I have a confession to make.
I recently stopped taking my prednisone.
Sounds crazy, I know. But, if you are like me, I hope that you’ll find some comfort in the story that I am about to tell you. Like you, I’ve suffered from eczema my entire life. Most of it was on my face but, I’ve had outbreaks on my legs, arms and hands, as well. As a teenager, “self-conscious” couldn’t even begin to describe the way living with eczema made me feel.
As an adult, I hoped that it might get better but, it never did. After one particularly terrible outbreak, complete with a staph infection, my battle with eczema became more about getting relief than anything else.
I’ve tried everything to treat my eczema from topical and oral steroids to changing my diet and of course, doing all the usual things the dermatologist told me to do to keep my condition under control. Nothing seemed to work and finally, I resigned myself to taking prednisone on a weekly basis to manage my skin and get some relief. Perhaps you can relate?
Sometimes, I’d feel the side effects from the prednisone; headaches, loss of appetite and trouble sleeping. I knew this wasn’t the best option for me but, the benefits of temporarily easing my discomfort felt like they outweighed the potential long term consequences to my health. Even though I was getting relief from my eczema, I knew I couldn’t go on like this forever.
Then, in late 2012, I was contacted by Dr. Michael Zenn, author of The Self Health Revolution. He had developed a 100% organic botanical product sourced from the best ingredients from around the world called Herbal Face Food. He wanted me to test it out on my eczema and give him my personal and professional feedback.
I had a recent eczema outbreak on my leg, so I started there by applying a thin layer twice a day. The Herbal Face Food had a warm, stimulating sensation on my skin that indicated it was working deep within the layers of my epidermis. I continued to use it daily and within 5 days the patch of eczema had completely cleared. The picture on the left is an actual before and after of my leg during my trial use of the Herbal Face Food.
Needless to say, I was astounded at how quickly and effectively this bottle of edible anti-oxidant serum worked. I was curious, was it just me or would this work for others with eczema too?
I had to find out, so I gave a trial size of the Herbal Face Food to a client who also has eczema and she had the exact same experience. Her eczema cleared in a matter of days.
So, What is Herbal Face Food, Exactly?
Herbal Face Food is an all natural anti-oxidant serum that can be used to help provide relief from eczema and psoriasis and also works to brighten, tighten and tone the skin. It is made of 100% organic plant concentrates such as aloe, oregano, lavender, clove and other organic plant based oils which work gently, but effectively on the skin. By selecting only the highest scoring anti-oxidants on the ORAC scale, Dr. Zenn was able to create a product that gets results without compromising integrity.
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a cutting-edge, scientific method developed by the National Institute on Aging (part of the National Institute of Health) used to score the anti-oxidant levels in plant-based foods. Herbal Face Food contains plant concentrates that are some of the highest ever tested on the ORAC scale, which is why it is so effective.
Michael invited me to be part of a very select group of professionals to launch the distribution of Herbal Face Food and I feel incredibly lucky to have been introduced to his product. I finally have some normalcy in my life and can sleep through the night without itching! Equally important, is that it’s been 2 months now since I’ve taken any prednisone. I’ve seen a dramatic change not only in my skin, but my overall health and energy levels, as well.
