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.

There are tons of diets, some for religious beliefs, some medical conditions, some for weight loss, and most importantly, for good health. What is the right diet for eczema?

Problem is, to treat eczema, you often hear:

“will the Paleo diet cure eczema?”

“will the vegan diet help eczema?”

“what is the best diet for treating eczema?”

Not All Fruits and Veggies Are Eczema-Friendly (The 4 Types)

Not all fruits and veggies are good the eczema body.
Not all fruits and veggies are good the eczema body.

“Eat more fruits and veggies because they are super healthy!”

“You need vitamins from fruits and fiber from veggies!”

As cliches go, it sounds like these plant foods are mandatory in our lives or else we will die, or at least, be in poor health.

However, speaking in the perspective of an eczema sufferer, not all fruits and vegetables are created equal – not all of them are eczema-friendly.

As an eczema sufferer, we need to avoid certain fruits and veggies.

In this article, I’ll list them out and explain why, even though plant foods are nutritious and beneficial in many ways, they are disadvantageous to eczema patients overall.

From experience, here’s what I do best to relieve itches.
