Eczema – Are We Too Germaphobic?

2 min read

Can being to germaphobic in fact lead to conditions such as eczema, allergies, and psoriasis? With all the information people can accumulate on germ and diseases nowadays, the more sterile it becomes. Allergies are more commonly found in the developed countries that have access to air cleaners such as air conditioning, improved windows and home insulation, and air purifiers. Developing countries have less reported cases of allergies and allergen byproducts such as asthma and eczema.

Because of all these ways of eliminating germs from entering our bodies in a natural way, the less adaptable our bodies become to ward off disease. Our bodies were designed through our natural immune system to manufacture antibodies to eradicate germs. Society today tries to keep out all germs before they have an opportunity to attack. These methods are detrimental to the development of the immune system. When there is a deficiency of microorganisms in the body the system doesn’t “learn” the necessary steps to fight off disease.

One product of being so sterile is that children and adults suffer from allergies, asthma, psoriasis and eczema. These are four common reactions to a person not coping with germs. There are many topical treatments for these ailments, though rarely do they have a curing effect. We need to delve deeper in order to cure these diseases.

Allowing yourself to suffer from beginning to end of a cold can aid your body to fight off the next cold more efficiently and eventually guard you from actually contracting a cold or even the flu. One of the most important ways to help yourself is to eat well. By consuming more vegetables and fruits your system cleans itself. Vitamin E and omega 3 fish oil can help restore moisturizing compounds required in your skin. Try to eat more organic products. Most of the food grown these days is missing soil nutrients due to all the pesticides in the ground.

Eczema is a non-contagious disease that can be embarrassing, materializing as a rash on various places on your skin. The most frequently found places for eczema to flare up are the legs, arms, back, and with many cases the scalp. Eczema can be painful and itchy. Using a mixture of made up of 50% apple cider vinegar and 50% water (I would use distilled), dab it on the infected areas. If you are suffering from eczema on the scalp simply massage the mixture into the scalp and let sit for an hour. If the mixture stings, add more water to the mix.

Many people are turning to natural cures for a mixture of reasons. Unfortunately, these treatments can take a while to work. Some folks tend to see this as not working for them so they give up. Find what has worked for others and perhaps this will cut down on the time you spend searching for a cure.
