I recently saw a young boy with mild eczema. His Mum wanted something more natural and more importantly to achieve a lasting result. Below is the review from his Mum:-
“I took my son to see Tracey to help with his eczema. I didn’t want to keep using steroid creams to deal with flair ups. Tracey gave him a remedy along with a steroid detox and 3 months later the improvement is fantastic. No longer any need for daily emollients, any small dry patches are controlled using a natural chickweed cream. My son’s eczema was quite mild so he dealt with the changes to his skin very well. I would highly recommended anyone with skin conditions to try homeopathy it really works ! Thank you Tracey”
The homeopathic approach to helping eczema symptoms (or in fact any condition) is very different to the conventional approach. During the first consultation I ask lots of questions and try to establish the root cause to find a lasting result without suppressing any symptoms. We encourage the symptoms to leave the body rather than go deeper into the body.
Usually we find that a child that has had eczema and has a history of using cortico-steroid creams will usually go on to develop asthma. This is because the initial underlying cause of the eczema was not addressed, and whilst the initial symptoms went away, they were in fact suppressed and pushed further into the body.
The philosophy behind homeopathic medicine is that we address the underlying cause and aim to push the symptoms away from the body and away from the more vital organs (inside to outside). As you see with eczema, if the symptoms are suppressed they go further into the body and the lungs become involved. The skin and the lungs are closely linked, as are all parts of our body.
Mothers of young children who use inhalers usually tell me that their child’s colds go to their chests and they have been prescribed anti-biotics in the past. This of course helps to clear the chesty cough and cold, however, prolonged and regular use of antibiotics can then lead to upset tummies and disturbances in the gut. In time, this can lead to other problems such as anxieties, ADH etc, and on it goes.
