My baby was born full-term weighing a healthy 9 ½ lbs, but from her first feed she was extremely unsettled.
Eczema Rash Developed After 4 Weeks
At four weeks she developed a rash, which steadily grew worse & was diagnosed as eczema. Our family doctor prescribed a number of different creams to try – one for the face, another for the cracked & bleeding toes, another to cracks behind the ears, under the arms, behind the knees & on her neck which was raw and very hard to dry & dress - this required two people as the baby was so distressed. The doctor also prescribed a lactose-free formula for her supplementary feeds and referred her to the paediatric allergist at Brisbane Children’s Hospital.
The clinic nurse also recommended topical creams, etc, suitable laundry detergent and dietary changes for the breastfeeding mum.
We tried lotions etc which friends had found helpful for eczema, and baby was taken to recommended Bowen therapists and naturopaths where further products and treatments were tried. We appreciated any suggestion that could offer any sort of relief, and a lot of things did help in some way, for a time at least.
When baby was around 6 mths old, a wonderful friend phoned & asked if we had tested for heavy metals. She sent a home urine-test kit which showed both mother & baby had heavy metals, and breast-milk also showed a mercury reading. So, baby was weaned onto a bottle and our friend had us start a course of Activated Liquid Zeolite to remove these toxins.
By the time baby got to see the allergist, she was 9 mths old and as her skin was quite clear, a nurse suggested taking photos of her eczema along, to prove how severe it had been to qualify for the appointment!
Look At Her Now – What A Blessing!
This little girl is now 12 months old with no heavy metal showing in her urine test! We believe a detox by Activated Liquid Zeolite has helped to achieve her beautiful, baby skin! She does occasionally get an itchy spot on her leg or some other place, so no-one is saying the eczema is forever gone, but we are very thankful for the HUGE recovery she’s had.
Works For Mum Too
Since my follow-up urine test isn’t showing heavy metal either, I’ve noticed that cystic breast-lumps/soreness have disappeared, a cyst on the scalp has shrunk, menstrual heaviness has abated somewhat and tooth sensitivity has gone.
Some of the children have tried the zeolite and noticed white coating on the tongue has disappeared, improvement in a skin rash and no further cold-sores.
