This week is National Eczema Week and this prompted me to write about how kinesiology can help skin conditions like eczema.
Anyone who has suffered with eczema, psoriasis or any other skin disease knows how problematic and painful issues with the skin can be. Cases range from mild to full-blown debilitating skin irritation.
For those who don’t know, eczema is a common skin condition that causes dry and flaky inflamed patches of skin that are very itchy and sore. The dry patches can split and bleed and need to be continually lubricated.
Eczema is also known as dermatitis. This skin condition, like many others, can come and go with bouts of flare-ups and remissions only for the eczema to resurface again. It can occur anywhere but usually affects the arms, inner elbows, backs of the knees, or the head – face and scalp.
Many people go to their GP with this skin condition and may even be referred to a specialist dermatologist. Conventional medicine recommends that the person avoid allergens or irritants and prescribes a variety of chemical emollients, creams and ointments to soothe the skin. If the skin is infected too, in some cases the skin may be treated with antibiotics. These routes can work for a time, but often they are unsuccessful and eczema can resurface later on again only for the person suffering to embark upon treatment again.
When looking at eczema as a Kinesiologist first of all I look at the liver function and see if there is any toxicity. I would also look at the digestive system for food intolerances and poor nutrient absorption and whether exposure to substances is causing an abnormal reaction from the immune system. For example is there a cosmetic or product the client is coming into contact with? I can also see if stress may also play a part in the reaction.
The root cause of eczema in babies can sometimes be traced back to breast milk and where the skin irritation is caused by food intolerance we would look at the diet and eliminate the food that may be causing the reaction.
In children suffering with eczema, as with adults, I would be testing for any other type of chemical or toxins present in the body caused by exposure.
I am trained to look at the different aspect of body in order to find the root cause of the problem to then take the appropriate steps needed to correct the imbalance.
One of my clients, let’s call her Natalie, was suffering with a bad case of eczema. When working with Natalie, I was able to identify that different layers were causing eczema in this young woman.
Liver cleansing was the first step taken and subsequent diet adjustment. During the treatment emotional components and geopathic stress showed up too. Taking the situation in steps, we managed to identify the real root cause of the energy blockage in the property and that was cleared. Immediately there was a sense of relief though it did not clear completely but strengthened and rebalanced the lady to a point that she was strong physically to address the emotional component.
For Natalie, it was a particularly strenuous journey but one that had a positive result with success.
As with Natalie’s case, rarely, if ever, there is one single solution to clear eczema. But, by working on the different layers causing the reaction means that symptom not only improves but also will correct itself for the long term and then clear forever!
