Want natural treatment options for eczema? Take a look at our top five tips.
We love helping out our customers here in the NaturalCures office, which is why when a member contacted us via our forum to ask us for natural treatment options for her eczema, we were on the case immediately.
An inflammation of the skin associated with blisters, red bumps, swelling, oozing, scaling, crusting and itching, eczema affects children and adults and can be caused by anything from the environment – house dust mites, allergies, pet fur and pollen, for example – to hereditary factors.
The good news is eczema can be treated naturally in a variety of ways; here’s our guide to the top five:
- Start from the inside and choose an organic, whole foods diet and avoid potentially allergy-causing foods like wheat, sugar, milk and dairy products. Try to avoid excessive consumption of fruit (especially citrus and sour, as these foods have been known to aggravate symptoms.
- Supplement your diet with Vitamin E, which is known to be a key factor in alleviating eczema, and try Vitamin A and GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) an omega-6 essential fatty acid found in high quantities in evening primrose oil. Both have shown to improve the conditions of eczema. Look into additional supplements, too. Try vitamin B complex, as well as vitamin B6, magnesium and zinc.
- Topical treatments can often work just as well as oral supplements. Allicin Gel can be applied to the affected area twice a day, once in the morning and once at midday. Alternatively, take a look at Terrasil Max and apply at night.
- Consult a licensed Ayurvedic practitioner who may recommend a number of treatments which can help ease your symptoms. Look into Alsi (Linum usitatissimum) linseed, an oil of the linseed, which can be mixed with an equal amount of lime juice and applied on the inflamed region. Also take a look at Palasha (Butea monosperma); the seeds can be ground, mixed with lemon juice and applied directly to the skin.
- Try not to discount traditional Chinese medicine as an option. The therapeutic principle of this centuries-old technique is to clear away pathogenic heat and remove dampness; a practitioner may recommend honeysuckle flower, dittany bark, coix seed and a range of other useful treatments. Acupuncture can also help ease your symptoms; find out more via our full eczema cure online (https://naturalcures.com/find-a-cure/761-eczema)
