After having been released from the deep-end of the eczema cycle, I sometimes find it difficult to step back into the shoes of those who are still there (suffering from eczema).
Recently, I talked to a few friends and acquaintances and here’s what I discovered.
They are shocked at how dieting ACTUALLY matters. Even if they’ve tried, most people rarely persist through a fair amount of time to see any recovery.
They believe in most eczema myths. Don’t eat seafood at all because they are pro-allergenic. Drink more water and your skin will become more moist. (These are misleading),
They generally don’t care and don’t plan. This part struck me most. If you know there’s a way out, why are you not giving it a shot? Perhaps they think it’s too good to be true?
Number 3 is my focus today. I want to talk about one of the most challenging aspects of eczema recovery: how to take the first actions to start, and after that, how to further your plan (by having one first).
It seems repetitive to more experienced readers, but I believe this serves everyone as either a fresh or an important reminder to take action.
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.
