Root Causes Of Eczema

By: sadhivm
For years, no one has been quite sure what it is that causes the itchy, red flakes called eczema. The condition has affected an ever growing number of people worldwide, and strikes children, babies and adults without discretion.

Eczema will generally be found on the faces and necks of younger children, and on elbows and behind the knees of older sufferers. It is a stubborn, red and itchy rash that an awful lot of people live with but would like to get rid of. The question is, how?

Eczema is actually a symptom of an ailing immune system. When sufferers are brought up to top physical condition and treated for any other health problems, they find that their eczema fades away as a result. So basically, eczema is a side effect of generally low health and often an allergic reaction.

So where do you begin to tackle the problem? Chances are you have no real idea what might be causing the immune system issues, nor do you know what you might be allergic to. If this is the case, a trip to your doctor or skin specialist may reveal the allergen or other health issues you need to address to clear up your affected skin.

If you are not allergic to anything and still need to blast that itchy red patch, the best place to start is your diet.

Why is this? Most minor health problems, especially those that are skin related, can be traced to an unbalanced diet. People in general are eating too many processed foods high in salt, sugars and hydrogenated fats. These are all no go foods when it comes to taking care of your skin, so remember that!

If you want to beat that rash you've got to focus. Stock your cupboards and refrigerator with whole grain breads, lentils, barley, brown and wild rice, leafy green vegetables, carrots, broccoli, pears, apples, pomegranates as long as it is fresh, it is a good option for you!

The more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains you get inside you, the better for your skin and overall health. Is that not worth the transition from addictive processed foods to natural, healthy foods?

Despite common beliefs, vegetables do have a wide range of flavours that can only truly be appreciated when the craving for salty, sugary, fatty foods (not to mention their related toxins) have been removed from your life.

The high vitamin and mineral counts in common fruits and vegetables will do wonders to set your whole body on the path to balance. With a diet that takes full advantage of these plentiful nutrients your skin condition will be helped from the inside out, your immune system will be strengthened by the healthy foods and subsequently the eczema will fade into the background.

When battling eczema, you must keep these factors of the disorder in mind. Like most skin disorders, eczema has both genetic influences and dietary ones. Although you might be susceptible to eczema or other kinds of skin conditions, you must always remember that these things can be helped with nutritious food and a healthy lifestyle.

Bin the junk food, cut out processed foods and sugary snacks, bring in some bright, fresh vegetables, fruits and put base your diet on whole grains and you are bound to see an improvement in the health of your skin. What is more, you will have an overall health rating far greater than you started with, start now, eat right and get rid of that pesky eczema!
