Creating Waves of Awareness

Freckles are flat, irregular spots that develop randomly on the skin,
particularly on the cheeks. They vary in color but are always darker than
the normal skin around them. They are more prominent in persons of fair
complexion.
Causes of development
There are many different causes of freckles but one main cause is repeated
and prolonged exposure to sunlight. The exposure increases the production
of pigment melanin that gets deposited in certain areas of the skin making
them look darker but this does not happen to everyone because every person
is not equally sensitive to sunlight. Generally, persons with fair
complexion are more sensitive to sunlight than dark-skinned persons but
this does not mean that all fair-skinned persons are very sensitive or all
dark-skinned persons are completely immune to the effects of sunlight.
Anyone can develop freckles depending on personal sensitivity whatever be
the complexion. Nutritional imbalance and genetic factors may also cause
uneven distribution of pigment melanin resulting in freckles.

Risk factors
Freckles have a great cosmetic value particularly when they are on the
cheeks otherwise they are harmless and pose no danger to general health.
At times, however, they might be mistaken for another skin disease.
Therefore, one should have them checked and evaluated by the dermatologist
to be sure of what the spots are.
Prevention
Freckles are a fair indication of sensitivity of skin to sunburn and other
skin diseases of more serious nature. Those with hereditary tendency
should avoid prolonged and/or repeated exposure to direct sunrays. For
those whose nature of job does not permit this precaution should use
protective sunscreens to reduce the risk.
Treatment
There are plenty of products available in the market for external use,
which can reduce the pigmentation and lighten or even eliminate the
freckles.
There are products that can hide them temporarily but hiding the
freckles is not the answer. They must be treated properly.
Freckles can also be effectively and conveniently treated by internal use
of homeopathic medicines. This is one of those conditions that can be
easily treated in a few weeks.
Some of the commonly used homeopathic
medicines to treat freckles are graphite, kali-carb, lycopodium,
muric-acid, natrum-carb, phosphorus, sepia, sulphur etc.
but you must
consult your homeopath to choose correct medicine, its dose and potency
for you.

Interesting, would you think that its always good to check the liver and then CHELIDONIAN in a small dose for a few days could help? You need to consider if the patient is complaining of fatigue...
