Pink Eye/Conjunctivitis – Quick Fix

face-38102_1280Inflammation of the Conjunctiva is usually caused by allergies and bacterial/viral infections. This results in what is known as “Pink Eye” or “Conjunctivitis”.

The symptoms include:
-Itchiness of eyes
-Redness of eyes
-Increased tearing
-Discharge
-Crusting around eyes

Beware that some types of Conjunctivitis are contagious. The infection is spread by coming into contact with the eye secretions of the infected person.

Treatment:

Honey

(Mucolytic & Anti-Microbial)

Raw Organic Honey can be used as eye drops. Honey is a strong anti-microbial/anti-bacterial and assists in fighting infections. It is used in a wide variety of eye diseases and is supported by modern research.

– Using a dropper, put 1-2 drops of honey in each eye. If you feel are really sensitive or in a lot of pain, mix a little honey in a quarter glass of warm water and use 4-5 drops of this honey-water mix. Immediately close your eyes and try to move your eyes in a circular motion to allow the honey to spread within the eye socket. Beware that this will burn for about a minute or two. Along with this burn, a lot of tears will form. This is a good thing.

Turmeric

(Anti-histamine)

If due to allergies, Turmeric can help immensely. Turmeric has been used to treat allergies by Ayurvedic doctors for centuries. Not only is it a powerful anti-histamine, but also an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial herb too. It can be taken by adding half a teaspoon of Turmeric powder to a glass of steaming-hot milk/almond milk. Add a little honey to make it palatable. This can be taken twice a day.
