Dermatitis – Help for Eczema and Psoriasis

Dermatitis (Eczema and Psoriasis) just a label!

Unfortunately, most dermatologists are fixated on medical labels for dermatitis (eczema) and psoriasis offering palliative treatments for these distressing skin problems.

Recently, I had a young 13yr old girl that had very severe atopic dermatitis (eczema) worse in the scalp, creases of both elbows, knees and legs.  She had been on prednisone and anti-inflamatories for 18 months with no results.  Her parents were very concerned not only because of her clinical condition and non-responsiveness to conventional medications, but because it was now adversely affecting her self image as she entered puberty.  She had become socially reclusive and mildly depressed.

Help for Dermatitis (Eczema and Psoriasis) with specialized testing

In cases of dermatitis (eczema and psoriasis).  I advise patients to seek a doctor who is able to think outside the box and who offers testing for mineral analysis, heavy metals, fungal overgrowth, non-pathogenic bacterial overgrowth and allergy testing.  On carrying out these particular tests on my 13-year-old patient I found dysbiosis, intestine permeability, high levels of both aluminum and mercury and the allergy testing revealed allergies/hypersensitivities to gluten, corn, soy, milk protein, and sugar.

If the protocol above is followed, in most cases you can be successful in getting to the root cause of dermatitis (eczema and psoriasis).  All of these patients need stool analysis, food and chemical allergy testing, I use AllerCease™.   Sometimes a hair tissue mineral analysis is also required.

Test findings often find these conditions

The majority of these patients have some form of intestinal dysbiosis such as yeast-fungal overgrowth, selected bacterial overgrowths, leaky gut, and/or a compromised immune system lining their G.I. tract.  Blood chemistries frequently show increased eosinophils, interleukin-4, increased immunoglobinΕ and growth hormone factors.  Hair analysis often shows major mineral/mineral ratio imbalances and deficiencies.  In addition to food sensitivities, it is also necessary to routinely check for fabric, soap detergent cosmetic and chlorine allergies.

Treating Dermatitis (Eczema and Psoriasis) Patients

As for the treatments needed for dermatitis (eczema and psoriasis patients), I would suggest heavy metal detox, eradication of candida overgrowth and gut wall repair using selected herbs and nutraceuticals.  Also when a patient is found to be allergic to a substance, for instance, milk Protein.  It is easily and non invasively handled using the AllerCease™ technique.  This technique will handle most allergies in just one treatment.

I am glad to report that at the end of 5 months my young female patient was 90% free of all symptoms or signs of her dermatitis (eczema) and  she was able to enjoy an active social life.  In my experience, it’s a mistake to only treat the skin lesions or eruptions in cases of eczema and psoriasis.  It is essential for a doctor to think outside the medical box for the cause and eradicate it.  If they are going to give a patient lasting relief and in some cases their life back.
