Eczema cured with elimination diet
This interesting story was published just one hour ago on Eczema Parnets group on Facebook, published by "CT".
CT: I would like to share some pictures of my son's skin -
I know different things cause skin conditions.
He has had this 'condition' since he was 3 wks old and is now 2.4yrs.
The hospital kept telling me it was eczema and prescribed various creams including steriods which I stood my ground & didn't use them - as I had researched the effects. The photos you see are purely from changing his diet - no creams or drugs. I knew foods aggrevated him & made his skin 'flare up'.
But with advice and guidance from groups on Facebook and lots of extensive research by myself and my family and his nursery keeping a close eye on reactions we are finally (hopefully) getting to the bottom of it. He had allergy tests at the hospital - but all came back negative!!?? We are more than certain it is preservatives & sulphite pumped into foods as well as natural sulphur. Even if meat packaged on a 'soak pads' affect his skin, we found out even if the meat is organic these pads contain chemicals!!!
We have sourced a butchers where meat has not been in contact with chemicals & also a green grocers that sells local non spray produce.
We started with a very basic diet of broths then been adding foods back every three days to see if they are 'safe' with him. He currently eats about 10 food items and we are still trying new foods. We are so pleased with how far he has come and I would like to share the pictures with you.
We had gone in loads of different directions, but what has made this difference is meat (chicken/turkey/rabbit/duck/beef(either steak or mince) as well as make a broth with the bones, just that for 5 days (he also liked chilled broth-it goes like jelly).
We also changed to cooking and him drinking Evian instead of tap water - which we are sure when introduced he had a leap in healing, then we added back red lentils (then black lentils - but he reacted), spinach (non spray), garden peas, kidney beans, black eyed beans, ground pepper (done in pestle & mortar), parsley, corriander, fortified almond milk, pumkin and sunflower seeds (he is abit fussy with these). Still working on new foods and some we try do react, but we then wait 3 days before adding a new food. It is hard on deciding which food next and lots of research, but so happy with the results!!
It is something in their environment or they are eating. If I had gone the hospital route he would probably be like this the rest of his life and using these creams - which would be doing more damage to him. It has been a difficult road to get this far and when I regarded my children to already be on a 'healthy diet' it is shocking on research to learn what happens to our food in the process to the shelf!!
You think you are buying fresh food, but more often than not, it is far from fresh!! Its also scary that the government let these companies put so much 'rubbish' in/on our foods!!! The hospitals/doctors are just interested in treating, not finding the causes. A few doctors at hospitals thought I was crazy, when I kept saying it is food that affects him and how he ate an offending food and he would scratch so much after and sometimes bleed. It was hard standing upto the doctors though, did at times feel they felt I was not doing the best for my son by not using the steriods and other creams.
I first noticed a patch behind one knee at 3 wks old (I breastfed till 6 mths) then as food was being introduced he got a patch at the top of one arm, it started in small patches on his back when he went to nursery, but no where near as bad as the 1st picture. They changed nursery mid last year, nursery told me it was fresh cooked food. But it got dramatically worse (1st pic), I questioned them about food (trying to eliminate things) and learnt it was all processed and cooked in the oven - which is what they call
