Today, I want to share a few interesting natural alternatives for styes.
A stye is a little pimple or pustule on the eyelid, usually involving a sebaceous gland. The sebaceous glands are oil glands. If one of these glands becomes clogged, it can lead to a staph infection and inflammation. It typically causes a lot of redness and irritation.
In many cases, within seven days, the stye will go away. But, some people deal with recurring styes. People with diabetes have a much higher incidence of styes and staph infections.
Sometimes retinoids, a type of vitamin A, are used as a treatment for styes. There is an interesting relationship between vitamin A and styes.
One thing that can occur with a vitamin A deficiency is hyperkeratosis. Hyperkeratosis causes a roughened extra layer of skin tissue in the ducts of the sebaceous glands. This means that a vitamin A deficiency can cause the sebaceous glands to be clogged, leading to inflammation.
A certain study on humans showed a significant vitamin A deficiency in those who had styes vs. those who did not.
Vitamin A is also important for the immune system. A deficiency in vitamin A can increase the risk of infection. Diabetes and insulin resistance can also impair the immune system.
Vitamin D is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories, and vitamin D deficiency is associated with many different eye problems. Vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of both infections and styes.
Zinc is important for building up the immune system and reducing the recurrence of styes.
Top causes of vitamin A deficiency:
• A lack of the active form of vitamin A in the diet (retinol)
• Gut inflammation
• Liver issues
• Gallbladder issues
• Lack of bile
• Zinc deficiency
Foods rich in vitamin A include:
• Beef liver
• Egg yolks
• Cod liver oil
The best natural ways to help get rid of a stye and keep it from coming back:
1. Get on the Healthy Keto® diet
2. Take vitamin A and vitamin D (cod liver oil)
3. Take zinc (200 mg for one week, then back to normal amounts)
4. Rub a clove of garlic on the stye a few times a day without getting the garlic in your eye
5. Make green tea, then place the cooled green tea bag on your eyelid over the stye
