Natural Therapy for Eczema and Dermatitis

Having seen a couple of cases of adult dermatitis and baby eczema I started revising the HPA axis again as during a session I could observe a sense of density and a lack of expression of fluids around the kidney/ supra renal area; in one of the cases I had an awareness of the Pituitary gland starting to have a re-connection to the supra renal area.

This is a very interesting article I’ve found online:


Eczema and Dermatitis

Eczema and other dermatitis are common conditions for the Highly Sensitive Body. The cause for this condition is high inflammation and immune responses in the body. The associated factors include toxin accumulation due to low liver and kidney detox function, Candida and Leaky Gut Syndrome, food and environmental allergies as well as malfunction of the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal system. For those with chronic eczema all above factors can be involved. Addressing any one of them may not be enough to completely help the situation. A systematic and comprehensive approach such as IBMT is needed to help the body out of the chaotic stage and start the healing process.

Liver Blockage and Toxin Accumulation

Liver blockage is not a biochemical concept, because conventional medical tests usually don’t show abnormality, but a functional issue in the energy level. For most of the time, liver problem is not due to the liver itself but the over accumulation of toxins in the system. Thus helping liver alone may not be very helpful to treat eczema clinically. But liver therapy is necessary to detox the body and is one of the major parts of the program to treat this condition. Here is a list of factors involves the liver and toxin:

  • Alcohol
  • Virus and parasite
  • Medication
  • Toxins: heavy metal, pesticides, additives, chemicals etc
  • Stresses such as emotional stress, anger e.g.
  • Poor sleep

Candida and Leaky Gut Syndrome

Intestinal problem is the major issue for eczema and dermatitis. Most of the eczema patients have intestinal problem no matter if they have the intestinal complaints or not. Toxic colon is the major source of toxins in the body. Candida, bad bacteria and parasites produce toxins and the toxins are recycled back to the system through Leaky Gut and wear out the liver detox function. In the meantime the toxins lead to high inflammation and hypersensitive immune system and cause autoimmune response and skin damages. Fixing digestive system is the major focus in treating eczema and other dermatitis.

Food and Environmental Allergies

For many eczema cases, allergen is so obvious that the root issue can be easily missed and allergy becomes the only cause for eczema. As matter of fact, allergy is only a symptom on the surface of the condition. Many factors contribute and create a base involving toxins, autoimmune response and adrenal malfunction. Without helping the whole body balance, treating allergy alone may not have lasting result. However, allergy can be a clear trigger for the eczema. Identifying, treating and avoiding allergens help the eczema recover faster, while addressing the root issue makes the result lasting.

Common food allergens for eczema include dairy product, egg, wheat and seafood etc. Other foods make eczema worse through other pathways. For example, sugar leads to Candida outbreak; alcohol damages the liver function; spices increases inflammation level etc. Common environmental factors for eczema include household chemicals, fabrics, animal hairs and air pollutions etc. Treating allergies with Immune System Reprogramming helps calming immune system and reducing inflammation and in turn helps eczema outbreak.

Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal System

All of the chronic cases of eczema involve malfunction of the HPA system. Frequent occurring and lasting skin damage indicate the low adrenal function, which causes hypersensitive immune system and low regeneration ability of the skin, respectively. To completely help eczema, HPA system has to be addressed sooner or later. In the later stage of the IBMT, a supporting protocol specifically improving the HPA system, liver and intestinal lining is often used to make sure the eczema will not come back in the future.
