    I read an earlier post on the dark circle under the eyes. I have an 8 year old daughter who has this quite often and she also suffers with excema (skin condition) Is her body indicating a serious toxic problem or inability to remove these toxins the way they should be? Through the normal function of the liver ect...

    Thanks for your input!

    Hello Brenda,

    Most natural health care doctors think of liver problems first when they consider skin conditions.

    With your daughter having symptoms of dark circles under her eyes as well as eczema, I would think first of improving her digestion, identifying and eliminating food allergies, and supporting her liver so it can heal itself and function more efficiently.

    Please consider locating an enzyme therapy specialist close to you by calling 800-614-4400. This person is trained to help with all of the above suggestions.

    i have been suffering from major excema outbreaks on my face, throat arms and chest on and off since i was 17. I was told today after years of seeing dermatologists and physicians regarding this problem that excema is associatied with liver/enzymes etc...

    I was injured when i was 7 yrs old and had a lacerated liver which resulted in blocked bile ducts - bilirubin count problems - and i am absolutely shocked that given this fact of my medical history no professional health person has suggested this scenario to me.

    I am trying to find more information relating to this

    cause of excema and contacted the 800 number you have posted on web page, but i am Canadian and this number was an American number.

    Please let me no if you no any Canadian resources or can offer me more in understanding excema and enzymes. I also will be looking further on the web for information and am shocked and appalled that so common a problem, which affects its 'hosts' on so many different levels does not get the attention and educating it deserves.

    Thank You

    Hello Sarah,

    It is truly astounding and extremely sad more health professionals do not consider the time-honored wisdom of "looking to the liver" whenever there are skin conditions.

    I am not sure there are doctors in Canada trained as Enzyme Therapy Associates. You may wish to send an email to crupard@loomisinstitute.com. Ask if there is anyone close to you certified to evaluate your condition and guide you in a program of enzyme therapy. Health care practitioners trained by the Loomis Institute are the most knowledgable enzyme therapists you will find.

    If not, it may be worthwhile for you to consider traveling to Madison, Wisconsin, the location of the main office of Enzyme Formulations. Cheryl, at the above email address, could provide directions and recommendations.

    My daughter is 4 months pregnant with her first child. She has excema that has just come up during this pregnancy. Could the pregnancy and excema be related?

    Hello Wendy,

    Sorry, but your message did not trigger my automatic notification.

    Obviously, your daughter's pregnancy has ended by now, but the answer to your question is:

    Yes, her pregnancy and eczema could be related. There are tremendous hormonal changes during pregnancy as well as increased stresses on all the new mom's organs.

    Proper diet and supplementation is essential to make sure soon-to-be mom's have the nutrients they need to produce healthy babys and retain their own health.
