Eczema Diet Secrets – Natural Eczema Treatment
Visit SiteHow To Eliminate Eczema Without The Use Of Steroids, "Miracle Creams" Or Any Bitter Medicine That Your Mum Makes You Drink
Are you stuck in an itch-scratch-itch cycle that goes on and on forever? The more you itch, the more you will scratch. And the more you scratch, the more you itch.
As a result, you suffer from constant deep stinging painful sensations of skin that is raw, red and inflammed.
The intensity of your itch probably gets worse at night. If you manage to sleep at all, you awake to find blood stains on your bedsheets after a night of assault on your skin the night before.
Because of all that itching and scratching, your skin now looks wrinkled and dry at some parts and weepy with pus at others. Obviously, you feel tired miserable, deeply depressed and terribly self conscious about your appearance. You may even have the awful experience of having people avoiding you as if you have got some contagious disease. It is natural to feel as if your life is condemned due to having an eczema condition.
The problem is that it is hard to stop yourself from scratching. Anything can set off and worsen your condition. Stress, dust mites, food, humidity and irritating fabrics to name a few. You end up in a frenzy scratching your body, unable to control yourself.
What can possibly worsen is that you now become more prone to getting an infection due to having open wounds. Viral, bacteria or fungal infections can cause your itch levels to reach astronomical heights. At this point, you’ve never looked more terrible. And your pain and desperation for an effective solution increases.
You would by now, have been using steroids to help you ease the inflammations and irritations. You may have bought them over the counter or have gotten a prescription for your eczema. Whatever it is, they can hardly be cures as your eczema outbreaks come back again and again.
With these experiences, it is easy to see that steroids are merely symptomatic treatments. They do not help you deal with the root cause of your problems. Additionally, long term reliance can produce plenty of side effects with using them.
Your desperation for a solution may also have led you to many creams promising miracle cures. Been sadly disappointed, aye? Same here. After spending a ton of money, I quickly found out that there is no such thing as a "miracle cure".
Then, of course, there is the newer range of topical medications which are essentially immunosuppressants. They have been marketed as safe as they are non steroid based. However, if you have been using these, you must be aware that this treatment poses risks. Immunosepressants acts by "suppressing" your immune response, thus reducing inflammation and the symptoms of eczema. However, you are exposing yourself to a number of diseases, including cancer, because your immune system is relatively weakened. There are now reported cases of cancer arising from the use of these medications and pending lawsuits against the big pharmaceutical companies responsible for manufactering them.
Oh yes….I definitely understand the pain and suffering from having eczema; afterall, I’ve got eczema for more than 30 years. And the picture that you saw right at the top of this site was taken of my legs at the height of my eczema outbreak.
I’ve always had eczema since young. I have lived with bleeding scars on my legs, from a case of mild to moderate eczema for most parts of my life. It didn’t dawn on me about finding out more about eczema on my own. Instead, I used corticosteroids or hydrocortisone creams everytime I had an outbreak which happened often. With the daily use of the cortisone cream during each outbreak and for many years, I started noticing how thin the skin on my legs looked, how I bruised instantly by simply pressing on the skin and how I tire easily.
However, nothing prepared me for the eczema outbreak I had in Yr 2007. From a small area on my legs, my eczema became worse and worse as I repeatedly fail to arrest the outbreak. The eczema on my legs became "weapy". It soon spread to many parts of my body, including my hands, neck and back. I could barely sleep for 6 months as I would wake up itching and scratching away.
Emotionally, I suffered. It was not just the physical torture. My self esteem plummetted. Despite assurances from my family, I refused to go out for months. You can imagine how depressed I was!
I did not want to rely on steroids. I tried all kinds of remedies and subjected my skin to various experiments. Fortunately, I had some basic knowledge about natural healing. I just needed to read and discover more.
I became convinced of the view that complete healing does not come from a jar. If you notice that your eczema cleared up quickly without you doing anything else, chances are that the cream that you are using contains steroids.
Then, from a naturopathic doctor, I found out that the hydrocortisone cream that I have been using all along had entered my body through my skin. Through years of use, I was slowly poisoning my liver. An unhealthy diet comprising of preserved, instant and processed foods did not help either.
I started researching more. I read books like Henry Bieler’s book, Food… Read more…
