Skin diseases and cosmetic problems

SKIN DISEASES AND COSMETIC PROBLEMS

We are frequently faced with inflammatory disorders or allergies in conjunction with dermatological problems. An important property of polarized light is the ability to eliminate inflammation. This also plays an important role in cosmetic therapy, in the treatment of inflammatory processes such as acne, the elimination of postoperative (plastic surgery) scars, and also in the rejuvenation and hydration of the skin.

In the case of extensive lesions, it is recommended to treat the acupressure points of the skin found along the 9th to the 11th vertebrae of the spine.

 

Pimples, acne and acne scars

The blockage and inflammation of the sebaceous glands, a frequent problem during adolescence, may also develop in adults in response to hormonal changes, stress, and certain medications. It should not be neglected, because it can cause permanent scarring.

Treatment ■ treat the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes two or three times a day.

Color therapy ■ the color green is recommended for the affected area, yellow for the liver and the spleen, and orange for the kidneys.

Abscess

Polarized light therapy is recommended for the treatment of skin abscesses, pus-filled cavities in the dermal tissue that may also occur in the internal organs (kidneys, liver). Frequently accompanied by fever, it is important to begin treatment as soon as symptoms appear. A doctor should be consulted in all cases.

Treatment ■ treat the affected area for 10 minutes two or three times a day.

Color therapy ■ the color green is recommended due to its anti-inflammatory effects, while yellow should be used in the treatment of the liver and the spleen, and orange in the treatment of the kidney area, which is very helpful in boosting the immune system.

Allergy

The number of allergic diseases is steadily increasing, and not only because the symptoms are becoming more widely recognized. The causes of allergy are very complex, and the factors that play a role in its development include the increasing amount of artificial substances in the environment, as well as genetic, psychological, and immunological factors. It would be a mistake to simply blame environmental hazards, since modernization radically changed both our environment and our lifestyle. It has been known for a long time that left-handedness is often associated with allergies, that maternal smoking can cause allergies in the offspring, and that there is a much higher incidence of allergies among patients with anxiety and depression. All these observations suggest that the nervous system and psychological function are closely associated with the immune system, thus the indirect effects of modernization on the fetus and infant play a role in the development of allergic diseases – not to mention symptoms that emerge in adulthood, often due to acute stress.

The most frequent diseases caused by allergy are those of the airways and the mucous membranes (e.g. hay fever), the skin (e.g. urticaria, eczema), and the gastrointestinal system (e.g. diarrhea, bloating). The most frequent allergic diseases accompanied by skin lesions are listed below.

Eczema

Eczema is a recurrent skin disease occurring primarily at the extremities, though it may affect larger areas. In most cases the identification of its cause is very difficult, and it may be associated with external (such as textiles or laundry detergents) or internal (food) allergies. Its symptom is dry and itchy skin. You should contact a doctor, especially to explore the underlying cause.

Treatment ■ first, especially in the case of a large area, treat the acupressure points of the skin for 6 minutes each, or in the case of a smaller area use localized treatment for 10 minutes each.

Color therapy ■ general treatment that strengthens the immune system is always recommended, and the use of blue or yellow colored light for local treatments.

Insect bites

Insect bites can cause strong swelling even in milder cases, while in more serious cases the swelling might last for days and affect the entire extremity and the face as well. In some cases the insect bite may be followed by malaise, nausea, vomiting, generalized itching, shortness of breath, and in severe cases by loss of consciousness, laryngeal edema, arrhythmia, or even death (anaphylactic shock). Contact a doctor as soon as the symptoms arise. If there is local redness around a tick bite, followed by a concentric area devoid of the redness, surrounded by another concentric area of redness, contact a doctor, because these are the local symptoms of the infection that causes Lyme disease. However, this symptom may not appear in all individual infected by Lyme disease (approx. 40% do not show them), or

it can be hard to recognize because it covers a large area. Lyme disease can be detected with a blood test (in the tick too), and in its early stage it is very amenable to antibiotic treatment. However, later it can cause serious problems.

Treatment of simple insect bites ■ 10 minutes two or three times a day.

Color therapy ■ the color green, then orange is recommended.

Hives (urticaria)

This is a local allergic reaction. A small, itchy rash that does not rise above the skin surface, it is mostly caused by food or drug allergies or contact allergens

(such as chemicals), but can also be triggered by inhaled allergens (such as pollen). It is a very frequently seen allergic symptom. In rare cases, a chronic (longlasting, frequently recurring) form occurs, in which case a thorough medical check-up and long-term monitoring might be required to identify the triggers.

It is worth identifying and then eliminating the cause.

Treatment ■ 10 minutes 2 to 3 times a day.

Color therapy ■ the color green, then orange is recommended.

Warts

Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus, which as a viral infection is easy to catch. There are several types of warts.

Treatment ■ illuminate the surface of the wart for 10 minutes two or three times a day.

Color therapy ■ in order to strengthen the immune system, illuminate the liver and the spleen with yellow light.

 

Psoriasis

Smaller or larger scaly skin lesions; their cause is unknown in most cases. Possible causes include stress, pharmacological therapy, candidiasis or a weak immune system. If the affected surface is large, a protein-free or anti-Candida diet is recommended. A bath with sea salt is the recommended complementary treatment for joint problems associated with this disease.

Treatment ■ treat the affected area for 6 minutes twice a day.

Color therapy ■ yellow for the spleen and the liver, orange for the kidneys, and blue for the area of the skin lesions.

Hair problems ■ hair loss and dandruff

Hair loss can be a pathological or a natural process. If we lose more than one hundred strands of hair during combing, the loss is classified as pathological by dermatologists. Increased hair loss is a natural phenomenon during the spring. Hair loss can be triggered by many things: vitamin deficiency, low iron levels, hormonal disorders (after childbirth, during pregnancy, due to taking contraceptives, or thyroid dysfunction), localized inflammation somewhere in the body (for example an unhealthy tooth), and stress. Hairdressers recommend the following treatment: cutting the hair shorter so the follicles are under less stress, not wearing the hair in a tight style (bun or pony tail), and a circular massage during hair washing to improve circulation. Dandruff often also contributes to hair loss, and can indicate not only a dry scalp, but also a fungal or bacterial infection, or eczema. During the summer, excessive sweating should be avoided, and the roots should always be dried, which also helps avoid excessive sweat. Rinse your hair thoroughly during hair washing. Use a shampoo containing caffeine.

Treatment ■ illuminate the affected area or the entire hairy scalp for 10 minutes twice a day.

Color therapy ■ the local use of the color orange is recommended, as is the use of a treatment that strengthens the immune system.

Cellulite

Cellulite is an unsightly skin disorder that is not found exclusively in overweight people. It is formed when waste materials deposited in the dermis of the skin bind water, leading to edema. Due to the accumulated water the fibrous structure is disrupted, giving skin an uneven appearance resembling orange peel.

It can appear at a very young age, and it is localized mostly to the buttocks, thighs, abdomen, and arms. It is found mostly in women due to hormones and a difference in the structure of the skin. The main weapons in the fight against cellulite are the stimulation of blood and lymphatic circulation, and supporting the elimination of waste materials through detoxification, massage, and the application of creams. Pay attention to increased fluid intake, a healthy diet, and regular exercise!

Treatment ■ illuminate each point for 6 minutes, then repeat after the application of the cream. Treatment twice a day is recommended.

Color therapy ■ use of the color orange is recommended on the affected area.

Pockmarks

The skin may retain a pitted appearance if scars are not resolved properly after the infection has passed.

Treatment ■ 10 minutes on the affected area, repeated twice a day.

Color therapy ■ the color orange is recommended.

Scars

If damage to the layers underlying the epidermis results in tissue loss, a scar forms during wound healing. Inflammation associated with wound healing can also induce scar formation.

Treatment ■ illumination of the affected area, proceeding from point to point, is recommended, using 6 minutes sessions at each stop, repeated 2 to 3 times a day.

Color therapy ■ for a few days the use of green, then orange light is recommended.

Wrinkles

Regular use of a polarized light lamp is especially recommended for wrinkles.

Treatment ■ illumination lasting 6 to 8 minutes is recommended, then apply the appropriate cream after the treatment.

Color therapy ■ orange light should be used.

Fungal infections of the nails and skin

Requires several months of treatment and in many cases medical care and the use of a cream or anti-fungal ointment is unavoidable. Avoid wearing socks made from synthetic materials, and daily disinfection of shoes is recommended.

Treatment ■ treat the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes twice a day; in the case of children, treatment of the thymus is also recommended.

Color therapy ■ use green light on the area affected by fungal infection, and orange light to treat the liver and the spleen in order to strengthen the immune system.

Gum diseases

Gingivitis

A bacterial infection of the gums. Symptoms may include: swollen, red, sensitive, bleeding gums, and bad breath.

Periodontitis

One of the stages of periodontitis is detectable in seventy percent of people at present. After the initial superficial gingivitis (primary symptoms are swollen and reddened gums), periodontitis proceeds to deeper layers, and causes the progressive loss of the periodontium (the fibers of the ligament system between the root and the alveolar bone) as well as that of the alveolar bone. This is a hidden, insidious process that occurs under the gums, and results in the sudden loosening of the tooth. Frequently the retraction of the gum is minimal, so the associated pain is not due to the atrophy of the gum, but of the bone. Due to the frequent bleeding of the gums, incipient periodontitis can be recognized at an early stage – healthy gums do not bleed even during dental cleaning. Bad breath is an unambiguous sign of incipient periodontitis, therefore if you experience these symptoms, it is best to schedule a dental check-up as soon as possible. The check-up will uncover the degree of periodontitis, and appropriate treatment can be started. A panoramic X-ray shows an unequivocal picture of the status of the alveolar bone, facilitating an immediate diagnosis of periodontitis and its level of progression.

Nobody should be deceived by the lack of pain, because much of the course of periodontitis is painless. Chronic localized inflammation can cause joint pain, dermatological problems, hair loss, and other diseases elsewhere in the body.

Treatment ■ treatment of the affected area is recommended for 6 to 10 minutes twice a day, with the mouth open or closed.

Color therapy ■ the use of the color green is recommended.
