severe eczema

My son is 22 years old. He has been plagued with chronic eczema for the last 2 years. He doesn't sleep at all. His whole body itches from head to toe. He has major anxiety attacks. We have been to several doctors and always get the same answer which is there is no answer. He can't go on like this and neither can the rest of the family. I know he does have an over-active affection for sugar, especially chocolate. Would this have an extreme adverse affect on his condition? Do you have any information on what we might be able to do for him?

There is a lot to be done in the realm of natural medicine. While one can guess that this or that is the problem, only an elimination diet will pin it down. Foods which are common causes: eggs, fish, nuts, orange, tomato, artificially flavored foods and sweets, soft drinks containing sulfites and chocolate, colas, peach, dairy, potato chips, and bananas. Other factors: cigarette smoke, house dust mites, heat (sweating), stress and anxiety. Detoxification can be of great benefit as can supplementation with potent high quality nutrients/vitamins/essential fatty acid preparations. If the gut wall is infected (a very common problem), the situation will not clear up until this is handled. (Use the Search function and search for "GALT.") This is not meant to be a recommendation for treatment but simply to let you know there is a lot to be done. I suggest you fire whatever doctor told you there is nothing to be done and find a doctor who practices good medicine. Start by using the Find A Doctor function above.

Thank you so much for your response. I have been on this site reading about the High Resolution Blood Morphology. The whole article sounds very logical to me and may be a good place to start helping my son. He is so ill and depressed that I am afraid this will kill him. He is normally a very intelligent, very fun-loving person. I want my son back. Your clinic seems to be the closest to where we are (Simi Valley). What do I need to do in order to get Ryan there? Is this a place where he stays? Or do we just come in for a consultation? He has just about given up. I want to save him. Please let me know what my next step is.
