Product Description

Rid yourself of eczema forever! Based on new research, this book has everything the millions of eczema sufferers need to know to free themselves from unbearable itching and unsightly rashes.

Eczema–Free For Life contains the latest medical information about the cause, symptoms, and treatments of eczema and is written both for adults with eczema and the parents of children with eczema. In addition to the most recent medical research, Dr. Nasir offers guidance for home care and ways to cope with the psychological impact of the disorder. None of the popular books about eczema currently on the market is written by a practicing dermatologist and none is based on up–to–date science. New research has conclusively demonstrated that eczema is the result of the abnormal development of some twenty genes responsible for controlling how the skin interacts with the environment. When the skin's barrier function fails, irritants pass through to underlying tissue and trigger the itchy rash that characterizes eczema. Dr. Nasir will explain new and more powerful treatments that are being developed based on these new discoveries as well as point out reliable holistic remedies that have worked for centuries.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book helped me. Read how.
I knew that moving to a sunny seaside resort for good was the Top1 solution to take control over my eczema. (At the moment, I live in a very industrial area in Germany.) Still, I took my time and read Eczema-Free For Life very carefully. Basically, the purpose of this review is to praise the book.

I have been struggling with eczema since childhood, and none of my doctors helped me to get better informed about my health condition, unfortunately. I do not blame them for that. They tried to help me with their pieces of advice. But reading this book was better than 100 visits to the dermatologists, who never had time to explain what is wrong-or different-about my skin.

1. Thanks to this book I understood the differences between an allergy and eczema. These should not be confused.

2. The book combats the old common myth according to which eczema is a result of some kind of emotional problem. The faulty genes are responsible for my skin disorder and not "ill weak soul" or something like that (I have friends who still think my disorder is a spiritual weakness). But this chronic skin disorder might effect psychological health of the patient, I would agree with that.

3. The book explained what itching is and how to better deal with this very uncomfortable-at times, disturbing!!- symptom.

4. Most importantly, the book describes the treatments of eczema in terms of what they are and what contemporary (American) scientists know about their efficacy. The authors accept the fact that some treatments work well but there is no reliable scientific research explaining why these treatments work. I had no impression the authors treated the "unscientific" methods with scepticism. As for the topical steroids, they write: "Topical steroids are probably the most commonly prescribed and effective medication for eczema currently available. They treat the symptoms very successfully but don't offer a permanent cure." They WARN about the side effects.

5. The book, basically, disillusions, but for the patient's good: there are no fast MIRACLE cures. Taking control over this disorder takes a big effort, and there is no guarantee your eczema will be cured.

If you are diagnosed with eczema, this book might be very-very helpful. Improving the bathing habits alone helped me to improve my condition. And I learned how to properly do that from this book. Besides, the book has tips on what clothes to wear, what cosmetic products to avoid, how an ideal eczema-free home would look like, etc.

You should make sure your parents or peers understand your condition, so ask them to read this book as well. The book also helped me to understand how my loved ones, especially, my parents feel when I have severe inflamation. They have tough times seing me suffering. This book helped me to realize how egoistic and negative I was thinking my loved ones did not make an effort to understand how I feel and still try to "act normal".

This book had a very positive anaesthetic effect on me. I highly recommend it as a good basic book on the treatment of eczema.

P.S.: I am 24 year old female from Kyrgyzstan currently studying in Germany.

3-0 out of 5 stars Eczema- Free For Life- NOT!
This book is informative, but the title is not accurate.Inside this book the authors explain how an eczema sufferer can try to minimize eczema flare ups, which is important, yet they do not have the information to make someone free of eczema for life.

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT? Eczema has nothing to do with what you eat?!!!!!
Although I didn't read this book, I just read Mama.x's review above where she said that the author believes that eczema has nothing to do with diet. Hasn't the author ever heard of Celiacs disease or food allergy? Based on that alone I would urge people NOT TO BUY THIS BOOK because the individual has no clue what they're talking about. I suffered from mild to severe eczema off and on for most of my life. Just recent I discovered that by cutting out wheat and any foods with gluten my eczema has been under control. Every now and then I have a flair up if I eat something not realizing that it contains gluten and it takes a few weeks to get back to normal. I would encourage anybody who has struggled with this to have their doctor look into Celiacs or food allergy. Prednisone helped to mask the symptoms while I cleanse my system of gluten.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book on Eczeme
While this was a good book and it did provide some informative information on Eczema. I feel the author spent more time describing the history and "technicalities" behind eczema rather than how to "Live Eczema Free" as the title states. (Which is mis-leading btw). Alot of the information I already knew but some things I didnt which were helpful

2-0 out of 5 stars be cautious when buying this book
I've had eczema since I was born. At times in my life it has become severe and others it has been calmer, but reguardless always there.There really is no "eczema free", so I wish the title was not so misleading.Anyone who has had eczema for many years knows that it is and will always be a problem for them.Worring about what fabrics your wearing, making sure that everything you use is fragrance free for sensitive skin, not being able to truly ever enjoy a shower or bath or swimming, yes and worring about what you eat and drink for me its no acids or wheat, and spending thousands of dollars on dermatologists and creams and lotions and the list goes on and on...
I dont believe that most of the medicines a dematogist gives you work. I've tried many oral steroids (which leads to weight gain and a quick fix that doesnt last long), steroid and cortizone creams(which are costly and after years of using no longer work and simply leave scars),Even the all natural creams have not worked for me.Recently I even resorted to try a medicine that significantly lower your immune system.Horrible mistake! Sure my skin got better for a little while but I had a vast of other problems that occured shortly following this medicine and eventually my skin of course worsened.I started having terrible bladder problems, lumps in my [...] that had to be removed, fatigue, staff infections that turned into mrsa, all of which I accredit to the lower immune system from the medication.
So to all of you suffering from eczema or dermititis please be aware that there is no ecezma free for life as this book states, as great as that may sound. Please just be aware of that if purchasing this book.Although could be somewhat helpful if new to eczema stress makes eczema worse, and soap does irritate the skin. It is impossible to stop scratching so please understand that if you are around someone with eczema do not nag them about scratching it makes them scratch more, trust me! Please be careful when going to a dermatologist you may waste money on a quick fix that wont last, which seems like what this book offers.Try changing your diet ultimately if you have eczema you also have many allergies try not eating wheat and watching how much acid you consume. If someone has a cure let me know but this book is not it. ... Read more

Product Description
It’s a short, simple, drastically different diet—not necessarily easy, but simple and effective. The goal of this guide is to help people with eczema or almost any kind of skin disorder heal themselves without ongoing dependence on drugs, creams, lotions, or other medicine by relating what worked for this author personally to cure her eczema, dermatitis and acne. There’s a lot of information out there, especially on the internet, but much of it can seem vague or conflicting regarding the combination of symptoms you may have. Waterford did a lot of informal research and trial and error over a long period of time and eventually cured her eczema, general health, and most of her allergies with a natural diet. If you’ve had no luck with doctors, allergy drugs, cortisone cream, or other eczema treatments, this particular combination of treatments that she stumbled upon may also help you. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars One piece of the puzzle
This book focuses on the fungus aspect of eczema. Most natural health care practitioners will tell you that fungus is always present with eczema. Even the pediatrician we saw told us that fungus was always a problem when eczema was present. So she has a piece of the puzzle, the problem is it is only one piece to a sometimes extremely complex problem. It's like saying that people with eczema have a zinc deficiency. Well of course they do, their skin is blowing through zinc with every break out, but that doesn't necessarily mean a zinc deficiency is the cause, it can sometimes be a symptom.

She was able to greatly reduce her eczema with a strict yeast diet. I agree that a very strict yeast free diet can reduce the symptoms, but that is a very difficult way to live, because every time you cheat, you're back at square one.

She explains that she had to resort to topical steroids to finally get rid of the rash. I completely disagree with the use of topical steroids. This simply suppresses the illness, which will often then manifest in a deeper condition, the most frequent which is asthma.

Dr. Bernard Jensen in his classic work Chemistry of Man (Man Series, Second Edition) had numerous cases of eczema clear up simply by switching from cow's milk to goat's milk. I've personally seen a case of childhood eczema that was so severe the child had difficulty walking, completely clear up simply by discontinuing cow's milk. So I would start there.

We eventually found our cure through homeopathy. While we consulted with a professional homeopath, she just wasn't able to see the case clearly enough. Homeopathy is different than traditional medicine because they don't always use the same remedy for the same condition. It is highly personalized, and you have to find the exact match to your symptoms, overall health, and personality.

I eventually ended up enrolling in Homeopathic school myself, and through a series of events was led to the book "The Homeopathic Treatment of Eczema" by Robin Logan. It is in print, but for some reason is not currently available on Amazon. In it he lists 42 different possible remedies for eczema; the trick is to find the best match for your case. I had to read the book in its entirety two times before I figured out which was the best remedy for my son. For us the guiding symptoms were that it was significantly worse on the right side, he's aggressive, bites, kicks, pulls hair, and has red streaks after scratching. It sounds odd I know. But it pointed me to the right remedy.

So she has a part of the problem that can help you minimize outbreaks until you find the correct remedy. It just wasn't the complete answer for us.

4-0 out of 5 stars she found her own answers
I found this book very helpful. For quite some time, I've been having facial skin problems like burning hives and whatever dermatitis name my HMO type doctors want to give it. Somewhere in the midst of suffering and getting no solutions other that cortisone creams and anti-histamines from dcotors, I decided to go find my own answers in diet. I quit alcohol. Then sugar. Then cheap carbs, food additives, etc. For the last 6 months I've been on a retraictive diet that also focused on elminating candida. My skin condition has not only improved, but I'm well--healed. Like the author, I searched for and found my own answers. Read the book to discover how the author improved her life long ailments. You too can heal yourself through diet.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Insightful
This book was very informative.I had similar experiences described in the book concerning eczema.Now I have a different way to approach the skin disorder.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wanted more!
I have suffered from eczema all my life. I have always felt like I was alone with my skin problems. I liked the parts where she described the pain she went through as I too have felt the very same way and it helped me feel like there was someone who understood. My only gripe is first it could have used some editing and second, I wish she had written a much longer book to tell more of her life with skin problems as I could relate. All in all it is a good little book.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works -- like Atkins/South Beach PLUS
I have to say this does work: I always wondered why my little spots of rash on the insides of my elbows and sometimes wrists would go away when I was on a diet!I tried this with the grapefruit seed extract (which I like about this diet, as it was all natural -- not pushing any product like some of the reviews, and other books) and it really cleared up the hives.Now when I eat something really carb-y or sugary, I know why it comes back!But not as bad as before, and at least now I now what causes it and what to do.Thank you!!! ...

I am reading the book now and working on trying their solution. My skin doctor doesnt believe in any of these gimmicks, so I hope to prove him wrong. I know others with this disease who are skepticle as well, so I will be the guinea pig and follow it religiously.

I have to say, this book is
quite hard to follow.But
once you do, you'll thank

I've suffered chronic eczema for
over 25 years.I've learned a lot.
And one thing is for certain:

Changing or controlling behavior
is never easy, and to adopt this
methodology in your life will be
a challenge.

However, take it a step at a time.

If you fall off the program, get
back on.Don't let eczema control
your life.

I'm from the philosophical camp
that a mixture of both behavioral
therapy (which this is) and medicative
therapy (such as cortisone), along
with a healthy diet is the way to
tackle this tortuous disease.

Don't let the "alternative" healing
camp to dissuade you from using
medicine.That's a bunch of bull.

use of medicines like cortisone with

Product Description

Atopic eczema (eczema, atopic dermatitis, diffuse neurodermatitis, endogenous eczema) is one of the most common skin diseases of our time—not only in childhood. The prevalence of this disease has increased dramatically over the past decades, although the reasons for this increase are not known. Eczema occurs anywhere in the world, not only in industrialized countries. It occurs at any age, not only in childhood, and approximately two-thirds of children affected will suffer from this disease when they are grown up.

Written by leading experts in their field, this second edition of the excellent handbook of atopic eczema comprises the state of the art in pathophysiology, clinical medicine, and therapeutic management. It demonstrates that there is no simple "miracle" cream, pill, or diet for this disease, but that a disturbed barrier function can only be repaired by adequate and individualized skin care. It also shows how unspecific anti-inflammatory treatment has to be individually tailored according to body area affected, patient age, and severity of skin lesions. All physicians treating patients with atopic eczema will find this book most helpful in their painstaking search for the individual causal or eliciting factors, which is the only basis for rational treatment and prevention of this disease.

Written from a psychological perspective, Linda Papadopoulos and Carl Walker show that, although seldom life-threatening, skin diseases can be very distressing for both sufferers and their families. As a source of information or just as general interest, this handy guide will help you to understand the importance of the mind-body connection, and how it can help in dermatology. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo!
A stunning text that delivers the scientific insight expected from a Dr Walker publication. The revelation here though, and in essence what separates this book from others, is the development of the scientist (and one time 'enfant terrible' of Psychology!) as a story teller. One hesitates to use the word genius - a term all too frequently applied in these celebrity obsessed times - but history will certainly look upon this title very favourably.

If you only read one dermatology self help book this year, then make sure that it's this one!

I read this book within a matter of days, it's perfect for the beach or if your pennies don't stretch that far then you should read it with a box of chocolates and a glass of wine within easy reach. You will not be able to think about anything else until you have finished it, and even then thoughts will keep popping into your head.

About the best book Dr Walker has ever written. This will always be his classic masterpiece, his epitaph even.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not that good
The author has a chapter called "What is the best treatment for eczema", you would think you will learn some very good tips to deal with it (or that is at least what I was expecting), but you don't ,she refers to the different general treatments, but doesn't tell you exactly what you could use, i.e. other books that I have read, tell you specifically to look for lotions that have colloidal oatmeal, this chapter is too general. I was expecting to find more specific advise.

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless
Perhaps this book was written for someone who never read anything about eczema. However, for any parent who conducted even minimum research this book will tell nothing new. Great cover design, promising title, waste of money.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book
This is an excellent resouce for parents of children with eczema. It not only talks about how eczema develops and the most common allergens, but also covers eczema management very extensively: e.g. itch and sleep management, day-to-day routine, and how to prepare the child for social pressure when they start going to school, etc.

4-0 out of 5 stars Understanding childhood eczema
Ernest Henri Besnier (1831-1909), French dermatologist, gave the name to the condition Prurigo Besnier or atopic dermatitis. Besnier became médecin des hôpitaux in 1863 and subsequently held positions at several Paris hospitals. In 1873 he succeeded Bazin as dermatologist at the Hôpital St. Louis, where he became director the same year. In 1881 he was elected member of the Academy of Medicine as hygienist due to his contributions to epidemiology. In his special field, dermatology, Besnier tried to balance the differences between the French school and the Vienna school. With Pierre Adolphe Adrien Doyon (1827-1907) he founded the journal Annales de dermatologie et de syphiligraphie. He built histopathology and parasitology laboratories at the St. Louis hospital, and we owe to him the term and technique of biopsy. He is not mentioned in this book.
Atopic dermatitis (atopic means alien, dermatitis means inflamed skin) or atopic eczema (eczema is Greek for to boil out) shows an inherited tendency to develop one or more of different types of conditions, like asthma, eczema of atopic type, allergic rhinitis or acute urticaria of allergic type. It is a major problem with more than 10% of the population suffering. Many children and their families will suffer and the condition create distress. Atopic dermatitis primarily is caused by cellular immune deficiency and elevated immunoglobulin E (IgE). The pathogenesis can be traced to a genetically inherited, bone marrow-derived cell associated with chromosome 11q. Abnormal skin reactivity also plays a major role in the development of the disease. Irritants to the skin are believed to predispose an individual to develop dermatitis more often than simply exposure to an allergenic trigger. Nonetheless, patients frequently have a history of food or inhalant allergies or eventually develop them. Children most commonly are affected with 80% developing the disease before age 7 years. Less than 2% will have an onset after age 20 years. Most sources agree that persistence after age 20 years is uncommon. Only an estimated 10% of patients older than 20 years continue to be symptomatic.
Wiley publisher has started a new book series on "Understanding illness and health" with this book on "Childhhod eczema" by Penny Titman. She is a clinical psychologist from University College in London, but now working in a community team for children and families in an NHS Trust.
This book has eight chapters with information on the medical aspects of this condition, treatment aspects including alternative treatment methods and full of case stories and practical advice for families that includes useful addresses and contacts. We lacked a few pictures, but understand that this would have made the book more expensive. We found that this book couldbe very helpful for parents with an atopic child.

Product Description
Millions of Americans who suffer from eczema (dermatitis), acne, psoriasis, candidiasis, and other common skin disorders will find helpful new advice in this informative book. Freedom From Eczema is the first to provide a single comprehensive source of diagnostic and treatment options from conventional (Western) and complementary (alternative) medicine, including the popular approach known as Nambudripad s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET®). While many conventional and complementary approaches effectively address the symptoms of skin disorders, the NAET® approach addresses the underlying cause of the problem, while encouraging patients to continue care under their regular treating physician until symptoms are resolved. The author, a world-renowned clinician and speaker with 24 years of experience and success with tens of thousands of patients, shows that this integrative approach gives patients both quick and lasting freedom from their skin disorders.

Chapters 1 and 2 describe symptoms and causes of common skin disorders, offering evidence of the underlying problem through dramatic before and after photographs of patients who resolved their condition through NAET® treatments. Chapter 3 includes an overview of Western and Oriental medicine diagnostic approaches, including fascinating lists of symptoms of acupuncture/energy meridian disturbance, as well as a thorough description and illustration of the NAET® diagnostic approach. Chapter 4 summarizes conventional, complementary, and NAET® treatment options, and includes self-help acupressure point diagrams for common skin disorders (to accelerate symptomatic relief). Chapter 5 culminates the NAET® success story with over 35 patient testimonials on how NAET® completely resolved their eczema, acne, psoriasis, candidiasis, and other related symptoms.
NAET® is a revolutionary approach that integrates theories from psychoneuroimmunology, energy medicine, chiropractic, and nutritional medicine. Charles G. Gableman, M.D., Diplomate of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology, notes that It exceeds, by far, any other presently existing treatments for allergies. It is speedy, specific and immediately productive. Freedom From Eczema is sure to give readers encouraging new answers from this frontier in healthcare. ... Read more

Product Description
The lives of thousands of children and their families are affected by eczema, a skin disorder which can vary from from a small, mildly irritating patch of skin to a much more widespread, painful, and unsightly rash. While conventional treatments have given relief to many children, others continue to suffer the physical and emotional pain associated with severe eczema.

In this well-illustrated book aimed at both parents and affected children, Dr Atherton explains the latest in what is known about the causes, the treatments available, and the effects on the child and family's life. He also gives practical advice on where to go for help and support. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good resource to have on hand
This 250 page book is a valuable resource for any parent contending with infant eczema.I found the color pictures particularly helpful.Without it, I'm not sure that I would have had the courage to insist that our child be seen by a pediatric dermatologist.It turns out that he not only had eczema, but a common secondary infection that looked much like the photos in the book.

David Atherton writes this book not as a sure-fire method to eliminate the source of eczema, but as a tool for trying different tactics to alleviate the symptoms.He also takes the reader through the different stages that appear at different ages.There were several tips that I gathered from the reading, making the book well worth the $... to purchase.

3-0 out of 5 stars Eczema in Childhood: The Facts
David Atherton goes into great depth to help the reader understand some possible reasons for the eczema. He gives a very comprehensive explanation of how the body reacts to undigested proteins.I found that part to bevery valuable.

However, I was very disappointed that he did notmentionhis opinion on nutritional supplements such as zinc, flax seed oil (Omega 3vs Omega 6), vitamin B12 or B6, etc.He never mentioned digestive enzymesor his opinion on whether they may assist in breaking down the proteins. He never mentioned if an overgrowth of Candida Albicans in the intestinesmight be a cause of eczema.He never mentioned acidophilus as a supplementto help balance the flora in the intestines.

I felt that his conclusionwas that children will eventually outgrow eczema and therefore, shouldconsider using a very aggressive course of oral steroids.I hope heunderstands that the reason I am reading about eczema is because after 10years of American Medicine treating only the symptom, I am looking forassistance in finding the cause.I do not want my child to suffer anyrepercussions later in life due to a mistake I make now.I tried ChineseMedicine, but, I guess she was one of the 40% which did not benefit fromit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what the doctor ordered...
There can be no other ailment as frustrating as eczema: any parent who has stood hopelessly by and watched their child scratch will testify to this. This book is a MUST read for any parent in that position. It covers EVERYquestion you ever had about the condition and more.

5-0 out of 5 stars "THE"Book on Childhood Eczema - HANDS DOWN!

Product Description
Dealing With Eczema the Natural Way!

Do You Suffer From the Itching, Redness and Scaling of Chronic Eczema? If so you are not ALONE! It strikes men and women young and old! It is not just "diaper rash" or a disease that babies get!

Adult numbers who have a persistent eczema problem in the USA is usually estimated to be something around 5.5% of the adult population. That works out to be about fifteen million people in the United States alone. Although the condition is not fatal there is no cure. All you can do is prevent it, treat it and manage its symptoms!

It's Time to Stop Scratching and Start Healing!

The purpose of this ebook is to examine what eczema is and what causes it in greater detail, before looking at the various different ways of treating the condition so that you can decide what the best treatment plan is for you.

As it turns out there are some very definite triggers for painful outbreaks including-

* Skin abrasions from shaving

* "Trigger Foods" that you may be allergic to such as wheat based and dairy products, fish and seafood, acidic fruits, eggs, nuts and food additives

* Wool clothing

* A preexisting asthmatic condition

* Scratching

* Dust mites

* Exposure to animal hair

* Rug burns

* Small cuts

* Cold weather

* Damp or humid weather

* Sunburn

* Taking aspirin

* Emotional stress including being too sad or too happy - extremes of emotion whether good or bad can cause stress in the body that can cause an outbreak

* How some people have outbreaks with no apparent trigger!

* How to avoid the situations and behaviors that can trigger these outbreaks

Should you go the natural route or opt for the usual messy creams, sloppy salves and medical treatments?

Product Description
This early works on 'The modern treatment of Eczema' contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Preface: In the following pages I have briefly pointed out the chief clinical varieties of Eczema; have sought to exhibit their etiology, so far as I understand it; have indicated the principal remedies found useful in the treatment of the disease; and have detailed the best manner of applying them, so far as known to me. That was has been written may prove useful to others..... Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally an answer........ :)
Drs Holick and Rendon provide a must read for anyone with this aliment. Dr Rendon's plethora of knowledge on this subject is refreshing.

1-0 out of 5 stars The Psoriasis and Eczema Solution Is A Waste of Your Money
IN MY OPINION:As the mother of a child who suffers greatly from eczema, and who has read a ton on the subject, this book is not worth the paper it is written on.It throws out a few facts and figures about p and e, but probably not more than an actual sufferer would already know.In myopinion, the primary objective of this book was to promote a product calledEXOREX, which I also believe (in my opinion) is not worth the cost of thecontainer it is sold in.

Exorex is explained in the book to contain theessential fatty acids originally derived from bannana and the activeingredient 1% coal tar, and supposedly has a better skin penetratingformula and smell than regular coal tar.

Coal tar alone has been used foryears for the treatment of these conditions, and some would question thesafety of this type of use.I would question the safety of coal tar beingmore deeply absorbed by the body in this supposed new formulation.Also,1% coal tar can be obtained in its own form a heck of a lot cheaper, andwithout the expense of buying this book that plays on the desperation ofthe poor folk who suffer from these conditions.

Finally, eczema andpsoraisis, while both affecting the skin, are two completely separate anddistinct conditions, and don't really seem to me to need to be discussed inone book.

For eczema, I would recommend a book by Dr. Atherton called,Eczema in Childhood - The Facts...good for children and adults alike. ... Read more
