It's a short, simple, drastically different diet--not necessarily easy, but simple and effective. The goal of this guide is to help people with eczema or almost any kind of skin disorder heal themselves without ongoing dependence on drugs, creams, lotions, or other medicine by relating what worked for this author personally to cure her eczema, dermatitis and acne. There's a lot of information out there, especially on the internet, but much of it can seem vague or conflicting regarding the combination of symptoms you may have. Waterford did a lot of informal research and trial and error over a long period of time and eventually cured her eczema, general health, and most of her allergies with a natural diet. If you've had no luck with doctors, allergy drugs, cortisone cream, or other eczema treatments, this particular combination of treatments that she stumbled upon may also help you.

Wendy Green, Author of 50 Things You Can Do Today to Manage Eczema (Personal Health Guides)
I already knew to do the things she recommends as I eat a paleo diet so I could've saved myself a fiver but I thought she might have had a different approach. To summarise - eat meat, healthy oils, non starchy veg, almonds, sunflower & pumpkin seeds and stevia and no fruit, starchy veg or grains for a month. Rotate anti fungals like pau d'arco, garlic and grapefruit seed extract and drink lots of water. Most things I've read says it takes about 3 months so just do the above for as long as you can and you should results. Hope I've saved you a fiver.
Buy 'The Eczema Solution' instead which has helped me far more and is based on the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital programme.

She was able to greatly reduce her eczema with a strict yeast diet. I agree that a very strict yeast free diet can reduce the symptoms, but that is a very difficult way to live, because every time you cheat, you're back at square one.
She explains that she had to resort to topical steroids to finally get rid of the rash. I completely disagree with the use of topical steroids. This simply suppresses the illness, which will often then manifest in a deeper condition, the most frequent which is asthma.
Dr. Bernard Jensen in his classic work Chemistry of Man (Man Series, Second Edition) had numerous cases of eczema clear up simply by switching from cow's milk to goat's milk. I've personally seen a case of childhood eczema that was so severe the child had difficulty walking, completely clear up simply by discontinuing cow's milk. So I would start there.
We eventually found our cure through homeopathy. While we consulted with a professional homeopath, she just wasn't able to see the case clearly enough. Homeopathy is different than traditional medicine because they don't always use the same remedy for the same condition. It is highly personalized, and you have to find the exact match to your symptoms, overall health, and personality.
I eventually ended up enrolling in Homeopathic school myself, and through a series of events was led to the book "The Homeopathic Treatment of Eczema" by Robin Logan. It is in print, but for some reason is not currently available on Amazon. In it he lists 42 different possible remedies for eczema; the trick is to find the best match for your case. I had to read the book in its entirety two times before I figured out which was the best remedy for my son. For us the guiding symptoms were that it was significantly worse on the right side, he's aggressive, bites, kicks, pulls hair, and has red streaks after scratching. It sounds odd I know. But it pointed me to the right remedy.
So she has a part of the problem that can help you minimize outbreaks until you find the correct remedy. It just wasn't the complete answer for us.
