Ringworm and Jock Itch

A common question people often ask is if ringworm and jock itch are related.
The answer is that yes they are, ringworm, jock itch and athletes foot are all common human skin fungi, and they multiply in conditions of warmth, humidity, darkness and lack of oxygen.

This is why athelete's foot and jock itch in particular are so common, because all of these conditions are present.

Skin fungi is also easily contracted from places like pools, gyms, locker rooms etc, and easily spread to other people.

However it can easily be treated naturally with New Zealand manuka oil, soap and cream in a convenient ringworm treatment pack

Manuka honey for Acne

Recently reports have highlighted an increase in interest in Manuka honey to treat Acne.

We have had a lot of success with our Acne treatment pack which contains Manuka essential oil, a special cream containing high quality Manuka UMF honey and Manuka soap.
These products can be used daily with the oil to treat individual spots and the honey cream to apply thinly all over the face. The Manuka soap is an excellent gentle soap which is naturally antibacterial so this also helps to reduce the acne bacteria.

We recently had an email from a UK customer who ordered pure Manuka UMF honey. She told us that her daughter had suffered chronic acne and that all other treatments she had tried had not been successful.

She said that she had applied the pure honey to her daughters face at night and said that the results were truly remarkable in reducing the acne so effectively.
We think that using pure honey would leave a sticky residue, (although a lot would also be absorbed into the skin), the reason we developed the cream containing Manuka honey which is not sticky.

Bee Venom Mask and Moisturizer

The Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Catherine owes her dazzling smile to pioneering dental work and her flawless complexion to New Zealand Manuka honey producers, says the UK media.

Further revelations suggest that Princess Catherine reportedly undergoes regular bee sting facials on the recommendation of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Commonly referred to as Beetox cream, the organic alternative to Botox, the bee venom mask contains about one per cent venom and reportedly tricks the skin into thinking it has been stung, thus increasing blood flow, collagen and elasticity.
Bee venom is formulated with New Zealand Manuka honey, shea butter, essential oils and easyliance a blend of Acacia Senegal gum and Rhizobian gum (formerly a secret ingredient), plus other natural and proven complexion enhancing ingredients.
Fans of the mask include Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Both Catherine and Camilla are believed to undergo beauty treatments using the mask when therapists make discreet royal visits, although a Clarence House spokesman said: "I wouldn't comment on such a matter".
We are able to report that the interest in these products has led to a surprising number of internet orders from addresses in Hollywood and across USA, UK and Europe as well as Australia and more affluent parts of Asia.
There are now three different bee venom products listed at Manuka Natural, a bee venom mask, bee venom moisturizer and Beetox cream which can be used as both a moisturizer and when applied more generously as a mask.

Bee Venom Mask

More people, including celebrity Victoria Beckham, are reported to be turning to bee venom masks and bee venom moisturisers as a natural alternative to Botox.

One of the major drawbacks from using Botox apart from the pain associated with the injections and the very high cost is the so-called "frozen face look" which impairs natural facial expression. The frozen face look reportedly makes long term botox users look untrustworthy and not reflective of normal body language according to a report in showbizspy.com

Bee venom masks and moisturizers give the skin a natural healthy glow preserving and enhancing natural facial expression.

A new product worthy of mention is Beetox; a natural product which includes Active Manuka Honey UMF 12+ with bee venom, Avocado oil, Tocopheral oil, Easyliance (Acacia Senegal gum and hydrolyxed Rhizobian gum), Apricot kernal oil, Collagen extract, Rose Hip oil, Rose water, Beeswax, Evening Primrose oil, preservative (Optiphen) Marshmellow extract, Natural fragrance and Cocoa butter.
This natural bee venom cream can be used as both a mask and as a moisturiser simply by applying more or less as the user desires. Beetox cream can be applied generously as a bee venom mask and removed after 20-30 minutes for nigh application, or it can be applied lightly as a moisturiser under normal makeup for daily use.

Ringworm and Scabies reported at Occupy Camp

NEWS:
"Santa Cruz Police even heard rumors about infectious diseases like ringworm, scabies, and tuberculosis going around the campsite"

Ringworm and scabies infections and infestations are quite possible where people are living closely in substandard conditions and sharing personal  hygiene equipment.

It is very important not to share towels, toiletries, hairbrushes etc. in campsite conditions like these. Many of the protestors are likely to have come from poor locations where sanitary conditions are sub-standard contributing to the risk of cross-infection of Scabies and Ringworm.

To prevent the spread of these diseases and parasites it is important to take preventative steps by applying a repellant or protection product.

Natural protection can be provided for both ringworm and scabies by applying a quality cream containing manuka and or tea tree essential oils.
These products will protect the skin from parasites and fungal infection with a simple daily application.

Applied lightly the Beetox cream can be used as a moisturizer during the day or evening and can be applied under normal moisturizer or fountation makeup.

New Scabies Treatment Pack

We have just introduced a new Scabies Treatment pack to our store. Previously we provided Manuka soap, Manuka and Tea Tree oil, Manuka and Tea Tree cream and Pure Manuka oil in a comprehensive natural Scabies treatment pack.

The inclusion of the pure Manuka oil is to treat clothing, sheets and towels in the wash, however this product will not be necessary if people are able to wash these items in a hot wash and follow the hot wash with 30 minutes in a clothes drier on hot setting.

By eliminating the pure Manuka oil from the Natural Scabies Treatment Advanced product pack allows us to reduce the price considerably and to make these effective products more affordable for families treating scabies infestations.

It has become apparent from news items that the incidence of scabies infestation is growing largely due to increased levels of drug resistant scabies.

Scientists in Australia have discovered that the natural Manuka and Tea Tree products contained in our Natural Scabies Treatment are an effective alternative to over the counter scabies treatments.

Manuka and Kiwifruit honey

Another exciting addition to our New Zealand honey range is Manuka and Kiwifruit honey.

This new honey has a fantastic taste of New Zealand Kiwifruit in combination with Manuka honey.

To produce this Manuka and Kiwifruit honey, Kiwifruit are freeze-dried, powdered and added to Organic Active 5+ Manuka honey at the rate of 5% dried Kiwifruit to 95% Manuka honey.

There are no additives, no preservatives, this is just dried Kiwifruit and Organically produced Active Manuka Honey.

This honey has to be tasted to be believed.

Effectively one whole Kiwifruit is added to each 250 gm of Manuka honey.

For internal health the benefits of the added Kiwifruit are important as Kiwifruit promote bowel health, so combined with the already acclaimed Manuka honey for intestinal health the addition Kiwifruit powder makes this a complete product.

Manuka honey UMF 18+

We have just released a new addition to our growing range of New Zealand honey.

The demand for Manuka honey UMF 20+  has outstripped supply and we will not be able to supply any more Manuka UMF 20+ honey until the new harvest season in January or February 2012.

However we have been able to get more of the Manuka honey UMF 18+ which is in stock now.

We are now able to supply Active Manuka honey, Manuka UMF 10+, Manuka UMF 15+ and Manuka UMF 18+
All of these New Zealand Manuka honey grades are completely natural and totally produced in New Zealand.

International shipping is free to most countries.

Royal Nectar Bee Venom Mask for Men

Great results are being achieved with our Royal Nectar Bee Venom Mask and Bee Venom Moisturizers.
One of the surprises is the number of men ordering these products where we had expected our clientele to be nearly all women we are finding that almost a third of sales are going to men.
Now these men might say that they are purchasing the Bee Venom mask and moisturizers for their wife or female partner, however we doubt it, we think that an increasing number of men are becoming concerned about their appearance and taking steps to protect and enhance their facial complexion.
Now it could also be that men are reluctant to take the steps of cosmetic surgery and/or Botox treatment, preferring to apply a little cream in the privacy of their bathroom.
This way no-one need know and they can keep their little secret about the bee venom creams while accepting admiring looks from their friends and colleagues.

Manuka honey and Kanuka honey

At the meeting held at the NZ Parliament's Beehive building, initial results were presented showing that medical-grade kanuka honey from the Bay of Plenty could be a useful treatment for acne and molluscum contagiosum. In the acne study, 82% reported an improvement within a week and 77% had a reduction in the number of acne lesions. Professor Holt said that he was not surprised by these results given that honey kills the bacteria which cause acne. He said that compared to popular acne treatments that contained bleach, honey was natural, safer, healed the wounds caused by acne spots, was likely to reduce scarring and moisturized the skin as opposed to drying it out. "The leading acne treatment sells around US$2 billion a year - we think that honey is a far superior treatment and plan to demonstrate this in a large independent clinical trial". The honey is applied as a facemask for 20-30 minutes twice a day, and washes off easily with warm water. - scoop.co.nz
For many years Manuka honey has been used in cream formulas for the treatment of Acne and it now appears that the related Kanuka honey can provide the same benefits for treating Acne and other bacterial and fungal skin infections.
The huge popularity of Manuka honey and the limited supply has led  to substantial increases in price over recent years especially for the higher grades of certified UMF activity. If Kanuka honey is able to demonstrate the same levels of antimicrobial activity as Manuka honey, it will also be in great demand for medical applications.

Medical uses of New Zealand honey

Medical researcher Professor Shaun Holt has announced what is believed to be the world's largest programme of research on the medical uses of honey.
Speaking at a meeting in Wellington yesterday, Professor Holt said that honey had huge potential to treat many medical conditions, but clinical trials were needed to prove that it worked. "We know that honey can heal wounds and kill just about any bug, so in theory it could be used to treat diseases ranging from eczema to skin infections to lung infections in people with cystic fibrosis". - scoop.co.nz
Manuka honey has a long history of medical use due to its antimicrobial properties, treating a wide range of skin and internal infections. Manuka honey is also a popular ingredient in natural cosmetics and moistirizers because of its moistire renention properties.
As reported Professor Holt will be using Kanuka honey for these trials, Kanuka is a close relative to the highly acclaimed Manuka species.

Bee Venom Mask

One of the things that separate us mere mortals from royalty and top celebrities is that they have a lot more money than us, so they are able to buy the most expensive clothes, shoes and handbags.
They are also able to stay in the most exclusive resorts and many travel in their own private jets as they travel around the world.
However in terms of flesh and blood they are just the same as us, and when it comes to skin care they have exactly the same needs and desires a we do, so while they can afford to go to the finest beauty salons, the products that they use are available to everyone.
The top cosmetics brands do not make special products for the rich and famous, the advertising might suggest that they are consulted but in reality they use the same products as us which are available over the counter from beauty counters around the world.
Which brings us to the latest anti-aging product which has been receiving so much attention in the news - Bee Venom Mask and Bee Venom Moisturizer.
We can supply both of these fantastic new products, so you can now have access to the same products as the rich and famous and your skin will benefit just as much as theirs.
The great thing about our Bee Venom mask and moisturizer is that they are both made in New Zealand using the freshest ingredients and we are receiving new stock every week, so what we stock has not been sitting on the shelf for long.
And you don't need to spend a fortune having a beautician in an expensive salon apply it for you either, you can apply these natural creams yourself just as well as any clinician.
So allow yourself the luxury of using the same bee venom mask and moisturizer cream as the celebrities and royalty, you will benefit just as much as anyone and more than some when you use these products. And they do work, so far every single customer has been delighted with the Bee Venom Mask and Bee Venom Moisturizer.

Bee Venom Mask in store now!

Great news we have finally received the Manuka honey Bee Venom Mask cream that we have anticipated for over two months!
This product is walking off the shelves and we had a huge response of people searching for it over the weekend after they had seen the bee venom mask featured on the TV show Dr. Oz in USA.

This natural cream is what has reportedly taken years off Camilla Parker-Bowles appearance and she was apparently the one who recommended it to Princess Catherine before her wedding. Certainly it has achieved huge popularity since then with many notable celebrities queuing up to buy it or have it applied for them in beauty salons around the world.

A report states that 1000 jars were sent to Dubai in just one order!

We now have the bee venom mask and a brand new bee venom moisturizer in stock today.
This product that women (and a surprising number of men) have been looking for for years, it has the effect of botox without either the high cost, the painful needles or the possible side effects, let alone surgery which can run to tens of thousands of dollars.

Bee Venom is a simple anti-aging solution that you can apply yourself at home and no-one need know that you are using it, just soak up the compliments!

Bee venom mask and moisturiser works by fooling the skin into thinking it has been stung when all you fell is a slight tingling sensation which stimulates the blood circulation and brings more collagen and elastin to the surfact of your skin, filling the wrinkles and fine lines.

It won't happen overnight as they say, but it will happen with regular application.

You can order your Bee Venom Mask or Moisturizer here right now.

Scabies treatment

Living in halls of residence forces students into close contact with roommates, even when they are sick. Without taking precautions, illness and infestations like head lice and scabies can spread quickly, especially in small apartments and residence halls.
The most common illnesses students should be wary of are the common cold, the flu, strep throat and mono, said Patricia Denning, chief of staff at Watkins Memorial Health Center.
Other illnesses students might be susceptible to include the stomach flu and parasites such as scabies and head lice. Denning advises students not to share clothing or hair brushes. Since the stomach flu is spread via contaminated surfaces, avoid sharing food, drinks and dishes.
To prevent the spread of illnesses it is a good idea to arrange the beds so that students are not sleeping head to head, it is much better to sleep foot to foot if possible. This way sneezes carrying bacteria are less likely to be transmitted from person to person.

Scabies and head lice are usually contracted through very close contact as they do not live off the body for long.

However if you are unfortunate to get scabies it is important to take action quickly to avoid spreading this infestation to others.
The tell tale signs of Scabies are intense itching most commonly at night, and a rash with very fine lines. These fine lines are the tunnels that the adult scabies mites make just below the skin.
It is not necessary to use chemical treatments for scabies as there are very effective natural scabies treatments that do not carry the side effects of chemicals

Excersize for arthritis

Approximately 46 million Americans have arthritis, which becomes more common as people age, according to the Arthritis Foundation. Osteoarthritis is the most frequent type, followed by rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation of the membrane lining the joint.

Excersize can help to alleviate the inflammation and pain of arthritis, it is recommended that arthritis sufferers take 2.5 hours of moderate intensity low-impact excersize every week.

Swimming or cycling is ideal as there is no impact involved.

For natural relief from the pain of arthritis a supplement of velvet antler can be taken daily. Velvet Antler has been shown in studies to reduce inflammation and to stimulate the production of cartilage, reducing pain and supporting joint health.

Real people who have benefitted from Velvet Antler

Joy Beck's hands used to be so bad she couldn't knock on a door without severe pain. Now she could knock a door down.
Philip Berne could work on accounting ledgers in his sleep, but he couldn't do it without sleep. He's back on the job, well rested.
John Cleave's disconfort became the center of his universe. He couldn't turn over in bed or sit up without help. His knees were swollen. He couldn't feed himself becasue he could't raise his arms. All that is in the past.
Corrine Smith said the places it hurt were beyond counting. After a five-year reign of torment, it took Corrine only one month to shed her disability.
When Millie McMann sat still fow awhile, her first steps were anguish. Today she has complete pain-free range of motion, even after day-long sessions at her computer.
Mary Bartlett felt that her biological clock was breaking the sound barrier. But how could she plan to lift a baby when she couldn't lift a book? She's doing just fine now, thank you, with a twin in each arm.
We know it is unlikely that any single nutrient could be responsible for such turnabout results. In fact, almost all these people reported a longtime involvement in taking a handful of isolated nutrients.
So what did they do to increase their energy, reduce their aching, restore their mobility, diminish their swelling?
Joy, Philip, John, Corrine, Millie, and Mary are using age-old velvet antler. You already know that velvet antler contains anti-inflammatory factors, plus many other critical agents beneficial for curtailing a body's response to arthritis.

Velvet Antler - new hope for Arthritis sufferers

Velvet Antler could be the most significant breakthrough for arthritis sufferers in the world today.

In China, Korea, Japan and Russia, velvet antler has reportedly been used to prevent, heal and relieve ailments and injuries.  
Today, a vast body of research conducted in those countries is now revealing an impressive array of reported abilities of velvet antler to reduce inflammation, influence body metabolism, support immune function, protect damaged tissues and affect blood, liver and kidney function and more.
 In fact, laboratory analyses now show that velvet antler contains an amazingly comprehensive nutritional profile including collagen, amino acids, essential fatty acids, minerals, trace minerals, and other functional proteins, all vital components for human metabolic function.

Arthritis information from Dr. Betty Kaman

Millions of Americans are physically derailed by arthritis, America's No 1 crippling disease. According to the Arthritis National Research Foundation, arthritis:
  • is progressive
  • erodes the physical endurance and pain tolerance of its sufferers
  • claims a new victim every thirty-three seconds
Imagine! Every thirty-three seconds!
Even more tragic, juvenile arthritis affects an estimated 285,000 children in the United States. For many, it begins when they are very young and follows them like a bad dream into adulthood.
In 2020, an estimated 18.2 percent of the population will suffer from arthritis, up 15 percent since 1995, as reported in Arthritis and Rheumatism. And if you thinkl arthritis is a disease of the elderly, you are mistaken. More than half of arthritis patients are under 65. Like so many other degenerative diseases of our time, the affliction is taking hold at earlier and earlier ages.

Benefits of Velvet Antler

Dr. Betty Kamen Addresses Arthritis and Velvet Antler
When I lecture and list the benefits of velvet, two areas elicit great enthusiam from my audiences. The first is its anti-aging properties. The second is arthritis relief, perhaps each for the very same reason:
"Other evils can mend, but age and arthritis get worse every day."
In 1999, the chondrotin sulfate and collagen type II in velvet antler were scientifically substaniated by research and clinical studies, in compliance with FDA regulations "to support healthy joint structure and function."
This means that velvet antler has received the green light to be marketed as a dietary supplement for the nutritional support of the very body parts that malfunction in the presence of arthritis: your joints.
Velvet Antler tablets are made in New Zealand and shipped world-wide.

How scabies are caught

Scabies is a very contagious skin disease caused by infestation with a type of microscopic mite called Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis. The parasite mites responsible for causing scabies can be easily contracted by entering in contact with infested persons. Scabies can also be acquired indirectly, by entering in contact with contaminated objects. Although scabies mites can live for a few days without a human host, recent studies have revealed that scabies is rarely acquired indirectly.
Once they find a human host, scabies mites quickly populate the skin, hiding in less exposed regions of the body. Female mites usually lay their eggs under the fingernails, in the skin folds between the toes or fingers, in the pubic region, in the areas of the buttocks or the upper back, in armpits and the region of the elbows. The first symptoms generated by scabies are skin inflammation, itch and rash. In later stages of the mite infestation, people can also develop skin ulcerations, lesions, blisters, pustules, crust and painful nodules. Most of the symptoms caused by scabies occur due to allergic reactions to the mites - healthskep.com
Treatment can be by several means, however scabies have become increasingly resistant to chemical treatments "Reported Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies) treatment failures with lindane, crotamiton, and benzyl benzoate, as well as likely emerging resistance to 5% permethrin and oral ivermectin, are of concern and advocate for the identification and development of novel acaricidal drugs"

A highly successful and natural scabies treatment is with cream, oil and soap containing Manuka and tea tree oils. The scabies mites are yet to develop any recorded resistance to these natural essential oils and they also have no known side effects.

A chronic skin disorder that results from inflammation of the skin resulting in the formation of skin rash. Eczema is formed mainly in children and infants and is rarely seen among adults. Also called dermatitis, eczema is not contagious. The various causes of eczema are allergies, varicose veins, cold and dry climate, nutritional deficiencies, etc. Symptoms include itching, redness, dryness and flaking of the skin. The most common areas affected are the hands, wrists, arms, neck, face, upper chest and back of knees. Eczema, however, can be cured naturally. Check out some home remedies to cure eczema.

Exposure to the sun is good for you

The rehabilitation of the benefits of sunshine continues apace. Ten years ago, there was no prolonged spell of good weather without Cassandra-like warnings about the hazards of ultraviolet radiation, responsible seemingly for an “epidemic” rise in skin cancer. Now, we learn, as reported in this paper last week, that three hours’ sun exposure a day reputedly slashes the risk of breast cancer by almost half – due, it is claimed, to stimulation of the production of vitamin D by the skin.
It is salutary to recall how, in the Twenties, the enormous enthusiasm for the health-giving properties of the sun led to the formation of The Sunlight League, dedicated to “teaching the nation that sunlight is nature’s natural disinfectant, a stimulant to the body and tonic to the mind”.
These were no idle claims, with Neils Finsen, a Danish physician, receiving the Nobel Prize for demonstrating the curative effect of sunlight on tuberculosis of the skin. It is also beneficial in treating eczema, psoriasis and rickets. - James Lefanu, telegraph.co.uk/health
So the answer is to get some sun, in moderation.
Sun will increase your vitamin D intake, and help to reduce the effects of eczema, psoriasis and rickets.
For more help the application of a natural product will help too. Manuka honey has been shown to make a significant contribution to relieving eczema and psoriasis.

We welcome your comments on this article.

Natural Remedy for Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp. under the nose or anywhere on face. People with seborrheic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. - medhelp.org/health
A natural remedy that has been highly successful contains Manuka UMF honey in a cream formulation.

Here is what one of our customers said :
The doctor diagnosed my red and oozing nose as an infection and gave me a prescription for an antibiotic, and told me it should be gone in a week. I decided to use your Manuka UMF Honey Cream instead, as I don't like to use antibiotics, and it has cleared up beautifully within a week. I use the cream for any cuts and itchy bits of skin I sometimes get and am amazed at how well it works and how far a small dab goes. A truly excellent product. - Julie de Burgh

Candida home remedies

The treatment of fungal infections Vaginal yeast infections and infections of the vulva are usually treated with antifungal medications that can be applied in or around the vagina or orally by mouth. The classic prescription of these infections include butoconazole, also known as Femstat 3, clotrimazole, also known as Lotrimin, Miconazole, also known as Monistat, and terconazole, also known as Terazol 3. The best way to manage these compounds is through the direct application of a pessary or cream to the affected area. Oral medications tend to have rather a lot of side effects. Over-the-counter treatments are a common choice that many women used to treat vaginal infections. Canesten cream is perhaps the best known fungal infection of the genital area.
Natural remedies for candidiasis: Candidiasis can be cured with a series of remedies, some of which are:
1. You can use aromatherapy to cure an infection caused by Candida. You can use tea tree essential oil or cinnamon bark to cure candidiasis. These oils usually work in the cell membrane of the infectious yeast cells and expose the cell contents to the harsh environmental conditions, making it difficult for organisms to survive.
2. You can use peppermint oil as an infusion to cure an infection caused by Candida.
3. You can also apply rosemary oil in the affected areas because of their anti-fungal properties.
4. Olive leaves have antimicrobial properties. Therefore, an extract of olive leaves can be applied in parts of the body affected by candida.
5. You can also apply Aloe Vera gel in the affected areas to relieve the symptoms of candidiasis.
6. You should eat raw garlic every day or use it in culinary preparations such as garlic has anti-fungal action. You can also apply the freshly extracted juice of garlic in the affected areas to treat candida infection. - 212articles.com
All of these natural treatments have their advocates, however possibly the best and most effective natural Candida remedy is the essential oil, cream and soap containing the New Zealand Manuka plant extracts.
This essential oil has been shown in scientific studies to be more effective and at lower concentrations than tea tree oil, Manuka oil also causes less sensitization to mucous membranes than tea tree oil.

Velvet antler arthritis treatment success


Velvet Antler contains the missing link to longevity, something just not present in all the promising nutrition programs I have ever worked with. Its growth factors are a significant part of what makes it special. Growth factors may be the only substances that can retard and even reverse aging. – Michael Rosenbaum MD - from the book “The Remarkable Healing Power of Velvet Antler” by Betty Kamen PhD
This book is essential reading for arthritis sufferers and available from Amazon: https://www.manukanatural.com/admin/index.php?ToDo=editProduct&productId=85 

How to treat persistent Athletes foot infection

I work on a construction site, so my feet are in steel-toed leather construction boots for about ten hours a day, five days a week. After a hard day's work, when I come home, my feet are hot, wet, sweaty, and itchy. I am pretty sure I have athlete's foot.
I have tried the usual creams they sell in the pharmacies for athlete's foot: Canesten, Tinactin, Micatin, etc. I hate squeezing those small tubes (like toothpaste tubes) and rubbing the cream over parts of my foot.
So far, these creams have not been a permanent solution.
And how do you know you've covered all the necessary area of your foot, so that the bacteria doesn't come back and re-infect your foot with the athlete's foot bacteria, or whatever it is?
So now I am wondering, are there any other treatments for athlete's foot? I think I'd like a solution I could just soak my whole foot in every evening. Is something like that available? That way, I think I'd cover my whole foot by soaking them in a bucket or something. And it would be a lot more comfortable than smearing cream on myself.
Firstly, athletes foot is a fungus, not a bacteria, however as the fungus infects the area, skin dead skin tissue will be broken down by bacteria and this is what causes the characteristic smell.

A simple and effective natural solution is essential oil, cream and soap containing NZ Manuka oil. These products have been proven in trials and have never failed to work on Athletes foot infections

Bee Sting beauty cream


How bee venom works to reduce your wrinkles and helps to make your skin look younger.

Honey bee venom is used cosmetically to 'fool' the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung with the toxin melittin, according to beautician Deborah Mitchell.

This causes the body to direct blood towards the area and stimulates the production of the naturally-occurring chemicals collagen and elastin 

Collagen strengthens body tissue while elastin is the protein that helps the skin to remain taut and bounce back into shape after being pressed or pinched. The venom also has the effect of relaxing the muscles, it is claimed. 

A toxin extracted from the venom, Apamin, has also been credited with alleviating conditions such as muscular dystrophy, depression and dementia.
Apamin speeds up brain activity by allowing potassium to flow out of the nerves more quickly, a study by the University of Bristol and the University of Liege in Belgium found earlier this month.
Our bee sting cream or bee venom mask will be available here soon and we are already taking orders for the first shipment

Keeping eczema prone skin moist

When dealing with eczema it is important to work moisturizing into your daily routine. You will need to moisturize your skin at least twice a day. Dry skin is naturally itchy and will cause your eczema to become irritated. Before using moisturizer check the ingredients and make sure there are no added chemicals or alcohol. Both of these will cause further irritation. Remember to stay hydrated as well. Try to drink close to eight glasses of water a day. This will keep your skin healthy and better prepared to fight off your eczema.
The rising up of eczema problem like itching can be reduced to a greater extent by altering the regular diet like including more fruits and vegetables and avoiding oil foods and fatty oils. Following a perfectly balanced diet with more salads and vegetables can bring in more water restoration in the skin making it soft and supple.- Articlesbase
Keeping your skin moisturized is one of the great benefits of Manuka honey in the Manuka honey cream Manuka honey is hygroscopic which means that it attracts moisture, keeping the skin soft and moist.
In addition Manuka honey has proven anti-microbial properties which will control any bacteria that could be present due to scratching the affected areas.

Avoid the sun when taking certain medications

Avoid the sun when taking certain medications. Some medications like antibiotics, water pills, acne creams or heart medication can increase your sensitivity to the sun. Ask your pharmacist if any of the medications you are taking can increase your risk to the harmful effects of UV rays.
Children are at higher risk for sunburns because they are less likely to protect themselves. Make sure your children apply sunblock before they head outside to play. If your child is less than 6 months old, use hats, sunglasses and shade to protect them. Sunblocks with "baby formulas" can be used on small areas of a baby's skin, such as the face and hands.

Scabies treatment

I was recently diagnosed with scabies. I have done two treatments of 5% Permethrin cream, 1 week between the two treatments. It took doctors 8 weeks before they finally determined I had scabies. As you can imagine, I was covered with spots by this time. I have spots EVERYWHERE on my body. The itching was so out of control that I scratched the spots but now I am left with a lot of scabed over red spots. I am trying to find something, anything that will heal the scabs and just make them go away faster. I have read that Bio-oil helps but I've been using it and it doesn't seem to be helping. Does anyone know of anything I can use to help speed up the process of healing these spots/scabs? I haven't left my house in weeks because of this and I'm becoming very depressed. I don't want to go near anyone because of the embarrisment of how I look. Please help.- Yahoo Answers
 We have a natural Scabies Treatment Pack which has been totally successful for everyone who has ordered it. Not only does this treatment eliminate the scabies mites and their eggs, it also stops bacteria from infecting the scratched areas, AND it will calm the itch which initiates the scratching.
Scabies treatment failures with Permethrin are common because scabies mites have now developed resistant strains to several chemical drugs including malathion and lindane.
We have had nothing but praise for the manuka and tea tree products in this pack.

This might trigger a rash and becomes sore. It may possibly appear as scalp ring worm, body ringworm, face ring worm or groin ringworm.
Any person is susceptible to this contagious fungus infection. Ring worm is effortlessly transmitted by getting direct skin-to-skin contact with infected men and women and pets. It might spread indirectly also by way of objects like towels, clothes, hairbrushes and individual items of persons infected with it. - somecare.com

Arthritis & Rheumatism

A recent study, published in Arthritis & Rheumatism, a journal issued by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), has revealed an unexpected correlation between smoking and arthroplasty (total joint replacement). Researchers have reported that people who never smoke seem to be at a higher risk of undergoing total joint replacement surgery compared to those who smoke. The study has also established a link between the physical state of a person and the risk of arthroplasty. Scientists have stated that people who are overweight or involved in intense physical activity are at a higher risk of undergoing total joint replacement surgery.
Previous studies have shown that in developed nations, total hip and knee replacement surgeries are among the most common elective surgeries performed.
Data from the 2007 National Hospital Discharge Survey shows that in America alone, an estimated 230,000 people had hip replacement surgery and 543,000 more, underwent knee replacements. The most commonly reported cause of arthroplasty was severe osteoarthritis (OA).
Quite a surprising study report, who would have expected that smoking could lessen the need for joint replacement.
The only conclusion I can draw from this is that those who smoke possibly excersize less, thus their joints don't get used as much!
Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Psoriasis and Eczema

The most prevalent autoimmune disease in the United States, psoriasis affects up to 7.5 million Americans and is thought to arise from a combination of genetic and environmental triggers, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation. Eczema, on the other hand, is thought to be an allergic response and often occurs simultaneously in those with asthma or food allergies, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. It is often outgrown by adulthood.
Psoriasis lesions in the study participants contained large numbers of so-called Th1 and Th17 cells, whereas eczema lesions had higher amounts of Th2 and Th22 cells. The researchers expanded their testing to include five patients with psoriasis and skin allergies to nickel -- a much more common combination that prompts an eczema-like reaction -- to confirm a similar T-cell response to psoriasis.
The study also found that all eczema lesions, but none in psoriasis, harbored Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, confirming that T-cells in psoriasis appear to prompt an innate immune response that's different from what is seen in eczema.
 Dr. Jerry Bagel, a spokesman for the National Psoriasis Foundation and associate clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University in New York City, said the research indicates that eczema and psoriasis "are clearly distinct entities, but there is some crossover immunologically." - usnews.com/health-news
 While there is no known cure for psoriasis, eczema can be treated successfully with a cream containing Manuka UMF honey this natural cream is able to control the Staphylococcus aureus bacteria which allows the eczema condition to heal naturally.
In addition to Manuka honey, this cream also contains natural extracts and oils reknowned for their skin calming properties which relieves the itching sensation and the desire to scratch the area, further enhancing the healing process.

Lavender health tonic

While lavender is clearly a fragrant scent, research supports its health-boosting benefits as well.
"There are lots of different medicinal uses for lavender," says Dr. Michael D. Seidman, medical director of Henry Ford Health System's Center for Integrative Medicine in Northville.
"There is definitive evidence that it reduces anxiety, depression and insomnia. It helps stimulate appetite and relieves gas and migraines. And it can help soreness from arthritis."
There are also limited studies on animals showing that a substance in lavender, perillyl alcohol, kills some cancer cells, Seidman says.
It has been proven safe in human trials, but there hasn't been enough research to prove its effectiveness in fighting cancer.
Seidman advises people buying lavender for medicinal purposes to seek high-quality products that haven't been blended with lots of other ingredients. He suggests buying from small stores where sellers tend to know their products - Cassandra Spratling Detroit Free Press

Lavender oil is also an excellent treatment for burns.
We add lavender essential oil to several of our healing creams and oils containing Manuka oil and Manuka honey.
Lavender is known to calm the skin and is a very valuable ingredient in natural formulations used to treat eczema and dermatitis.

What To Look For In Eczema Cream

There are a lot of creams that you can choose from. If you want to prevent those small flare ups in your skin then you should try using emollients. Emollients are creams that are much thicker and denser than ordinary creams which are very effective in adding up water and moisture on your skin because of its strong formulation. You can also go for baby eczema creams if you want a lighter treatment. You can also use body butter creams which are also dense and thick which can be a perfect alternative for emollients.
Despite the known effectiveness of mild steroidal eczema creams in treating major eczema flare ups in the skin. Its usage must be controlled because abusing it will only lead to some undesirable side effects. This type of cream will go well with other eczema creams and will intensify the effects but be sure to do some research or consult your doctor for proper usage instructions. - myeczematreatment.blog
The cream that we have had a huge amount of success with in treating and relieving the symptoms of eczema is Manuka UMF honey cream. This natural cream contains 30% Manuka honey UMF 15+ and as many of you will know Manuka honey has been proven in medical trials to halt the growth of a wide range of bacteria, this factor and the very strong moistirizing properties of Manuka honey make it an ideal ingredient in the treatment of eczema.
In addition to Manuka honey this cream also contains natural plant extracts which help to calm the skin and relieve the itching and desire to scratch the area. Other ingredients include calendula, chamomile, jojoba, macadamia oils. This is a wonderful product which has helped thousands of eczema sufferers around the world

Nuts and Yoghurt help weight loss

Harvard researchers published their findings June 23 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
What caught people’s attention was the fact that yogurt and nuts, not fruits and vegetables, were the two foods with the strongest relationship to weight loss. Let’s take a look at why that might be.
Dieting aside, yogurt has a lot going for it. It provides calcium and protein along with great flavor. With its creamy taste and higher protein content, Greek yogurt is my favorite.
Yogurt also contains probiotics, helpful bacteria that live in the colon and ease symptoms of antibiotic-associated diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and childhood eczema and can speed recovery from some intestinal infections.
Previous research has shown that there is a difference between the gut bacteria in lean and obese people, suggesting a cause-and-effect link. Yogurt has the right bacteria.
In the Harvard analysis, the greatest decrease in weight was associated with an increase in servings of nuts. The study did not distinguish by type, but all nuts are rich in fiber, phytonutrients, protein and antioxidants. Walnuts are especially high in omega 3 fatty acids, almonds are loaded with vitamin E and pistachios provide leutin and zeazanthin.
The protein and fiber in nuts increases feelings of satiety and delays gastric emptying — two actions that lead to eating less. This is not license to sit by the nut bowl and eat away. A 1-ounce serving of walnuts, which is about 14 halves, has 190 calories, 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber.
The key, as always, is portion control. Sprinkle walnuts on a salad, stir almonds into your oatmeal, coat tofu in pistachios or mix this trio of nuts into Greek yogurt. Go nuts — in moderation.

Treating scabies

Effective scabies treatment should be ready to eliminate the mites in only several days. If employed appropriately, the scabies treatment must be in a position to eliminate the eggs and larvae at the same time. Nevertheless, although the infestation is definitely eliminated, the symptoms of scabies could remain for as long as a few days. Though the mites and larvae are destroyed by the scabies treatment, their bodies also remain burrowed within the skin, causing even more inflammation and rash. The scabies treatment ought to as a result contain nearby medical creams to address the skin irritation.
Scabies remedies typically involve local ointments and creams. They must be applied on the whole skin surface, not just within the regions that seem to be infested. One of the most common medical creams utilised in scabies treatments today are Permethrin and Malathion - health-is-fun.com
 These two chemicals are probably the most common form of scabies treatment, however there are two things people should be aware of, one is that these products may cause side effects in some people, things like headaches, rashes, itching etc., the other important fact is that they may not be effect as scabies are becoming resistant to these synthetic compounds.
Far better to use a natural product that has no documented side effects and that scabies have no reported resistance to.
A natural scabies treatment formula containing NZ Manuka and Tea Tree oils, in oil, cream and soaps has had great success in treating this parasite.

Natural treatment for Plantar Warts

How are Plantar Warts Contracted?
Do you ever feel like you are walking with a rock in your shoe? Does it hurt when you put weight on one of your feet? Warts that grow on your feet and hands grow inward instead of outward. A plantar wart is flat, has tiny dots on the inside, and is light in complexion, One or more plantar warts can grow at a time. Many plantar warts do not cause irritation, but some are quite painful.

Plantar wartsare caused by a virus that enters through cuts or scratches on the skin. Viruses thrive in warm we places like licker rooms and pool areas. Wearing sandals when possible will lower the risk of contraction. Usually, plantar warts will go away on their own, If plantar warts are not too painful, the best treatment is to not do anything.

If discomfort from plantar warts becomes too unmanageable, there are treatments. Salicyllic acid on the skin surface has proven successful at removing the ugly and sometimes painful wart. The salicylic acid is available in pharmacies. Salicyllic acid works by dissolving the callus that has developed over the wart, exposing the virus, and destroying it.
During treatment, apply the acid over the wart at night, and rub the softened callus off in the morning. In the daytime, put a circle shaped Band-Aid over the affected area for protection. If you have a vascular disease or are a diabetic, do not use this acid. http://thelittleuglybottle.com/plantar-foot-warts.
Another excellent product for treating plantar warts is NZ East Cape Manuka oil. This natural essential oil is both antiviral which will get rid of the warts, it is also antifungal, (several times more effective than tea tree oil) and antibacterial.
A lot of people have fungus infections between the toes accompanied by a strong smell and Manuka oil will treat the fungus, often referred to as Athletes Foot, and also take care of the smell which is caused by bacteria breaking down the fungal infected skin tissue.
So you have one product that will treat plantar warts, athletes foot and the charastic smell all in one.

Start Arthritis treatment early

Starting treatment with a disease-modifying drug for inflammatory arthritis very early after symptom onset helped prevent structural damage to the joints, a French observational study showed. In an unadjusted analysis, structural changes visible on x-rays were not significantly different among patients initiating treatment within three months compared with those starting later (1.2 units versus 1.6 units, P=0.37), according to Cédric Lukas, MD, of Lapeyronie Hospital in Montpellier, and colleagues.
Once the joint has become damaged due to Arthritis it is more difficult to recommend treatment options, so we also recommend early treatment of Arthritis with a high quality natural supplement such as NZ Velvet antler tablets containing natural IGF-1, glucosamine and chondroitin, if you would like to know more about the benefits of velvet antler, visit www.manukanatural.com and download the free e-book 'Velvet Antler' by Alison Davidson

Natural Scabies Remedies

Maybe you’ve read somewhere that relying on incredibly toxic, medically prescribed medicines might be possibly detrimental to pregnant females and kids alike, and they’re also linked to severe conditions, such as nervous system illnesses and leukemia.So it’s not a shocker why you would like to opt for all-natural scabies remedies.
The very first safe scabies treatment would be to eat foods, such as garlic, which have anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic features and also boosts your immune system. Aside from this, it’s advised that you simply take vitamin and mineral supplements, such as Vitamin A, Zinc, Primrose Oil and Vitamin E.
Furthermore, it is possible to also rely on what is popularly called ‘wonder oil’, the tea tree oil, as a result of its antibacterial, restorative and antiseptic components. It is possible to avail of this by submerging your body in a bathtub partly filled with warm water and just about 20 drops of tea tree oil, and this may be completed up to twice every day for 20 minutes.
In addition, this scabies treatment could also center on seriously involved body areas by placing a soaked cotton wool pad that has 50% tea tree oil and 50% warm water. This successfully enters your skin to kill scabies parasites.
Last but not the least; it is crucial that you do not only kill scabies parasites in your body but also those that live on certain items like clothes, hairbrushes and soft toys. Bed linens and towels, for instance, must be repeatedly removed and washed, and they ought to be laundered in water with a hot temperature and then tumble-dried afterwards. - New Articles for You
 This is all good advice, however there is one qualification, some people are sensitive to Tea Tree oil in strong concentrations.

Athletes Foot treatment

Athletes Foot (Tinea pedis), Armpit Fungus (Tinea axillae), Jock Itch (Tinea Cruris), Breast Fungus (Tinea mammae), yeast infections (Candidiasis) and Buttock Fungus are some of the typical types of fungal infections.
The most common of these is Athletes foot; the fact that people are more prone to skin breakdown to the feet is a key reasons for this. Socks and shoes also trap moisture in and around the toes.
Armpit Fungus is often related to the use of perfumes and deodorants/anti-perspirants, which causes the area to become irritated. Scratching the area only makes the situation worse and may become an entry point for infections in the breaks in the skin.
Fungal infections in the groin area are common in men; therefore this type is often referred to as “jock itch”. Tight fitting underwear, sports protective gear and again the hot weather are all factors contributing to this particular type of fungal infection.- thepeninsulaqatar.com
Fungal skin infections like Athletes Foot are able to be cured with natural products containing Manuka essential oil from New Zealand.
Manuka oil in pure form or diluted and cream containing Manuka oil applied twice daily will treat Athletes foot and jock itch and occasional applications will prevent these fungal infections from reappearing.

Scabies caught from dogs?

Scabies can be identified by the physical appearance of pimple-like irritations in certain areas of the body. The severe itching at night is also significant in identifying scabies.
 
Scabies; sometimes referred to as itch mite; affects both young and old people from any social class across the world. Scabies infestations can be found in people regardless of their level of cleanliness and personal hygiene.
 
The mites that cause scabies are usually transferred by direct skin to skin contact. This may include sexual or non sexual contact. It is also possible to transfer scabies through contaminated clothes and beddings and also from objects. Scabies spreads quickly and easily in crowded places where many people come into contact with one another. Cramped unhygienic living conditions also encourage the contamination and spread of the scabies mite.
 
The scabies mite is present in dogs and is easily spread to humans through the close contact and constant handling of the pets. - healthmad.com
The last paragraph in this quote is not correct, scabies is not caught from dogs, they can carry scabies however it is a different species of scabies and they will not transfer successfully to humans.

The other indications of scabies infestation are correct and it is important to treat scabies before they spread to the rest of the family.
A very successful natural remedy for treating scabies is one made in NZ containing both tea tree oil and NZ Manuka oil. This unique combination of these two natural essential oils in oil blends, cream and soap can be purchased as a complete scabies treatment pack

Replace sugar with honey

ACT New Zealand warmly supports the proposal by Progressive Party Leader Jim Anderton to impose a levy on sugary soft drinks to help fund free dental care for all New Zealanders, says the Party’s Spokesman on Dodgy Beverages, Sir Roger Douglas.
“There’s no doubt the consumption of sugary soft drinks has reached crisis proportions. Mr Anderton is quite right in pointing to an epidemic of dental decay comparable to the Bubonic Plague.
“The incidence of obesity, diabetes, cancer, herpes and athlete’s foot is at an all-time high. The causal role of sugary soft drinks in these and all other diseases is incontrovertible. And I am a great believer in treating causes rather than symptoms,”Sir Roger enthuses.- Scoop Independent News NZ

Scientific evidence shows that sugar is a major contributor to poor health, obesity and tooth decay.
Sugar intake should be reduced and where a sweetener is used it should be in the form of honey.
New studies show that Manuka honey will reduce plaque and actually protect teeth from decay.
Manuka honey can be purchased in a range of antibacterial certification from Active Manuka honey right up to Manuka honey with a rating of UMF 20+

Breastfeeding reduces eczema

“There are lots of benefits to breastfeeding - not only is it a lovely way for you to be close to your baby but your milk also helps protect your child from infections.
“Breast milk can reduce the risk of your child getting allergic conditions such as eczema and asthma and reduce your risk of certain cancers and osteoporosis in later life.” - this is the westcountry news
There is no doubt that breastfeeding contributes to a healthy baby as breastmilk carries all the natural compounds required to enhance and develop a new babys immune system.
Once a baby has been weaned from breast milk they will carry the immunity for many years, if however they do develop eczema at a later stage, or do not have the good fortune to be fed breast milk, (Some mothers are not able to breast feed their babies for various reasons)
Then it may be necessary to find a solution for eczema in a young child.
One popular and natural solution is cream containing the wonderful New Zealand UMF Manuka honey. This Manuka honey has been receiving world-wide acclaim for a range of infections and skin problems and eczema is just one of them
Manuka honey comes in an eczema treatment pack which also includes Manuka soap and diluted manuka oil

Warnings on antibacterial chemicals

The current mania over putting anti-bacterial chemicals in everything from cleaning wipes and hand soap to detergent and toothpaste has resulted in the widespread contamination of the environment with two related toxins often found in these products -- triclocarban (TCC) and triclosan.
Never mind that in lab studies these chemicals have been found to disrupt hormones, probably cause cancer and spur the growth of drug-resistant superbugs. The FDA seems to think it's fine and dandy that humans keep pumping these substances into our bodies through contact with skin, and flushing these toxins down the drain into the water table.
At the recent national meeting of the American Chemical Society held in Anaheim, California, scientists sounded yet another warning about the clear and present danger of the antibacterial ingredient TCC -- at least in the aquatic ecosystem. For the first time, scientists have evidence that this endocrine system disruptor is accumulating in fish. The animals encounter TCC as they swim in water that washes down drains and flows out of sewage treatment facilities into lakes and streams. - NaturalNews

These dangerous chemicals are not necessary in soaps and personal care products at all.
There are far better antibacterial options that are totally natural and whats more they are totally bio-degradable which means they will break down in nature and not polute our waterways or our food chain.
One remarkable and totally natural antimicrobial product is the essential oil of the New Zealand Manuka plant.
This oil is proven in studies to be very effective against both gram positive and gram negative bacteria and also to inhibit the growth of fungi that can infect the human body.
It is available at very low concentrations in a wonderful natural soap, as well as in creams effective in treating a wide range of bacteria related skin conditions

Natural Scabies Treatment

One common treatment prescribed for the treatment of it is Permethrin, a topical cream that is applied twice a day. It has a chemical that kills the mites and is approved for use in both children and adults.
Another treatment for scabies is Lindane; it comes in cream, lotion and shampoo. This particular treatment is not approved for children younger than two, pregnant women or individuals that may have a immune system that is weak.
For persons with a compromised immune system, or individuals that have tried the other treatments without success there is an oral medication called ivermectin. This is not FDA approved, but it has shown to be successful in the treatment.
Scabies can be a very annoying condition, the itching can wake you from sleep or prevent you from going to sleep and this can be rather frustrating, especially for children. - cureforscabies.info
However scientists are reporting that scabies are becoming more resistant to treatments like Permethrin and Lindane, even Ivermectin is subject to scabies resistance.There are much better all natural scabies cures available – which have been tested and proven to be effective with no recorded side effects.
A very successful natural scabies treatment includes the essential oils of New Zealand Manuka and Australian Tea Tree plants in cream, oil and soap formulations,

Natural Cancer Treatment

A sticky resin made by New Zealand bees could be used to fight cancer, according to a visiting researcher.

Professor Hiroshi Maruta says trials have shown New Zealand propolis can stop tumour growth and even make them disappear. But the claims have not been fully tested in clinical trials.
 
Professor Maruta has spent 20 years researching natural products for their cancer-fighting properties – he says this propolis resin made by Kiwi bees is potent.
 
“The tumours get smaller and after one month disappear,” he says.
 
Professor Maruta says propolis is already proven to halt tumour growth and he has found New Zealand propolis is five times as effective as that from any other country.
 
He started researching the ingredient after discovering bee-keepers suffered cancer at a fraction of the normal rate.
 
“Beekeepers are resistant to cancer by almost 1000 times. So there must be a very interesting secret,” he says.

But New Zealand propolis has not been verified in clinical trials. Professor Maruta has run tests on animals and a group of about 100 humans and he has also found that one in a 100 people have a mild allergic reaction. “Rather ironically I am allergic,” says the professor.
The Cancer Society says that propolis may have health benefits but anyone suffering from cancer should always see a specialist for advice before deciding on their treatment.

Hot Flashes treatment

Hot flashes are most often associated with menopause although there are other conditions that affect women’s hormones that can cause them. They affect about 75% of women going through menopause. Some women are able to tolerate these hot flashes better than others. For those who have more severe cases or are less tolerant there are some very affordable supplements that can help you. - Healthyhealing@googlegroups.com


Hot flashes have been treated for years with Velvet Antler by women in Korea. In the West velvet antler is best known for its ability to relieve the symptoms of Arthritis and joint pain allowing people (and pets) to have a more active lifestyle.
However in the Orient where velvet antler has been considered to be one of the 'kingly' health supplements for over two thousand years, there are a much wider range of health benefits recorded.
One is to assist normal growth in children due to the natural content of the growth hormone IGF-1 in velvet antler and another very popular use is to assist women through the hormonal changes that take place during menopause.
Velvet antler tablets are produced sustainably in New Zealand and recommended as a very effective health tonic for a wide range of ailments.

Scabies natural remedy

One way of getting an effective Scabies Treatment is by undergoing natural treatment. This method entails the use of nothing but all natural materials derived from the organic and unadulterated earth products. The use of natural medicine has been the way of treating ailments eons ago, and its effectiveness is only rekindled today. It is not at all surprising why more and more people are now beginning to rely on natural products over highly synthetic ones. This is because many if not most of the drugs on the shelves of those pharmacies have one or more side and adverse effect. Who would want to be relieved with some symptom only to suffer another? Certainly none, and this is what natural cure for scabies is all about. It is about a safe remedy both for adults and kids and effective treatment modality. Natural cure for scabies may also be cheaper in price compared to the branded medications.- nehsconference.org
 A highly effective natural scabies treatment is formulated with New Zealand Manuka essential oil combined with Tea Tree oil in a sweet almond oil base, this is complimented with Manuka soap and a cream containing Manuka and Tea Tree oils with lemon myrtle oil which gives it a very pleasant natural lemon aroma.
Treatment is fast, safe and effective with these products which are provided with a money back guarantee and free shipping worldwide.

Acne treatments and dangers

One extremely controversial treatment is Accutane. This prescription product has been used successfully for scarring cystic acne or acne that has not responded to other treatments. However, it has been associated with severe birth defects; dry eyes, mouth, lips, nose and skin; itching; nosebleeds; muscle aches; sun sensitivity; and poor night vision. It can increase levels of triglycerides and cholesterol, and affect liver enzymes as well. Some studies associate use of Accutane with depression and even suicide. - The Downey Patriot - Paging Dr Frischer Acne
We agree with this report completely, and recommend that in the first instance acne should be treated with the most natural treatment available to avoid the risks of serious side effects.
Manuka UMF honey is highly antibacterial and natural, it has been shown to be very effective in treating acne as has manuka oil, (both from the same plant which only grows in New Zealand) either in pure form or in a cream formulation.
An acne treatment pack featuring Manuka honey, soap and oil has achieved very good results

Athletes Foot

So is going barefoot a happy part of a carefree summer or a great way to step on bee, get Athlete’s Foot and develop calluses? Is going barefoot old fashioned fun or something else? Do your kids head out to play barefoot or would you never allow it? Do you think flip flop popularity is cutting into barefoot time?
– Theresa Walsh Giarrusso

Going barefoot will not contribute to contracting Athletes foot, in fact it will help to prevent it by helping the feet to be drier, and getting more air around the soles of the feet and between the toes.
The only time flip flops should be worn is when they go to public facilities like swimming pools etc. where they could pick up the Athletes foot fungus from a wet area where other people with the fungus have been walking.
Athletes foot fungus infections are fairly easy to treat with natural products an excellent one which has been proven over and over is one containing New Zealand Manuka oil in natural form and when included in creams and soaps

Ringworm caused by cat



A VIRULENT outbreak of ringworm has spread through a school in Madrid affecting 11 children and two teachers, according to the city health service.

The school has not been evacuated and parents are advised to send their children to school as usual but each day more children are found to be afflicted with the fungal infection that presents as ringed patches of red hives that can itch and weep when scratched. Authorities are investing allegations that the infection is being carried by a cat, a pet of one of the students. - Round Town News
It is highly likely that a stray cat could have introduced ringworm to these unfortunate school pupils, ringworm is commonly carried by cats and easily transferred to humans especially to children.
The safest way to treat ringworm is with a natural product containing the natural anti-fungal New Zealand Manuka plant essential oil in either a diluted oil or a cream and soap all of which are combined in this ringworm treatment pack

Application of Scabies treatment

Application of Scabies treatment does not solely involve the patient but its immediate community as well. Everyone in the household should receive treatment as well since scabies is highly contagious. There is no form of vaccine known to prevent infestation; rather mass treatment is opted in communities where scabies outbreak is recorded. Proper environment hygiene must also be practiced because mites can dwell in clothing.  Millions of people actually suffer from scabies around the world but with proper management it can be easily cured. Preventive approach also works best to stop the spread of scabies especially in crowded communities. - ibelievedm.com
Natural scabies treatment can be made by using natural easential oils, proven to be an effective scabies treatment.
A study carried out by Walton S.F., McKinnon M., Pizzutto S., Dougall A., Williams E., Currie B.J., at the Menzies School of Health in Darwin, Australia, found that 5% Tea Tree oil and active component terpinen-4-ol was highly effective in reducing Scabies mite survival times in vitro when compared with 5% permethrin (Lyclear) 25% benzyl benzoate (Ascabiol), 1% lindane (Quellada), and 100-8000 ng/g of ivermectin (Equimec).
They concluded "Documentation of resistance against antiectoparasitic compounds is increasing.

Natural scabies treatments based on these studies are a combination of New Zealand Manuka oil and Australian Tea Tree oil in blended oil, cream and soap formulations

Scabies treatment for sensitive skin

The symptoms I have are small (sometimes red) bumps that itch badly. Most of them are on my inner thighs and run backward onto my buttocks, a few on my lower back and across my stomach, wrists, a few on my legs, and on the tops of my hands (some on the webbing between fingers). They itch badly, mostly in the evening or right when I wake up. I have been able to sleep through the night without medication or itch cream, but before bed and right when I wake up is the worst, and sometimes through the day. Some of the bumps - the first ones - are healing/have healed, but I still get new ones, sometimes many over one night.
Because I have very sensitive skinI do not want to use permethrin, and I've also heard from many people that scabies and other parasites have developed some immunity to this prescription so I decided to look for a homeopathic remedy. I found that certain oils like tea tree oil or in my case Neem oil, are effective combined with an eradiction method of the home. I read that scabies cannot live without a hose for more than 3 days, so to be safe I am staying away from my apartment for a whole week to let the parasites die off on their own so that I can go home and vacuum and launder my clothes/bed/furniture etc. - topix.com
This definitely sounds like scabies to me and for your sensitive skin you are on the right track with tea tree and neem oils, however a far better solution is New Zealand Manuka oil combined with Tea Tree oil, it is fast, effective and safe and will not cause your skin to rash, have a look at this scabies treatment pack
