Bags Under Eyes Natural Remedies

Unsightly swelling of the area under the eyes; the appearance can come quickly with kidney problems or long-term with kidney, liver, and colon problems. Causes are kidney or liver weakness. Medicine sees the bags as a weakness in the connective tissue around the eyes. They use surgery to remove eye bags, but bags may return as the cause has not been addressed.

From the natural perspective we see eye bags as kidney or bladder weakness. The eye most affected represents the kidney most affected. There can also be liver or colon involvement when the eye bags are lower under the eyes. This may be a sign of poor nutritional health. Stay away from alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea, soda, and fast food. Chronic therapy can take 6 – 12 months to reduce.

Natural Kidney Stone Remedies

Kidney stones are hard mineral deposits which may get stuck or pass with pain from the kidneys or one of the ureters. Many people don’t know that they have kidney stones unless there is a specific problem or during a routine doctor’s exam. 90% of kidney stones pass spontaneously; 10% need surgery.

Symptoms of kidney stones include sudden intermittent pains that may cause radiating pains into kidney, pelvic, testes, legs or abdomen. There is over 50% reoccurrence statistically.

kidneyCommon causes of kidney stones include a diet rich in animal proteins, coffee, black tea, hard water or fast foods. Other less common or serious diseases contributing to kidney stones include sick parathyroid glands (they regulate calcium), infections, or even structural effects. We will mostly deal with the common stones.

Modern medicine uses pain killers, diuretics and even lithotripsy to blast kidney stones. Lithotripsy has problems with damage to tissues; surgery has its dangers too.

Prevention may include the following: Eating a vegetarian diet as well as drinking water or citrus juices at 2 quarts a day. Avoid tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black or green tea, as well as sodas. Statistically, vegetarians fare best.

Nutrition for help with Kidney Stones
Magnesium supplements should help relieve spasms and relax the ureters; use by increasing the dose up until getting diarrhea. Vitamin B-6 has been shown to be helpful at 100 milligrams to 200 milligrams per day. Cranberry extract can help keep kidney stones away.

High Blood Pressure Natural Remedies

Having high blood pressure increases your chance for heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, or kidney disease. Normal blood pressure is around 120/80 mmHg. Blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered high blood Taking blood pressurepressure or hypertension.

The kidneys are the first cause of high blood pressure, but are also the easiest to treat. Excess fluids can cause high blood press (kidney weakness). Metaphorically, kidney weakness equals fear. Other causes may come from stress, a diet rich in animal fats, and toxicity related to use of tobacco, alcohol, coffee and tea.

Modern medicine treats high blood pressure using diuretics that stress the kidneys and may damage them. Beta blockers lower the heart rate. ACE inhibitors are blood vessel constrictors. hypertension relax the blood vessels. All these treatments supply only symptomatic relief and include a life-time dependence on medications.

From a natural perspective, using the word pressure brings up a whole new category of feeling pressured to perform at work, pressured in relationships, or your own high expectations of yourself or others. For men, in general, high blood pressure is related to anger; for women, it is more about stress. For men and women, it could be either or both. Most people don’t know how to manage stress nor are they interested “how to.” And as a result, the drug companies have provided a “quick fix” which, truly, any of us can become dependent upon for a lifetime.

I believe most high blood pressure issues are from financial stress. The way we value ourselves and others has to do with heart health. In most cases of high blood pressure, the cause is a great mystery according to the modern health perspective.

Of course, a healthy diet and exercise is the natural way to start helping lower high blood pressure. Take time to address your stresses in life and find ways to minimize them.

Excessive Sweating Natural Remedies

Hand sweat, particularly of the palms is the most disturbing as it can affect one’s work, especially if they use their hands frequently. Severe armpit sweating can create smells, and spots as well as salt buildup on clothing. Foot sweat can also disturb work and can cause social problems as it can be very stinky.

Causes – mostly from stress and nervous disorders, but may be a result of metabolic, circulatory, hormonal, cancer, or obesity disorders.

Antiperspirants used for excessive sweating disturb the natural flow of sweat and get absorbed into the body. The most effective ones contain aluminum or other toxic chemicals that may eventually poison the body. These chemicals may also irritate the skin and cause rashes, hives, dermatitis, and more. Medications including anti-histamines or other drugs can cause pressure on the eyes (glaucoma) or dry up the bodily fluids in general. This can lead to dental cavities, dry mouth, etc.

More severe measures for excessive sweating include surgery. Just remember the body needs the sweat glands. We just need to help them function to the normal standard. Common sense suggestions include changing clothes frequently, reducing stress, and finding the underlying causes and treating them.

From the natural perspective, excessive sweating may include issues of stress or grief. They may also include poor regulation of the kidney energy as it influences the water of the body. The Chinese also see the lungs as the skin water regulators.

 

Herbs for Excessive Sweating

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

Use a combination of the following herbs in capsule or powder for maximum benefit, and adjust as your condition improves. Therapeutic dose is equal to one capsule of each herb 3 times a day or 1 liquid dropper full of an herbal tincture 3 times a day.

Eczema Natural Remedies

Eczema is a Greek word meaning “to boil out.” Too many amino acids are put out through the skin which breaks down the epidermis. Dry eczema has flakes and scales. Wet eczema has discharge coming through the damaged skin. Acute eczema comes on suddenly and lasts less than two weeks. Chronic eczema can come on suddenly or slowly and lasts longer than two weeks. Other types of eczema include: allergic eczema, contact eczema, coin-shaped eczema, and eczema in flexures (folds of the skin). See homeopathic remedies for these types of eczema and children’s eczema.

Most causes of eczema usually relate to liver or kidney health. Liver signs include anger and irritability symptoms. Physical problems are usually right-sided. Also look for brown or yellow coloration of the skin. Kidney signs include fears and forgetfulness. Physical signs are abnormal urinary habits or pains in the lower back area. Kidney eczema is usually round in character with a border and reddish inside. Other causes of eczema may be emotional stresses.

Modern medicine uses steroids to treat eczema which suppress the immune system. Avoid internal and external doctor-prescribed medications or over-the-counter medicines as they are toxic and only suppress the problem deeper into the body. Remember that 60% of everything that is put on the skin goes into the body and has to be detoxified.

Chronic eczema can come on suddenly but lasts longer than two weeks. The skin is thickened, with blisters, wrinkles and flaking. Itching is less intense than in acute eczema. Cause: develops out of acute stage. Important: prevent constipation, do fruit fasts, eat more raw foods.

Acute eczema happens suddenly and lasts less than 2 weeks and can be associated with contact dermatitis. Discontinue use of remedies when skin is better. Acute problems usually go away quickly with the right remedy. Use Florasone crème by Boericke & Tafel (Cardiospermum) externally. Acute eczema symptoms start with a red spot. Itching; it can follow from knots, blisters, pustules; discharge is clear and crusts appear; it can move to other areas. Acute eczema comes from allergic conditions and can come from contaminated blood stemming from foods, medications, bacteria, etc.

Eczema and Asthma
It is commonly known in the natural care circles that people with eczema often also have asthma. This is the result of steroid treatments for eczema. This suppressive measure can weaken the lungs with a resulting asthmatic condition.

People with this condition may see the asthma condition improved when the eczema flares up. It is the body’s response to throwing toxins to the surface. When the eczema is fairly calm, the asthma usually flares up. It feels like chasing your own tail. The steroids are administered as inhalers or topically for the eczema.

Look for the cell salt formula below to be used topically and in a water solution to be sipped all day. When the proper mineral balance of the body is met, the condition subsides, possibly going away completely. Dietary needs are a cleansing diet and elimination of dairy products.

From the natural perspective on eczema we ascertain the underlying organ or organs that are telling us that something is wrong; it’s like the warning light in our car. We can use a combination of nutrition, diet, and lifestyle and strengthen the right organ with cell salt herbs or homeopathics. Sometimes results can be seen in a few days, but usually results are seen in a few weeks to months.

Eczema and Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Supplements that support the skin include essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 fatty acids derived from fish oils. Adults need 6,000 mg to 10,000 mg a day for skin and cardiovascular health. Vegetarians may use Borage or Evening primrose oil at 3,000 mg a day. I feel it is essential to take one of these fatty acids.

It is important to use natural remedies for eczema topically to help soothe the skin as the internal organs heal. Use Florasone crème by Boericke & Tafel (Cardiospermum) externally. Use Psoriaflora by Boericke &Tafel (Berberis Aquifolium tincture) externally.

Natural Earache Remedies

Earaches come from infection or inflammation of the inner parts of the ear. They may also be caused by Eustachian tubes that are blocked or inflamed. They can be acute or become chronic over time. Often ear problems, as the Chinese describe, are linked to kidney problems. One can put a hot pack over the kidneys or use other remedies to strengthen the kidneys.

Symptoms are various types of pains felt on the inside or outside of the ear; heat, pressure, stabbing pains, etc.

Modern medicine treats earaches with antibiotics. While helping in some cases, this does not address the cause. To treat the cause, support the ear and kidney areas of the body and let it heal itself.

earache detectionEarache Detection

Press on the tragus (outer ear button). If sensitive, it may be a sign of inner ear inflammation.

Pull back ears and put pressure on the mastoid bone. If tender or sensitive, it may be an ear inflammation or infection.

Further, slide your finger down the bone behind the ear into the canal and push firmly down to the bottom of the neck. Any tenderness along this Eustachian tube (the equalization tube between the ears and the throat) may indicate a blockage and contribute to an earache or infection.

Natural solutions reduce inner ear and Eustachian tube congestion and assist the kidneys in reducing fluid pressure within the ears. Diet suggestion – avoid dairy products that may cause excess mucus in the body.

 

Herbs for Earache Pain

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

The following herbs help to prevent or treat the pain of earaches.

Use one of the following oils, warmed, for pain in the ear:

Mullein/Garlic compound – stops pain and soothes the mucus membranes

Garlic oil – natural anti-bacterial/anti-viral

Olive oil – soothes the mucus membranes of the ears

Herbs that support the ears (or kidneys[fluid problems]):

Dandelion leaf – influences kidneys, helps reduce fluid pressure on the ears.

Echinacea – Use this herb along with the previous herbs as it stimulates the immune system.

Parsley – influences kidneys, helps to reduce fluid pressure on the ears.
