My Journey on The Eczema Detox Program

By Bonnie T. I have struggled with eczema for most of my life. I’m sure as any eczema sufferer reading knows, eczema can be a real pain in the butt. My personal eczema journey led me to Karen Fischer and her book The Eczema Diet and her Skin Friend supplements, which along with a commitment for change, healed my skin from the inside out. A few recent ‘naughty’ weekends indulging in gluten, alcohol and appalling food (yes, I mean crispy chicken and hot chippies), as well as stressful circumstances, have welcomed back my old adversary in an angry red, oozy rage. I’m...

What is the difference between The Eczema Detox & The Eczema Diet?

What is the difference between The Eczema Detox & The Eczema Diet?

The Eczema Detox was recently released in 2018, and since then we have received dozens of emails asking what the main differences are between my two eczema books. Well, there's lots...  What's different about The Eczema Detox? Firstly, what's the same ... The Eczema Detox follows the same principles as the original eczema diet book, as both books discuss the critical roles that chemical intolerances and food intolerances play in the appearance of eczema. So both books may be used together.  However, the new detox book is different in many ways: 1. The Eczema Detox contains A LOT more recipes, with mouth-watering images...

Eczema recovery 101: how to cheat during The Eczema Detox (or The Eczema Diet)

My eczema (when I had it) was on my face, especially around my eyes, and it was on a couple of fingers, and my recovery seemed to be pretty quick while on the Eczema Diet. The initial recovery was a 3-month period of following the diet religiously and taking the supplements, going through the detox process to get my skin clear. However, post my initial recovery I have since: travelled, had some set backs, seen some surprise flare ups, cheated, reintroduced foods and understood more about my patterns and triggers for eczema (post here). So I thought I'd tell you about my latest eczema...

Eczema Diet Christmas Menu

Christmas is a time for celebration, and if you’re like me and my family it involves eating a lot of food. However many typical Christmas dishes, such as ham, gravy and mum’s amazing trifle dessert (sorry Mum), can trigger eczema flare-ups if you are susceptible to eczema. Luckily there are tasty eczema-friendly alternatives ... Here is an eczema-friendly Christmas menu plus one of my favourite dessert recipes, Baked Pear Crumble, which uses The Eczema Diet ingredients.  Eczema Diet foods for your Christmas table: Roast Chicken or Turkey: Refer to The Eczema Diet for the Roast Chicken recipe, or simply roast chicken or turkey using low...

Why healthy foods can be unhealthy for eczema (Th2 explained)

This information is the opposite of what many bloggers recommend for eczema. And it's a common mistake practitioners have been making for years when treating eczema and other types of skin inflammation.  In fact, I made some of these mistakes when I first became a health practitioner many years ago, mainly because the research I am discussing is new. Like all scientists, I'm willing to be wrong in order to get to the truth. But often we get stuck 'defending our herbal prescriptions' rather than changing them when the new research demands it.  As I'm a nutritionist specialising in eczema, I receive hundreds of emails...
