Skin Tags Natural Remedies

Skin tags, also called acrochordon, are abnormal skin growths that usually occur on the neck or face, but may be found around the armpits, groin or even eyelids. They are considered benign (non cancerous) tumors. Women are found to have skin tags more often then men.

Causes can com from skin rubbing (medical perspective) or even PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). Some other research suggests insulin resistance (syndrome X). Other natural practitioners consider skin tags may come from allergy shots. Modern medicine treats skin tags by just removing them.

From a natural perspective, skin tags are a sign of something deeper so look for the root cause and help the body to fix itself. If it is insulin resistance issue, and there is a big belly, steps need to be taken to reduce stress and improve the diet (described later). Use chromium for better metabolism. PCOS is a hormonal issue that can create skin tags. See PCOS healing protocol. Allergy shots and other vaccinations in general are thought to alter our immune system and cause tumors, benign and cancerous. See also Allergy healing protocols.

Diet – no smoking, less than 2 alcoholic beverages a week, 1 cup or less of coffee or black tea a day. Use lest than 2 sodas a week. Eat no fast food – eat real food.

From a homeopathic perspective, skin tags manifest the sycotic miasm. Miasms are genetically inherited or grafted disease states. The sycotic miasm is a deeper health imbalance that causes alteration of tissues, usually benign. Skin tags are a sign of worsening state of health.

While physical removal of skin tags helps the appearance, it does not address the underlying cause. Use blood purifying or alterative herbs to help clean up the system. Natural remedies for skin tags should be used for 6 to 12 months.

 

Herbs for Skin Tags

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

Use an alterative formula (blood purifying) for 6 to 12 months. Use one capsule of each 3 times a day for optimal results.

Chaparral is a strong alterative (don’t use if you have liver problems). It has been used historically for cancer and is antiviral. Using 1 capsule 3 times a day.

Red clover is a general blood purifier and very safe.

Yellow dock is a mild laxative and system purifier.

Skin Rashes Natural Remedies

Skin rashes are raised skin bumps that may or may not appear red. They medical field claims it is caused by allergies to chemicals, but there are unknown causes.

If you see a doctor, a skin rash may be treated with steroids or steroidal creams that may be suppressive (pushing the problem into the body deeper) and toxic. The rashes will go away by themselves or will be suppressed into some other disease, especially of the lungs. It often turns to asthma. Sometimes it may go into the joints.

From the natural perspective, skin problems are usually a sign of kidney or liver weakness. Liver weakness can be detected when a person shows anger or irritability while kidney weakness shows up as fear or forgetfulness. Take care of the weak organs and the rash goes away. Liver signs can also bring on headaches behind the eyes.

What you can do naturally: make sure your diet is free of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, and black tea, as they damage the liver and kidneys. I rarely use creams except for B & T’s Florasone cream (homeopathic) for itching, to let the skin relax.

Natural Shingles Relief Remedies

Shingles comes from a viral disease in the chicken pox family, also called herpes zoster. It affects the nerves and follows nerve pathways commonly in the abdominal or face areas. Sores can be painful and may blister and pop. Later the nerve pains may persist.

It is proposed that shingles may be brought on by stress. Shingles are commonly found in older people, which suggests that there may be nutritional deficiencies.

Modern medicine treats it using anti-viral medications which may take up to several days for relief, and remember, all drugs have some kind of side effects.

From the natural perspective, we see it as nerve stress from immune weakness. It is usually easy to deal with using natural things. First, reduce your stress, and remember to stay away from tobacco, alcohol, coffee and soda pop.

Topically, you can use Dr. Christopher’s Cayenne Ointment. It may seem hot, but stops the pain. Lysine cream helps in getting rid of the virus and soothes the skin.

Sciatic Pain Natural Remedies

Sciatica comes from nerve pains radiating from an irritated or damaged sciatic nerve; this nerve feeds the legs. Sciatic pain can be throbbing, aching, or shooting. Sciatic pain can last for a few days typically. Many people have chronic sciatic problems.

The cause of sciatic pain is generally injury to the lumbar spine, however there may be a bulging disc aggravated by constipation, varicose veins, or exposure to cold wet conditions.

The medical perspective on sciatic pain tells patients to rest for 48 hours, avoiding physical exertion. Pain relievers and muscle relaxers for sciatic pain are often prescribed but bring many side effects. Surgery or steroids may be a last resort for sciatic pain.

Natural perspective on sciatic pain is, first, to prevent injuries such as bulging discs, with other contributing causes such as constipation. Natural treatment for sciatic pain can be very effective negating the use of medications. Complementary treatments for sciatic pain might include chiropractic adjustments or acupuncture.

Natural supplements for sciatic pain include Bromelain as a natural anti-inflammatory taken between meals. The best potency is 2500 GDUs ( gdu is a measure of potency). Also see the cell salts below as these natural supplements can be of great assistance. Herbal therapies are also a natural way to reduce inflammation and sciatic pain as well as promoting circulation.

RSV Natural Remedies

RSV is a viral infection. Symptoms include congestion, cough, shortness of breath, nose flares (key sign), wheezing, fever, croupy coughs. High fever and colored mucus discharges may be present. With RSV may be complications such as pneumonia, ear infections or even respiratory failure in infants. RSV is usually spread by cough or touching people or objects infected with the virus, and usually happens in the winter.

Medical treatment for RSV happens when symptoms are critical and the person or small child can’t breathe well. Then hospitalization may be necessary. They may use a ventilator and antiviral medications that may be life saving.

Natural perspective on RSV – it is a viral disease that affects those who have the susceptibility, and also those with a toxic accumulation of mucus from poor food selection or other health reasons. There can be prevention by wiser food habits. Natural remedies for RSV need to be used at an early stage but are useful at the critical stage if medical treatment cannot be found.

Diet helps prevent by eliminating dairy products especially in children. Adults need to eliminate alcohol, tobacco, fast foods, coffee, black tea.

Specific natural remedies for RSV in adults include NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine). It can be a helpful natural supplement for RSV at 2 capsules two times a day to reduce mucus.

Ringworm Natural Remedies

Ringworm starts with a reddish circle and proceeds to a dark ring on the skin. It is a fungal infection of the outer layers of the skin. Ringworm is not generally serious unless untreated over a period of time. The appearance of ringworm can be seen on any part of the skin including in beards, hair, scalp, etc. Causes of ringworm may come from public places such as swimming pools, gyms and more.

Medical treatment for ringworm is to kill the fungus externally with antifungal creams as well as toxic antifungal medications used internally.

Naturally, to rid the body of ringworm, we want to reduce the dampness in the body, increase the strength of the immune system and use compatible natural antifungal supplements and creams. Change your diet to improve immune function. Getting rid of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and sugars will help. Taking fish oil (at least 6000mg a day) will improve the immune system.

Herbs for Ringworm

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

Externally with ringworm, use the herb in tincture form directly on the skin. It works quite effectively but may darken or stain the skin temporarily.

Internally use anti-fungal herbs for ringworm to get to the root of the problem (dampness and fungus) and remove the cause which helps along with diet change.

 Garlic is useful for so many things including fungus, cholesterol, and high blood pressure and improves the immune function.

Neem can be used as oil externally and also works internally. It is also quite drying.

Thyme is also anti-fungal, antibacterial and helps the respiratory system.

Natural Remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis has pain and inflammation of the joints with morning stiffness, joint discoloration, and joint deformation. Causes include a diet rich in animal fats. It may also include an inherited factor. There also may be over toxicity and emotional causes. Western medicine uses cancer drugs, pain relievers and other suppressive drugs.

Deforming joints in Rheumatoid ArthritisPain is an indication of an energy blockage (the energy doesn’t move through and organ or system in the way nature intended it. Remove the blockage, and the pain will go away permanently. On the other hand, if joint damage is too far gone the body cannot repair itself. Through the natural remedies pain can be eliminated either through continued treatment, or may go away permanently even though the joint is damaged. With severe damage, pain may not be the only factor, but joint mobility will.

More stubborn cases can only be positively affected by finding a person’s homeopathic “constitutional” remedy, often determined by an experienced Homeopath. There are answers for those persistent enough to find them.

Good nutrition for rheumatoid arthritis includes glucosamine sulphate, 2 tablets 2 times a day to keep tissues and joints flexible. It takes 2 to 6 weeks to get good effects. This is helpful along with other remedies.

Natural Remedies for Receding Gums

Gums recede from teeth exposing them to decay and toothaches. Symptoms may include inflammation, infections or boils. There may be pain associated, or no pain at all. Symptoms may also include boils or cankers and bad breath. Medical treatment includes antibiotics (side effects) and surgery (symptoms may return).

Natural outlook is observing that the gums are related to diet, hygiene, mineral deficiencies and circulatory disorders. Using calcium citrate liquid (1 tablespoon, twice daily) may assist.
