I’m very excited to share with you this guide of all the information I have gathered together over the years, in my search to keep my own severe eczema under control.
Let’s get one thing straight – this book is not a “cure” for eczema because there is no cure. If you have eczema, you will have it for the rest of your life, but what you will learn to do is manage it in lots of different ways.
There are many types of eczema and many different causes (from a genetic predisposition to allergic reaction); this advice applies to all of them. Following some or all of this advice will hopefully give you long periods of time without eczema – and maybe if you are careful (and lucky) it may never come back.
I’m writing this book because in my business of hand-making organic skincare products (including a very successful natural balm that is helpful in the treatment of eczema), I am constantly asked for advice on keeping eczema at bay. I find myself saying the same things over and over again, day after day, so I decided it was time to put it all in one easy-to-read place. You will find this book split into simple chapters that you can dip in and out of as you need to.
Although I am a fully qualified clinical Aromatherapist, I would always advise seeing your GP for eczema and health related queries; this is particularly important if you think your eczema is infected. However, if you are looking for natural and sustainable ways to permanently keep eczema out of your life, then read on.
The information in the book are the things I have found helpful, I never make any promises about the same things working for everyone. But as I have spent years collecting all this information, I am sharing it in the hope that others will find it just as useful as I did. This is my own personal experience and journey; what you choose to try is up to you and should be done sensibly and with caution after you have come to your own conclusions or consulted with a professional.
