Homeopathy relieves seasonal skin problems gently
Homeopathy acts upon the restorative energies of the body, enabling it to heal itself safely, effectively and without side-effects. It offers the best treatment plan for winter skin problems. Other medical systems merely aim at symptomatic relief, or target the problem-causing factors. Not homeopathy. Homeopathy aims to treat skin problems from the root —from the inside-out.
The skin is our largest organ. It forms an essential barrier between our inner organs and our environment. Put simply, it mirrors our health. All of us are unique. We all respond differently to our environment; so does our skin. Even if you are one of those lucky ones with a great, healthy skin, you just can’t relax. Your skin still needs protection from the environment.
Calcarea Sulphuricum is useful for dry, scaly, itchy, winter dandruff. Allergic or autoimmune skin disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis, which tend to get worse in winter, due to dryness of the skin, can be managed effectively with Arsenicum Album. A number of people develop cracked heels, chapped hands and dry, fissured lips in winter. Petroleum, along with petroleum jelly used externally, is most useful. Homeopathy also offers natural, effective remedies to treat acne, a common skin blemish — the key purpose is aimed at preventing new lesions, healing existing lesions, while minimising psychological embarrassment and scarring. Berberis Aquefolium is a handy acne remedy.
Homeopathy is, by far, the gentlest system of medicine. It should ideally be the first line of treatment for all disorders, including winter skin problems. It not only helps to relieve such seasonal problems, it can also prevent complications, naturally.
For over 200 years, homeopathy has successfully treated psoriasis, eczema and other surface flare-ups in winter, with no side-effects. According to a study published in The Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, a leading conventional medical publication, 82 per cent of patients suffering from psoriasis treated with homeopathy, over a period of two years, showed significant improvement in their quality of life and reduction in their overall skin symptoms. This is impressive, because many of them had unsuccessfully tried conventional treatment before and suffered from psoriasis for as long as 15 years.
