Seborrhea dermatitis


              When I was teenager I started to have dandruff on my scalp. I'm now 38 years old and I have  seborrhea dermatitisson my  face(around nose).
I have seen many dermatologist I they are confident that this is seborrhea. It usually respond to tretmant but for very short time, ...and then is back. I stooped using hydrocortisone creams because I thought maybe I'm using it to much and making my skin thiner ...(and all other side effect of hydrocortisone creams).
I started washing my face with Vichy anti -dandruff shampoo and my skin is not peeling that much but is still slighty dry and red.
I did have Hiv1/2 test many times and is negative-but ids driving me crazy knowing that this is Hiv related illness.
What can I do? Is this normal that my seborrhea is persistent and stubborn. I checked myself for neurological problems as well for lupus.
Once I had broken capillaries and I think I had co-infection with Rosacea. Why is this happening?
                                                                 Sorry for "broken" English and Thank You for answer

Hey Tanya,
I had the Seborrhea Dermatitis back when I was 27. It was a red burning rash on the cheeks of my face beside my nose. When it didn't go away I saw a dermatologist. He gave me a magic potion that made the rash go away, but as soon as I stopped using it the rash came right back.

I decided I would cure it myself, so I thought, hmmm, what have I been eating different lately. The thing I was eating different was cheese sandwiches everyday. Cheese between buttered bread. Eating cheese everyday was just too much. What you eat too much of comes out on the skin. So I stopped with the cheese everyday. I stopped eating it completely for a while. The dermatitis was gone in just a week or less. Was the acid and grease from the cheese that caused the red burning rash.

What the doctor gave me must have nuetralized the acid and cleaned the excessive oil from skin. Hope my experience will help you. Would like to hear from you on this. Please post again or email me at ***@****. I have had my share of trouble with dairy. Don't consume much anymore. Eat leafy green vegetables for the calcium. Turnip Greens, Spinach, Collard Greens, Mustard Greens. The Turnip and Collard have a pretty good taste. Stan

Hi Tanya
I think this is worth a try. Asparagus has been reported to be a very powerful medicine since at least 1739. I personally have found that a natural cure can be much more powerful than what the medical establishment has to offer. Asparagus must build the immune system. The natural strong tasting foods must have something might potent in them. Before you read all of these reports about people getting well from liquified asparagus let me share with you how my wife and I got well from kidney infections over night with blended garlic. Raw Garlic when crushed under pressure (liquidiced in blender) unlocks a strong antibiotic called Allison. This stuff isn't to be underestimated.

Lynn and I know that there are ways out there better than what the doctors tell us. I had a kidney infection back 3 years ago. Got it from drinking water in a care home where I was visiting my mother. The water had ecoli bacteria. The cipro antibiotic a doctor gave me was making me feel bad and weakened my tendons from the first day. Destroyed all the good flora in my intestines with the first pill. After 5 days on this stuff I quit it. The ecoli came back the next day. The doctors wanted me to keep taking the Cipro antibiotic for 6 weeks to see if it would get rid of the infection even though it was hurting us both. I didn't think that was a good idea.

Doctors are pretty stupid sometimes.  I only go to doctors when I need to have a test done that I don't have the equipment for at home, then I can decide how to cure myself from what they find with there equipment.

I looked on the internet and found that raw Garlic (2 cloves) when blended (liquid diced) in a cup of water or apple juice with a medium Aloe Vera leaf (liquid diced) and drank every 3 to 4 hours over a 12 hour period would kill the ecoli in the kidneys. Well I tried it. The next day the infection was completely gone and has never came back.

My wife, Lynn had the infection too. She caught it from me. She also had the flu at the same time. Now Lynn only took one garlic clove blended in one cup of water for the whole day, that's all. She's a big chicken, but she was ecoli free the next day and her flu with fever was also gone the next day.

Now see what they say about ASPARAGUS & CANCER
This was a letter that was emailed to me from a cousin.

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus  that she
pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and  4 tablespoons later in the
day. She did this for over a month. She  is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung
cancer in the pleural area and  her cancer cell count went from 386 down to
125 as of this past  week. Her oncologist said she does not need to see him
for  3 months.

THE ARTICLE: Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend
who had cancer.  He gave me a photocopied copy of an  article, entitled,
`Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News  Journal, December 1979.

I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: 'I am a biochemist, and
have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years.  

Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that
asparagus might cure cancer.

Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a
number of favorable case histories.

Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's  disease
(cancer of the lymph glands) who was  completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of
starting the asparagus  therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs
of cancer, and he  was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old who suffered  from cancer
of the bladder for 16 years. After years of  medical treatments, including
radiation without improvement, he went  on asparagus. Within 3 months,
examinations revealed that  his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his
kidneys were  normal.

Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was  put on
the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely  spread that it was
inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared  his case hopeless. On
April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy  and immediately started taking
it.  By August, x-ray  pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had
disappeared.  He is back at his regular business routine.

Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of years with  skin
cancer. She finally developed different skin cancers which  were diagnosed by
asking specialist as advanced.... Within 3 months  after starting on asparagus,
her skin specialist said that her skin  looked fine and no more skin
lesions. This woman reported that  the asparagus therapy also cure her kidney
disease, which started  in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones,
and  was receiving government disability payments for  an inoperable,
terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of  this kidney trouble
entirely to the asparagus. I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of
materia medica', edited  in 1854 by a Professor at the University of
Pennsylvania , stated that  asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney
stones. He even  referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in  
dissolving stones.

We would have other case histories but the  medical establishment has
interfered with our obtaining some of  the records. I am therefore appealing to
readers to spread this good  news and help us to gather a large number of
case histories that will  overwhelm the medical skeptics about this
unbelievably simple and  natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before  using, and therefore
canned asparagus is just as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two
leading canners of asparagus, Green Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that
these brands contain  no pesticides or preservatives. Place the cooked
asparagus in a  blender and liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator.
Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and  evening.
Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It  can be diluted
with water and used as a cold or hot drink.  This suggested dosage is based on
present experience, but certainly  larger amounts can do no harm and may be
needed in some cases. As  a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying
that `what cures can  prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been  
using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2  tablespoons
diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with  dinner. I take
mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we  have made it a practice
to have blood surveys taken as part of our  regular checkups.. The last
blood survey, taken by a medical doctor  who specializes in the nutritional
approach to health, showed  substantial improvements in all categories over the
last one, and we  can attribute these improvements to nothing but the
asparagus  drink...

It has been reported by the US National Cancer  Institute, that asparagus
is the highest tested food  containing glutathione, which is considered one
of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

Please spread the news!

The most unselfish act one can ever do is to forward all the kindness one
has received!  Stan
