Homeopathy and Eczema
Hi everyone, Theresa here. This is my personal blog about my search for a cure for eczema and and how I finally managed to beat my eczema naturally after so many long and painful years. I hope that it helps others who are suffering through the same pain and embarrassment that I did.
I’m 36 years old and have suffered from eczema ever since I can remember. I was officially diagnosed with the condition when I was about 2 years old. My eczema has always been quite severe and covered much of my body in a red, flaky, painful rash although the worst of it has always been on my hands.
Because of my severe eczema, my early childhood and adolescent years were completely miserable.
Besides the physical discomfort, my condition always made my life socially awkward. I felt like a leper and was excluded and teased by some of the other kids in school. Over time, I learned to accept others’ behavior towards me but always desperately wanted to find a cure.
Through my teen years and adulthood, I went through sooooo many tests and tried so many different medications but absolutely nothing worked. Sometimes I would get a little relief in the short term but then my eczema would always come back just as bad as ever. In desperation, I tried sleeping in oven mitts, slathering myself in baking oil (as weird as that sounds), using prescription creams….just about anything you could possibly think of. My doctor even prescribed me the steroid prednisone. Although it helped clear things up a little, my eczema eventually became even worse.
Homeopathy and Eczema – Finally a Cure that worked.
After years of taking different prescription medicines and trying lots of alternative therapies, I finally came across a book called “Eczema Free Forever”, which takes a holistic and homeopathic approach to the treatment of eczema. I was at the end of my rope and decided to download the book and give it a try. To my surprise, the book was packed with an incredible amount of information about eczema that I had never even heard of. Using the information in the book, I was able to completely cure my eczema naturally within about three weeks.
The first few chapters of the book describe and explains all of the common (and even less common) types of eczema with plenty of illustrations. It covers the causes and body systems involved and the allergens that play a role. The section on eczema and food was a real revelation for me. I had no idea that a major factor in healing eczema was to strengthen my immune system, and the early part of the book explains how to accomplish this through simple dietary changes.
Chapter 4 of the book really gets into the cure, beginning with a three day detox program, followed immediately by a special diet consisting of natural foods found in any grocery store. The ingredients in the diet are balanced by their Biocidic (0%), Biostatic (25%), Bioactive (50%) and Biogenic (25%) characteristics. Although this may sound complicated, the chapter includes a complete shopping list so there is no need to understand the meaning of these terms in order to get started. Suggested menus are even included and the meals are very tasty.
Chapter 5 covers many additional eczema cure tips and techniques. For example, I live in a dry climate and I discovered that using a humidifier in the winters can help cure eczema and prevent it from returning. Chapter 5 also includes a section on cures for children that aren’t diet based which would probably be helpful for those of you who are looking for a cure for a child who is fussy about diet.
Chapter 6 of Cure Eczema Forever gets further into the interrelation between homeopathy and eczema and is all about using natural, homeopathic supplements including probiotics, fish oils and evening primrose, as well as other natural supplements to cure eczema and keep it at bay. I found it particularly useful how the author explained things here very clearly and included exact instructions for use. Although I was somewhat familiar with homeopathy, I had no idea what some of the items were (like probiotics, for example), so the tips and instructions made shopping for them so much easier.
Chapter 7 of the book finishes with the author’s concluding remarks and words of encouragement as well as additional facts and information about how to follow the program and a summary of the steps to be taken.
Within just seven days of starting the treatments prescribed in the book, I noticed significant relief and within three weeks my symptoms were gone completely, all without prescription drugs or further trips to the dermatologist. To me, it’s been a total god send and feels like a miracle. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Yours in health,
