What is Ezcema and allergy?

Recent advance in medical science research show clear evidence for the cause of allergy or Ezcema. Earlier it was defined as Atopic dermatitis which is due to a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) in the skin, which leads to long-term swelling and redness (inflammation) of the skin. People with atopic dermititis may lack certain proteins in the skin, which leads to greater sensitivity.

Some scientific studies shows that intestinal exposure to "diet" in early days of childhood is one of the prime cause for developing allergies to various dietary and environmental allergens. 

Our understanding and treatment logic: We have helped several children to completely cure this problem. Earlier age the ebtter the response. see testimonails of cured people.

For several decades of our research we found the following facts.

1. Children born in  C-section deliveries have more tendency to develop skin rashes. Interestingly the tendency is lesser in countries like India.This is because in normal delivery, when the child passes through the vaginal canal of the mother, healthy bacteria in the vagina enter into the baby's intestines, mouth and also sticks on the skin. But the baby out that comes through C-section does not get this healthy bacteria to the gut and skin. But the exception in C-section babies born in India like coutnries, where the environment is not clean, will still enter quickly into the child's body. Whereas C-section babies born to Indian mothers in western countries do get skin allergy and food allergies because the environment is cleaner.     Many Indians living in USA, UK and European countries would notice that their siblings or cousins living in India would have less frequency of having babies with eczema and allergy problems.

 2. What is the reason for some children born in vaginal delivery get allergies: If the mother has unhealthy bacterias in her vagina, then a baby through the normal delivery can still end up with the same problem of allergies, because the child gets unhealthy bacteria into the gut. The role of unhealthy bacteria in Gut is reported in the most prestigious Science magazine ( Science vol 334, 7 October 2011, page 45-46), a study revealed that long term effect of diet will change the gut bacteria and will improve the immunity of the childran and also allergies.  It says " The trillions of symbionts in the large intestine profoundly affect our metabolism and immunity.  Accordingly, abnormal  bacterial communities have been indentified in several human diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases, colon cancer, irritable bowel syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases.

Connection with Gut bacteria and Eczema:

 We think

Lactobacillus acidophilus  (informally known as Doderlein's bacillus) colonizes the vagina during child-bearing years. As a lactic acid bacterium, the organism creates a low pH (acidic environment) on the tissues which prevents colonization by potentially harmful yeast and other bacteria. The microbes that normally live in associations with humans on the various surfaces of the body (called the normal flora), such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, are known to protect their hosts from infections, and otherwise promote nutrition and health.

 

In C-section babies, since the child's body is not exposed to micro-organisms and but only is exposed to food proteins that the mother eats and comes to the baby through baby's milk and the environmental pollens and food particles. Now the immune system thinks that these are foreign and start to attack the food or environmental proteins that the baby get exposed.


Microbes and diseases: With the successful invention of penicillin to kill micro-organisms, modern allopathic medicine made a huge impact in saving lives from bacterial infections. But when this invention went into the pharmaceutical companies and doctors, it was abused stealing the health of many people. New research in the 2010 to 201 shows that the bacteria in the human body (sepcailly in gut) is needed for  health. Read this link especially Gut flora in human infants.

    Our common Indian practice was to give children neem and turmeric paste every day and also do castor oil cleansing and then give butter milk. It was an ingenious way of good health. The castor oil cleansign the system, changed the microbial gut flora and neem adn turmeric killed the undesirable bacteria in intestine. The butter milk supplied good vitamins secreting bacteria after the cleansing. This is like cleaning weeds in our garden and throwing good or desirable seeds in the garden.

    Due to many modern life stlye changes we have altered the human gut flora which contributes to our health. Traditional health practices indirectly took care of the micro flora in the gut.

   With the increased use of anti-biotics not only as medicine but also in food and diary products will cause increase in many diseases.  Anti-biotic genes are present in Genetically-modified crops (GMO) and are given to cow feeds liberally to prevent infections. All these anti-biotics then get into our human system and change the bacterial population in the gut leading to various diseases. It is believed that after the introduction of genetically modified Soybean the incidence of allergy increased. The new proteins in the GMO foods could change the gut bacteria of the mother and also the baby that could have an influence on health. It is therefore advisable to use non-GMO (organic) corn, Non-GMO (organic) soy products during and after pregnancy.


 

Toxins in Mother's body: On top of that if the mother's body is full of toxins then the immunity is weakened leading to poor immunity and or hyper-active abnormal immune response, the allergies.  Mothers who had less nausea and vomiting had children with more incidence of allergies than mothers who had nausea and vomiting. Vomiting is a natural mechanism for the body to throw out the toxins. This is why we recommend to do cleansing to remove toxins before planning pregnancy.

Simple remedy: A traditional Indian practice is to give castor oil drops with breast milk. One drop of castor oil is mixed with one teaspoon of breast milk and given to the new born baby everyday in the first week. Two drops of castor oil is mixed with one teaspoon of breast milk and given to the new born baby everyday in the second week. Three drops of castor oil is mixed with one teaspoon of breast milk and given to the new born baby everyday in the fourth week. This is done for six weeks and then there after six drops of oil is given once a week for next two months and then the same dosage is given for once a month till age of one year.

 The above is an excellent medicine to detoxify the baby and prevent from skin rashes. The mother is also given castor oil once a day, few drops with her food to prevent these health issues in the children. (This year 2008, we witnessed a baby child being given this castor oil (St.louis USA). The child was absolutely healthy without any health problems.

Oil to reduce scaly red skin: Apply Kukui oil or Organic Jojoba oil  on the baby's skin to reduce scaly and redness. Applying any steroidal creams only suppresses the immune system from reacting.  Instead you can apply a natural anti-histamine which can prevent allergic reactions on the skin. Make a paste of  Couch grass  on the areas with little coconut oil. You can also make a medicated oil by making a paste of the leaves with less water and add to heated coconut oil. Simmer it for few more minutes and then save it in a clean glass bottle. Apply this oil every alternative day with jojoba oil.

Fermented rice: For children more than three to six months, few drops of fermented rice water or rice with water can be given to give healthy microbial flora in the gut. This way they may overcome the allergy problems. Give in small doses for a while and see if the child accepts it and continue for few weeks or months. Click this link for information about  Fermented Rice. However for a very young baby of three months to six month old , one should give only the fermented rice water and be careful that the child should not develop diarhoea or dysentry.  The fermented rice has millions of healthy bacteria that when grows in the gut of the baby might help to prevent allergy and eczema.
