Juicing for eczema is a natural way to reduce your eczema symptoms.
As an eczema sufferer you are probably only too aware how difficult it is to pin point the cause of this irritating skin condition. Some practitioner believe that toxins in the blood cause eczema. It’s thought that the appearance of eczema is a sign that your body is not eliminating toxins efficiently.
A juice detox or regular intake of freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juice is one way to help your body eliminate those nasty toxins and reduce the symptoms of your eczema.
Some people have had great success using wheatgrass when juicing for eczema. Grown from the whole-wheat grain, wheatgrass has been recognised for years for its general healing qualities. It provides a powerful detoxifier and cleanser.
Wheatgrass contains high levels of vitamin A, B, C and E as well as known minerals. As this is a living plant that is cut just before juicing it contains high levels of chlorophyll (this is what gives it it’s vibrant green colour). Cholorophyll works on the liver to eliminate harmful toxins from your body.
Why not try this wheatgrass recipe to see if it helps you combat some of your eczema symptoms.
Just be aware that wheatgrass can be quite strong on the stomach and it’s not recommended that you exceed 4oz a day. To start with you may want to dilute it with cucumber, white cabbage or apples and see how you go. It’s also most effective when consumed on an empty stomach, so perfect first thing in the morning.
