I have had eczema for over 15 years. I was forced to resort to prescription cortisone salves to keep the flare ups under control.
As a result of being diagnosed with osteoporosis and refusing to take prescription medications to treat it, I discovered (as a reader of Dr. Joseph Mercola's daily emails) that Japanese Natto (fermented soybeans) contains vitamin K2 which is helpful in protecting bones.
I began eating a spoonful of Natto daily. It does take some getting used to as it is very slimy.
Low and behold as a side benefit of consuming this fermented soybean, my eczema completely cleared up!
I still eat Natto daily and consider it essential to my healthy regimen.
would like to add Natto to the Remedies section.. Although a required taste, it would be a good addition to most diets.. Many Japanese eat it often for breakfast..
It has numerous health benefits, some proven....to name a few.. prevents osteoporosis, dissolves blood clots, high in vit K and protein, natural antibiotic...see Wiki for more info.
I believe it is usually better to add whole food sources of nutrients instead of the isolated compounds, since science is usually behind or incapable in measuring the complex array of interactions involved between nutrients & the body.
