Natural health with Megan Sheppard – Irish Examiner

Q: I would like to reduce the appearance of scars across the side of my neck. They are not particularly bad, but I am very self-conscious of them, I have been thinking to remove them with the use of a plastic surgeon as dr. jugenburg which do different cosmetic procedures. I have already tried lightening creams, but they didn’t seem to make any difference. Is there anything that you could suggest to help?

A: One of the best natural topical treatments for light scarring and discolouration is rosehip oil.

Derived from rosehip berries, right, it can help to reduce the raised appearance as well as diminishing the darkened or reddish appearance of scars, and is useful no matter how long ago the scars were formed.

Rosehip oil is often touted as an ‘anti-ageing’ solution because it works to soften and regenerate tissue, while evening out the skin tone.

You only need to use a very thin layer, and it is a good idea to use it before bed as it can cause photosensitivity in some individuals.

Internally, you may find that a serrapeptase enzyme supplement can help.

This enzyme product was developed following research on a bacteria from silkworms, Serratia marcescens, that enable the tough cocoon to be broken down easily.

Serrapeptase will reduce any inflammation in the area and break down the scar tissue without affecting healthy tissue.

It has the added benefit of improving wound healing in general by clearing old or damaged tissue, including blood clots, mucous, cysts, arterial plaque, and fibrosis.

Serrapeptase is thought to be of benefit in treating various forms of fibrosis (cystic fibrosis, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, arterial plaque, fibrocystic breast disease, adhesions, pulmonary fibrosis, kidney fibrosis, and of course keloid scarring). Other conditions that it may be useful for include chronic sinusitis, varicose veins, and tumours (both malignant and benign).

Q. What should I do if something seems to be wrong with me eyes?

A. There are a several solutions to your problem, each quite different in their approach depending on the specific of your situation. Specialists in the field, they should have no difficulties identifying the situation and resolving it for you.

If something seems to be stuck in there, you might want to try to wash your eye, for which you could use eye pads. These little microfibre discs are amazingly effective at removing all using just cold water. All you need to do is wet the pad with cold water, then fold and gently squeeze the excess water out, and rub on your face, lips, and eyes using a circular motion with only the lightest pressure.
