This was a special episode with Joovv (learn more about them here: https://lddy.no/clz6), who are the creators of the first medical-grade red light therapy devices that you can use at the comfort of your own home. 

Although many people use red light therapy for anti-aging, joint pain, inflammation, wrinkles, gut healing, and thyroid issues - it was actually first created by the founders who used it to successfully treat their eczema! 

Many health practitioners and experts also endorse their product - including Dr. Axe, Dr. Mercola, Ben Greenfield, Dave Aspery (Founder of Bulletproof), Olympians, world-class trainers ,and many more. 

Today, Joovv systems are used in salons and spas around the world for natural skin health, wrinkles, dermatitis, and anti-aging benefits.

In today's episode, we talked about:

  • How red light therapy can heal your gut
  • How to use it to fight inflammation
  • How it helps anti-aging and wrinkles
  • Why you only need to use it for 10 mins a day
  • Why it's so effective
  • The side effects of it (there are none!)
  • Why it's calming and healing for the body
  • How to choose the best red light therapy device
  • Why it's safer than using phototherapy
  • How it's helped patients during chemotherapy

Today I have a solo episode (from my Encouragement Series) on the topic of humiliation and self love, and how to deal with humiliation with eczema. I shared my own personal stories of experiencing humiliation, pain and the embarrassment of going through this. 

Here's what I shared in today's podcast:

- Stories of humiliation that have happened to me
- How others have experienced humiliation from eczema 
- Why one woman and her son were kicked off a plane for their skin condition
- Solutions & strategies to deal with humiliation from eczema
- How meditations, therapy and self-love can help the eczema healing process

Some of the stories in this episode were pretty emotional to share, so I hope this episode can help you if you're going through eczema and dermatitis.

P.S. At the beginning of the podcast, I also started by sharing about 2 brands that reached out to offer me a paid partnership. I turned it down because their ingredients weren't as "clean" as I'd hoped for.

Here is a new episode for my new "Encouragement Series" from The Eczema Podcast to let you know that having eczema is not your fault. You may have blamed yourself, felt shame or embarrassment from having eczema and dermatitis, but nothing that's happened to you is your fault.

It's not your fault that you suffer with this.
It's not your fault that you have eczema on your body.
It's not your fault that it interferes with your daily activities, or that you feel different from other people who don't have to go through this.

Hopefully a message like this will help you feel less alone and also encourage you to not give up.
