CASE STUDY: Eczema Swelling and Herbal Medicine
Natasha came to Amethyst after an eczema flare. Her face had swelled beyond recognition.
A year ago she started getting itchy and severely swollen eyes which then progressed to intense redness and itching on the rest of her face. She started going thru cycles of flare-ups that usually lasted two weeks.
Natasha and I worked together for three months, at first in office, then via video conference call. Once we got the facial swelling under control with an ingested liquid herbal formula, we worked on stabilizing her skin with another liquid formula as well as some herbal topicals.
As you can see, Natasa’s swelling and eczema resolved and she is looking and feeling like herself again. She has not had a single flare ever since. As an added bonus, a stubborn eczema spot that has been on her hand for over 5 years, completely resolved as well.
What Natasha Says
I`m so grateful to have found Olivia! After a year and half of looking for answers and consulting with a dermatologist, an eye and sinus doctor, I was left with no diagnosis and only a steroid prescription. In less than 3 months, Oliva was able to gradually resolve all my symptoms. Olivia is a pleasure to work with – she is professional, kind, and most importantly knowledgeable practitioner who you can trust. I highly recommend Olivia!
