Eczema and Food Allergies: Eczema, or atopic dermatitis is a skin disorder that causes inflammation of the skin. Some of the symptoms are itchiness, redness, dry skin, cracking or blisters. Around 20% of the population is affected by eczema or skin inflammation.

Eczema and other skin disorders can be controlled by avoiding the “triggers” which are causing the symptoms. These “triggers” can be food allergies/  food intolerances.

When the foods triggering the response are discovered and then removed, the eczema can clear up as long as the triggers are avoided. Even healthy foods can be a trigger for eczema. A food intolerance can occur with any food!

Psoriasis and Food Allergies: Psoriasis occurs when skin cells have an abnormal replication rate. In psoriasis, the skin cells divide 10 times faster than in normal skin. Because of this fast replication, skin cells can’t shed so they accumulate which causes the silvery scale skin. If the immune system is weak or if digestion is not functioning properly one result can be psoriasis. Identifying food allergies or TOXIC FOOD REACTIONS  is important when dealing with psoriasis because you can learn which foods may be triggering this toxic skin response.

Acne and Food Allergies: Your skin is an organ that eliminates toxins. An overabundance of toxins in the body can cause skin inflammation. This inflammation leads to clogged pores and acne. The best way to eliminate acne is to identify the foods causing the skin reaction. Food allergies are a major cause of acne and skin blemishes. The worse the acne, the more food allergies an individual has.  The immune system is basically fighting off the foods as if it was invading the body to harm it. This is what causes the inflammation in the skin and the body’s need to eliminate the food toxin.
Skin tests do not test for “delayed” food allergies or food intolerance.
