Dermatitis and Eczema...root cause diagnosis and natural cure
What is Eczema?
• There are more than 10 different types of eczema
• 15-20% of children are affected
• 38% of suffers are adults, usually with severe or persistent cases
Eczema can have a truly detrimental effect on your quality of life and can be difficult to treat. Currently, skin conditions account for 15% to 20% of a GP’s workload.
There are more than 10 different types of eczema. 15-20% of children are afflicted with it and 38% of sufferers are adults, usually with severe and persistent cases. Those who tend to develop eczema are categorised as being ‘atopic’ which means have an overactive immune system, causing their skin to easily become inflamed. Eczema can usually be managed with treatment and avoidance of triggers.
Typical eczema symptoms include:
• Dry skin which becomes itchy and inflamed
• Inflamed areas sometimes become blistered and weepy
• Inflamed areas sometimes become infected
Eczema and Diet
Despite overwhelming evidence of an association between eczema and diet very few sufferers are tested for food intolerance by their doctors. Everyone is unique, so it is difficult to determine which foods, or combinations of foods, are responsible for each individual’s condition.
If you are continuing to experience prolonged eczema symptoms which are recurring it may be a good opportunity to take a closer look at your diet.
As individuals, our reactions to foods and drinks we consume varies a great deal. An ingredient which may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another.
For those with eczema, discovering and understanding your own personal food and drink intolerances, and the effects they have on your health and wellbeing is important to ensure you make the best possible choices to optimize your diet and quality of life. Identifying and eliminating these specific foods from your diet can be an important step forward to reduce the inflammation of your skin.
Allergies can take many forms but when manifested as an inflammation of the skin, an allergic reaction is often diagnosed as dermatitis – better known as eczema.
The Orthodox Approach
Applying corticosteroids and/or other drugs to kill the micro-organisms is often helpful. Difficult though it may be, it is important to avoid scratching and, as far as possible, exposure to irritants such as detergents.
In the case of contact dermatitis, the rash is a reaction to some substance that comes into contact with the skin. It may be a direct toxic effect or an allergic response. People who cannot wear cheap earrings without getting sore ears are experiencing a form of contact dermatitis. The most common causes of irritant and allergic contact dermatitis are detergents, nickel (e.g. in bracelets, watch straps, necklaces, fasteners on underwear), chemicals (e.g. in rubber gloves and condoms), certain plants (e.g. ragweed), certain cosmetics and some medication in the form of creams, lotions, or drops. The rash may be treated with corticosteroid medication and, obviously, further contact with the cause of the rash should be avoided. IF the cause is not known, it may be possible to identify the offending substance using a Meta-Sync Health scan using kinesiology. See below
Photodermatitis occurs in those whose skin is abnormally sensitive to sunlight. The numerous people who complain of hear rash (itchy spots or blisters that appear in the sun or very hot weather) during their holidays are simply experiencing photodermatitis in its most basic form.
Orthodox treatment of dermatitis and eczema is geared towards suppression of symptoms, with little time or effort spent in isolating the cause. Provided your skin problem is not spreading rapidly, itching to the point of distraction, bleeding, or looking infected (with areas of pus or discharge), then treatment along a complementary line is your first step. Topical steroids may be stopped, but it is better to do this under the care of complementary practitioner.
The Health Transformer Approach
Toxicity is at the root of all skin disorders. Toxicity leads to leaky gut syndrome, which creates allergic reactions to substances and foods. It also sets your body into a chronic inflammatory state, which in the case of eczema this attacks the skin. Also implicated are both nutrition and stress. Toxins create a huge stress ion our body and play a role in precipitating eczema and other skin problems. The key to resolving eczema for good is to find the root cause and resolve it.
In every case of Eczema there is an underlying cause…something individual to each person. If at one time you didn’t have these symptoms and now you do, obviously something has changed within your body which has led to Eczema being produced. Eczema is merely a symptom of the underlying cause. To heal Eczema we need to address the cause. In this centre we specialize in root cause diagnosis of any health condition using our state of the art Meta Health Scan.
Meta Health Scan
The Meta Health Scan is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology. It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to your body, and how these are affecting you. The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities. We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut. Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Scan. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.

Once on the prescribed treatment, some clients choose to support their system with other therapies toastiest healing. This is not essential but will speed up your progress. These include…
In the main, acupuncturists associate eczema with exposure to heat, damp or wind. Treatment would therefore be based on counteracting the effects of these elements and trying to correct any blood or energy deficiencies that may result. Needles would be inserted along the meridians corresponding to the lungs, large intestine, spleen, and stomach. You could hope to see improvement and, in some cases, a total disappearance of the problem in four to eight sessions.
An acupuncturist may recommend a special diet that involves avoiding all alcoholic drinks, coffee, fats, and diary products. A nutritionist may also be involved in helping to work out a specific diet.
Essential Oils for Eczema
Essential oils of lavender and geranium can soothe and help heal the red, dry skin associated with eczema. Also, oils like melaleuca and myrrh are effective at healing eczema as well.
Hypnotherapy can be very helpful in treating eczema, particularly where it is stress-related. Often the physical condition disappears completely after a change in the patient’s mental attitude. Healing can also be effective, calming the mind and relieving physical symptoms.
Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT is a fast and effective way of dealing with emotional or psychological stress. It can also alleviate aggravating symptoms such as itch, pain and discomfort.
Top Foods for Eczema
- Essential fatty acids – Wild-caught fish and flaxseed oil can reduce eczema symptoms.
- Pumpkin or chia seeds – These seeds provide zinc which is essential for wound healing and for metabolizing fatty acids.
- Probiotic rich foods – Consume goat’s milk kefir and amasai. These are the highest probiotic foods and can support gut and immune health improving the cause of eczema.

- Vitamin A rich foods – Increase your intake of orange and yellow colored vegetables which are high in vitamin A, necessary for skin health.
