In our quest for a natural cure for eczema – I’m going to start with “the moral of the story”. I’m about 40 years old, and people of my generation can remember a time when swimming in Lake Eire was a past time, not a death wish. I mean, when did every one all of a sudden start getting sick? As kids, we would play in the barn with the animals around all the manure and never get sick. Just hose us down and we were off to the city dump to play king of the hill. Point being, our bodies aren’t as strong as they were just a few decades ago.
All right, back to eczema. Fact is that science has not found a cause or cure for it. They do agree that it is hereditary though, in that if the parents suffered from allergies, the child will be very prone to all sorts of allergies – including eczema. It all boils down to the immune system breaking down. Not to turn this into a drug company conspiracy, but Americas have a fascination with a quick fix for whatever is ailing us and have created a downward spiral of deteriorating health, taking a pill to treat the symptoms while skipping over the root problems.
In order to find a natural cure for eczema we must look at healing our very cell structure, beginning with the immune system. When the immune system is not working proper, any allergen like pollen or ragweed can bring on a full blown outbreak. First and foremost we need to get an abundance of Omega 3 oils (like flaxoil and fish oil) back into out diet. Also knows as fatty acids, these have been know to lower cholesterol, regulate heartbeat, thin the blood, and thereby lessening the risk of heart disease. Green juice / wheatgrass juice has been credited with cleansing the lymph system, strengthening the blood, restoring balance in the body, removing toxics from the cells, and nourishing the liver and kidneys. Hydro- and hydrothermal therapy (ionized water instead of tap), various herbal tonics, and vital nutrients.
Years and years of pollutants are going to need to be removed. This is a major task and could take years as well. The body as a whole is a self mending machine. It wants to repair itself. But after being subjected to countless poisons over the years it WILL revolt. This is known as the ‘healing crisis’. While the body is detoxifying, the weaknesses that the body has developed will re-manifest while it is adjusting. Some times even worse then ever before. While you may feel worse before you feel better, it is critical that you don’t give into the same ‘relief medications’ that contributed to your weakened immune system in the first place.
Notice how we are not fighting the eczema directly? We are mending the body to so that it can take care of it’s self again. Maybe I shouldn’t even have titled this article “Natural Cure for Eczema” – because it goes so much deeper then that. Then again, the very steps that need to be taken to rid your self of eczema will end up reversing health problems you didn’t even know you had. We need to look at the big picture.
Side note: A term you should look into is ‘urotherapy‘. And it’s exactly what it sounds like, the science of using urine for healing. When you realize that urine is the result of blood filtration, not waist filtration, we start finding products being discarded that the body really needs like vital nutrients, hormones, critical antibodies and enzymes that cannot be duplicated in any lab. A urine sample is as original as a finger print. It is relatively a new science, but has been used to cure curtain cancers, heart disease, auto-immune diseases, diabetes, asthma, allergies, infertility, infections, so on and do forth. I.E. a natural cure for eczema and many other skin ailments (which all begin from the inside anyway).
A very interesting study.
The whole concept of a natural cure for eczema is far too large to cover in this amount of space, but I hope I have given you some food for thought. The point that I want to make is this… You can’t cure eczema, you can repair the immune system, and that in turn will eliminate it. Fix the foundation, and the house will stand strong.
