If you want to heal your skin, you have to heal your gut.....
There is NO quick fix for eczema. To reverse eczema you must address the causes of the disease. The causes of eczema usually relate to our nutritional history, and/or the toxic burden we are faced with from our foods and our living and working environments.
PLEASE...do NOT waste your time and money on any of the eczema remedy quick lotions and potions offered.
They simply do NOT work ever. Always remember that your skin is an expression of your gut. If you want to heal your skin, you have to heal your gut. Look at the underlying causes of eczema and how to address them with changes in your diet and lifestyle. Giving up processed foods is a "must", if you value good health. Only you can do that, only you can become your own best healer by applying the principles about eczema remedies.
How do I know what foods I am allergic to?
Consider an ALCAT food allergy test. Non-infectious skin diseases are usually caused by inflammation in the body. An Alcat (blood draw) test may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues related to skin disorders. Diet changes based on ALCAT testing show significant improvement changes up to 66%. Read more about the success of using the test results here:

Diet: Eat real, whole, healthy, organic food.
Eat mostly unprocessed foods. If a food is processed it is more likely to contain additives, preservatives, and other irritants that will aggravate your gut and your skin. It's food you can imagine growing in a garden or on a farm. Maybe it's food you actually grew in your garden. It won't bear a label proclaiming it is "low fat", "low calorie" or "natural", in fact it probably won't have a label at all.
Eat mainly grass fed and wild grazed meat, vegetables, raw milk and homemade yogurt. When we saute it's in butter, ghee, or coconut oil. And when we crave a sweet it's usually honey, fruit, or maple syrup. Are there exceptions? Of course. But this is our baseline.

Gut Flora Diversity and the Risk of Eczema
The most solid evidence for the role of gut flora in the development of eczema comes from studies investigating the difference between the gut microflora of infants who develop eczema and those who did not.
In one 2008 study published in the journal, Clinical and Molecular Allergy, the researchers compared the microbial diversity in 21 infants by taking fecal samples at 1 month and 4 months after birth.
