THIS IS THE REASON OF THE ECZEMA FLARE-UPS AND HOW TO TREAT THEM NATURALLY!!!
Eczema is a condition of the skin which causes irritation and blisters on the skin. It can be cured, and what you need to do is change your diet, eat clean, take the right nutrients, and do green juice detox on a regular basis. Doing this will stop the flare-ups. The most usual treatments for eczema involve applying steroid creams and similar ointments on the skin. However, this is only a temporary solution, and does not solve the root cause. Nevertheless, there are a number of ways to treat eczema naturally, without using commercial products. Finding out the root cause of eczema and the reason you cannot eliminate it is very important.
Symptoms of eczema include:
- Dry, sensitive skin
- Intense itching
- Red, inflamed skin
- Recurring rash
- Scaly areas
- Rough, leathery patches
- Oozing or crusting
- Areas of swelling
- Dark colored patches of skin
Eczema is a general term for any type of dermatitis or “itchy rash”. There are several skin diseases that are eczemas, yet all types of eczema cause itching, redness and some will blister or peel.
Here are some of the most common eczema types:
- Atopic Dermatitis
- Hand Eczema
- Contact Dermatitis
- Seborrheic Dermatitis
- Dyshidrotic Eczema
- Nummular Eczema
- Stasis Dermatitis
How to Get Rid of Eczema?
Of course, once diet has been addressed, there are some things that can be used topically to speed healing or limit discomfort during the healing time. For us, these things were helpful:
- Change Your Diet and Eliminate Processed Foods
Food is very important, bad eating habits, wrong combinations, eating foods which lack in nutrients, consuming very processed foods, eating foods high in sugar and fats, foods low in fiber increase the risk of leaky gut. You need to eat whole foods which are abundant in beneficial fatty acids and which are high in fiber. Eat legumes, whole grains, seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Make sure to drink one or two glasses of green juices on a daily basis. Bone broth is very beneficial for leaky gut. Consume foods which are high in fiber. Eat a bowl of oats for breakfast every morning and this will clean your digestive tract.
- Coconut Oil
I use coconut oil for everything. It is one of the things that would absolutely be on my list in a you-are-going-to-an-island-and-can-only-bring-five-things type situation. We use it for skin, hair, teeth, health and even soap making at our house, but it is also great for eczema. I’ve found that for us, a thin layer of coconut oil or a coconut oil lotion bar helps cool eczema itching and pain. For those sensitive to coconut oil, these hypoallergenic lotion bars work really well too.
- Sea Spray
For eczema that is wet/oozing, I’ve found that drying it works better than trying to moisturize it and offers relief. For this, we use a homemade salt and magnesium spray. I’ve often heard people with skin problems say that they felt better at the beach, and it makes sense. Between the Vitamin D, the magnesium and the minerals in the water, the beach is great for skin health. For those who don’t live near the ocean, this homemade spray can help achieve some of the same benefits at home.
- Trillium Organics Body Oil
Some people think the organic body oil from Trillium Organics is a big help for their eczema symptoms. It’s a fast-absorbing, light, after-bath oil for moisturizing. It contains many beneficial oils for your skin.
- Salt Baths
An article on bath salts published in the International Journal of Dermatology reports that “skin roughness and redness of the skin as a marker for inflammation were significantly reduced after bathing in the salt solution. This demonstrates that bathing in the salt solution was well tolerated, improved skin barrier function, enhanced stratum corneum hydration, and reduced skin roughness and inflammation.”
- Aloe Vera + Vitamin E:
Pure Aloe Vera extracted from the leaf of certified organic plants is one of the most effective skin soothers in nature. It conditions and hydrates dry and rough skin on contact. Vitamin E’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may also help relieve eczema when applied topically.
