How Gut Health Affects Eczema and Skin Wellness

How Gut Health Affects Eczema and Skin Wellness
I want tell you about one of those things that completely changed my son's eczema skin, having this info in my hands gave me the power to relieve eczema in a safe way.

Let me explain... Studies suggest that a imbalance in the gut health could be linked to the development and worsening of eczema.

The intestinal microbiota are the bacteria that live in our gastrointestinal tract and it plays an important role in digestion, metabolism and immune system regulation.

A balanced microbiota exists in a healthy gut, and dysbiosis (the term for the microbiota imbalance) occurs when the equilibrium is lost.

And you may wonder... what does all that have to do with eczema? Well, dysbiosis affects the body's immune response, allowing harmful substances to pass into the bloodstream and trigger inflammatory responses (including eczema flare-ups, remember, eczema is a type of inflammation)

Here's what you need to do to improve gut health for eczema relief

  • Eliminate processed foods, no junk food, no sugar or gluten, avoid foods high in trans fats.
  • Have a balanced and healthy diet, eat fiber, vegetables and fruits.
  • Include probiotics and prebiotics in your diet, probiotics are found in foods such as yogurt, kimchi and kefir. Prebiotics are found in foods such as garlic, onions, asparagus, plantain, etc.
  • Include fish in your diet such as tuna, salmon, sardines, etc. You must decrease the consumption of red meat.
  • Foods rich in carotenes will also help (carrots, spinach and pumpkin)

It is important to know that each person is unique and management of eczema and gut health can vary from person to person.
