Bags Under Eyes Natural Remedies

Unsightly swelling of the area under the eyes; the appearance can come quickly with kidney problems or long-term with kidney, liver, and colon problems. Causes are kidney or liver weakness. Medicine sees the bags as a weakness in the connective tissue around the eyes. They use surgery to remove eye bags, but bags may return as the cause has not been addressed.

From the natural perspective we see eye bags as kidney or bladder weakness. The eye most affected represents the kidney most affected. There can also be liver or colon involvement when the eye bags are lower under the eyes. This may be a sign of poor nutritional health. Stay away from alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea, soda, and fast food. Chronic therapy can take 6 – 12 months to reduce.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body's ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results -- your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
