Natural Remedies For Promoting Skin Health

The skin is susceptible to many diseases and disorders. Skin disorders may be external manifestations of systemic illness. One example is the butterfly rash of systemic lupus erythematosus. Other skin conditions reflect topical exposure reactions, arising from localized responses. Skin disorders have a wide range of etiologies, ranging from infection (e.g., scabies, ringworm) to allergy (e.g., to drugs, foods, and cosmetics) to nutritional deficiency (e.g., vitamin A or essential fatty acid EFA deficiency may lead to follicular hyperkeratosis). Other causes of skin outbreaks include reactions to bites and stings and reactions to plants such as poison ivy or poison oak. This chapter examines applications of natural remedies for treating several common skin conditions.

Preface to the Series

The business of dietary supplements in the Western world has expanded from the health store to the pharmacy. Alternative medicine includes plant-based products. Appropriate measures to ensure their quality, safety, and efficacy either already exist or are being answered by greater legislative control by such bodies as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the recently created European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products based in London. In the United States, the Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act of 1994 recognized the class of phytotherapeutic agents derived from medicinal and aromatic plants. Furthermore, under public pressure, the U.S. Congress set up an Office of Alternative Medicine, which in 1994 assisted the filing of several Investigational New Drug (IND) applications, required for clinical trials of some Chinese herbal preparations. The significance of these applications was that each Chinese preparation involved several plants and yet was handled as...

Lore This tree is mainly noted for its mucilaginous inner bark, a slimy, fibrous layer resembling licorice in taste. It has high food and medicinal value. In the spring, Native Americans peeled it from the tree in long strips, dried it, and ground it into pulp for use as a nutritious flour, a wound dressing, and a soothing tea for sore throat. A piece of this material also quenches thirst when chewed. Slippery elm inner bark was once popular as a pleasant chew and home remedy. It is still commercially available in lozenge or tonic form as a mild relief for raw throats. Pioneers used this fibrous layer for making tough thongs and lacings.

Adverse drug interactions

The use of complementary and adjunctive therapy has been steadily increasing in the U.S. since the 1960s. This can be attributed to several factors, in particular to over 80 million 'baby boomers' embracing alternative medicine as a way to enhance their medical care. The perceived coldness and remoteness of conventional medicine the entanglement of managed care in red tape continued emphasis on 'natural' which supposedly connotes ' better', as well as the popularity of vegetarian practices have also contributed to the general population's increasing involvement with alternative medicine. In 1999, 40 of Americans sought alternative medical treatment, outpacing visits to conventional primary care physicians.

Pregnancy indications

There appears to be a common misconception among patients and some practitioners alike that the terms safe and natural are interchangeable (Boon et al., 1999). Consequently, many women are inclined to believe that natural remedies are safer than pharmaceutical drugs (O'Hara et al., 1998). This perceived safety of natural products over manufactured drugs could increase the potential for adverse effects in both the mother and her developing fetus. This is due to the fact that many women initiate treatment with supplements such as Echinacea without obtaining medical advice they either self-prescribe or take the advice of others. An added potential for concern is posed by the fact that many consumers may be unaware that unlike conventional medications, herbal products such as Echinacea are not under enforced regulations by the Food and Drug Administration. To further complicate matters, every country differs in their regulatory laws regarding these products. For example, minimal...

Medicinal Application Of Silymarin

The scope of this book is truly impressive, reviewing the phytochemical and pharmacological aspects of herbal drugs. The book is thoroughly referenced and illustrates the scientific approach to herbalism. The book is not limited to one class of Complementary and Alternative Medicine but also highlights medicinal applications of lesser known systems like Amchi. The book clearly warrants application of algae, fungi and mosses in drug discovery. This book was need of the hour to provide clarifications regarding issues related to herbalism. Herbalism and traditional medicine are backbone of the modern pharmaceutical industry. In China and Western countries, herbal medicine has come into the limelight because of advancement in research and development. Taxol (Taxus brevifolia), Silymarin (Silybum marianum), Artemisinin (Artemisia annua) are some reputed drugs in synthetic system of medicine. All the three drugs owe their origin to plants. We need to explore other systems of Complementary...

Moumita Sarkar and Gideon Koren

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an umbrella term that covers a number of healthcare modalities that generally fall outside the realm of the conventional medical model (Smith et al., 1996). Herbal medicine is considered to be a primary complementary and alternative therapy. In recent years, the use of herbal products has increased dramatically, particularly in developed countries, by people who wish to maintain good health and reduce the need for conventional drug therapy.

The best home remedy, I find, is to bathe affected areas in tap water as hot as one can stand, then apply rubbing alcohol to the rash. Several Native American remedies, however, may also be used. Crushed leaves of jewelweed or touch-me-not (Impatiens), Aloe vera, plantain, and sweetfern, as well as various tannic washes brewed from tree barks, have proven helpful to some. My usual summer case of it is kept restrained by such methods when in poison ivy's vicinity, I conciliate it, like the Cherokee, by addressing it as my friend. A severely unfriendly case should, of course, be treated by a physician.

Diagnosing Adrenal Dysfunction

A large number of symptoms associated with adrenal dysfunction have been reported in the literature. These symptoms are often categorized according to physiologic performance, psychologic information processing, and immunologic and biochemical parameters.70 To date, however, there is no universally agreed-on group of symptoms that describes accurately the condition or the physiologic psychologic emotional distresses that some people experience. Rather, multiplesymptoms may present in no particular combination under the general categories of adrenal exhaustion, hypoadrenocorticalism, and hyperadrenocorticalism. Perhaps the most confusing and controversial clinical component of diagnosing and treating adrenal imbalance is codifying the testing parameters to determine conclusively the presence of adrenal exhaustion and dysfunction. To advance alternative medicine in evidence-based clinical practice, tools must be developed that can give practitionersacomprehensiveapproach to diagnosing...

Herbal Medicine Today

Due to a growing interest in alternative medicine, herbalism is also attracting new practitioners, and herbal research is constantly underway. Critics note that dosages can be difficult to control, even among plants of the same species, and side effects can be unpredictable.

Preface On Topic Medicinal Plants

This multitude of medicinal uses described and discussed over the centuries is sometimes difficult to evaluate. Authors such as Crosswhite and Crosswhite (1984) have given detailed accounts of the drug in classical antiquity, concentrating on the species Aloe vera which seems to be the main one in use, with Aloe perryi from Socotra mentioned more rarely. While the acquisition of Socotra by Alexandra the Great to ensure supplies of A. perryi to treat his troops is well known and presumed true, the origins of A. vera are obscure. The plant is recorded from lands around the Mediterranean back to Mesopotamian times and was subsequently carried to the Atlantic islands and the West Indies to the west and India and China to the east. It is almost impossible to distinguish stands of plants to be of either introduced or native origin, although Hepper (personal communication) claims to have seen specimens growing in Yemen in regions so remote as to preclude the possibility of introduction,...

Heci Yu and Matti Kaarlas

During the last decade, along with growing interest in CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) therapy and changes in the regulation of dietary supplements, Echinacea has become one of the most popular herbal medicines throughout the Western countries, particularly in Europe and in North America, its original source (Asher et al., 2001 Barrett, 2003 Borchers et al., 2000 Kessler et al., 2001 Kligler, 2003). Echinacea is also becoming popular in Australia (Wilkinson and Simpson, 2001). In North Africa, South America, and China, people are also paying increasing attention to this herb (Berti et al., 2002 Dou et al., 2001 El-Gengaihi et al., 1998 Hevia et al., 2002 Li et al., 2002 Luo et al., 2003 Shalaby et al., 1997a, b Wang et al., 2002 Zhang et al., 2001).

Problems arising in aromatherapy studies

Nurses and other healthcare professionals have expressed the wish to learn and train in the use of aromatherapy, in favour of all the other alternative therapies (Trevelyan, 1996). The medical profession is also turning towards this branch of alternative medicine, as it seems to be useful in the treatment of patients whose symptoms are largely based on stress, and who do not respond to conventional medicine. The future of aromatherapy may, however, be in doubt, if there is no scientific verification of its efficacy forthcoming and if there is a clamp-down on the EO industry (which includes aromatherapists selling or just using EOs) as to the safety and standard of the

St Johns Wort

John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) is an effective alternative to standard pharmacotherapy for depression, and is one of the most studied botanical medicines. St. John's wort affects several biochemical pathways that play a central role in the pathology of depression such as the monoamine oxidase, serotonin, GABA, and dopamine neurotransmitter systems.55 The extracts and constituents of this plant have been intensely studied for the last decade and are currently considered a viable alternative medicine for depression. The mechanisms of action(s) of the constituents of St. John's wort include the ability to down-regulate beta adrenergic receptors, bind to GABA receptors, and up-regulate serotonin 5-HT(2) receptors. These effects lead to positive changes in neurotransmitter concentrations in particular areas of the brain that are associated with depression.56 In a multicenter, randomized, double-blind study, 900 or 1,800 mg per day of St. John's wort was given for six weeks plus a...

The nervous system

I still consider it important to classify the plants by their clinical indications, in spite of the fact that the greatest amount of research is still to come, to keep in mind the aim, and to see rapidly and more clearly which of the far too numerous utilizations of each plant by local healers appear the most important and are confirmed by scientific observations. The enormous treasure of natural remedies should not be used in a haphazard way. A simple extraction might in some cases enable a healer to increase or isolate a fraction with a certain action or to eliminate a toxic constituent. The experience with the same plants in similar climates even in different continents should not be ignored (although the amount or quality of the constituents can vary and should be checked).

Maria Lis Balchin

The genera Geranium and Pelargonium are invariably confused by the general public and also plant sales personnel, health food shop workers and alternative medicine practitioners, especially aromatherapists. This confusion has existed before Linnaeus (1753) and his binomial system of classification, where both genera were put under the genus Geranium, and although Sweet (1820) and other botanists reclassified them under two genera, acceptance by the majority of laymen as well as nurserymen is still low. The flowers of typical Geranium and Pelargonium species are shown in Figure 1.1.
