Skin Issues

Hello Susun!

I hope today finds you well. This is a tough one. I have whitehead acne, that manifest in different sizes and do not pop. My dermatologist is unable to keep them from coming back, and digs them out with special needles. All his little chemicals are
unable to stem the tide. Now I have many tiny ones all over my face.

Please help if you are able. I'm so tired of living with these.
thank you



There are several herbs you could try.

First, spray yarrow tincture on your clean face morning and night. Leave it on. Let it dry on your face. Do not put soap on your face. Cleanse it with witch hazel extract on a washcloth. Use a new spot on the washcloth each time.

Second, take burdock root tincture, 15-20 drops twice a day for at least four months. (do not take capsules, tincture only)

Third, avoid all hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats. If possible use only olive oil and butter.

Last, eat at least a half a cup of yogurt a day for at least six weeks. (best to get plain and add fruit if you want)

Hope this simple remedies can help you.

Help with Ringworm

Dear Susun,

I have been an avid reader of your books for some years now. I thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom with me through your books.

I have had ring worm since March of last year. For the longest time I thought it was eczema and treated it as such. I finally went to the doctor and she said it was ringworm. I have been putting tea tree on it (it is by my elbow) but is getting so red now and slightly painful. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Several years ago I went and saw you speak about nutrition and herbs in Seattle and I changed by perceptions of health and healthy food irreversibly for the better.

Thank you so much,


Dear Angie,

I am not surprised that you are having a reaction to tea tree oil; it is very damaging to the skin. Try this: coat the ringworm with olive oil then sprinkle on some powder of yellow dock root or goldenseal root. Repeat several times a day. Usually kills the fungus in 7-10 days. Good luck.
