Let’s talk about how to resolve eczema. To effectively treat eczema, which is an inflammatory skin issue, we first want to understand the cause of the skin inflammation and eruption. Once we understand the cause and take steps to eliminate the triggers and heal the skin, the cycle of skin eruptions will end. Food allergies and intolerances tend to be a common cause of eczema. It is easy to identify food allergies and intolerances with an Elisa blood test or by following an elimination reintroduction diet protocol. We also want to explore adrenal.
Gland insufficiency as a trigger of eczema flareups. The adrenal glands make cortisol, which is an antiinflammatory hormone. When we have been chronically stressed, either physically or emotionally, our cortisol levels tend to be suppressed. Suppressed cortisol levels leave us susceptible to many types of inflammatory conditions, including inflammatory skin issues like eczema. During a flareup of eczema, we can promote skin healing when we address the cause of the skin inflammation associated with the flare up. Since food intolerances are often a cause of eczema, we’ll start by removing triggering foods from the diet.
We’ll also give the body a concentrated dose of nutrients that alleviate inflammation and support skin healing. Some nutrients that are extremely helpful in skin healing and inflammation modulation include essential fatty acids like evening primrose oil and fish oil, vitamin A, probiotics and zinc.
