Natural Herbs for Treating Eczema
Eczema is a common skin condition and a large percentage of these Eczema sufferers are children. There are many creams for eczema, some natural and some that may be prescribed. As a natural remedy for eczema, creams are perhaps one of the most common treatments. At least the very least they do not contain chemicals and have no side effects.
Of recent there has been considerable research on Hemp Seed oil as a treatment for Eczema. Hempseed oil is an exceptional source of EFAs; the essential fatty acids that we must obtain from our daily diet because, like vitamins, we can't produce them on our own.
Judging from the fatty acid profile of Hempseed oil, and the results of clinical investigations, Hempseed oil is considered one of the healthiest oil on the market and recently thought to benefit as a remedy for Eczema.
GLA, which stands for gamma-linolenic acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid. Lack of GLA in the diet has been thought to be associated with allergies and a compromised immune system.
Supplementation with products containing EFAs has been found capable of reversing scaly skin disorder, inflammation, prevent drying, itch, and poor wound healing caused by EFA deficiency.
GLA which is found in Hemp Seed oil has been shown to be beneficial natural treatment for atopic eczema and psoriasis.
Hemp Seed can be taken internally; the oil has a pleasant nutty flavour and can be used in salads or can even be ingested with a liquid. It can also be used externally by applying it on the affected area. It may not work for everyone but is worth a try and taken internally it is very healthy oil for many health benefits.
