Sebaceous cysts (epidermal cysts) may be
a foreign term to you, but many women have
indeed experienced them -- perhaps without really
knowing what they were at the time.
Sebaceous cysts are small lumps or bumps
just under the skin. To be more specific, they are closed sacs that
contain keratin -- a "pasty" or "cheesy"
looking protein that often has a foul odor.
Although they are usually found on the face,
neck, and trunk, they also occur in the vaginal
area or other parts of the genitalia. In
cases of the latter, it is not uncommon for
women to fear that they are the result of genital herpes. But genital herpes create a blister-type
sore that eventually becomes crusty, not
just a bump or lump under the skin.
What Causes Sebaceous Cysts?
Sebaceous cysts are often the result of swollen
hair follicles or skin trauma.
Symptoms and Signs/Symptoms of Infection
Sebaceous cysts are usually painless, slow-growing,
small bumps or lumps that move freely under the
skin. It's important not to touch or
try to remove the substance inside to prevent tenderness, swelling, and infection
of a sebaceous cyst.
Occasionally, infections may occur. Signs
or symptoms that may indicate infection of
sebaceous cysts include:
- increased temperature of the skin over the
bumps or lumps
- greyish white, cheesy, foul-smelling material
draining from the bump or lump
How Are Sebaceous Cysts Diagnosed ?
Sebaceous cysts, to the trained eye, are
usually easily diagnosed by their appearance.
In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to rule out other
conditions with a similar appearance. You
should see your doctor to get a formal diagnosis if you suspect
that you have a sebaceous cyst.
Treatments for Sebaceous Cysts
Sebaceous cysts most often disappear on their
own and are not dangerous. As stated, however,
they may become inflamed and tender. Sometimes
sebaceous cysts grow large enough that they
may interfere with your everyday life. When
this happens, surgical removal may be necessary,
and this procedure can be done at your doctor's office. Small inflamed
cysts can often be treated with an injection
of steroid medications or with antibiotics.
Complications of Sebaceous Cysts
If sebaceous cysts become infected, they
can form into painful abscesses.
The surgical removal of a sebaceous cyst
that does not involve the excision of the
entire sac may cause the cyst to come back
(although, recurrence is not usual).
Remember to consult your healthcare provider
anytime you notice any type of growth, bump, or lump
on your body. Although sebaceous cysts are
not dangerous, your doctor should examine you to ensure that
another more dangerous concern is not present.

Body Inflammation "Many of Earthing’s benefits,
such as chronic pain relief and faster wound
recovery, may simply result from reduction
of free radical activity and inflammation, which frees up the immune
system to perform other reparations. Other antioxidant benefits
such as lowered blood pressure and better
circulation may also ...." ... to this article ...
Color Healing Technology
..Colour is used in ways such as visualising
certain coloured rays in treatment of a patient
who is known to have a certain illness, etc.
It can be used in the form of passing sunlight
through panes of coloured glass or filters
and by using coloured lamps. Another method
used to obtain the colour for therapy is
by putting water in coloured, clear containers
out in the sun and allowing the sun's
rays to pass through the coloured glass into
the water, then the water is sipped. Leave
the containers out in the sun for 2 hours
only and bring them in before midday.
Some healers like to use the visualised coloured
rays only but some like to help keep the
colour energies around the patient also by
keeping the colour in the food they eat,
the clothes they wear and the colour of their

Begin A Healthier Lifestyle
This strategy covers some strong cancer cell
killers that are completely safe to healthy
cells. Many are unique, so neither
your doctor or your alternative health professional
is likely to have heard of them. By
the way, while the feedback from users of
Zeolite Enhanced now with DHO has been supurb,
with many people saying that it alone got
rid of the cancer in thein tr body after they had been sent home to die,
it is not the best supplement covered in
this report. Though we have heard many reports
of people recovering from cancer using it
alone, it is always best to use at least
several different supplements to beat cancer.
When chemotherapy and radiatioherapy are used to kill the cancerous cells,
they harm healthy cells in the process. In
fact, they can kill people faster than the
cancer would have done. This report focuses
on natural supplements that do a good job
of killing cancerous cells, but don't
cause harm to your body. A few natural supplements
suggested for fighting cancer may have the
potential to be toxic to the body, and should
probably just be used in conjunction with
a naturopath or alternative doctor. ... to this page ...
Cholesterol Answers Cholesterol is a big subject in the American
society. Cholesterol medication is
on every street corner, everybody believes
their cholesterol is too high, and obviously
cholesterol does have a large part to play
with heart disease, but we have to get down
to some good old common sense. Not all cholesterol is bad for the body.
Cholesterol has its own role to play in the
body, and some of that role is very beneficial.

Colloidal Zinc, Copper and Gold
Another source for colloidal minerals that
I have used is the "Alchemist's
Workshop." The minerals were sent
promptly, and we have great success with
them. The Colloidal Zinc: and "Colloidal
Bone and Joint Support" are two
mineral supplements which I've purchased
from them more than one time. We have
used these for a few purposes. One
is for scoliosis help. Another help
was with the skin, acne: "It helped
a lot with my skin." That is a
quote from my daughter, regarding 'teenage
pimples.' She was speaking of the
Zinc. Specifically this Zinc from the
Alchemist's Workshop. We
have ordered it two or three times.
The bone and joint support I will be purchasing
again. So.... for those of you with
these problem areas, as well as others, this
page is for you! Sincerely,
The Editor Your Health And Tech Friend
P.S. After reading the text from the
Alchemist's Workshop, I remembered that
I had ordered the Colloidal Gold from them
P.P.S. I've made colloidal copper at
home, I felt I could handle that one!

Apple Cidar Vinegar
I have used Apple Cidar Vinegar for several health conditions.
One thing it helped me with lately was for
a cold that I was fighting. It helped my throat pain, and gave me my
voice back. Actually I had to use distilled white vinegar. But when
I was able I bought the Apple Cidar and it
did the trick. ... to this page ...
..2006 I had a recollection from when I was
'table-high' about 4-5 years old,
I was visiting at my best friend's house
- in her basement. I remembered the sight
of (an 80 + year old man) her Italian descent
Grandfather, reaching in his pocket, pulling
out a coin and flipping the coin into a coffee
cup that was on the table in front of him.
I wondered why that would have been and what
purpose it served. That is the beginning
of my story. I googled 'put a coin in a coffee cup' and
what I found was putting silver products into food-stuff(s) such as a milk bucket,
to keep the milk fresh, before there was
refrigeration. The silver coins kept bacteria
from forming in the milk jugs. Ah ha! Then
I found entries about colloidal silver, and
the benefits of taking silver in the colloidal form..." ... to read more ...
