Scleroderma or hard skin occurs due to an abnormal accumulation of collagen in the skin. It is a connective tissue disease which causes skin changes and comes to affect blood vessels, muscles and internal organs. It is an autoimmune disorder, meaning that the immune system mistakenly attacks the skin by destroying the healthy body tissue.
As in any condition, it is best to start a real cure rather than resorting with pharmaceutical drugs, which only block the ability of the body to heal itself. Anti-inflammatory drugs and chemicals only force the body to respond artificially and should be used only in very special cases where the disease is far advanced, and only as support of a deep natural cure.
Naturists professionals know that there are no diseases, but a body saturated with toxins which has broken its natural balance due to neglect and bad habits, both physical and mental. The real cure of any condition will start in purging the body, so it is recommended that these people follow a deep cleansing diet.
It is dieting for three days eating only pineapple, grapes or oranges. Choose only one fruit and eat all you want, along with two liters of pure water. To make the diet you should choose a few quiet days, like a weekend.
After the diet, you should start introducing quality food and little by little. For example, you can start the day with some citrus and then breakfast grains such as oats, etc. The meal can be vegetable soups and salads.
Avoid at all costs the following foods which are actually harmful to the restructuring of health:
Flours and refined sugars contain no nutritional value and only clog the intestines, weakening their functions as well as damaging the immune and nervous system. Also, avoid all animal meats, excess salt, irritants such as alcohol and vinegar, and all fried and processed foods.
What we recommend you include in your diet:
Whole grains, milk and vegetable oil, citrus fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, spirulina algae and fish.
After the third day of diet, include these foods slowly. You should avoid excess protein, if you eat red meat; do it once or twice a week, trying to accompany this dish with salad.
Avoid combining fruits with other foods; eat them alone, on an empty stomach and wait 30 minutes before eating anything else. This will help to an efficient digestion and make better use of nutrients from the foods you eat. Sugary drinks and fruit must not be taken with meals. While eating, drink a glass of warm water or carrot juice with aloe or alfalfa.
Sprouts are rich in enzymes which are good for the body's metabolic functions.
In addition to this diet, we recommend you exercise. Practice something you enjoy to make your circulatory system irrigate oxygen and nutrients to every part of your body, strengthening the immune system and balancing the other systems. The practice of Yoga or Tai Chi will also help balance your mind and emotions.
