Homeopathic Sulphur And Its Useful Sequences

Natural Remedies

Homeopathic Sulphur is regarded as the greatest of Hahnemann’s anit-psoric remedies.

Sulphur has the power to draw out toxins and bring them to the surface, thus enabling them to be expelled from the body easily.  It is a powerful antiseptic tool for the homeopath.

Sulphur is very often given when other well-chosen remedies have failed to act.  Sulphur can unblock resistances to pave the way for other remedies to work better.

Sulphur is often effective in bringing up deep-seated health problems.  Skin afflictions are usually a sign of organ imbalance, and poor elimination.  If only the skin is seen as the problem, and cured by medications, and perhaps antibiotics, then the real underlying cause, which is not being treated with the skin remedy,  becomes more deep-rooted within.  Often, lung diseases and other internal problems arise, or worsen, when the skin has been healed in this way.

Sulphur can bring these old complaints out so that they may be treated with appropriate remedies.

Then a healing of the whole system can occur.

Symptoms of a Patient Needing Sulphur: The Sulphur patient usually displays several of these symptoms:  Feels worse for prolonged standing. Burning soles of the feet or palms of hands, and hates feet to be covered up with blankets in bed. Worse for warmth of bed. Better for warm, dry weather, worse for cold and damp, and better, generally, for movement.

Aggravated by wearing too much clothing which increases heat. Often a dislike of water and/or of bathing. Skin is dry and itchy, with often a redness about the nose or mouth or eyes.  Burning eyes. Piles or itchy anus. Constipation. Alcohol worsens symptoms. Often needing catnaps or 40 winks. Lethargic.

Patient often wakes around 3 AM.  Usually a sinking, hungry feeling around 11 AM each day.  Symptoms feel worse at 11AM in morning, and 11PM at night  Feeling of suffocation or burning sensation in the chest, worse for lying down on the back.  Relief sometimes gained by lying on the right side with legs drawn up to the chest.

Aloe and Psorinum complement Sulphur.  Can be used alternately or together. T.S. Iyer suggests these three to help treat metallic poisoning, such as lead or mercury.

Sulphur is compatible with Calcarea, Lycopodium, Pulsatilla, Sarsaparilla, Sepia.

Useful sequences recommended by Iyer, to be taken in the order listed, are:

Sulphur, Calcarea, Lycopodium OR

Sulphur, Sarsaparilla, Sepia

Sulphur is the chronic of Aconite, and can be used to good effect after Aconite.  Iyer recommends this sequence for some cases of pneumonia and other acute  disease.

Iyer suggests not using Sulphur after Mercurius or Calcarea.  Use the Sulphur first.

He says Mercurius and Calcarea are often useful remedies to use AFTER Sulphur has been given.

Home Made Anti Wrinkle Face Cream Recipe

Natural Remedy To Help Prevent Wrinkles and Nourish the Skin:

Here is a lovely face cream which you can make yourself.  It is free of harmful chemicals and honestly rich in vitamin E and other beneficial nutrients which will help reduce those wrinkles on the face.  Very good for the neck and hands too.

This is a standard formula for making cold creams.  You can use the oils of your choice, and, for example,  replace safflower oil for the avocado oil if you wish.  But try to obtain the extra good nourishing oils such as avocado, almond and/or apricot kernel oil if you can.

Apricot and almond kernels, or peach kernels, contain a lot of antioxidant Vitamin B17, known as laetrile, which has been found to be of great benefit in healing degenerative diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, and other conditions. Including oils extracted from any of these fruit kernels will also be highly beneficial for helping to heal and maintain lovely skin.

Avocado oil contains good amounts of the anti-oxidant vitamins A, B, D and E.  These are essential for helping to grow healthy skin tissue.  Avocado oil is a fantastic skin treatment, as the oil medium lubricates the skin and distributes the vitamins evenly over the skin tissue at the same time.

Witchhazel is an age-old skin cosmetic.  It is well-known for its skin-whitening effects and ability to remove blemishes on the face.

Witchhazel water is made from the Hamamelis virginica tree, which is a beautiful yellow-flowered, sweet-smelling tree. As a lotion, it is strongly astringent and has antiseptic properties which make it useful for treating cuts and bruises, bites and stings, piles and things such as bleeding gums.

Recipe For Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream:

In a couble boiler put:

10 grammes of either almond or apricot kernel oil.

20 grammes of avocado or safflower oil

one and a half teaspoons of lanolin (the organic kind which comes from sheep’s wool)

5 grammes of pure beeswax

Heat all up gently until temperature reaches 60C and the beeswax is melted.

In another, smaller, saucepan, gently heat up 35mls of either rosewater or witchhazel water. When the temperature of the chosen water has reached 60C, same as the oils, take both off the heat and gradually beat in the rosewater or witchhazel water into the oil mixture.

Keep beating until mixture is smooth and creamy.

Finally, add 5 drops of your favourite essential oil, and one small teaspoon of liquid honey.

Rose oil, or ylang ylang, or lavender, or patchouli, are what I would choose from.

Beat the honey and essential oil well in.

Then put into a clean, DRY storage jar with a good fitting lid.

Keep in the fridge if you can.  Otherwise, store in a cool, dark place.

Use up the cream within three or four months.  Because it does not have added preservatives, it will not keep as long as commercial face creams do.

The vitamin content, lanolin and beeswax, will all help to preserve your face cream for a while.

Vitamin E is a well known natural preservative.

Beeswax and honey have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and antibiotic properties – These qualities make them good for skin health as well as being a natural preservative for your cream.

Make sure you take the cream out with a clean, dry spoon or spatula each time.
