There are many insults to skin in the shop, however the body usually
does a very good job of renewing the surface (it really is true that
we're flaking off all the time!). On the other hand there are some
specific things to consider.
Anyone who is having difficulty with DRY, ITCHY, SCALEY skin, hair,
nails, eyes (especially including vaginal dryness for those who are
so constructed) and associated inflammatory changes should consider a
very simple and entirely harmless treatment. The secret, which is
totally overlooked by most of the medical world, is dietary
supplementation with OMEGA 3 essential fatty acids. The two major
sources are flax seed oil and fish oil.
Those who wish to try a course of therapy should take a LARGE amount
and evaluate the results in one month. Using the bottled, liquid oil
take about an ounce a day (avoid the capsules, you'd have to take
too many), I mix mine into my breakfast smoothie. Mark your calendar
and evaluate your symptoms in a month. If things are greatly improved
(about 80% of people are) Then you can try reducing the amount you
take each day.
I'd be glad to hear from any of you off line.
