The Natural Way: Complexion remedies

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Eczema, seborrhea and psoriasis

are all conditions that

cause red eruptions often with

scale on the skin and scalp.

Eczema is found most anywhere on the body

while seborrhea looks similar but involves sebaceous

(oil) glands of the skin and psoriasis can

be found anywhere but is usually on elbows and

knees. All three are an inflammation of the skin

and this is called dermatitis. None of the three is

contagious.

The natural therapies of long ago (mummies

show evidence of this ailment) would include

cleansing through heat or steam and diet, mineral

baths, balms and herbal remedies. A hundred

years ago it would be similar.

One thing modernity has added is that there is

often an auto-immune response underlying that

if not addressed will keep the problems intact.

Psoriasis is often interlinked with rheumatoid

arthritis, an autoimmune ailment, for example.

Autoimmune means that our own immune

system that is designed to protect us is in part

causing the problem by attacking our own body.

Because of this, internal inflammation that can

cause heart attack and brain troubles such as

dementia is often elevated causing other sets of

troubles down the road. Fish oil and vitamin D

are good supplements to add.

Getting a C-reactive protein blood test done

will quickly tell you how much internal inflammation

you have. Even if you are in the “normal”

range it is best to have as little as you can

so adding natural Cox2 squelching supplements

such as turmeric, boswellin or a comprehensive

formula product is a good idea.

To deal with eczema, seborrhea and psoriasis

wash with mild soap, do an herbal liver cleanse

(not a colon cleanse), use maritime pine bark extract

(pycnogenol) daily to balance the immune

system, drink a cup of Essiac tea/day and use a

balm topically. Add B-12 to the balm and apply

directly on the lesions. Now is a very good time

to start on the maritime pine bark extract as it

reduces allergies across the board especially important

as spring pollen is not far away.
