Eczema is an annoyance that shouldn’t be taken lightly. An estimated 30+ million in the U.S. are sufferers. It’s an auto-immune issue with deeper issues that all need attention and proper treatment. Recent research showed that interleukin-4 (IL-4) and interleukin-13 (IL-13), immune proteins, increase the body’s ability to fight off viruses and bacteria. But these proteins can mistakenly target the body’s own tissues, causing an autoimmune reaction called eczema. Most dermatologist will just prescribe some topical treatment without going deeper to get to the root cause. Many sufferers have no clue that it should be treated in a whole body approach since the skin is the largest organ for absorption and elimination. I’ve seen way too many newborns develop eczema as well as teens and adults just living with eczema and never getting to the root cause. It’s a complex condition that has many factors and unique to the individual. Diet and lifestyle factors can definitely contribute to the condition.
Let’s first turn to the core of health, the GUT! Antibiotics, steroids, birth by c-section and baby formula are all triggers that can start the vicious cycle of eczema. We must treat the condition from the inside out and not the other way around. Conventional medicine will treat from the outside so it may go away for awhile but unless you treat from the inside then it’s hard to win the battle.
Here’s some tried and proven natural remedies:
- Gotta look at diet and determine if there’s too much sugar and carbohydrates in your daily meals.
- You need to incorporate a quality probiotic into your daily regime. Healing the GI tract takes a few steps:
- Remove the bad: inflammatory foods, candida/bacterial overgrowth and parasites
- Replace the good: digestive enzymes improve digestion
- Reinoculate by adding quality probiotics (there are infant formulas all the way to elderly formulas)
- Repair GI tract with nutrients removing the toxic foods and beverages
- Reduce the candida overgrowth with food and supplement with Lauricidin pellets (start very slow dosage to avoid dye-off condition)
- Apply organic coconut oil to inflamed skin & you can ingest a teaspoon daily
- Take digestive enzymes with each meal to properly absorb the nutrients from your food to nourish your skin
- Take Vitamin D3 supplements to rejuvenate your skin cells; get some sunshine to absorb Vitamin D naturally
- Use organic and/or non-toxic soaps, body wash, lotions, laundry detergent and anything else that comes into contact with your skin or environment
- Eliminate all dairy products and reduce or eliminate gluten
- Get ample amount of sleep on daily basis to rest your body and heal
Being consistent with healthy lifestyle choices from food intake to supplementation is an integral part of beating eczema and boosting one’s immune system.
