Hepatobillary Problems

The most common cause of dark circles under the eyes are hereditary. i.e. runs in the family. Unfortunately, in these cases diet and a healthy lifestyle will not remove the symptoms completely, although it can help them from becoming darker. It is important to avoid sun exposure and use sunblock. The traditional cumber or cold tea bag can help with puffiness. You can also visit our WellSpa where one of our skin care therapists can offer further advice on products that can help lighten the skin colour or conceal the dark circles. Regards Dr Sean Gomes

Sorry to hear about your granddaughter. I have not come across too much of direct information regarding pediatric liver support groups in South Africa. However, I hope the following links will be able to assist you:
This is a nice link to follow to learn more about paediatric liver transplants:
I would suggest you contact the SA Paediatric society who will probably be able to assist you in this regard:
You will also be able to access more information and support from Red Cross Children’s Memorial Hospital based in Cape Town.
I have come across this site based in the UK that seems to have a lot support in place for families pre and post liver transplant:
It should at least assist you in a virtual support basis over the internet.
Another good link would be :

Taking zinc supplements at high doses of more than 100mg for a long period is detrimental to one’s health as it can depress the immune system. A long period would be more than six months of high-dose supplementation.

High doses of zinc supplementation also decreases the absorption of iron and copper in the body which are needed for the production of haemoglobin & oxygenation of red blood cells (iron) and for the formation of bone, haemoglobin and red blood cells (copper).

Dry skin is a common problem during winter faced by people of all ages. As the temperature goes down during winter, the environmental humidity deceases and this leads to the dryness of the skin. Avoid over heated rooms for long periods.

I am not sure what the composition of the aqueous cream you are using but I would recommend avoiding the ones which are petrochemical based. This can be toxic to the system. Most of our ranges in our Spa are essential oil based and this would be a better option. Applying organic coconut oil is also a good option. Also, avoid harsh soaps that can lead to dryness of the skin even further.

You can use a good Aloe Gel cream. This help with the dryness. Putting a few drops of essential oils eg lavender into the bath will also be useful.

Taking omega oils internally is definitely a good idea. Since you are allergic to iodine I would not advise you to take a fish source but rather a plant source. Viridian makes an excellent product called Beauty Oil containing a combination of Omega 3 & 6 plant oils including flaxseed, Hemp, Avocado, evening primrose and pumpkin seed oil. These will help to strengthen skin cells and boost their moisture content.

I would also suggest a diet that supports healthy skin which includes a high nutrient food sources.Vitamins A, C, E, selenium and Zinc are important for skin health. Water is important to carry nutrients throughout the body and flush out toxins.

Exercise would be important as it will also improve blood flow to the skin.
