NHS46: Skin Problems Start Inside You28.02.2013
by Life Enthusiast Staff
And That's Where to Begin Healing Them
When the inside of you - your digestive system - is in good order, skin issues diminish.
Did you ever have a long-term maddening itch that is so intense (especially at night) that you damage your skin with incessant scratching? If so, you've likely experienced the miseries of eczema, psoriasis or other types of dermatitis.
These inflammatory conditions of the skin are slightly different conditions, but the terms are often used generically for any itchy, red, scaly skin problem. They can occur at any time in a person's life, often beginning in infancy and may sometimes continue for decades. Most of them manifest as painful swelling and oozing of the skin, bleeding cracks, severe scaling, itching and burning. Some sufferers have described eczema as "the itch that rashes" and others say when they sweat, it feels as though acid is being poured on them.
You can learn more here about the skin conditions "Eczema and Psoriasis".
Scratching that breaks your skin will increase the risk of infection. Long-term scratching can cause your skin to become thick and leathery. Not very attractive.
While psoriasis is most often linked with external allergic triggers, eczema is often caused by food allergies. The most common allergens include diary products, wheat, nuts, seafood, eggs and some fruits, such as strawberries.
Both conditions are often associated with food intolerances and multiple chemical sensitivities. If you have been regularly reading my articles, this will likely ring a bell, since food intolerances and multiple chemical sensitivities are often the result of an imbalance of intestinal flora that causes yeast overgrowth. This is sometimes accompanied with widespread systemic effects. This can be reversed with Probiotic Supplements.
Eczema can be "cured" but psoriasis is a multifaceted disease that requires a multi-treatment approach. This is daunting for most people.
Natural treatment begins with detoxification, especially for psoriasis. Saunas, exercise that makes you sweat, bowel, liver and kidney cleansing and removal of mercury amalgams in your teeth are all important considerations. Stress reduction is also an essential part of dealing with skin conditions.
It's often said you wear your heart on your sleeve. You also wear your emotions on your skin.
The above are excerpts from an article written by Dr. Carolyn Dean, an expert in inflammatory conditions that afflict so many.
The help that she suggests includes bowel and liver cleanse, mineral and phytonutrient supplementation, plus natural omega-3 rich oils
To your health!
