My favourite essential oil blend to diffuse at night for restful sleep is a mix of Lavender, Roman Chamomile & Vetiver. I will sometimes just take the bottle of Lavender & inhale to give me a calm, soothing effect if needed & if you put 3 drops of Lavender eo in a veggie cap (with an edible carrier oil like coconut oil) you can take this as a sleep remedy without the side-effects.

Here’s some info from Dr.Z (eo specialist):
“Essential oils are transdermal (meaning they penetrate the skin) & work on the body’s physiology in a variety of ways. This means that you can affect your body’s biochemistry when applying them topically in a similar way as when taking them internally or inhaling them via diffusion. As research suggests, topical application may actually be one of the most effective methods for people with sleep disorders as the chemical components of lavender have been shown to enter the blood stream within 5 minutes of massaging the oil on the skin. The calming & relaxing effects of lavender essential oil have a one-two punch when applied topically because of the direct aromatic benefit on the brain when the volatile organic compounds are inhaled & through the skin! The 1992 study that proved this, also uncovered that maximum concentration levels were observed within 20 min. Don’t worry, it’s not like the sedative properties last forever. Within 90 min most of the lavender was eliminated.”
Hey guys, Abby of @primephysiquenutrition and I have extended the deadline for the Conqueror Eczema Academy LIVE coaching session to June 10th! Each one of our past members have loved being apart of our community, learning all about natural healing for life-long health AND have all seen results within the 8 weeks! It’s so wonderful to get to know everyone from all over the globe and relate with one another in their healing journey. I’ve been through the worst of it (26 years of topical steroid use, and a Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer conqueror) and thankfully I am 6 years topical steroid free. Although I’m still a work in progress, it’s been amazing seeing my skin and overall health repair over the years. It’s so rewarding to help our participants in their journey, encourage them through their struggles and share all I’ve learned and continue to learn to help me heal from the inside out. I hope you’ll join us and learn to get your health back on track as well!

Djinty from The Netherlands
“It’s very good to be interactive and not be alone experiencing the issues by yourself. It’s great to be in a community setting like this. It also helps me to be consistent with my juicing, and hearing others powerful stories helps me to be consistent and keeps me accountable.”
Natalie from California USA
“I got to meet another member through this group and now I have a buddy in my area! She introduced me to her acupuncturist who I love and it got me open to trying acupuncture again. I think it’s so important to have a community and that accountability to tell yourself, “ok you’re going to do this because you know that it works!” I think part of why I was afraid to join this group was because I wasn’t ready to give up all of these things (like certain foods) but once I was ready for it it was really helpful to apart of this community.”
Kirby from New Jersey USA
“I want to thank you, Abby and Jen for putting together this chat group. It’s a group that I wish I would’ve found early on when I was at my worst in my recovery process. I found it extremely helpful to be able to talk in a group and have some other people to listen and understand what you’re going though. This is one of those diseases that if you haven’t really gone through it then it’s hard to understand exactly how challenging it can really be.”
Cathy from Canada
“I’m really glad that I found this group. It’s always helpful to hear about things that people have tried that have helped them, because sometimes we can do things but don’t know if it’s helping. There can be so many different things to explore, so it’s great to hear from their experience and how it worked. All of that has really helped me. My skin has improved from where I started because I could barely sleep through the night. I’m not at 100% yet, but I’m glad for the support and I really value it.”
Cassie from California
“I just wanted to say that since this was my first call, I wasn’t really sure how it would go or what these calls are typically like but it has put me in such an amazing mood and hearing all of you speak about all of your experiences! It has made me so incredibly grateful to have found this group and I’m really in awe that all across the world we can all be going through such similar and intimate experiences and we can share and learn from one another. I was already feeling this way halfway through the call, and then I texted my sister (who also had eczema) and I told her “I’m on my first call, it’s so awesome!” and she texted back “I’m so jealous, where was that when I was going through it!?”
😜🍌Perfectly ripened bananas🍌😜 Make sure to always eat bananas nice & spotty because they are even better for the digestive tract and are super sweet! I’ll freeze them at this stage and blend for smoothies & thick nice cream! INFO: Never be afraid of the sugars in bananas, it’s totally different from the cane sugar & other processed sweeteners in cookies, cakes & doughnuts. Unlike processed sugar, the fruit sugar in bananas is bonded to critical life-supporting trace minerals such as manganese, selenium, copper, boron & molybdenum & a large amount of minerals such as potassium, which is one of the most critical nutrients for neurotransmitter function. Bananas are also high in amino acids that work with potassium as a catalyst for abundant electrolyte production. They are full of fiber, pulp & water & their sugar content is the very reason bananas have rich supplies of antioxidants, vitamins & other phytonutrients to help us fight disease. They are a powerful antiviral food, & high in tryptophan which can soothe sleep disorders, create calm, reduce anxiety & alleviate depression. And those who worry about Candida have no reason to fear bananas because they are the ultimate fungus destroyers, removing unproductive bacteria while feeding beneficial microorganisms in the intestinal tract. This also makes them b12 enhancing, because microbes in the gut can interrupt the ileum’s rightful process of producing b12. They are amazing digestive aids because they are antispasmodic on hyperactive colons, & they can alleviate gastric cramps and stress-related gastrointestinal diseases. They can help reverse colitis, Crohn’s and IBS. And lastly, they are great blood stabilizers, have stress-assist phytochemicals to get you through your day & help you balance your weight.

😜🍉WATERMELON TIPS🍉😜 I think watermelon (and melons in general) are a top eczema healing food to add to your diet. It’s super hydrating with its high water content, has fiber to help the digestive tract & comes with tons of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Eating melon is like bathing your body from the inside out! It’s best to eat melons first thing before other foods because they digest the fastest of fruits. You definitely don’t want to have it after a heavy meal because it will be like a traffic jam in your gut and cause all kinds of digestive distress (people at BBQs have it all wrong lol)!
I will have some fresh cut melon for breakfast (after my celery juice and warm lemon/lime turmeric tea), and then when I’m hungry again, I’ll enjoy some other fruit then a smoothie (I keep it high fruit from morning into the afternoon). A great deep cleansing tool is to do a watermelon fast/feast aka watermelon island for few days or longer. This type of mono fruit fast allows the body to clean house while putting its focus on healing because it’s only having to digest one simple food. Watermelon being super alkaline, electric and nutrient dense will aid the body in cleansing the lymphatic system and organs by pulling acidic wastes from the body. 🍉So get out there and get some melons today!🍉 ***squirting a lil fresh lime or lemon on watermelons give another depth of flavour and can even bring out the sweetness! 🍋#eczemaholistichealing
