Eczema affects approximately 15 million Americans. The ultimate cause of the condition remains a mystery, and there is no known cure. The pharmaceutical industry provides a number of prescription and over-the-counter medicines that are intended to help with eczema symptoms. However, side effects have been noted in many of these products, and the FDA has expressed concerns about eczema creams.
We recommend a more natural course of action that consists of attacking both the possible causes and the unpleasant symptoms of eczema.
Detox and Cleansing
While admittedly we do not know the exact cause of all types of eczema, studies have suggested a link between certain chemicals and eczema outbreaks. In our philosophy, toxins in the body are the root cause of all negative health conditions and need to be cleansed from the body in order for optimal health to be achieved. Organs like the colon, the liver, and the kidneys have evolved to do exactly this.
However, the body burden of over 700 contaminants that every human on the planet currently carries consists of many chemicals that the body has difficulty ridding itself of. As these chemicals build up in the body, the colon and liver can become overloaded.
When we consider how important these organs are, it makes since that detoxifying the liver and colon could help with eczema. Products like Oxy-Powder and Livatrex are safe, natural, and effective products that help these major organs function at optimal effectiveness.
It goes without saying that we should leave refined sugar and alcohol alone. These substances are not just bad for persons who suffer from eczema—they are just bad, period.
If you have eczema, it is a good idea to also minimize, if not eliminate, caffeine altogether. As a general principle of health, it is also a good idea to invest in air purifiers and water purifiers for the home, and to start developing an affordable diet of all natural foods.
Organic Herbs and Natural Products
We recommend that you be very cautious about using any medications that contain steroids. It is also important to pay attention to FDA concerns about some of the popular creams that actually repress the human immune system.
Instead, we recommend you turn to organic herbs that have been used for thousands of years in the treatment of skin conditions. We also encourage you to use all-natural, organic herbal derivatives such as O2-Zap when you need help with eczema outbreaks.
