The main function of the skin is to act as a physical, chemical and antibacterial immune system. Studies have shown that stress and inflammation of the intestines can affect the integrity and protective function of the epidermal barrier. This, in turn, leads to antimicrobial peptides produced in skin infection and fall and dermatitis in increasing severity. ”
Homeopathy is such treatment. I have many patients who swear and love it – and it really helped some people. However, looking at all survey data, it seems that it is not consistent and reliable.
Sunflower Seed Oil
Ceramides are a barrier to the skin that strengthens the naturally produced fats in our body. Many cosmetic companies improve their moisturizing ceramides that complement the absorption of these fats. Sunflower oil can stimulate the production of natural ceramide in our body, which in turn can improve the skin barrier. Natural oil also acts as an anti-inflammatory, which may be beneficial for patients with eczema.
In some small studies, we examined how we use natural power to improve the inflammation of the skin. One of the studies discusses the distillate of sunflower oil. Researchers divided fractionated oil and it turned out that patients who for three weeks sunflower oil used in conjunction with steroids, had much fewer lichen formations (skin thick and rough due to friction and scratches). Probably it meant that they ate less because they did not make much difference. Although further studies are needed, this small study has shown a beneficial outcome for many patients with safe treatment.
Another interesting natural ingredient that is popular in skin and hair care is coconut oil. Studies in the treatment of atopic dermatitis in patients showed that Staphylococcus bacteria on the skin is 95 percent, coconut oil was applied to the skin (compared with about 50 percent decline in patients instead of using olives). This is not surprising, because most patients with severe atopic dermatitis are moderate skin that is colonized by staph bacteria, even if they do not have an infection. This treatment is safe for most people and is widely used in other countries.
One of the objections that should be taken into account when considering food for the doctor is the appearance of allergy. We know that the use of food proteins to open the skin may increase the risk of sensitizing the person to these products. Fortunately, I do not see it with coconut oil or sunflower oil.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be a more natural way of fighting yeast because it has some anti-strain properties and can help restore the skin’s natural, healthy state in the sense that the light is acidic. If our skin is more acidic (pH is around 5), it will remain strong and bacteria will not grow well.
On the other hand, if the skin is alkaline or alkaline, it begins to interrupt and the number of bacteria increases. Patients who do not like whitening can try apple cider vinegar as a safe and friendly treatment.
We know that stress plays an important role in atopic dermatitis. When patients develop stress at all ages, they itch and regenerate. That is why it is logical that stress as a massage can help people with atopic dermatitis.
In one of the studies, the massage therapist teaches parents patients 20 atopic dermatitides between the ages of 2 and 8 years, how to give their children a massage. Then parents gave their children a massage for 20 minutes a day. A month later, when the child’s skin was compared with children with atopic dermatitis who did not receive a massage, the researchers found a significant improvement in all critical eczema remedies. Researchers also found that mass groups of children and parents have fewer symptoms of anxiety.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Acupuncture is a beautiful, complex system that I learn and learn. One of the studies that came to my study of acupuncture in my head was the examination of patients suffering from a disease that causes renal failure (organs that filter toxins in the body). If the kidneys are bad, people are attracted and can die.
Acupuncture was used to stimulate the chest point called the thick intestine 11 in the group of patients. Another group received a placebo that did not cause significant body placement. The researchers found that patients undergoing acupuncture experienced a significant decrease in itching, while no significant change was observed in the placebo group. We wanted to try this method in patients with eczema, but because many of my patients are stuffed, we chose acupressure.
Eighty percent of patients taking vitamin D improved and did not notice deterioration, and all placebo groups remained basically the same. Other studies have shown that people with low levels of vitamin D are generally worse than eczema than people, and therefore they support this idea. In the Western world, most people have a vitamin D deficiency because they spend a lot of time indoors and protect the sun from skin cancer. I usually recommend my patients to use vitamin D supplements for normal care.
There are many unclear data on hypnosis because they are associated with atopic dermatitis. But I think hypnosis plays a role in patients with eczema, especially when it comes to stress. Think of it as a relaxation technique that will help you walk in a quiet room and calm down. It can also help strengthen the connection with the body, mind, and skin.
Of course, in the treatment of eczema, hypnosis has its own barrier: patients need to find a therapist who can undergo treatment that is expensive and often does not include a ban. For those who are interested in hypnosis for free, they will have access to Skin Deep, a free online book by Massachusetts Dermatologist Ted Grossbart, Ph.D. The book shows the reader how he can do a simple picture of himself.
For people with atopic dermatitis, the concept of bathing can be very misleading. Some doctors say that too many baths dehydrate the skin, while others recommend blinking twice a day to prevent water loss. Sometimes you will hear, the doctors say it is best to use a balm and the skin is still wet or it leaves the tub for 10 seconds or for three minutes or seven minutes.
Bad treatment has been recommended for a long time, but we do not have much evidence for the best practice, and many of these are not research-based. When I was in the Merger Allergy Working Group and wrote current treatment guidelines, it turned out that there was only one study in which we could rely on all recommendations!
Can a bath in special water tanks be more therapeutic than a bath at home? There is a lot of good evidence that aging can help. The problem is that it is difficult to determine which aspect of the SPA experience is useful. It can be a bit confusing to explain that water itself is part of the therapeutic experience.
Thermal bath in the south of France is used to treat people with terrible eczema and psoriasis. During this time, people in the holiday environment receive sunlight and warm weather (also known as climate therapy). It’s funny! You are in France! How can you not be relaxed and happy? Of course, the problem is that traveling to France is expensive and time-consuming. For most of us, this is a temporary solution. However, some studies have shown that patients with atopic dermatitis have been improving for more than two years.
An article published last year showed that some types of staph bacteria are toxins, and when this toxin is placed on the skin of mice, it can cause eczema even in normal skin. We are still learning what this means to us, but maintaining a healthy community of normal bacteria in your body, microbiology is a new field of research.
Some studies have shown that newborns with limited intestinal bacteria also have eczema annually. Infants with more diverse, healthy intestinal bacteria reduce the risk of annual eczema. We do not know exactly what it means, but it is intriguing in the relationship between bacteria in the skin and intestines.
