We are currently in the thick of summer and with fun warm weather activities can come the not-so-fun ailments. Whether you enjoy camping, hiking, swimming, heading to the beach, vacationing to the tropics, or even just barbecuing with friends, we’ve got you covered. Enjoy summer 2022 with these 4 tips on how to avoid and treat summer ailment by the use of natural medicine.
1. Summer Skincare Remedies
We get it, there’s nothing better than having a nice bronze tan to make you feel glowing this summer. However, keep in mind that when you’re at the beach or pool, it’s important to take care of your skin by actively applying sunscreen.
The Skin Cancer Foundation says that daily use of SPF 15 can reduce a person’s risk of developing melanoma by 50 percent and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) by about 40 percent. Sunscreen and moisturizing also protect your skin against premature aging.
If you do find yourself burned, there are natural ways to treat your sunburn.
The fix? Keep your skin cool and hydrated. Be sure to drink a lot of water and apply a cold compress to the area that has been burned for 10-15 minutes several times a day. Another great natural solution is the use of Aloe Vera. Aloe contains chemicals that have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Varicose Veins Treatment
So, now that you find yourself with a nice tan, how do you deal with those pesky skin issues that have been hidden under pants all season? If you suffer from a disorder such a varicose veins or spider veins, you might feel insecure wearing shorts.
First off, more than 3 million Americans suffer from varicose veins every year, so know you’re not alone.
Varicose veins appear on the inner leg, lower leg/calves when faulty valves in your veins allow blood to pool or flow in the wrong direction. The results are enlarged, swollen, twisted and often dark purple or blue veins. While these veins are mostly cosmetic, they can cause problems like heavy legs or cramps in the calves which can be very painful.
Spider veins are a much milder form of varicose veins. Thinner they usually appear blue, purple, or red and lie just under the surface of the skin. Forming in web like or branch patterns on the legs or even face. Sun damage can cause tiny blood vessels to burst which causes the spider veins on the face.
The fix? Try our Natural Varicose Vein Treatment that contains a blend of proven effective medicinal plants that help to eradicate spider and varicose veins without adverse side effects and a dramatic healing effect. You’ll be feeling confident wearing shorts before you know it!
What about donning your swimsuit for the first time and noticing a nasty skin tag? Well, first you need to understand the that skin tags and moles are different. While both are typically benign growths on your skin, there are also factors that make them quite different.
For the most part, moles are benign and harmless, tend to be black or brown and are round and flat in shape. They can show up as early as 3 years old but tend to be a result of a lot of sun exposure, which is why it’s important to pay attention to your skin. If a mole turns colors or morphs into a different asymmetrical shape, get it checked out by your doctor.
Skin tags are fleshy overgrowths that appear on your neck, armpits, and under the breast. They tend to be similar in color to your skin and shouldn’t cause any reason to be worried. But we get it, they’re not attractive either.
Don’t worry, we have a solution for that as well.
The fix? Try our Skin Tag Control Extra Strength uses a certified organic formula that works to dry out skin tags when applied topically while supporting the immune system. When application is followed as directed you can expect the skin tag to dry up and fall off in 1-2 weeks.
2. Remain Fungus Free At The Pool
We get it. It’s hot and a nice dip in the pool sounds amazing. Whether you head to the neighborhood pool or public pool, it’s imperative to know how to avoid any ailments that might be lurking.
Seriously, watch where you step and make sure that you always have shoes on if you aren’t in the pool. Why? Because infections such as nail fungus are likely to be found in a pool environment. The fungus that causes these infections thrive in warm, moist environments i.e. swimming pools.

Similar to contracting nail fungus, athletes’ foot can also be contracted by not wearing the proper footwear in bathrooms and locker rooms. Athlete's foot is a common fungal infection that most people get from walking barefoot in moist public places, like a swimming pool deck or locker room. Try to take the proper precautions by wearing shoes in these areas, making sure you have socks that dry quickly and don’t share towel or shoes.
However, if you find that you’ve contracted athlete’s foot, know that we have the right treatment for you.
The fix? Try our Natural Athlete's Foot Treatment is a organic anti-fungal that quickly relieves and cures the itching, burning, and irritation from fungal infestations associated with athlete’s foot and jock itch.

4. Avoid Heartburn at Barbecues
Another staple summertime activity are barbecues. And if there is one thing we know, these family and friend gatherings are filled with great food but can be uncomfortable if you suffer from heartburn. The last thing you want is to come home from a fun event and feel the burning and acid of a favorite dish creeping back up your throat.
Summertime classics such as red meat, deep fried foods, tomato-based foods (salsa and ketchup), citrus food and drinks, peppers, garlic, onions, and alcohol consumption can be the leading culprit to a heartburn attack.
