Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes the skin itchy and red. The skin barrier in people with eczema is abnormal and water escapes too easily which leads to the skin condition. Eczema is something that a person has from childhood but it can happen at any age. This skin issue is chronic meaning it’s long lasting and it flares up periodically. There has yet to be a cure found but there are various treatments that ease the irritation, lessens flare ups, and help keep the skin more hydrated.
Bumps – Fissures – Peeling – Redness – Rashes – Dry Patches – Flakiness – Itching
Triggers and stressors can cause changes in the intestinal bacteria, as well as, disrupting and causing damage to the intestinal barrier. These changes can be tied to many digestive and gastrointestinal diseases such as:
- Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Irritable Bowel Disorder IBD
- Celiac Disease
- Food Intolerance
Our gut health can affect and influence our entire body and system. When it’s good it’s good but when it’s bad it can cause or irritate non-gastrointestinal diseases or health issues such as: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and atopic dermatitis. A leaky gut leads to inflammation and when there are pre-existing health issues it seems that they’re affected first causing more irritation to an already irritated situation before wreaking havoc elsewhere.
Skin rashes and irritation is one of leaky guts infamous symptoms. To a person without a pre-existing skin condition this might not be a symptom that affects them and if it does it’s not that big of a deal, maybe just a case of dry skin. But, to a person with something like eczema this symptom is more likely to impact you in more of a negative way. They will have more frequent flare ups and reactions, lengthened bouts of the flareup, drier skin, and excessive or extreme itchiness.
One of the ways to get some relief is to use a natural leaky gut treatment and take care of that gut. At the same time be sure you are treating the eczema properly, try to avoid pharmaceutical steroid pills because they are one of the things that causes damage to the intestinal wall lining. Leaky gut antibiotics will kill off any bacteria causing a problem, leaky gut supplements can help repair the damage done and strengthen the gut too, and probiotics will help replace any of the lost beneficial bacteria. Healing your gut can help heal your entire body so make sure you get your gut checked out if it’s acting some kind of funky. A healthy gut is a happy gut and a happy gut is a happy you!
