Free Sample of Renew Lotion

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

There aren’t a lot of creams and lotions, other than those with steroids, that really make a difference in eczema. Renew is one of them. It made a difference in my son’s eczema within two days.

And I am offering free samples! I have a few travel-sized tubes that I can mail out to anyone in the US that requests a sample. I won’t even charge for the shipping. Why? Because once someone sent me a sample, and I want to pass on the favor.

I can’t promise it will cure your eczema. It might. I know people who no longer have eczema since using Renew. But it might make a difference. And if you have a baby with eczema, you know how wonderful it would be to have something to help so that you don’t need to use as much steroid cream.

How can you get some? Send me your name and address to lisa [at] mybabyhaseczema.com and be sure to mention this offer for a free sample. That’s it. I won’t add your name to a mailing list or anything like that. I will reply and let you know I’m sending it. And if you like it, I’ll be happy to tell you how you can get more.

My supply is limited, so please respond asap. Any requests I get this weekend will be mailed out Monday or Tuesday.

My Baby Has Eczema: Trying Natural Methods Again

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Last week I shared about how we found a new doctor when we moved and eventually started using the steroid Triamcinalon. Once the pediatrician had exhausted his store of resources, and after a couple visits to an allergist proved that we were already doing everything conventional medicine had to offer, we decided to try a naturopath recommended by the pediatrician.

Dr. Dramov in Tigard

Dr. Dramov has got to be one of the nicest doctors I have ever met. Unlike your average MDs, he greets his patients in the waiting room and goes with them through every step of the visit. If he has an assistant other than the receptionist, I haven’t seen one. He acted like he has all day, asking me several times per visit if there is anything else I want to ask–very thorough.

During the first visit, he went over Manny’s history of eczema and asked what we were giving him. Then he asked me to try several things: upping the probiotics he was already taking, adding quercitin, switching from the digestive enzyme we were using to one with ox bile in it, and adding in evening primrose oil. We were to make one change per week, and to not add the next thing if we noticed improvement.

Well, we did our best, but nothing made the slightest difference. I had gotten him to where I was using the Triamcinalon only every other day most of the time, but I couldn’t taper off more than that. He would just get worse if I tried.

B12 Shots and a New Probiotic

At the next visit, he told me that he had just been to some kind of medical convention to learn more about the treatment of eczema. He said there were two things that seemed to help that we weren’t already doing: B12 supplements, either sublingual or shots, and a special probiotic called InfaSkin. He had ordered the InfaSkin, but it hadn’t arrived yet. My husband picked it up later.

He asked me how I wanted to do then B12. Because I wasn’t sure how well the sublinguals would work on such a small child (by this time he was just weeks away from his second birthday), I opted for the shots. He showed me how to give them, doing the first one himself. Then he sold me the tiny vial of serum and enough insulin syringes to last a month. I bought a sharps container at the drug store, and have since gotten so good at them that my son actually likes his daily shot!

It was almost two weeks after that visit that my husband was able to stop and get the InfaSkin probiotics. We started him on them on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Within two days, I knew they were doing something; I hadn’t reached for the Triamcinalon since his first dose! In fact, he was able to go 4 or 5 days without it–his longest stretch ever! I still used the hydrocortisone 2.5%, but I was actually using less of it. As you can imagine, I was thrilled! This was the first non-drug anything to actually make a difference!

Further Tests

At this second visit, the doctor also ordered stool and blood tests. We will get the results of those tests at our next visit, which will be next Friday

A couple of weeks after starting the Infaskin, I received samples of Renew lotion. Rather than repeat myself, I’ll just refer you to the post that tells what results Renew had on my son.

This brings the story up-to-date. I will continue to post updates as they occur. Now it’s your turn. Would you like to share your story? If so, please contact me; I would love to publish others’ stories here on this blog.

Does Melaleuca’s Renew Really Help Eczema?

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

If you can’t watch the video, the long and short of it is that yes, it did help my son. We use it twice a day, and his skin is softer, and I have been able to almost cut out the Triamcinalon and cut back significantly on the hydrocortisone (often using the 1% instead of the prescription-strength 2.5%). I had been using Eucerin cream before I started the Renew, and it never worked nearly as effectively.

Here is more information that I didn’t include in the video itself.

About two weeks before we started using Renew, we were also using the probiotic  InfaSkin. Since starting the InfaSkin, he had been showing improvement in how often and severely he broke out, but the Renew lotion took it a step further. Combined, they have been helping him tremendously.

In the clinical studies done on Renew, it was found to be 7 times more effective at helping the skin retain moisture than Eucerin! I can testify to that–my son’s skin is soft almost all the time now, with just two applications a day.

My son’s doctors are convinced that the cause of his eczema is internal, not external. That is, there appears to be irritation or something in the gut that is causing the reaction on the skin. We are waiting for test results to confirm this and identify the causative factors more specifically. So I never really expected the Renew to clear him up as much as it might do for some. For those who have external factors as the cause of eczema, it is possible that Renew alone could be all they need.

Renew is different from Eucerin in that it contains what is commonly known as tea tree oil. This oil has antiseptic qualities. I have heard of using bleach baths to kill germs on the skin. Renew would apparently do something similar, without the potentially harmful effects of bleach, which is a toxic chemical.

I wish I had mentioned this in the video, but the Renew actually seems to calm the itch to an extent. Once I noticed my son scratching his shin during a diaper change, so I rubbed a little dab of onto the spot. He pointed to his other shin and grunted, and was very pleased when I put a dab on there too! He never was that happy about Eucerin.

If you found this page because someone told you about Renew and you wanted to know if it really works, I recommend that you get back with them to find out how you can get some. On the other hand, if you don’t know of anyone who promotes Melaleuca’s products and would like to try some, please contact me at lisa [at] mybabyhaseczema [dot] com. I will be happy to explain how it works and get you set up to order some.

Disclaimer: I am now a Marketing Executive for Melaleuca. However, I made my analysis on the effectiveness of Renew by using samples sent to me before I signed up with Melaleuca; it was the fact that Renew worked that convinced me to sign up. Even if I had not signed up with them, I would have still highly recommended this lotion!
