Hi! Doc

My sixteen year old daughter suffers from extreme, under-eye
dark circles and sinus which seems to get worse the week
before her period. Her eyes are constantly red & itchy. She's forever sniffing and blowing her nose. She is using milk thistle drops for the past year (but it hasn't helped)and I am trying to change her eating patterns. She loves chocolates & yogurt. I've made an appointment with a a homeopath for her on Saturday 22 July, but is there anything else she can use in the meantime to alleviate these symptoms. Other than that she appears to be fine, but lethargic and extremely moody before her period! and of course at her age, the dark circles are a real embarrassing nightmare!

Would appreciate your help!
Sincere Regards & Thank you for all your fantastic advice and expertise on this site. I've learnt to much.

Got message only today. Her dark circles are most likely related to allergies. She should avoid dairy, wheat and sweets as these could be the main culprits. The homoepath will increase her constitution and let her body deal with the allergies.
