Does Diet Help With Seborrheic Dermatitis?
As a sufferer of seborrheic dermatitis I often wondered what made me flare up. After I learned what the actual cause was I started to piece everything together and it makes a lot of sense. Let me run you through it so that you will see it how I do. First of all let me tell you I first realized that I had seborrheic dermatitis when I was around 14. I had horrible, I mean really bad flaking and itching scalp. There were times that it was really, really bad. Then there were times that it wasn’t near as bad. I was constantly licking my fingers and then using them to scrape the seborrheic dermatitis flakes out of my eyebrows and ears.
Are there foods that you should avoid or stay away from?
Oh yes! Or should I Say Oh Yeast! We here you go! When it comes to seb derm think of yeast that turns into a fungus. Women understand this as the yeast in the genitals that turns into infection is because the yeast turned into fungus. So what will promote this. If you are eating fruit sugars or regular sugars you are promoting the growth of the fungus that causes seb derm called malassezia globosa or fufur.
Fried foods and omega 6′s and 9′s can cause the symptoms to worsen. This is because the delicate balance of omega 3′s versus 6′s and 9′s is out of balance! Yes, supplementing with omega 3′s will anybody that has symptoms of dandruff or seb derm. However, unless you cut out the sugar intake you will still have symptoms.
The hair treatments that we designed cut down the excess oils or sebum that the scalp emits and the herbs also remove blockages inside the hair follicles. This is vital since the bacteria and fungus hide, burrow down into the follicle away from any typical shampoos!
Zincplex ingredients were designed to flush out that nasty hair follicle and also help to regulate oil production, by cutting down the amount of sebum that gland produces inside the follicle. This basically eliminates the food source for excessive fungus growth. The result is a massive drop in symptoms.
When Is Seborrheic Dermatitis Its Worst and What Are The Causes?
As a general rule your dermatitis symptoms will be there worst when your oils glands are pumping out the most oils. For most people this is in your early teens through early twenties! Just depending on your maturity through aging. However, it is important to note that your symptoms are worse during this time simply because the oils are not being removed well. There are ways to do this! As a matter of fact that was my basis for 3 years of studying to put together an amazing ingredient complex to stop excess oil production anywhere on the body including the scalp!
The Worst Mistakes You Can Make With Seborrheic Eczema, Dermatitis or Just Seborrhea!
Because the scalp or many people gets so inflamed and irritable they do not think that they should wash it. That is one of the worst things that you can do. Make sure to not only wash but make sure that you are deep cleansing those follicles. Give your follicles a fresh start – like washing and ringing out a sponge!
