View Full Version : Naturopathic and homoeopathic treatments for eczema?
ok i have an appoitnment to see a Merilyn Jenkins in canberra, ACT to have my daughter excema treated
It is going to be a very expensive process from me especially being a single parent and a SAHM.
has anyone else has succes with treating Excema with Naturopathic and homoeopathic remadies..or will i just be wasting my money.
well i've spoken to my naturopath over the phone who said to put him on a good bacteria as it needs to be treated from the inside out. unfortunately he has been quite sick over the winter so his excema has been playing up. but between the good bact. and using the beauty and the bees organic cream his skin was starting to look really good. i am thinking of making an appointment as the dr wants me to put quortizone cream on him and i don't really want to.
let me know how you go.
The thing with cortisone cream that really bugs me is that it's so harsh on young sensitive skin and can thin the skin making it more vulnerable to outbreaks... I understand that sometimes it is the only thing that works but definitely treating it from the inside is the best way.... Applying a good natural moisturizer that doesn't increase the PH balance of their skin is higly effective....
My son has eczema... or i should say had... Once we corrected his diet and got him on inner health plus and treating the topical side of it with ph balanced 'natural' creams and washes we havent seen a flare up in ages.....
My next step was to go to a natropath but luckily we didn't need to... My son also has asthma and we were forever changing his preventatives because nothing was working... we also found that his asthma is so easily managed now... He is also on a non steroidal preventative now as before he wasn't....
Go for it hun..... as i said, it ws my next step...
A good friend of mine had her son treated by a natropath and the results were nothing short of amazing....
Good luck... x x
Waste of money for me - tried homeopathic and did some naturopathic (vitamins and probiotics). I beleive the probiotic is worthwhile for genreal health (did not help eczema) but the rest did not make any difference until we found the trigger (food) and worked on that.
If you consult an alternative practitioner of any description, please google the type (not necessarily the individual, though I would recommend that too) and the level of success (not testamonials, but actual data and clinical research).
For example, we have a Chinese Herbalist we go to for massage/accupuncture etc. We consulted him about DD's eczema and he mixed up a concoction for her, but told us not to use it until we got a liver function test for her as a baseline and were prepared to have one done every 6-12mths during treatment, as some herbs can cause disturbances in liver enzymes. I researched it and we decided to wait a few years, see if she grows out of it and if not, we'll do the LFT and start probably around the age of 4. I trust him implicitly - he gave us good advice and was honest. Some practitioners might not be so honest.
