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.
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! 🙂
Make sure to check out the blog post HERE.

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.
***More info on my Suggested Moisturizers and Soaps
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
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.”

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. Info from The Medical Medium.
😜🍉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
Also, make sure to beware of this GMO seedless watermelon:
