Did you know that if you or your kids suffer from eczema, there are solutions that can get at the root of the problem, rather than just treating symptoms?
Not only is there a way to treat eczema from the inside out, but it doesn’t involve steroids, petroleum-based lotions, antihistamines or desperate miracle cures?
If you suffer from an eczema rash, which often includes having itchy skin that you just can’t stop scratching, even though you know that it only makes a bad situation worse, you have probably already tried all the conventional methods for relieving symptoms.
They may work for a while to clear up your skin, but for most people they do not work long-term and the disease returns. The basic reason for this is because conventional medicine seeks to alleviate symptoms, but doesn’t address any of the root causes of eczema in the first place.
Emily Bartlett is a licensed acupuncturist and expert in Chinese medicine who has helped patients suffering from eczema in her practice. In The Eczema Cure, she uses her knowledge and expertise in order to provide a holistic treatment that may help anyone suffering from eczema.
What Does Eczema Have to Do with Digestion?
While wanting to stop itching and the appearance of a rash on your skin immediately is understandable, merely addressing symptoms, she says, is like “painting a rickety house”. In The Eczema Cure, Bartlett shows how you can stop wasting money on expensive creams, lotions and drugs in order to identify and heal the causes of eczema rather than just seek to alleviate symptoms.
Did you know that one of the common causes of eczema is related to poor digestion? Bartlett writes:
“Leaky Gut Syndrome is a condition where the lining of the small intestine is damaged. This allows incompletely digested nutrients, toxins, bacteria, and wastes to ‘leak’ through the intestines and flood the blood stream. The foreign substances entering the blood then cause an autoimmune response in the body, which leads to inflammatory and allergic reactions such as headaches, joint pain, psycho-emotional imbalance, respiratory issues and digestive problems, and skin conditions – like eczema.”
While often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all, she says that Leaky Gut Syndrome is most likely the cause of eczema in most individual cases, and provides ways to identify triggers, put out the fire (the immediate symptoms), strengthen defenses with probiotics and nutrients and heal your eczema with real food.
Why You Need This Book
If you or someone you love suffers from eczema, you will learn how to identify and avoid various triggers that may lead to eczema — such as your environment and the types of toxins you may be exposed to, various types of stress and how it impacts your body, and how improving your diet with real food can help heal eczema from the inside out.
In her discussion of defenses against eczema, Emily Bartlett discusses ways to lose the junk, which fats are good for you, how to make bone broth, render lard and the benefits of soaking and sprouting. Cultured foods, raw dairy and cleansing foods are also ingredients leading to better health and wellness, which are also beneficial in preventing or healing eczema.
She also not only offers several recipes, ranging from breakfasts and snacks to soups, main dishes and desserts, but also provides information on why the real foods used in her recipes are useful to you, and suggests ways of implementing them into your diet.
The Eczema Cure is not only useful in healing the skin disease for those who are suffering from its symptoms, thereby saving time and money on conventional treatments, but is also useful more generally with pertinent advice on being well.PAID ENDORSEMENT DISCLOSURE: In order for me to support my blogging activities, I may receive monetary compensation or other types of remuneration for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial and/or link to any products or services from this blog.
