came up clear! None-the-less even after avoiding all her triggers she continued to get worse, until in 2019, when she was 3 years old, she ended up spending a week in hosptial on IV drips and strong medications because of her eczema, where it got infected. Her whole body was covered in eczema and even though I tried everything I could possibly do (my life revolved around it) with strict diets, moisurising 3x a day, steroid creams 2-3x a day, bleach baths 2x a week, wrapping her up in wet bandages and pyjamas to go to sleep in, to try get the moisture back into her skin, I really felt sad and defeated that I could not let my little girl feel better. It was the worst feeling you could have being a parent.
My Daughter wrapped up in wet bandages and moisturizer to sleep in after her bleach bath in hospital.
We had a pediatrition assigned from the hospital who was lovely, but all she could do was prescribe the strongest steroid cream (which we were already using) and just said we are not using enough steroid, we needed to use more. A skin specialist said the same, we needed to apply more steroids, and even gave us a prescription that the pharmacist even questioned us about and said 'Do you know this is known to cause skin cancer?' Luckily we didn't use that particular cream and didn't give up trying to find a solution. We started seeing a famous homeopath in Melbourne and my little girl started to heal. The amount of steroids she was using would have caused a normal person without eczema to get Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW) symptoms, similar to eczema symptoms if they suddenly stopped, and so over time we managed to ween her off of the steroid creams.
6 months after we tried homeopathy this is what she looked like.. It was a bit slow to begin with, and we had to try a couple of different medicines, but there was progress. After 6 months of treatment with the homeopath we were at the point where her skin was clear, and she had totally weened off of the steroids and bleach baths. We still had to be careful about what she ate but her skin was clear! Over time she just got better and better - and can even eat anything she likes, her allergies have gone, even chocolate (one of her triggers).... and like her treating homeopath said, 'a life without chocolate is not worth living!'
..... So after having ran a busy Bowen Therapy clinic since 2015, I decided I needed to learn homeopathy to be able to help other people with problems like my daughter, so other families can have a happy ending too! :)
Since 2021 I have had some wonderful success stories using homeopathy. You can read some case studies by clicking 'Homeopathy' under 'Categories' on the right hand side of this post
