Let’s glance shortly at Eczema
What is Eczema?
Eczema is a very common condition that can be seen in all age groups, causing itching, redness and rashes on the skin. Extremely hot and cold weather in summer and winter can dry the skin and cause eczema. The most important measure against eczema is to keep the skin moist.
What Causes Eczema?
The source of eczema disease is not known exactly. Eczema, which is more common in sensitive and dry skin, can occur due to more than one factor. Cleaning products, chemicals such as perfume or some metals can cause eczema in people. Contact with some plant and animal species, exposure to too much sun and some drugs used can also cause eczema in people with sensitivities.
What are the Symptoms of Eczema?
- Drying and cracking of the skin
- Itching and redness
- Formation of blisters on the skin
- Skin crusting and flaking
- Rash and inflammation
- Dandruff of the scalp
- Where Does Eczema Occur in the Body?
Although it is mostly seen on the hands, feet and legs, eczema can occur in any part of the body. It can be seen especially in the folds of the ears, hairy areas, eyebrows, nose folds, facial skin and folds such as the groin, armpits and under the breasts.
What are the Eczema Types?
It occurs due to the reduction of the oil layer on the skin surface due to frequent washing and aging, and the drying of the skin.
It is seen starting from infancy, due to a predisposition to allergies and environmental factors. It is a repetitive type, although the symptoms tend to subside from time to time.
The reason for the formation of this type, also known as Venous Eczema, is the insufficiency of the vein system in the legs. Changes such as edema, varicose veins, increased intravascular pressure, and venous thrombus caused by this situation cause a chronic inflammation.
It can occur acutely or chronically. It occurs when the skin comes into contact with irritants and is constantly exposed to chemicals that prevent the formation of a protective oil layer.
It usually presents with itchy circular lesions in adulthood and is mostly common in the hands, arms and legs. It is a type of chronic eczema.
This type, the cause of which is unknown, usually increases in winter and spring and occurs with redness, scaling and crusting on the oily areas of the skin.
It is originated from psychological origin and increases in moments of stress.
How Is Eczema Diagnosed?
As the first step, anamnesis is taken. The cosmetics and personal care products used by the patient, detergents, soaps or other chemicals that come into contact with the skin are investigated. Physical examination of symptoms such as redness, itching, blisters or inflammation should be performed for diagnosis.
A patch test is applied when eczema is thought to be caused by an allergen. For this, patches containing different allergen substances are attached to the back area. When they are removed after 2-3 days, it is checked whether the skin gives an allergic reaction to any of them.
Skin Prick Test (SPT)
In this method, certain allergenic substances are dripped onto the front and inner surface of the arm and a scratch is created on the skin with a sterile lancet. After a while, an allergy is defined against substances that cause blisters or redness where they are instilled.
Approach to Eczema in the Rtm System
Our body is in a constant balance against internal and external factors. With this balance, life continues by developing. The RTM System includes its own diagnostic and treatment protocols. Diseases in the RTM System; It is seen as a new balance or new adjustment points created in the body in order to continue life against internal and external negative conditions.
There is a source pattern called the Triad of Disease that causes new settings to come into play in the body. This triple structure formed by Contamination in the Body, System Disorders and a code change in DNA (Epigenetics) works as follows in eczema;
Contamination in the Body: As a result of the toxins we are exposed to from the environment or the increase in metabolic activities at the cellular level, there is an increase in toxic load in the body. The removal of these toxic loads from the body is realized by the detox organs (Liver, Kidney, Lung and Skin).
Deterioration in Systems: While our skin performs its own detox function regularly, disruptions in other detox systems (liver, lung, kidney) cause an increase in the detox load on the skin. Our body is also in a state of constant renewal and change. Regeneration periods in the body also contribute to detox processes. So regeneration means a kind of detox. The regeneration periods of the skin are also in 28-day cycles. While the skin is renewed every 28 days, it works in coordination with other detox organs, kidney, liver and lung, and throws out what needs to be thrown out. If there is a deficiency in other detox organs, the skin activates additional performance to fulfill this task. At first she responds with a simple rash. For this, the speed of regeneration is increased. It is withdrawn from 28 days to 23 days. This is a reflex response. However, if toxicities and loads continue, the skin makes this job a permanent task and new settings are revealed on the skin. Then the skin gives the same response even in the slightest reaction. The result is constantly active and reddened skin. Sometimes, the toxic load may not be resolved with simple rashes. That’s when large wounds come into play and the skin regenerates faster to remove more toxins. In this case, since the regeneration in the skin will be very fast, it cannot complete itself and the tissue architecture in the relevant parts of the skin is deteriorated.
As a result of the contamination of the body and the deterioration of the detox systems, the body will reconstruct the detox processes in the problematic areas on the skin. The new settings created will be at the level of information change in the body, and this will eventually come out in the form of a code change (Epigenetic Change) in the DNA. As a result of this change in the information form, the regeneration rate of the skin will increase and it will become shorter. The picture that appears as eczema in the clinic is completely dependent on the deterioration of the infrastructure in the problematic area of the skin.
Eczema Treatment in the RTM System
The aim of the RTM System is not a suppressive treatment that directly targets the lesion on the skin. It is aimed to eliminate the Disease Triad, which is the source of the eczema we mentioned above. In the RTM System, this is called the Treatment Triad.
Treatment Triad; It includes processes aimed at initiating the detox process to return to the normal state of balance in the body, eliminating the imbalance in the failing systems and reversing the epigenetic changes in DNA. This process is planned completely individually.
The main backbone of the treatment triad is RTM Phytotherapy. The phytotherapy protocol is determined by evaluating the patient’s detailed anamnesis, laboratory and imaging findings, and measurements specific to RTM clinics. With the RTM Phytotherapy protocol, the disease triad, which is the source of the disease, is withdrawn and healing is aimed. By informing the body with the seed parts of the plants, it is aimed to normalize the epigenetic changes in DNA that determine the new adjustment constants. The treatment triad is completed by using the leafy parts of the plants, adapting the body to the normalization of the information infrastructure, accelerating the detox activities, and activating the relevant systems. With this treatment triad, which aims to revert the disease triad, it is aimed that the body will automatically return to the norm form.
Also, RTM phytotherapeutics in order to support the body and accelerate the treatment process, nearly 25 traditional medicine methods such as Ozone, Hijama, Acupuncture, Magnetic field therapy are planned according to the needs of the patient and the individual course of the disease.
