Eating a diet consisting of apples for a few days can help with eczema itching and outbreaks, according to Earth Clinic readers. This natural remedy seems to detox and strengthen the immune system. Unfortunately, eczema does come back as soon as you stop the apple fast.
Ana Lucia from Mexico writes Earth Clinic:
Apple fasting for eczema: It worked wonders for the three days I followed the instructions provided by someone else that posted way before me. I was so amazed that I did not need any additional encouragement to keep doing it. However, on the fourth day everything started to go back to “normal”, meaning, itchiness, blisters, rash, aching came back. I guess that it only works because you are detoxing yourself; but the moment you go back to your regular eating habits you throw everything to waste. I am currently trying to see if there is any food allergy that might be triggering it as I have already tried two dermatologists, a homeopatic doctor, the apple fast and coconut oil (both rubbed and eaten) and nothing has worked for me yet. I need an urgent cure as I am mother of a 4yo and of a 15mo and you can imagine how painful it is even to hold them!!!
