your body responding to stress. The medical community has put the name of General Anxiety Disorder or GAD to this. Millions of Americans experience anxiety each day. It helps them deal with a tense situation in the office, or keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps one cope. But whenanxiety and its anxiety natural remediessymptoms are in the forefront of your day, and all of life is affected, it is time to seek help.

Symptoms include the mind racing, worry, uneasiness, irritability, headaches, sweating, difficulty concentrating, heart palpitations, tightness of chest, shaking or internal trembling, need for frequent visits to the bathroom, insomnia or trouble getting to or staying asleep, nausea, exhaustion, or being on edge.

Causes come from a myriad of reasons: heredity, brain chemistry, or it could be a learned behavior due to some of life’s experiences. Some causes may come from the food we eat, the friends we hang out with, or the places we work. Using drugs or alcohol to calm or medicate are certain reasons for anxiety.

Modern medicine generally uses anti-depressants or Valium-like products to depress the nervous system. These drugs treat symptoms, not allowing the person to get to the cause of what is making them anxious, and have the ability to change. Side effects are numerous and ianxiety and nervousnessnclude dependence, becoming hard for a person to stop. Also, many people feel emotionally and mentally numb when taking these medications which, again, doesn’t allow for working through the problem that is causing the anxiety.

From the natural perspective, anxiety is a combination of apprehension, nervousness, and restlessness which may be due to the causes above, or not being able to work through problems, or express individuality. Symptoms can be expressed psychologically or physically.

Natural healing begins by finding and treating the stresses in your life. While examining what is stressing you, nourishing your nervous system with natural supplements can go a long way to helping you calm down, have a clearer mind, and relieve the symptoms of anxiety.

Next, look to your diet, first eliminating fast foods, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and black tea. Adding a liquid calcium-magnesium twice a day may be helpful to calm down nerves and relax muscles.

Then, exercise. Exercise is perhaps the safest and most effective method of managing stress. According to studies, exercise thwarts depression and anxiety by enhancing the body’s ability to respond to stress. It seems to give the body the opportunity to practice dealing with stress, and forces the body’s physiological systems to communicate much more closely than usual: The cardiovascular system communicates with the renal system, which communicates with the muscular system. All of these are controlled by the nervous system. This workout of the body’s communication system may be the true value of exercise; the more sedentary we get, the less efficient our bodies in responding to stress.

Natural Remedies for Canker Sores

Canker sores, also called stomatitis, are painful sores of the inside of the mouth, inside of lips, gums and even on the tongue. The pain can be raw, sharp, burning or a combination of them all. This can alter the taste, smell and breath. Canker sores are a sign of digestive disturbances. Causes are unknown from a medical viewpoint. Topical pain relievers are often used along with steroids. These may be toxic.

The first thing to do for canker sores is to use digestives (herbs, cell salts, or homeopathic remedies) which help digestion as well as calm the nervous system. An herbal “bitters” formula can often stimulate better digestion too so cankers will go away. Canker sores are not a single symptom, but specific for each individual. Use a combination of the following remedies for symptomatic relief then find the underlying individual’s weaknesses.

Helping digestion will help cankers disappear, but Lysine, an amino acid (a protein component), taken on a daily basis helps prevent and get rid of canker sores.Painful sores on the tongue have been shown to be relieved with 2,000 to 6,000mg of Lysine per day.

 

Herbs for Canker Sores

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a combination of a capsule of each Fenugreek, Chamomile, and Slippery elm before each meal will aid digestion.
