Natural Treatment for Eczema
Eczema is a skin condition that causes itchy, red, and swollen patches of skin. The most common type is called atopic dermatitis. Everyday things in your environment — cigarette smoke, foods, pollen, and even your clothes — can cause eczema to flare. Identifying and avoiding your personal eczema trigger, or triggers, is an important part of your overall eczema treatment plan.
In my experience as a Naturopathic Doctor, I found that eczema has a lot to do with toxicity, especially in the GI tract, liver and colon.
Your terrain or internal environment is affected in many ways including diet and toxicity.
Research and clinical studies suggest food allergies identified by IgG testing can be a major contributing factor in many chronic health conditions including eczema. Dairy, gluten and eggs has been linked to a myriad of conditions including eczema.
Toxicity comes in many forms. The key to releasing these toxins and creating a healthier internal environment is through detoxing.
Other important considerations when it comes to skin is the use of essential fatty acids which can be found in fish oil supplements containing the omega 3 fatty acids.
Parasite, bacteria, fungus, candida are other causitive factors in eczema. Doing regular detoxification of these parasites is important.
Your skin is a particularly sensitive organ and is therefore easily adversely affected by the many unnatural things in our modern environment. Minimizing stress and adding moderate exercise has also proven to be effective. Eliminating chemically sprayed veggies and fruits, processed foods, refined sugars, and artificial sweeteners goes a long way toward reversing chronic, adverse health of any type, including skin conditions.
