More and more people now realize that health and beauty come from healthy living. In spite of what some doctors are trying to tell us, most health problems can be cured by a healthy, natural diet. Eliminating sugar and certain carbs can help improve many skin problems too. If you are suffering from eczema, psoriasis or other chronic skin rashes, dietary changes might be exactly what you need. A lot of the gastrointestinal problems are related to food allergies or sensitivities that you may not be aware of. They are very difficult to diagnose and sometimes elimination diet works best. See how Dr. Hoffman and other complementary medicine physicians address many health problems.
A dietary approach to the treatment of ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and even refractory constipation is not widely accepted, but is common among physicians who apply the knowledge from numerous research discoveries relating to the intestinal disease.
One such doctor is Ronald L. Hoffman, who is recognized as one of America’s foremost complementary medicine physicians. Hoffman successfully treats his patients suffering from an intestinal disease by placing them on a diet that eliminates certain sugars and starchy carbohydrates. Hoffman’s patients not only have been cured from various intestinal diseases, but other conditions, such as muscle aches, stiff joints, full-blown arthritis, chronic skin rashes, psoriasis, generalized fatigue and spaciness — have been unanticipatedly alleviated as well.
Other physicians, who derived their knowledge from their own clinical experience, also use a highly specific diet successfully.
Dr. Sidney V. Hass, (1870-1964), a pediatrician, documented his experience in treating and curing more than 600 cases of celiac disease and cystic fibrosis of pancreas with a strict grain-free, lactose-free and sucrose-free diet. He called this diet the Specific Carbohydrate Diet; when his patients would follow this diet for a minimum of one year, they were then able to return to a normal diet with complete and permanent disappearance of symptoms. In Hass’ own words, “There is complete recovery with no relapses, no deaths, no crisis, no pulmonary involvement and no stunting of growth.”
Dietary changes can have a very positive effect on many skin problems like acne, eczema, psoriasis and even wrinkles. Not many people realize that sugar in our diet actually accelerates the aging process so by eliminating sugar and many other carbs you can help improve many skin problems. To eliminate your cravings for sugar, snack on some fresh fruits which are not only delicious, but also nutritious.
