Question 1: Why did my doctor suggest I take BLEACH BATHS?
Answer 1: Probably because your skin looked like it was getting infected from deep scratching and open lesions. We have to forgive ourselves and our medical practitioners. They were trying their best with the information they had at that time. Medicine evolves.
Question 2: I thought all bacteria was the enemy and my job was to kill 99.9999% of bacteria – so what happened?
Answer 2: The science of discovering GUT bacteria came along in the last 15 years and that changed everything in medicine. We now are trying to study our internal flora, our gut bacteria as an organ in of itself! And our skin microbiome as another organ. We are made with more bacteria than we have DNA cells! So yes, bacteria are a living part of us that we are at the doorstep of where quantum physics was upon discovery.
Question 3: Was bleach bad all along?
Question 3: It may have served a purpose, however the current research does clearly project that protecting our diversity in microorganisms may be serve our overall health far more than trying to kill off the bacteria.
So let’s focus on the body’s amazing healing power instead of the sense of remorse that question brings now that the current science proves our skin microbiome needed to diversify instead of nuclear bomb it? Let’s stay positive and rejoice in the body’s natural healing ability and commit to detoxing and replenishing the good bacteria.
Question 4: What else can I soak in to gain some relief?
Answer 4: Mineral Salts like those of ELAJ Salteral that are loaded with Dead Sea Salts, Magnesium, Zinc, Epsom, Honey Powder, and Algae Powder. They have been incredible for helping those with full body flare-ups and itching spells. They also work as an exfoliation scrub onto skin that is not compromised, but rather those plaque areas from psoriasis and lichenified skin. ELAJ Salteral can be found at www.ELAJnatural.com.
Another alternative is Apple Cider Vinegar. The gentlest of all is adding colloidal oatmeal to a bath. Be careful with essential oils as they may be too harsh. You can experiment with the most minute concentrations, a little at a time, and test your tolerance level and benefit.
