Our Herbal Therapy
Skin diseases including Atopic dermatitis and Eczema are often chronic skin conditions that are largely inherited and characterized by an overactive immune response to lifestyle or environmental triggers. The length of treatment depends on many factors: duration of the disease, family history, contact of food or environmental triggers, weather, emotion, usage of medications (steroid, immunosuppressants and antihistamines), flu, infection and vaccine etc.
We have developed a systematic herbal therapy for eczema, atopic dermatitis and many other skin disorders. This treatment has been clinically proven to be safe and effective. Treatment includes both oral herbal extracts and topical ointments. Herbs that have been selected are commonly used in Eastern herbal treatments for a variety of dermatology, allergy and asthma maladies. In fact, many scientific studies have also been established to back up their historical reputation in the above therapeutic fields. These herbs are specially selected for their ability to erase acute inflammation, eliminating toxin accumulation in the body and also to reduce the dry and itchiness of our skin. Oral herbs are great for reducing body inflammation and promoting inner balance. Topical ointment works effectively to relieve the itchiness and help skin barrier restoration.
Topical steroid and immunosuppresant rebound is also a major factor to be considered in treatment as it greatly influences the duration of the treatment. With topical steroids, a number of adverse reactions are recognised, including irritancy, change in barrier function, allergy, tolerance, dependency, rebound and lack of response (Dermatologist personal communication, 19 February 2013). The risk of an adverse effect depends on the strength of the steroid, the length of the application, the site of application and the skin problem. (Pharmac, June 2013). Immunosuppresant withdrawal very often displays similar adverse reactions to steroids. We offer progressive steroid and immunosuppresant withdrawal treatment and use our herbal formula to gradually reduce the use of steroid and immunosuppresants. We do not encourage a complete withdrawal of existing treatments overnight as the rebound effects could be severe and painful. Instead, we aim to achieve a full withdrawal of steroid and immunosuppressant usage in a given time frame (usually 1-3 months, in some rare cases it could be longer) with minimal adverse effects as possible.
