ust been reading about some unusual treatments and natural remedies for this unpleasant, irritating and watery eye ailment- Conjunctivitis.
- Try bathing your infected eyes with pure distilled rose water with no additives, and as an added bonus this has the most wonderful smell.
We read that rose water sold in chemists and even natural health stores often contains additives so be sure to read the labels carefully. Providing the rose water is pure and applied hygienically I can’t see this doing any harm and may well be soothing even if it does not act as a cure.
- Another extraordinary treatment said to act as a cure is to add a drop of cayenne pepper tincture to an eyebath. Apparently it is extremely painful but the eyes will feel wonderful afterwards.
I read that it will clear the eyes of toxins and bacteria and stimulates the flow of blood.
- Another curious treatment is to place half a tomato on each eye and allow the natural juices to soak into the lids and surrounding area. The tomato juices are said to act as a cure.
I should make it clear that I am not in any way a medical expert, just passing on some interesting information that I have read which is no way intended to be a recommendation.
You should always obtain a doctors opinion before trying any medication, even natural homeopathic remedies can have side effects in certain instances.
