In today’s episode, you’ll hear Dr. Jason share more about Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW) and how to heal from it. Dr. Jason is one of the rare practitioners and naturopaths who actually suffered from TSW as well (as he used steroids for 12 years!), so he has first-hand experience of it (Dr. Jason is also one of the experts and speakers in my 8 week group coaching program with the Conqueror Eczema Academy at https://conqueroreczemaacademy.com and also for my Baby & Children Eczema Workshop).

*In today’s podcast, we will cover:

  • What factors determine how long you'll go through TSW for
  • How long it usually takes to heal from TSW)
  • If you should reduce your steroid use slowly or cut out steroids cold turkey
  • Healing tips for your TSW journey
  • A case study of healing a patient from TSW

You'll learn why healing usually depends on a case by case basis, and why everyone's healing path is different (and why different solutions work for each person). If we have the chance, we may also do a follow-up podcast with him or another practitioner regarding topical steroid withdrawal, because it is such a popular topic these days. I hope you enjoy today's episode.

In today’s episode, you’ll learn how rejection, trauma, and stress may be flaring up or causing your eczema.

You'll also learn things like:

  • why relationships may be flaring you up
  • why changing your diet, adding supplements, and seeing doctors aren't helping you heal
  • learn an amazing story about a woman who couldn't eat any gluten and was finally able to eat gluten again after emotionally healing
  • find out my personal story of how relationships affected my skin (and how relationships may be affecting yours too).

Our guest today is Dr. Nima Rahmany, a chiropractor and Mental & Health Optimization Coach, who discovered that most illnesses stem from a past traumatic event. After 15 years as a chiropractor, Dr. Nima found that most of his patients came to see him for various issues that stemmed from stress. However, he became increasingly frustrated when chiropractic care alone could not address why people got sick, stressed, and stuck. 

Fascinated by the various healing methodologies he had studied for more than 20 years, he formulated The Overview Method™. Today, he dedicates his life to studying and teaching principles of healing the mind and body to overcome stress. He spread his message through speaking and working in one-on-one sessions with people across the globe.

Today’s podcast interview is all about giving hope to eczema sufferers around the world.

In this episode, I had the privilege of connecting with Julie Block, the CEO of the National Eczema Association to learn more about why 2015 is a year of hope for those suffering with eczema.

As someone who used to suffer from such incredibly severe eczema for so long before, I felt so alone during the process and I can’t believe that I never looked into the National Eczema Association during my flare ups. To be honest, I had no idea what they did and what resources they had on hand for someone like me.

During the interview, I was so touched by Julie’s passion and care to help those suffering from eczema. It’s so great to know that a CEO invests so much in helping with eczema and really wants to help people overcome it! There’s nothing better than having someone lead an organization who really cares about it.

WHAT WE COVER IN TODAY’S EPISODE:

  • Why eczema sufferers should feel hopeful in the upcoming year
  • Resources that they offer children and adult eczema sufferers
  • Research that the National Eczema Association is conducting
  • Their views on topical steroid withdrawal (skip to 17:40 on the video if you want to listen to it)
  • Annual eczema conference
  • What they’re doing to help spread awareness about eczema
  • How they are supporting and helping people with eczema

If you already know what the National Eczema Association does, skip the first 3 minutes to hear about their upcoming initiatives this year and why eczema sufferers can feel hopeful this year.

In this episode, Jennifer Roberge, owner of The Eczema Company, shares on “How to Prepare for a Diet Change.” As you know, a lot of people who suffer from eczema end up changing their diet to help with the flare ups. Jennifer has gone through many diets with her son, Tristan, who has eczema.

She also understands what it’s like to have a husband go through the same diet change (and it’s not always easy having a significant other going through it, too!).

Listen to her tips and advice on how to prepare for a diet change (both physically, mentally, and emotionally) because her advice will come very helpful.
