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.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

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.

Age Spots Natural Remedies

Age spots or discoloration of the skin is caused by excess Melanin. These unappealing brown spots are found on the hands, face or other parts of the body. Melanin is increased from sun exposure, age and hormones. Age Spots are usually treated with bleaching agents that have to be repeated because the spots always come back.

From the natural perspective, age spots generally come from hormone therapy, i.e. estrogen birth control methods or a pregnancy related event. Age spots or skin discoloration also comes from liver and colon disorders. It is easily treated, but takes 6 – 12 months. Eliminate chemical birth control and other medications which tax or damage the liver. (Evaluate your medications, especially statin drugs.)

Brown or red spots are often signs of liver imbalance. Signs of liver symptoms include irritability and anger. To support the body’s healthy functions include exercise in your routine, eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, soda—These are liver robbing foods.

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.

Natural Remedies for Cold Sores

Cold sores are small blisters around the mouth or nose that come on in one to four weeks and can last several days. The blisters are filled with a clear or yellow liquid. They can feel sore, or sting. Generally they are caused form contact such as kissing. The virus can lie dormant for years and will then respond to stress, or sun exposure.

Modern medicine treats cold sores with anti-viral medications either over a short period or a long time for more chronic problems. They help give symptomatic relief, but may have side effects.

From the natural perspective, help the body deal with stresses and improve the immune system. When there is an outbreak, natural remedies, including Lysine cream or Lysine capsules can give quick relief. Calendula gel applied several times a day gives quick relief and prevents infection.

Dry Skin Natural Remedies

Skin can be dry, itching, scaling or parchment-like. Many people have chronic dry skin conditions. If it is acute dry skin is usually from a lack of water or fluid absorption.

There are various medical treatments for dry skin, but they are often based on steroid and other toxic crèmes.

From the natural perspective dry skin is connective tissue weakness connected with either toxic blood or what Chinese medicine considers a yin deficiency (cold on the outside but hot on the inside from general chronic weakness).

Diet – eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, sodas, and especially fast foods.

Nutrition for Dry Skin

Evening primrose oil is good for skin and female health, 500 to 1,000 mg a day.

Flax oil is skin and cardio protective at 4,000 mg a day, not as anti-inflammatory as fish oil.

Omega 3 fish oils are my favorite at 6,000 mg a day of whole salmon oil (from a health food store, not big stores), a must for cardiovascular health.

Aloe juice can help soothe the mucus membranes internally and reduce heat and dryness of tissues.

2 tablespoons a day of dried Gogi berries helps maintain kidney energy health which helps fight kidney yin deficiency (chronic weakness of the kidneys). Kidneys help maintain moisture balance in the body.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
