Thyme Out is effective and fast alternative for Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne, Dermatitis, Rosacea, Cold Sores, Pet Rashes, Bug Bites, Fungus, Poison Ivy, Any Skin Inflammation! This is a pretty impressive claim. That’s what I first thought when I learned about Thyme Out Skin Remedy. My second thought was “how do we know that those are the benefits of Thyme extract?” So I discovered the answer in conversations with Andrew Klenert. You’ll learn the answer as well in this interview with Andrew.

English Thyme

The story starts when the Romans ruled England from 43 to 410 AD. What were the herbal medicines of that time and how were they prepared? What properties would these herbs exhibit? This is the question they asked at Leeds Beckett University in England. Thyme, marigold and myrrh were all found to have anti-microbial effects, but thyme was found to be the most potent. Here is an excerpt from the University:

Acne is caused by a bacterium called Propionibacterium acnes which infects the skin pore and then forms a pimple. Currently, the most common treatments for acne are antibiotics or a topical cream or wash containing the chemical benzoyl peroxide. These treatments are often associated with side-effects, for example benzoyl peroxide often causes a burning sensation on the skin and irritation.

A solution, known as a tincture, can be made using plants and herbs, where the plant is steeped in alcohol for days or weeks. This extracts the different compounds from the plant. The research team tested the effectiveness of thyme, myrrh and marigold tinctures in killing the acne bacterium using a test commonly used to test disinfectants. The activity of the tinctures was also compared to that of the benzoyl peroxide used in acne creams.

Dr Gomez Escalada commented: “We found that all the preparations tested were able to kill a number of bacteria. The preparation that was found the most effective was thyme tincture, even better than benzoyl peroxide. This shows the potential of thyme tincture for treating acne. End excerpt. READ MORE

That could have been the end of it, as is often the case with studies like this. But like many of the amazing and effective natural products, it came to life because of the passion and interest of one person. You’ll hear this story as part of our interview with Andrew Klenert.

If it was only effective for acne, it would be worthy of celebration. Certainly with those that deal with acne this should be a welcome alternative. It may be more effective and is certainly more gentle to the skin than current medications. But when you consider eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and all the other indications, we are addressing some of the most challenging skin conditions. Most people will do anything to improve these skin conditions. Consider the common treatments that you are aware of and you will realize that they are not necessarily very effective.

So this is a natural product that is safe, mild, effective and fast acting that will have everyone excited who tries it. This is one of those products that generates a lot of recommendations and referrals from users. People are excited to share their results because the effects are dramatic and quick. You can see the difference in the before and after pictures from the Thyme Out brochure. You can download the brochure for more information.  

Thyme proved significantly more powerful at killing Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria that causes acne, than ANY other acne medication. This means that not only is Thyme Out the best Natural Treatment for Acne but also the Best Treatment for Acne!

Further, unlike the many side effects from Benzoyl Peroxide including irritated skin leading to redness, dry skin, and bleaching of clothing, Thyme has NONE of these issues. In fact, since Thyme has strong anti-inflammation properties, the product can soothe the skin naturally. I use Thyme Out and I would hesitate to use it on children for all types of bites, irritations and rashes.

Deodorant: The same anti-bacterial properties of Thyme Out also fight the bacteria that causes underarm odor. Use it as a natural base to the skin before applying a fragrance cover-up and you’ll see a significant increase in the time that odor is held back. (irritation may occur if applied to recently shaved underarms)

Anti-fungul: The amazing anti-fungul properties of Thyme Out allow you to apply it to fungul breakouts on feet, etc. You’ll see better results than with store bought fungul treatments as the thyme instantly begins to kill fungus on contact.

About Andrew Klenert
Andrew Klenert is the President and Founder of Thyme Out Skin Remedy  In 2012, he began his recent journey with Thyme Out having seen a shortage of real natural products for skin issues in the marketplace and having his own issue to solve. Through contacts at a U.K. university, he was given the formula to replicate the ancient Roman (with some Greek influence) remedy for skin issues using several species of the herb Thyme.  Upon seeing it’s amazing properties, Andrew quickly created a brand around this ancient herbal wisdom and started Thyme Out to make it accessible to everyone.

Carotenoids For Macular Health* and Blue Light Protection*

Eye Support

CLICK image for more interviews on Eye Support

Anthony ThomasPeople are now spending many hours a day looking at various device screens. The average American spends over 10 hours a looking at phones, tablets and computer screens. The constant and unrelenting exposure has an effect, not only on our eyes but can have numerous other consequences such as disrupted sleep, headaches and so on. A recent study has shown that supplementation with macular carotenoids improved sleep quality and improved vision.* The benefits include improved contrast sensitivity, decreased glare and improved photostress recovery.* Subjects has fewer headaches, with less eyestrain and eye fatigue.* This study was conducted on young healthy adults who had a high exposure to “screen time” more than 6 hours per day.

Blue Light
Blue light is a part of natural daylight. It is an important part of the visible light spectrum. It is really the artificial exposure to excessive blue light through modern devices that is a big part of the problem. So it’s not that blue light is bad. It is how much blue light are we getting and how does that affect each of us as individuals? For example, do you have any of the problems that were addressed in the studies? Do you have ongoing and excessive exposure to digital screens? If so then, the studies would be relevant to you and lead you to consider nutritional support. Commit to taking a quality supplement for 3 months and then judge for yourself. 

Carotenoids
Carotenoids, also called tetraterpenoids, are organic pigments that are produced by plants and algae, as well as several bacteria and fungi. Carotenoids produce the vibrant colors found in many vegetables. The most well known carotenoid is arguably beta-carotene. Another notable carotenoid is lycopene found in tomatoes and watermelon.

In this interview with Anthony Thomas, we are discussing what are called “macular carotenoids”. Studies have shown that increasing the consumption of macular carotenoids significantly improved serum levels with the benefits as noted above. The macular carotenoids are lutein, zeaxanthin, and mesozeaxanthin. We will also consider the benefits of astaxanthin. In this discussion we will consider the benefits of trademarked, branded, clinically studied nutrients. You must always look for quality ingredients in your supplement. We will consider Lutemax 2020 lutein, Omnixan RR-zeaxanthin, and AstaPure astaxanthin. You can learn more about these nutrients by going to their respective web pages.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are not produced by the body and their specialized locations and functions emphasize the need to consume all three macular carotenoids through diet or supplementation. Lutein and RR-zeaxanthin are found in dark green leafy vegetables and yellow to orange fruits and vegetables, while RS-zeaxanthin is found in fish such as salmon, sardine and trout.

Lutemax 2020® is a naturally-derived marigold extract providing all three macular carotenoids—lutein and enhanced levels of both zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin)—at the same 5:1 ratio as found in nature to optimally support eye health. 

OmniXan® zeaxanthin is one of the three principle carotenoids in the eye and supports eye health and visual function as a potent antioxidant and protector of lipid membranes against singlet oxygen and free radicals. RR-zeaxanthin works synergistically with the other macular carotenoids to absorb a broader spectrum of high-energy blue light to protect against photo-induced oxidative damage.

AstaPure® Astaxanthin Complex, a carotenoid antioxidant complex offering multiple health benefits.  Natural astaxanthin extract from Haematococcus pluvialis (H. Pluvialis) microalgae is great for supporting antioxidant levels and protecting against free radicals. n addition to its direct antioxidant capacity, astaxanthin also offers indirect antioxidant actions by up-regulating the activity of antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase, thereby offering unprecedented benefits in support of antioxidant defence systems.

Macula Formula
Jarrow Macula Protective Factors™ is a synergistic combination of three key carotenoids to protect the eyes’ maculae against oxidative stress, blue light from all types of screens, LED lighting and the sun.* The macula is responsible for focus and color differentiation. This formula has 20 mg. lutein, 10 mg. of meso-zeaxanthin and 4 mg. of astaxanthin per 1 softgel serving using only trademarked branded ingredients.

288 – The Nutritional Power of Green Foods – My Interview with James LaValle

Greens and sprouted foods have been a part of the human diet for thousands of years. The animals consumed for food also consumed green grasses and leaves. The insects consumed green plants. In the ocean, krill eat green algae, sardines eat krill and so on up the food chain. It all starts with energy from the sun becoming plants on the land and algae in the ocean. These greens eventually become the omega-3 fatty acids that are so important. This is one reason why grass fed beef is better than grain fed beef.  It’s one reason why wild ocean fish are better than farm raised fish. It’s one reason why we are encouraged to eat green foods.

287 – The Healing Power of Topical Silver Gel – My Interview with Dr. Robert MacCuspie

I love Sovereign Silver First Aid Gel. We have used Sovereign Silver products in my home for nearly twenty years. It is the only silver product I use and the only one I recommend. This is one case where there is no other silver that I know of that meets this high standard. Most companies that sell silver products do not manufacture their own silver products. They are made by some other company. So you have to dig deep to compare silver products. Sovereign Silver has done the analysis of virtually every other silver product in the marketplace and you can literally see the difference. You can review all of this at the Sovereign Silver website.

286 – Nutrition for Your Brain – Part 2 – My Interview with Neil E. Levin

In this interview with Neil E. Levin, we are looking at nutrients that can influence mood, stress, sleep and tension issues. We are also considering nutrients for memory, brain acuity and concentration. There are often multiple factors occurring at the same time. If you have everyday stress in your life, you may not be sleeping well. If you don’t sleep well, it’s hard to restore your brain and this may affect your mood. This could lead to nervousness. Any of these can affect your quality of life.

285 – Coenzyme B-Complex for Energy – My Interview with Dr. Audrey Ross

In this interview with Dr. Audrey Ross, ND, we will discuss the importance of B-vitamins in human health. We will also discuss the newer forms of B-vitamins known as Coenzyme B-vitamins. Dr. Ross will also discuss several nutrients that are surprisingly also forms of B-vitamins. This is a good example of making distinctions in the marketplace. Many companies don’t use any of the newer forms of nutrients. Country Life Vitamins uses all 7 of the currently available Coenzyme forms of B-vitamins and was one of the first companies to develop a Coenzyme B-complex supplement.  This is why I wanted to speak with Dr. Ross about the role of B-vitamins and the importance of Coenzyme B-vitamins.

284 – Build Stronger Bones, Hair, Skin and Nails – My Interview with Peter D. Josling

There has been a huge growing interest in collagen supplements and with good reason. Your cells exist in a collagen medium. Collagen provide the supporting structure for tissue throughout the body. This is most easily observed in bone, skin, hair and nails. These are obvious points where collagen deficiency can be seen. These are also the areas where the research has revealed very specific effects. But don’t lose sight of the fact that if collagen is deficient in the obvious tissues of the body, then this deficiency exists throughout the body. Improvements in skin, hair and nails can be considered a sign that collagen status is improving throughout the body. For example, blood vessels need collagen for support and repair. OSA stimulates collagen production in the body.

281 – The Power of Dr. Ohhira’s Fermented Probiotics – My Interview with Ross Pelton

We have discussed probiotics many times here on HealthQuestPodcast.com. We all now understand that probiotics exert an important and powerful effect on human health. We also understand that humans have been consuming fermented foods for thousands of years. The advent of refrigeration and food processing has resulted in less fermented foods in the diet giving us less beneficial bacteria. One solution to this lack of beneficial probiotic rich foods is to consume probiotic supplements.
