If you have ever suffered with eczema, I don’t have to tell you how incredibly itchy and irritating eczema is. Until recently I had only suffered a mild form of eczema, but lately, it has progressed to a more severe form, complete with eczema blisters.
I find my legs and shoulders especially itchy, to the point where I cannot help but scratch until my skin bleeds. This often makes my rash even worse, which leads to more inflammation and, even more, itching. It soon becomes a vicious, itch –>scratch –>itch–>scratch, cycle that is very difficult to break.
I have tried different creams, some of which worked well, especially the topical cortisone cream. However, because of the steroids in that cream, I really would rather not be relying, long-term on it and have searched for an alternate treatment.
As a nurse, I know that anti-inflammatory drugs are used in the local treatment of inflammation or the general treatment of inflammatory diseases. They do not act on the cause of the inflammation.
I stumbled upon the benefits of hazelwood, somewhat by accident, while browsing eczema treatments. After doing a bit of research, I learned that hazelwood is very rich in polyphenols, molecules known for their antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, providing natural relief for skin problems.
I was impressed to learn that hazelwood is a natural healing product and has been used by Native Americans for centuries for its medicinal properties. Pure Hazelwood products are made of 100% natural hazelwood from the Canadian Boreal forest
I was also very interested in learning that in addition to eczema, hazelwood is also useful in helping to manage:
- Heartburn and Gastroesophageal reflux disease
- Mouth ulcers
I also really like that unlike taking anti-inflammatory drugs, like corticosteroids, aspirin or ibuprofen, wearing wood jewelry apparently has no contraindications or side effects.
I had nothing to lose, so I ordered a Pure Hazlewood bracelet and have worn it for a little more than two weeks. I am happy to report that while I still have a bit of eczema, the overall the itch –>scratch –>itch–>scratch, cycle has reduced dramatically. I am hopeful that wearing the bracelet will eventually eliminate the eczema completely.
