I have heard of this also, but haven’t tried it consistently. My daughter who struggles with eczema is 5 also, and has struggled off and on since she was a baby. Probably about 2 1/2 to 3 years ago, I decided to try the hazelwood necklaces from http:// , and they have made a world of difference for her! She wears them constantly and I usually have to buy a new one about once a year. Many types of eczema are caused by too much acid in the body and the hazelwood on this necklace absorbs acid from the body. It took a few weeks of wearing the necklace to start working, but my daughter has only had probably two mild breakouts since then, and I think it was when a necklace started to lose it’s effectiveness and needed to be replaced.
I got this in May…right after I had a severe panic attack,, I had been dealing with alot of stress, I had two children with in 22 months of each other, and dealing with postpartum,, I have not been able to get back to my ole’ self. All the anxiety, stress, depression, panic attacks, I could feel the tow it was taking inside me, I believe for me, it is 100% related to the panic attacks, stress etc.. I agree with the article, and in general if I got more excercize I think it would help,, I had eczema on all my fingers, and have been taking a type of steroid creme to put on my fingers,, now it is mainly my thumb, at times it feels raw and hurts most the time,, how I would love to feel my babies soft skin without the roughness of my peeled rough skin.. some of the tips of my fingers feel a little numb. I am doing my best to try and take it easy, not stress so much,, excercize is hard, having the two little ones with no one to watch, and I can’t afford a gym membership,,just wanted to tell you all to hang in there,,
