Over 10% of the US population has Eczema… and another 10% are unaware of it and undiagnosed.
Thus, almost 20% of people have gotten Eczema at some point in their life and deal with ongoing flare-ups.
And, these numbers have almost doubled in the past 2 decades.
Plus, it affects young and old… white, black, Asian, and Native Americans equally!
What Is It
Eczema is also called “atopic dermatitis”:
“Atopic” refers to the body’s increased sensitivity to allergens or irritants.
“Dermatitis” refers to inflamed skin.
Simply stated, Atopic dermatitis (eczema) causes the immune system to send inflammatory signals to the surface, which can lead to itching and rashes.
It Just Got Worse
It’s red, scaly, crusty, oozy, itchy, discolored and of course, uncomfortable and painful.
However, this isn’t just a “vanity” issue … it’s much worse.
The underlying issue or causes of Eczema is linked to numerous health problems.
- hair loss, pimples, and wrinkles — yup, more “vanity” issues.
- pain on your skin, in the muscles, joints, and poor mobility in your joints as well.
- long-term problems linked to the heart, brain, gut, and immunity.
The Real Cause
The bottom line cause of Eczema is inflammation.
Genetics and hormones are always major controlling factors for inflammation… as is stress, which negatively affects your hormones.
Of course, you can’t change your genetics… you can’t always control the stressors in your life.
What Can You Do?
However, you most definitely can make small changes in your lifestyle, to support a healthy inflammatory response, which will help reduce Eczema and painful flare-ups.
- Reduce omega 6 oils such as soybean, sunflower, and corn oil.
- Reduce processed foods, carbohydrates, and proteins.
- Have more wild-caught fish and fish oils, free-range chicken, pasture-raised red meat, and vegetable protein such as hemp.
- Fruits, vegetables, and avocados help lower inflammation.
- Daily walks, especially in the morning are also very helpful.
- Getting deep, quality sleep is vital.
- Taking herbal extracts such as curcumin, ginger, Boswellia, Green Tea, Pine Bark, Astragulas, Resveratrol, Quercetin, and a few others can help support a healthy inflammatory response.
I recommend Inflame & Pain Relief™, which contains all the above key ingredients, at the correct clinically proven dosages… and will help promote a healthy inflammatory response – thus, controlling the Eczema and flare-ups.
