What are "Skin Problems" Really?
We often have posts here and there about skin rashes and other issues that are met with answers like "apply this steroidal cream", "immediately show a skin specialist" etc. What are skin problems? They are a method of the body tackling grave internal issues that could range from systemic problems to serious internal toxicity. The way we are shoving toxins into our body via drugs and vaccines, eating junk food, ignoring or are forced to ignore simple natural rules of living, subjecting ourselves to stress and strain simply ensure that more toxins build up within the system than it can eliminate via the kidney and liver as faeces, urine and sweat; the occasional diarrhoea, vomit and cold. These unexpelled toxins that the liver and kidney are afraid to tackle are expressed via the skin - the largest and strongest organ of protection and elimination. To view these excretions that appear on the skin in varied forms as an irritant to be suppressed is a grave error that subjects the body mind complex to serious chronic problems. Let us know and acknowledge this and advocate internal cleansing rather than external ointments. Only cold pressed home made coconut oil may be applied with caution to ease the irritation. Leave the rest to an experienced homeopath or ayurved. Homeopathy is often the best method to be adopted as the treatment leads to a total solution of the underlying issues and the body mind complex is relieved, cured and thereby escapes a miserable fate.
This is what a homeopath has to say on the issue. Kindly go through this excellent article.
Eczema - Skin Eruption Suppression
The skin is an organ that covers the entire body. It possesses millions of pores, which serve the functions of elimination and absorption. The skin can absorb any substance applied to it. For this reason, soaps, cosmetics, shampoos, creams, or household cleaners containing hazardous chemical substances should be avoided. Harmful chemicals absorbed through the skin can affect internal organs.
The skin is a great emunctory organ. When the liver is overtaxed with toxins and unable to keep up detoxification processes, the skin comes to its assistance.
The purging of toxins on the surface of the skin is an indication that the organism is desperately trying to get rid of accumulated waste products.
As long as the skin purges toxins, no toxin damage will occur. Toxins will begin to infiltrate the system only when it fails to externalize them.
Homeopathy Eczema Suppression Theory
When a skin is treated with a topical ointment and the eruption disappears, we believe the condition has been cured, but all we did was shove it back in.
When we suppress a cutaneous eruption we force the very organism (toxin) that the body is trying to eliminate back into the system. The skin is clear, but the internal toxins, having no external outlet, have full opportunity to concentrate on internal organs and tissues.
What the body does not excrete, it accumulates in the space between the blood vessels and the cells, known as inter cellular space.
Over time, if these toxins are not eliminated, they will begin to intoxicate the inter cellular structure of the organism and eventually permeate the cells.
This gives rise to accumulation of re-entered toxins and cause serious internal problems and diseases.
Side-Effect of Eczema Suppression
After a five year girl is treated topically for eczema, asthma develops. Why?
Skin disease is viewed as the body’s attempt to release internal toxins. When the organism is no longer able to eliminate toxins via the natural routes of elimination, it eliminates toxins through the skin. All external manifestations are an expression of the organism freeing itself from toxins. Skin disease is not simply a condition of the skin, but an underlying internal disorder expressing itself externally.
The skin eliminates internal impurities through the pores. When we treat eczema topically, we drive the very toxins that the body is trying to eliminate back in, allowing them to concentrate on internal organs and tissues. In the case of the five year old girl, toxins permeated her lungs. When her eczema disappeared, asthma developed.
Asthma is a classical case of suppression, where the disease is transported from one organ to another.The right homeopathic remedy brings out a disease that is suppressed in the system. When asthma is treated and eczema returns, healing follows.
It is important to note, that this reasoning not only applies to the suppression of a skin eruption, but of every external eruption, whatsoever.
Nature naturally excretes unwanted waste from within out to maintain homeostasis. This can be observed through normal body function such as urination, menstrual bleeding, ejaculation, tears, suppuration, nasal discharge, perspiration, and bowel movements.
Do not suppress the body's natural method of healing, doing so may lead to a serious internal disease.
