Most dermatologists use conventional methods for the treatment of eczema and believe me I’ve used them all. They prescribe topical treatments such as salves or ointments; or prescriptions intended to suppress most eczema symptoms. Unfortunately, these specialists seldom prescribe an Eczema Diet.
An Eczema Diet is a diet which comprises natural Superfoods which are very effective at treating eczema and in some cases curing the skin complaint completely. And it’s not that hard to create an Eczema Diet yourself, a diet that will dramatically transform your skin rash and produce new, healthy skin cells.
Superfoods are very powerful and are jam-packed with potent nutrients and enzymes needed for ultra health and the well-being of your skin. These Superfoods will work deep at rejuvenating every cell in your body and gently but speedily begin the healing process. These Superfoods are living foods and feed the body with much needed nutrients, the absent of which more than likely caused the skin complaint in the first place.
Superfoods strengthen blood, nourish organs and revitalise tired cells. Superfoods tend to be high in fluid and rich in fibre and will detoxify the whole system. And no, they are not difficult to find. Superfoods can be easily purchased in any good supermarket or health store.
Now, in creating your Eczema Diet – the top 3 Superfoods for Healthy Skin to include are foods that are rich in the following nutrients:
– Omega 3 and Omega 6;
Your Eczema Diet should contain foods rich in Selenium as Selenium is needed for the health of the immune system. The immune system is responsible for the body’s resistance to many skin disorders. Your body needs adequate supplies of Selenium in order to resist disease. Foods rich in this nutrient are plentiful. Good sources of Selenium can be found in Brazil nuts, Brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, dairy products, tuna, vegetables, seafood, and brown rice. Eat combinations of these foods two or three times per week.
Your Eczema Diet should contain foods rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6. These cannot be created by the body and so must be taken in your food. Omegas maintain cell membrane and transport fats in the body. Fatty acids in oils help reduce inflammation and ease eczema. The Omegas create smoother skin and enhance muscle action. Flaxseed Oil is rich in both Omega 3 and Omega 6. Another reliable source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 is fish. The more popular fish include mackerel, salmon, trout, herring, and tuna. Three portions each week is recommended.
Your Eczema Diet should contain foods rich in antioxidants as this helps repair damaged skin by disarming free radicals. Free radicals are produced in the body on a regular basis but their production is alarmingly increased with the consumption of processed foods. As free radicals are implicated in the deterioration of skin cells, minimizing and defusing their activity with antioxidants will enable the skin to become stronger and healthier and certainly look and feel smoother. Good sources of antioxidants are fresh fruits and fresh vegetables – organic or course is best.
Creating Your Eczema Diet does not have to be complicated. The above is a simple guide and should ease you gently into thinking about the foods you eat with regard to your eczema. After you have experimented with these you can expand your list of Superfoods – there are quite a few of them out there. It is just a question of choosing the ones that have the maximum effect on your skin.
