Eczema & Psoriasis Causes & Cures

If You Have Eczema Or Psoriasis You Need To Read The Whole Article!

This means reading the sections pertaining to Eczema if you have Psoriasis, and reading the sections pertaining to Psoriasis if you have Eczema.

Whilst these two conditions are obviously different they share a number of things in common. But this isn’t surprising…

Most conditions that we suffer from today start in the gut!

Psoriasis & Eczema & Gut Health

Our poor diets coupled with prescription medication and environmental toxins, (particularly the variety of environmental toxins that disrupt our hormones, or endocrine systems), are having a disastrous effect on our digestion, our mood, and, believe it or not, our intelligence… and, of course, this is all reflected in the health of our skin.

Eczema and Psoriasis, therefore, share a lot in common, and, rather than write the same things in each of the two sections, (one devoted to Eczema and the other to Psoriasis), I have peppered all of the information throughout the two.

So, please read the whole article if you want to gain a good grasp of what you can do to help cure your Eczema and Psoriasis… for good.

Gut Health Video Interview

You can also go to the Facial Oils page, on this website, and start watching the extremely enlightening video interview between Dr. Josh Axe and Dr. Eric Zelinski regarding gut health in the context of using essential oils for health.

Begin the video at 6.20, (thus missing out the unnecessary preamble), where you will join Dr. Eric Zelinski explaining the three main causes of severe gut issues, or gut dysbiosis… and you will likely be horrified to learn that, like me, you’ve been exposed to all three!

You will find this essential viewing video at the bottom of the Facial Oils page.

Bath Salts For Eczema & Psoriasis

Wild As The Wind produce a very pacifying blend of bath salts that are ideal for Eczema and Psoriasis.

The combination of bicarbonate of soda and Epsom Salt, mixed with the extremely calmative and balancing essential oils will not only sooth angry irritation, but will, with continued use, effectively reduce symptoms, in all likelihood.

Eczema & Gut Health

Bath salts alone cannot fully cure Eczema, however. As mentioned, Eczema has a digestive component, as well as an emotional / stress component. Hormones also have a role to play in Eczema, particularly in the teenage years.

But remember, the gut has a direct impact on hormonal health… so, gut dysbiosis starts a viscous circle of problems that ultimately lead to the outward signs of the internal mayhem that ensues when the gut gets out of whack.

Acne and other forms of dermatological issues are no different in this respect!

Eczema & Stress

The act of having a salt bath, especially one with calming essential oils, is an intentional attempt to care for oneself, and is an active decision to reduce the level of stress being experienced. So, on a psychological level the mere act of bathing, in this beautifully hand blended bath salt, is very healing in and of itself.

Eczema & Digestive Health

The only thing that these bathing salts can’t really address is the digestive connection. (Although, stress will negatively impact the gut, and so reducing stress will have a positive impact on the gut, if only indirectly.)

Gut dysbiosis is becoming an increasingly widespread problem. The cure usually involves cutting out gluten and dairy as well as taking Probiotics and eating bone broth daily until the gut dysbiosis is cured.

Probiotics should carry as many different strains of good bacteria as possible, and will also include soil probiotics. The amount of good bacteria within each serving should number into the billions.

Probiotics repopulate the gut with friendly flora, which form 80% of our immune system, and without which we cannot digest our food properly. The more diverse the Probiotic the more effective it’s going to be. This means that the more strains of probiotic within the remedy will improve the efficacy of the probiotic blend. It is particularly important to have soil probiotics as well as the more common strains like Lactobacillus etc.

Probiotics should be taken upon rising with water at least half an hour before consuming any food or drink other than water.

You will get great advice from your local health shop. (We recommend Chi Wholefoods in Bristol and The Good Earth health food shop in Wells.)

The Germans tend to make great probiotic supplements, but our favourite is Garden Of Life Defense Ultra, which we buy directly from the USA. But beware, these probiotics, whilst being some of the best probiotics in production today, are also ridiculously expensive when imported from the States. These probiotics are pretty pricey anyway, but there’s also quite a lot of duty to be paid if you import anything from the US.

SBO’s Or Soil Based Probiotics

A great way of getting a free and natural source of probiotics is to grow your own herbs and salads and eat them without washing them.

Probiotics like lactic acid and bifidobacteria have a really hard time surviving the digestive process. The hydroclauric acid in our stomachs is designed to kill bacteria of the pathogenic variety, but it also kills these beneficial strains of bacteria by default.

But, soil-based organisms, or SBO’s, can naturally survive stomach acid, and the results are amazing.

SBO’s have been shown to prompt an 80% to 100% remission rate in IBS patients within a two week period when taken daily.

There are more bacteria in a teaspoon of productive soil than there are people on the planet! And, most beneficial bacterial strains found in healthy soil are extraordinarily robust. SBO’s can survive heat, shock, and the hydroclauric acid found in human stomachs.

Perhaps, the best thing about SBO’s is that they thrive in the intestinal environment which means that they augment our immunity, help digest our food, maintain a healthy gut and even produce neurotransmitters like Serotonin to ensure brain and hormonal health.

SBO’s have also been shown to reduce inflammation, aid our detoxification, and have even been shown to influence our genetic expression for the better.

All of these benefits have a direct beneficial influence on the condition of our skin. SBO’s remedy all of the root causes of our skin conditions, and as long as we eat a balanced, healthy diet, our skin should remain healthy indefinitely.

If we continue to feed these beneficial strains of probiotics in our gut with prebiotic foods then they will continue to flourish. New bacteria will replace old, dying bacteria as long as we maintain a suitable environment for them.

Fermented Foods

Live fermented food is also very important for the gut. Again, there’s plenty of options at Chi Foods and Good Earth, but Wells Market and the farmers markets in Bristol are also beginning to expand their cultured foods options.

We love the Olive lady at Wells Market, who is also at Castle Carey once a month. We’re sure she puts in an appearance in Bristol also, as she hales from that direction, but we’re not sure where…? She sells an amazing selection of pitted, and stuffed olives, fermented garlic, and antipasto, all of which will have an amazingly healthy impact on the gut and go some way to repopulating the microbiom.

Reducing Stress

For more information about reducing stress check out the broad-spectrum advice in the article Morning Detox Protocols, and consider subscribing to our blog. We will be publishing a lot more information about these issues in the next few months.

Dysbiosis & Allergies

As with Psoriasis there’s an issue with dysbiosis and allergies where Eczema is concerned. Thus, if you want to alleviate this burden on the body to ultimately try and eliminate any further outbreaks of Eczema, then diagnosing food and environmental allergies is very much advised, (using Kinesiology as modern medicine, (we use the term reservedly), is particularly ill-equipped to help in this area).
Make sure you read the information pertaining to Psoriasis as it’s also pertinent.

Bath Salts For Psoriasis

This blend has been specifically created to help with conditions such as Psoriasis and Eczema, but these calmative salts will help pacify and heal many other skin conditions if used on a regular basis.

Psoriasis is a very complex issue with a profound impact on the body. Psoriasis is an Auto-Immune condition, which means that it is affecting every single function of the body.

Auto-Immunity

Auto-Immune means to attack oneself, and whilst we don’t entirely agree that this is actually what is happening… (the body NEVER tries to attack itself, the body is the most beautiful self-healing system in creation…), but, the condition Psoriasis is so impactful, on such a profound level, the body is having to go to extreme lengths to try and protect itself.

For example, when suffering from hypothermia, the body will draw all the warmth, (blood flow) to the core of the body to keep the major organs safe at the expense of the extremities. Fingers and toes fall victim to frost bite, but the core continues to function and the body survives.

If you have Psoriasis you must understand you have a serious condition that is forcing your body, on a daily basis, to make massive compromises to keep you as well as possible.

Psoriasis & Leaky Gut Syndrome

Where Psoriasis is concerned, the most likely explanation for the auto-immune response is that foreign invaders are making their way into the blood supply due to leaky gut syndrome. As Steven Gundry, a preeminent heart surgeon, explains in his book, The Plant Paradox, the culprits are called lectins, and they’re what many plants produce in an attempt to try and avoid being eaten.

Gluten & Other Lectins

By design lectins elicit a negative response when eaten. Gluten is a lectin, but there are many more varieties in the arsenal of the plant kingdom.

Gluten, and other lectins, are behind the creation of leaky gut. Once eaten the body produces something called Zonulin, which in turn opens up the tight junctions of the intestinal tract, thus allowing undigested food, as well as bacteria, and other toxins, into the blood stream.

This is why Psoriasis suffers tend to have chronic inflammation, chronic fatigue, brain fog, (lectins breech the blood brain barrier also), and lower back pain, (an outward sign of the presence of leaky gut).

Sugar & Leaky Gut

But it’s not only lectins that can cause leaky gut. Over consumption of sugar can also bring about this condition, as well as Candida Albicans overgrowth, and a condition called SIBO, which stands for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth.

We highly recommend getting a copy of the Steven R Gundry book if you are serious about curing your Psoriasis once and for all. It will, however, require that you cut out a lot of foods that you are likely to want to continue eating. Be warned!

Psoriasis & Allergies

As with Eczema there’s an issue with dysbiosis and allergies. Thus, if you want to alleviate the considerable burden that Psoriasis places on the body then diagnosing food and environmental allergies, (using Kinesiology as conventional medicine is particularly poor in helping in this area), is very much advised.

Psoriasis & Type 2 Diabetes

In addition, Psoriasis shares a lot in common with Type 2 Diabetes. At their core, according to Jack Kruse, (Neurosurgeon), they are both conditions that are caused by insufficient sunlight. Watch the interview with Jack Kruse at the bottom of the page on Shungite, which will, very likely, be profoundly enlightening for you.
*Please be warned, Jack Kruse discuses how Psoriasis is a pre-cancerous condition.

Psoriasis & Sunlight

Jack Kruse also states that supplementing with Vitamin D is folly, instead advocating living closer to the equator as he has done, but this is not always possible! However, living in the UK means that the sun is too low in the sky from October through to April and so we take Vitamin D supplements, along with Vitamin K2, in the winter months.
This report states that Vitamin D is likely critical in all Auto-Immune Conditions.
Make sure you read the information pertaining to Eczema as it’s also pertinent.

Symptomatic Relief From Eczema

Eczema sufferers can gain immediate symptomatic relief from the Psoriasis and Eczema Bath Salts especially when used in conjunction with FACIAL OIL No. 7.

FACIAL OIL No. 7 and FACIAL OIL No. 2 have been blended for, as the name suggests, use on the face, but they can actually be applied to great effect anywhere on the body.

For example, FACIAL OIL No. 7 has been created using seven incredibly healing and very light-weight base oils, as well as ten essential oils that collectively deal with the physical, emotional, spiritual and metaphysical causes behind Eczema.

FACIAL OIL No. 2 has eight different essential oils and six base oils, (most of which are also in FACIAL OIL No. 7), that can also dramatically impact the symptoms of Eczema, and over time will improve the condition more permanently.
