Skin conditions: homeopathic remedy for cold sores, ringworm, hives, heat rash, and general itchy skin.
Your skin is the largest human organ in your body!
Yes, that is right THE LARGEST ORGAN. Did you know that your skin was an organ? Well, I will give you a clue of what it does and its importance-this organ acts as a protective barrier between the inside and outside of your body- quite important right?
This protective barrier will defend your body from any external intrusion. Your skin is like your coat, it protects you.
So your skin is the safest place where your body can dump any toxicity to keep it away from the main organs. I bet you are wondering, is this really true?
That is correct. This is why conditions like eczema, psoriasis, cold sores, fungal infections-which would all drastically affect internal organs, are located in the most external organ of your body. Your body is clever and will try to minimize any damage to the main parts by sending it to less important organs.
Let's be honest here, if you have to choose between having liver damage or having a skin rash- which one will you choose. I bet the skin! Me too!
That is why in homeopathy we do not like to put anything chemical on the skin to suppress the problem, we like to treat it at the site, not drive it to any other place.
I know what you are thinking. This sounds new to you.
Well, let me give you an example that you will quickly recognise.
How many times have you heard from a friend- I suffer from asthma but when I was little I used to suffer from eczema and I used to always have to put cream on it. But then when I turned about 4-5 it disappeared!You heard it.
The eczema disappeared from the skin but now the lesion in turned inward on the lungs and the person is now diagnosed with asthma. Think about it.
One of my patients was a healthy Sulphur constitution, a writer(of course!) and he had a rash. After taking his case, he told me he has had some patches of mild psoriasis in his body for most of his life but had never put anything on it! He did not like taking medications or putting steroids on his skin.
This patient was very healthy and his rash disappeared pretty much straight away after a remedy. His body was able to keep the original disease on the skin without interfering with any other internal working.
This is a very different picture from a lot of children that I see with eczema and recurrent chest problems. And I think we all know where we are heading here :(
Some common skin condition tend to respond quite quickly to homeopathic remedies and others require a long treatment to improve. This is most true for chronic skin problems.
Let's see how to manage the most common skin conditions with homeopathy.
