SEVERE ECZEMA / SKIN RASH

This is the healing story of a little girl with FOOD ALLERGIES and Severe Blistering ECZEMA!  
Momma brought in her 2 year old daughter, who had a rough start to life.  At 3 months old, she
started having skin rashes.  And not just a little skin redness and itchiness, she would blister, peel and
ooze from head to toe!  As anyone would, they considered all things she contacted… breathed…and
ate.  She was nursing, so mom tried avoiding common food allergens.  And still the blistering rashes
worsened.  

So, of course, they took her to the doctor, and after basically just looking at her, he offered
prednisone… with the potential side effect of dwarfism.  There was NO ATTEMPT to even answer the
question WHY was her skin was so irritated.  

That didn’t seem like a good answer, so they turned to alternatives…acupuncture, natural medicine,
homeopathy…and still, the skin worsened.  From 6 months, to 18 months, a full year, the rash was
horrible, the baby was miserable, and mom and dad were desperate for some answers!  

While all these doctors and natural health practitioners provided NO relief or ANSWERS, Mom was
able to figure out that if she ONLY ate beans, lentils, tempeh, and chicken, the rash was reduced to
tolerable.  They learned to live with “normal” eczema, a severely restricted diet, which (mostly)
prevented the severe blistering reactions.   

The next year (18 months to two and a half) was “land mine” year.  By that I mean that they tried to
stick to the extremely restricted diet to control her skin flares…and just when they thought life might
be “NORMAL” they would give her some sunflower seeds…and she would get red welts around her
lips.  Or they would slip and have a tiny bit of wheat, soy, nuts, fish, apples, oranges…almost anything
other than beans, lentils and chicken… and she would end up with a “head to toe” flare up of blisters
and oozing.

When I met them, Mom described that the discomfort and itching was still “significant” but they had
learned to live with the diet restrictions… and an irritable and angry 2 year old!  What ELSE could
they do!?  

I examined her for stressors using muscle testing…and what was quite interesting was that the
primary stressor or sensitivity was not to foods at all…but to formaldehyde!  Formaldehyde is
research documented to cause ‘intestinal erosions and inflammation.’  Intestinal erosion and
inflammation will lead to multiple food sensitivities and really, sensitivity to anything that passes into
the GI tract!  

Why!?  Think about the skin as a barrier, which it is…what if you scrape, irritate, and erode the layers
of skin until it is thin and weak!??  What happens?  Yup…it is inflamed and irritated when it gets
bumped…and if it is severely inflamed, even a touch could be aggravating.  

The chemical category of aldehydes are everywhere in our environment… pajamas, carpets, fabrics,
perfumes, and even wood contains formaldehyde or similar chemicals.  

With exposure impossible to completely control, we looked at how to help her body eliminate
formaldehyde.  A trace mineral called molybdenum is essential for the removal of formaldehyde from
the body, and that was our first “natural prescription”…which began the “4 R’s” of healing the
intestinal barrier.

The intestinal wall is a barrier just like the skin, that when eroded, allows undigested food and waste
to enter the blood stream, resulting in allergy and toxicity, just like broken skin allows viral and
bacterial infections to enter.  

The first R is Remove source of inflammation.  Check…,molybdenum helps the body naturally
eliminate formaldehyde.  (it could have been bacteria, virus, parasites, food allergies that weakened
that barrier…but in this case, it was chemical…formaldehyde)

The second R is to Replace digestive enzymes to fully break down food and prevent undigested food
from passing into the blood.  

The 3rd R is to ReInnoculate with healthy bacteria (probiotics), and the 4th R, is to Repair the
intestinal lining. We used a supplement called IgG, which is a protein from colostrum…that I refer to as
“re-nursing.”  It’s as close as you can get to starting over on nursing, which, among other things,
builds the lining of the intestinal wall.   

One other detail…while there are a million probiotics available, from yogurt, fermented foods and
drinks, and supplements…we tested the specific probiotic bacteria that strengthened her body.  The
strains that strengthened were lactobacillus rhamnosus and bulgaricus.  L.Rhamnosus is a common
beneficial bacteria, used in many yogurts and fermented foods, and has published research showing
benefits with allergic dermatitis!  L.Bulgaricus is less common, and was identified by a Russian
physician who was studying a community in Bulgaria known for their longevity.  He found this strain in
their yogurt, and in his studies, observed that it helps bind and eliminate environmental chemicals in
the intestines, thereby reducing the effects of toxicity, oxidation and aging!  

Just like a multivitamin and mineral has some molybdenum in it, probiotics with multiple bacterial
strains might have these species in them, but the lesson here is…you have to find the limitation or
barrier to healing and meet that need, specifically.  We had to boost molybdenum specifically, and
these particular bacteria specifically, along with specific digestive enzymes and healing proteins… in
order to achieve this:

This little girl’s
RESULT…by age 3, the rashes were completely gone, and she was able to eat
anything…wheat, corn, soy, nuts…without reaction.  No food allergies…no food sensitivities…just a
normal little girl!

This led me to the “sunburn” theory of allergies and sensitivities.  Which goes like this…if you have a
bad sunburn (inflammation)…and you put on a wool sweater, you might think that wool is not a good
match for you.  But if you keep exposing the skin to sun (more inflammation), you will finally decide
that you are “allergic” to all shirts and blouses!  So you go to work topless and are escorted home by
security.  

But, of course, the root cause of the sensitivity is the source of inflammation…and when you remove
the source, or in this case, help the body to eliminate the irritation, you can heal and wear clothes
again!  YAY!  

As a patient, you must ask…
“WHY do I have these symptoms!?”
