Everyone’s battle with eczema is different. It can be triggered by a variety of things like diet, stress, weather, or clothing. My biggest triggers were dairy and stress. Through months of research I discovered for the first time that dairy could even be a factor in my eczema troubles. No doctor had ever even mentioned it. I used steroid creams for years only to run back to the doctor for a stronger and stronger prescription because my body had built up a tolerance.
In 2005 I became so fed up with hiding my eczema, and being too embarrassed to be intimate or wear a swimsuit that I turned to the growing internet for answers. Hey, I told you it was 2005! It was then that I found out that our skin is our largest organ and that the breakdown of that organ is a sign of a nutritional deficiency. I brought this information to the attention of my sister who was also beginning a health journey of her own and also suffered from eczema. She gave me a book called “Lick The Sugar Habit” and it changed my life. This is a picture of my personal very utilized copy.
This book is key in understanding the root of many health problems in America which is sugar. It was monumental in opening my eyes to how much sugar I consumed in just one day and I was determined to conduct an experiment to avoid all sugar for one day. At that time it was damn near impossible. Having this knowledge made me look closer at nutrition and subsequently my eczema dramatically improved.
I avoided dairy and sugar for weeks! That meant no milk, cheese, bread (has sugar), breakfast cereals, soda, bottled juice and basically everything I was living on. I am proud to say I was so pleased with the results at that time that I never went back on steroid creams. There was no need. I learned what was causing my eczema and thereby learned to control it.
If I’m stressed or cheat on my dietary beliefs the result is a bit of eczema but over the years I’ve gained a few tips to help stamp it out. Below are 3 ways to get rid of eczema caused by a nutritional deficiency.
TRY THESE ECZEMA HEALING TIPS…
1 teaspoon of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water. I recently discovered this eczema remedy while trying to clear up a bit of acne. I drank the elixir on an empty stomach in the morning and again before bed. The acne was still there (that takes longer to get out of your system) but to my surprise the bit of eczema I had, probably from eating from the Mr. Softee ice cream truck, was healing by the second day! Facts.
DRINK GREEN JUICES!
A glass of green juice each day really gives my cells what it needs to regenerate and rebuild that broken down skin. The best green juice must be PACKED with greens with minimal fruit. I do Kale, Celery, Cucumber, apple, lemon and ginger. After a few days of this the small patches are no more. I must say that I may be getting quick results because in general I try to keep a clean diet but when I cheat I pay the price. I’m not perfect but I love myself enough to resist most of my temptations. It’s not just about vanity it’s about inner health. I use my Vitamix professional grade blender several times a day. It even makes hot soup in seconds! It’s so much more than a blender, really. It’s the best one out there.
The third way I clean up any eczema in a flash is by adding this awesome green powder to smoothies or even just plain water. Yeah, I’ve gotten to that level. The bitterness no longer effects me.
Markus Rothkrantz created Wild Force Green Formula and it has to be the best green powder on the market! I haven’t gotten the kind of results I’m getting with Wild Force when taking any other green powder. I’m talking tons of energy (not recommended before bed), increased focus and clarity, and not to mention I don’t feel hungry after consuming it because it’s providing an array of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that can only be found in wild plants.
I love this stuff and can’t say enough great things about it.
If you want to heal your eczema or a child that you know, first you’ve got to get rid of the bad stuff. Take it back to the basics. You will never see results without sacrifice. If you’re just starting out it could take weeks or even months. It doesn’t matter just put in the work! Fight for want you want. Love yourself and go against how you’ve been trained to think about food.
