Heal Acne Naturally

 How can I Banish Pimples?

It is tough to say there is a single product out there that can completely get rid of pimples because what works for one person may not work for another. When it comes down to it, getting clearer skin has little to do with following the exact routine a person follows – it is all about experimenting. Still, there is a reason why there are certain skincare routines and treatment options that work for a handful of people. It may help reduce excess oil production or it could stop unwanted bacteria in its tracks.

If traditional acne products are not working as well as you would like them to, here are a few natural remedies you could try to treat acne on your own.

1 - Clay Masks

Clay masks (bentonite, kaolin, rhassoul) are beneficial for those looking to have great skin due to its powerful absorbing powers that gets red of toxins, bacteria, sebum, blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin. While doing this, it also delivers oxygen and circulation to the face. As it gets rid of things we do not want on our face, clays are filled with minerals that are transferred to the skin for the body to use (many of which we are deficit in).

2 - Exfoliate

Exfoliating the skin, at least weekly, will help remove debris and dead skin on the surface of your skin. The key in using the right exfoliator is choosing the correct level of abrasion based on your skin type (sensitive, normal). For example, a gentle exfoliant like oatmeal is perfect for those with delicate skin, and a mineral based exfoliate such as sea salt will yield the best results for those with normal to combination skin. Honey, coconut oil, and kefir are excellent bases to blend with the exfoliant of your choice due to their healing and bacteria fighting properties.

3 – Garlic

Garlic is nature’s incredible antibacterial that can help stop pimples when it is eaten or applied on the affected area. If you decide to use it topically, slice a portion of the clove thinly to get to the juice before placing it on the problem area. Alternatively, you may blend the garlic clove. Be sure to keep it on your skin for at least 10-30 minutes.

4- Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider may not smell appealing, but what it can do for the body, inside and out, makes up for it. You can drink it or apply it directly to the spot you wish, and be sure to dilute it with water to find the best solution that works for you. While it is a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, apple cider is equally refreshing. Raw, unfiltered apple cider is suggested because it is filled with the most nutrients. It can be used as a spot treatment when you are breaking out or as an overall toner for the face after cleansing.

5- Cornstarch

Many would not think that cornstarch is not good for anything other than cooking, but it is a splendid natural remedy that is soothing and gentle. It is ideal for those struggling with irritation and redness. Cornstarch may be used as a face mask or added only to areas of concern. It should be left on for at least 15-20 minutes, but it is safe enough to leave on overnight to see an incredible change.

6 - Egg Whites

Adding egg whites to your skin routine is sure to make a difference in not just helping fight pimples, but improving the overall texture and appearance. This cheap facial mask will even help decrease oil, the appearance of pores, and draw out any impurities. In order to achieve the best results, you should leave it on your skin until it is completely dry (as evidenced by a tight face). Here’s another bonus: you will notice an amazing glow after you wash it off.

7 – Hazelwood

Acne is caused from things such as excess debris, a lack of nutrients or an internal imbalance which results in inflammation. Knowing how acne is started and fixing the problem is what will clear your skin long-term. Baltic Essentials Hazelwood can help cure acne naturally because it is capable of helping the body restore itself to its rightful pH and promote a healthy GI system. The hazelwood also helps fight inflammation and irritation when it comes in contact with the skin. Flareup’s may very well be a thing of the past when wearing Baltic Hazelwood, not only as an accessory, but as a secret weapon.

Treating Diabetic Neuropathy Pain

Treat Neuropathic Pain

Living with Diabetes 

Diabetes is more than just an abnormal spike of glucose levels that your body is not able to control. It also involves a host of other complications such as depression, high risk of infections, blindness, and even nerve pain.  Nearly 50% of people who have diabetes suffer from nerve pain, and its presence can alter a person’s normal sleep pattern as well as their overall emotional and physical well-being. Many complications due to diabetes appear over time, more so in those who do not control and monitor their blood sugar properly.  

What is Diabetic Neuropathy?

Diabetic neuropathy is a pathological complication that creates various forms of nerve injuries when the body is no longer able to utilize a hormone, known as insulin, properly. It can strike anywhere, but it often affects nerves that run through the hands, feet, and limbs where it causes numbness and tingling. It can also cause a sharp, burning or aching pain that may be mild at first, but worsens over time as it spreads. Moving these limbs or walking can become difficult, and even the lightest of touches are unbearable for some.

Treating Pain due to Diabetic Neuropathy

Keeping your blood sugar in check is a definite must if you want to prevent making the condition worse. Other than that you may also try these methods to treat diabetic neuropathy:

  • Physical Therapy: Engaging in physical activities such as swimming, cycling, walking and other low impact exercises for 30-60 minutes a day is helpful. It will help control high blood pressure symptoms and blood sugar while improving range of motion and strength. Exercise will help your body respond to insulin and help lower your overall blood glucose levels to the point of reducing or eliminating the need for medication. It also lowers cholesterol, stress, and improves circulation, all of which help ease inflammation and control glucose.
  • Take Extra Care of Your Hands and Feet: Maintaining sen
    sation in these areas will become important. Be sure to look for sores, cuts, swelling, and injuries of any kind. No matter how small it may be, they must be addressed before it becomes a bigger problem and gets infected where it can lead to the infection spreading and possibly needing to amputate the area. Be sure to cleanse your hands and feet with warm water, and dry them completely before applying lotion. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes that have just enough space for your feet to breathe.
  • Use Natural Remedies: There are many natural anti-inflammatory remedies that can help stop nerve injury or prevent it from getting worse such as:

                * Cinnamon: This spices’ job doesn’t just stop at adding flavor to our foods. It can also help regulate blood sugar levels with just two teaspoons a day. Cinnamon oil may also be used as an alternative.

              * Vitamin B12: Many diabetics are found to be deficient in this vitamin, which may cause negative systematic effects on the body that will only
worsen nerve damage. It is best to get a blood test done specifically for this vitamin anytime you are uncertain you are getting enough from your diet.

              * Fish Oil (Omega-3): Fish oil is promoted as being good for the heart, but it can also help fight inflammation when you take at least 1,000mg per day.

              * Alpha lipoic acid: Consuming between 300-1,200mg of this antioxidant rich acid has
 proven to help prevent neuropathy and improve insulin sensitivity.

              * Primrose Oil: Another anti-inflammatory option that decreases numbness, tingling, and burning sensations caused by neuropathy when at least 360mg should be  taken per day to see results. 

             * Essential Oils: A variety of essential oils exist that work wonders by stopping inflammation and pain such as frankincense and peppermint. They should be dilated before applied topically or inhaled. You can take the benefits of essentials anywhere you go when you use an Essential Oils Necklace.

            * Amber: Treating inflammation within the body in a matter of minutes is possible with Baltic Essentials Amber. The succinic acid it contains has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that treat neuropathic pain naturally when it enters the bloodstream. Wearing Baltic Amber also provides soothing analgesic effects that help ease the pain as areas of inflammation are being treated.

 

Causes of Back Pain and How to Lessen It

Treat Back Pain

What Causes Back Pain

Back pain, for many, comes with or without a warning. It is common for younger people to experience it when they put too much strain on the area or do improper body mechanics. Even the fittest of people cannot escape from it; back pain can creep over time due to things like putting on your shoes, slipping into bed for the night or sitting down. These activities, although simple, do have an effect on your spinal health.

 While the same factors play a role for older adults as well, they are more prone to developing it simply because they are older, where muscles and bones weaken. This decline may start as early as 30-40 years of age. Younger adults often deal with back pain from the disk space (degenerative disk or lumbar herniation) asides from strains. Older adults often get it due to compression fractures and degeneration of the joints (osteoarthritis).

Other Reasons for Back Pain

There are a number of factors that may increase your risk or be the reason you feel back pain. More often than not, they are factors you can control if you want to reduce or eliminate the discomfort.

  • Your Occupation: Workers who spend a majority of their time lifting and bending objects are at the highest risk of pulling a muscle and injuring not only the back, but other areas as well. Those who spend just as much time sitting at a desk without getting up often enough to stretch are at just as much of a risk.
  • It’s in Your Genes: Heredity seems to play a significant role in just about everything. Diseases like ankylosing spondylosis, a type of arthritis, can adversely affect the spine and cause back pain.
  • Chronic and Acute Diseases: If you are suffering from a chronic disease such as other forms of arthritis or a cancer, your chances of going through back pain increase. Endometriosis, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, spinal stenosis, infections, and kidney stones.
  • Mechanical Breakdown: Wear and tear on the body, namely the spine, typically directly results in back pain. Surgeries, accidents, overuse, and age can cause abnormal spasms, tense muscles, spinal disk breakdown, and ruptured disks.
  • Smoking: Smoking poses a systematic effect on the body; it doesn’t just affect the lungs. The cardinal smoker’s cough can induce back pain for some. Smoking also reduces normal healing time so the discomfort a smoker feels anywhere around the body takes a longer time to go away.
  • Having a Sedentary Lifestyle: No matter how much you weigh, not working or stretching your body enough increases your changes in getting back pain. 
  • Being Overweight: Not being active enough and consuming more calories beyond your recommended limit will cause you to gain more than just weight. The added weight, regardless of its location, can cause pain and put added stress on the back.

 

Baltic Essentials Amber for Back Pain

Medicine is a multi-billion dollar industry that people use to treat, prevent, or improve their health. While no one can take away the fact that its existence has improved the lives of many, medicine is still not cure-all for everything. Many people find that other options work just as good – if not better. Others notice a significant improvement in managing their pain when they combine medicine with alternative treatment methods.

 

Baltic Essentials Amber has been used for hundreds of years as a reliable way to ease paPolished Cognac Turquoise 17 Inch Baltic Amber Necklace For Big Kid, Child, Or Adultin.

5 Tips to Try if You Have Back Pain

Help for Back Pain

 Back Pain is Common

Other than the common cold, back pain is a primary reason why people visit the doctor or go to see an orthopedist – and why wouldn’t it?  Our back is the core of our body, and we move it for just about every activity. Fortunately, 90% of people experience acute back pain, meaning it will go away within a matter of days or weeks. The other 10% of back pain is chronic, and is typical for those suffering with a disorder. Regardless, symptoms between the two are similar and range from shooting or stabbing pain to muscle aches that results in limited movement, flexibility, and inability to stand upright. 

Tips That Help Soothe Your Back

  1. Alternate between Hot and Cold: Compresses really can help alleviate uncomfortable sensations due to injuries. It can also reduce the amount of swelling and feelings of numbness. When you first notice any of these signs, you should apply a cold compress to the area first followed by a hot compress after 48 hours. Switching between the two in this order helps restore normal blood flow. 
  1. Resist the Temptation to Stay in Bed: Contrary to popular belief, resting your body after an injury is not best. While you do want to rest to some degree for a few hours when you must, you do not want to remain in bed for several days until it gets better or goes away. It is better to walk around engaging in some type of light activity if you want to treat back pain sooner.
  1. Keep Your Body Balanced: Proper range of movement when lifting and moving items are a must. It is best to bend your knees when picking up things. It makes a difference to sit straight on a chair and to try not to sit or stand too quickly – your posture means everything.
  1. Supplements and Herbs: The combination of magnesium and calcium are a force to be reckoned with in regards to reducing muscle spasms. One study found that the pair eased the severity of pain and enhanced lumbar spine movement in those with lower back issues. Glucosamine sulfate is another supplement that can treat back pain in individuals who experience it due to arthritis. Herbal options such as Arnica and Bryonia help ease chronic lower back pain when combined with physical therapy.
  1. Yoga: Stretching your back muscles is extremely therapeutic as it helps reduce the perception of pain, loosens tightened areas, rebuilds strength, range of motion, and aids in relaxation. Try these six stretches out:
  • Knee to Chest
  • Seated Piriformis Stretch
  • Cat-Cow Pose
  • Restful Pose
  • Lying Knee Twist
  • Cobra Stretch

Treating back pain can be tricky and although it is extremely common, it’s one of the many issues medicine has not yet found a genuine “cure” for.

Natural Option for Back Pain

Baltic Essentials Amber can help reduce or eliminate feelings of back pain in less than an hour. Amber has been used for decades as a way to treat discomfort although many are not familiar with it today. It can reduce both intensity and swelling due to its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties from the resin it secretes from the beads. This resin goes directly to the bloodstream where it heals the inured area at the source instead of blocking the transmission of pain to the brain like traditional medications do.  The amber can be worn all day although it is advised not to wear the necklace when sleeping to prevent choking (especially when kids or older adults are wearing it). It may be used alone or in addition to anything you are doing without having to worry about side effects

Eliminate Acne with One Product

Stubborn Acne

Acne is one of the most common condition that affect nearly 90% of people around the world, and everyone has probably experienced its unwanted arrival at least once in their lives. One of the most annoying things many could agree is Image result for acne girlthat the
condition is persistent and does not go away no matter what crazy methods we try. It helps to understand the root cause of your acne as it varies for many. De
pending on the cause, pimples can contribute to other illnesses and may be linked to:

  • Insulin resistance (Type II Diabetes)
  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Excess cortisol (as a result of high stress)

Taking a Closer Look at Commercial Products

It’s frightening to think that your staple skin product can also be one of the worst things for you because of the toxins and carcinogens it contains. The beauty products laid out on shelfs look attractive and say the “right” things because they are made to sell. Our skin is made to protect as much as it functions to absorb so the fragrances, preservatives, stabilizers and artificial colors are absorbed via our pores and can result in many long-term issues. Acne forms because of bacteria, clogged pores and, for many people, excess sebum production. There are two primary causes of excess oil production: excess hormones and toxicity in the body. The chances of increasing the risk of either cause is increased when using synthetic skincare products.

Get Rid of Tooth Pain

Does your Tooth Need Personal or Professional Touch?

Depending on the root of the problem, you may or may not have to go to a dentist for tooth pain. If you have an inkling that your tooth pain is due to an abscess, loose fillings, cavities, or extreme sinus condition, remedies should only be used at relief until you can visit your doctor. However, if you are experiencing tooth or gum pain due to minor, short-lasting sinus conditions from being sick, the recent addition or removal of braces or because your wisdom teeth are growing in without alignment complications, at-home care may be the only solution you need to take care of it. Below are a few options you can do to take care of toothaches in addition to or without having to resort to using chemicals such as Orajel.

 

Remedies to Treat Tooth Pain Naturally

 

Salt Water SolutionImage result for tooth pain

Salt water is an excellent cleanser when you need to treat infected areas infested with bacteria and pus as it loosens debris as it eases the pain. Treat the solution as a mouthwash by swishing it for about 30 seconds before spitting it out to draw out the debris and reduce swelling Add about half a teaspoon of salt to every cup of water. Be sure to boil the water to help dissolve the mixture quicker. The warmth provides even more soothing benefits that extends as far as the throat.

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint is fragrant and flavorful as tea, and drinking it will help numb the pain. Peppermint contains tannins, an astringent, that help with both swelling and pain. Add a teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves to every eight ounces of water and allow it to sit for 15-30 minutes to cool down. When it does, swish it in your mouth the same way you would salt water and spit it out. Alternatively, you can use the tea bag directly on your tooth after heating or freezing it.

Hydrogen Peroxide

The mouth is able to effectively eliminate bacteria, odor or foul taste when hydrogen peroxide is swished then rinsed with water. In order to avoid possible irritation or burning of the gums, combine equal portions of 3% hydrogen peroxide with water rather than using the full strength. Any pain felt will also be temporarily relieved. It is important to not swallow this solution because it can cause intestinal or stomach issues.

Clove Oil

Cloves, derived from eugenol, is a naturally occurring anesthetic that numbs the nerves to decrease the level of pain. A little goes a long way with this, and it should be used with caution. If you are not careful, it can do more harm than good in regards pain and sensitivity should it land on the tongue or tender gum tissue. It is best to apply 1-2 drops on a cotton ball directing it to the affected tooth to have the most control. You will notice the numbing effects not long after applying it, but keep in mind it only lasts for a few minutes.

Ginger and Cayenne Pepper 

Ginger and cayenne pepper are spicy in their own way, and one would think both should stay far away from the mouth when dealing with tooth pain to avoid irritation. Interestingly enough, the combination does more good than harm when the application is done right. They work as powerful painkillers, especially cayenne pepper. The active ingredient of the red pepper is capsaicin, which prevent pain messages from being sent to the brain. Make a 50:50 paste with water and at apply it to the area with a cotton ball. As a note, you only want it to touch the tooth while keeping it away from the tongue and gums. The paste may remain as long as it is needed until the pain leaves.

Tooth pain is a domino effect within the mouth where one thing activates another until pain is the final result. Inflammation that travel to the gums, and tooth pain happen for a variety of reasons, but treatment options often involve getting rid of the infection
causing the inflammation. If you are dealing with tooth pain you want to ease while waiting for a specialist (when severe) or are having minor issues that can be controlled without the help of a professional, you can also try amber. Baltic Essentials Amber naturally treats tooth pain caused by inflammation and infection as it simultaneously provides analgesic effects to the area. When you wear baltic amber, the beads are activated after being warmed from the body and move to the bloodstream. Toothaches can be a problem of the past when it is treated properly and the soonest possible when you do see it.

The Best Natural Solution for Acute Pain

The Perception of Pain

Image result for acute pain
We are able to recognize pain, an unpleasant sensory and psychological experience, from actual or potential damage to tissue due to pathways that communicate to the brain. Pain receptors, or nociceptors, are activated from the site and play an active role in letting the body know that something is not right. There are endless possibilities linked to the cause of pain. Acute pain is complex and can be difficult to diagnose as much as it is to treat. Acute pain is self-limiting and may stay for as short as a few hours or as long as a few weeks, but no longer than three months. The autonomic system will activate, and you may notice shallow breathing, sweating, guarding, grimacing, pupil dilation, paleness, hypertension, and tachycardia. In the event acute pain is not cared for as effectively as it should be, infections, decreased immunity, and hypercoagulability can occur. The chances that acute pain may turn into chronic pain is there, and ideally, you want to treat a problem before it gets to that stage.

Managing the Pain

Although you can tell someone that you are in pain and describe how it feels, how intense it is, how long it lasted and if there is something that ease the pain or makes it worse, you alone understand your pain better than anyone else.Image result for manage pain You can tell if the discomfort is something you can handle or if you need other options to get your mind off it or reduce the level of pain. There are times we just need to rest the area, apply some ice or warmth or partake in activities as a form of distraction and its as if the pain never existed in the first place. When you do have to resort to using other options to feel better, those options do not necessarily have to include using drugs that are costly or contain harsh chemicals. Easing pain can be managed holistically without using medications.

Natural Cure for Acute Pain

When you need a little bit of help to cope with acute pain from an injury, surgery, or illness, Baltic Essentials Amber is the perfect natural option available. Amber is derived from fossilized resin from trees and contains potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. The active substance, known as succinic acid, is released from the beads and travels to the bloodstream after it is warmed from the body.

Skin Products and Harsh Chemicals

We all love taking the best care for our skin, and we always seem to get attracted to ads that promise us certain results that we are looking for. Those words we read while we shop in stores or look online bate and reel many of us to purchase and them regardless of the cost. Although the products advertised does its job by cleansing the skin to help with certain problems, there is another complication that comes with its use. The amount of harmful chemicals added in most skin care products are absorbed by your skin and has the potential to cause damage to your skin even when its production was made to heal your skin. There is also the chance of increasing the number of toxins and carcinogens in your body when your system becomes unable to clear accumulated debris. In this light, there’s the question if skin products do more harm than good, and if there is a better way to get great skin without having to use chemicals.

Fixing the Problem vs. Fixing the Symptoms

 

Acute and chronic heaImage result for inflammationlth problems caused by inflammation can induce pain and stress on an individual. When you think you’ve tried just about everything, you final pitstop for help is often the doctors. While there is nothing wrong going to the doctor and getting treated for an issue you believe is problematic (in fact, it is also recommended), you should still keep in mind that the drugs that are prescribed to you often address the symptoms rather than the cause. This means the inflammation and toxins still exist and overwhelm your body, and has the potential of getting worse over time. When we are born, most of us are healthy without complications; they develop as we grow older for a lot of reasons. One of these reasons is what we are putting inside our body without thinking of the consequences. Of course, it is not bad to splurge every once in a while, a diet made of empty calories can impede the body’s self-healing capabilities. Replacing this type of diet with foods, herbs, and spices can help address the imbalance going on internally and remove toxins.

Top Anti-Inflammatory Foods

  • Olive/Fish Oil: Healthy fats rich in omega-3, such as olive oil, offers amazing anti-inflammatory benefits comparable to ibuprofen.
