The doc’s recommendation:
For at least 6 weeks I should avoid hot spices (e.g. pepper) and in general I should avoid hot dishes. Further he told me to regularly drink a special tea made of plants and roots that he was going to prepare for me. This tea was supposed to re-arrange the body temperature and to rebalance my body according to TCM view. For my burning skin he prescribed a cream that I should use according to my personal needs, in the morning and in the evenning. And he told me that within 3 days I would be free of pain.
Well – guess you can imagine that I was sceptic! Should he be able to solve my many years' skin problems in 3 days, although so many specialists in Germany could not help me?
Not so trustful but very hopeful I started that cure.
One day after that consultation the tea and the cream have been delivered to the hotel. The tea was still warm, so freshly it had been cooked. Still, what I held in my hands was not the kind of thea that I was used to – a dark broth, smelling like mud, ready packed into portions. The taste reminded of liquorice. So was the cream: funny small bags filled with orange-pink cream.
The cure started by drinking the tea. It was really rough, the taste was so unusual – and ugly. Still the cream was nice, easy to be spread and very fertile. Short after applying it my skin felt so much better, the ich decreased immediatly and I felt no need to scratch at all. And all the little scales just went of easily when I washed my face.
What a feeling – my skin was still reddened however it felt soft as baby skin and was completly free of scales. Of course I continued with my tea cure and used the cream! That day I felt great and I did even more, when in the evening I had a look in the mirror – the reddened parts of my face had become pale!
I was so excited on my way to the bath room – what would the mirror show me? Would the doc’s statement be right? It was! My skin looked almost as if never in my life I had any skin problems, there was nothing to remin dof the previous discomfort!
The following 5 weeks I continued with the cure and believe me – my skin was so perfect as never before!
