Eczema – Natural Remedies and Link to Gut Health

Eczema is a chronic and irritating problem for many people. It’s a type of inflammation of the skin called dermatitis that causes redness, scaling, swelling, itching and bleeding. An estimated 35 million Americans suffer from one form or another of the condition. Seventy percent of cases develop in children prior to age five and over half of infants who have eczema will continue to have symptoms into adulthood. There are three forms; atopic, contact and seborrhoic dermatitis. The latter, seborrhoic dermatitis is also known as cradle crap or dandruff, causing dry or oily scaling of the scalp. Contact dermatitis is the result of contact with different types of allergens and irritants found in creams, foods, plants and some metals. Atopic dermatitis is the result of allergies like hay fever and typically makes itself known at an early age on the face, scalp, neck, inside elbows and behind the knees.

There are several triggers of eczema, including what’s happening in the digestive system. Infants who are bottle fed are more likely to develop eczema as they are not getting enough essential fatty acids that they would receive from breast milk. Other people have trouble converting linoleic acid to anti-inflammatory hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Much research is now being done on the connection between gut health, emotions and skin. Emotional stress results in a depletion of digestive enzymes and digestive and skin issues emerge. Or in cases of “leaky gut syndrome” the intestines become porous allowing bits of undigested food to enter the bloodstream which can cause allergic reactions. Candida, a form of yeast is also linked to skin irritations such as eczema.

So what to do if you are suffering from a form of eczema? We’ve got some suggestions for you including things to avoid and foods to eat. . .

Re:iimmune

Hydration is extremely important when it comes to maintaining a healthy intestinal tract. The L-Glutamine in our intestinal support formula works to rebuild the delicate tissue of the intestinal lining, while ginger aids in decreasing inflammation and zinc which benefits the skin’s ability to heal. re:iimmune also combines a variety of probiotic strains as well as one essential prebiotic which acts as food for the probiotics to thrive. These probiotics allow the body to produce the beneficial bacteria your digestive system needs to function properly.

Get the right nutrients in your diet

A diet rich in essential fatty acids, zinc, Vitamins A and B6, and beta-carotene is key. Some good choices are bananas, bone broths, potatoes, sweet potatoes, green onions, buckwheat, rice milk and mung beans.

Back on my A Game!

Why Wednesday

 

vivian_whywednesday“As a hairstylist and make-up artist, I spend most of my days on my feet rushing around, and I rarely have a chance to even slow down long enough to take a drink of water or eat a full meal. I love my job, and I am passionate about creating art with my clients, but the toll it takes on my body is unavoidable. Days when I’m feeling especially run down, dehydrated and fatigued, one glass of re:iimmune will put me right back on my A game. When my husband has clients in town, his job is to entertain them, so after a long day of work when the only thing my body wants me to do is relax and recuperate, re:iimmune gives me the refreshment and stamina to socialize without winding up sick the next day!”

-Vivian Conway

Although re:iimmune® was originally created specifically with illness recovery in mind, the truth is, re:iimmune® is a recovery product on a much broader spectrum than just “illness”! Whether you sit at a desk all day and struggle with stress headaches and a poor diet, you travel for a living and find it challenging to maintain optimal hydration and nutritional levels, or possibly you’ve even chosen a career as the operations manager of your own household- folding laundry, preparing meals, wiping runny noses and changing dirty diapers- all these tasks make it difficult to remember your allotted glasses of water for that day, much less time to squeeze in three full, nutritious meals. Whatever your responsibilities may be, re:iimmune® helps fill in the gaps that result from a busy lifestyle and often times leave you lacking the essentials your body requires most to maintain a strong immune system and healthy stamina.

Dehydration alone can cause a myriad of unpleasant symptoms that will leave your body and mind dragging behind. Just a few of it’s most common side affects range from headaches, migraines, and muscle cramps- to brain fog, irritability and fatigue- in other words, dehydration can dramatically slow you down and reduce productivity. When your digestive system isn’t being fed the proper nutrients it needs in order to grow the healthy bacteria that lines your intestinal wall and keeps everything functioning properly, it begins to break down. In turn this affects everything from your immune system (in fact, 75% of your immune system is found in the digestive tract), to your state of mind and ability to perform daily tasks. re:iimmune®’s Hydrobiotic™ formula combines Clinical Strength Hydration™ with a potent blend of pre and probiotics that aid in balancing out your gut health. If you feel like you need a little boost to get you back on your A game, re:iimmune® may be just what you need to get better, better!™ With it’s easily transportable packaging, all you need to do is keep a few packets of re:iimmune®’s dry powder mix in your purse or pockets, and reach for one the next time you start to feel yourself fading. Before you know it you’ll be back on your feet and ready to take on the next challenge that comes your way!

Strength, Bravery & a Dash of re:iimmune®

Why Wednesday

“I was first introduAngie_WhyFinishedced to re:iimmune by a friend, when I was feeling under the weather one day. Back in 2009 I had gastric bypass (weight loss) surgery. I have kept off about 80 pounds of that weight loss. One thing that weight loss surgery patients must be very attune to, is their hydration levels. Some who have had this type of surgery can dehydrate faster than the average person, and it can be much more dangerous, sometimes even sending people to the hospital for days of re-hydration I.V.’s. Living in the great state of Texas where summer temperatures easily reach over a hundred degrees for several days in a row, I must stay acutely aware of my water intake. Any time I feel like I’m not quite there with my hydration, or I’m feeling tired, I just drink a re:iimmune and in about 30 minutes, I feel completely refreshed and recharged.  I feel so glad that I was made aware of this wonderful product and I always keep a box on hand. I’ve recommended it to friends as well!  While I may not be the type of consumer using this product for a more serious medical issue, I think it’s good to get the word out that this is extremely useful for the “average” consumer; i.e., after having been out in the heat all day, etc.  Everybody needs re:iimmune.
Thanks for creating this great product!” -Angie M.

It takes bravery and strength to take a life altering step as drastic as gastric bypass surgery, it also takes strength and determination to recover from the operation itself. Dehydration and poor nutrient absorption are two of the most common and detrimental complications associated with bariatric surgery. Not only is your body healing from the trauma of surgery itself, but your stomach has a much smaller capacity to retain fluids and adequate amounts of necessary nutrition. This scenario affects everything from your body’s ability to heal itself, and the health of your digestive system as a whole. As the stomach works on healing itself and getting use to its new form, nausea is often an ever present side effect, making it even more of a challenge to eat and drink enough to heal properly.

As Angie explains, re:iimmune® is a great addition to your recovery if you’re considering, or have already scheduled a bariatric procedure, or any surgery for that matter. With its Clinical Strength Hydration™ that helps you maintain a reasonable hydration level, even when experiencing low liquid intake, essential nutrients to aid in gut health recovery, and ginger root to soothe nausea- re:iimmune® may just make your journey a little bit smoother! Angie is right though, you don’t need to have undergone invasive surgery, or struggled through a serious illness in order to benefit from re:iimmune®’s Hydrobiotic™ formula. Mid-day slumps are often a product of dehydration, a bogged down digestive system, brain fog, headaches and muscle cramps… these are all reasons to drink a re:iimmune®. As soon as you start to feel run down- grab a re:iimmune® Hydrobiotic™ and get better, better™!

Why You Need a Prebiotic

But Wait There’s More…

ingrediant_stock

It seems as though ingredient lists keep growing in length on the backs of boxes that we pick up in the grocery store, littered with words containing too many syllables and disguised names. We have all heard disturbing stories detailing the gory process most of our food endures before it hits our plates, and then there’s the gobs of sugars, fake coloring’s, toxins and harmful chemicals a number of our over the counter medicines are sneaking into our system. In a world where “Hydroxytoluene” is a real and unfriendly chemical found in most of our pantries, it’s nice to know there’s a product on the market that wants you to know the ins and outs of each ingredient it contains and why they’re good for you.

When Dr. Kerri Miller set out to create re:iimmune®, she approached it with one goal in mind: to help Make People Better. Every single ingredient in re:iimmune® serves a purpose and was considered carefully for it’s quality and purity. That’s why we’d like to take you deeper into the story behind our ingredient list by dedicating a series of blogs to the “more”. More transparency from us, more education for you, and more value than just hydration and probiotics. Hydrobiotic® is the hot, new advancement that combines Clinical Strength Hydration® with  probiotics. re:iimmune® then takes this concept and uses it as the foundation for an even more powerful formula with many moving parts. We’ll call this; Part One.

If you’ve had an antibiotic prescribed to you within the last few years, you’ve probably been suggested by your healthcare provider to also take a probiotic in order to relieve the potential digestive unbalance a run of antibiotics typically leaves your body struggling with. Probiotics alone are a tricky concept, each body responds differently to different strains of these live cultures. That’s why it’s important to choose a product that has several, diverse probiotic strains that cover a broad spectrum, BUT did you know that probiotics require a special type of food to survive and populate all the way through your intestinal tract? This food is called a prebiotic and there are several different sources and forms of this nondigestible food ingredient that promotes the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines.

Just as it is the case with probiotics, there are several naturally accuring food sources that contain prebiotics. For instance, prebiotics are naturally occurring in: garlic, chicory root, raw asparagus, almonds, raw onion, and raw leeks. The prebiotic chosen to pair with re:iimmune®’s 14 strain probiotic blend is derived from organic agave plants, and is a fructan called Agave Inulin. To speak technically for a moment, this prebiotic is a short chain fatty acid that is not digestible, which means it does not increase the amount of glucose or insulin in the blood, making it direimuneabout2abetic friendly. This particular prebiotic is special because it remains viable as it makes its way through the entire digestive tract, all the while feeding the good bacteria that your gut needs to balance itself out and keep you healthy.

 

Fun Fact: Dr. Kerri Miller the founder of Make People Better and creator of re:iimmune® harvested our agave herself and here’s a picture to prove it!

We’ve just begun the journey of exposing re:iimmune® for what it really is, so stay tuned, share this blog if you found it interesting, and get better, better™!

 

Who has time to be sick?

Why Wednesday

Ask aStacy_WhyWednesdaynyone of a certain age and they’ll tell you that there is fine line between a full life and pure chaos. With three kids, two jobs, one housing company, plus family, friends, and all the other stuff- our life is undeniably both awesome and crazy. I re:iimmune to keep things from tipping in favor of crazy. My immune system is the barometer for how busy things have been. Too many obligations, too little self-care, and I’ll catch any illness that comes along. re:iimmune and sleep have become my go-to power duo for halting sickness. As soon as I feel the warning signs—tired body, scratchy throat, aching head—I’ll drink a glass of re:iimmune and go to bed. By helping to keep me healthy, re:iimmune acts as a time management resource. There are really organized women, true pros at balancing it all- I don’t count myself among them. But any day where I manage to accomplish the things that matter is a good day. I’m grateful to re:iimmune for helping me to keep trying.  – Stacy Jurado-Miller

 

Let’s face it; we live in a hectic, responsibility laden society with too little time and too many commitments to fit into our tight schedules. Bustling families, business opportunities, school schedules and social commitments are the things that make up most of our lives. With packed schedules and full plates, who has time to be sick? Answer: NOBODY! As rewarding as a full schedule is, it becomes a bit daunting to maintain a healthy lifestyle on top of everything else going on. Our culture is more health conscious now more than it has ever been. There are hundreds of books on gut health, detox plans, aisles upon aisles of vitamins and supplements, conferences and seminars dedicated to developing a healthy lifestyle, and not to mention, about a thousand friends chirping their own health revelations spattering your social media news-feeds with their own latest health revelations. The amount of content circulating would leave your head spinning and your hand reaching for a handful of potato chips simply out of despair.

 

Of course we encourage you to figure out a healthy routine, rest when you can, and listen to your body when it’s asking you to slow down. Find out what works for you and your body, whether it’s simply making yourself trade Photo of ambitious trainee overwhelmed by job dutiesin a side of fries for a cup of fruit with your next cheeseburger, or following a strict plant based vegan diet. The important thing is to make changes that are realistic for you and your family. A simple way to take your first step towards p
rotecting your schedule and your health at the same time is to reach for your immune boosting Hydrobiotic™ formula. The Clinical Strength Hydration
™ formula you find in a Hydrobiotic™ acts like gasoline to an engine that’s running on fumes, hydration is one of the most foremost components of a strong im
mune system.

If you feel like your world is spinning faster than you can turn, and your body’s starting to throw you some warning signs, it’s time to pick up a box of re:iimmune® and get better, better™!
