Skin care has been important to people for a long time.

Long before the insurance companies said they would cover us or not.

Long before people were walking around without insurance to help buffer the cost of quality health products.

That is why this story I am going to share with you has sparked me to give information to people about how care for themselves despite  what the doctors recommend or will allow there insurance to cover.

I was sitting in the pharmacy and over heard a young girl who’s family carried no health insurance was in need of a $500.00 product that would treat her skin condition. Because the child could not afford the product, they were directed to a more affordable foam substance that according to the pharmacist, “was not the same product, but does the same thing.”

The child of course would not know the product worked until she applied it and any adverse affects would not prevented because they doctor never prescribed this  $12.00 ointment that the pharmacist suggested.

While I sat there watching this procedure I had to ask myself, “If I did not have health care, was in a very bad situation of skin care, nor was carrying the kind of money needed to treat my problem, what would I do?”

I would find an alternative solution!

  • Taking a daily bath or shower. Try not to scrub too hard because this can irritate the skin and trigger an attack.
  • Oatmeal baths may be soothing and may help to loosen scales. You can use over-the-counter oatmeal bath products. Or, you can mix 1 cup (240 mL) of oatmeal into a tub (bath) of warm water.
  • Keeping your skin clean and moist, and avoiding your specific psoriasis triggers may help reduce the number of flare-ups.
  • Sunlight may help your symptoms go away. Be careful not to get sunburned.
  • Relaxation and anti-stress techniques. The link between stress and flares of psoriasis is not well understood.
  • Limiting the alcoholic beverages you drink may help keep psoriasis from getting worse.

 

  • Cortisone creams and ointments
  • Creams or ointments that contain coal tar or anthralin
  • Creams to remove the scaling (usually salicylic acid or lactic acid)
  • Dandruff shampoos (over-the-counter or prescription)
  • Moisturizers
  • Prescription medicines containing vitamin D or vitamin A (retinoids)

Most of the time we grow out of these conditions, so certainly we should not be asked to pay 500.00 for a treatment that will pass with age. It is like those attacked with acne and spend so much on creams and ointments when all they really need is a diet change.

At least that is what I did, I stopped eating anything with grease and washed my face daily and forgot about it, as a phase with age. Now those that have this condition in there late 30’s, again I suggest diet and less stress and topical cleanses. Never forget, You are what you eat.

Are you over worked and under paid?

If you live in America now-a-days, the answer is yes. Always yes.

You find yourself stuck in the city looking for ways to handle the needs of bills and life and look forward to the weekends. Never is there time to just smell the roses. To just breathe air not filled with smog from the traffic pile up.

When you do take time to a book a vacation, by the time you get there, you are think of the grind that awaits you.

What If you could find  a place, in the woods, far from everything, and find God.

Would you do it?

In the hills of North Carolina, there is such a place. Acres and acres of land untouched by the world. cabins and space for many to find that secret place. With kind hearted people to cater to your every need and minister the love of Jesus to your ever failing heart.

Many claim that they can manage without that time. They have tons of parks to dip into when they need that space. But do they really? parks are filled with regulations and louder children than the ones we raise. Not so here. All the space anyone needs to get there minds back to things that are important in life and that we take for granted.

Though in the world of today, He sees us trying.

Come all you whom labor and are heavy laden. We offer you rest in this place.
