🌤🌿🌸Getting out in nature is so healing for the body and soul. Just having the warm sun on your skin, feeling the cool breeze and listening to the sounds of the birds and the wind can have such a calming and healing effect on us. 🌤🌿🌸
Saying healing mantras while closing your eyes and absorbing the sun rays is a wonderful routine one can do as well! 💛 I recently heard this mantra from a detox specialist and I want to share it with you all:
“I trust in my body. I listen to my body. I allow my body to heal.”
Your body doesn’t make any mistakes, it knows exactly what it needs to do to self-heal, we just have to give it the right tools to help it out! Always be loving and kind to yourself and only speak life into your body. Your positive thoughts alone can effect positive healing. Continue to envision your skin healthy, smooth and symptom-free and it WILL manifest 🙏🏽 I hope everyone has a great weekend! 🌼🌤🌿🌸
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!
Green drinks are super hydrating, alkalizing, amazing for the skin, great for the digestion and detoxifying for the body. It’s a great way to get a good amount of dense minerals and vitamins in and it’s really refreshing!
Today I used celery, kale, ginger, apple, lemon and cilantro. If you don’t have a juicer, that’s ok! I used my Vitamix blender the strained it. 👍🏽 Give your body some raw green goodness today, your cells will thank you! 💚
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 how determined and proactive she has been at healing her eczema and when you check out her BLOG you will get a chance to see her document her journey. You can check out her video review below and if you’d like to see more reviews from our other participants check it out HERE!

These lil purple globes are a powerhouse fruit that is amazing for your health and your skin! It’s so important to have restorative, hydrating foods in your diet when healing from eczema. Grapes are amazing because they are fiber and water-rich which is great for cleansing the digestive tract and they are super alkaline for the liver and kidneys as they help to pull metabolic wastes from them. When these detox channels are filtering properly, then eczema can’t stand a chance! We must cleanse internally to see external healing. The last channel of elimination, the skin, will no longer have the heavy burden of detoxing once the internal channels of elimination are working the way they should. You can even do a full-on grape fast as it can be the most healing for detoxification. Check out more info on DETOXING WITH FRUIT.
Check out this info from the Medical Medium in his book Life Changing Foods: “Grapes shouldn’t be misunderstood as being too high in carbs, sugar, or calories to be good for us. It’s just the opposite. Like bananas, grapes are a 1st rate fruit that promotes wellness on the highest level. They are less sweet than we think; they are more defined by tartness, which is a key medicinal quality. That sourness indicates the presence of phytochemicals critical to kidney function. If you’ve ever heard that you have elevated creatinine levels, this means your kidneys have become compromised in their ability to remove and excrete waste products from the bloodstream. Grapes are the ultimate kidney tonic-their phytochemicals bind onto the wastes that the kidneys have trouble filtering. Like cherries, grapes are an amazing liver-cleansing food. Their phytochemicals are able to dislodge debris, processed food, & by-products that can clog up lobules in the liver. Digestive benefits: grape skins hold powerful micronutrients that expel parasites, mold & other unproductive fungi from the intestinal tract. Antioxidants such as malvidin & other anthocyanins (which explain grapes’ blue, black, dark red & purple shades) give grapes the power to fight & prevent most types of cancer. Grapes can expel radiation from the body; their amino acids such as histidine, methionine & cysteine work together with their anthocyanins to become a magnet that draws DDT & toxic heavy metals out of the liver, kidneys, spleen & other organs, plus they’re a potent antiviral for autoimmune disease, which is caused by the viral explosion. Finally, grapes are an outstanding energy food. They offer a critical boost, whether you’re an athlete, constantly on the go, or you’re a thinker-that is engaging your brain all day with cognitive tasks (& multitasking), trying to excel at a given project, or in need of fuel to come up with your next big idea.”
“When you feel isolated-living your life with little interaction or coping with shyness & yet yearning for a sense of belonging to a group that accepts you-make grapes a part of your life. Remember, grapes are bunched together. As each cluster grows on the vine, the little globes stay close to each other, connecting on both a physical & metaphysical level. Each grape adjusts to fit perfectly into place with those around it. Focus on this wonder when you select & eat grapes. It will create a sacred intention, prepare you consciously & sub-consciously to find your people, & point you towards your true home”
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 ahealthy plant-based dietfor 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: email@example.com I’m always happy to hear from my readers and get you the support that you need! ❤ -Jen
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!
Hey guys! Abby of Prime Physique Nutrition and I have another LIVE 8-week coaching session for the Conqueror Eczema Academy coming up on the 5th of June! This plan allows you to have tons of info, videos and modules to help you along in your healing journey and the facebook group allows you to interact with other eczema sufferers all over the world! The group is especially awesome because there is the LIVE coaching component where we meet on 8 video/audio calls and discuss info and healing plans to get you right on track. Just check out the wonderful reviews from our last group below!
“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!?”
