😜🍉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
Adopt ALOE VERA GEL into your daily routine and see & feel the benefits in your skin and overall health!
SKIN: Rich in VitE, anti-inflammatory, prevents and removes wrinkles, gives glowing and super hydrated skin. You can apply it to freshly washed and dried skin, let it sit for 15 min then wash off, great for redness and inflammation, acne, sunburns, blemishes, dry skin etc. HAIR: Cut a large piece, blend and apply to scalp and hair (best if freshly washed), let it sit for 15 min and wash out! Strengthens and grows dry, brittle hair because it’s rich in folic acid & B12! EATING: Blend in juices & smoothies. Consume fresh aloe on a daily basis and it can actually help the skin more from the inside out! Rich in B12 which is great for vegans, contains tons of trace minerals, helps repair the gut & aids in any digestive distress like bloating, constipation etc. I love to add it to my celery x cilantro juice first thing in the morning, and I also love to add it to freshly blended melon juice (add fresh mint for another dimension of flavour)!
Here’s a great skin and digestive nourishing recipe: BLEND •2cups fresh pineapple •1 cucumber •about 2″x2″ piece of fresh aloe and a bit of water and ice if you’d like! Enjoy all the nourishing and hydrating benefits! Pineapples are rich in digestive enzymes (great for gut repair) & vitamin C (great as a natural antihistamine & immune support). #eczemaholistichealing

Check out some awesome reviews from a few of our past participants:
I joined this group 2 years into TSW and I wasn’t sure what exactly I would gain from being here because I did as much research as I could going to practitioners, and doing things on my own but I was still suffering. I had seen little victories here and there but I needed something more. Surprisingly, I learned a lot of little things here and there from the modules and from people sharing on the live coaching calls. Implementing those small changes was a very big push into my healing journey. I’m finally seeing clear results that I haven’t seen in the last 2 – 2 1/2 years! I think it’s an awesome tool for anyone in any stage of their TSW journey. I thought I read every possible blog post to see what other things that I might be missing in my regimen but I’m really glad that I decided to join to be able to get to know Abby and Jen and all the people struggling with me. Just knowing there are other people going through the same struggle is comforting and empowering and knowing that we are rooting each other on as we’re all trying to get to the same goal. We have a “shared trauma” that helps us all to get through. Before this program I would research so much, and learn things on my own like avoiding certain foods, and doing certain things that would be good for the skin, but the biggest thing that helped was realizing how powerful your mindset is in the healing process. Using affirmations, and including your mind in the healing process really helped. That is something that I would not have known to look into on my own. When I’m looking at my skin I can now visualize what it will be like when it’s healed!

From joining the program I find the most helpful thing for me is being able to talk to other people in similar positions. I find that to be the biggest help because you know that you’re not alone going through it and that there are others feeling, thinking and experiencing the same things. Also how you all have recommended all natural stuff, I think that’s so important. When I would have recommendations from Abby and Jen, I haven’t hesitated to go ahead and try them because I didn’t have to worry about side effects. I find you all so encouraging and I definitely want to thank you for that!

Abby and Jen’s Conqueror Eczema Academy was really helpful with my journey going through life with eczema. I joined the group to help me take it to another level, to really be focused on it because doing it on my own I cheat here and there and using the groups it helped me to stay on track and it was motivational being on the group calls. I like how responsive Abby and Jen were, anytime we needed information they would put themselves readily available for us, answering any questions and concerns we may have. They did a good job guiding us into which direction in changing our lifestyle for the better. It’s not just the eczema, it’s just a symptom of what’s going on inside of our bodies. They are very informative of what needs to be done to cleanse our bodies and detox, to pretty much overall change our lifestyle and health. I’m really appreciative of these 8-weeks that I’ve gone through and I’ve learned a lot from the both of these coaches and it’s really set a lifestyle change for me to be motivated and to keep up the work. It’s given me a lot of guidance in terms of the right direction for my health. I’m happy that I’ve joined and I’m sure that anyone who joins this will find a lot of benefit from the coaches Abby and Jen.

Abby and Jen’s programme offered great support to help me get through difficult times in my journey towards better health and skin. It gave me the confidence to know that I am doing down the right path and to stay consistent in the actions I am taking to clear my eczema.

We discussed many topics, and one of them was the importance of getting hydrated when you wake up in the morning. It’s not only important for people with skin issues but for anyone! We have to remember that we’ve pretty much been fasting all night, so it’s not uncommon to feel super thirsty and dehydrated with extra dry skin. Getting an ample amount of liquids in you in the morning not only helps you hydrate from the inside out by bathing your organs & cells but it stimulates digestion and flushes out toxins!
This is how I like to do it… it has become routine for me and super easy to do: First I like to drink a good amount of room temperature water, then I will drink my celery juice. This is a Medical Medium practice that I’ve adopted and love to do! There are so many health benefits with it, but here’s a few:
- it’s great for skin health
- alkalizing the body
- flushing out toxins
- aids in digestion
- it gives me energy
- and I instantly feel like my skin is refreshed when I drink it!
I like to add a knob of fresh ginger to mine, for extra anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits. A little while after that I will have my warm turmeric tea with lime. It’s basically warm lime or lemon water with the addition of turmeric and a tiny bit of black pepper & coconut oil to make it more bioavailable & to bring out the healing properties in it. Turmeric is highly anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich. After that I will have some fresh fruit, usually, it’s some sort of melon but today I did a mix of blood oranges, valencia oranges, and navel oranges. 🍊🍊🍊 It’s always best to consume fruit as the first meal of the day because it’s super easy to digest, and hydrating… we don’t want to burden the digestive tract with heavy, hard to digest foods because as I mentioned, we’ve been fasting all night. How do you like to hydrate in the morning?💦

This morning: fresh face…just moisturizer, messy hair don’t care 😜, feeling good-feeling great! …Working on more self-love 💚 Sometimes I look at my skin and only notice the wrinkles that still need to smooth out, or the discolouration and un-even tone that needs to even out. BUT then I check myself…tell myself “look at all you’ve been through with your skin and overall health, it’s not a sprint but a marathon, be kind to yourself, it can take time but you ARE healing and getting better every day!” I touch the areas of my skin that are super smooth, wrinkle-free and even-toned and I touch areas that are still in repair and I repeat, “everywhere else looks and feels like this, everywhere else looks and feels like this” 💜 Saying these words like a mantra, and touching the skin will give life, love and positive healing energy to those areas…the words will manifest and take root! Kiss your skin, touch your skin and tell it you love it, even if it’s angry at the moment…with all of the awful symptoms that come with this healing process…it will thank you 🙏 Be kind and gentle with yourself, your body is healing and taking its time to do so, you do right by it and it will be so right by you! #eczemaholistichealing
