Throughout Meghan’s life she had used some of the strongest cortisones on the market, these kept her full body eczema at bay but this came with a price.
At the age of 13 there became a point where the steroids no longer gave the results she had previously experienced, Meghans body was bright red due to dilated capillaries. Plasma leaked from her skin and the skin peeled or flaked
away, her skin did not look anything like eczema anymore, she sadly looked like a burns victim.
After visiting many dermatologists and Doctors we were just offered more steroids but nothing worked, it wasn’t until I met a Pharmacist whom is now a good friend of mine that we began hearing about Topical Steroid Addiction (T.S A.) or Red Skin Syndrome (R.S.S.).
I quickly began to research and saw hundreds of men, women and children who had symptoms just like Meghan. We immediately stopped Meghan’s steroids and within days her skin went from bad to worse, she was in full Topical Steroid withdrawal (T.S.W.) The next few months were Hell for her and all those involved with her care.
At month 4 we found the first of two miracles:- The ‘Queenbeesecrets’ balms.
These balms gave Meghan instant relief and some of the flexibility came back into her skin and the fact that these balms were all natural gave me comfort, we were done with chemicals.
I built a relationship with the owner of the ‘Queenbeesecrets’ company, whom is a very experienced aromatherapist called Diane Elliot.
Diane had not had any experience with Topical Steroid Addiction at the time but was very interested in helping the condition so, Diane got to work and created a supreme quality balm especially for Meghan which comprised of ingredients which gave Meghan incredible relief; The balm is called ‘Bee Skin Recovery’ and is blended formulae of Medical grade Manuka honey, Shea butter, Vit E, jojoba oil and more.. as it was developed especially for TSW, ‘Queenbeesecrets’ now offers the product as an aid to assist those in need (available at here at InnerbalancepH and queenbeesecrets.com.au) .
At Months 6 the second miracle happened:- ‘InnerbalancepH Bicarbonate’
I had been researching alkalising the body after talking with many naturopaths and health professionals and we knew Meghan tested highly acidic internally, so we started her on an alkalising program with a low sugar diet, no acidic foods or drinks, alkaline baths and internal alkalising.
We used the highest grade of medical/Pharmaceutical grade bicarbonate of soda. This neutralised the acid in her body and the baths calmed and controlled the many infections that were present within the dermal layers of her skin, the results were astounding.
As Meghans skin was riddled in bacterial infections which are commonly found in eczema cases and topical steroid withdrawl her skin calmed very quickly, even after the first bath. We believe that when the bad bacteria that lives on our skin is placed in an alkaline environment, they can be controlled more easily as most bacterias enjoy an acidic environment to breed in.
Meghan continued to improve daily, and after only 4 weeks her skin was clearer and thicker than it had been for years. The dilated capillaries however, did remain, leaving her skin looking pinker than the average skin however the common intense itch, flaking and peeling subsided as did the oozing and in time her pink skin faded and began to look normal again.
Meghan was able to return to school and live life like a normal happy teenager should.
Meghan still has allergies to the environment which at times makes her itchy but she uses natural supplements to control the histamine reaction, she is no longer controlled by her skin condition….
She is finally free.
