Extreme Case of Keloids
Dear Ted, I have read your suggestions for keloid treatment and it makes so much sense to me about drinking the apple cider vinegar or the sea salt to get the body alkaline to treat the keloid from the inside. A homeopath once told me that my keloids were not healing because I had too much acidity inside my system. She said we usually don't see the damage all the junk we eat is doing to our body but lucky for me it shows up on my skin and maybe I can do something about it before it makes me really sick. The only thing is I took all the remedies she gave me with no results, possibly because I hadn't changed my diet....I don't remember what they were as this was about 5 years ago. My case is quite extreme: I had back acne starting at 11 years old and by 14 keloids began to form much bigger than the pimples. Now I am 24 years old and I have these huge horrible keloids just on the left and right sides of my upper back (about 20-24 keloids in total) They are still bright red, inflamed and itchy. (I find they itch more lately since I did a 1 day fasting drinking 1L of water with 1/4 tsp sea salt and a few drops of lemon juice throughout the day). Please can you suggest the best detox or mask for my case I am desperate these keloids have caused me serious psychological distress. I love swimming but I have not been to the pool in over 10 years because they are so horrible. I even went to the Dominican Republic with my husband and stood on the beach staring at the sea and I did not swim once. (I know I am being vain, I shouldn't care what people think but they' really look like some kind of disease its awful.) I also cannot wear tank tops in the summer or very short sleeves because there are some small keloids on my shoulders too. (I also have one on my chest!) It's a keloid INFESTATION! Please help? Please if you would get back to me I would be eternally grateful. Thank you.
