Natural Remedies for Eczema


Many people believe Eczema is purely a skin condition, but the problem is more than skin-deep.

An immune imbalance is the real culprit behind that red, itchy skin, and by finding your individual triggers, you can say goodbye to it for good.

Eczema – along with sinus, asthma and hayfever – is an allergic reaction that is often hereditary. Like with all allergies, it is triggered by your diet, stress and environment.

As you can see now, Eczema is the result of your immune system’s over-reaction to foods and chemicals it has come into contact with, not just a skin problem.

The reason why your immune system is over-reacting is linked to the health of your digestive tract and your balance of good bacteria in your gut. So to get to the bottom of your eczema, you need to start with fixing your gut and working out your triggers.

Diet

Diet is by far the most important part of treating eczema. In my experience, the most common offenders are dairy, wheat, eggs, nuts, seeds and soy products. By cutting out these foods, it will allow your immune system to calm down, and you should notice a reduction in the severity of your eczema within two weeks.

The most important natural medicines for someone suffering from eczema are:

  • A good-quality probiotic (Ultra Flora LGG) containing the lactobacillus rhamnosus strain to help rebalance your immune system.
  • Zinc encourages your skin to heal and helps to reduce itch.
  • Vitamin C is a natural anti-histamine to reduce your body’s allergic reaction.
  • Fish Oil contains essential Omega 3s to hydrate your skin from the inside out.
  • Vitamin D in the form of sun exposure or a supplement for its anti-inflammatory qualities.

Stress

Have you noticed that your eczema tends to flare up during times of high stress?

Like before an exam, speaking in public, or when you’re overloaded at work.

Research has shown that during times of stress, the level of inflammation in the skin rises for everyone. However, if you already have inflammation in your skin (as with eczema), stress will worsen your condition.

Environment

Dust, pollen, pollution, changes in temperature and even your own sweat can all trigger eczema. As can allergies to other things like dust mites, pets, mould and more. The list goes on! It’s worthwhile working out what your environmental triggers may be, so that you can reduce the load on your immune system.

3 simple steps to treating Eczema naturally:

  1. Find out your triggers – get tested for food allergies and intolerances, as well as environmental allergies.
  2. Avoid your triggers - limit your exposure to these allergies and intolerances to reduce the workload on your immune system.
  3. Re-balance your immune system by healing your gut. This is where we can help you – our live blood test is our best tool to determine your digestive health. From here we can recommend an individual plan to get you back on track.
