Remove fungal and bacterial skin infections
Troubled by persistent skin infections, such as acne, boils, candida, rosacea, impetigo, ulcers and cellulitis
Do you need to remove fungal and bacterial infections that are not improving with usual medical treatments?  
Common fungal or bacterial skin infections can range from mild to severe and even life threatening. Many bacterial infections are caused Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus, the bacteria associated with strep throat. Some infections are highly contagious, such as impetigo. Others are caused by fungal or viral infections.
Skin infections occur in a variety of locations on the body, in various forms and effect all ages. Vulnerable groups include those who are:
  • infants and students
  • unable to eat healthy food
  • are already unwell or are elderly
  • stressed and tired
These groups are far more vulnerable to infections and recovering from them.  Many skin infections need to be treated by a GP or hospital in severe cases. Other options are essential when resistance to antibiotics has occurred and infections remain.
For instance research confirms there are strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties within herbs. You can use specific herbs for topical and internal treatment for skin infections. Nutritional supplements, probiotics and topical products are useful as well.
Natural medicine to heal skin infections
Before or after antibiotic treatment, herbal medicine can continue to provide anti-microbial support. Herbal medicine can help your body fight infection, reduce inflammation and encourage skin to heal after an infection.
To aid healing in some people who are nutritionally deplete due to poor diet, a specific supplement and probiotic are very useful. Together they help restore healthy bacteria to the digestive tract and strengthen our ability to heal.
A variety of herbs work well in combination and when prescribed for each person’s type of infection and general health. Here are a few of the amazing herbs that restore healthy skin.
Echinacea, Golden Seal, Calendula, Thyme, Pau D’Arco:  
This group have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties used to clear stubborn skin infections, boils, inflammation, and eczema.
Thuja and St John’s Wort:
These great anti-viral herbs can be helpful for warts, verruca and herpes. St John’s Wort is also used when the skin feels sensitive, painful or tingling. These are the common symptoms of herpes infections, shingles, chicken pox and cold sores.
All the above herbs are useful for boils, infections in wounds after surgery, grazes and cuts. Calendula is especially helpful for infections and wound healing.
