By now, you should have got the drift of how to clear eczema. Single ingredient oils like olive and coconut or balms such as shea butter, are gentle on the skin and and also feed it. After using different lotions and potions for myself (even natural herbal ones!) I realised less is more…
Steroid creams are a definite no-no as they only suppress the symptoms and with long-term use can even thin your skin. However, for those of you who can’t live without them, all you need to do is mix a little of it with a simple oil that suits you, and lessen the quantity of the cream little by little.
You will only need to do a bowel cleanse twice or thrice a year. Parasite cleanses should be done after your bowel cleanse. Then your body is ready for a liver flush.
Your body will thank you for the internal cleansing and you will find yourself with more energy and cleaner blood and skin. After each cleansing, you will notice things you were allergic to no longer affect you.
Your diet should stay simple by only eating what you fancy after your skin is clear. And only once a week at that as you may find your skin getting itchy again.
If you have scars, it is best to take wheatgrass juice 1-2oz daily in the morning on an empty stomach. One hour before bedtime, drink an avocado soup or smoothie. This will feed your skin at night and you should wake up with much less wrinkled skin. Also remember to get at least 7-8 hours sleep at night as this is when your skin is repairing itself.
Lessen Your Stress
If you live in the city, it’s so easy to get caught up in the rat-race as you go about earning a living. Everything has to be organised and you may feel like a hamster on a wheel trying to get so much done in 24 hours.
One good friend of mine organises her life by writing a diary for business and a journal for her thoughts about her prayer life.
She is one very organised lady and I admire the fact that she never gets stressed about anything even though she has had her fair share of misfortune. Therefore, none of us has the excuse of not finding the time for organising our lives the week before the week before!
To lessen your stress, you only need to buy 2 day-to-a-page diaries. One for your personal thoughts and one for business/work/social appointments and outcomes.
This may seem like a lot of writing at first, but you will notice that this is much better than holding a lot of important information in your head and trying to organise your life from your memory.
If you find writing a chore, you can ask a good friend to help you. The simpler the better.
Plan Your Goals Ahead…
Just set your goals each month and put them in order of importance.
An example could be to find a good school for your child and getting all the relevant information about the school like; calibre of the teachers, distance from your home, does it provide healthy meals, etc.
All of this may seem unrelated to clearing your eczema, but a clear mind, free of stressful emotions, also leads to a stress-free life and also clear skin.
My hope is that as you persist in helping yourself recover, you will blossom personally as a result. Smiling each day or even having a good laugh from your favourite Disney cartoon like Tom and Jerry!
Friendship and Relating to Others
We all have friends and family who we appreciate for their acts of kindness. However, some friendships and how we relate to others should be closely reviewed from time to time. To enable them become richer in spirit and produce good fruit.
The fruits of the Holy Spirit are ,
- Patience in doing good
Love is kind, bearing all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
May the joy of the Lord Jesus be upon you and be gracious to you.
Peace – may the peace of Christ and mercy be upon you
Patience in doing good. Do not grow weary in doing good as the Lord will repay you, Always watch and pray to avoid temptation.
Faithfulness – Keep being good and consistent in doing good to yourself and those around you.
Self-control – This is knowing when to speak and how to say it. Concisely. Your tongue is like a rudder and guides you into paths of righteousness.
Who is a good friend?
A good friend is a person who listens well and understands your potential to receive healing. Even if you only have one or two, they will encourage you to be kind to yourself and speak peacefully with your family and friends.
They will also encourage praying. For the people around you who have less understanding about who you are.
Forgiveness is the key to richer friendships. This means you should both have the ability to say “Sorry” and mean it…Also, you should both be able to forget.
Whether you are young or older, you will find great peace when you do so.
There are 3 ingredients to good health – Faith, Hope and Love.
Faith is believing and trusting yourselves to forgive each other by God’s grace
Hope is longing for each other’s improvement with God’s word
Love is letting go of the past and seeing the best in each other and also praying for each other..
Praise and worship: When you worship God for 10 minutes a day. Then the next day 15 minutes. Then the next for 20 minutes…
Is this clear?
Wprship God more and more each day and let him know that you are a child of God who spends time worshipping, thanking and doing His will.
Early on, I learnt the Lord’s Prayer –
Our Father who art in Heaven
Thy kingdom come thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive others who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever, Amen
I think on these words more and more each day and find more understanding of the Person who said them.
God made us all to be kind to one another with our words, and also actions.
If you are having a hard time with your skin…and are actively in the process of healing, then you will find great peace in being at peace with God, yourself, family, friends and others.
Here is a little prayer I say each day – do feel free to join in –
Dear Lord – I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart
that God has raised him from the dead.
Thank you for saving and healing me
Thank you so much! You are awesome!
Every day is a new day to show how much you love me…
Feel free to think about these words for 5 minutes or more…
You will find that as the days pass on you will not only be feeling better, but it will seem as if little problems are solved easily as well…And that is another subject that God can handle to your good. Believe you me!
If you have any comments or questions, feel free to leave them here…

Thanks for the tips.
I personally suffer from eczema and so does my little girl and it is so annoying, especially in the heat.
Do you have any natural eczema creams to recommend? I do agree that most of the creams that are advertised out there just look like a bunch of chemicals that seem to aggravate more than soothe and heal.
Hi SJ, I am glad you enjoyed the tips. One of the main culprits causing eczema is sugar which should be cut out of your diets. Sugar causes an overgrowth of candida yeast in the gut – this then causes inflammation. You could try using even a natural cream and it would not prevent the root cause.
As your daughter is still quite young, the best thing to do is dilute all of her juice with water, and continue diluting every day with more water until she is just drinking plain water.
The only cream I recommend is Forever Living Aloe Vera Gelly mixed with olive oil.
This helps if you both have dry eczema. If wet eczema, then I recommend a clay paste as mentioned in my post about body masks. This helps to dry out the blisters and when dry follow with the aloe vera gelly mixed wth olive oil.
The good thing about the aloe gelly is that it is cool and soothes itchy skin.
Please tell me how you get on…
Good evening Stella,
I fully agree with you. Go the natural way will be more than beneficial for clearing skin problems of all sorts.
Virgin olive oil and especially coconut oil are such a help for the skin and one can use them internally and at the same time externally. A healthy lifestyle with as little stress as possible will also help and taking care of putting “clean ” food in your mouth. Nowadays we are surrounded by radiations, bad air, drink bad water and the food is GMO, full of pesticides, sugars, bad fats, you name it.
You keep informing people about this, a really good idea.
Good evening Taetske!
Thanks for your thoughtful comment! Most of us only realise what is good for us when our health sends out a warning..
I’m glad you like the information given..
Good afternoon Stella,
Thank you for answering my comment. Is it not sad that even if we have so much technology at our fingertips and scientific advance people are not healthier? I personally think it is because we have turned away from nature, nature which actually provides for most of our needs.
Good morning Taetske,
Yes, we are often so busy rushing around that we prefer a ‘professional’ to give us a quick fix – which can be dangerous for us if the so called ‘professional’ does not really know how to treat symptoms of health conditions. We often have to pick up the broken pieces of our lives afterwards.
I am living proof – the only good thing is I, I have learnt from my journey and want to help people realise that they don’t have to suffer in silence.
It is good to meet someone like yourself who thinks the same way.
