Eczema & Psoriasis Causes & Cures 

Bad Apple

Not many people know that Acne, Eczema & Psoriasis pretty much all have the same root cause! But the truth is, the root causes of practically all dermatological skin conditions are the same… and by that I mean, GUT DYSBIOSIS… or, a malfunctioning digestive tract… This is also true of Vitiligo, Rosacea & Dermatitis etc…

Psoriasis & Eczema :: One Cause With Many Influences

Gut dysbiosis may be the root cause of almost all skin problems, but there are many causes of a dysbiotic gut!

These can be emotional, psychological or physical in origin. All three will act as stressors on the gut. Sadly, we are living in a pretty toxic world which is not only chemically toxic but is also psychologically toxic too.

It was good to hear Russell Brand speak out about the UK mainstream media and how it had contributed to the engineering of the terrible outcomes for fragile, talented women, like Amy Winehouse, Jade Goodie and Caroline Flack. But as consumers of this toxic narrative we are all a little responsible. It’s time we changed our appetites and we’ll get fed a different diet!

Put more simply, in order to start the healing process we need to detox our toxic emotions, our toxic thought processes as well as our toxic food diets if we are going to see improvements in the condition of our gut. This will then have the knock on effect of improving the condition of our skin.

Why Do We Get Rashes?

Unexpressed anger is one of the key stressors when it comes to conditions which present as ‘angry’ rashes… it makes sense…. It’s very much as though our suppressed anger is finding an alternate means of expression! And angry, itchy, sore skin is very much the outward expression of the frustration and irritation that’s going on within.

But, C section babies and those which were not breast fed have a higher incidence of Eczema and Psoriasis… more on that later….

Our Skin Is A Sponge

It’s important to realise that we not only excrete 40% of our body waste through our skin, but we also absorb 60% of everything we put onto our skin as well.

So, chemical cleaning products are disastrous for us, especially in light of the fact they are all so unnecessary. We can save a fortune and save our health by using homemade eco-friendly cleaning products.

Laundry detergents are other key irritants. It’s often the harsh chemical fragrances which are the issue. And, the same holds true for perfume, which is as equally toxic for the body. Learn why perfumes and fragrances should be avoided at all cost in Essential Oils Versus Perfume.

Wireless Technologies Are Stressing Us Out

Modern technologies, such as Smart Metres, mobile phones, computers, tablets, radio phones, baby monitors, microwave ovens all have the ability to induce skin issues including: hives (urticaria), rashes, itching, burning, redness, blotches and facial flushing. (See image below for more info.)

Makeup Causes Skin & Health Issues

And, of course, makeup is also an issue, as are makeup removers, and all of our body lotions, deodorants, shampoos and conditioners which are made ‘conventionally’. A lot of the chemicals in these products have no business being there!

Our Polluted World

We live in a chemical swamp most of the time, which is also coupled with industrial pollution. (We moved most of our manufacturing base to Asia / China, and now their air quality is appalling. But listen, it takes less than 48 hours for the wind to blow that toxic air all the way around the earth. It affects us all!

Gardening chemicals and home decor products are also a real issue. Always check before use.

Home furnishings are also an issue. They contain Xenoestrogens and Obesogens.

Gut Health Is Central To Our Health

Gut Health is vitally important… without it we will be sick in all kinds of ways…

Here is an except from the Gut Health article:

Recent discoveries have proven that the gut plays a central role in our health. It not only produces and regulates a lot of our neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine, but it also produces and regulates a lot of our hormones as well.

Neurotransmitters and hormones form our internal communication system, so if the production of these things are compromised, because our gut health is compromised, then the systems within the body start breaking down very quickly.

This is why, when we have a malfunctioning gut, we can develop all manner of associated conditions.

If so, the answer to your problems is most likely in your gut!
Do you suffer from chronic inflammation?
Do you have Eczema or Psoriasis?
Or chronic Acne?
Lower back pain?
Hormone issues?
Anxiety & depression?

Acne, Psoriasis & Eczema Cover-Up

The concealer and foundation cream market is worth a fortune, which only goes to prove that we are largely trying to cover up our Psoriasis and Eczema rather than dealing with the root problem.

Sadly, this is mainly because Western Medicine is doing the same thing! Western Medicine does not see Acne, Eczema, Rosacea, Vitiligo and Psoriasis as symptoms of a deeper problem, and so all that the medications do is treat the irritation of the skin, itchiness and bacterial overgrowths that occur in people with a dysbiotic gut. They don’t do anything to improve gut dysbiosis… In fact, the countless prescriptions of antibiotics that are doled out for Acne etc, just make matters a whole lot worse!
