For your convenience we have summarized some of the herbal treatment descriptions. Please note, these are just little previews. To read all about how the illness develops, simple tips to prevent and treat them as well as home remedies, please click on the headings.

Acne/ Blood Cleansing
Acne is a process where the body is trying to eliminate toxins by pushing them out through skin. These toxic materials may become infected on their way out, but this infection is really just another way of assisting in the expulsion as it brings the material to a head and to the surface.
Herbs:The herbs in my standard acne/blood cleanser mix includes Fenugreek, Nettle, Horsetail, Violet Leaves, Echinacaea, Red Clover, Mistletoe, Phytolacca, Rosehips and St. Mary's Thistle as well as the Bach Flower Remedy Crab Apple.

Alopecia (Sudden hair loss)
Alopecia episodes are common enough in adults and are always a result of some sort of shock to the nutrition of the hair follicles in the scalp. Patients report that clumps of hair come away while combing or brushing, often in circular patches.
Herbs: Maritime Pine Bark, Sage, Nettle, Rue, Prickly Ash, Vervain, Ginseng, Rosemary and Rosehips, as well as the Bach Flower Remedy Crab Apple, and the toxic shock mix includes:- Nettle, Horsetail, Violet Leaves, Blue Flag, Bladderack, Echinacaea, Mistletoe, Rosehips and St. Mary's Thistle as well as the Bach Flower Remedies Crab Apple, Larch and Rescue Remedy.

Fingernail Health - Circulation / Minerals Tonic
This internal herbal tonic, to be used in conjunction with the fingernail health oil, will maximize the circulation of blood to the fingertips, warm the hands and carry extra minerals, especially Silica, right to the nail roots.
Herbs: The herbs in this mix include:- Equisetum, Nettle, Bladderack, Rosehips, Comfrey, Maritime Pine and Prickly Ash.

Fingernail Health - Growth Stimulating Oil
This powerful oil will dramatically improve the circulation to the roots of the nails.
Herbs: It contains; Arnica, Bladderack, Comfrey, Rosemary, and Wintergreen to improve circulation locally and to drive these minerals and trace elements directly to the roots of fingernails ensuring optimum health, strength and growth.

Fungal Infections (Fingernails)
A drop or two of this concentrated mix dropped in behind the nails and rubbed around the area provides an opportunity to slow down and stop fungal invasion.
Herbs: Thuja and the Bach Flower Crab Apple.

Hives
Hives or Urticaria is a reaction in the skin characterized by small pale or reddened swellings(wheals). They are a anaphylactic reaction triggered by allergens that may include insect stings, drugs or chemical additives, allergy shots or certain plants and foods. Often the cause is never known.
Herbs: My herbal mix includes Chamomile, Euphorbia, Dandelion, Alfalfa, and Hypericum along with the Bach Flowers Rock Rose and Walnut. This combination calms the nervous sytem, strengthens the metabolic system and addresses any allergies that result from insect bites as well as soothing the irritation.

Plantar Warts
Warts are a fungal infestation and they are a fibrous growth on the skin with an upper surface which is rough wart appearing on the surface. Typically attempts to burn them off with liquid nitrogen just leave a hole in which the wart regrows.
Herbs: The herb Thuja is specific for Plantar Warts and a simple program of topical application of the super concentrated extract of Thuja is normally enough to kill a wart in only a few weeks.

Psoriasis Program
Psoriasis is a chronic recurring disease recognizable by silvery scaley patches of skin. Medically there is no known cause but it is thought to be connected to immune mechanisms. The condition often runs in families.
Herbs: The internal mixture containing the herbs; Hypericum, Euphorbia, Vervain, Comfrey, Equisetum, Maritime Pine and Buchu along with the Bach Flower Remedies; Holly, Chicory, Crab Apple, Honeysuckle and Impatiens. Externally the application of a small amount of Hypericum Oil is also useful and I mix in the same bach flowers into the oil as above.

Ringworm Ointment/ Drops
Ringworm is a fungal skin infection caused by several different fungi and are generally classified by its location on the body.
Herbs: Externally apply a soothing cream that includes Thuja and Calendula, as well as the Bach Flowers Centaury, and Crab Apple.

Scabies Herbal Treatment
Scabies is a mite infection that produces tiny reddish pimples and severe itching. The infection spreads easily person to person by physical contact . The mite is short lived and normal laundering destroys them.
Herbs: I treat scabies with Echinacea, Garlic, Wormwood, Nettle, Red Clover, Violet Leaves, Dandelion and Thuja as well as the Bach Flower Crab Apple. For the rash I recommend applying a mix of Hypericum Oil and Thuja along with Crab Apple in a Vitamin. E based cream.

Shingles Program

Herbs:

Skin Recovery Cream (WheatGrass)
Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Cream is suitable for all skin types. It is an ideal skin care treatment for women or mens' face or body. Also safe and suitable for infants, children and the elderly.
Herbs: Wheatgrass

Skin Allergy/ Irritation Acute
This treatment provides relief and reduces symptoms at the time of an acute attack of skin irritation. It may be taken internally by any person who has an overly sensitive or reactive skin and may be used in conjunction with the Skin Irritant Cream treatment
Herbs: The herbs I have chosen to deal with these sorts of acute allergy or irritation attacks are:- Thuja, Vervain, Euphorbia, Chamomile, Alfalfa and Hypericum along with the Bach Flowers Walnut, Impatiens, Holly and Rock Rose.

Skin Allergy/ Irritation Chronic
a standard mix I have developed to help those with the most common underlying reasons for their chronic skin problems.
Herbs: This mix includes:- Chamomile, Vervain, Kelp, Blue Flag, Euphorbia and Pine Bark along with the Bach Flowers Impatiens, Walnut and Rescue Remedy.

Skin Irritant Cream
To treat all kinds of skin irritations.
Herbs: The primary Nervine suitable to overly sensitive and itchy skin is the herb Vervain. Along with this I include in my Skin Irritant Cream the herbs:- Calendula, Pine Bark, Comfrey, Thuja and Chamomile along with the Bach Flowers Walnut, Rescue Remedy, Crab Apple and Impatiens.

Skin Magic
This herbal mix represents the culmination of my knowledge and experience in skin repair, healing and health. If you seek to protect your skin from the sun or from cancer, clear blemishes and maintain peak health and youthfulness you can do no better.
Herbs: Comfrey , Pine Bark ,Chamomile ,Hypericum ,Slippery Elm ,Thuja ,Equisetum ,Selected Bach Flowers (Walnut, Rescue Remedy, Crab Apple, Water Violet.)

Stretch Marks Prevention
This cream can then be massaged daily into your tummy, perineum and upper thighs, or anywhere else you want your skin to be in top shape. It will support the elasticity of the skin during the stretching and allow it to spring back more effectively.
Herbs: A very good start toward minimising stretch marks is to get a good Vitamin E cream and add 10% by volume of an extract combination of the herbs Comfrey, Hypericum, Maritime Pine, Equisetum, Slippery Elm and Wheat Grass to it.

Sun Sensitivity
This combination of herbs works toward supporting the repair of sun damaged skin cells and the nerves which supply them as well as protecting against fungal or other infections which can take hold in any area of damage. Finally and most importantly, the Maritime Pine antioxidant is working directly on the fundamentals of the immunity to support this system in its task of dealing with any cancers which can result from sun damaged cells.
Herbs: Comfrey, Hypericum Oil, Chamomile, Thuja, Calendula and Maritime Pine bark extracts with the Bach Flowers Walnut and Rescue Remedy in an aqueous cream before and after exposure to strong sunlight.

Warts Treatment Topical
Warts are a viral/ fungal infestation and they can appear on any part of the body but normally on the hands and limbs. They are most common on young persons between the age or 11 and 16, often appearing pre puberty and disappearing post puberty.
Herbs: The herb Thuja is specific for Warts and a simple program of topical application of the super concentrated extract of Thuja will definitely shift them if they are ready to go.
