I've had chronic eczema come and go all my life. No rhyme or reason. I tried western medicine, chinese, homeopathic, creams, remedies, you name it I've tried it. I'm a believer that eczema is the body's way of telling us we're toxic and I also know that often ailments get worse before they get better. At least I know this to be true in theory.
Whenever I've tried western medicine it clears up but eventually re-occurs. I think this is because I'm pushing the toxicity back into my body. I started to get a bad breakout last month. I forgot that my grandma says she takes ACV every morning and she is 92 and fit as a fiddle. In desperation, I started taking it. Most of the advice on this website says 2tbsp once or twice a day in water. I've been doing it for 3 days and my eczema has spread significantly and I haven't had it this bad in years and years. In fact, in the past it would breakout in one or two areas but now it seems it's flaring in all of those previously flared areas.
I'm a little scared but I'm wondering if this is just a major detox. I couldn't possibly be having an allergic reaction. I don't mind drinking the ACV now. It doesn't disgust me in the least but is it possible to have too much? If this is in fact a hard core detox and it works, than I will perservere through the pain.
