Most people have started the skin journey by using steroid creams, antihistamine or hormonal pills to stop the symptoms but as soon as these are stopped. The skin flares up even worse than before using them, so it perpetuates a cycle.
Homeopathy can be very helpful for chronic skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, there are other options than standard medical creams and with a few homeopathic remedies, and with a little bit of patience things can really improve!
Being diagnosed with a chronic condition is difficult, but being diagnosed with a chronic skin problem- is worse so because while YOU CAN FEEL THE EFFECTS IN YOUR BODY, OTHERS CAN SEE THE EFFECTS ON YOUR BODY!
Having a skin problem makes you conscious of the way you look. But at the same time, it is also very distressing to be suffering from constant discomfort like itchiness. This not only may affect the person but also those living around them.
If you are a mother, I understand you feel anxious seeing your baby's skin so sore and itchy, and how badly it affects your sleep.
I know that children with eczema tend to wake up several times at night with the itching and therefore so does the mother! So improving your child's eczema is going to have a general positive impact on all the family.
I get patients that feel desperate when they come to see me with itching and flaking or broken skin, I understand that this is something that is affecting their everyday life, and their self-esteem. That is why I work with therapeutic remedies, to help alleviate those symptoms while working deeper in your case.
When you come to see me, I take into consideration how you are feeling as well as your skin symptoms and I prescribe remedies to cover that.
Chronic skin disease are complex in nature and when it comes to treating them with Homeopathy, it requires some patience on the part of both -the patient and the practitioner.
However, patients see some improvement from one month to the other and in most cases, after the 3rd appointment, you can see good changes in some of the symptoms experienced. It is very rewarding to see the itching decreasing, the skin looking less irritated and finally getting clearer.
I get really happy to see my patients on each appointment because we can both see the changes happening and it brings a sense of satisfaction to my work.
When things get to a standstill or some of the symptoms return for a while (and trust me it does happen!), we can both be more patient when we revisit the beginning of the case and see the progress we have made and usually, that gives us both the determination and patience required to continue searching for the next remedy.
I love to work with the Banerji protocols in skin cases because they provide such great tools for working at the deeper level as well as proving therapeutic support.
In cases that the progress is slow, I add other tools that help to quicken the pace and the combination of these methods is what makes such fantastic success rates in my practice!
Well I had a nasty outbreak of pustules on my tummy and Christina fixed me right up. Completely cleared up
Cristina is an amazing homeopath who has a lot of knowledge and experience on skin diseases. At the same time, she shows great support and genuine empathy to her patients. She always finds the time to write back to me when I need help and she's always extremely supportive and helpful
Cristina is both a wonderful person and very talented homeopath. I’d highly recommend her practice to anyone looking for alternative and effective treatments.
These are very different problems to treat!
Acute skin problems which are uncomplicated such as impetigo, rashes, boils, urticaria, herpes, etc are quick to respond to homeopathy and much easier to treat.
In my clinic, I always look at how long has the person has had the problem, if it is something that has just come up recently and it has a clear origin, then I know that the improvement is going to be quick. But if they have had that problem for several years, I need to explain to the patient that things may take a bit longer to resolve.
Some chronic skin problems involve the immune system and they become difficult to treat. However, with patience from both sides, beautiful results can be achieved.
