Homeopathy for SKIN and HAIR Problems

Our skin is the mirror to our internal health. A dull and dry skin reflects signs of internal deficiencies and dehydration. A healthy glowing skin reflects good internal well-being and harmony amongst our organs.

Similarly our hair also reflects our internal health. Dry rough brittle hair and hailfall shows mineral and protein deficiencies. Apart from beauty aspect of glowing skin and strong hair, this essence is very important in overall understanding of causes of various diseases. This means if the internal organs of our body are not functioning properly, may be due to any disease or deficiency of nutrients then our skin and hair are first ones to show signs of the internal problems.

In skin conditions, there can be dark patches or blemishes on nose and cheeks (pregnancy related in females or in general as sign of anaemia or stress or even sunburn ), dark lines on neck (hormonal disturbances), acne and acne scars, milia, whiteheads, blackheads, pompholyx, psoriasis, fungal infection, pityriasis versicolor, warts,corns, molluscum contagiosum, atopic dermatitis, boils, abscess, carbuncles, lichen planus, itching without eruptions, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, urticaria, etc.

How Homeopathy can help?

Whenever we suffer from any skin or hair problem it means our body is trying to tell something is wrong within us.  There may be disturbance in internal harmony which gets thrown out in body. To cure such cases we have to treat the skin disease or hair issues from the root cause.

The conventional system of medicine attempts to remove the visible signs of eruptions immediately, but after few days or months the rash or skin disease occours again. This is called suppression not cure.

Plus use of chemical ointments or creams and strong medications or steroids have many side-effects.   

Homeopathic medicines work holistically to cure the disease.
