The gut can play an important role in determining the severity of eczema. Foods in the diet can cause the immune system to trigger a release of histamine in the digestive tract if the body is intolerant or allergic to the food. In addition, bad gut flora also contribute to an unhealthy gut and a poor immune system, both of which make the problem worse. When the affected area is scratched, further histamine is released, causing more inflammation, and this cycle continues. In addition, a leaky gut can cause a hyperactive immune response which could aggravate the eczema.
To tackle eczema topically, SKIN Suspension is used. It penetrates the skin and works beneath the outer layer, absorbing and Eczema eliminating histamine. This reduces the inflammation and helps to break out of the cycle of scratching and inflaming the eczema.
In order to tackle eczema internally (i.e. targeting a leaky gut), ACUTE Capsules are used to bind and eliminate excess histamine from the digestive tract. This prevents histamine from being absorbed by the body where histamine can circulate and trigger a reaction to eczema on skin. Toxaprevent also promotes good gut flora, as toxins created by bad gut flora to spread are bound and eliminated, creating an unfavourable environment for them to survive in. The ACUTE Capsules also contain colostrum to help rebalance the immune response.
