Easy Guide about Eczema For Beginners

So you’ve got eczema. Well, welcome to the club. This Blog is a lifesaver! Here’s everything I know, concisely written for you.

The research is fairly sparse at this time, and most of it is speculative. Let’s face it: Not a lot of money is going into eczema research.

However, some doctors believe that eczema is an autoimmune disease. More specifically, eczema is caused by an overabundance of the Th2 cells, whereas other autoimmune diseases may be caused by an imbalance of other Th cells, such as the Th1 cells, the Th3, the Th4, etc.

For those not born with eczema, it may be triggered later in life by stress, surgery, mental illness, meningitis, and/or other catalysts that are known to weaken the immune system.

People who develop one autoimmune disease are naturally susceptible to developing several more as time progresses, as they all have a common cause. (See next paragraph.) In fact, I have four autoimmune diseases: eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic sinusitis, and chronic shingles. This phenomenon is called co-morbidity.

But rest assured, for we do know all of these diseases are caused by the exact same thing: inflammation. Inflammation happens when the immune system attacks healthy cells that it mistakes for unhealthy cells like viruses, bacteria, cancer, etc.

It would follow, then, that the key to keeping eczema and other inflammatory diseases under control is to reduce inflammation as much as possible. There are several ways to do this, and they must all be done in conjunction with one another for greatest success:

  1. Eliminate inflammatory foods from the diet (dairy, gluten, peanuts, nightshades, citrus fruit, etc.).
  2. Add anti-inflammatory foods to the diet (berries, pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, ginger, garlic, etc.).
  3. Keep the immediate environment clear of possible allergens by changing bedsheets frequently, showering twice daily, taking antihistamines (like Claritin, which is non-drowsy and available without a prescription), replacing air filters regularly, and switching to hypoallergenic soaps, shampoos, and detergents, among other things.
  4. Eliminate stress by meditating, going for long walks, reading a book, or exercising.

The key to reversing eczema, obviously, is to reset the immune system. The big question is: How do we do that?

Personally, I’m going to try the Keto Diet. Maybe it’s not the answer, but the doctors at the renowned The Cleveland Clinic put my severely epileptic cousin on the diet “to reset his brain,” and it worked. In a matter of a few months, he went from over a hundred seizures a day to zero. Since the immune system is controlled by the brain, maybe.... just maybe...
