I love me some ooey gooey black mission figs & when they are nice and ripe, they truly taste like jam! 😋They are amazing for our digestive tracts, which need to be in great working order to have clear, healthy skin!
Here’s some info on the benefits of figs from The Medical Medium’s book Life Changing Foods. I highly recommend this book, all of the detailed info on how powerful plant foods can be on our bodies is so amazing!
If you’re seeking answers for brain & gut health, look no further than the fig. It’s the ultimate tool for balancing these two intertwined aspects of well-being. Figs have unique phytochemicals that are bonded to minerals such as bioavailable potassium & sodium that specifically nourish & build neurotransmitters while also supporting neurons & synapses in the brain. It’s a powerful fruit for preventing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia & other neurological diseases, including ALS. On the intestinal side, figs are, like dates, one of the most effective bowel-cleansing foods on the planet. The skins feed good gut bacteria & are also antiseptic, killing unproductive gut bacteria, parasites, mold, & toxic heavy metals, while the seeds get into intestinal crevices & destroy disease-causing bacteria, viruses, & funguses that hide in those pockets. The fruit’s pulp and fiber massage the intestinal lining & build up the digestive immune system to help you stop struggling with stomach pain and bloating. Figs are effective in alleviating all types of gut problems, including diverticulitis, appendix, inflammation, constipation, inflamed colon & complications from C.difficile. Figs are high in vitamins such as the B vitamins, which are specifically bonded to phytochemicals to reduce radiation in the body. Also abundant in trace minerals, micronutrients, antioxidants & more, figs are a wonder food for all manner of ills; they should never be overlooked. The next time you’re dealing with any health issue, think of figs as your secret weapon!
Check out this awesome review that Cassie AKA The Naturalistic Nurse left for the Conqueror Eczema Academy! It has been great getting to know her and help her along in her healing journey. She has learned so much and has been a great source of encouragement for the other members in the coaching sessions.

I love Dr. Greger’s information and how he breaks everything down from actual analyzed data. He’s all about focusing on nutrition for healing, and these two videos are very informative for those with eczema. In reading my blog, you all know how adamant I am about having a healthy plant-based diet for great overall health and healthy skin. His info just solidifies the recommendations that I give. I have personally seen and felt the benefits of eating a vegan whole food diet, and I highly recommend it for those needing to heal from eczema.
“Dermatologists and Pediatricians have for many years denied the role of food in eczema, even though as many as 80% of kids may benefit from cutting out milk and or eggs” -Dr.Greger
Dairy is scary, avoid it like the plague, especially if you have eczema, it’s highly inflammatory, acidic, hard to digest and mucus causing. There are TONS of non-dairy alternatives out there such as rice, oat, flax, hemp, almond, coconut, cashew & more! Check out this simple recipe for hemp milk. Simply blend in a high-speed blender & strain with a nut milk bag if you think it needs it! You can use a few dates as a sweetener or maple syrup or coconut sugar! Here’s some info about hemp seeds: These wonderful healing seeds are packed with all 20 amino acids, are high in protein (which is great for vegans & vegetarians) and are full of vitamin E & fatty acids which are great for skin health! Hemp also has phytonutrients, which are the disease-protective element of plants with benefits that protect your immunity, bloodstream, tissues, cells, skin, and organs. 💚#eczemaholistichealing

16 Ways to Combat Eczema Itch with Natural Eczema Treatments
I recently did a guest post for Prime Physique Nutrition on the awful eczema itch and ways that we can help the symptoms. Shout to Abby for letting me contribute to her wonderful website!
Healing from the inside out is most important when tacking eczema and all of the horrendous symptoms that come along with it. Focusing on diet and detoxification is key, I cannot stress it enough. When the body is cleansed from the inside out and in a more alkaline state, the diseases we are plagued with cannot thrive! 🙂

Additional Info with the Guest Post:
The Calming Bath Treatment is mentioned in number 4 in the post and I personally find it very soothing when I soak with it. It leaves the skin smooth and hydrated because of the healthy, natural moisturizing ingredients in it.
The Conqueror Soothing Dry Skin Balm is mentioned in number 7 and I also loves this product as it smells divine, gives the skin a well-hydrated feel without feeling too heavy. and a little goes a long way with it.

Essential oils are mentioned in number 16 and I have a blog post where I specifically talk about the natural antihistamine blend HERE with my store site link in the post as well. I love this blend and product because of how effective it is and how it always gives me a calming relief in such a short time. It can really knock out any allergy issues and calm down an itch fest. Another blend that is effective is my Sleepy Time Diffuser Blend which can give calming relief and restful sleep. Diffusing that blend and taking the natural antihistamine blend is like a one-two punch for effective rest for eczema sufferers.
I hope all of these tips have helped! If anyone needs coaching support, want to just reach out, want to vent or need advice…please feel free to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org I’m always happy to hear from my readers and get you the support that you need! ❤ -Jen
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.”
