It wasn't yesterday until I realize that there are people that are seriously affected by their health conditions and to keep my knowledge about natural health products that may help is selfish.
I saw a child with eczema. At the beginning, I was suspecting it is an incident of eczema based on the red patches of irritated skins. But, her mom confirmed it. For a 2.5 years old child that suffer from eczema since birth, it is so sad and triggering. I am still trying to think about how to help.
Eczema is a condition where auto-immune systems are over-reactive, creating antibodies that attack its own body cells. I am suggesting to her- taking some omega-3 fatty acids and a particular strains of probiotics that I knew helpful for the situation. I do not usually recommend medication but this situation triggers me to.
I am glad that I did. Many people know about the common health supplements such as multivitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin C and whey proteins to promote health but less of them knew the health modulation effect that other natural ingredient possessed.
I am beginning to learn the importance to also share this information to those who need it as I studied some of these ingredient's function to human. And hopefully, be able to help more people around me. That's a little something that I can contribute to the society.
