Eczema-Free for Life
Rid yourself of eczema forever! Based on new research, this book has everything the millions of eczema sufferers need to know to free themselves from unbearable itching and unsightly rashes.
Eczema–Free For Life contains the latest medical information about the cause, symptoms, and treatments of eczema and is written both for adults with eczema and the parents of children with eczema. In addition to the most recent medical research, Dr. Nasir offers guidance for home care and ways to cope with the psychological impact of the disorder. None of the popular books about eczema currently on the market is written by a practicing dermatologist and none is based on up–to–date science. New research has conclusively demonstrated that eczema is the result of the abnormal development of some twenty genes responsible for controlling how the skin interacts with the environment. When the skin's barrier function fails, irritants pass through to underlying tissue and trigger the itchy rash that characterizes eczema. Dr. Nasir will explain new and more powerful treatments that are being developed based on these new discoveries as well as point out reliable holistic remedies that have worked for centuries.

Absolutely appalling that something published in 2005 claims that what you eat has nothing to do with eczema! Pathetic!
Nutrition does not have everything to do with eczema but it makes a huge difference. Many people notice huge improvements when they take Vitamin A (the skin vitamin); probiotics (heal the gut); and EFA's. In addition, food sensitivities can cause eczema flare ups - elimination of foods causing sensitivies can clear up eczema entirely.
The book mentions that children with eczema are more stressed than normal, the book states the eczema causes the stress (I agree) - - but Adnan also needs to acknowledge that stress causes flare ups as well.
