Eczema or dermatitis is an inflammatory skin condition which is marked by redness, itching, weeping, crusting, and skin pigmentation. Environmental factors such as soaps, detergents, shampoos, dust mites, pets, pollens, mold, bacteria, viruses, and fungi are a few to name. Heavy metals such as mercury and lead also play a major role in causing inflammation of the skin. Dairy and soy products, eggs, nuts and seeds, and wheat can also cause eczema. Emotional stress can make symptoms worse. Hormone imbalance may also affect the skin and worsen eczema.
Many patients may suffer from this condition for years and go from doctor to doctor using only topical steroid ointments, salves and antibiotics but never get to the root cause of the condition. Most patients with dermatitis suffer from leaky gut syndrome, have low count of friendly bacteria in their gut, and may have yeast overgrowth and sensitivity to yeast.
IV chelation therapy has been very effective in treating chronic dermatitis. We encourage patients to replace amalgam fillings in a safe manner and go through a series of IV chelation therapy to remove all heavy metals from their system. High dose IV vitamin C protocol is also utilized in treating dermatitis. Intestinal function is optimized by use of digestive enzymes, probiotics, glutamine, and aloe vera. Its essential to rule out leaky gut syndrome and if present to treat it completely.
Antifungals are sometimes used to treat candida and other fungal infections which may be the underlying cause of dermatitis.
How to treat dermatitis:
- Strengthen your gut by taking probiotic and eradicating yeast and bad bacteria
- Take high dose Omega 3 fatty acids
- Chelate heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and aluminum
- Take digestive enzymes
- Treat parasites and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
- Take Glutamine and Zinc
- Eliminate allergenic foods such as gluten, soy, corn, eggs, or citrus fruits and see if there is improvement in your symptoms
