Abstract

The purpose for the eczema meal plans is to provide eczema patients with meal plans that are proven to reduce inflammation. Overall this will benefit patients by adding another method to contain their eczema and to also make their life with eczema comfortable. My motivation for my project is that I have had eczema all my life with which I still suffer today. A significant problem with eczema is that there is no cure for the skin condition. Another method of reducing inflammation will help eczema patients have another option to contain their eczema until some kind of cure is found. The project is made from hours of research on specific foods that are proven to reduce inflammation. Some examples would be some fruit and fatty fish, these types of foods contain certain minerals that are anti-inflammatories; Fatty fish have omega-3 fatty acids while fruits like blueberries contain quercetin both which are anti-inflammatories. With these foods meal plans are made containing foods like blueberries and fatty fish. These meal plans provide 3 meals a day with the option of vegan, vegetarian, and simple omnivore diets. Results found on these meal plans is that they are effective in helping contain eczema however it is recommended for patients to continue applying any kind of lotions or oils to their skin for their eczema.
