I have a case of ezcema on my face, it showed up around a year ago and made me look like a freakin leper. It took me months of trying everything under the sun to get it under control, (meds, sterioids, etc) and finally found something called vanicream which works wonders. I get ezcema on my beard area, so after shaving I use it like an after shave balm. But I have to apply it twice a day religiously. It's non-steroidal.

It's a shame our medical system is chock full of pill prescribing automatons who are only interested in treating the symptom rather than the cause...after all, what good is it for them if they actually cured diseases?

I think that is one thing that Easter Medicine has going for it. They take a more holistic approach to medicine as opposed to just treating the symptoms.

Your avatar looks like something off of the latest Tool CD (which I just got).

Tiecollector, May I ask what it is that you do for a living that makes you more knowledgeable than a medical doctor or puts you in a position to regard someone with a decades worth of formal education as being "One step up from a Clinique counter?"

Shaman perhaps?

MrR

Slightly presumptuous to ask what I do. I won't tell you what my day job is, but I will tell you that I have a formal education in a difficult, highly technical field. I have worked in research labs, know enough statistics to make the numbers do whatever I want them to, and I read pubmed daily. I also speak with people both online and in person who I feel are competent, passionate and really push the envelope to look at things in a different way.

Dermatologists especially rub me the wrong way because I have seen several and they could hardly answer any of my questions, some of which I was testing them with. Also NONE of them were keeping up with the latest research that I thought they would have at least heard about. Not to mention, at one of them the guy tried to charge me for a surgery he didn't even perform. Every single one of them tried to rush me out the door too to get to the next patient.

Anyways, I wouldn't push anything I haven't tried myself. I read information and then go buy supplements or make my own topicals to apply on myself. Sometimes I hit, sometimes I miss.

Is it really hard to believe that a trillion dollar industry like the pharmaceutical industry can't have enough leverage to get what they want? I am all for emergency medicine, but taking toxic substances continuously to cover up symptoms is just as backwards as it comes.

Doctors think they can come up with a molecule that will do something better than nature and not effect you in a negative way. Think again doc.

I know there is probably no science behind this but I started tanning about a weeka go and I have improved by 95%. it was really bad on my lower back and rear and now it is practically gone. I havn't been doing anything different then go tanning. Anybody else know if there is science behind this or is it just luck?

UV light is an immunosuppressant, and is used in therapy for psoriasis. Light-induced immunosuppression is one of the postulated mechanisms for the development of skin cancer, so there are biological costs and benefits to light exposure.
