Homeopathy To Heal

Eczema: Many People Are Itching And With No Relief – Homeopathy Heals

6 Comments

On Facebook, I came across this article from NPR on eczema.  The article talks about how a lot of people these days are suffering with eczema, (atopic dermatitis) and not much has helped in really healing them. There is use of corticosteroid creams and other topical ointments, but there is no healing. After reading this article, I thought it would be helpful to address how homeopathy can be helpful for people who suffer with eczema.

Many people are suffering with eczema, babies through adults. Many moms call or mention to me that their child is experiencing eczema. Or they might say that eczema runs in their family, that they had it as a child, and now their child has it. A healing with homeopathy can break this tendency in the family towards eczema, so that the tendency or susceptibility towards eczema is not being passed to another generation.

Symptoms of Eczema

The symptoms of eczema are very uncomfortable. They are not life threatening, but very uncomfortable. cartoon eczemaSome of the symptoms are itching, painful areas of the skin, rawness, redness, scaling, oozing, crusting over, and bleeding from scratching so much. The eczema can be on any part of the body, and often it is on an area that is easily seen by others. The person suffering with the eczema wants to cover the eczema eruptions, hide it, so no one will see it, but cannot if it is on the face, hands, arms, feet or lower legs. The person is concerned with how others may perceive their skin, and wonder what will they think of them.  (This can be true of any skin eruption – how others perceive it, and how other may react.)

What People Do To Help Themselves

Eczema Is Not A Skin Issue; It Is A Systemic Issue

Eczema is not a skin issue. Western medicine treats it as if it is only that. Eczema is a systemic issue, which is manifesting or showing up on the skin. Systemic means affecting the entire body. The eczema is not local to the skin. It manifests on the skin, but it is coming from a deeper disturbance, an imbalance, in the body.

The usual treatments of some kind of corticosteroid creams or ointments used topically may seem as though they are healing because the itchiness and the eczema are relieved. But this is usually only for a short time, and the eczema returns. If the eczema does goes away, other symptoms may develop such as breathing issues and asthma, or muscular type pains.

These kinds of treatment with corticosteroid creams are very suppressive. Suppressive means to keep from giving vent to. By using these ointments, the expression (the skin eruption of eczema) of the disturbance or imbalance has been closed off. There is no longer an outlet for the disturbance, and the disturbance needs to manifest somewhere. It therefore goes deeper into the body, and actually becomes more life threatening, such as having breathing difficulties. This is the reverse direction of Hering’s Direction of Cure.

Healing Eczema With Homeopathy

The healing needs to be of the whole person, at the core, at the disturbance, at the imbalance of where the symptoms are coming from. And the healing needs to fit the person, in how they are experiencing their eczema uniquely to them. How is the eczema for this person?  By understanding through observation and listening to the patient talk about their eczema and other things about themselves, a homeopathic remedy is selected that fits them. It is a homeopathic remedy for the person, who has eczema, not a homeopathic remedy for the eczema. This  homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing ability, and the eczema heals, as well as there is healing at the core, at the disturbance, at the imbalance. There is a healing of the whole person.

If you, a family member or a good friend experience eczema, asthma, or once had eczema, and you are not feeling well, see how homeopathy can be helpful for you.

  1. Have you heard of hazelwood for eczema? I don’t know if it helps only the symptoms or also the source. Might be something that can be used along side homeopathy.

  2. No, I hadn’t heard of hazelwood for eczema. I just googled it. Seemed to be mixed reviews. Not sure if the healing is at the source. And it is a one size fits all thinking. I wouldn’t do hazelwood and homeopathy at the same time. When you do homeopathy, you want a clear picture of what the homeopathic remedy is doing. It gets confusing if you do too many things at once.

  3. If eczema is not caused by an unfit diet, it is exacerbated by it. I use homeopathics. =)
