SKIN RASH PROBLEMS
Western Medicine explains that the development of itchy wheals and rashes (urticaria) are the result of an allergic reaction in which a chemical (histamine) is released from skin cells and cause fluid to leak into the skin tissue. Western Medicine understands that urticaria often results from an allergic reaction to a particular kind of food, drug, or food additive.
Treatments with Western Medicine will attempt to stop the symptoms of itching by applying calamine lotion or with antihistamine drugs. With severe cases, antibiotics or steroids are prescribed. Additionally, you will be advised to avoid certain foods to prevent future allergic reactions. The cause of urticaria in Western medicine is unknown.
Traditional Chinese Medicine understands the cause of allergies (especially from food). Allergic breakouts are the result of residual toxins in the small intestine which were not eliminated when you were born. Certain foods will excite the toxins in the small intestine and cause allergic reactions in the form of skin eruptions and a fever. Allergic skin reactions may also occur if you have very picky eating habits. When you train your body to eat only a certain variety of foods, the body will adjust when other foods are eaten resulting in allergic reactions. Germs act as scavengers and feed on waste materials and residual toxins within the body. Using antibiotics will kill the scavenger germs, but will not eliminate the underlying cause of the disease nor the toxins which feed the germs. Additionally, antibiotics will cause abnormal weight gain in children and cause damage to the heart and kidneys.
Traditional Chinese Medicine solves the problem by using herbs to increase the digestive function of the small intestine while eliminating poisons in the blood. When we change the environment in the body, we are able to eliminate the suitable habitat needed for germs to survive.
