Eczema - A Problem of the Acid Mantel

It's official - Eczema is not an immune disease, but a problem of the integrity of the skin's Acid Mantel. According to media reports, a dermatologist finally figured out that the problem with eczema is not the body's immune system, but (as members of alternative medical profession have stated for many decades), it is due to a lack of integrity of the skin's Acid Mantel.

So what is this Acid Mantel?

The pores of our skin are made up of a combination of oil and sweat glands (sebaceous and sudoriferous glands) helping to keep our skin healthy and elastic. When in balance, the combined excretion of oil and sweat from the skin’s pores has a pH of about 5.5.

This slightly acidic layer, is referred to as the “Acid Mantel”, and it is our body’s first defence mechanism against bacteria invading it. The Acid Mantel is not a favourable environment for bacterial growth to occur. This defence layer develops at puberty, which is why children are more susceptible to disease, viruses and fungal infections such are ringworm and Eczema. The pH of children’s skin is closer to neutral (pH 7).

At puberty, however, we start to produce more hair on our bodies. Hair follicles have an associated sebaceous gland or glands which become active as hair growth increases, causing changes in the skin’s pH. The hormones that control sweat also become active, and the whole surface of a teenager’s skin is totally different to that of a young child. This is our body’s way to increase our defence system.

If this process does not develop fully, or we keep removing the Acid Mantel through the use of soaps, the protection of the skin is compromised and the results are potential problems with the skin, such as developing eczema.

Importance of the skin's pH: Do's & Don'ts

One of the major culprits that radically alter the pH of the skin, is soap. Ordinary, commercially available soaps are highly alkaline (pH range 9-11) and raise the skin’s pH to be much more alkaline. In addition, this destroyes the Acid Mantel leaving the skin vulnerable to microbial attack.

Other factors influencing your skin's pH

Another factor that helps in regulating your skin’s pH is the presents of microflora on your skin. Staphylococcus epidermis is involved in the breakdown of fatty acids, and is therefore partly responsible for the acidic pH of skin. The use of ordinary soap, not only changes the pH of the skin to be more alkaline, effectively removing the protective acid mantle, but also kills the bacteria responsible for creating, at least in part, the acidic pH of your skin – a double whammy.

How to Support Your Acid Mantel and Protect Your Skin

To protect your skin's defence machanisms, including the Acid Mantel, it is important to follow a daily skin care regime. This is not just for important for women, men too have to protect their skin.

So here are the basic steps to follow:

  1. Use a pH neutral soap to wash your skin. This includes washing of your hands. Many people, wash their hands many times a day with soaps that even include anti-bacterial chemicals which destroy and kill all the bacteria of the skin, including the good ones. This destroys the protective Acid Mantel and allows 'bad' microbs to flurish.
  2. Use a loofah to remove dead layers of skin. This promotes new, healthy skin cell growth and promotes blood circulation to the superficial layers of the skin.
  3. Follow a daily skin care regime of Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising. You can read a detailed description of how to implement a daily skin care regime Here.
  4. For skin other than facial skin, use a natural all-over body moisturiser. Also, instead of soap, you can use an Exfoliating skin wash such as our Skin Renewal Gel.

Your skin is an asset worth protecting - your health depends on it.

How To Use Essential Oils Part 1: What Do Different Essential Oils Do?

We hear and read much about the benefits of Aromatherapy and the use of essential oils, however, rarely do we find out how and what essential oils can be used, or for which purpose. What are their properties? How can they be used and what forms/medium should they be used in?

This series of articles is designed to help answer some of these questions surrounding essential oils and give helpful information, hints and tips on how to use essential oils safely and effectively around the home.

The first article in this series is devoted to the properties of essential oils. Unless we know what they are good for, how can we make use of them?

Words of Caution.

The essential oils below are generally safe if used correctly. Do be careful however when using Tea tree, Peppermint, or Eucalyptus oil. They can be irritating to the skin. Remember in general you should never use essential oils undiluted.

I have left out a considerable number of  essential oils such as Wintergreen, Black pepper and others, because some of them can cause serious burns and injury if used inappropriately or incorrectly.

The essential oils that are listed, however, still require your attention and caution. Make sure you always dilute them before applying them to the skin, avoid the eyes and do not take them internally.

The properties listed above are by no means exhaustive, however, this is not meant to be a course on medical Aromatherapy rather it is an introduction to how essential oils may be used in everyday life and some minor ailments.

Now we have established a starting base. We now know what properties the different essential oils have and what they can be used for.

As you read through the list of properties, you have probably noticed that several of the essential oils occur in more than one category. This will help in the selection process later on. For now, it is important just to recognise that the different oils have several properties for application.

For example, lets look at Lavender oil, which has the following properties:

Analgesic, anti-bacterial, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, diuretic, expectorant, sedative and immuno-tonic.

These properties, when viewed as a whole, provide insight into the type of situations in which Lavender may be useful. It is these properties that are the key indicators for its selection under different circumstances.

For example, Lavender is well known for its ability to help in facilitating sleep. When we look its list of properties, which includes, carminative and sedative, we can see how this is possible.

Similarly, Lavender is great to treat minor and moderate burns. Again looking at its properties we can see that it is analgesic (pain relieving), anti-bacterial (prevents secondary bacterial infection), anti-inflammatory (reduces inflammation), antiseptic (destroys or inhibits the growth of bacteria and other micro-organisms), carminative (has a calming effect on the person), diuretic (relieves excessive fluid build up), and sedative (helps the patient to relax). Clearly, these are the type of properties that are useful in a case of sunburn or similar burn to the skin.

As is evident from the above example, knowing the properties of essential oils is the key to understanding how and when to use them.

The next article in this series will deal with how to use essential oils in different media such as water, base-oils, air, etc. Before we can make a choice of which essential oils to use, we need to know and understand how the essential oil(s) will be applied. This is because some essential oils such as Lavender, for example, can be directly applied to the skin, however, Peppermint, Lemon and others are not ideal for direct application and will need to be applied via a medium such as a water bath, cream, or together with a base/carrier oil such as Apricot or Almond.

Lemon - An Amazingly Powerful and Underestimated Fruit

We use Lemons almost daily, either in the form of Lemon juice, Lemon essence in our cooking, Lemon bleech, or Lemon in our detergents, some of us may even use lemon in our salads. Yet very few people are aware of the powerful health effects Lemons contain.

The essential oil from Lemons is a very powerful substance and applications range from being one of the most powerful Anti-septics to being an amazing Anti-depressent. However, this is by no means the end of its usefulness.

Some of its other uses include:

Anti-Microbial and Anti-Inflammatory: Malaria, Dysentery, Diarrhoea, Typhoid, Intestinal parasites (Oxyuris); Asthma, Bronchitis, Influenza, Pneumonia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis; Head colds, Sinusitis, Sore throat, Tonsillitis, Otitis, Gingivitis, Inflammations of the mouth and tongue.

Cardio-Vascular System / Circulatory System: Varicose veins, Phlebitis, Capillary fragility, Hyperviscosity of the blood, Arteriosclerosis, Anaemia, Venous tonic.

Nervous System: Depression, Hypertension, Migraine.

Urogential System: Urinary and gall stones.

Gastrointestinal Tract: Debility, Loss of appetite, Ascites, Gastric hyperacidity, Stomach ulcers, Gastritis, Dyspepsia, Aerophagy, Jaundice, Vomiting, Hepatic and pancreatic deficiency, Hepatic congestion, Meteorism, Flatulence.

Musculo-skeletal System / Muscles, Bones & Joints: Rheumatism, Arthritis, Gout.

Integumentary System (Skin, Nails and Hair): Skin and Beauty care, Eruptions, Boils, Cellulite, Minor skin conditions, Verrucas, Warts, Herpes, Chilblains, Infected and putrid wounds, Insect bites, Tinea, Scabies, Facial seborrhoea, Freckles, Prevention of wrinkles, Hand care, Brittle nails, Tender feet.

Nutritive: Scurvy, Mineral deficiencies.

Quite impressive, don't you think? Yet, we use Lemons far too infrequently to get the benefit from them. Maybe we should start thinking about how we could introduce more Lemon into our daily life and into our diet.

For example, we could use Lemon juice in our salad dressing, use a slice or two when cooking a steak, add the juice of a Lemon to one liter of water. There are countless ways we can integrate Lemons into our daily foods and drinks and get much more of the many benefits Lemons have to offer.

Here are some recipies to get you started:


Lemon squash

8 cups sugar (less if you don't want it to be very sweet)
10 cups boiling water
4 cups lemon juice
25 ml lemon essence
1/2 teaspoon sodium bisulphate

Dissolve the sugar in the water; add the rest in a plastic bucket, stirring with a wooden spoon (must not be metal). Strain it and bottle. Keeps well, and is best made in September when the lemons are at their sweetest.

Lemon marmalade

1 pint water
1 lemon
1 pound sugar

Cut the lemon thinly and soak overnight. Boil it until tender, then add sugar. Boil until it jells, when a skin forms on the top. Bottle it!

Lemon Ice

Simply juice the lemons and pour it into ice cube trays and freeze. If keeping for a long time, put in a plastic bag and keep in the freezer, then drop a cube into a glass of water as desired. If you like lots of tang, zesting the lemon peel and adding that to the juice can increase the flavour.

A-1 Zesty Lemon Steak

Ingredients:

1/3 cup A-1 Steak Sauce
2 tsp grated lemon peel
1 x clove garlic minced
1/4 tsp coarsley ground black pepper
4 x (4-6 oz.) beef shell or strip steaks about 1" thick

Method:
In samll bowl, combine steak sauce, lemon peel, garlic and pepper; brush on both sides of steaks. Grill steaks over Medium heat for 15 minutes on each side or until done, brushing with sauce occasionally. Serve immediately.

Artichokes with Egg and Lemon Sauce

Ingredients:

The classic Greek sauce, avgolemono, is a great low-fat alternative to the melted butter, mayonnaise or vinaigrette dipping sauces usually served with artichokes.

Method:
Snap the stems off four large artichokes and trim the bases so that they will sit upright on a plate. Boil a potful of water to which you have added the juice of a lemon and a pinch of salt. Drop the artichokes in and boil for 30 minutes or until they are tender. Test by pulling off an outer leaf and trying the flesh at the base for tenderness.

Meanwhile, in another saucepan, bring a cup of chicken stock to the boil. In a cup, mix about two-thirds of a tablespoon of cornflour with a little water until it is smooth and add to the boiling stock, stirring until it thickens.

Separate 3 eggs, beat the whites until they hold stiff peaks, then add the yolks and continue beating tin the whole mass is fluffy.

Still beating, add the juice of a lemon and pour in the boiling stock. Pour this mixture back into the stock saucepan, and stir it over a low heat for a couple of minutes. It must not boil.

Place the artichokes in the centre of warmed plates and pour the avgolemono over them. Serve.

Italian Vegetarian Pasta Dish

Ingredients:

1 tsp Olive oil
2 x cloves garlic peel & mince
1/2 cup Dry white wine
1/4 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed
1 cup Chopped tomato
4 oz angel hair pasta spinach
4 oz Angel hair pasta semolina
1/4 cup Chopped fresh basil
2 tbl Parmesan cheese freshly grated
Ground black pepper to taste

Method:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and maintain at a boil.

Put the olive oil and garlic in a saute' pan and cook over medium heat just
until the garlic begins to brown. Remove the saute' pan from the heat and pour in the wine. Return it to the heat. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes,
until the wine has been reduced by half. Stir in the lemon juice and tomato. Remove the pan from the heat.

Place the pasta in the boiling water and cook to desired doneness, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain the pasta and put it into a warm serving bowl.

Add the basil, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper, along with the tomato mixture. Toss and serve immediately.

Lemon Butter

180 gms (6 oz.) chopped butter
2 cups castor sugar
3/4 cup lemon juice (use fresh lemons, not preserved juice)
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
4 eggs, beaten and strained

Combine all ingredients in top half of double saucepan or in a HEATPROOF bowl. Stir CONSTANTLY over simmering water until mixture thickly coats the back of a wooden spoon. Pour into hot, sterilized jars.

Seal when cool.

Variation:
Replace 1/3 cup lemon juice with lime juice and use lime rind.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes Serves: approximately 3 cups

Going Nuts?

Nuts are nutrient-dense and most of their fat is unsaturated, which means it's good for you. They are also perhaps the best natural source of vitamin E and have relatively concentrated stores of dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium, and arginine, the dietary precursor of nitric oxide.

Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, chestnuts, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts are all nuts that are packed full of beneficial nutrients for good health. Enjoying nuts regularly as part of a healthy diet has been shown to protect the heart and may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Eating nuts in moderation can have benefits for weight control and nuts naturally contain a broad range of important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phytochemicals.

Of course we are talking about un-salted nuts here. We are already consuming far more salt in our diet than is good for us, so we don't need to make this any worse by eating salted nuts. And we are also not talking about roasted nuts either.

Eat nuts regularly

Health authorities around the world recommend eating more plant foods for good health. This is because plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds provide protection against many of the common lifestyle related issues seen today. The traditional Mediterranean way of eating, which includes plenty of plant foods, is considered to be one of the healthiest in the world! People of the Mediterranean, include nuts daily in the diet.

Why should nuts be part of a healthy diet?

Healthy fats

Just because nuts are high in fat doesn’t mean they are unhealthy. Nuts are a great source of the 'good fats' - monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats - which are essential for regulating blood cholesterol.

  • Nuts high in monounsaturated fats include macadamias, cashews, almonds, pistachios, and pecans.
  • Nuts high in polyunsaturated fats include walnuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts and Brazil nuts.

Fibre

All nuts contribute fibre to the diet and eating foods rich in fibre, especially soluble fibre, helps to satisfy hunger for longer. Dietary fibre helps to lower blood cholesterol and is essential for healthy bowel function.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect tissues in the body from damage. An average serve (30g) of mixed nuts provides approx. 20% of the recommended daily requirements.

Folate

Folate is a B vitamin associated with heart health, cancer protection and a lower risk of birth defects in newborn babies. Hazelnuts, chestnuts, cashews, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts provide some folate.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral essential for good nerve and muscle function and for strong bones. An average serve (30g) of Brazil nuts, almonds and cashews provides more than 75% of the recommended dietary intake for magnesium.

Zinc

Zinc is needed for many processes in the body and is necessary for a strong immune system, and healing and protecting the skin. A third of a cup of cashews, almonds or pecans provides more than 15% of your recommended daily intake.

Selenium

Selenium is essential for a well functioning immune system and thyroid gland and it also helps protect cells in the body from damage. Brazil nuts are particularly rich in selenium with just two nuts providing all of your daily requirements!

Other natural phytochemicals

Antioxidants

Antioxidants found in nuts include flavonoids and a compound called luteolin. These substances help slow down the aging process and help protect the body from a range of lifestyle related diseases.

Arginine

Arginine is an amino acid or building block of protein that helps keep blood vessels healthy. Sources of arginine include almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts and pistachios.

Plant sterols

Tree nuts contain plant sterols, substances that reduce cholesterol absorption from the gut. Pistachios, cashews, almonds and pecans provide plant sterols.

So, there you have it, going nuts is healthy and it tastes great too.

Wildcrafted's Natural Skin Care Newsletter - Back Issues

Kitty's Corner

Kitty

Hi I'm Kitty, I hope you enjoyed the last column and managed to dry your cat's eyes.

This month we are going to look at your pet's weight.

As we are hearing every day in the media, obesity is one of Australia's biggest health issues for our owners. Well, this is not just something that's affecting you pet owners, we pets are getting bigger all the time as well. In fact, 25-30% of us are overweight.

I know, you just can't resist those eyes of ours, and you want us to live a life of luxury - and after all we do deserve those special treats. And of course, we love every yummy morsel you give us.

The problem though is that if we don't get enough exercise, these treats and extra feeds will cause us to develop conditions such as arthritis, pancreatitis, heart disease and diabetes (especially in us cats). Now you don't want to do that to us, do you?!

Well, here are some guidelines as to how you can determine if we are getting a little on the chubby side:

* If your pooch or kitty-cat is within the ideal weight range, you should be able to feel each of the ribs as you run your fingers along the ribcage.

* We should also have a waste! Just have a look while standing over your beloved pet and see if you can actually notice a well defined waistline.

* Now some of us kitty-cats can actually develop a 'beer gut', boy, you don't want to do that to us sleek and slender mini-tigers, do you? - No, of course not.

Just like humans, we too benefit from a regular exercise regime and depending on your cat, you can devise a variety of play-activities to make us loose those extra kilos. Throwing a bouncy ball, or a game involving a string and similar toys can get our heart rate jumping and make us want to catch these things.

Dogs will be more easily exercised, hey just take them for a walk. They'll follow you anywhere, unlike us kitty-cats.

We cats, however, are hunters after all and catching things is fun. Your dog's too love chasing things such as sticks and tennis balls and you can give them a heap of exercise in your backyard just by playing with them for a little while each day. After all we like the input you give us too and we'll love you even more for the time you spend with us.

Until next moth, a hearty Miau from me
