Thin and Sensitive Skin   0  0   

Posted by Man (Sojouring America) on 02/28/2014

I have noticed the skin on my fingers getting thin and sensitive on the palms and pads of my hands and fingers and was wondering what I could do to strengthen the skin on the pads of my fingers and palms. I already use coconut oil and Shea butter. Is there a known solution either from research or hearsay from people who have had this problem and found a solution? I look forward to hearing something.

Dear Man from Sojourning,

I am wondering if you are using anything on your hands that is irritating them? From this post, you mention the skin getting thinner and more sensitive...in another recent post of yours, you mention some cuts on your hands that are not healing...I have a few thoughts/questions...

Do you use anything on your hands that might have a steroid in it? (I believe topical steroids can cause the skin to thin.)

Do you use anti-bacterial soap on your hands or hand sanitizer?

Do you work with any type of chemicals or anything that could be irritating your hands?

My husband used to have something similar happen to him each winter. He would get splits in the skin on his fingers. Oddly, that was back when he had a desk job. Now he works with his hands all the time, often outdoors and this doesn't happen to him any more. It makes me think it could be related to his diet. I would have expected the desk job to be easier on his hands and that if he were going to have problems, he would have them now. But I am just starting to think about this and am just in the speculation stage.

You mention using coconut oil and cocoa butter oil, I am assuming you mean on your hands? I would consider using coconut oil in your diet, if you are not already. I have found Borage Oil, taken internally to help with skin problems that are not healing. Turmeric, also, 4 capsules a couple of times a day helps my skin to heal much more quickly.

By the way, I am appreciating your thoughts and experiments on DMSO. Thanks for sharing!

Vit-A or (Cod Liver Oil) and/or Vit-E (Mixed Natural) taken orally and/or applied topically will toughen the skin very well.

Man: Ingredients need to be organic. Mash 1 small ripe banana, add 2 tbsp. sour cream, 1 tbsp. raw honey, 1 tsp. colostrum, and 1 tbsp. whole oat flour. Mix and apply. Leave on for 30 minutes. Wash off and apply jojoba and cold pressed rose hip seed oil. To heal from the inside drink several green smoothies from organic baby leaves.

I am mentioning this because I had the problem of sore and spitting fingers for a long time. I learned it WAS from hidden sources of MSG. At the first sign of any tenderness, I look back at what I had eaten. MSG is a nerve stimulant and can stimulate some nerve cells to death. Our entire food supply has been tainted including the grains and grasses fed to pasture, grass-fed critters that we eat and get eggs or milk from. With "organics" it is in the soil. I had a worse reaction after I converted for a short time. There is no one-size-fits-all remedy. You have to pay attention to everything you eat. Everyone has a different tolerance level.

I just finished posting to the "Oil Pulling-DMSO" section but I wanted to report back to this one now that I found it again.

My fingers have healed up perfectly.

For several days I while I was sitting at computer I sprayed by finger tips with hydrogen peroxide and the bubbled up really much on under the fingernails and it stung. It was painful to spray H2O2. Then, I took pure DMSO and put it on them. And then I sprayed Capsicum extracted in alcohol on them. It was not the most pleasant treatment because I had to watch very carefully what I touched while I was treating my finger tips.

I did that for a few days.

There may have been some kind of an infection there and it seems it started after I ate some pasta that was given to me by an acquaintance.

I am thinking that my blood sugar bounced for a day or two and as a result my immune system got weak and the skin ( being the main organ in the body) showed signs of weakness. That is a thought, it is not a proven fact because I am not a scientist and I have no evidence other than what I can gather from study.
All these little tidbits of information from places like Russell Blaylock (youtube) and Dr. Mercola and right here at the Earth Clinic start falling into place.

All I have done is "Oil Pull" with DMSO and also Coconut oil.

I have taken fish oil and several grams of Vitamin C and Magnesium and Vitamin B complex. I have also been drinking a glass of distilled water with about a half a tablespoon of cayenne stirred into it. It seems to activate the entire system.

That is what I had available to me, so that is what I did.

To Mama: The chemicals I used in occupation were Acetone, Metha lEthal Ketones, Metal isobutal ketone, etc. Methylene Chloride.... these were paint stripper chemicals and I used no gloves in my younger days. And this is several years ago that I quit. I will likely have to be very careful to eat right and do the right thing from now on.

To Kt: Yeah, I do think there is a connection between MSG and food chemicals. I did eat several servings of a canned noodle thing and then I was sick for 2 days and then this problem began. My energy level bounced around and my feeling of well being bounced around.

I am beginning to believe that there is a direct connection between the food chemicals like MSG and the affect on blood sugar stability ( And Dr. Russell Blaylock also in his videos on You Tube points out the direct relation ship between diet and health).

Blood sugar stability may have more impact on good health than is published or commonly known. I already know that I can't eat pasta without feeling bad. When I ate at my acquaintance's food that was offered to me I knew that it would have a negative affect on me. And she knew I am diabetic and still offered it to me. (some people will never learn and the Bible says there are "Silly women laden with sins ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth".

I also think that there may be something to do with gluten also in this because I noticed some months ago that when I ate cheap spaghetti that I felt really bad physically and mentally. So I gave away the rest of my spaghetti.

To timh and Mike62 from Denver: I appreciate your input also.

Onward. The entire system from the head to the toe are connected in ways that I do not understand and I am not going to pretend that I do. Why do my finger tips feel so strong right now where as just a short time ago they were weak and in pain? What exactly did I do? I don't know, but I have been posting what I do and I have not hid my beliefs nor have I hid my faith in God.

Dear Man from Sojouring: Gelatin capsules are 11 to 13 mg. of MSG. When the binders and fillers are manufactured for tablets, this can create a manufactured form of glutamic acid, which is MSG. Any "extraction" should put up red flags. I learned it is the flowing or anti-caking agent in common table salt. Please be aware each time you reheat leftovers you create more MSG. That's why leftovers taste so good!

I USE (PEARS) GLYCERIN SOAP, CLORINE BATHS(1/2 CUP IN BATH WATER FOR 10-15 MINUTES/ONCE WEEKLY), ANY BABY PRODUCTS(NO HARSH CHEMICALS)

I HARDLY USE MY STEROID CREAM - DON'T WANT TO BE DEPENDENT ON IT. I WOULD SAY VISIT A GOOD DOCTOR AT LEAST ONCE. READ UP ON IT, VISIT SITES LIKE THIS AND TALK TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT AND NETWORK WITH OTHERS. TALKING ABOUT IT MIGHT HELP US TO CURE IT. I USE OLIVE OIL, CASTOR OIL, COCONUT

OIL FOR MOISTURIZING MY SKIN. I HAVE NOT TRIED ACV BUT I WILL TRY IT NOW.

I have a belief that most candida/yeast problems stem from Gluten intolerance which damages the intestines and therefore the immune system causing yeast to grow unchecked. You might get checked for that as some people are damaging there body and don't even know it. The list of symptoms is too long for me to write down.
