Leaky Gut & Eczema – The Conclusion

Posted by the dood on Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Results after 2 months:
Well turns out that my Eczema was either not caused by Leaky Gut, or the suggested supplements to relieve my eczema as mentioned in this article and this article did not work.

That is not to say that I did not feel an improvement in my well-being. I noticed significantly less bloating after meals, and increased energy. Additionally I also lost a couple pounds. This may be related to the fact that I was on a Gluten-Free diet during the second half. However, in all of this I have found a way to reduce my eczema!

How did I solve my Eczema?
I used Lignisul Brand MSM from Alive Health Centres. I have back problems, so typically i take 2000mg of MSM per day (when I remember) along with Glucosamine. Well, I decided to up the amount of MSM to 6000mgs because I had been reading that for maximum benefit, 6000-8000mg per day is necessary. At first I did not realize it, but then after a week or so my eczema started going away! I didn’t think much of it as it was totally not related to my back pain.

After this experience, I spoke to a lady at the health food store and she had prescribed MSM to Eczema sufferers before with good results. I truly think this is a wonderful product, and now I religiously take it. It is recommended that you slowly load up to 6000mgs per day, rather than starting with 6000 right off the bat. Your body sometimes reacts to the large increase with what feels like withdrawal symptoms apparently.

Anyway, MSM for Eczema. Its good stuff. I’m not the only one that it’s worked for!

  1. Eczema can be managed by using corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and an antihistamine to reduce itching. it is also wise to avoid dairy products and nuts if you have food allergy.

  2. i suffer from Eczema and what i do is just take as much vitamins A, C and E supplements plus some topical corticosteroid to remedy the itch.

  3. Eczema is really so itchy and i cant help but scratch it. Corticosteroid is a heaven sent because it can relieve the itchiness and redness. “
