About Karen Fischer Karen Fischer can be an Australian nutritionist and award-winning author who specialises in eczema. Our doctor diagnosed it as eczema. Ayva would often scratch until her arms bled so we put mittens on her behalf hands that’s her in the purple jumpsuit with her Nanna.
I was a nutritionist and I hadn’t considered looking at treatment plans for my baby beyond cortisone cream and thick ointments. Ayva was identified as having walnut allergy, and dust mite allergy which meant she could longer sleep without, or touch, some of her soft toys.
We stopped using steroid creams and I started researching eczema and the role diet plays in skin health. By enough time Ayva was two I had devised a supplement routine and an eczema diet on her behalf and 8 weeks later, to my excitement and surprise, her eczema was gone.
I thought maybe it had been luck therefore i stopped the supplements now called Skin Friend and diet and her eczema soon returned. When I gave her the supplements and modified her diet slightly her eczema would quickly disappear completely so I knew it had been her health routine that was helping.
Because of the eczema supplements and diet Ayva could enjoy normal activities such as for example using fluffy toys, swimming in chlorinated pools and she could eat party food without her eczema returning occasionally. Ayva may possibly also pat our cat without breaking out in a red rash and she actually is no more allergic to walnuts. I had psoriasis and dermatitis On an individual note, in my own teen years and early 20s before I changed my diet I suffered from dermatitis. And I used cortisone steroid creams on my face and hands daily.
What I came across most surprising is what sort of regular healthy diet could be a area of the problem. Included in these are tomatoes, oranges, avocado, almonds, and broccoli to mention a few. It had been a genuine eye opener to find that the answer was something quite unique. At the right time, I really felt people who have naturally good skin just didn’t know very well what someone with skin rashes undergoes and how we have to eat ‘gentle’ eczema-friendly foods to keep the skin we have clear and healthy.
That is why I wrote my books, to greatly help people learn how to treat these conditions in a effective and gentle way. Sometimes it’s effort but it’s worthwhile. I wish you well in your endeavour to create beautiful truly, healthy skin.
