Multiple scientific studies now support the role of vitamin D in preventing and controlling eczema. Reviewing around a dozen studies and meta analyses looking at vitamin D functions in skin physiology, for example, Qatari research published in 2018 found mounting evidence that vitamin D may help improve inflammatory symptoms in conditions such as eczema. This finding is further supported by a randomized controlled trial published in 2020, which showed that supplementation with vitamin D reduced symptoms of severe eczema in children.
But eczema is far from being the only skin condition that can be prevented and controlled through nutritional approaches. When treated using a combination of micronutrients based on Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking Cellular Medicine approach, even skin diseases such as severe psoriasis have shown dramatic improvement. Awareness of the effectiveness of natural therapies for skin problems should give hope to millions of patients worldwide.
