When most people scoff at the idea of homeopathic medicine, they don’t realize that the overwhelming majority of homeopathic treatments have been around far longer than their better known modern medicine counterparts. Homeopathic medicine can trace its roots back centuries to a simpler time when people understood the environment around them, understood what the natural world contained, what it could do and how to use it properly. There is a reason why the pharmacist logo is a mortar and pestle: those tools were actually used for hundreds of years to grind, crush and manufacture cures and treatments for diseases. Let’s take a look at a handful of modern and not so modern treatments for acne.
This first treatment takes a bit of preparation but many people swear by its effectiveness. Start by peeling the skin off of a pomegranate and placing it inside a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Once the skin is nicely roasted, place it inside a blender or food processor (or even a coffee grinder would work) and puree it as much as possible. Place the ground peel in a small bowl and add in a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lime juice. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes until a nice paste has been created. Use this substance as a mask and let dry anywhere on your skin where acne is often a problem. This mixture is an effective homeopathic acne treatment on several levels. The lime juice does the job of today’s benzoyl peroxide by shocking the pimples and cleaning them out and the pomegranate peel is full of anti-oxidants, vitamins and other nutrients your skin needs. Feel free to repeat this treatment 3-4 times per week as necessary. You may also want to eat the pomegranate as they are one of the best and most complete fruits in the world.
This next homeopathic acne treatment will not only help you control your pimple outbreaks, it will likely keep vampires away, as well! Much has been made in the last few years about the power of garlic on the human body. We are always told to eat more garlic every year and now there are even supplements that allow you to intake garlic every day without the tell tale breath. There are a number of creams and concoctions you can make at home that contain garlic that can be great for your skin, but many people simply take a freshly crushed garlic clove and apply it directly to their face. Of course, you are going to have to shower later and you may want to be alone when you try this homeopathic acne treatment, but fans swear it works wonders. Likely the best time to try out this treatment would be right before bed. Since the acids in garlic can be harsh on the skin, keep this nifty new treatment to only 2-3 times per week.
The world is full of incredible and healthy skin treatments, you simply have to discover the ones that work for you.
