Does anyone know what the relevance is between dark shadows (bags) under the eyes and general health. Is it symptomatic that something is not right? I have had bags for as long as I can remember and for a long time I was certain that it was due to my lifestyle. Now Iím not so sure. I spoke to my mother who is an Alexander teacher regarding this and then it dawned on me that ever since I was a kid I had the shadow under the eyes. What's going on? Am I to believe that my liver is just very sensitive?? As a child I was properly fed denied cola etc.. Is it a genetic thing? Do some people simply suffer from shadows? If itís build up of toxins, how do I go about finding out what I should not be consuming or should be consuming.

I have dark circles under my eyes, and tend to wear make up when I am in public to avoid people saying "you look tired." I have honestly found though, when I give up coffee completely---I mean completely, the dark circles go away and my overall skin tone is brighter. It's hard to do, but it works. Good luck.

I came back from travelling malnourished and anaemic, due in part to the parasites I acquired on the trip. I had bags and circles like you wouldnt believe...people forget that one of the symptoms of anaemia is dark circles/bags under the eyes. Often, paler skin and no energy etc are the only indications people look for. Although you are a male and it is less likely thn for a female, you may be iron deficient Dave, check it out- or just get a bottle of fera maka or flora liquid iron supplement and see if you notice a change after finishing a bottle (couple of teaspoons a day) The result was nothing short of fantastic with me. You might also want to check that you arent eating something or surrounded by something you have an allergy to or are sensitive to- these things are also sometimes responsible for the problem you describe. Last of all, some people have thinner skins and are naturally darker under the eyes-you can see it quite often in people of indian extraction (usually from south india). So, homeopathically I cannot help you here, but hopefully I have said something that you may find useful.

YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM PERI-ORBITAL HYPERPIGMENTATION.
EXACT CAUSE NOT KNOWN.
PROABLE CAUSES - OVERSTRAIN OF EYES, USE OF EYES IN DIM LIGHT, EXPOSURE TO SUN.
IN ADDITION, YOU HAVE A TENDENCY TO SKIN PIGMENTATION.
I HAVE HANDLED MULTIPLE SUCH CASES WITH REMARKABLE IMPROVEMENT.

The dark circles could be allergies, in fact I am willing to bet. What you crave or really love to eat you are probabley allergic to. I would have someone look in your ears if ear wax present this will confirm the allergy idea.

When you say coffee, do you also mean tea etc..

Perhaps I do need more Iron. I do feel very tired a lot of the time, sleep a lot and still feel tired, admitedly I do a job I care little for so it's hard for me to decide what is really at play. One thing for sure is that was not always like this... in fact recently I've been getting down more and more frequently it's really bugging me and I want to sort it quick. Somehow I feel that all of this is interlinked but fail to see how

What is Anaema? Would appreciate an answer on this

anaemia is an iron deficiency- many causes. Sometimes due to malabsorbtion (ie parasites or digestive problems) but also vegan and vegetarian diets can also be the cause. Tiredness, pale skin, bags/circles under the eyes, sometimes a sore/cracked tongue...you may be low in b-vitamins as well. An easy thing to do is to go to a health food store and buy either a liquid iron supp. or a bottle of iron pills and take until finished- you should notice some sort of difference in a matter of days- more energy! Yes, you can also see a homeopath but I think you should try the diet/supplements first in this case. Homeopathy is in the holistic health system which means complete or whole and complimentary systems...from your letter it sounds like diet is the key to begin here. One more thing, you say you are doing a job you do not care for. Barring quitting that and starting to live your life as you wish to, be aware that that sort of situation is rather stressful and can be responsible for a number of vitamin deficiencies. Stress eats vitamins different stresses eat different vitamins. If you are financially broke, you can perk up your iron by cooking with cast -iron fry pans. Good luck

My father's family all have these under-eye shadows. We are of Sicilian descent and we've always called it "Mediterranean anemia" but I wonder if this could be the symptom of an inherited miasm? I have the shadows but have never tested anemic.
