8 Ways To Heal Ezcema

1. Bleach Baths

I have not tried it personally, but there are tons of people giving it a shot now and seeing stellar results. From what I can see they put a quarter cup of 5% bleach in a luke warm tub and soak for 10 minutes, without washing off after.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

This has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties to help heal eczema.

3. Honey

My eczema was super dry tonight, so I used some honey to heal it. I left it on for 10 minutes and gently washed off.

4. Olive Oil

This is a great moisturizer for extra dry skin, and some use it daily for extra moisturized skin.

5. Myrrh Oil

This is a great healer for both neuropathy and eczema.

6. Green Tea

In ancient Chinese medicine, green tea is like our ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ motto. A glass of tea a day helps, and should be sugar free.

7. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

This is a great moisturizing jelly protector that helps keep moisture in the skin.

Whole30 Meal Ideas

Hey all!  So excited to share some additional recipes with you that are Whole30 friendly today!

As a reminder, on the Whole30 diet, you CANNOT eat the following:

  • Dairy.  This means cheese, cow milk, cream, yogurt, half and half, butter.  Substitute these cravings with sugar free almond and coconut milk!
  • Grains.  No corn, wheat, rye, millet, buckwheat, rice, quinoa.  Substitute these cravings with potatoes, even yams, almond flour, coconut flour and more.
  • Alcohol.  No pops for you, you lush!
  • Legumes.  Lima beans, etc.  Replace with vegetables.
  • Added Sugar.  No sugar whatsoever, not even juice (only to cook with in moderation).
  • No junk food and anything with sulfites.

Some things I cooked over the last week or so include:

  • Eggs sunny side up, with Kale and Uncured Bacon

  • Italian Chicken – garlic, olives, onions, kale, chicken, tomato sauce (no sugar added), tomato past, basil, oregano, garlic, black pepper, Himalayan saltplated italian chicitalianchic
  • Chicken Leg Roast – organic chicken legs, organic brussel sprouts, potatoes, carrots, whole garlic, olive oil, himalayan salt, combine all at 425 degrees F for an hour.

Extra tips to be successful on this diet:

  1. Try to get a friend, boyfriend, husband, family member to do it with you!  If someone you are living commits with you it makes it twice as fun and twice a party once you complete your first round!
  2. Remove any food non-compliant, or any temptations.  Unfortunately my kids birthdays were close together and then Thanksgiving happened during my first round, but no worries, I didn’t cheat.  I just made sure all candy and sweets were not in my view, some I completely removed, to make sure I could not just grab it and eat it.  I hid these main sugar sweets in my cabinets so that when the kids wanted them I would give them close the cabinets, out of sight out of mind.
  3. Drink tea and coffee as your dessert.  This sounds odd, but really helped me succeed in a big way!  I used the sugar free coconut almond milk and it was really delicious and heavy almost like a hot chocolate.
  4. Be prepared always with food!  There are both Larabars and Rxbars that are compliant with the Whole30.  I would buy these and keep in your purse, car or pocket, just in case you get hungry.  Fruit and veggies are also nice to have along with a water bottle filled with ice, lime, lemon, orange, cranberries, etc. as a treat for yourself.
  5. I weighed myself.  This is supposed to be a no no, however I wanted to see immediate results which I did.  I lost about 10 pounds in the first few weeks, and if you are addicted to carbs, sugar and dairy, which I was, you will probably be as successful as I was.

In closing, I have never found a diet more successful than this one.  There is really no measuring, tracking points, etc. which gets old and boring fast.  No frozen tasteless meals and your taste buds begin to enjoy fruits, meat, veggies again.  After your first round, you can try another round, but some people opt to do the Paleo diet which I have not tried and plan on continuing through the New Year.

HAPPY EATING, and enjoy your Sunday!

Refreshing Drinks on the Whole30 Diet

seltzer

I was majorly addicted to sugar, dairy and carbs when I started the Whole30 program!  I would drink a ton of diet soda, regular soda, specialty fruit drinks like Izze’s from Whole Foods that were packed with fake sugar and real sugar.  This would give me a temporary pleasure but now I see, after 5 days, 8 pounds lost, that my insulin levels and weight gain were mainly due to the drinks I was drinking.  I didn’t really eat much but was just drinking the wrong things!

So grateful for the Whole30 diet, and wanted to share the allowed and permitted drinks to drink while changing your diet over the next 30 days.

  1. Black Coffee

black coffee

Guys, I am a HUGE coffee fan and surprisingly never drank coffee prior to having children.  Now that I have two twin boys that are 4 and working full time, my coffee is my saving grace!   I used to go to Starbucks and get the fancy pumpkin spiced coffee or the caramel macchiato coffee, and they were just packed with dairy and sugar.  No bueno for my overall weight and well being.  Although I was getting a temporary rush, my highs and lows during the day were super rough.  The black coffee without milk and sugar or heavy creamer really is a BIG change from what I was doing before.  Happy that I am still able to have caffeine in this manner as I love coffee!

2. Infused Water

water with orange

Sweetness here is the best!  It is naturally flavored with the orange and with a little ice and fresh water, this will hydrate me all day.  I just keep adding ice and water throughout the day as I drink each glass and it is stellar.  I would suggest either filling up a water bottle if you have one or even getting a straw in a paper cup to chug this down.

3. Green Tea

There are so many good benefits to green tea that have been explained in many different books and articles here on the web.  I would suggest that if you are in the mood for an energy boost and are not satisfied with a coffee, try green tea instead.  It has bioactive compounds that are good for the brain and body, increasing physical and mental performance as well.  It also has been known to help prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, diabetes, Parkinson’s, obesity AND overall extends your lifespan.  Especially now that I have children it is important to me to make sure that I take care of myself even better than before as I want to see them grow old too, graduate school, marry, grandchildren, etc.

4. Coconut water

Living in Los Angeles now, when me and my family go to the beach on the weekends and drive on the PCH, there is this truck that offers coconut water right from the coconut with a straw just like in this picture!  We try and stop there often, but if you do not have access to fresh coconuts at your local grocery then I would make sure you read the ingredients on the back of any coconut water bottle to make sure there is no added sugar as this would set you back all to day 1 of the Whole30 diet again.

5. Seltzer

seltzer la croix

OK so I haven’t tried LaCroix Seltzer yet myself, but my sister in DC loves this brand and swears by it!  Since no alcohol is allowed during the 30 days, this with ice is a great alternative to it!  There are many other brands that are compliant, along with Canada Dry and the no-name brand you may have in your supermarket.
