  1. Soy milk FTW! Thanks again Dr Greger!!! 🙂 Need to watch out for that hidden egg…

  2. It's not a skin disease. It's systemic intracellular acidosis, a lymphatic system problem. In other words, it's a kidney/lymph issue
    caused by eating proteins and fats. It's no wonder western medicine can't cure anything when they don't understand anything.

  3. I had to be that one person who's eczema got worse on plant based diet.. I suspect soy or gluten intolerance, if that dont work, idk what to do..

  4. Going vegan helped my eczema but being gluten free and vegan has almost eliminated it. Just a tiny patch that flares up every now and then and working on figuring that out.

  5. Great, now how about we just leave the asses and horses alone, just leave animals alone period. They and their bodies do not belong to us.

  6. A few years ago my eczema went away after changing to a plant-based diet! Thanks for the video! Continue changing peoples’ lives for the better🙌🏼☀️🌿

  7. Plant based almost 2 years. Eczema my whole life. It still manages to come back in waves, but the severity is much more minimal now.

  8. Increasing eczema is due to the increase number of vaccinations and also the amount of toxins in the environment such as Roundup.

  9. My Excema started flaring up about 4 years ago. I've been gluten free vegan for six months. No improvement, infact it has probably doubled in the amount of surface area on my body. I assumed a possible detox reaction but it has been 6 months. Guess I'm one of the unlucky 1/3. Some youtubers are suggesting refined oils, carbs and fats are the problem in addition to the usual suspects: animal products and gluten. This all points to inflammatory foods, of which animal products are the worst.

  10. My child had terrible eczema when she was a toddler. I took her off of 9 different foods for a month and challenged each individual food for 5 days. It turned out to be egg whites. I was shocked! I was just like moms mentioned in the study. I was just sure it wasn’t eggs, but it was. She has been egg-free ever since and doesn’t suffer from any skin conditions now.

  11. it sounds soo out of touch with reality to be talking about oh can't drink cows milk try goats milk or donkey milk or horses milk how about you are not a baby how about no milk and not to mention the fact your a Human being

  12. My son is 12 and he's had eczema problems his whole life. We used to live in Greencastle PA, and when he was 4 we moved to the SF Bay Area. He's fine here. No problems. However anytime we go back to visit my family he's a mess in less than 24 hours of landing. Then it will disappear in less than 24 hours of plane take off. Before our move it would mostly be behind his knees and elbows, maybe a little on his face. Now it's a full body issue. I have no idea what causes it. But he eats the same here as there…My parents have a well for water. And I've been bugging them to get their water tested. His skin would just look more flared up after he'd shower, even a super fast shower. Next time we go back I guess I was going to try having him shower at my Grandma's, who is on a city water/sewer system. I would love any insights. I've been trying for years to get some answers, of maybe things that would help, but all I get from pediatric docs is prescriptions for steroid creams. Which the kiddo hates because they burn.

  13. I have this weird rash all over my inner arms and face and now under my arms.
    It’s spreading and my doctor tested it and said it’s eczema. I never once in my life have had it and it doesn’t run in my family. Nothing works. HELP!!!

  14. Dr. Greger has ruined yet another food for me. Now I have to give up egg whites to treat my Psoriasis. While I am extremely grateful for the information, it does makes me rather angry. Argh! I guess I'll be looking at egg substitutes now for my pancakes and muffins. Thanks Doc, What would I do without you? Now, please don't tell me the egg substitutes are bad for me too. (hehe) Seriously, why has it taken the medical profession so long to get this kind of information? It really bothers me that I have been battling this disease for 45 years and only recently been learning what foods are causing it. Also, where in the world do you get Ass Milk. hahahahaha

  15. Yep, this is my story. Went lacto-ovo vegetarian + occasionally fish, but still suffered from eczema. Whole food vegan diet, gone!

  16. So true! I have atopic dermatitis (and other conditions that are linked to it) since i was born (probably due to genetics – my parents have it as well) and back when i was eating an omnivore diet, eggs really were the worst trigger! Since i'm on a balanced whole food plant based diet (almost 2 yrs now), my skin got so much better!

  17. Going plant based/vegan definitely helped with my eczema. Removing dairy specifically may have been what got rid of it. Never ate eggs cuz I always thought they were trash. We eczema free now!

  18. After years of seeing different so called skin "experts" who never managed to sort out the issue, I changed my diet & I no longer have any skin problems. Cutting out dairy was the biggest factor. But I now only eat a plant based diet. The annoying thing is doctors had previously told me diet wasn't really a factor in causing skin problems, which it turns out was completely false advice. For anyone suffering with Eczema, I would urge you to try going plant based for a month, to see if it helps, as it completely cured me.

  19. What about….human breast milk…? 🤔 If it wasn’t just “weird” and “unnatural” to feed an adult baby formula from a mother of their own species, maybe we could….Put it to the test! 😂

  20. One of my friends commented to me the other day how really bad my eczema used to make my hands look, and now they are all better! Totally plant based cured it….I think it was "hidden" egg, as I have avoided eggs and dairy my entire life due to stomach upset with these foods. It has totally changed my life! Now I can sleep!

  21. HELP! Guys I'm trying to go vegan but the keto people keep saying that saturated fat is not harmful while the vegans say that it is, and they both have studies to back them up….. ugh just want to be healthy.

  22. I have seasonal allergies and still get eczema since going WFPB vegan, but it's SOOO much better now than when I was eating eggs and dairy.

  23. I went vegan a year ago (from being a vegetarian for 6 years) to combat my chronic acne and eczema, and my skin completely healed within a couple months. It's definitely the milk and eggs.

  24. Good Video! Wondering if to much time around electronics, wi-fi, and staring at a screen can also cause skin trouble?

  25. When our daughter was born, we were not yet vegan and she had some pretty bad eczema. Our pediatrician recommended that my wife avoid dairy. It was almost like a switch, as soon as she cut out the dairy, the eczema cleared up in a couple of days. She cheated and ate some cheese, boom, the eczema came right back. Needless to say, she stopped eating all dairy after that.

  26. Humans are 100% biologically herbivores, therefore we shouldn't be consuming any animals nor using any animal products. Live vegan everybody.

  27. I had a severe case of eczema a few years ago and my diet was absolute horrible. Processed food, garbage dairy, etc. etc. As soon as I cut these out my eczema TOTALLY vanished. It was truly a miracle. I cannot tell you how many nights I have suffered itching my skin. Before that I was on multiple corticosteroids and immunosupressants which did not help at all.

  28. Would the intolerance to egg protein be potentially related to vaccination? From my understanding, viruses are grown on a medium, often chicken embryo (egg) or beef embryo and when removed from the medium to be combined with the rest of the vaccine material a small amount of the protein of the medium may go with it. Injecting food proteins in such a manner could create a response to that specific protein. Looking back to 1913 when French physiologist Charles Robert Richet performed such tests on dogs where he injected small amounts of jellyfish protein and, eventually injected trace amounts of milk proteins and meat proteins into cats, rabbits and horses and found that the first injection seemed to create a sensitivity to the injected protein (when injected a second time some animals reacted violently and died, which Richet named “anaphylaxis”).

    This is not to start a vaccination/anti vaccination debate but to look at potential links to why these sensitivities are occurring.

  29. Heh, here is another patient. I'm in the middle of the transition from meat/egg-eater to vegan. About 1 year ago my doctor diagnosed eczema above my eye and on my hands, they were itchy like hell, my skin started to look like it peels. He described an ointment drug and the eczema sorta got better despite I was a really bad patient because I used the cream on and off.
    At the beginning of the spring it went away completely while by that time I completely forgot about the ointment.
    Now the eczema came back a few weeks ago when I ate 4 eggs daily for a few weeks and it was even worse than last year, more itchy. Later I abandoned the eggs (I wasn't even heard about veganism back then) because my stomach burnt all the time (I didn't know what was the cause) and the eczema went away again. 😀
    So this is true.

  30. My face is dry as hell. Seborrheic dermatitis. After eating eggs. I am going to try to eliminate them as well as dairy. To begin with.

  31. did they control for growth hormones and antibiotics, how clean were those eggs and milk? what ends up being the best substitute for animal proteins and omega3s?

  32. I love these videos on the research!! I use these daily with my patients and i have to say that the format of the videos with actual images of the research articles with highlighted portions in my opinion lend significant credence to the videos…

  33. It's gluten that causes me to break out. If I eat ordinary bread or spaghetti, I get rashes all over my body.

  34. I think that all these are different diseases and allergies..the reason for the poor health of the body is impure food, drink, air. it all aggravates the health of good body cells and immunity but has a good effect on parasites (hyrps, worms, and protozoa single cell)hidden in the body! these parasites are hard to find good masterpeice that even modern diagnostic medicinskie them to find! and from them it is necessary to get rid! they poison the body very much! This is primarily food (chemistry.GMO) and drink (chemistry.GMO) Ah and air (ecology)! etching the body and affects the good body flora of growth cells and immunity! of these three!!! problems of the modern world. at least two and better all three will be environmentally friendly, it is already possible to cure these health problems.

  35. I really appreciate what Dr.Michael Greger has done to transform our conventional medical thinking toward better health. So, inspired by him I jumped out of my comfort zone and now I am on target to make one video every 48 hours and already started a YouTube channel as a dermatologist and Naturopath 2-3 weeks ago regarding how natural medicine and healing power of our own skin and body could cure the current hair and skin issues and chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Cancer, Autoimmune diseases.
    I would love some support/feedback so please hit subscribe and check my current videos and the one I am about to publish in the next 48 hours. Peace to you all

  36. For everyone who has to deal with eczema: I had it for almost 18 years with constant inflammation on my arms, face, neck and scalp. I've been through treatment with all sorts of medication that all just fixed the symptoms and shifted it to different areas in the long run.
    I tried going vegan (side-note: I still am) which did make it much better but didn't heal it completely as I still had occasional break-outs on my neck and the eczema on my scalp never disappeared. But after half a year of being completely symptom-free now, I think I can finally name the culprit in my case: Commercial soaps, shampoos and conditioners.
    In January, I tried an artisan soap and shampoo bar for the first time and dropped the conditioner altogether (I use hair oil after washing instead) and within just 2 weeks everything got better. Even a chronic wound I had on the back of my head for close to 3 years suddenly healed.
    I recommend everyone who has eczema to try this, it's cheap and easy and it seriously changed my life. I am a much happier person without the constant itching.
