Eczema sufferer “cured” by a strict vegan diet of RAW fruit and vegetables.

I often tell my readers about the importance of eating enough raw fruit and vegetables in order to overcome diseases and achieve optimum health.

This case clearly illustrates the effect a raw vegan diet can have on your body.

Alice Morgan, 22, from England, has suffered with a debilitating form of eczema which would cause her body to become covered in blisters over the past three years.

She developed the painful skin condition as a child, but her first adult flare-up occurred was three years ago and seemed to worsen with cold weather.

At times, it stopped her from leaving the house and she sunk into depression due to the stares and comments of strangers.

Miss Morgan said she spent hours looking for a cure after trying creams, lotions, steroids, supplements, homeopathic and naturopathic remedies without success.

It is only now she is following a strict vegan diet that the flare-ups have stopped.

She said in an interview: “I would get this feeling like my blood was bubbling with heat, then a bone, deep itch in my skin that I could never reach even when I gave in and scratched it,’.

‘It would get quite swollen, redden and I’ve have lots of red dots all over my skin – it was really hot and there wasn’t much I could do to cool it down, apart from take Dead Sea salt baths as often as I could.

‘After that my skin would ooze, that was pretty horrible.

‘When I didn’t have much control over the itching, I would often wake up with blood on my sheets and pyjamas.

‘Then there’s a heat which usually came off of my neck, arms and cheeks.

‘In the next stage it would dry out, become scaly and flaky all over my face and body.

‘The flaking stage lasts for days on end, there isn’t a great deal you can do when your skin is like this apart from moisturise, with a pure organic oil like almond or avocado.

‘It was really hard to deal with, in the past I have felt lonely, awkward, low, uncomfortable, antisocial, ugly, anxious, the list goes on.”

 

before

Before this flare-up she hadn’t had eczema since childhood

 

Miss Morgan suffered her first eczema flare-up since childhood during her second year of university.

But despite doctors prescribing steroids, she found they only worsened her condition.

“It was out of control, over my face and arms, I’d never had it on my legs before too.

‘People don’t understand how severe eczema can get, it’s not just little patches behind the knees, elbows, it spreads all over my body.

‘There’s no hiding it really, which makes you feel self-conscious and awkward in social situations.’

After traditional steroid treatments failed to work, she pursued various natural remedies, tests and other diets all without success.

She also tried following specialist diets, avoiding certain foods and cutting out alcohol, wheat and dairy.

Miss Morgan, who works as a chartered surveyor, had lost hope until three months ago, when she started a grain-free, raw vegan diet – eating only raw fruit and vegetables for her three meals a day.

 

after

Eventually, she found a diet made up of mostly raw fruit and veg helped her skin to clear

 

She said the diet has stopped the flare-ups and her skin is healthier than ever.

‘It’s a very, very restrictive diet but I feel the best I have done in a long time,’ she said.

‘It got to the point where I was prepared to do anything to get better again.

‘At the moment I’m trying to stick to my raw vegan diet, I don’t eat any grains and 80 per cent of everything I eat is raw.

‘I’ve seen results since day one and although it’s a tough diet to follow it seems to be worth it, I just hope I can maintain it.

‘Before, I felt like eczema had taken my life away, but I am now determined to get it back and be able to live a normal life like before my flare-ups.

‘I have enough creams and lotions to open a pharmacy, but now since discovering my new diet I’m choosing to keep everything as natural as possible.

‘I am a true believer that the correct diet can cure any disease or illness’.
