Allergies and Eczema: why it’s important to
treat the cause, not just symptoms More people are understanding why treating
the root cause of health problems is much more powerful and effective, than just treating
the symptoms. It’s actually very important not to mask symptoms.
Because symptoms are a part of your body’s communication, to tell you that something
is wrong. When the body is out of balance, symptoms
arise to get your attention. These symptoms need to be respected and listened to, rather
than be suppressed, as unfortunately some medications do. Eczema is a great example of that. In conventional
medicine, many times the symptom of eczema is suppressed using steroid medication.
Of course it’s understandable why someone would want a red, uncomfortable, and itchy
rash to go away. A steroid medication usually does that, but often times, as soon as you
stop using it, the rash comes back. However, if the CAUSE is addressed, it leads
to a more permanent healing. While there is a genetic susceptibility to
eczema and allergies, environmental factors plays a great role in its development. Naturopathic
Doctors refer to this as the “total load,” in that a cumulative effect of stress (mental
emotional, physical), continual exposure to the allergens, a weak immune system, poor
digestion, alcohol, smoking and chemical pollutants can overwhelm the immune system and eventually
lead to the allergy cascade. Treatment therefore involves reduction of these factors.
Part of this reduction involves addressing food sensitivities, which is on
the rise. The most common food allergies are
dairy, gluten, eggs, That said, there may be other foods that could
be triggering eczema. There are a few specialized lab companies
that test for IgG delayed food sensitivities. Identifying these can provide a great deal
of information to those with chronic lingering symptoms besides eczema, such as IBS, constipation,
diarrhea, fatigue, acne, and chronic inflammation. Another method, which is the gold standard,
is called the Allergy Elimination Diet. This involves complete avoidance of all the suspected
food allergens for at least 2 weeks followed by their re-introduction, one at a time. Should
certain symptoms such as eczema dissipate upon elimination, this alone is a sign that
there are food allergies involved. And should the symptom return upon re-introduction of
that food, complete avoidance of that food is recommended. Allergy Elimination Diet is
a powerful way to make the connection between how particular foods affect the individual’s
energy and overall health. Also keep your home free of chemicals, mold
and dust, and use hypoallergenic products. Finally, I have found homeopathy to be very
effective in the treatment of eczema and seasonal allergies. Homeopathy’s effectiveness is dependent
upon the selection of the correct remedy based on the individual’s constitution. Homeopathy
is safe for babies, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, and does not have side effects like
certain antihistamines or decongestants.
