My guest, Gilda Rovan, shared all about drainage pathways: what it is, how to tell if your drainage pathways are congested, and how to open up your drainage pathways to help eczema & topical steroid withdrawal (TSW).
 
You'll also learn other helpful information, including:  
  • Why going on a restrictive diet isn't the answer
  • What are drainage pathways and why is it important to keep it open?
  • Why detox programs can be ineffective if you don't clear your liver and kidneys
  • What are the differences between detox pathways and drainage pathways?
  • Why is drainage so gentle compared to detoxes?

In this episode, my guest talks all about how mouth breathing is tied to eczema, skin issues and the overall health of the rest of the body. We also discuss 2 research studies that specifically studied the link between mouth breathing and eczema (links below).

Mouth breathing can be related to:
  • Asthma & atopic dermatitis
  • Facial development changes (long narrow face & narrow mouth)
  • Crooked/crowded teeth & braces
  • Sleep interruption
  • Reduced oxygen levels
  • A tongue-tie
In children, interrupted breathing during sleep can have severe effects on brain growth. 
 
Here are 2 Links to mouth breathing and eczema research studies:

Here are additional studies demonstrating the link between dental infection & eczema:
