6. What causes AD? (A) Take Omega 3

To permanently cure Atopic Dermatitis, it is important to eat more vegetables and fruit and avoid foods that contain lots of protein and arachidonic acid, such as beef, pork, mutton, and chicken, and foods that use oils that contain lots of linoleic acid, such as safflower oil, sunflower oil, corn oil, soybean oil, and canola oil. Instead of sauteing foods, try boiling them.

Also, you should try to increase your intake of omega 3 unsaturated fatty acids so that the ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 (ω3:ω6) becomes close to 1:2~3. By doing that, you increase the amount of benign eicosanoids and can cure not on AD, but you can also cure and prevent many diseases, including cancer.

α-linolenic acid, and substances that are metabolized from it such as EPA and DHA, can be taken from fish with blue backs.
However, at my clinic, in order to ensure that each person gets enough α-linolenic acid, I recommend patients to take flax seeds since fish these days have the danger of containing hazardous heavy metals such as mercury due to marine pollution. The 2 to 3 tablespoons of flax, organically grown in Canada, is powderized using a coffee mill, and can be mixed in juice (apple or pineapple) or put on a salad. Those who do not have a coffee mill can chew and eat it, but this is not recommended; the seeds are small and the skin is pretty hard, so much of the flax can be still in its seed form, in which case it will not have any effect. Also, when you powderize flax seeds, eat it as soon as possible. Do not powderize 2 to 3 days worth of flax seeds since they will oxidize quickly.

For those who do not want to powderize the flax seeds, there is already expressed flax seed oil. 2 to 3 tablespoons per day is enough. Also, there are supplements that are soft gel capsules and contain flax seed oil. There is usually 1000 mg of oil in 1 capsule, and you should take 2 to 3 capsules per day. Although taking flax seed oil capsules is more convenient, powderized flax seed is better. Flax seed powder contains Lignan (which helps prevent tumors) and fiber, while the oil does not. Also, Chia, a grain grown in South America, contains more omega 3 unsaturated fatty acids compared to flax seeds. A soft gel capsule containing oil from this grain can also be found on the internet.

Flax seeds should not be taken with other vitamins and mineral supplements since it contains a lot of fiber. You should wait around 3 hours between taking the two. If taken together, the fibers will tangle with the vitamins and minerals, and will be put out of the body. If you are taking the flax seed oil, you do not have to worry about this.

Also, if taking flax seed, flax seed oil, chia, or chia seed oil, you should take Vitamin E, selenium, or CoQ10 (but preferably all of them) to prevent oxidation in the body. You are, however, not required to do this; dieticians do not agree upon this issue, and there is no definite answer at this point. Just to be safe, if you are willing to spend the money, I recommend buying antioxidation supplements such as Vitamin E.

Another reason why I do not recommend getting omega 3 α-linolenic acid through blue fish such as mackerel, saury, sardine, and tuna is because, other than marine pollution which I mentioned before, these fish contain histidine, an essential amino acid that produces histamines, which causes itchy skin. AD patients who have extremely itchy skin should not eat these fish before their symptoms get better, but if the symptoms do not get worse, they can continue eating fish. It is better than eating beef, ham, sausages, or cheese. As AD gets better, patients should notice that they do not itch even if they eat fish.

Also, when sauteing food, use olive oil, which is type omega 9. Omega 3 oils oxidize quickly, and should never be used in cooking. Omega 9 oils do not affect eicosanoid emergence; in other words, olive oil will not produce malignant or benign eicosanoids. Also, use flax seed oil or Japanese basil oil for salad dressing, and do not use mayonnaise or normal salad dressings.
