Incessant itchy, weeping skin, and red patches are all too common for an eczema sufferer.
The reason why eczema is so hard to treat is because it requires a multi-faceted approach to reduce the inflammation in the skin which then slowly reduces the eczema lesions.
A multi-faceted approach incorporates nutrition, stress management, skin health, overall wellbeing and lifestylefactors. By creating an anti-inflammatory life your body will heal from the inside out which effectively helps in the management of eczema to reduce future flare frequency and severity.
Dr Irene Prantalos (Chinese Medicine) knows too well as she was covered from head to toe with psoriasis. Spending many years on trying to find a solution led her down the path of studying Chinese Medicine just to try and help herself out of a very challenging time with her health. After being hospitalised twice and being told there was nothing conventional medicine could do, Dr Irene tested many therapies.
Chinese Medicine worked for her and has a great effect on her patients with both eczema and psoriasis, as the focus is on reducing the inflammation in the skin, NOT suppressing the immune system. Supressing the Immune system will only cause side effects in the body that lead to future flare ups and more distress and pain.

Patient case study: Based on treating eczema with herbal medicine and treatment plan.
Patient case: One – on – one consults with Dr Irene"I wanted to thank you for the Zoom consult last month and for helping my husband with the herbs and your treatment plan.
He has been better since taking them with less inflammation, irritation and itching. His mental health has improved as has his energy levels. He is spending less time in the bath, last night not at all!
This is the first time in months he hasn't needed the bath to get to sleep. He is still itchy, but not as much as before, where it was incessant. He is getting to bed earlier with less disruption from the itch therefore, more sleep.
Thankfully this has given space, care and love back into our relationship! The stress has been hard. You really did feel like our last resort and thank goodness your treatment is helping."
