Healing skin conditions holistically is probably the best and only way for true resolution. Other ways may give the appearance of healing, but in reality, are just masking the symptoms.
True healing is indicated by stopping the treatment when the work is done and your health remains steady. Masking the symptoms is indicated by not being able to stop the treatment and/or an overall worsening of health, as the problem is driven in deeper.
Types of Skin Conditions
There are a multitude of skin conditions, some of which are itchy or painful, some of which are disfiguring, many of which don’t cause any problem. The common skin conditions include:
- cold sores
- skin tags
- fungal conditions such as ringworm and athlete’s foot
- liver spots
- pityriasis rosea
- seborrheic keratoses
- school sores/impetigo
- dryness, greasy
- and many more
Then there are the less common ones, which often have complex sounding names which tend to impress or disempower the sufferer. Such as chromhidrosis, necrobiosis lipoidica, epidermolytic ichthyosis, morgellons disease, erythropoietic protoporphyria, eruptive xanthomas, xeroderma pigmentosum, amyloidosis.
Whatever the medical label, what is far more important to appreciate for healing purposes is the cause of the problem.
Causes of Any Skin Condition
Healing skin conditions holistically involves an unusual approach. Typically it includes:
- finding out what the cause was, ie what happened before it developed
- what the treatment has been to date
- what the individual symptoms are
- what the common symptoms are for that condition
- the nature and personality of the patient
Causes and exacerbations of any health issue vary considerably. They can include worry, stress, pressure, anticipation, fright, bullying, a drug, a vaccine, an allergy, an inherited condition, a viral/bacterial/fungal condition, toxicity and more.
It is an individual expression of a disharmony or imbalance within the body.
The skin is the least important organ of the body, so is the first choice of the body to express this imbalance. This means any skin condition does suggest a healthy patient.
However, as each part of the body is connected to every other part, everything will be affected. In particular, the skin is strongly connected with the bowels. This means that anyone with a skin issue is likely to have a gut issue, too. And since the gut is considered to be the second brain as well as the eliminator of the unwanted food, it’s important to address the whole.
Suppression Of Skin Conditions
The medical approach to skin conditions tend to exist almost entirely of antibiotics and steroids in varying strengths. Neither of these approaches deals with the cause of the problem and both have serious side effects which can worsen the problem.
Antibiotics adversely affect the gut microbiome, which is so important to general health. Steroids weaken the organs, shortening your life span.
So what else can you do?
Healing skin conditions holistically needs a whole body approach. Your part in this can be improving your diet. After all, we all know the phrase “garbage in, garbage out”. And this is so true in health. A great place to start with ideas and recipes is T Colin Campbell’s nutrition site.
The next approach is to get good homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy considers the whole of you, taking into consideration your personality, your unique symptoms and the way you express this imbalance.
The result can be complete resolution of the skin conditions. With the added benefit of improved general health.
Whether the problem is driving you mad or is just plain unsightly, help is available.
