To my eczema warriors!
Today I’d like to give you a list of foods and how to prepare them that would be beneficial to eat with the intention of nourishing and healing skin to prevent eczema in winter. I often hear from my patients that their eczema worsens in the winter months due to the dryness from the cold temperatures outside and from turning on the heat in inside. Skin dryness signifies that the skin is not being nourished with the proper nutrients and thus the skin barrier to the outside environment weakens and the skin is subject to more irritants, weather changes, and eczema from internal detoxification issues.

Ten years ago my daughter Emily was born with eczema. Being an acupuncturist, I knew that using steroids on her tiny, infant body could be a very slippery slope, so I used my herbal training to make a simple herbal balm for her. It worked so well that I used it on my acupuncture patients with sensitive skin and eczema and it worked so well for their eczema treatments, that we launched Emily Skin Soothers. Now we have a whole line of eczema prevention soaps and balms that is sold all over the world, including through The Eczema Company. Read more

I want to share with you some tips that I offer to my patients to relieve the eczema itch, which can be very prominent, constant and so very irritating. The constant scratching and itchiness also prevents healing of the skin because of opening up pre-existing wounds and creating new scratches. As with any of my recommendations, please talk to your naturopath or healthcare provider who is open to alternative medicine. I hope that those with eczema can find relief with some soothing baths and a more nutritious approach to diet. Ultimately, treating the internal environment of the liver, digestive system, and nervous system will help to cure eczema for good! Read more

It can start with a cough; a seemingly insignificant wheeze expelled from the center of his tiny chest. What may be significant, however, could be a commonly overlooked factor.
