Nutrition and Eczema
.....to take a look at your daily eating habits. Keep a food log for a week or two and see how often you eat some of the "big trigger" foods. If you find that you are a heavy dairy eater, or if you have a lot of yeasty breads in your diet, you should try an elimination diet to see if your eczema improves. These are only two of many examples of common triggers. Finding and avoiding your individual triggers will allow your body to heal itself of the eczema without continual use of medications and lotions. You may also notice other benefits from your adjusted diet such as higher energy levels, a clearer mind, even weight loss. Our skin is our biggest organ and it provides us great protection for the rest of our body. It often times is the first organ to tell us something is going wrong. If you listen to and act on the "whispers" of your body, you just may avoid the "shouts" of a more serious illness later on. If this is something you have struggled with and you want some support in making changes, the practitioners here at the IFMC are happy to help you find your way to better health.
