Deep Skin Fissures
Along with the list of conditions treated that I mentioned in my Gallixa article, I have a new one to add to the list!
Gallixa is impressive for healing deep skin cracks and getting rid of the pain from these fissures fast!
I tend to get deep cracks on my feet after doing karate. I always train in bare feet on a hardwood floor, even at home. Occasionally one of my fingers gets split skin after karate too. You can't imagine how deep and painful a heel crack can get in the winter when it's cold and dry. Well, last Wed evening, I had an online karate class and the next morning, I woke up with a very deep and painful crack in the ball of one foot. Another split also appeared literally overnight on a finger near my knuckle. It's been very hot and humid lately in CT, so I was a little surprised why I would get these splits in the summer all of a sudden. Dehydration? I am trying to drink more water, but perhaps it's just not enough.
At any rate, I applied Gallixa skin cream to both skin cracks. Within minutes, the pain stopped and a few hours later, both cracks started to close. This gallium maltolate cream works FASTER than liquid bandaid or anything else I have tried over the years at getting rid of the pain from a wound. Highly recommend this for anyone who gets these painful skin fissures that take a long time to heal.
If anyone has any idea what supplement or topical I can try to stop this issue from happening in the first place, I'd love to hear it! At this point, I've tried every recommended supplement from various websites for skin cracks trying to pinpoint a deficiency. I've also tried a ton of topical treatments. Haven't made a dent yet. I'm missing the link!
Since you have tried probably all of the supplements suggested for cracking skin on the feet, hypothyroid is a common cause also that your doctor can check you for at your next visit. In the meantime, the high strength zinc diaper cream (40%?) may be helpful in conjunction with an oral zinc supplement along with vitamin A and magnesium, which may also be helpful if you are hypothyroid.
Thank you so much, Art. I will check for hypothyroid on my next dr visit. Also will check out the 40% zinc cream. I think you mentioned that when I complained about a rash on the top of my foot ages ago!
The past couple of days I have been experimenting with turpentine followed by DMSO on the bottom of the foot. Skin is considerably softer, and circulation seems to be improved which is a bit surprising. Will keep it up and let everyone know.
Incidentally, I bought the Diamond G brand of turpentine on Amazon and some reviews complained about a watered-down version. I think so too but it still is a fabulous product!
My daughter bought me some of this cream, she worked at a daycare with 4 infants and all those diapers and it is amazing to heal heel cracks in one night but you have to keep putting it on each night.

Eric Berg says heel cracks are a liver issues and skin issues are a lack of fat for fat soluble vitamins absorbed in liver and some vitamin D helps skin because of the oil in the capsule.
Right now I am learning BELIEVE AND RECEIVE through teachers on healing journeys, this one was dying of MS

Thank you, Charity! I checked out the cream from Lush... looks great. I do have shea butter organic oil here, which is one of the ingredients in that cream.. It is very helpful for uber dry skin but temporary results.
I also watched Dr. Berg's video on the subject when you mentioned it in another post a month or two ago. The vitamins he suggested didn't really help, so still searching!
Thanks again for your reply!
Chamomile Health Benefits, Uses and Side Effects - Dr. Axe (draxe.com) was the first ingredient in the cream.
I will say I foot soak and lots of things help. The feet have the largest pores to take in healing and detox out of. I soak one or more of--borax, comfrey, mint, horsetail, epson salt, vinegar, dandelion, old opened wine, and wine is amazing for dead skin cells to come off and very nourishing. Plum or grape peels work amazingly on skin too. Pumpkin goo will soon be everywhere and is lovely on skin. Put on skin and leave for hours. I have used calamus oil, coconut oil, castor oil, comfrey creams, helping hands, vaseline. Liver issues and cortisol are my root issue. I take chromium and vanadium on and off for blood sugar. Only because they affect the skin as trace minerals. (diabetics have a lot of foot issues and are low in these trace minerals that regulate sugars) I am not diabetic, but haven't seen a doc in 6 yrs I think. They don't appear to be good for my health. They give me lots of bad news with no solutions, Just more fears to battle. Placebos work because when we believe it manifest. Reprogramming my mind . 2 Peter 1:3
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”
King James Version (KJV)
May you find your solutions, Blessings charity

Have you tried magnesium oil on your feet? It has softened up the cracks on mine! I apply it every day.
when a person is detoxing the toxins go out the body ...the feet have the largest pores to exit from. When I detox candida I get vaginal yeast outbreaks . A detox can affect the skin as the largest organ. Sometimes the symptom is the sign that what you are doing is working. Like herx reactions.
The Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction is an immune-mediated self-limited reaction that occurs within 2 to 24 hours of treatment and is characterized by high fever, malaise, nausea, vomiting, headache, muscle pain, intensification of skin rashes, tachycardia, malaise and less frequently, chills and exacerbation of a secondary syphilis rash 2).

Neither my sister nor myself had much luck with Gallixa. It didn't seem to help her neck pain and while it did seem to help my hip pain I was using it for, the relief was limited and short lived. I'm using homeopathy for the hip pain now and it offers more and longer relief. I am currently using Gallixa for gnat bites that I got the other day and it does relieve the itching very significantly, but oddly has little effect on the swelling? I normally use Vicks for gnat bites and their effect is similar, but I would say Gallixa is slightly more effective and lasts longer per application. The smell to me is more like maple syrup than strawberries.
I think it is still worth trying. My sister's case is a tough one as she has multiple issues going on in her neck and I was hoping to find something that would work as well as Stopain that she could use in the wintertime as it snows where she is and Stopain has a significant amount of menthol which precludes her from using Stopain in the cold weather.
Please report your results back on EC so other members can get more feedback!
Thanks for the feedback, Art!
For your sister's neck pain, I learned it might take several days of using it three times per day for significant pain relief to be noticed. I think you mentioned in another post some time ago she had painful stenosis in her neck so yes, that would be tricky to treat.
I have still been having great results using Gallixa on myself and my dogs. I find it to be most effective if applied a few times a day but on some conditions, like dermatitis and dry lips on my elderly dogs, only once or twice a day is enough to make a significant difference.
For my herniated spine, I applied Gallixa to the sore area on my spine and took one enteric-coated aspirin. It was the BEST combo of the many I tried for pain, so I really love this product!!! And it smells a bit like cotton candy to me, very nice.
If pharmaceutical grade CBD oil did not offer any relief, I am doubtful that homeopathy in the short term is going to be useful, but possibly in the long term so you will have to use something else for pain management in the meantime. It is difficult to make suggestions for a couple of reasons. One you have not said what you have been diagnosed with and two, you have not said everything that you have tried to relieve the pain.
As an example, if it is one of the many forms of arthritis, have you tried borax? If it is a tendon or ligament issue, are you taking a statin drug or specific line of antibiotics that might be causing it? There are alternatives to statins and antibiotics that could potentially resolve the issue, but you have not given enough information to form a reasonable opinion. If it is very severe bone deterioration a hip replacement may be the last resort.

For severe topical pain relief, I wrote this :
After the birth of my large baby boy I had the most painful hemorrhoids. My Mom had given me Gallixa cream for my dry skin and after reading about all it does I put it on my hemorrhoids. Just like a miracle all the pain stopped. I put a dab on about 3X during the day, then at night. Hemorrhoids gone by the 3rd day. Also used it for sore nipples from breastfeeding.
Gallixa ointment as sold the gallixa website helped LS. My dermo is selling it now!
I have sex very regularly now!!
Where to Buy Gallixa
Just wanted to let you know we have another shipment of Gallixa just in. We have two sizes, the larger tube size, and the jar. The jar is perfect for those who have difficulty squeezing tubes due to arthritis.
Dr. Bernstein ran out of Gallixa tubes last week after we sent out our newsletter and is substituting his Gallixa for Horses tube size instead. It is exactly the same product - same ingredients, same size, same price. Just the label is different.
Here's the link to the Earth Clinic shop in case you missed it the first time around. We're really looking forward to getting feedback from all the people who bought Gallixa last week!
This is interesting! I've never heard of Gallixa cream. I wonder how it performs on facial skin.
Yes, Gallixa works great on the face and absorbs well leaving soft skin. I'm testing it on two small spots on my face. I applied it to my entire face one day to test but the smell of cream -- strawberries -- was a bit too much all over my face even though it's quite a faint smell. But my skin was very soft and moisturized!
Hello E. C.
I just wanted to congratulate you for all that very helpful and comprehensive information on Gallixa. Wish we could source some down here in Hobbit Land.
Hobbits probably suffer from the dreaded Arthritis too I shouldn't wonder.
Possibly you could insert the "missing word" in the paragraph on "Directions"! I think you may have inadvertently omitted the word "jar" from the instructions / advisory?
Just FYI .
Cheers from Down Under.
Thank you very much for the edit, Michael. Fixed!
We do ship Gallixa worldwide, as does Dr. Bernstein's site, so you can test it out anytime!
Hi Deirdre of E.C.,
I am glad to be of some small assistance!
I hope you are successfully dealing with health issues you mentioned recently?
So, you have moved from Hollywood to Connecticut I see - change of climate too I suppose - colder in the winter eh? Do you need to change accents to become accepted by the locals?
Hot on the news here to-day, is a Black Bear stealing toilet paper (left by an Amazon drone?) from a house porch in Connecticut! The woman seemed pretty philosophical about it though. Happens all the time maybe? Neighbour of yours?
Over here TP is the first item folks have rugby scrums for in the supermarkets when we are about to go into the dreaded Lock-downs.
We are a trifle bemused that it seems to be world news that NZ went into level four lock-down when we experienced our very first (single) case of the Delta variant. BUT that's what our "Jacinda's Team of Five Million" do though!! "Hit em quick and hit em hard" has become the National Mantra.
We'll see how that one pans out!?
We are still holed up in premises with only very restricted movement allowed.
The world becomes stranger by the day.

P.S. On a somewhat lighter "note", check out Jeffrey Lewis, "When I was Four" song.......one of your talented Countrymen I think.
Very witty, Michael!
Didn't hear the story of the tp stealing bear in Connecticut! The topic wasn't trending on my NextDoor app, so I don't think it happened in my area!
Ha, no accent change was needed for a successful move! And I rarely start my sentences with "Like", so check that one off the "move to the other coast" list.
Wishing you and your fellow countrywo+men a fast end to level 4 lock-down!
P.S Will check out the song!
