Re: Reason for dark circles...

Possibly.  Are you asking for help with yeast overgrowth, worms or liver and/or kidney problems?  If not, here is something on dark circles:

Dark Circles Under Eyes


  • Aging

  • Allergic shiners

  • Allergies - dark circles under the eyes (Allergic shiners)

  • Black eye - bruising in the eye

  • Dehydration - dark rings around the eyes

  • Dust allergy

  • Dust mite allergies - dark circles under the eyes (Allergic shiners)

  • Eczema - allergic shiners (dark rings around the eyes)

  • Hay fever - dark circles under the eyes (Allergic shiners)

  • Inherited eye blood vessel condition - dark circles under the eyes run in families.

  • Mold allergies - dark circles under the eyes (Allergic shiners)

  • Mold allergy

  • Pallor - the paleness of the skin may accentuate the dark rings.

  • Persistent eye rubbing

  • Phenol sulfotransferase deficiency - dark circles under eyes

  • Sleep difficulty - see the many causes of sleep difficulty symptoms (e.g. stress, depression, sleep disorders, etc.).

Apply cool tea bags, an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth, or cucumber slices to your eyes daily. The tannin in tea bags has been shown to reduce swelling and discoloration, and cucumber slices have long been used to reduce puffiness and refresh the appearance of skin around the eyes. Lie down, preferably in the morning, and leave fresh cucumber slices or cool, damp caffeinated tea bags (you can refrigerate them overnight so they’ll be ready) over your eyes for about 10-15 minutes. Keep your eyes closed.

Apply an eye cream containing vitamin K and retinol. Dark circles may be caused by a deficiency of vitamin K. Regardless of the cause, however, recent research has shown that skin creams containing these two ingredients reduce puffiness and discoloration significantly in many patients. Long-term daily use seems to have the greatest effect.

Make a paste from a teaspoon of tomato juice, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, a pinch of turmeric powder and a pinch of gram flour. Apply under eyes for 10 minutes.

Apply cotton balls soaked in cucumber juice or potato juice around the eyes.

Rub castor oil around the eyes before going to bed, wash it off the next morning, works for both dark circles and puffy eyes

Apply a small amount of preparation h under eyes, wait 15 minutes and wipe off. An instant fix
