Blushing And rosacea - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Blushing is a common and embarrassing problem for many people.

Blushing can be a precursor to Rosacea. Rosacea often begins with easy blushing and flushing of the facial skin. Eventually, redness will persist around the nose area, extending to the rest of the face. The latest on rosacea is that it can be triggered by a diminshed amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach as well as fewer pancreatic enzymes , both essential for digestion.

You could find a good "digestaid" such as Eagles brand or use apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 2 teaspoons of raw, organic honey . Mix with 1 cup of boiling water 3X a day . This will assist digestion.

Avoid trigger foods and drinks such as alcohol, coffee and spicy foods as these can provoke red flushes.

Blushing is a chronic problem and therefore requires a long period of changes to help the body come back into balance.

It is also associated with emotional issues, nervousness and anxiety.

I suggest a mix of nervines and blood cooling herbs such as Oats, Vervain, Skullcap, Hops, Sage, Zizyphus, Black Cohosh, St Johns with the Bach Flowers Larch, Chestnut Bud, Aspen and water Violet.
