10 Steps to

Eczema Secrets / Eczema Solutions

We are all different, and the key to your quest for eczema solutions is a willingness to try various treatments until you find what works best for you. I trust that you will find the following guidelines helpful and informative.

Eczema is an inflammation of the skin, usually associated with blisters, thickening, crusting, scaling and itching. There are different types of eczema depending on their causes, and where they occur on the body.

Common causes of eczema are allergies secondary to digestive disorders, immune deficiencies, genetic metabolic disorders such as the inability to produce GLA-gamma linoleic acid, a key component in the structure of cell membranes and nutritional deficiencies such as B vitamins (especially niacin and vitamin B6).

Eczema  solutions require a consistent approach. Also remember that any program may take months to show improvement, so be patient. Continue treatment even during times of remission when no lesions are visible. You see, the problem is still there, just waiting for a trigger. The following steps will help you not only prevent eczema attacks, but minimize their severity

          Here is what you do...

1.  Sensitivity to gluten is common, and many people suffering from skin disorders do better if they avoid foods containing gluten. Follow a gluten-free diet for 6 weeks. Then add gluten containing foods back to your diet one at a time, but do not eat gluten containing foods more often than once every four days.  You will find an excellent source of gluten-free diets and products at the Celiac Disease and Gluten Free Resource Center.

2.  Other problem foods you'll want to avoid are dairy products, foods containing raw eggs, fried foods and processed foods. Eating a lot of fruit, especially citrus and sour fruit, may aggravate your symptoms.

3.  Vitamin B complex is needed for healthy skin. Use a high-stress, yeast-free formula. Take 100mg three times daily with meals. You will want to take extras of the following B vitamins as well. Vitamin B3 (niacin) - important for proper circulation and healthy skin. Take 100mg three times daily. Do not exceed this amount, and do not take Niacin if you have a liver disorder, gout or high blood pressure. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) - deficiency has been linked to skin disorders. Take 50mg three times daily. Vitamin B12 - is important in cell formation and in longevity of the cell. Take 200mcg daily. Use a sublingual form.

4.  Other helpful vitamins are Vitamin A helps to prevent dryness, and promotes the development of smooth skin. Using an emulsion form is safer at high doses,and makes it easier to assimilate. Take 100,000 IU daily for one month, then 50,000 IU daily for two weeks, then 25,000 IU daily. CAUTION:  Don't take more than 10,000 IU daily if you are pregnant.

 Vitamin E - helps to relieve dryness and itching. Take 400 IU daily.

Zinc boosts your immune system, and is helpful in healing. Take 100mg daily

Biotin deficiency has been linked to eczema. Take 300mg daily.

7  Because you may be unable to produce GLA-gamma linoleic acid, taking Evening Primrose Oil may prove especially helpful.  Take 500mg daily. Evening primrose oil applied directly to cracks and sore areas of your skin may also give you soothing relief and promote healing. NOTE: Women suffering from breast cancer should limit their use of evening primrose oil. Black currant seed oil is a good substitute. Other good sources of the essential fatty acid gamma linoleic acid are flaxseed oil and salmon oil.

8.  Shark cartilage reduces inflammation in eczema. Take 1gm per 15 lbs of body weight daily, divided into three doses.

9.  Amino acids are essential in making proteins, the building block for growth and repair of all tissues. Use a formula containing both essential and nonessential amino acids. Take as directed on the label.

10.  Moisturize - as skin prone to eczema tends to be dry. Moisturizing is particularly important during the winter months, when eczema tends to flare up because of the dry, cold air.
