Book Description

June 1 2005
It's a short, simple, drastically different diet--not necessarily easy, but simple and effective. The goal of this guide is to help people with eczema or almost any kind of skin disorder heal themselves without ongoing dependence on drugs, creams, lotions, or other medicine by relating what worked for this author personally to cure her eczema, dermatitis and acne. There's a lot of information out there, especially on the internet, but much of it can seem vague or conflicting regarding the combination of symptoms you may have. Waterford did a lot of informal research and trial and error over a long period of time and eventually cured her eczema, general health, and most of her allergies with a natural diet. If you've had no luck with doctors, allergy drugs, cortisone cream, or other eczema treatments, this particular combination of treatments that she stumbled upon may also help you.

I decided to write this after discovering that my life-long, severe eczema came from inside, not outside as I had always heard and read. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Use Food, Not Drugs! June 15 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I got this as an eBook from iUniverse.com, to get it quickly -- this is the type of diet that I think everyone knows instinctively they should follow to get healthy and clear up practically ANY illness, but the difference here is to stick to it long enough (about 6 weeks in the book) to work for as a treatment and cure for skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and acne, which are all so stubborn. I've had it since childhood and now it's finally 95% cleared (and no more need for Doctors to put me on antibiotics, which, according to this, make it worse in the medium to long run!) But when I try going off the diet, it starts creeping back. First the inflammation, then itching, then the tiny eczema blisters. If you or your child have skin problems, (or even allergies, as this worked on that for me to), please get on the diet and stick with it!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars More like a pamphlet than a book... Jan. 28 2012
By Kathryn
Format:Paperback
I think you can research the internet and get better information than this book provides. Although I appreciate her efforts to document her personal experiences there is not enough science backing for my liking. I think this book is over priced for the information it contains.

3.0 out of 5 stars One piece of the puzzle May 31 2008
By Tenna Merchent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book focuses on the fungus aspect of eczema. Most natural health care practitioners will tell you that fungus is always present with eczema. Even the pediatrician we saw told us that fungus was always a problem when eczema was present. So she has a piece of the puzzle, the problem is it is only one piece to a sometimes extremely complex problem. It's like saying that people with eczema have a zinc deficiency. Well of course they do, their skin is blowing through zinc with every break out, but that doesn't necessarily mean a zinc deficiency is the cause, it can sometimes be a symptom.

She was able to greatly reduce her eczema with a strict yeast diet. I agree that a very strict yeast free diet can reduce the symptoms, but that is a very difficult way to live, because every time you cheat, you're back at square one.

She explains that she had to resort to topical steroids to finally get rid of the rash. I completely disagree with the use of topical steroids. This simply suppresses the illness, which will often then manifest in a deeper condition, the most frequent which is asthma.

Dr. Bernard Jensen in his classic work Chemistry of Man (Man Series, Second Edition) had numerous cases of eczema clear up simply by switching from cow's milk to goat's milk. I've personally seen a case of childhood eczema that was so severe the child had difficulty walking, completely clear up simply by discontinuing cow's milk. So I would start there.

We eventually found our cure through homeopathy. While we consulted with a professional homeopath, she just wasn't able to see the case clearly enough. Homeopathy is different than traditional medicine because they don't always use the same remedy for the same condition. It is highly personalized, and you have to find the exact match to your symptoms, overall health, and personality.

I eventually ended up enrolling in Homeopathic school myself, and through a series of events was led to the book "The Homeopathic Treatment of Eczema" by Robin Logan. It is in print, but for some reason is not currently available on Amazon. In it he lists 42 different possible remedies for eczema; the trick is to find the best match for your case. I had to read the book in its entirety two times before I figured out which was the best remedy for my son. For us the guiding symptoms were that it was significantly worse on the right side, he's aggressive, bites, kicks, pulls hair, and has red streaks after scratching. It sounds odd I know. But it pointed me to the right remedy.

So she has a part of the problem that can help you minimize outbreaks until you find the correct remedy. It just wasn't the complete answer for us.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starter, but not enough information... Aug. 20 2005
By D. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a tiny little book that is a good primer on treating eczema, or more accurately, an overgrowth of Candida Albicans, via diet. It gives good, basic information on implementing a yeast-free diet, along with a helpful section on herbs. What it lacks? Meal plans, adequate recipes, and further information on cleansing. I bought this book, and followed the diet, as well as implemented the suggestions on herbs. However, there is more to tackling Candida albicans, i.e. internal cleansing, than is covered in this book. I purchased "The Coconut Diet" along with this book, and found I used "The Coconut Diet" as much, or more, in treating my eczema and allergies. So if you purchase this book, plan on buying another book on Candida albicans to supplement. Or, you can just purchase "The Coconut Diet", which was as helpful to me as this volume.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deceptive title - not for all Eczema sufferers July 15 2005
By Full Moon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I believe the title of this book is misleading, perhaps for the marketing purpose, to tap in to the people suffering from eczema.

The author did have eczema, it seems, and rather severe one, but what's different from my case was that she also had "candida overgrowth" or what's usually called yeast infection, on skin. So, her diet focuses so much on "clearing the yeast out of your system." I admit I didn't try her diet, but I didn't want to because I didn't want to get sick from not having enough nutrients due to this very partial diet. (I didn't want to take many supplements because of it.) It may be true, at least to some extent, that "yeast is an interferer" which is not making your eczema go away completely, but I strongly believe that's not the case for many, many people with moderate to severe eczema problem. I also bought "Skin Deep - A Mind/Body Program for Healthy Skin" together, and I don't think I need any other book. I strongly recommend "Skin Deep" than this, unless you suspect you have the yeast infection as part of your problem.

By the way, this book is very thin - a little thicker than brochures - 43 pages, including the references, just so that you won't be surprised when you get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works -- like Atkins/South Beach PLUS April 19 2006
By Redder5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have to say this does work: I always wondered why my little spots of rash on the insides of my elbows and sometimes wrists would go away when I was on a diet! I tried this with the grapefruit seed extract (which I like about this diet, as it was all natural -- not pushing any product like some of the reviews, and other books) and it really cleared up the hives. Now when I eat something really carb-y or sugary, I know why it comes back! But not as bad as before, and at least now I now what causes it and what to do. Thank you!!!
