My Experience with Eczema…
Being an eczema sufferer since I was a baby, I have lived with eczema on my body for over 35 years. During my childhood I followed the orthodox method to make my eczema “feel better” through steroid creams. This was a way of relieving the itch of eczema. It did not look at why I had eczema or what was triggering my eczema. I was never offered an alternative method to heal eczema naturally.
As an adult, I took it upon myself to take charge of my eczema. I started with natural eczema relief creams, as I thought creams were the only way to heal eczema! I felt like I tried every natural cream on the market without any eczema relief success. So my quest to heal eczema naturally with natural creams did not work. I didn’t know what else to do. So in the end I decided to just deal with my eczema flare up’s without any treatments, natural or other. This took a lot of mental willpower to not itch my skin and I was often not able to withhold.
When I became a mother to our children, who also had episodes of eczema, it gave me the motivation to further my research into ways to heal eczema naturally from the inside out.
What Helped Me…
I was overjoyed when I read these books “The Eczema Diet” by Karen Fischer and “Eat Right for Your Type” by Peter J. D’Adamo. I recommend that you buy and read these books. I was so empowered when I applied the suggested food changes from both books to our diet. The results achieved over a few months was enough to convince my mind that our bodies can heal themselves when given the right foods. Finally I learnt how to heal eczema naturally.
I spent many hours reading more books on food, vitamins, minerals and herbs. I wanted to heal and nourish my skin naturally and I wanted to learn all I could about healing from the inside out (and I still do!). So we nourished our bodies with eczema friendly foods and I put together my own blend of organic herbal infusion teas, to give support to our vital organs and strengthen our internal bodies. Gradually our external eczema symptoms began to disappear, no more itching!
We also made a whole bunch of natural and healthy lifestyle and food changes to our everyday life. It is amazing, not only have our eczema symptoms improved, but our overall health is brimming with vitality too.
Things I Learnt…
I discovered that there were some common threads to our eczema flare up’s. But I also realised that some triggers affected my children more than myself, and each child had their own sensitivities.
That is when I realised that identifying eczema triggers and managing them to minimise flare up’s was also key to heal eczema naturally. This is what lead to the online development of our eczema monitor.
Healing eczema is largely about making informed food and lifestyle choices. I hope that if you use the eczema monitor to find out what your triggers are and by sharing my natural eczema healing tips, organic herbal infusion teas and eczema friendly recipes, that you can revitalise your life too.
A few more things about me…
I am family orientated at this time in my life. I spend most of my time with my family and can be found at our beachside home cooking fresh organic meals along with Flo, my amazing husband.
I am a home herbalist, I grow my own herbs, and a few fruits and veggies. I have a Certificate in Herbal Medicine Making from the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine.
I enjoy our weekly visit to our local organic farmers markets. I am a surfer, I love the ocean and the waves. My first Diploma was in Sport Management specialising in Surfing Studies! Along side surfing, I love staying fit and healthy, thanks to Katrina and Karena at ToneItUp.
I am environmentally conscious, we run our home on solar and we use rain water tanks on our property. I am aware and conscious on many levels. I have also completed a Bachelor of Environmental Science. I hope that I can continue to provide value in this world, by living a clean, green and loving life.
