# 30 Talkers Thoughts About Winters Itch

Print Friendly

When I first became aware of what is referred to as “winters Itch”, I never looked at it as a big problem to anyone. How wrong that thought proved to be. Searching the net showed 127,000 hits. Sheesh, what a revelation while reading many of the hits. People are in pain and agony. Every kind of healing professional is mentioned as being contacted and being of very little help. The list of medications, salves, ointments, over the counter products used that had no relationship to an itch, and ice, floored me in how desperate many people are for some, or any kind, of relief. One site had over one thousand comments on and about what was tried to relieve itching. Many had have the problem for decades. Some have it only at some times. Others have it seasonally. Some products work for a few but not for others. Some used medication that slightly helped the itch, but caused other problems. Whats going on here I questioned. Seems that no one has any positive method to eliminate the winters itch situation. So I asked myself, what would I do if I were in a similar situation! My thoughts were many and varied, but here is what I came up with, that I would try, to eliminate the itch. I do realize that at this point, I am some what aware of “what does not help on a permanent basis”from what was read on posts.
Even reread some of my prior posts, from when I first became aware of the magnitude of the winters itch situation.(see posts # 14, # 15, and # 16) to refresh my memory.

So to me, only a thorough whole body system seems to be a possible solution, and I would use an herbal method. This thought is based on all the failed or partial relief received, comments that I read about online. All the herbs listed here, I’ve used many in one way or another or still use for those occasions I want or need to use for a purpose. If anyone else were crazy enough or desperate enough to even think of doing the same as I would, don’t. I’m some what experienced with using herbs for my needs. I’m not allergic to any of them, some are very potent, and need to be researched by users to become aware of the possible down side, in their use.
Would encapsulate some, others into extracts and make some salve. Under similar conditions but otherwise lacking experience, I would seek answers through a professional for some degree of safety. I calculate some what, that it would take about three months, to be completely rid of the the nasty winters itch. Would probably see periodical flareups, due to the body’s way of storing excess and/or necessary substances. Some of this storage, is perhaps foreign to the body and gets released in many and various ways, and becomes active again, over and over, until the stored substances within the body are cleared away. This could account for the relapses, perhaps due to seasonal changes, weight changes, relationships, coupled with dietary habits.
In my # 28 post, on this blog, I mention a book “Resurrection”, that from an unusual approach to health, just might be your “missing health link”. Of course none of this might assist any but me, (we are all different) as my approach to correcting winters itch, would be, (or any other difficulty) a “spirit, soul and body” based protocol. Would probably use a vitamin/mineral product, along with cod liver oil and flax seed oil doing this crazy process.
The formulas shown are from my herbal library, and I’ve not used these as a formula as shown personally, but have used many in a formulation for other uses.
Anyway these were my thoughts on how I would approach winters itch, if I were subjected to it.

Would start the “detox my body” protocol slowly. Doing an intense protocol on a body that may be compromised, energy and immune system wise, could some what back fire on you.

Normally I go full ahead with most protocols, a detox is an exception.
Need to NOT over do the detox until you see how your body responds to a detox. I would go slow with this for at least two weeks, and gradually increase my dosage.
