Eczema and your gut
The first steps in healing your eczema begins with healing your gut. A lot of eczema sufferers experience leaky gut syndrome, that's why it is imperative to take care of your digestive system. The intestinal wall becomes overly porous with this syndrome allowing toxins to pass into your bloodstream triggering an inflammatory response. Allergies and food reactions follow along with eczema.
Unfortunately, this continuous cycle hinders the immune system. One of the best ways to mend the gut and reduce permeability is to adopt a diet with plenty of vegetables, high in fibre and plenty of fresh greens. Fermented foods are a top choice and so are probiotics like those found in yogurt. Flax, borage and pumpkin seed oils provide essential fatty acids vital to balancing inflammatory activity. While also limiting processed foods, dairy, meat, unsprouted grains and sugar.
There is a benefit to combining these fatty acids together. Supplementing omega 3,6 & 9 & fatty acids will help to create a balance of hormone-like compounds (known as eicosanoids), which helps to support your cardiovascular health, nervous system and your immune function.
Here are a few recipes to get you going! Remember that you cannot cook with the Mega Oil as it can be unstable at high temperatures. Mega Oil can be added to any already prepared dishes.
