A lot of eczema suffers experience leaky gut syndrome, that's why it is imperative to take care of your digestive tract. The first steps in healing your eczema begins with healing your gut.

Allergies and food reactions follow -- along with eczema. Unfortunately, this continuous cycle hinders the immune system.

One of the best ways to mend the gut and reduce permeability is to adopt a diet with plenty of vegetables, high in fibre and plenty of fresh greens. Get rid of or limit processed foods, dairy, meat, unsprouted grains and sugar.
