Melasma is a very difficult and tricky skin condition to resolve. It appears as dark patches of pigmentation on the skin that often sneaks up onto a woman’s face. One day out-of-the-blue, she suddenly notices a dark shadow or “patch” appearing on her face. The hyperpigmentation can vary from wide and diffuse to a bunch of smaller dark spots (like freckles) that never bothered her before, that suddenly grow bigger and darker and merge into a single larger dark patch on her face.

The topic of today is about Lyme Disease, which, specifically, needs to be addressed in an integrative fashion. Those of you out there who have Lyme Disease or know people who do have Lyme Disease, know that the traditional conventional way that medicine approaches this is truly ineffective unless you catch it very early in the infectious stage. If you can diagnose the condition in the first month or so, then antibiotics can take care of it.

 

WHAT IS GLUTATHIONE?

Glutathione is a simple protein made of three amino acids, glutamine, cysteine and glycine.  It is the body’s most important antioxidant, and plays a major role in the health of every tissue and organ in the human body… Including you skin!

Glutathione helps your mitochondria produce ATPInside every cell in the body there is energy generating apparatus called mitochondria.  Mitochondria convert the oxygen we breathe and the food we eat into chemical energy called ATP.  Everything a cell does, from its own maintenance to making important substances that other cells need (like insulin for example) is dependent on ATP.

 

Treating eczema, a condition whose cause remains unclear, can turn out to be a rather sensitive topic. For one thing, most over-the-counter and doctor-prescribed treatments for eczema have been proven to be ineffective—not to mention expensive and laced with side effects. That being said, it’s important to know how to prevent the evolution of mild cases of eczema and alleviate the pain caused by the more severe ones.

ECZEMA TREATMENT TIPS FOR ADULTS

The truth is modern medicine still can’t pinpoint exactly what will work for the apparition of eczema rashes on your skin.

 

They look like small flats of hanging skin and are more common than you imagine.

Although not dangerous or painful, skin tags are a source of discomfort. That is why so many people are eager to get rid of them as soon as they develop. Before learning how to remove skin tags safely and painlessly, here are just a few of the questions about skin tags and what they are all about that we are going to answer in this post:

 

What are Skin Tags?

 

50% to 90% of pregnant women experience stretch marks around their stomach in the latter part of their pregnancy. Teenagers often experience stretch marks during the puberty years due to growth spurts. Though stretch marks may fade over time, they will rarely, if ever, completely disappear. Weight lifters are also prone to stretch marks in their arms and shoulder areas as the muscles expand quickly in these areas stretching the skin and causing stretch marks.

Once upon a time…. the skin on our face was tight and toned, and our cheeks proudly proclaimed to the world

“I am healthy, and filled with vim vigor and vitality”

Then one day our cheeks start getting loose and sagging… our jaw line loses its sharp contours… hanging jowls begin to appear, folds around our mouth deepen, marionette lines frame our chin that proclaim to the world…

“gravity is in charge of my face”!

 

Why pay so much lip-service to the different types of eczemas?

After all, they’re just rashes that can’t be cured and tend to go away on their own, right? While the above may be true, it’s also true that eczema is an issue for 10-20% of U.S. children and approximately 3% of adults. The drop in percentage of people affected is explicable through the fact that most children born with eczema will outgrow it by age 10.

 

The first key to understanding why teens get acne is that poor exercising and eating habits are not the cause of teenage acne. No, while diet can make things worse for people who get acne, those french fries and chocolate did not cause those darn acne pimples. Similarly, while not exercising and poor hygiene are definite contributors to poor health, washing your face too much or not getting enough exercise also does not cause teenage acne.
