Modern medicine is clearly vested in what I like to call the Las Vegas mentality. We’ve all heard that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” and it seems that, as it relates to medicine today, we still tend to look at illness as being uniquely related to the body system that is affected. For example, autism is thought to represent a brain disorder having to do with the development and functionality of that organ. This is despite the ever-increasing research that demonstrates significant gut abnormalities associated with this disorder. Further, a recent study has shown that giving children with asthma increased amounts of dietary fiber leads to significant improvement. This study clearly challenges the notion that asthma is specifically a lung related disorder.

“Your skin looks great!” The compliment we all love to hear. The reason we all appreciate that compliment so much is probably because our skin is literally a mirror image for how well we’re taking care of ourselves. What’s going on internally is reflected in our skin, so if our skin is glowing, it means we’re really nurturing and nourishing ourselves! Clearing up the skin starts within, and here are 5 things you can do to give your skin that healthy glow we all crave.
According to a survey published in 2007, a substantial proportion of the U.S. population has symptoms of eczema—31.6 million to be more specific. Most of these cases are not diagnosed by a physician, which shows these conditions are often undertreated.
Eczema (also called atopic dermatitis) affects both kids and adults, and is more common in cities and polluted areas. It’s also linked with asthma and allergies, and causes symptoms like itching, redness, and rashes.
