If you don’t, you know someone who does…

Eczema. Atopic Dermatitis. Psoriasis.
You pick—they all suck.
Help someone by letting them know they need to stop treating the outer symptoms and listen to them.
There’s something going wrong inside you.

I’ve been wondering what God has in mind with my continual struggle of skin issues; how is He gonna use this situation?
I’m putting the word out, for starts.

Steroid creams have terrible side effects if you stop suddenly from using them constantly. Comment on my post and I’ll help you know what to do.
Have you tried going gluten-free?
lactose-free? sugar-free?
seriously. You’ll be amazed at what treating your body internally does to your external beauty.

I’m going to do another post about an herb from the Bible:

Psalm 51:7
“Purge me with hyssop,
and I shall be clean:
wash me,
and I shall be whiter than snow.”

Hyssop has the chemical thujone which is antiseptic and also stimulates the central nervous system. But be careful, because in some people with more sensitive nervous systems, it can give seizures.. 

—Medicinal Action and Uses—Expectorant, diaphoretic, stimulant, pectoral, carminative. The healing virtues of the plant are due to a particular volatile oil, which is stimulative, carminative and sudorific. It admirably promotes expectoration, and in chronic catarrh its diaphoretic and stimulant properties combine to render it of especial value. It is usually given as a warm infusion, taken frequently and mixed with Horehound. Hyssop Tea is also a grateful drink, well adapted to improve the tone of a feeble stomach, being brewed with the green tops of the herb, which are sometimes boiled in soup to be given for asthma. In America, an infusion of the leaves is used externally for the relief of muscular rheumatism, and also for bruises and discoloured contusions, and the green herb, bruised and applied, will heal cuts promptly.

The infusion has an agreeable flavour and is used by herbalists in pulmonary diseases.

It was once much employed as a carminative in flatulence and hysterical complaints, but is now seldom employed.

A tea made with the fresh green tops, and drunk several times daily, is one of the oldfashioned country remedies for rheumatism that is still employed. Hyssop baths have also been recommended as part of the cure, but the quantity used would need to be considerable.

All in all, hyssop is seen a lot in the Bible.
In Exodus it is the ‘paintbrush’ for the lamb’s blood over the doorposts of the Isrealites during “Passover”.
In Leviticus it is used for cleansing the lepers.
another is
In John it is the last thing that Jesus’ tastes before He says, “it is finished.”I think its time to find some hyssop honey… apparently bees can really turn this stuff into some good yummies!
