Four Stages of Eczema Recovery (Did You Skip Any?)

GThumbnail - 1o ahead and “heal” eczema – whatever that means to you.

You probably know “leaky gut” or “paleo.” Conventional treatment is misdirected. The key is gut-based solutions backed up by nutritional science.

The problem: we know so many concepts and diets which (probably) work, except we don’t pay attention to how our body heals in terms of stages.

Creating questions like:

  • When EXACTLY will my eczema heal?
  • How come all you do is conveniently say “it depends”?
  • Is Paleo, gluten-free, or dairy-free, etc, better?
  • “I seem to be stuck. It’s not improving.” Why?

There are four universal stages of eczema recovery. Understanding will stop you from jumping around places – saves you a lot of time and unnecessary suffering.

12 Annoying Eczema Contradictions That Seriously Need to Stop

Thumbnail - 5 full hoverAsk any Hong Kongese, they’ll gag-reflex you with “eczema is caused by excess humidity!

Ask an Australian, it’s the heat. Scandinavian, sunlight deficiency.

Yes, stereotypes. Since we don’t know too much, might as well believe “what they say” – right?

Junky eBooks, media and unsupported opinions often anchor some one particular chemical, GMO, or quote, and branch off simple questions into contradictory answers resulting in: divided beliefs.

Ban sugar but what about fruit sugar?

Eat fermented vegetables but don’t kimchi have nightshades?

Cut lactose but probiotic yoghurt?

Too many ‘truths’ today. Let me clarify them for you.

10 Day Water Fast (Again. Because it works.)

Pre-fast and post-fast comparison of my left arm patches.

I water fasted 3 days last year. Results? Not too exciting.

They say… persistence is key.

So I didn’t eat for 10 days straight this month. Just water and rest.

Unlike last time, this fast showed much more noticeable changes, especially that it fixed my digestion. Good news for eczema sufferers is – if you fast for 10 days, I guarantee your itches will be next to zero.

Key points:

  • How and Why Fasting Removes Eczema
  • Why did I fast?
  • My 10-Day Water Fasting Daily Journals (with pictures)
  • Chronic Constipation Gone!
  • Fasting Pros & Cons
  • How to Water Fast (in 200 words)
  • Special Note to Eczema Sufferers

Fasten up! (Sorry) Continue reading 10 Day Water Fast (Again. Because it works.)

How I Got Eczema Again and Cured It Again (And What This Means For You)

More pictures later.
More eczema pictures later.

I got eczema again.

This summer, I finally have time to fix it.

And I did.

Actually, I cured my eczema last summer that I’ve had for 10 years by following that highly restricted diet.

And so to say, I want to help as much people as I can. Because I know it works.

Of course, you’d want to follow the advice of an ex-sufferer who’s eczema never came back. Sorry to disappoint you but I cannot be that perfect role model. In fact, I’ve made quite a lot of mistakes in treating my eczema.

Today, I want to talk about several things:

  • Why eczema has the ability to “come back”.
  • Being eczema-prone.
  • How I got eczema again and cured it this summer (happening as I write).
  • How I greatly sped up my recovery time.
  • Why I’m using a modified diet this time instead of being highly restricted.
  • Why this is important to you as a warning sign.

And some pictures of what I eat these days.

7 Things You Think Are Helping Your Eczema But Are Not

uncertainSo we are given instructions and advice on how to treat our eczema body.
