Even if you don’t need an eczema cure, I’d be willing to bet you know someone who does. That’s because more than 15 million people in the U.S. are suffering from eczema at this very moment.
Eczema is an itchy, often painful rash. The typical treatment of steroid creams? Doesn’t really work.
Why’s that? It’s a short-term solution that doesn’t treat the real cause.
In her ground breaking e-book, The Eczema Cure, acupuncturist and holistic health practitioner Emily Bartlett writes about standard eczema treatments:
“These treatments fail because stopping the rash does not resolve the reason why the rash is happening in the first place. Eczema (and in fact most skin conditions) is a reflection of a deeper, internal imbalance typically originating from poor digestion. When a dermatologist gives you creams and medicines to make the skin clear, the internal issues are not addressed.
Using cortizone cream to fix eczema is a bit like painting a rickety house that’s about to fall down. It makes it look better, and you may feel better for a short period of time — but ultimately the underlying issues must be addressed.”
In other words, eczema is more than skin deep.
In fact, I’d argue that we should stop thinking about it like a “skin condition” at all.
It’s a digestion problem.
Emily goes on to explain the connection between eczema and a leaky gut. The term “leaky gut” describes a condition where the gut lining becomes permeable to toxins, undigested nutrients, and waste that would have otherwise simply been eliminated from the body. These foreign substances enter the bloodstream and cause an auto-immune response in the body.
Responses like mood disorders, joint pain, and (you guessed it!) … eczema.
So what causes leaky gut?
In her book, The Eczema Cure, Emily gives a rather comprehensive list.
It includes things like:
- Excessive stress
- Eating the wrong foods and/or not eating the right ones
- Gut dysbiosis (imbalanced gut flora)
- Inherent weak digestion (all children fall into this category)
Her list goes on.
Now for some good news! Eczema can be cured.
You don’t have to wait for it to just go away on it’s own. You can actually heal your leaky gut, and by extension … your eczema.
In The Eczema Cure, Emily shares her personal journey.

Think this is photoshopped or somehow doctored? I promise it isn’t.
You see, Emily Bartlett isn’t just some random author selling her wares on the internet. She’s my friend.
She’s a real person. A real mom. A real health practitioner.
And this is her story.
Eczema is one of the most common conditions I treat in my practice. Over the years, I’ve had a ton of experience with this condition in everything from it’s mildest, “slightly annoying” form, to full-blown, chronic conditions that were devastating my clients’ health, social lives and at times, even their careers.
I witnessed countless examples of what doesn’t work for treating eczema, let alone cure it. It didn’t take long for me to realize, creams and drugs simply cannot fix this condition. That’s the bad news … but you already know it: There is no medical cure for eczema.
The good news is, through research and first-hand experience healing my patients and my family, I also know what does work. You see, there is a solution, after all!
How does this book help?
After an initial section delving into the root causes of eczema, The Eczema Cure goes on to describe 4 actionable steps you can take to heal your eczema from the inside out.
She teaches you how to identify environmental and dietary triggers, how to strengthen your body’s defenses, and how to heal eczema with real food.
Finally, she empowers you with a host of recipes for incorporating these changes into your diet.
If you or someone you love suffers from eczema, I highly recommend you read this book. And because Emily is a friend (and because I asked her to!), she decided to offer you guys an exclusive coupon for her book. (Gracias, chica!)
