Anatomy Now to C5 and the diseases of the skin.
C5 and the diseases of the skin, acne, eczema,
how does Hildegard propose to put the worlds dermatological industry
out of business by addressing the internal factors which predispose to
acne, eczema, even sinusitis? The use of external creams whether
medically prescribed steroids or creams with essential oils is often
useful in treating these conditions. Essential oils have an important
feature in that they also impact on the brain and our acceptance of
is why medically prescribed medicines or holistic creams often do not
work is the user doubts their effectiveness. So we come to a true
understanding of the placebo effect that the causes can be just as much
internal and emotional as external and mechanistic. By denying this and
excluding holistic treatments as 'unevidenced' the result is partial
care and partial care cannot be quality care. I have seen a doctor with
skin made paper thin by the lifelong application of steroid creams who
would not use creams with essential oils which would clear the
conditions in days.
skin in particular is very sensitive to our internal emotional states.
The radiant beauty of the skin outside is matched by the radiant beauty
within. As we age this is harder to sustain not only because of the
sun damage to the skin but our internal doubts and adaptions.
Resignation, Frustration, Despair.
"I just want a quiet life and I will keep my mouth shut whether people do good or bad."
Cowardice and resignation is thought by Hildegard to give rise to skin complaints. While attempts are made to treat these from the outside we should not neglect their internal emotional origins. By having confidence that our condition will be cured one of the predisposing factors will be removed making a cure more likely.
Confidence, trust in the divine, faith in the divine
