Dear Friends,here at Healthy Healing we are receiving a lot of questions about how to deal with skin problems. Skin problems like acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis are magnified in heat. Unfortunately, conventional treatments have not managed skin conditions very well at all. Most exacerbate symptoms or simply do not help.

Cool Down Skin

Soft smooth skin depends adequate EFA’s in the diet. Just eating fish or seafood 2 – 3 times a week noticeably reduces skin dryness or wrinkling, and can help ease psoriasis and eczema symptoms.

Go gluten-free. Some research and dramatic case reports showing improvement in psoriasis with the adoption of a gluten-free diet. Good replacements: rice (red, brown, wild, risotto), quinoa, amaranth and corn.

Avoid excess protein from red meat. It increases inflammation and sets up an acidic body environment, disastrous for good skin. Include proteolytic enzymes like Dr. Enzyme with Protease & Bromelain to improve protein metabolism. Take 1-2 caps 3 times daily between meals for the best results. (Also helps scarring.)

Herbal alteratives (blood cleansers) like burdock, sarsaparilla and red clover help eliminate toxins that show up as poor skin texture or skin allergies. Herbs like white tea and turmeric extract smooth skin texture and reduce redness. Take 2 caps daily as needed to reduce redness and soothe your skin.

Take extra care of your skin and of course use common sense about sun exposure. We all know powerful UV rays from the sun can seriously damage your skin. Double your protection if you have light-colored eyes and hair, and fair or freckled skin. Always keep a high quality aloe vera gel on hand for sunburn relief.

To Life-long health,
