Scleroderma, also known as systemic sclerosis, is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease characterized by hardening (sclero) of the skin (derma). In the more severe form, it also affects internal organs. As with all autoimmune disorders it takes major failures in several systems throughout your body to produce an autoimmune disease. Most of the time these systems fail from exposure to toxins in our food, toxins in the environment, vaccinations, antibiotics, and/or medications. By correcting the underlying issues in the nervous system which are negatively affecting the immune system, detoxing the body, and strengthening the immune system you can prevent and even reverse autoimmune diseases.
You may have been exposed to vaccinations, antibiotics, toxins, and possibly many medications over the years, the first step to healing is always detoxing your body because all of these can negatively affect your organ systems and especially the nervous system. Start by switching to an organic, plant based diet with lots of healthy fats like coconut oil and olive oil. You’ll also want to avoid any packaged or processed food as well as any meats because these are loaded with toxins which directly affect the health and quality of your body. Here’s a video that explains all the dietary and lifestyle changes necessary for optimal health and healing:
After you get your body functioning optimally it’ll be time to detox. Here’s a video all about detoxing:
Since scleroderma generally affects the skin I recommend addressing any underlying issues that may hinder the healing process for your skin. First of all, skin health starts with the digestive system. If you’ve been exposed to antibiotics, vaccinations, medications, and/or processed food, your digestive system may have a hard time breaking down and absorbing proteins that are used to build new skin. Detoxing and juice fasting are excellent ways to start correcting any digestive issues, however, you might need to take a betaine-HCL supplement in order to assist in the breakdown of proteins.
As for supplements: Make sure that you’re getting plenty of minerals especially, zinc, selenium, and sulfur by supplementing accordingly. Also, Vitamin D is extremely vital for skin health so it’s important to supplement accordingly. UV light therapy can also be beneficial but be careful about the type of lights you use because some can be extremely harmful to your skin.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is also extremely beneficial for healing and detoxing, in fact it’s used to cure many different types of cancer. Soaking in a baking soda bath for at least 30 minutes will help draw out toxins from your body and your skin will be able to absorb the baking soda transdermally which will then go into your bloodstream and throughout your body. Keep this in mind whenever you use lotion or products on your skin because almost anything you put on your skin can be absorbed into your bloodstream. So avoid toxic lotions, sunscreens, and moisturizers. Coconut oil used as a moisturizer will be fantastic for skin health and it’s a great alternative to lotion. Coconut oil will also provide healthy fat to rebuild skin tissue and will be absorbed into the bloodstream to positively affect the body in many other ways.
