A Good Eczema Diet Plan

A lot of eczema sufferers don’t understand how much their diet is tied to their eczema symptoms. Yes, we all know if we’re allergic to some food, we should cut it out of our diets, but it goes much deeper than that. We all know about various levels of air pollution, depending on where you live, but your body is also polluted, polluted internally by heavy metals, trace levels of pesticides from produce you eat that has built up over years, toxins from metabolic waste, any drugs you have taken, and of course toxins from allergic reactions. Your body is polluted by the artificial chemicals in the processed foods you eat too much of.

If, like most people, you eat a lot of processed foods, you are also likely undernourished, no matter how much you weigh. Weight is not a direct indicator of nutrition. Processed foods have most of the nutrients squeezed out of them. Conventionally farmed produce is often grown on ground that is so deficient in plant nutrients that farmers have to dump literally tons of chemical fertilizers on plants to get them to grow. They are sadly lacking in vitamins and minerals that our bodies need for good health. All of these factors gang up to compromise your health and the health of your largest organ, your skin.

You can address these issues and begin to cure your eczema with a two-pronged approach. The first part is to rid your body of the toxins that have accumulated over the years. Detoxify your system by doing a cleanse. You can find good detox cleanse products at reputable health food stores or you can enlist the help of a naturopathic doctor to guide you in your detoxification. Understand that in the initial stages of a cleanse, you may not feel so good. All the toxins that have accumulated in minute amounts over a long period of time are now being flushed out of your cells in relatively large quantities in a short period of time, so you may feel sick. This will pass as the toxins are cleared.

The second phase of the eczema diet plan is to change your diet. You should eliminate processed foods to the maximum extent possible. Don’t eat white flour products; don’t eat snack foods; don’t drink soft drinks. Eat whole foods, drink fresh juices, and take good supplements. Eat organic. Organic produce isn’t laced with the pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides that conventionally farmed produce is. Organically raised animals aren’t given artificial growth hormones and massive amounts of antibiotics, some of which find their way into your body.

You don’t have to do this all at once. Make the changes over time so that they are easier. You will find that as your body detoxifies and begins healing you will feel better, and it will become easier to make these life changing – and health enhancing – adjustments. Not only will your eczema be gone, but you will feel better and enjoy a higher quality of life in the bargain.
