Your gut health is vitally linked to your skin health. Stomach acid (HCL) helps absorb minerals like zinc that are crucial for skin health and fights harmful microbes that can enter your system. You can increase your HCL production by consuming raw apple cider vinegar, bitter herbs, and fermented foods. Eat slowly and when relaxed, eat more proteins and non-starchy food, and don't drink more than 8 oz beverages with your meal.
Eczema is of rising concern in the United States with over 30 million affected. People are often treated with ointments, creams or drugs but none of these cater to the root cause; low immunity and weak digestion. Cater to the real cause and support your immune and digestive systems with rich foods and superfoods. Mostly anti-inflammation foods such as garlic and turmeric are good diet additions to start with.
