4 Causes of Chronic Scar Tissue Formation, Holistic Treatment of Recurring Scars

Dear Ed,

Scar tissue externally or internally isn’t just a cosmetic problem. I’ve come across situations where internal scar tissue such as on the womb or digestive organs can be life threatening as it comes in the way of normal function.

Scar tissue on muscles and ligaments can become the reason for weakness and atrophy downstream from there and change the person’s life as they slowly lose the ability to do things they need to.

A lot of the time, people don’t know that internal scars are the cause of chronic pain in an area as they keep that area inflexible and sucking up energy from the surroundings in this permanent state of tearing and repair, tearing and repair. Continue reading

Anxiety Triggered Inflammation – 3 Decisive Ways to Break the Cycle

Dear Ed,

Recently, the majority of inflammatory conditions I’ve been noticing have been anxiety triggered.

People feel helpless, Ed, when told to “just calm down,” and “Stop being anxious.” Once you’re actually breaking out in inflammations and allergies, and putting on water weight (fluid retention), that’s already the body saying that anxiety that should be expressed is being suppressed.

Unfortunately, Ed, despite decades of an unofficial movement stressing that emotions should be released instead of held in, in everyday reality, people still are constrained and held back. Continue reading

Vibrational Assault on the Liver – Signs and Herbs for Recovery

The liver’s work with frequency; Symptoms of Vibrational Assault on the Liver; Becoming allergic to one thing after another; Herbs for Recovery from Liver Trauma; Miasmatic Warfare; Liver Trauma caused by traumatic weaning off mother’s milk

Dear Ed,

Back in the day when Granddad was in the British Army, looking after horses, nearly all health problems were seen as aspects of liver weakness, damage, function and so on. Any sort of long term health support was rated as valuable or not on the basis of how much it supported the liver. Continue reading

Herbs for first-aid for the skin after an emotional or nervous blow-out; Electrical and energetic assault on skin; Herbs for rehabilitation of skin cells from long term trauma; How to make your own oil extracts and creams

Dear Ed,

The skin is full of nerve endings. It is a sense organ in its own right, you know. It has nerve endings to sense things like temperature, pressure, and even “sixth sense” events such as energy fields around us; “the hair on my hand rose” for example.

The skin has its own intelligence and is very much part of the nervous system, as it is also very much a part of the hormonal functioning of the body.

It’s easy to see the effect of the emotional experiences we go through on our skin, especially on our faces as that’s the skin surrounding so many of our sense organs and in these days the part of us we use for expression the most.

A big part of treating our skin therefore should be aimed at healing and restoring the health of the nerve endings. The good thing about using herbs for skin healing, is that the herbs which promote wound healing also promote nerve ending healingComfrey for example, a herb used traditionally for overall skin health, heals the little wounds we can’t see in the mirror but are there as a result of long term weathering. It also soothes the nerve endings, feeds them literally feeds them.

Calendula, another wound healer and anti-infection agent, is a powerful nerve ending healer as well in the way it cakes the nerve endings which could be in shock, with a sort of temperature shield in the moment.

Myrrh, another wound healer, is like a blanket for the nerve endings. I don’t think I could put it better – a blanket. You know what means for nerves that have experienced a blow out.

But these are first-aid.

As someone who’s been through hell emotionally I can tell you that a time comes when you begin to see the effect of long term trauma on the skin. Long term sleep deprivation, long term nutrition deficiency, long term assault on the hormonal balance of the body, long term stress in general.

Rehabilitation of the skin from long term trauma starts with internal treatment.

There’s precious little an external treatment will do, if our liver is underperforming, our lungs, our heart and so on. A holistic treatment aimed at strengthening the body, addressing specific organ weakness is absolutely necessary.

Internal nutrition for rehabilitation from skin trauma would ideally include:

Bamboo or Horsetail (Equisetum) or Pearl Millet powder – All of these are powerhouses of silica – a substance very required for skin cell health.

Good fat and saturated oils – I have found it practically impossible to rehabilitate a nervous system – or the hormones for that matter – on a low fat diet. The body uses the fat content in our food as an indication of “it is well”. Without that indication, and the practical help of the fat in cushioning the nerves, most other treatments aren’t going to go too far.

It’s a scam all around – the low fat craze – it promotes nervous instability such as humanity has never seen before, metabolic imbalance and obesity.

You can eat all kinds of “nutrition” but if we’re not getting fat, the body believes itself to be in malnutrition and will start retaining whatever little fat it can, and even water as water retention is an important part of the body’s response to crisis.

Long term low fat diets result in an atrophied digestive system that is without nerve ending cushioning, making us hyper-reactive and prone to allergies, not to mention the various emotional and psychological conditions like panic disorder, anxiety and so on.

When our bodies believe we’re starving, it’s a serious crisis and this shows up in every area of our lives.

So good fat is just THAT important.

Good yeast and Probiotic is also important as part of a diet to heal the skin. When we have any sort of emotional blow-out, the drastic temperature changes our skin cells experience as we process high voltage electricity through the nervous system and tissues, yeast cells which are sensitive to electric impulses, die off.

The yeast cell population has to be replenished. They do the micro-cleaning up work whether in the digestive system or the skin. If our skin’s natural yeast population is repeatedly attacked through high voltage nervous electricity (you can see the effect most clearly on the face of someone who has experienced a nervous breakdown, someone who is on drugs that drastically change nervous frequency in a short period of time), the yeast cells are chronically low and this results in the build up of toxins that should have been eliminated, hanging about just beneath the skin or often surfacing as well.

Eruptions, pimples, warts, moles and such, contrary to popular “science” are not caused by infection agents or “viruses” (the latest excuse for everything – I believe they’re going to discover the virus that causes marital problems soon and “mandate” that masks be worn in bed and in the shower as well).

Rather, skin eruptions and collections of toxins are the body’s inability to smoothly clean out toxins and are indicative of a struggling yeast population.

Natural probiotics such as natural yoghurt, cheese, fermented food are required as part of the diet in the long term to rehabilitate the yeast population in the body. Alcoholic drinks and breads that contain real yeast are also traditional medicine for the same. In fact, traditional diet all over the world includes natural yeast on a regular if not daily basis.

Electrical and Energetic Assault on the Body

Many long term and “spreading” skin conditions such as warts and moles are also caused by electrical assault on the energy field of the body, that cause a general cell breakdown in the way cells reproduce – causing some cells to make truncated new cells – or cells which are barely alive so the body doesn’t throw them out at once, but which are no use because they aren’t fully functional. They get stored here and there about the body. Tumors and warts are expressions of general electrical and energetic assault on the body.

To deal with these effectively a drastic approach aimed at increasing the overall vitality of the body through emotional healing is required.

It’s the truth Ed, that few speak of – the connection between immunity and emotional well being. The effect of general electrical and radiation type assault on the body is emotional and nervous depression and the corresponding fall in immunity. To get back to normal, the happiness of the person must come back.

The will to live, hope in the future, all these boost immunity like few other things will do.

However, we can be helped big-time by herbs like Rosehips, Ashwagandha or Winter Cherry and Pine Bark, which have nutrition that makes the electrical system – i.e. the nervous system stable and strong. Most of the class of herbs called “adaptogens” strengthen the energy field.

Topical Treatment of the Skin with Herbs

The same herbs we take internally for nervous system recovery from break downs and nerve healing, applied topically in creams, and gels and so on deliver those micro-nutrients to damaged skin cells.

It’s important not to cause over-stimulation of the skin cells which are already injured through long term high electric voltage. Herbs and medicines that promote healing through raising the heat locally – Turmeric, Golden Seal for example should be avoided or used in very small doses.

Oils are a great form of delivery because they cushion the tired nerve endings. But if the skin is already very oily (a great sign that the body is already dealing with the problem – excess skin oiliness is the body healing nerve ending blow out) or the skin is prone to perspiration (another great sign – the body’s response with sweat is an indication of its replenishing yeast population and balancing out hormones) , aloe vera gel and ointments such as calamine lotion and beeswax are good carriers of the herbs.

Whatever you do, resist a violent approach to the skin. Just a little of a herb is enough.

To make your own treatment, get the herbs themselves and extract them into oil by slow heating them in a double boiler or put the oil in a glass bottle, put the herbs in, and sit it on a towel at the bottom of a pot, fill the pot up with water and heat the water up every time it goes cold, or keep it on the lowest heat possible, so you keep the oil warm. You’ll know by instinct, or by the color of the oil when the herb’s been extracted into the oil.

The other method of treatment – the easier option – is to buy the herbal tinctures, aloe vera gel, calamine lotion – or any other cream or ointment of your choice that doesn’t have strong attacking agents in it. Unscented is good.

You then put a few drops of the tincture in with the gel or cream, mix well, and that’s it. Don’t go overboard with the drops, all you need is a 3-4 drops for about 100 ml or 4 oz of a cream or gel. Any more and you’re overwhelming the skin cells.
