I am 27 and have had eczema on my legs since I was 7. I have tried countless remedies without success. Kefir was my miracle solution! Taken internally, it didn't do anything for me. BUT, applied to my legs after showering in the morning and before going to bed at night did wonders very quickly. It is now completely gone! I told my mother about it since she had very itchy eczema in her ears and it did the same for her! Try it! I don't rince the kefir after applying it (organic and plain - I sometimes make it/buy it at the store). Once it dries, it doesn't show nor smell anything. I also started applying it on my face for acne and it is helping already :-) The good bacterias in kefir help rebalance the skin and fight bad bacterias.
I was nursing my daughter and still am since birth. She developed eczema around 1 month old. At first I had no idea where how this happened as my two other children had no problems. I took her to her pediatrician and she said that some babies just have it and it goes away as they get older. I asked if it could be because of something I was eating and her pediatrician (rated one of the best pediatrician in NYC) said "no, not at all."
Thank God for mothers intuition, I did some research of my own and found that my daughter was sensitive to the foods I was eating. I cut out foods one at a time to see what she was reacting to and found she was sensitive to milk, nuts and eggs? Something I constantly consumed in my diet. So I had to remove them from my diet but occasionally would incorporate them, except for the nuts.
After she turned 2 years, I attended a birthday party and ate cake that was made with nuts, which made her react not just on her hands as she would normally but now on her inner elbow area and it itched and was so red and uncomfortable for her, I had to wrap up her arms. I tried some ointments which helped but it wasn't until I began drinking Kefir and giving my daughter Kefir did it help give her relief. It literally worked within 12 hours. I'd give my daughter Kefir first thing in the morning and before she would go to sleep. (I would try to be consistent although sometimes she was resistant). It made her eczema disappear.
Eczema is a digestive issue and Kefir treats those issues. Western medicine along with most doctors are good at taking your money, and playing with human health in exchange for extra bucks. Kefir is the cure! Don't waste time, buy organic Kefir and save your children and yourself the trouble of spending your money on anything else!
Hello, I just wanted to share of my experience with milk kefir for my son's eczema. He has suffered with eczema since he was 3 months old. It was so severe that his pediatrician had to give him antiobiotics. I read about milk kefir (live cultures)and I purchased the grains and gave it to him everday when he was old enough to drink milk and within 1 month it completely resolved. We stopped giving him steroids and ointments and epson baths. This was truly a miracle for us. We praise God.
