Did you know that you could heal eczema?
Don’t let anyone tell you that it can’t be done.
Don’t let your current situation make you believe it can’t.
Don’t let your family doctor or skin specialist tell you that Eczema has no cure.
No matter how long it takes.
So what do I do to heal my eczema?
First things first, use the internet and social media to find people who have gotten a lot better and/or cured themselves from eczema so you can see it to believe it.
For the last 20 years of my life, my family doctor always told me, eczema has no cure.
Even though I didn’t want to believe it, because I heard it so much from medical professionals, I subconsciously believed it as well.
No matter what I tried, my eczema was always there. This aligned up perfectly with what my doctor told me.
So I essentially gave up my control and responsibility and left it with the Doctors and their medication, only for it to get worse over time and taking over every aspect of my life.
I felt like I had no control over my Eczema.
You have the power and responsibility to heal your eczema
I made this mistake and don’t want you to either.
By giving up the responsibility of eczema, you also give up your power.
I honestly didn’t want to deal with eczema.
Mentally and physically it was too much to manage with life.
It was easier to apply the creams and be done with it.
I’ll deal with it when it flares up.
But eczema always flares up.
But eczema has no cure.
When you see it and read it, you start to realize that you are mentally stuck in a loop because all your life you’ve been told eczema has no cure. So you can’t control the flares up which then makes you feel like you can’t control eczema.
You try treatments for a bit and when it doesn’t work, you find another.
It’s all about Progress
Find someone who has gotten their eczema to a manageable level where they are on a path to a eczema free life.
Once it clicks in your mind, body and soul, that eczema can be cured, you will take back the power and responsibility from whoever you gave it to.
In my case, it was all the doctors who couldn’t help me. Why? Because I wasn’t really helping myself either. I didn’t research eczema to the extent that I am now. I didn’t give it my 100%. I gave enough to get by.
I found people who were able to get rid eczema by following a certain diet along with a combination of natural remedies, supplements and lifestyle change.
Once I saw progress pictures of eczema warriors healing, I was inspired. I didn’t care what my doctor’s thought.
I was going to do this no matter what. I’m going to save myself.
I did consult a Naturopathic doctor to make sure I’m on the right path, but this time around, I feel in control.
I bounce ideas off the Doctor, I bring different solutions and my naturopathic doctor helps me narrow down on the approach I should take.
With eczema, there is no overnight fix. One pill, one cream, won’t cure us.
It’s a combination of things that work together over time.
So try to find the small wins in your day to day.
- Did I get more sleep than last time?
- Did I itch less or more than yesterday or last week?
- Are my affected areas more or less inflamed?
Take progress pictures! Keep a journal!
I hated taking pictures of myself when my skin was horrible. I was worried someone might see it and think different of me.
If you are worried about that, lock down that folder of pictures.
When you see progress, that’s all the spark you need to continue.
And then you feel more in control of your health and eczema than you have ever felt before.
And that’s all you need to heal your eczema.
You are what you eat
I’ve tried a lot of treatments and diets in the past, but the one thing that made the biggest difference is focusing on nutrition to heal from the inside out.
It is also very important to work with a healthcare practitioner to make sure you can adjust to this type of lifestyle and stay on track!
