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.
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.
