I have listened to hundreds of mothers over the last 9 years in regards to their childrens eczema.

it is either milk or gluten. Almost always the dairy but might be a combination. Remove them completely and the eczema will go away.

I was covered in it as a kid at 9. My parents took me to a naturopath (thank God) and then a homeopath... Who 'cured it'... However it would flare up once in awhile as an adult. Until I read about the connection between parasites and eczema (as well as the dairy and wheat). I have been completely free for 12 years but I am dairy, wheat, yeast, corn and gluten free 99% of the time ;-) and all my other ailments including low back pain, chronic migrains, shoulder pain abdominal pain, leg cramps, moodiness, anger, brain fog - is ALL GONE ;-) I see the same symtpoms in my kids. If I did not feed them a healthy diet free of dairy and wheat and do regular parasite cleanses... I am sure they would have eczema! It is not tht hard - there is so much available now for allergy free living and you know, we just go back to the 'basics' of eating like grandma would have... Brown rice, meat, potatoes, veggies, salads, whole cereals like millet, quinoa, oats, buckwheat, fruits, smoothies, almond milk and other nut milks, veggie juices, nothing from a can, leftovers, etc. It is much cheaper in the long run and crockpots are awesome for those with time issues ;-)

I nanny for infant twins who had terrible cradle cap. We began using a cotton ball to apply undiluted organic apple cider vinegar to their heads twice on bath day only, which is twice a week for them. To my knowledge, this was just to control the smell. Within a week or so, the cradle cap had drastically improved and after 2 weeks, was completely gone. We continue the application to ensure that it doesn't come back. I'm a believer and now am looking into remedies for myself!

ACV for sore throat in a 3 year old

my 3 year old (who has a cold) woke up in the middle of the night complaining of a sore throat, i immediately gave her apple cider vinegar w/ a little bit of raw honey and a couple pinches of turmeric. i gave her 3-4 teaspoons of this concoction and she said it went away and went back to sleep. when she woke this morning she said her sore throat was still gone!
