Treatments for Eczema

Food sensitivity to, in particular, milk and wheat is a common cause of eczema and identification and suitable dietary avoidance can make a significant clinical impact. Salicylates and azo compounds have also been implicated and reducing the number of foods containing these can also help. Sensitivity to mould, spores, dust and dust mite can be helped by avoidance techniques as well as desensitisation techniques such as neutralisation, Isopathy and enzyme potentiated desensitisation can all have a part to play in the management of eczema. Nutritional approaches using evening primrose oil in high doses as well as hydrochloric acid and vitamin B complex can also be useful. Herbal medicine using traditional remedies such as marigold tea can help itching and traditional Chinese herbal medicines have been shown to be highly effective.

The Natural Practice will use a lot of different techniques to help this condition. The whole of the benefit of an integrated medical approach is that a number of different approaches are brought together to support the patient and where possible to enable them to throw the condition off. We should stress that each treatment plan is designed individually and it may consist of one or more interventions than are mentioned here.
