Should you entertain an alternative method?

After the first NAET blog post by Jennifer went live, I was excited to see the outcome. Upon waiting for the part 2 to post, there was unexpected opposition to NAET treatment. Most of us have heard that finding the underlying cause to itchy/sensitive skin is a trial and error process. I was caught off guard when a commenter gave some expected opposition to alternative methods. While this person had valid concerns, it made me re-evaluate the need for alternative medicine. During my search for the cure, I’ve become aware of many different ideas and ways to hopefully reduce itchiness, Read More

Love or Blame: Which do you choose?

Have you had one of these days that left you internally screaming? I was talking to my mom about her granddaughter’s itchy skin. And I could tell this conversation was not going in the direction I had hoped. She simply didn’t understand what I was going through. She was trying, yet she just couldn’t. I called another friend, hoping she could potentially give me some tips or encouragement. Better yet, just listen. Yep, unavailable. Reached out to my husband at work…busy. Let the Scream Fest begin.

Seeing eczema for the first time….Update!!

After writing about Althea’s family experience a few months ago, we were excited to take a moment to catch up with her again for updates! We’ll cut right to the chase and focus on Esau, as his sibling’s have just about grown out of their eczema. Shortly after being around Althea’s energetic and loving bunch, she quickly grabbed my attention towards Esau’s arms. Althea was SO elated that she tried wet dresses for his arms because of the overnight improvement she’s witnessed. Their pediatrician suggested that she try a wet dress to increase his moisture retention. And sure enough, although Read More
