Essential Oils to Relive Pain and Itching From Eczema or Psoriasis: A Natural Skin Healing Protocol from St Pete Natural Doctor

Did you know that Eczema an Psoriasis is an indicator of a larger health problem?  Most of the time you might find yourself searching for a quick fix that addresses the topical inflammation, itching, flaky dry skin and burning pain of eczema and psoriasis.

When I work with my clients who have one of both of there very frustrating issues I first begin by addressing their gut health.  Its quiet unexpected, but its necessary and it's really the only way to truly get to the root of the issue.

While this isn't the blog article I where I wanted to delve into the gut healing program and protocols I set up, I do think it's important to address this as an important topic in addressing the topical conditions and symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.

There seem to be more younger clients walking through the doors of my practice and this honestly concerns me.  This is what I have observed as I see these young babies, toddlers and children:

  • 100% have been given at least 2-3 months of antibiotics and/or steroids during the first 9 months of their lives
  • 100% of their mothers have some inflammatory condition of the body (RA, Fibromyalgia, Food Allergies/Food Sensitivities, MS, Arthritis, Gum Disease)
  • 100% are chronically constipated (BMs only 1x a day or less)
  • 100% are using toxic, chemically loaded body soaps
  • 80% are breast fed for a min of 3 months
  • 75% have serious food allergies: soy, dairy, nut
  •  50% have psoriasis or eczema that never clears from onset
Beyond internally addressing these skin conditions, one of the things I address is topical treatments that heal, moisturize and rebalance the pH.

Here is a basic list of the protocol I recommend:
  1. Switch to Dr. Bronner's baby liquid soap (light blue label)
  2. After drying skin, soak cotton balls with Apple Cider Vinegar and apply on all infammed areas.  
  3. Moisturize skin with coconut oil
  4.  Apply pure- unadulterated essential oils of tea tree oil, lavender and frankinsence
  5.  Repeat 2-4x throughout the day. 
Clearing any skin irritants is essential to promote healing.  Then using antibacterial and antivirals helps minimize external bacteria from further inflamming the skin and the Apple Cider Vinegar is great for rebalancing the pH of the skin and it also helps to reduce the bacteria.

The one thing I want to communicate is that the skin is an organ the absorbs what we pot on it... meaning using materials, soaps, lotions and oils MUST be clean, and devoid of foreign substances and chemicals that further cause irritation and actually promote the continuation and worsening of the psoriasis and eczema.

I hope this helps you and your little ones!
