A Natural Daily Solution For Relief of Severely Dry, Itchy, Irritated Skin
Name: Ethan Vannatta
Birth Date: July 2003
Hometown: Rolesville, NC
Use: Management of Eczema Symptoms
Ethan was diagnosed with eczema when he was 8. We began our journey with over-the-counter steroids every so often. Over the next 2 years, his eczema got worse, and steroid cream became an everyday event. We began to feel uncomfortable about how much steroid cream he needed, so we turned to diet restrictions. We controlled Ethan’s diet so strictly that he was miserable.
A year later, in December 2013, we went back to the allergist who then described Ethan as severe! She asked us to start sleeping him in wet pajamas and to give him bleach baths. She also informed us about the risks of infection and hospitalization. He wore long sleeves to cover up his outbreaks and was not himself when his face flared up. Our sweet son was no longer looking at people who spoke to him and he became easily agitated due to his sore, itchy skin. I knew if we continued on this vicious cycle, the next step was anti-depressants.
I saw a video about Alayna Jones online. The symptoms and treatments her mother described were just like Ethan’s case of eczema. I was so desperate to help him and couldn’t wait to try the bath. We tried MicroSilk® at a friend’s house, and it was the first time in over 2 years that Ethan got out of the tub and did not whine about how itchy he felt. Even after a few baths, we began to see the difference. We loved the option of the wand—it made soaking his face so easy. Within the same week, we placed an order for our own MicroSilk® tub.
Life with MicroSilk
We couldn’t wait to start using the MicroSilk® bath! Before our drywall was even up, Ethan was soaking in the tub. After the installation was complete, we started two aggressive, steroid-free weeks with two baths per day. We saw major improvement! It is incredible to see the amount of toxins that are removed from his skin and how clear his skin looks from a simple bath. The wand has been an amazing tool in clearing up his face. Ethan hasn’t complained about his skin; he is eating what he likes and enjoying being a kid. His skin isn’t 100% perfect, but we have been eczema medicine-free for three weeks! MicroSilk® has been life-changing for us. It is devastating to look at old pictures of him and think where we could have ended up without this bath.
Update April 2015
Ethan is doing great with his baths. What a blessing it has been. Natural supplements have also helped and he hasn’t been on any steroid cream or allergy meds at all—and this is a boy who the doctor diagnosed as “severe”!
