  • I've been able to finally control my eczema by first applying some apple cider vinegar (1p acv, 1p water) and then following it up with coconut oil. Works much better than the steroid cream I've used for years! Coconut oil alone didn't help much though…

  • Dr Greger please can you look into the medical literature for a plant based substance that I can safely inject into my penis and is clinically proven to reverse heart disease 😂😂😂

  • All the penis humor had me laughing out loud, but now I really would feel uncomfortable about sending a link to this video to a female friend/coworker who suffers from eczema. So it sort of limits the ability to raise the awareness levels of people other than your closest friends by forwarding this type of information to them. And that is sad.

  • I don't even understand what the point of talking about penises in this video is. Seems very gimmicky.
    I am also not a fan of petroleum jelly.
    As someone, who's now in my mid 30s and has suffered from severe eczema my whole life, I can tell you this: Eczema symptoms are HIGHLY influenced by what you put on and in your body. Change your diet to take away highly inflammatory food (I gave up gluten 14 years ago due to this) get rid of all of the body care products that are full of garbage ingredients that will irritate the skin.
    To make a long story short, I went from head to toe eczema, with large cracks going down the palms of my hands (where I couldn't even close my hands or bend my fingers) to now only having two affected fingers. My eczema these days is generally mild and manageable. I've made huge changes in my lifestyle, diet, products I use on my skin. I have been tested for all kinds of allergies and rare diseases like Porphyria (which I did not seem to show diagnostic markers of.) I've seen more dermatologists and allergists than I can count, who eventually ran out of treatment options for me. In the last few years I've had my genes tested and developed a vitamin/supplement plan with Functional Medicine Practitioner.
    All of the steroid creams, oral medications, injections, barrier creams and whatever else in the world will NOT balance out the symptoms you're having if you don't start treating the triggers that are causing the problems. You also pay a huge price in the side effects caused by these drugs. You will also build up a tolerance to them and need to use more and more over time.
    If I had been treating the triggers instead of the symptoms, I don't think I'd even be dealing with eczema that I have these days. Thirty some odd years of steroid creams have left the skin on my hands thin and highly sensitive. I now wear fingerless gloves when I leave the house and powder free vinyl (the only material that won't irritate my skin, since I'm sensitive to rubber accelerant chemicals) when doing anything around the house that involves getting my hands dirty.
    Good luck to everyone, eczema can be an emotionally draining, painful condition to deal with.

  • From my personal experience, eating spicy food (peppers), and also dry and hot weather make eczema worse, while eating just boiled Zucchinis with plain bread, not only heal eczema but a ton of other diseases including stomach.

  • vaseline is greasy. Coconut oil is anti microbial..
    I made a nice moisturizer starting by soaking flax seeds in water and seperating the gel. I then whipped the gel with coconut oil until it made a thick cream.
    It is pretty good to put on skin or hair or fruit.

  • here's a few suggestions worth trying
    eat more fruit and vegatables.
    Have more liquids
    eliminate smoking.
    cut down the amount of stress in your life.
    (I discovered these and why they work on Takiras Magic Method site )

    I had eczema on July 7, 2018, now every day, the health of the skin is improving. My mother has a history of allergic diseases (allergic rhinitis), I guess I may have genetic defects in this area, perhaps related to gene defects related to filaggrin. I have been vegetarian for 4 years. When I learned that I had eczema, I tried to explore the shortcomings I might have done. So I lowered my bath water temperature from 42 degrees Celsius to 39 degrees Celsius and took a bath as quickly as possible. Apply Vaseline (as the video says Vaseline for the treatment of eczema)I take a photo every week and observe the skin changes, so fast

    我2018年7月7日得的湿疹,现在每个礼拜皮肤的健康都在发生天翻地覆地改善。我妈有过敏疾病史(过敏性鼻炎),我猜我或许有此方面遗传缺陷,或许与聚丝蛋白相关的基因缺陷有关。 我已经素食了4年,当我得知我得了湿疹后,试图探索我可能做的不足之处,于是我调低了我的洗澡水温度从42摄氏度至39摄氏度,尽可能地快速洗澡,并涂上凡士林(正如此视频所说凡士林对于治疗湿疹的作用)我每周拍一张照片,观察皮肤变化,是如此的神速
