The Skin

The Skin Skin is the body's largest organ and is responsible for numerous essential bodily functions, including breathing oxygen, eliminating carbon dioxide and other forms of waste, acting as a shield against toxins from the outside, and helping to maintain body temperature.  The skin is continually repairing and renewing itself.  It responds almost instantly to sudden changes in emotions, and who would have guessed that it is the body's main organ of sexual attraction.  The surface layer of the skin, which is composed of cells, sweat pores, and sebaceous glands, is covered with a thin sheath of dead cells, which are continually being pushed up to the surface from below.  If the dead cells are not removed, they can reduce and even block the skin's effort to breathe and eliminate waste.  At the surface lies a slightly acidic coating of oil, called the acid mantle, which can protect the skin against some bacteria.  Below the surface is a complex of sweat and oil glan


Chakras   Energy from the spiritual, mental, and etheric planes which we use for healing, enters the physical plane through energy centers called chakras. The energy from the higher planes directly affects our emotions and our physical health.  We all have seven chakras (chakra means the wheel).  They appear within us as wheel-like openings on the surface of our etheric body.  They appear like long, thin funnels with a larger opening on the surface (kinda like an old hearing device).   Chakras are like terminals in which energy (prana) is transferred from the higher planes to the physical body.  Chakras can become blocked on the higher planes thus affecting the energy system which creates physical disease.  When chakras become blocked, it is necessary to open and balance them to maintain good health.  If the person does not have a medical condition, bringing the chakras into balance will promote rapid healing and recovery.    The First Chakra   Also, call the "R


Dandruff Symptoms Symptoms of dandruff are flaking and scaling of the scalp, often accompanied by itching.  Occasionally, a rash or broken skin will appear. What is Dandruff? Western Medicine Dandruff is the flaking and shedding of dead skin from the scalp.  Dandruff may be accompanied by an itchy, scaly rash, and seborrheic dermatitis, which can occur on the face, chest, and back, as well.  The primary treatment is the use of anti-dandruff shampoo.  Physicians also prescribe anti-fungal cream or lotion, if the shampoo does not work.  Traditional Medicine Dandruff is the body's way of eliminating excess proteins and fats that are accumulating in the system and cannot be assimilated.  These proteins and fats prevent the healthful circulation of oils and water in the scalp.   Dandruff is also a symptom of liver and kidney imbalances, organs that detoxify the body and eliminate waste from the blood.  Highly acidic foods, such as spices and tomatoes, also play a role


Forgiveness Carrying a grudge is a heavy weight that is exhausting for everyone.  The word forgive comes from the Greek language.  It means "to let go"  and that is exactly what "forgiveness" is.  It's working through and resolving your thoughts and feelings about an incident or a person so you don't have to let it keep you down, replaying it over and over in your head.    Gift Yourself   Forgiveness is something you give yourself not the other person.  Forgiveness does not mean the other person that offended you is getting away with something.  It really helps you to stop being the victim and to take steps to control, protect and assert yourself.  If you want to revenge the best way to get it is by being happy, and forgiveness let you be just that "happy".  When you do not forgive you leave yourself open to negative people, negative energy, a lower immune system, sickness, and disease.  I agree learning to forgive is not easy, but if

Fungal Infections of the Skin

What is a Fungal Infection? Fungal infections range widely in severity and significance.  Fungi are in constant contact with the skin, mucous membranes, and tissues of the body.  Most of these are harmless; some are irritating; others are severe and others are lethal.  Called mycoses, fungal infections are dealt with through the body's immune system.  They are most severe in people who have been taking antibiotics over a long period because antibiotics weaken the immune response and kill off bacteria that destroy fungi in the body.    Common fungal infections include candidiases and tinea (including ringworm and athlete's foot) among others.  Fungal infections arise because of an impaired immune system.  The immune response has been weakened by accumulated toxins that already exist within the lymph, liver, intestines, and spleen, which require ongoing protection by the immune cells.    All natural remedies are designed to cleanse the system and boost the immune re
