Homeopathy and Acne

Updated: Jan 9


Acne is a common skin condition that occurs normally in teens and young adults. It occurs when the hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil. This then causes blackheads, pimples and whiteheads. It can appear on the face, chest, shoulders and upper back.

Acne can be quite painful for an individual and depending on how bad it gets can lead to low mood and self-esteem.

As a strong believer in our emotion creates our disease the emotion attached to the rise of acne is the feeling of being uncomfortable in your skin. insecure, not good enough and unworthy of love. They hold on to self-hatred and control and perfectionism in some individuals suffering from acne.

Which is why when treating acne is require more than just creams and washes to treat the underlying cause. If we simply suppress the physical manifestation it will come back up as a new physical manifestation somewhere else in the body. The inner emotions and the other physical internal element need to be addressed for true healing to occur.

A lot of the treatments for acne are extremely harsh messing with your hormones and placing high chemical cream that strips away the natural oil from the skin, with potential side effects.

What is the underlining cause?

Emotions are one - our mindset and how we think creates disease

Hormones of course which is why it so common in teens as their hormones have not stabilised yet

Diet - Food is thy medicine let not forget this important statement, what you eat is always a factor in health and wellbeing. Food is high in sugar and fats. Some studies have been conducted about Chocolate and acne showing it gets worse. Gluten may also be a factor.

Liver and Gut health - These are the two organs involved in your skin health if either on of these is not functioning well it is possible for skin to be affected as well as any other aspects of health.

Stress and Genetic also play a role.

How can Homeopathy help you?

Homeopathy works on the bases of trigger your body to self-heal, rather than just working on one aspect of the whole picture. It works on the whole picture. So in this case, for example, it will rebalance the hormones and support the emotional element and mindset.

Homeopathic remedies are individualised with over 4000 to choose from, so 5 people coming to me for Acne will all receive different remedies as each person expresses themselves and their disease state differently. One person may be really angry and irritable all the time with the acne and the other weeps and want to hide.

Through consultation diet and lifestyle would also be discussed and supported.

A cream which I make up using the elements of Vitamin E and A as well as a mushroom extract supports the current surface of the skin while the homeopathic and diet changes work on the internal aspect.
