Yes, they absolutely are. If you suffer from eczema, chances are it is due in large part to your diet. That’s the bad news. The good news is that by changing your diet, you can probably cure your eczema. “But Hal,” you say, “There is no cure for eczema.” Do you define “cure” as taking a magic pill one time and your eczema symptoms are gone forever? Then you’re right; there is no cure. If you define cure as putting your symptoms into permanent remission, with no more itching, no more red patches, no more embarrassment at your condition, then yes, there is a cure. Change your diet, cure your eczema, change your life.
If you are like most people, you consume way too much processed food. Processed foods contain far too many chemicals and far too few nutrients. Not all of the chemicals are excreted from the body. Some remain in your cells in minute amounts, building up over years and years. Your body has become internally polluted by these toxins, as well as heavy metals, drugs, and toxins made in our bodies because of allergic reactions. On top of that, with few nutrients in the food, you’re probably undernourished, no matter how much you weigh. You’re probably not as healthy as you think you are, and that shows in the eczema on your skin, the largest organ in your body.
Stop eating processed foods, such as snack foods, white flour, and soft drinks. Instead, eat natural foods that are naturally ripened, grown locally, and are free of pesticides. Eat organic. Non-organic foods have pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide residues that can get into your system. They are artificially fertilized and don’t contain the nutrients of organic foods.
Rid your body of the accumulation of toxins by doing a detox cleanse. Be aware that when you begin a cleanse initially you might feel a little ill. This is natural because the toxins are being flushed out of your cells in relatively large quantities, which can cause you to feel sick. This should pass in a few days. It might not be a bad idea to do this under the supervision of a naturopathic doctor.
Changing your eating habits doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing thing. You can make the changes gradually. However, once you start feeling better and see how tightly your eczema and diet have been intertwined you will want to continue to make the changes that will improve not only your eczema but your overall health and your quality of life.
