I have three kids. One is a daughter with no health problems at all. The other two are boys, both with eczema. When my second son was diagnosed (yesterday, in fact), I suddenly began making connections I had never even imagined when working with my first. I thought of the fillings in my mouth--that, incidentally, I got while pregnant or just before getting pregnant with my first son. I thought of how both boys had candida growing in the folds of the skin on their necks, behind their ears, etc. And suddenly I wondered if there was a connection.
An hour or two of research told me there most likely is. I can't wait for our appointment with my older son's naturopath next Tuesday to discuss all these things with him.
In the mean time, I found this thread: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/260393/eczema-interstitial-cystitis-ibs-and-yeast
A JaneS was telling her story, and she connected all three--eczema, yeast, and heavy metals. I just joined and for some reason can't PM anyone. Or reply to that thread. However, I would like to talk to her. Anyone know how I can do that?
And has anyone else noticed a connection between those three things? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
I have heard that there is a connection. Are your children vaccinated? Vaccines also can contain heavy metals.
I have a 4.5 yr old son with eczema and he is unvaccinated and I had all my amalgams removed many years before I got pregnant so as for where his comes from who knows as nobody in my family of DH's family has it.
No, I have not had my children vaccinated. :) I do have fillings, however.
But I am beginning to suspect there is more of a spiritual element to my boys' eczema. This may sound weird, but I have a friend who can read quantum energy and interpret what the cells of the body are saying, at least within the realm of her knowledge (kind of like I can speak Spanish within the realm of my Spanish vocabulary--if I don't know a word, I can't interpret it). Anyhow, she says there is a spiritual dimension to their health issues, and I think she may be right. In fact, I am beginning to suspect that the emotional/spiritual health of the parents has a big impact on the health of the children.
I recently got the book The Healing Code and have been reading it and using it on myself. My husband ordered his own copy (he won't read it on my iPod's kindle app), so once he's read it he will probably start using it on himself. I suspect that as we resolve our own issues, our sons' eczema will improve. It's just a theory, though, and needs to be tested!
Interesting! keep us posted
I'm a little overwhelmed right now b/c my previously robust and totally healthy 3 year old just busted out eczema.
I was GAPS diet most of pregnancy, exclusively breastfed for 7 months, then traditionally prepared foods, no vaccines, and she was fine until we just moved. we're eating the same foods, same farms even, but she's got horrible painful eczema break-outs behind her knees. she's our 3rd child, has a very strong constitution, and this is really throwing us off.
Our entire household is gluten-free, GMO free, we have consumed a little more organic sugar lately (baking for birthdays and community), and a few less fermented veggies (haven't made my kimchi since moving in July), but it's really hard to figure out what to do at this point.
Today we took her off her beloved raw milk (grass-fed) for a week trial. we just cranked on the woodstove for winter, and that flared it up fierce. i suspect both mold and dust mites in this house, as well as scented laundry detergent (3 of the many things environmentally that have changed since we moved), so switched laundry detergent this week and just washed all her clothes again in a very dilute cycle.
help or advice anyone? it's so hard for her to not feel good and i'm ready to do anything to resolve this!
