Some Natural Ways of Treating Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis).

Eczema is a skin condition that may make the skin hot or cold, dry or suppurating.

Each type must be treated according to its symptoms and, depending on its severity may require more individual and specialized help.

It can be caused by food allergies and is likely to indicate inefficient digestion, particularly low levels of hydrochloric acid and pepsin, and a sluggish liver.

Stress will exacerbate the problem, as will a delicate nervous system.

How to handle eczema include;

  • Cold, scaly skin will best be helped by keeping to a diet of slow-cooked, warming foods, including grains and root vegetables, with additional warming ingredients such as cinnamon.
  • Wheat and dairy products are common problem foods but ensure that the soy foods and soy milk you substitute do not cause allergic reactions.
  • Drink lots of water daily.
  • Foods with oxalic acid can cause disturbances, so be aware of sources such as tomatoes, oranges, gooseberries, strawberries, and rhubarb.
  • Use virgin olive oil in cooking and raw on salads, the latter with apple cider vinegar; both are good for the skin.
  • Flaxseed oil (rich in omega-3 fatty acids) is a good supplement; also use evening primrose oil (GLA), for omega-6.
  • Immune- and nervous-system herbs will be an important olive leaf, echinacea root, chamomile flower, skullcap leaf, and a little lobelia leaf.
  • Digestive herbs like meadowsweet leaf and flower, blessed thistle leaf and flower, and aloe vera juice will be vital.
  • Use blood-cleansing herbs, such as a mixture of two parts burdock root, one part red clover flower, and one part dandelion root. Use eczema ointment.
  • The liver, bowel, and stomach all need attention in terms of function, cleansing, and support.
  • Destressing by dancing, exercising, and meditating is ideal.
