Chapped and Dry LipsLip problems denote gastro-intestinal problems and the remedy lies in addressing the organs of the gastro-intestinal tract. Constant appearance of sores on the lips may also denote ulceration and stagnation of blood. To remedy, the above applies. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
- Burning sensation
- Cracks in the skin
- Peeling of the skin
Causes of Chapped or Dry Lips
Chapped lips are generally caused by a lack of moisture. some lesser- known causes of this condition are:
- Excessive licking of the lips
- Allergies to cobalt or nickel
- Breathing through the mouth
- Toothpastes containing sodium lauryl sulfate, which is know to cause drying
- Dry weather
- Citrus fruits
- Excess Vitamin A
- Certain medications including Accutane, propranolol, or prochlorperazine
There are many lip balms and chap sticks available today. However, many of the ingredients found in these widely- distributed products are harmful to the body. Petroleum is a common ingredient in many lip products. Petroleum is derived from crude oil and is found in some of the following products:
- Lubricating oils
- Aloe Vera
- Vitamin E oil
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- Shea butter
DHerbs recommends switching your current lip balm to a natural moisturizer. There are many natural, organic, and petroleum-free brands available today at natural grocery stores and cosmetics retailers.
Take extra precautions in the colder months or if you are in an especially dry area. Be sure to keep your lips covered and protected from the elements. Remember that the lips are very thin skin and can be damaged easily.
Stay hydrated. By doing so your lips will retain more moisture and will be less likely to get chapped and dry. Water feeds the entire body and is essential to every function we perform.

Chapped and Dry Lips
The blackness of the lips is simply a consequence for the habit of smoking marijuana. If you become a raw foodist and eat raw foods for 3+ years your lips will lighten up.
Start drinking plenty of water and keep your lips moist (use natural chap stick).
You don't isolate a parasite. Therefore, perform the Parasite and Worm cleanse and PURIFY the entire body of ALL parasites and worms that may be in your body. Think wholistically; not fragmentally. Go after all parasites and worms, Beloved!
YES! Energy: ENERGIZER FORMULA, ENERGY TEA, and BRAIN TUNER Skin Problems: OZ OIL and HEALING SKIN OIL It really sounds like you need to detoxify your body, Beloved. The skin is a sensor of the blood and it sounds like the blood needs to be purified! Visit our FULL BODY DETOX page!
Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!
I suggest you read our â€GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)â€ article on our site under Articles. If you feel nothing helps, check your MENTALITY. Doubt cancels out healing. So does worrying and skepticism. Read the article â€THINK YOURSELF HEALTHYâ€ You can heal, Beloved. Changing your diet, did you go all raw foods and give up meat and dairy products? Around your menses, drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA. Bathe in hot water and sea salt (2 boxes) and add in 2-3 drops of essential oil of Clary sage and Geranium (available at Whole Foods). There's so much you can do! At some point, perform our FULL BODY DETOX followed by our ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN.
"Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: â€œA serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.â€ â€“ Mosbyâ€™s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in laymanâ€™s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, â€œa viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.â€ â€“ Mosbyâ€™s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: â€œany of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.â€ â€“ Mosbyâ€™s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: â€œâ€¦. skin, â€¦ mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?â€ Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you canâ€™t obtain all of them, but most of them).

The mouth sores and tenderness is NOT from the detox, but are symptoms of your body's healing, which the detox has greatly initiated.
You see, the herbs don't dictate where the emphasis goes (as far as healing goes), the body does. The body knows all the areas of your body that need addressing (emotionally as well as physically).
Internal skin is skin just as well and the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, so your body will use whatever channel is available to eliminate waste from the body.
The mouth is part of the alimentary canal so this situation with your mouth only and simply denotes that much healing is taking place in your colon.
Mouth sores are only temporary but they do dictate that the mouth's pH balance is too acidic. The mouth is naturally acidic, but it's a healthy acidic (6.8 pH)
To faciliatte healing of the mouth sores, gargle with a little tea tree oil (2-3 drops), hydrogen peroxide (half a teaspoon), and sea salt (half a teaspoon) in some warm water, throughout the day.
But just know that everything is okay. In naturopathy, we call this "healing crisis."
This sjogrens syndrome is pure healing crisis and not caused by the noble herbs. Start taking 6-9 capsules of Saw Palmetto berry daily and increase your water consumption or intake. You'll be fine!
If the SLS is not derived from coconut oil TOSS IT! It's toxic! Dabur products are suspect! If the label doesn't tell you where the SLS is derived from, it's chemical-based!
Sounds like you're pretty toxic and need to do a good cleanse. Give the Full Body Detox a try! Also, stop using commercial brand deodorants (which could be causing the problem). Use natural deodorant like brands from Alvera (available from Whole Foods Market). Use natural soap brands when washing/bathing, i.e. Kiss My Face olive and aloe soap.
Hey, what you fear will appear! Stop fearing! Fear comes from ignorance. Read some of our wonderful FREE health articles and free your mind!
Stay positive! Everything will be okay because everything is okay! Cheer Up!
Make sure you put aloe vera gel on the damaged skin of the child daily. Aloe is very calming and healing. To prevent infection, rub shea butter on the skin daily. Shea is very good for skin healing. Calendula gel (from a health food store) is also very therapeutic. The OZ OIL from Dherbs would be the best healing agent due to the oxygen in it. Alternate between the above oil, gel, and butter. Don't worry too much about the situation. Focus on healing and moving forward. The child will be alright! Peace, Love and Healing!
Thanks for the question! That is a very good question at that.
To avoid loose skin from weight loss the best thing you can do is lose weight slowly and efficiently. Healthy weight loss is around 1lb to 2lbs per week. Your body always seeks balance and does not respond well to rapid weight gain or loss. Hence the stretching of your skin. It takes around two years for your stretched skin to return to "normal" so be patient. Losing weight fast is a goal most people have and you hear stories of people losing 10 lbs a week and believe that is the way to go. Considering your age it's best to take things slow. Besides not losing weight too rapidly, here are three other tips for keeping skin tight.
- Switch to a high raw food diet. Raw food diets are often referred to as "Facelift Diets". People who eat a majority of their food raw (60% plus) look younger than most because of the high antioxidant and phytochemical count in raw plant foods. I have seen hundreds of raw foodists lose weight and cellulite at the same time. Raw food helps the body stay hydrated, refreshed, and repairing rapidly. Fruits are my favorite skin food. Avocados, coconut, bananas, peaches, tropical fruit, grapefruit, berries, etc are all potent skin renewing and correcting foods.
- Hydration is the key to elastic skin. A simple test to see if you are hydrated is to pinch the skin on the top of your hand for two seconds and then releasing. If the skin snaps back you are hydrated. If it slowly pulls back to position you need to hydrate. The best way to hydrate is to drink two glasses of room temperature water as soon as you wake up. As maintenance drink 8 ounces of water every two hours. Remove or lessen the amount of dehydrating foodstuffs like coffee, tea that is not herbal, table salt, animal products, artificial sugars.
- Take care of your skin now by exfoliating daily, doing salt scrubs, using non toxic and natural beauty products. A rule of thumb is "if you wouldn't put it in your mouth don't put it on your skin". Your skin has a direct pathway to your blood stream so be careful what you put on it. I use coconut oil on my skin daily as a moisturizer and that is it. My skin has never been better.
Lastly, with your health goals I recommend you have a free online consultation with me. I run a six month health coaching program over skype that teaches a system of health that empowers people to take control of their own health by teaching them all the tools to get their. Some of the lessons in the course are alkalinity, 60-90 percent raw, detoxing and cleansing, juice fasting, plant based beauty, intro to stress relief and meditation, etc. My clients get the results they desire and get healthy for life. To get a free consultation with me fill out the health history form found here: Health forms . I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you have any more questions.

PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX (AND DO SO PERIODICALLY). ALSO, STAY AWAY FROM SALT AND SALTY FOODS. THESE CAUSE YOU TO RETAIN FLUIDS.
Yes, I was on Al Sharpton today! For your condition, Beloved, work on cleansing your blood as the skin manifests the condition of the blood. Try our BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA or the FULL BODY DETOX . Use visualization techniques as well. See yourself as you desire to be. This is the best thing (technique) you could do for yourself. I have an article coming soon that addresses your inquiry in full. The answer (solution) lies within, Beloved, not without or externally (in some drug)!
Secondly, change your diet!
Thirdly, FORGIVE yourself. Release any regret and other negative emotions as they don't serve you, Beloved! They prevent you from healing. Let go of the past!
Fourth, THINK POSITIVE! Know that you will be healed and soon!
Fifth: Try dipping your penis into a bowl of cold (or room temperature) aloe vera GEL to give it some relief.
There is healing and help for you, Beloved!
You're welcome, Beloved!
The best way to get sodium is via vegetables (i.e. celery).
Sea salt is great source of sodium, but its a secondary source as it has to be processed from ocean water. Absent the process, it would not be available.
But it does provide minute amounts of trace elements.
In re Epsom salt, I haven't been able to find the sodium one.
I stopped using Epsom salt many years ago.
You could bath in the good Epsom salt, but sea salt is far better and more natural.
