In homeopathic "medical histories", in contrast to the ones kept by the general practitioners, one can see a record: "looks his/her age." Premature aging, loss of physical and spiritual beauty are interconnected processes. These are the results of not only an unhealthy lifestyle, but physical and mental suffering. Beauty in its truest sense still must start from within.

Natural, gradual aging of the body is unfortunately part and parcel of our lives. However, different people are getting older in different ways! Someone is able to maintain beauty at a very mature age, and someone just passed 30 years and aged drastically. What does it depend on? We can say that on the one hand - on the heredity of the organism and on the other on the state of health.

Person's appearance may not only indicate the apparent deficiencies of the body but also tell us about the predisposition to a disease. It is not for nothing that the people say: "everything is written on a face".

Face - the speaking part of our body. There are nerve endings that receive information about the state of internal organs through the blood and the autonomous nervous system. The facial skin has the greatest number of sebaceous glands. It responds instantly to changes in the body.

Suppose there is a problem in the colon, kidneys and lungs - the skin takes on an additional function of secretion of the products of metabolism. If a person has acquired a grayish hue or become pimply this indicates a disruption of the metabolic processes.

Cosmetics, while partially or completely solving the problem of changes in appearance, can not affect the psychological problem of internal discontent within a person. It is rarely possible to cure dry skin with moisturizers, to suppress excessive sweating with antiperspirants or to cure acne.

The idea of homeopathic treatment lies in the joint regulation of the functions of internal organs and "cosmetic problems", along with the resolution of psychological disorders consistently leading to improvements of a person's appearance.

When the organism is correctly treated from the inside, a healthy skin tone appears and dryness and/or excessive sweating disappear. Homeopathy believes that skin rashes should not be suppressed - it is dangerous to health.

Any skin rash is an attempt by the body to minimize the problems of the vital organs. The skin takes on a drainage function, because the natural drainage - the liver, kidneys, intestines do not. And if skin drainage is closed then the disease will go deeper into the body.

This can be seen in children with diathesis. If an ointment is applied to rashes, the skin becomes clean, but the child gets sick with asthmatic bronchitis. What is better for the body? As a specialist in homeopathic treatment I draw attention to the signals sent by the internal organs of the patient. Such signs (bruises under his eyes, unhealthy complexion) are not esthetically pleasing, but are very valuable: they can smell a rat at the early stages of a disease development and help to determine imbalance of one or the other substance in a body.

In the treatment of any, even severe diseases, the condition of the skin, hair, nails, face and eyes, the manner of human behavior are important guides for a homeopath in choosing a homeopathic remedy.

Homeopathy treats dry and oily skin with equal efficiency, thanks to a normalizing effect on the function of the sebaceous glands. With the help of homeopathy one can improve the protective function of the skin, to overcome the tendency to suppuration, to restore the skin's sensitivity and to decrease its irritation and itching.

Homeopathy can help to restore the beauty of the skin. Thanks to reduced swelling and improved elasticity of the skin wrinkles are reduced and even disappear altogether. Acne and skin rash in women associated with the hormonal cycle also respond well to homeopathic treatment.

Good results were noted in the treatment by homeopathic treatments of excessive hair loss, premature graying, changes in the structure and appearance of hair and nails, which is particularly important during the period of hormonal modifications in women (after childbirth, during breast-feeding, in menopause).

Homeopathic remedies are selected individually for each patient, for example, to activate the metabolic processes in the skin and to slow the aging process, to normalize the sebaceous glands.

Homeopathy can be used for gross keloids, warts, papillomas and as an alternative and and/or supplement to a surgical treatment. The presence of old keloid scars in itself is a tip for a homeopath in finding the homeopathic remedy.

We can assume that if the keloids are on the outside, the spikes are inside. These are different links in a single process. If during a childhood a person had strabismus and hernia, and during adulthood problems with hair, nails, joints and spine, you can expect rapid formation of wrinkles. The problem is on the inside and its name is the weakness of connective tissue.

In order to be beautiful and to look no older than your years (and for many - it is desirable to look even younger) do not forget about one of the safest ways to achieve this goal - homeopathy.

However, you should not begin with the acquisition of finished pharmaceutical products targeted at some "common individual" and containing many substances but rather with a consultation with a homeopath to analyze you problems and to receive individualized treatment according to homeopathic rules.

Author's Bio: 

POWER+ remedies are developed with care by Hilda Spektor (ND) to offer a complete solution for holistic health and wellness.

As a Doctor of Naturopathy, I believe that optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness to one of achieving wellness. Achieving wellness requires balancing of the various controllable aspects of the whole person. These aspects are physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The broader holistic approach to health involves the integration of all of these aspects and is an ongoing process.

I try to analyze each individual's health, behavioral and attitudinal profile to help achieve optimal wellness by referring each client to scientific, historical and anecdotal healing principles.

I'm performing wellness consultations regarding diet, homeopathy, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, exercise; mind/body imbalances, alternative healing and can refer to other healthcare professionals when appropriate.

The original meaning of the word "doctor" is teacher. A principle objective of naturopathic medicine is to educate the patient and emphasize self-responsibility for health.
