Homeopathy For Hormonal Acne
Associating it to their social identity, acne and pimples are a common concern among teenagers.
These are an outer manifestation of some underlying cause and can be well treated with holistic treatments such as homeopathy.
As there is an increase in the secretion of growth hormones during teenage years, acne and pimples become a common concern.
Excessive secretion of androgen and progesterone stimulate the oil gland and lead to increased sebum production causing acne.
Usually, people with acne have a positive family history of acne. Acne mainly appears over the face, forehead, chest, and back.
Acne occurring to children during puberty is called acne vulgaris while adult acne is known as acne rosacea.
Acne vulgaris forms -comedones, papules, pustules, cysts, nodules and scars.
As girls are a bit more conscious about their look and appearance, I have treated many cases of acne and pimples.
Homeopathic remedies effectively heal the underlying cause and help in the complete elimination of acne scars.
Here, I would like to highlight that remedy is not a quick fix solution rather a treatment that works for complete optimization of oil glands.
This help prevents the recurring pattern of scars and eruptions.
Further in homeopathy, the remedies are all natural and do not cause any side effects.
Unlike high dose conventional pharma, the medicines are diluted to the point that only healing information is retained.
Homeopathic remedy for acne might take time depending upon your personal case history but healing is long-lasting as it works through your body’s own natural healing mechanisms.
Homeopathy is one of the most popular hormonal acne natural remedies.
Difference Between Acne and Pimples
Hair follicles, sebum (oily secretion by sebaceous glands), and skin cells together may form a plug. This can lead to the build-up of bacteria and result in acne.
Pimples, on the other hand, are caused when skin pores get blocked on account of dead cells collected by sebum.
Acne is mainly genetic in origin while pimples are not.
Homeopathy for Acne Scars
As discussed above acne mainly affects the teenage population and can carry over to adulthood if timely treatment is not taken.
Many times I also come across acne cases where the person remains psychologically disturbed even after undergoing conventional treatments.
This happens as western medicine does not consider the emotional and mental turmoil one faces while suffering from acne scars.
Conventional medicines include resorcinol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, sulphur, Retin-A, erythromycin, oxytetracycline
Though these medicines may work for the outer symptom but alter the inner body system and cause various side effects.
Consequently, these conventional treatments leave the patient helpless providing only a temporary relief.
Homeopathic remedies, on the other hand, regulate oil production and help in the natural elimination of scars.
These remedies help in treating the source cause for the most effective relief.
A well-qualified homeopath ascertains your personal history and prescribes remedies suiting your particular case of acne.
After analyzing your case of acne and associated symptoms, a homeopath determines the best set of remedies.
As every patient suffers from the safe condition differently- emotionally, mentally and physically, a homeopath considers his uniqueness and prescribes accordingly.
Depending upon the nature of acne a combination of remedies may also be prescribed.
During your course of consultation, you may sometimes see an aggravation of symptoms but there is nothing to worry about as it is an indication that the remedies are working.
Sometimes a change of remedies may be prescribed but this is normal and helps a homeopath target the source cause.
Precautionary Measures for Acne and Pimples
• Keep your face clean and wash it often throughout the day to keep dirt and impurity at bay
• Keep your hair oil-free and use an oil balancing shampoo as an oil containing locks can touch your face and cause acne and pimples.
• Avoid junk and fatty foods
• Reduce sun exposure as UV rays can harm your skin
• Avoid using makeup when possible
