Signs of Eczema - gut health, gut-skin axis

You may be familiar with leaky gut. Did you know you can also have "leaky skin?"

Eczema is a 4 part problem:
1) Immune system issue
2) Skin barrier issue (leaky skin)
3) Allergies and/or asthma (immune system issue)
4) Elevated stress/cortisol (which suppresses the immune system and increases inflammation causing eczema to worsen)

When the immune system is malfunctioning a lot of problems surface. Eczema issues are one of them. Having been someone with a bad immune system myself, I know for a fact how nice it is to have these issues "helped." I no longer have to worry every time my kids come home with a cold.

“One bigger theory is attributed to Professor C. Akdis and his remarkable epithelial hypothesis: in short, the first problem is a leaky gut and leaky skin barrier, and then the bacterial imbalance (dysbiosis) follows that. A number of environmental factors, including things like microplastics and pollutants seem to contribute to this..."

To help with skin issues (from a gut perspective), you need to help restore balance, strengthen the gut barrier, restore healthy inflammatory responses, and restore normal immune responses. All of our protocols help with these things.
