Blepharitis: How I relieve my symptoms with my favorite spice!

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've recently been told by my PCP that i have Blepharitis and have an appointment with an eye doctor soon. I have been dealing with it for almost two months now and one of the quickest symptom relievers I've found thus far is none other than Turmeric! I've used it for ages for my skin as well as drinking it in tea because I have high cholesterol and I heard it can help lower it and its honestly the miracle spice. It has so many benefits. Anyhow, I also learned that it has anti-inflammatory properties so i decided to use it on my eyes to see if that would help with anything. I boiled some water and let my turmeric tea steep. I pinched the tea bag until it was as dry as I could get it. After a couple of minutes of massaging the tea bag on my eye, I felt this "icy-hot" like sensation that was so strong. I so scared I rushed to the mirror to see the damage. To my relief there was non except my skin was now stained yellow which I should have seen coming. However, I will definitely take the yellow after the relief I saw and felt. I repeated this massaging two times on each eye until the tea bag was no longer warm (about 15 minutes) and these are the results. A very quick fix for when you are in a pinch and don't want to look like you've been crying all night! love!imageimageimage

    from the pictures your eyes dont look much different from before and after? Did the inflammation on bottom eyelid disappear?

    And how much turmeric did you put in the tea?
