Do you have itchy skin, or know someone who does? You may have tried many TOPICAL remedies that either do nothing, or are helping somewhat, but YOUR SKIN IS STILL ITCHY!
Our natural products, as awesome as they are, should definitely help reduce the itchy skin, mainly because you are avoiding the dangerous chemical ingredients found in most commercial cosmetic products. Instead, you have wisely chosen healthy cosmetic alternatives.
However, if the problem is an allergy to something in your diet, then no matter how good you are about what touches your skin, you may still be ITCHY. WHY??
You may be one of the many Canadians who are being diagnosed with Celiac disease, where one cannot tolerate gluten. One of the symptoms of celiac is ITCHY SKIN.
Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also be found in everyday products such as medicines, vitamins, and lip balms.
Don’t despair. A gluten free diet is easier that you may first envision and is actually very healthy. Many of us have Celiac disease symptoms, and once we go on a gluten free diet, these symptoms go away. It is called gluten intolerant.
You may have many of the symptoms, get tested and find out you are actually celiac. At least now you know what is making you sick. (or maybe itchy).
Or you may decide on your own to try a gluten free diet for 3-4 weeks and see how you feel. Just for the health sake of it! Voila! You feel better.
I have recommended ‘Dr. Joshi’s Holistic Detox’ to many people. His 21 day detox (gluten free of course) leads into a maintenance program, and a lifestyle of better eating. I have received many positive testimonials, from people who not only feel better, have lost weight if needed, but also managed to give up some of their unwanted prescription drugs (under Doctor supervision of course).
Imagine if you can regain your former, itchy free skin back by simply changing your diet?
You can still continue to use our products of course. Our Emu oil, Argan Oil, Creams, Dead Sea Salt Spa, and soaps are all wonderful at reducing itchy dry skin!
Healthy choices in food and cosmetics simply make sense!
