HOMEOPATHY FOR ACNE ROSACEA AND OTHER SKIN COMPLAINTS
Acne rosacea affects the skin of the face and is considered to be incurable by conventional medicine. Enlargement of the blood vessels can cause reddening of the skin, pimples, eye irritation and sometimes an enlarged red nose. It may be mistaken for Acne vulgaris which is what we know as ‘teenage’ acne. Like all skin conditions it can cause discomfort and embarrassment.
The following is a testimonial from a client I treated for this condition:
‘During my 20's I developed small patches of eczema on my arms, legs, forehead. I always treated them with hydrocortisone to keep it at bay. That worked; it would come and go throughout the years until at the age of 38 I developed quite a serious case of rosacea on my face, in July 2014. The classic symptoms; redness started just under the nostrils and spread downwards until eventually I had a "ring" around my mouth/chin area. Spots and pustules developed but was never itchy, just unsightly! I got the diagnosis from my GP who prescribed antibiotics but with my sister having attended Cindy for homeopathic remedies, I decided to give this route a try. I was approaching this with a completely open mind. Cindy arranged a consultation and issued me with a set of homeopathic remedies on foot of that meeting. Within a week of taking the remedies, I saw a vast improvement in my condition. The redness was fading and the spots reducing. After approx 3 months of remedies, the rosacea was gone and I never did have to use that prescription!.’
What was interesting in this case was that as the rosacea cleared, the client had a slight recurrence of her eczema. In homeopathic terms this was a good sign as a real ‘cure’ often involves a return of an old symptom which has been suppressed but not healed. With a couple more treatments the eczema quickly went away without the need for any medicated creams. Her skin has been trouble free since.
Chronic skin complaints are very common, whether it is eczema, psoriasis, acne in teenagers or acne rosacea. While they can be treated conventionally, often they are difficult to cure. Homeopathy can be very effective in treating all of the above and often not only alleviates the symptoms but removes them altogether, by rebalancing the body’s energy system which underpins our physical health.
