Eczema Attack

What do you normally do during eczema attacks?

Steroid no doubt reduce inflammation during eczema flare-up, however the medicine brings along the side effects that out-weight its benefits as it suppress the immune system response, thus leads to weaker immune system

To help with eczema, it's crucial to understand the root cause of eczema too. 

Eczema is an auto-immune disease, it means the immune system self-attacks own body organs.  

This can be linked to leaky gut syndrome

Our digestive tract functions as a protective barrier of our bloodstream from the food we eat, which allows essential nutrients to be fully absorbed and utilized by our body. 

A leaky gut is a condition of vulnerable and easily permeable gut lining where undigested food particles find their way into the bloodstream, which then triggers autoimmune responses that can eventually lead to various diseases such as eczema.

In order to prevent eczema, we can apply Nutritional Immunology Lifestyle approach: 

1. Prevent intestine from inflammation

Why inflammation happens on the intestine?

- Misuse/ overuse of antibiotics that kill the good gut bacteria 
- Constipation that leads to toxin accumulation 
- Overeating of oily and fried foods (as contains high omega 6) including cookies and biscuits

To prevent gut inflammation, prevent the above causes. 

1. Reduce/ Stop taking animal-based protein such as eggs, cow's milk, animal meats , dairies to prevent triggering the eczema attack.

2. Take Wholesome Plant Foods to reduce the intestine inflammation, such as cactus (excellent natural anti-inflammatory) , chia seed & kiwi seed (rich in omega 3 to balance the omega 6 intake) 

Hope you find the above helpful especially for people or parents who children who suffer from eczema in preventing eczema using natural way.

    3 Step-Solution for your child to improve from eczema

    How does Science of Nutritional Immunology explain and help on the eczema?

    What is Eczema?

    See the below from different sources of information about eczema definition and cause.

    1. Excellence Magazine Volume 9

    • Affecting about 10% of infants and 3% of the total population in the United States, eczema suffered have to endure the inflamed skin conditions that can include redness, blistering and oozing of the skin. The exact cause is unknown but many researches suspect genetic abnormality and a malfunctioning immune system. 

    2. Source:

    • Eczema is a common skin condition marked itchy and inflamed patches of skin. It is also known as atopic dermatitis. It is more common in babies and young children. It occurs on the faces of infants, as well as inside the elbows and behind the knees of children, teenagers, and adults. 
    • It is caused by an overactive immune system. 
    • Up to 20 percent of children and one to three percent of adults develop atopic dermatitis, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
    • In rare cases, atopic dermatitis can first appear during puberty or adulthood. It affects males and females equally. 
    • The exact cause of atopic dermatitis (eczema) is unknown, but it's likely due to a combination of dry, irritable skin with a malfunction in the body's immune system. Stress and other emotional disorders can worsen atopic dermatitis, but they don't cause it.
    In fact, eczema is one of the auto-immune diseases, which mean the immune cells attack own organ (in this case, it is skin).

    1. What is Auto-Immune Disease?

    • There are at least 80 types of auto immune diseases. They can occur in many organs and cause various symptoms. 
    • Auto inmune diseases result from a confused immune system attaching normal body tissues. 
    • This is unlike a normal functioning immune system that only attracjs substances that are harmful to the body such as bacteria, viruses, toxins and cancer cells. 

    2. How does consuming Meat, Dairy products increase the risk of auto-immune disease?

    - Eating meat and dairy products raises the risk of auto immune diseases. 

    Example those who consumed the most dairy products had almost twice the risk of deceloping inflammatory polyarthritis as those with the lowest consumption. 

    • The intestinal lining can become inflamed due to the intake of substances such as alcohol and drugs. 
    • The intestinal inflammation will lead to LEAKY GUT SYNDROME which cause most of the auto-immune diseases. 

    • Inflammation causes the release of chemicals that dissolves the membranes of intestines. 
    • Food is digested in the stomach and intestines and broken down into small molecules that pass through intestinal walls to enter the blood streams.
    • The intestinal wall acts as a filter and protective barrier
    • If this filter is 'damaged' (a common occurrence during inflammation), there will be increased permeability (commonly referred as a LEAKY GUT).
    • This allows incomplete digested big molecules to pass through the intestinal walls into the blood streams. 
    • When these incomplete big molecules accumulate in certain organs, they stimulate the immune system to react by initiating the inflammation responses. 
    • While attacking these foreign substances, the immune system may mistakenly attack the neighbouring organs, thereby leading to the auto immune diseases. 

    3. What are other risk factors?

    Drugs, gender, smoking 

    4. How to reduce the risk of auto-immune diseases? 

    Fortunately recent evidence indicates that decreasing intestinal permeability by eliminating certain substances from the diet may be helpful. 

    With the changes in eating habit, and lifestyle change, the auto-immune diseases will improve and be prevented. 

    5. Long term use of medication will not be an ideal solution.

    In fact, after understanding about the root cause of eczema which is due to malfunctioning of immune system, we can go for natural remedies to improve the condition through 

    6. What are the natural and safer solution to eczema? 

    3 Step-Solution to improve your eczema:

    Step 1: Eliminate meat and dairy products from diet (including cows milk)
    Step 2: Keep a diet low in fats and vegetable oils (including biscuits, cakes)
    Step 3: Take high antioxidants and phytochemicals superfoods to balance out the immune system
    Oxyginberry Beverage which is made by cactus, cactus fruits, ginseng berry, grape seeds, rose and seaweed are rich in disease-fighting nutrients.

    Parents Must Read: How and Why to Introduce Allergens to your Infants

    Parents Must Read: 
    In the last decade, prevailing beliefs about timing the introduction of highly allergenic foods to babies have undergone a sea change.
    For decades, parents were advised to delay introducing allergenic foods until 12 months (cow's milk dairy), 24 months (eggs) or even 36 months of age (fish, tree nuts, peanuts). Then, in 2008, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) retracted its previous guidelines on the matter, acknowledging that there was insufficient evidence to support delayed introduction of allergens as a strategy to reduce the risk of food allergy. But beyond that, the organization did not offer specifics as to whether there was an ideal window during infancy to introduce these foods, nor did it comment on whether delaying introduction of foods might actually increase risk of developing food allergies.
    As a result, pediatricians and parents have been in limbo since 2008, lacking clear guidelines as to whether early or delayed food introduction could help prevent babies from developing food allergies. As more observational research on solid food introduction and risk of food allergy became available, the body of evidence began to point in a relatively consistent direction: Early introduction of common food allergens seemed associated with a lower risk of developing food allergies compared to delayed introduction. Some pediatricians found these studies compelling enough to start advising parents to stop delaying the introduction of allergens past 12 months. But lacking sufficient evidence that met the "gold standard" of scientific research—randomized, controlled trials—other pediatricians continued to feel it was prudent to follow the delayed introduction approach until better evidence was available or official guidelines were issued.
    This past January, however, the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology (AAAAI) released a new set of recommendations on infant feeding practices to help prevent food allergy. The recommendations are based on the available observational research to date, and are the first guidelines to state that delaying introduction of foods like wheat, cow's milk dairy, eggs, fish and nuts may actually result in an increased risk of food allergy or eczema.
    The AAAAI recommendations state that once an infant over 4 months old has tolerated a few non-allergenic solid foods (think common early solids like rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, carrots, bananas, apples or pears), parents can proceed with introducing other more allergenic foods without delay, ideally at home rather than in day care or a restaurant. As with introducing all new solids, only one new food should be introduced every three to five days to help isolate triggers of any allergic reaction.
    Importantly, the guidelines also note that exclusive breast-feeding for at least four months may be protective against cow's milk allergy in infants. Lastly, they found no significant protective benefit against food allergy when mothers avoided allergenic foods like dairy, egg and peanuts during pregnancy or lactation.
    Ultimately, how to introduce allergens is a personal decision you'll make in consultation with your pediatrician. If your infant already has eczema or signs of a food allergy—or if a sibling has a peanut allergy—your pediatrician may refer you to a pediatric allergist for testing and individualised guidance.
