How to Eliminate ECZEMA Symptoms in 2 STEPS Instructable




 Most of us know someone who suffer eczema and I was one of them as a child. My grandad who is a chinese herbalist handed down this remedy to my mum.

I was allegic to dairy products such as milk, cheese and chocolate since the age of three. My conditions were very serious my ears,legs and arms were often very itchy and i could'nt ressist scracthing them.

 My mum did'nt want to weaken my immune systems by using antibiotics so we used Chinese remedies, these were very commonly sold in chinese medicine shops, as ready made remedy which isn't too cheap. And in this instructable we will teach you how to make this remedy that you can drink or apply as liquid to your skin to cure eczema. If your conditions are mild this will cure it whithin a week or two. But if your conditions are serious it will probably take a month or so. Drinking this remedy will also help you to prevent getting a sore throat.

Step 1: Ingredients


Can be brought in oriental supermarket!!!

:Honeysuckle flower aprox $3 1   00g  [only 50g needed]  
:Chrysanthemum aprox $3   80g
:4 litre of water FREE

:4L cooking pot

Step 2: Final Step

Use 4L of water for 12 cups of remedy. 50g Chrysanthemum Flower & 80g Honeysuckle Flower

Use 1.5L of water for 4 cups of remedy for applying on skin 17g Chrysanthemum Flower & 26g Honeysuckle Flower this should last over a month.

 Prepare your water at simmering point then pour your two ingredients in, for about 30min~45min but do not turn up the stove temperature to max, when you are finished boiling leave it to cool slightly so the skin can bear. Then pour the remedy through a sieve taking out the contents only leaving the liquid. If you intend to drink it, add honey [not sugar]. It will eliminate the bitterness. Left overs of the liquids has to be stored in the fridge, then reboiled for the next day to maintain freshness and to be reused.

While you are drinking or using this remedy do not eat or drink dairy products for it will ruin the effect of the remedy. Consume goat cheese and goat milk or soyamilk instead.

If you are applying it on your affected area. Rub it gently with cotton wool, 3 to 4 times a day. Keep this routine for 2 ~3 weeks, if condition is mild. But if the affected areas are serious apply for about a month or more, until the syptoms are gone.

This could be a very tedious routine but you can see the tremendious effects later.
You shall not regret.
It requires time and patience.

Now I try to avoid dairy products consuming goat cheese and goat milk. I am now free of eczema symptoms and when I get a slight itch in those place I use this remedy for a couple days.

    I think I have eczema on my scalp but I have not been to a dermatologist. It may be psoriasis. Could this remedy be used for that too? And what do you mean to use cotton wool? Are you talking about dipping a piece of cotton wool fabric into the liquid and just rub over the skin? What does the mixture smell like?
    I'm really sorry for all the questions but I'm just trying to research it before I try it. It may be hard for me to find these ingredients. Thank you for your time.

    Yes but be aware that when you boil the remedy some of it evaporates

    So are you saying before you drink a glass, you need to boil the amount you will be drinking before you drink it?
