NATUROPATHY TREATMENTS OF SKIN DISEASES

Skin problems are signs that the body is not eliminating toxins properly and the immune system is reacting to stress or contaminants. Hence the basic and most important treatment of skin diseases is the complete detoxification of the body. Along with detoxification various naturopathy treatments are given, which include mud therapy and hydro therapy, besides a proper mix of diet and fasting therapy. Drinking plenty of water, avoiding oily foods and reducing stress through restful sleep also helps in curing skin diseases to a great extent.

Skin is the largest organ of the body and the most vulnerable to heat, moisture, sun exposure, food or chemical allergies, environmental toxins, stress, and lack of sleep.

Acne - Acne is a skin disease, commonly referred to as pimples, blemishes, spots and zits, and generally occurs on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Acne is caused by over production of hormones during the teenage, and hence about 20% of all cases occur in adults.

Eczema, a form of dermatitis, is an allergic reaction to plant oils, latex, chemicals, nickel, chromates, and lactose. Environmental factors, like temperature, moisture, dryness, wool, fabric softeners, and soaps can cause flare-ups. Excessive scratching can cause the skin to become infected.
