Do you think a long fast could possibly allow the body to remove Seborrhoeic eczema from arround the ears?

There is just no doubt! Most forms of excema/dermatitis responds dramatically to fasting. Some of this response may be due to the increased levels of cortizone during the fast, but well, I do prefer your own cortizone to do it rather than a synthetic one!

If, however, it is slow to go, there is no problem with a short course of local application of a steroid to the affected skin, as the blood cortizone diffuses only very slowly into the skin.

Once the cycle of inflammation is arrested, regular fasting would likely maintain it although you should still play \"Sherlock Holmes\" and try uncovering trigger factors such as food or soap allergies, stress, etc.

From a Hygienic and Nature Cure viewpoint,\"fasting\" does not \"cure\" anything. It only provides one of the pre-conditions necessary to allow the body to heal itself. For it is only the body which heals, not the fast, or anything else for that matter.

With due consideration to the above we may then say with all confidence that if we adopt an Hygienic lifestyle, and fast when the body requires us to do so, then wherever and whenever it is possible, our bodies will heal themselves of whatever ails us.

In my experience, sebhorrheic eczma is readily healed by the body, permanently too, given that we choose to follow and live in the way I have enumerated.

Agreed.

Fasting gives your body the opportunity to reverse the \"flow\" of substance: No longer from the environment into the body, but from the body into the environment.

Remember that the \"disease\" was a manifestation of the end result of an interaction between you, your genes, your thoughts, experiences, exposures and environment, etc.

The excemas are not considered \"curable\" in even the best of dermatological circles. They are at best \"managed\" and if lucky, \"controlled\". But as John so elegantly pointed out, if you find the lifestyle that brings your body and your environment into harmony, there will be no need for this manifestation.

Great thread, and site,
I've had eczema ever since a bad bout of poison Ivy 6 years ago.
I went through a 14 day water fast 2 years ago with improvement, but not full remission.
I wanted to go further, but I though my body said not to- very weak and tired.

I'm on a fast now- day 9, and my doctor suggested if I hit a wall to drink organic vegetable broth in small quantities. I hit a wall yesterday, and it helped. Ironic that I saw in another thread that day 8 was a common tough one.

So I guess I'm requesting 2 things:
1) support during this fast/ fasting buddy.
2) Any insights on skin conditions and fasting.

Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.

Welcome with your first post dear Marc!

Always bear in mind that the same genes in the same environment is likely to result in the same conditions. Thus, you may de-activate your eczema but the same things that caused it the first time can cause it again. That is why a "once-off" fast for example will only cause a temporary remission. You need to make fasting a part of your life.

PLUS: Fasting helps mobilize the toxins or whatever in your case triggers the condition, but you still have to eliminate these. Thus please do perform several cycles of detoxification activity daily during your fast. And for good measure on other days also, for example each time before you go to bed..

I had a form of eczema if i translate it directly to english it would be, constitutional eczema. I had it everywhere, neck, inside elbows, behind the knees. High up the arms, and a wrist. Since i was only 3 months old i had it. I had seen many skin-dokters and creams.

After i deleted grains from my diet, most sugars and IF it has all disappeard. At 25. I think that in my case the grains played a great role. Maybe for some other people here this could be an option to try.

Do not take everything for granted. Smell for instance.

I had really bad skin disorders before my first fast.. They mostly healed and through this fast I plan to give them the right environment for them to heal 100% .. I notice mine flair up if I eat to much of anything (even watermelon) or certain foods.. The fasting I have done has lead mine to heal about 95%.. This time around when I start eating again if I choose to eat 100% healthy and sill keep up with fasting I bet it wouldn't come back.. Good luck to you..

Thank you Ubercute, that's a really valuable bit of information/advice. Indeed the proteins in various foods are responsible for various reactions.. NOT the carbohydrates. Protein allergies/responses are many, many times more common than carbohydrate reactions, particularly regarding starches.

And lovesolveall, you set an admirable example.

March, IF is Intermittent Fasting. We advise never to eat more than 6 consecutive days. That allows your catabolism or "fasting metabolism" to remain active indefinitely.

If this might help. I have seborreic dermatite in the scalp since I was a teenager. It then moved down to the abdomen. Fasting really improves the itchy scalp, moistens the hair which is dry, and makes the abdominal lesions, which are small macules, almost unnoticeable. However after the fasting it returns. It worsened in the abdomen when I was a vegetarian. It improved with cold water showers and when I eliminated dairy, gluten and soy and processed food from my diet and start eating meat again. It then worsened a bit, I think it was because of pork I will try to skip that also to see the effect.
Basically I will simply keep on eliminating every item I suspect of and see the result. The improvement I had in other more serious sympthoms I would never relate to food allergy are enough to justify it.
Fasting also helps on this, since it makes the person more reactive to allergens is easier to notice. For instance, been breaking fasting with citrins and get a really bad skin rash on my face after. So there's another one to go.
There is also the problem of the chemicals in processed food, you never know what they might do and it's more difficult to track, so better to eliminate them.
When it comes to the scalp avoiding anti dandruff shampoos, since the skin plaques released from the dermatitis may induce a person to use them, and also avoiding shampoos with high sodium content is a good idea.

Thank you for some excellent observations and advice dear Eurico! What you describe is actually how we prefer to do an elimination diet: To be more accurate, follow the following procedure (As explained on the forums before):

Preferably avoid completely the food you wish to test for 3 weeks. Then, after at least a day of fasting, break the fast with a known weight of the test food. (Weight calculated minus the moisture content). Take your pulse rate before you eat this food and again 30 minutes later.

Once you have a list of percentage pulse rate increases for various foods, you will notice some of them standing out. These are the likely allergens.

You can test a whole food group at one time (eg. dairy) and if you don't have a reaction to the group, you don't need to test the individual members of that food group.

Concerning chemical additives; I believe that if the word on the package twists your tongue, the substance will twist your gut.

The best thing to wash the skin with is pure water. All soaps are just there to make you feel cleaner and to mask your natural smell.. If you can induce sweat like in a sauna or hot shower, that sweat per se is also a very good skin cleanser.

Thank you André I will try to follow your tips, though in the pulse measure technique to determine the moisture might be tricky.

We usually forget that we are "eating" what touches our skin. Parabens, used in shampoos and cosmetics have been found in breast cancer tumours and can mimic estrogen.

Indeed the pulse rate and for that measure the entire elimination testing process is cumbersome and a real "schlepp"... thus reserved for people with really big problems in these areas.

Indeed also we do absorb a lot from the skin, sometimes even more from the lungs. But we have more control over what we eat and drink.

Just at a title of curiosity and because it might help other people with similar situation my allergy problem was scary since it resembled other more serious problems and could evolve to something worse, I imagine, but right now most sympthoms disapeared. And I'm not sure if it was only caused by allergy since to lactose it was clearly intolerance. One of the things I never expected to be related with what I was eating were small losses and excessive dribbling of urine that kept increasing with time but simply disapeared after changing diet. I had dry eyes, ear problems a sort of mute otitis and painless inflamation in my face at the bone level and also a painless sensation of swelling of the brain and intestines. The dairy were clearly related with the ear problems and bowels. But whole wheat grains seem to be related with the dry eyes, since I shortly tried to reintroduce whole bread and the the dry eyes along with contraction of facial muscles immediatly returned. Allergy or some effect on the stomach that affects facial muscles? Beats me.
TCM theory helped me solve the problem, I saw a rising of Liver Yang with some deficiency of the Kidneys, with Plegm complicating it. Removing the dairy removed the Plegm while introducing the meat, beef, organs, poultry and duck strengthened the Yin aspect. Not scientific but works.

Some of these reactions do sound allergic dear Eurico. The characteristic of allergy is that it is out of proportion to the volume of substance you are exposed to, and it occurs in areas of your body that was not exposed. But every food contains so many different substances, particularly in our chemical infused world, that it is often really difficult to pinpoint "the culprits".

That's why regular fasting helps more than most medical interventions. It relieves your body from ALL exposures and gives it time to consolidate its defenses.

Thank you doctor André I will try to do two separate days of fasting a week or one if I'm not able. And occasionally do some 2-3 days fast. Bearing in mind all these important things that you and other posters have been sharing.
