"How to heal eczema, psoriasis, allergies, and acne with a mostly raw lifestyle"
My name is Lillian Chan, I live in New York City, and this is my story...
It has been over 3 and a half years since I had eczema, psoriasis, allergies, and acne.
What worked for me was not topical, but instead it was a mostly raw, vegan lifestyle.
Why not topical? Because, skin issues are signals to show us that
we are not eliminating waste efficiently through our natural exit route.
Since our bodies are made to survive, our bodies may choose to eliminate through the largest organ- the skin. That's why sweat can smell bad, your body is eliminating waste through your sweat.
Also, be thankful that YOUR body is smart enough to eliminate through your skin, instead of store the toxin into a cancerous tumor or something.
Anyway, back to the beginning...
Ever since I was 13, I had acne or some type of skin issue... This caused me
to be very shy, and insecure. ...I felt like nobody could see me beyond my skin... I would be very anti-social when I had a skin flare-up. I would have highs and lows of energy. This all started around the time I had finished the surgery of removing my appendix.
After that, I spent over 10 years trying every topical cream, antibiotic medicine, and dermatologist suggested regimen... I was getting desperate, and I was ready for a chemical peel or something.
But, before I looked into more medical options, I started to listen to the beautiful people around me. They had great skin, so I found out what they were doing. Many neighbors in my dog run & park are vegetarian. It was all very curious, so I started to do my own research.
I delve into the vegan world, reading book after book after book. You won't believe how many restaurants cater to the vegetarian world until you LOOK!
Anyway, health gurus like Harvey Diamond, Dr. Norman Walker, Victoria Boutenko, Sarma Melngailis, and Matthew Kenney gave me a "success map" through their books.
This map was how I was going to make the best out of my life. I took control of my life. No more advice from dermatologists. I was tired to being told what to do. I was going to find out what was right for me. After all, every human is different, so why would the same medicine work for everyone?
A high raw food, vegan lifestyle just made sense. Humans are the ONLY animals on the planet that eat cooked food, and are also the only animals with degenerative diseases and cancer.
I started off slow on salad or fruit before my cooked meals. The raw fruits or salads would give me enzymes to digest the cooked meal. Since I'm a Chinese American, dairy was
never a part of my life. So, veganism was simple, just cut out the meat, and I could eat everything else. I enjoyed Chinese food, and sushi.
After a few months, I lost some weight and my skin was looking better. I was feeling physically more active. I wanted to keep going. I got into raw vegan foods. This is wear my health skyrocketed. I would eat raw until dinner. After 1 year, I was feeling great, lost a lot of weight, and patches of eczema disappeared.
I would enjoy freshly squeezed juices, raw fruits, salads, raw chocolate, and raw gourmet foods before dinner. At dinner, I would have my cooked meal. So I never felt deprived.
It took me 3 years to completely clear my skin, and I was very impatient at times.
It's important to remember that if you had eczema or psoriasis for 10 years, than you must honor that period. Understand that it may take awhile to completely clear your skin, but it will happen if YOU make it happen.
