Conjunctivitis is an infection that attacks the conjunctiva, which is the white part of the eye. The disease is caused by one of the four conditions [hotness, coldness, dryness, and wetness], or by the accumulation of hot flatulence in the head and body, that later reaches the eye and causes conjunctivitis. In addition, when the eye receives a hit, the blood, and the soul will rush to the aid of the affected eye, which then becomes swollen.
Unveiling the Intricacies of Ascending Moisture: Exploring its Effects on the Body
We should know that there are two types of moisture that ascend into the air. One is hot and dry and the other hot and wet. These moistures form the clouds that shade the sky from our eyes. Likewise, gaseous substances and moistures ascend from the stomach to the upper parts of the body and cause many ailments, such as conjunctivitis. When the body’s resistance is strong, it will push these gaseous substances to the nose and cause congestion that usually accompanies colds. When these substances are pushed up through the uvula and the nostrils, they cause angina. When these moistures are pushed towards the side, they cause pleurisy, and when they reach the chest they cause pneumonia. When the moistures reach the heart they cause rapid pulse, and when they reach the eyes they cause conjunctivitis. When they reach the intestinal cavity, they cause diarrhea and when they reach the brain they cause forgetfulness. If the brain receives excessive amounts of these gases, they might cause heavy sleep. This is why sleep is wet while being awake is dry. When the septic gases unsuccessfully seek to depart from the body through the head, they will cause headaches and less sleep. When these gases attack one side of the brain, they cause migraines. If these gases reach the cerebral divider and cause coldness, hotness, or wetness, it will cause sneezing. If the gases cause the accumulation of phlegm in the cerebral divider, so that its hot nature becomes weak, they cause unconsciousness and stroke. If the gases excite the black bile, they will cause obsession, and if they reach the nerves, they will cause real epilepsy. When the cerebral nerves receive these gases they will suffer from facial paralysis. If these gases are caused by inflamed yellow bile that heats the brain, they will cause cerebral tumors, and when the chest receives a part of these gases, they will cause pleurisy.
Unraveling the Unexpected Benefits of Conjunctivitis: A Natural Cleanse for Body and Mind
The body benefits from conjunctivitis because it helps the body extract harmful substances and cleanse the body and the head’s septic elements.

Preserving the Eye’s Wellness: Embracing Rest and Caution as the Key to Healing Conjunctivitis

Harnessing the Cooling Power of Water: The Prophet’s Healing Method for Conjunctivitis
Water is cold and thus cools down the heat that accompanies conjunctivitis. This is why when the wife of “Abdullah bin Mas’ud complained about her eyes, he said to her, “If you had done what the Prophet used to do, it would have been better for you and would have brought fast healing to your eyes. Splash water on your eyes and then say, ‘Cure the ailment, O Lord of the people! Bring about the cure, for You Alone bring the cure and there is no cure except that which you bring about. Bring a type of healing that eradicates every ailment,”
Applying Remedies with Care: Understanding the Context and Specificity of the Prophet’s Guidance
Remember these types of remedies are suitable for certain areas and for some ailments that attack the eye. Do not understand the Prophet’s statements that are specific to be general or vice versa. Otherwise, mistakes will certainly occur.
