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.

Anger Management Natural Remedies

Anger is the state of mind that reflects an emotional sensitivity. It is caused from emotional sensitivity or weakness or damage to the liver. This can happen from foods and poor dietary habits, pollution and most commonly from almost all medications.

Common over the counter pain relievers are the most frequent offenders. Physical symptoms can also involve digestive problems, high blood pressure and can come from stress.

The medical field may treat anger issues with counseling and various medications such as anti-depressants and other drugs that may have a temporary effect but rarely treats the cause.

The natural perspective is that anger is an emotional imbalance that when properly helped by feeding the liver and heart, a person can find joy and balance in life.

For anger issues in woman due to hormonal imbalance.

Dietary concerns are spicy and sour foods feed anger as well as stimulants and dietary imbalances. Eliminate liver stressors such as tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, caffeine, and sodas.

Natural Remedies for Anxiety

Anxiety and nervousness are symptoms of your body responding to stress. The medical community has put the name of General Anxiety Disorder or GAD to this. Millions of Americans experience anxiety each day. It helps them deal with a tense situation in the office, or keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps one cope. But when anxiety and its anxiety natural remediessymptoms are in the forefront of your day, and all of life is affected, it is time to seek help.

Symptoms include the mind racing, worry, uneasiness, irritability, headaches, sweating, difficulty concentrating, heart palpitations, tightness of chest, shaking or internal trembling, need for frequent visits to the bathroom, insomnia or trouble getting to or staying asleep, nausea, exhaustion, or being on edge.

Causes come from a myriad of reasons: heredity, brain chemistry, or it could be a learned behavior due to some of life’s experiences. Some causes may come from the food we eat, the friends we hang out with, or the places we work. Using drugs or alcohol to calm or medicate are certain reasons for anxiety.

Modern medicine generally uses anti-depressants or Valium-like products to depress the nervous system. These drugs treat symptoms, not allowing the person to get to the cause of what is making them anxious, and have the ability to change. Side effects are numerous and anxiety and nervousnessinclude dependence, becoming hard for a person to stop. Also, many people feel emotionally and mentally numb when taking these medications which, again, doesn’t allow for working through the problem that is causing the anxiety.

From the natural perspective, anxiety is a combination of apprehension, nervousness, and restlessness which may be due to the causes above, or not being able to work through problems, or express individuality. Symptoms can be expressed psychologically or physically.

Natural healing begins by finding and treating the stresses in your life. While examining what is stressing you, nourishing your nervous system with natural supplements can go a long way to helping you calm down, have a clearer mind, and relieve the symptoms of anxiety.

Next, look to your diet, first eliminating fast foods, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and black tea. Adding a liquid calcium-magnesium twice a day may be helpful to calm down nerves and relax muscles.

Then, exercise. Exercise is perhaps the safest and most effective method of managing stress. According to studies, exercise thwarts depression and anxiety by enhancing the body’s ability to respond to stress. It seems to give the body the opportunity to practice dealing with stress, and forces the body’s physiological systems to communicate much more closely than usual: The cardiovascular system communicates with the renal system, which communicates with the muscular system. All of these are controlled by the nervous system. This workout of the body’s communication system may be the true value of exercise; the more sedentary we get, the less efficient our bodies in responding to stress.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

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. Calcium-channel blockers 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.

High Cholesterol Natural Remedies

Cholesterol is an important component derived from the liver to feed the cells of the body proper fats. When ratios are wrong, excesses build up on the arterial walls. Poor concentration, dizziness, and breathless in normal exertion are some of the symptoms.The common cause of high cholesterol is a diet high in animal fats, and little or no exercise. High stress levels also play a part.

Modern medicine uses drugs to combat the problem. In the book Natural Alternatives to Lipitor, Zocor, and other Statin Drugs by Jay S. Cohen, the author describes the drugs as “statins” which can damage the liver, create flu-like symptoms and dissolve muscle tissue. Many people have contacted their doctors and have quit their “statin” drugs and have significantly improved their state of well being and are no longer sore and achy, and have more energy.

One client was told by her doctor that she should feel poorly as a result of using statin drugs, and she should get used to feeling bad. Dr. Cohen recommends with diet and exercise, nutrition and a variety of herbal supplements.

Natural solution in helping high cholesterol is to realize cholesterol is controlled by the liver and is a part of liver health. The cells of our body need proper fats for connective tissue health also.

Dr. Dean Ornich says you can reverse high cholesterol with one half hour of therapeutic breathing and another of yoga! Exercising reduces cholesterol 40 to 50 points in as little as 3 to 4 weeks. He also says Americans with a normal diet have an average 220 cholesterol. Vegans average 150 and Chinese that eat a quarter pound of meat (average) a week are at 127. Also, six cloves of garlic or the capsule equivalent per day normalizes cholesterol levels.

Check with your doctor when using natural supplements. Most people get their cholesterol checked every 3 to 6 months to make sure natural treatments remain effective.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

As you work on reducing stress in your life, stay away from tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, almonds, and chocolate.

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.
