Eczema can be a life-long condition that seriously impacts quality of life. In Australia, we have one of the highest incidences of Eczema in the world. Australian nutritionist, Karen Fischer, knows this better than most, with the condition affecting her young daughter so badly, she set out to find a way to give her some relief. 10 years on, after much research and successfully treating hundreds of eczema sufferers, Karen is a leading expert in the field. Her previous book, The Eczema Diet, is the bestselling Eczema book on Amazon. Now her new book, The Eczema Detox, offers the very latest information on treating a wide range of skin conditions. It includes skin-friendly recipes to tempt fussy eaters of all ages.
More than 90 percent of eczema sufferers are sensitive to a range of artificial chemicals but did you know natural food chemicals also trigger eczema? This is why regular detoxes and healthy eating programs, which are rich in phytochemicals, can cause red, flaky skin that is incredibly itchy.
The Eczema Detox shows you how to cut your total chemical load, love your liver and create healthy, clear skin from the inside out. The book contains three effective programs to suit a range of individuals from babies to adults with mild to severe skin rashes, including the following: eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, hives (urticaria), red skin syndrome, topical steroid withdrawal, hidradenitis suppurativa, seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, and more. Based on a decade of intense research and first-hand experience working with hundreds of skin disorder patients.
f you have tried everything and you still have skin rashes, The Eczema Detox is the answer you've been wishing for.
