cure-your-acne-now-with-homeopathic-medicine.jpg

 Eat simply clean fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds. Use mature fruits to make delicious juices, produce vegetable salads. Add nuts along with dried fruits in foods.

Drink water. Make sure to drink a minimum of 2 liters of mineral or distilled water with meals day-by-day. That will help improve your digestion because whilst skin is thirsty, dead skin cells stay on the derma and can block skin pores which in turn may lead to grotesque zits.

How would you avert acne ?

Use a fresh shaving blade to scale down the opportunity of dispersal the virus.
Wash the affected place twice a day with mild cleaning soap. Do not polish.
Prevent use of make-up or cosmetics in places susceptible to acne. When you’ve got to put on makeup, use only the hypoallergenic or perfume limitless kind.

Other tips of acne treatment:

-Maintain long hair off the face surface and shoulders and wash it day-by-day.

-Restrict shaving as often as possible; whilst shaving make sure to preclude nicking the zits.

-Don’t pop, cut, scrape, or squeeze your zits. This may cause infection.

-Shampoo the body hair normally.

Homeopathic Remedies for Chicken Pox

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

homeopathic-remedies-for-chicken-pox.jpg

Chicken pox is a common childhood viral illness. Many cases are mild; however, those that are uncomfortable can often be helped with homeopathy. Fatigue and low fever typically begin ten days to three weeks from the time of exposure. A flat red rash comes out, transforms into pimples, then develops into blisters that eventually break and harden into itchy crusts. If fever is very high and persistent, or if a person seems to be extremely ill, it is best to consult a physician.

Antimonium tartaricum: This remedy may be indicated when eruptions are large and slow to emerge. The child feels sweaty, fussy, and may be nauseous with a white-coated tongue. If chest congestion with a rattling cough develops, or a bubbly sound on breathing, Antimonium tart is likely to be the appropriate remedy.

Antimonium crudum: A child who needs this remedy usually is irritable and may object to being touched or looked at. The eruptions are sore, and touching them may bring on shooting pains.

Bryonia: When fever persists for several days during chicken pox, and a dry nagging cough develops, this remedy may be useful. The person’s mouth is dry, with thirst for long cold drinks. The person may be very grumpy, feel worse from motion, and dislike being interfered with in any way.

Mercurius solubilis: This remedy may be indicated if eruptions are large and become infected. The child is very sensitive to temperature changes and feels worse at night. Perspiration and drooling during sleep, swollen lymph nodes, and offensive breath are strong indications for Mercurius.

Sulphur: If itching is so severe that the person finds it impossible to keep from scratching—or if eruptions have a nagging, burning pain—this remedy may bring relief. The symptoms (and the person) become worse from warmth and aggravated after bathing. Both heat and chills are felt during fever. The person may feel drowsy in the afternoon and restless and hot at night.

Urtica urens: Eruptions with stinging, burning pain and itching may be relieved by this remedy. Symptoms are aggravated by exertion and from overheating.
