Many critics of holistic and natural health remedies, such as those who might look at the idea of Assemblage Point healing and wonder why it can’t fix a broken bone or heal a pimple, often wonder why these “cures” don’t work for everything. There are some fairly simple explanations that can clear up why an Assemblage Point shift, or a cream made of lemon juice and sour cream, or whatever natural remedies for acne might be used, don’t work all the time.
First of all, how well a remedy works will depend on what caused the problem in the first place. Someone with a broken finger, for instance, may have an Assemblage Point that’s out of position. That didn’t break the finger, and fixing it won’t heal the finger. A broken bone is an acute problem, not a chronic one. A shifted Assemblage Point can, however, help with pain relief and the speed and ease of healing by putting the body’s processes back into their proper state of operation.
Acne follows a similar model. If a pimple has appeared because of dirt and oil that clogged a pore, then no amount of natural brews, ice packs, steaming or Assemblage Point shifting will immediately heal that pimple. If it was caused by an external force, then it’ll take an external change to undo it. But natural remedies for acne can help prevent imbalances that can cause future breakouts, as well as help the body’s immune system work properly to promote new cells to form naturally and help the pimples disappear more quickly.
When acne does appear, a number of home remedies can help in an acute way to dry the pimple and speed its disappearance, usually regardless of the cause. Remember that not everything touted as “natural” is actually safe. Hemlock, for instance, is a natural plant that’s quite toxic, as are many other things. So use common sense when searching for natural remedies for acne, and if you’re in doubt, opt for something else.
Citric juices and the flesh of citrus fruits is often used to cleanse the skin, usually mixed with water or some other material to keep it from being too harsh, as it contains salicylic acid that helps remove oil and dead cells from the skin. It acts, in essence, like a very mild chemical peel, allowing new skin to show. This helps prevent acne caused by clogged pores and can help heal current breakouts. There are a number of natural remedies for acne and over-the-counter products that contain salicylic acid because it’s so effective.
Also, remember that being gentle with your skin is much more effective than being harsh. Even just rubbing too hard while cleansing can irritate the skin and cause more breakouts. Use a slightly textured cloth or a mild scrubbing lotion to clean the skin so that you do remove the dead cells properly without aggravating or damaging the surface. Natural remedies for acne won’t have a chance to work if the skin stays dirty or is scrubbed too aggressively.
