Today I have a very special story to share with you. One of my readers, Kathy, had reached out to me back in February because she had suffered from bad eczema for many years. She had bought my ebooks to help her skin, and I didn’t hear back from her for a while. But one day, she emailed me back and told me that her skin had miraculously been healing and that her itching had gone away!
Here’s her testimony and I hope it brings you great encouragement today 🙂
Kathy’s Eczema Success Story
“For YEARS I have suffered with eczema. I have tried every cream, every dose of prednisone, special lotions, bleach baths, special soaps, hypo-allergenic detergents. I have been to approximately eight different dermatologists and allergists, and have had many tests done. I have tried light therapy, special compounds, etc. I have had my share of sheets and clothes that were blood stained from all the scratching and itching.
But now…….an amazing change…..I hit an all-time low February 2015, when the eczema appeared in places that it had never been before: my feet, hands and face!
It was horrible………the itching and burning was so intense and certainly began to take an emotional toll. I finally decided that I had to try something different, as nothing was working.
I came across this magical girl named Abby, to whom I am so grateful for her guidance, support and information.
I immediately started an elimination diet…….I eliminated every possible trigger food all at once. And yes, I felt lousy the first few days. I bought books on “eating clean” and began to shop and prepare meals differently than I had ever done before. I started taking probiotics and a few other supplements.
Slowly, I began to heal….and all simply by changing what I ate. No more steroids, no more prednisone, no more bleach baths, etc.
What boggles me is that over the years, NO doctor ever suggested I try an elimination diet.
Abby, to you I say THANK YOU! This has been life changing! I pray that all the other people who suffer with eczema are lucky enough to learn what you have taught me, so that they can heal, too!”
