19. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA):2000mg-3000mg/Day

This supplement is well known among body builders and people who are dieting, but is not so recognized among AD patients and doctors who are not knowledgeable about dietetics. Although it is made from linoleic acid, its shape is dissimilar and is often called isomerized linoleic acid. As I mentioned in the fat section, linoleic acid will use arachidonic acid to metabolize malignant eicosanoids, and our current diets contain too much linoleic acid. Even though they have the same name, conjugated linoleic acid, in fact, stops the body from metabolizing arachidonic acid, and will decrease the production of inflammatory eicosanoids.

In addition, IgG uses conjugated linoleic acid as an ingredient. IgG halts the production of IgE, which can trigger allergic reactions. Thus, this function helps AD treatment. Although this can be found in sunflower seeds, you should take these from supplements for the amount to be sufficient. This also helps to prevent obesity. You can easily buy these supplements from the internet.
Caution: People with Palmoplantar Pustulosis (PPP) should not take these supplements.

20. Supplements for reducing the effects of stress

There is nothing that worsens AD more than stress. There are many cases where patients strictly follow the diet guidelines, take the supplements, go through detoxification (which I will explain later on), and see their AD symptoms improve only to have their condition suddenly deteriorate because of an impending exam, a stressful love life, or a tragic incident. Stress is inevitable to a certain extent, but can be alleviated by using supplements. I recommend supplements such as moringa, enteric-coated lactoferrin, and Vitamin B and 2 other ones listed below.

a) Kava: This is a powder taken from the dried roots of kavakava, a plant found in the south pacific. You can find this in any big pharmacy. Stay away from tranquilizers, which have various side effects. When I used to work at a mental disease hospital, I tried out a couple of tranquilizers myself. Every single one of them made me feel strange. These pills should only be used for people with mental disorders, not for stress. However those who drink alcohol daily or have a weak liver or liver diseases should not take kava. Also, you should not take kava everyday for over a month.

b) St. John’s wort: Although slightly different from stress, people can fall into depression. This also takes away a person’s energy and resistance to diseases. Many times, it overlaps with stress. Patients who have severe AD symptoms and do not see any hope in the future can fall into this situation. These patients need psychological care, and some even voluntarily ask for help. However, things may get worse if you go to a bad counselor. St. John’s wort, which can be found in any pharmacy, will lighten and enhance your mood. However, this mood enhancement does not come as excitement, but more as a sense of natural strength and energy. You must use this for 4 weeks until you feel an effect. Although St. John’s wort does not have any side effects, it can make your body sensitive to light, so you should avoid sunbathing after you take this. Also, consult you pharmacist whether you should take this supplement if you are also taking antiepileptic drugs, cardiotonics (digoxin), bronchiodilators (theophylline), antiocoagulants (warfarin), or immunosuppressants (ciclosporin).
