This is a book that I personally found incredibly helpful as I navigated my way through dealing with eczema and reducing my flare-ups.
It was also the first really good resource I had for understanding why foods containing salicylates and histamines were affecting my skin so much.
Eczema is a painful, itchy and incredibly uncomfortable condition for sufferers. The bad news is it’s on the rise. Babies are developing skin inflammation soon after birth. Toddlers with severe itchy skin and uncontrollable scratching are drawing blood. And teenagers and adults ashamed of their skin are wearing long-sleeved shirts in summer.
Eczema is a unique skin disorder with many of the standard health foods that are good for the skin, actually increasing the itch in eczema sufferers. Current medications can also have undesirable side effects. Nutritionist, skin expert and a mother-of-two, Karen Fischer is known as the ‘last hope’ for eczema patients who have tried every therapy and cream to no avail.
Inspired initially by her success in treating her own daughter’s eczema, for the last ten years Karen has treated eczema patients of all ages, including newborn babies. Now, in this second edition of her bestselling book, Karen brings you the results of her years of research and shares her tried-and-tested solutions for this heart-breaking condition.
The Eczema Diet evolved from her success with her eczema patients and her daughter. The Eczema Diet provides both dietary and non-diet information, including skin care and supplement advice. It is based on hundreds of scientific findings on eczema over the past 30 years, plus ten years of research and testing by nutritionist Karen Fischer.
