Now that we have talked about tea specifically as a known treatment for black eyes, what type of tea is going to do the most healing?  That is what I have been asking myself and it is sage.  Sage tea compresses are actually fantastic for you to put onto any black eyes as this particular herb has been known to treat not just black eyes but bruises in general.

Just brew yourself a pot of sage tea, make sure that you stick a cloth in there – let it cool down and lay it over your eyes for an hour.  In an hour’s time, you will be able to see a remarkable difference in your bruises and black eye – I know that I did!

If you want a cure, sage is definitely a cure for black eyes if you repeat this process everyday until it is gone!

tea-bags

All right guys, so I am going to share something personal with you … I fell down the stairs this past weekend.  Sunday, I took a tumble down on top of a bunch of laundry and I definitely bruised not just my hand, thigh, calf and head but I bruised my eye.  When I woke up this morning, I have a black eye.

So – that lead me to these next few posts.  What does cure a black eye naturally or at least what helps speed up the process?  That is what the next couple blogs are for and that is what we are going to talk about.  One of the first things that helps are tea compresses – honestly, place a teabag on your black eye and in no time at all, it should go down.

In the next blog, we will talk about what specific teas will help you with your black eye (and thank god for that!) … stay tuned!

homeopathyNow that we have touched on what homeopathy is and what you can expect from it, let’s go ahead and touch on some of the principles that homeopathy needs to follow.  One of the first things that you need to remember about homeopathy is the first is like cures like – for example, if your symptoms are arthritis, they are the same as poisoning to mercury and mercury is your homeopathic remedy.

The second principle that you need to remember is that the remedy is to be taken in a much diluted form – and the minimal dose.  You never want to OD when you are dealing with homeopathy.  Finally, the third principle is single remedy.

You have to take only one remedy for any number of symptoms and the remedy will actually work for all of those symptoms.

December 26th, 2009

massage 1So now that you know a little bit about Swedish massage, let’s go ahead and tap into exactly what the difference in between this particular massage and a regular massage.  This particular massage is actually very deeper and the stroking movements that are involved in this particular massage are designed to warm the skin up.

What warming the skin up does is relax all of the muscles under the skin and make sure that you are truly relaxing in every possible way.  Your muscles, especially when you are stressed out can lock up – with Swedish massage, it will relax you fully.

Personally, I love Swedish massage and I think that if you have never had one – you should definitely get one now.

Skin Tags, Deal With Them Naturally: 2

duct-tape-rolls

Now that we have talked about one of the ways that you can get rid of pesky skin tags, let’s go ahead and dive right into another one.  To be perfectly honest, skin tags are nothing that you really need to worry about – they are however something that you should get rid of.

One great way that I found is duct tape.  Duct tape is something that I have found that not only works great but it is pretty painless.  All you do is apply the duct tape over the skin tag … let it sit and you will see just how easy it comes off!

Skin tags are unsightly and not something that you really want to deal with – however you do not have to have any chemicals to get them off.
