There can be many reasons for your skin problems. Most of the time they are related to stress or an unhealthy diet. It is very important to address both issues if you are experiencing skin problems such as eczema, acne or psoriasis.
Frankly, I used to be a sitting duck when it came to skin problems. My love affair with makeup began at an early age. I was keen on being perfect (big job for a 13-year-old). I can clearly remember the day I had to halt my daily beauty regimen when I woke up covered head to toe in little red dots! They would soon grow into a full-fledged case of psoriasis. This was a bittersweet disease as it took me on a journey that would shape my life forever.
After some very painful and embarrassing years of hiding my skin and using extremely toxic remedies such as harsh cortisones and tar (yes, tar), I found Eileen Poole. She was an inspiration for me; a famous “psychic nutritionist” who put me on a diet of very specific foods. Eileen told me that skin disease is “a cancer releasing outside the body and not inside.” She told me I was lucky and that I should think of myself as blessed. Holy crap, really? I was only a child but her words resonated somewhere in my young mind.
I did not realize the gift Eileen had given me at the time, but her words have been a guidepost for me throughout the years. Now, whenever I get even the smallest outbreak I know I am not in balance, and instead of hitting the cortisone, I need to hit the yoga mat.
