2 Weeks Cortisone Free
It's exactly 2 weeks of being Cortisone Free. The first week was terrible ... she was in a lot of pain but now 2 weeks later there's definite improvement! For 9 years we have solely relied on Cortisone creams and oral medicines as well as Antibiotics to fix her Eczema problem and now we are all tired of it! Year after Year of seeing skin specialist after skin specialist ... and every time it's the same old thing: Cortisone! We've had a complete mind shift ... and attitude change. Eden's been incredibly brave throughout this process and she's been extremely obedient with regards to her detox diet (I'm not starving my child ... we've simply removed certain food such as: dairy, wheat, egg, nuts, sweets (candy) etc. in an effort to heal her body) ... when she's done with her detoxing I will slowly start reintroducing these foods ONE at a time to see how she will respond. In the meanwhile we are using medicine from an incredibly gifted Homeopath as well as cream (all natural and herbal)... it seems to be working: - Eden's not as bloated anymore - less tummy ache and nausea - the rashes are getting lighter and less inflamed (she does still have eczema rashes especially on the back of her legs) but there's a drastic improvement. - not as itchy - not infected anymore - skin not as hot to the touch anymore. I'm happy with the progress we are making. Eden's school exams are around the corner so she'll be studying a lot and we'll be blogging less for the next 2 to 3 weeks.
