From a mother whose children suffered from eczema, I know this to be true. Once we worked on the gut flora, the eczema issues began to resolve. Check out this amazing article on Infant eczema…
I love my growing belly, but one thing that’s driving me crazy right now is how much it itches. I developed eczema after moving to cold, dry Massachusetts after happy years spent in warm and humid climates. In trying to better understand the causes of my eczema, I’m learning a tremendous amount about the bacteria that live in our guts and how it might be linked to other things, like my childhood allergies.
