Glowing, healthy skin is often an indication that your general health is good, and if you have skin issues, it may be that your body is less than healthy and this is how it manifests.
Of course, skin problems can also be caused by all kinds of other factors too, and allergies, hormones, dehydration and nutrition can come in to the equation.
In allopathic medicine skin creams are generally prescribed to treat a skin condition, but in homeopathy the idea that the issue is more than just skin deep is considered. In order to address skin problems homeopathy addresses the whole issue in a holistic way and gets to the root of the problem, rather than just fixing the appearance of it.
Homeopathic remedies have been used successfully for skin problems for years and can treat everything from eczema to acne, to psoriasis and warts all while you sit back, relax and enjoy the Bingo Canada has to offer, or your favourite TV show.
Acne can be a painful and embarrassing condition, but homeopathic medicine can be used to great effect to control and eradicate it.
Calcarea carbonica, Antimonium tartaricum, Belladonna, Pulsatilla, Silicea, Sulphur and Hepar sulph are just some of the remedies that may be used in treatment, but it is important that you discuss treatment with a trained homeopath to determine the right option as acne comes in different types and has varying root causes.
Eczema can be a painful and irritating condition and it is often hard to get it under control. Arsenicum album, Graphites, Mezereum, Arum triphyllum and Rhus toxicodendron are some of the remedies that are proven to help and can treat different types of eczema too.
The treatment of eczema can take time and often a diet plan accompanies homeopathic treatment to try and determine the cause. A gentle approach is always the best for this condition as it can flare up quickly and the skin can become very sore and raw.
Oily Skin Remedies
Causticum, Dulcamara, Hamamelis, Antimonium crud, Antimonium tart., Arnica, ., Sepia, Sulfur, Staphysagria and Mercurius are just some options for anyone suffering with oily skin. Often oily skin and acne go hand in hand and treatment needs to be two-fold.
It may be that one causes the other, or vice versa, or that they leave you with more sensitive skin prone to blemishes, so the treatment of oily skin must be carefully considered to create the right balance. Dry skin is also an issue for many people, but is less likely to be linked to acne as the over production of oil is what blocks pores.
Focusing On Rebalancing
The aim of holistic medicine is to rebalance the body and to get your system to function at its healthiest.
If you only have a mild skin complaint you can try the gentler self-treatment homeopathic options and see if they work, but if you are suffering from a serious skin ailment a professional is your best be, as they will know exactly how to rebalance your system and get you back to equilibrium.
