Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a very common skin condition affecting both adults and children. It is characterized by red, itchy and scratchy patches of skin. It more commonly affects children but can affect adults as well. This is a chronic condition, but it does tend to flare up periodically, especially if aggravated by certain environmental factors, food types or other variables. At this time, there is no cure for eczema, but there are many treatment options that can help alleviate itching and prevent further outbreaks.

13 נובמבר 2017
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) may seem like a new condition, but I first wrote about it over 35 years ago.

Yet, I noticed that many of the patients I was seeing had these symptoms, but no evidence of candida being out of control. Something else had to be responsible for their symptoms and an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine seemed like a very good explanation. In the last 10 years or so, SIBO has become a big buzzword in research and on the internet. Fortunately, there are effective answers.
