Everyone is asking what is the cure for eczema. What’s the “magic pill” or the medicine that will heal eczema?
Many unfortunate people search far and wide for various medicines for their eczema condition. They seek complete healing, or at least some relief.
These same people may fall prey to false healing claims or fake medicines that don’t really work. They also may try real good medicines, but may not be the best method to get rid of their eczema.
My Experience with Eczema
I first started noticing how common eczema is when I first started taking in clients for homeopathy.
About a third of my first batch of clients had eczema. They tried to get rid of it for years without any success. Desperate, they came to me as a last resort after trying different therapies and medicines.
Thankfully, their eczema was eliminated after about 1-2 months of using an individualized homeopathic remedy that I gave to each client. Not only did their eczema go away, but they also saw improvements in other mental, emotional, and physical areas as well.
Ironically, after caring for these clients, I also got eczema on my feet. After some time, homeopathy helped clear my eczema as well.
You may be thinking now that I am trying to convince you to use homeopathic remedies for eczema. That’s not the goal in this post. I already wrote about that as well as my experiences with eczema in more detail in a previous article.
What I want to show you here are other very effective (and not effective) solutions that you should be aware of that are clinically proven.
Let me share with you how I discovered this.
An Interesting Email I Received
I received an email at the end of January 2017 from a blogger named Nav Gosal. She runs
eczemaliving.com, a blog that focuses on ways to manage eczema properly. She also includes clinical research on her sites.
Nav recently sent me an email wishing to share a chart with my followers and fans.
This chart contains a summary of different eczema solutions out there. It also shows which ones are evidence-based and which ones aren’t.
This chart is from Eczema Tracker.
Click on the chart below to check it out.
It’s really a cool chart. It shows you which solutions work best and which ones not as much.
After you click on the chart above, you will be redirected to Eczema Tracker’s site which contains the actual chart. Hover your mouse over each solution shown, and it will explain why a certain solution works or not. It also provides a link to the actual research so you can see for yourself.
Interestingly, I wrote about some of these remedies before such as apple cider vinegar, probiotics, and fish oil. These should be taken consistently anyways in my opinion for overall wellness, but it’s great to see them included as good or promising solutions for eczema.
Overall, the chart makes sense and can be relied upon. There are some things though that I don’t really understand. Here’s one example:
The chart shows that raw honey is superior to manuka honey in attacking eczema. The odd thing though is that manuka honey has more antibacterial enzymes than regular raw honey. It would make more sense that manuka honey should be better for eczema than raw honey.
I guess you gotta argue that with the researchers (lol).
Other than that, the chart seems to pretty much be accurate. I would definitely use this for myself and others.
So What is The Cure For Eczema? A Lot of Things
The above chart basically sums up the good and not as good solutions for eczema. I personally prefer homeopathy above all of these, but I think that the good solutions are great too. Everyone should pick the treatment that best fits them.
Speaking of homeopathy, I actually reached out to Nav about including homeopathy on the chart. Maybe the above chart may be changed in the near future if it works out :).
In the meantime, I hope the chart helps you make the right choice in getting rid of your eczema!
