This is not so uncommon because women are generally not being taken car of after delivering. The following 6 weeks after giving birth, their body is in disarrey, the immune system low, the digestive functions relatively poor, all due to the fact their bodies must completely restructure themselves and readjust to being without a baby growing in the womb. Their ideal diet should be Vata-decreasing at that time (see The Key to Health and Rejuvenation, available from www.1stbooks.com) and the colon and liver should be detoxified. Otherwise, the dicarded extra tissue that now is no longer necessary, doesn't get eliminated and, instead, is deposited in the connective tissues around the body. There is much connective tissue under the skin. Where the toxins and dead cell material is more concentrated, it may enter the skin blocking nutrient supplies to the different layers of skin. This may affect the skin's normal growth and elimination cycles. The result is exzema. Of course, it got worse after your second child, because the problem repeated itself and added to the existing one.
It is important that you keep cleansing the liver until all stones are released (see The Amazing Liver Cleanse, also from www.1stbooks.com). In addition, A Pitta-pacifying diet (see the Key to Health and Rejuvenation) will help you avoid those foods that have a skin-aggrevating affect. Avoid foods such as cheese, yoghurt, milk, ice cream, cooked tomatoes and tomatoe sauces, vinegar, ready-made salad dressing, nut butters, cashews, peanuts, meat and meat products, and especially fish. Eczema gets aggrevated by fish. Protein foods (unless protein as contained in in rice, beans, advocado, etc) congest blood vessel walls and lymophatic ducts. To clear eczema for good, you need to clean out the blood vessel walls and lymph ducts, easily done by avoiding concentrated protein foods.
You may also benefit from the many lifestyle, daily routine advices given in the above book. Avoid also leftover foods and foods prepared in the micro wave oven or a frozen. None of these can enter the cells due to the destruction of life force, but get trapped inthe connective tissues surrounding the cells.
