The Cure for Eczema and Hand Dyshidrosis: Replace Processed Sugar by Eating Whole Fruits, Get Rid of Metals, Consume Chlorella, Sweat a Lot, Become a New Person

It costs nothing but a lifestyle change.

For you to be taking the time to read this article, chances are you or someone who is close to you has suffered for years from the skin condition known as eczema.  Of course, after visiting at least a few doctors and/or skin specialists, the answer was that there is no cure.  Then a topical lotion was prescribed to “help keep things under control”.  But there is a cure that I had to discover the hard way, and thank God for it.

Make note that I am in no way a medical doctor.  And that’s a good thing.  Because the doctors say there is no cure.  But I say there is.  And I’ve been cured of eczema, specifically dyshidrosis.

I will make no money by telling you the cure.  You will not buy a book from me, nor will you subscribe to website that costs you any money.  You will simply read what I have to say and apply it to your life.

My hand a few months before it got really bad.

This is a very cut-and-dry issue.  It works if you do it.  It doesn’t work if you don’t, or if you cheat yourself by not fully committing.

If you are desperate enough to be healed, like I was, you will be willing to change your lifestyle.  And that’s what this will cost you- your lifestyle.  But not your life.

How to Be Cured of Eczema

1)     Completely cut out sugar from your diet, except for fruits in their whole form.  That means no fruit juice.  That means no yogurt (which is loaded with sugar.)  Instead, eat at least three servings of fruit everyday: bananas, oranges, apples, and grapes are the easiest and cheapest way to go.  You need the healthy sugar from the fruit with the fiber from the fruit.

This is the exact cilantro/chlorella extract I used.

2)     Completely cut out unnecessary metals from your body.  If you have metal fillings in your teeth, get them taken out.  (I even had to switch to a ceramic wedding ring.) If you have cartilage piercings, remove them.  Stop eating shellfish (shrimp, scallops, lobster, etc.), which have high levels of heavy metals.


3)     Sweat as much as possible.  If you have access to a sauna, take advantage of it.  If not, do plenty of outdoor exercise.  If nothing else, sunbathe.  Sweat helps remove the toxins from your body that sustain the eczema.

4)     Eat lots of chlorella (seaweed extract) and cilantro.  These both help your body to extract the poisons in your body that feed the eczema.  I bought mine in concentrated liquid form from Whole Foods.

5)     Read these other articles I’ve written which explain more about why the first four steps are so important:

The Shell Diet

healthnutshell: The Unholy Trinity of Food

healthnutshell: A Tablespoon of Sugar or a Cigarette

healthnutshell: No Pork on My Fork

You should start seeing results by the third week.  It took me about seven months for my body to be fully removed of my eczema.  And if you go back to your old lifestyle, (not following my 5 steps) your eczema will return.  You have been chosen to live a different lifestyle; you have to accept it.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or stories you have for me.  Remember, I’m not a doctor.  Just someone who’s been where you are and wants this good news of hope to be spread.  There is a cure.

  1. Thank you for this amazing article. I have been suffering with Eczema exactly the same as shown in your picture. It’s also on y feet and I am now having difficulty walking. I have been searching for an answer for 2 years and 3 Dermatologists later I’m in worse shape than ever before. I have a metal root filled tooth (from 20 years ago) which I am going to have removed ASAP.

    The advice you give here is invaluable and I will follow strictly in the hope of getting my life back to normal. Thanks again – I hope you are still well and clear of Eczema.



    • Paul, you’re welcome. And I want you to keep me posted on this works for you, which I know it will. I truly believe you are ready to make the necessary changes in your life to be healed of this disease. Mine only comes back if I begin to stray from The Shell Diet. Feel free to ask me any other questions you come up with along the way. -Nick Shell


  2. Thank you!!!!! I just bought chlorella tablets from Source Naturals. I hope pill form is just as effective. I also put my daughter on oil of oregano (wild oregano). Did you get worse before you got better? Right now she thinks it is spreading/. I think it may be die off symptoms


  3. thanks for ur article but i didnt understand what should i eat every day??
    you dont write it…
    anyway i eat only whole food, veg and fruits for 6 monthes and i dont have any change in my body or soul. i also take omega3, oregano oil, chlorela and more “good stuff”.
    unfortuently i let go my old life style and got nothing in return.
    any suggestions??


  4. Dear friend, After suffering from horrendous, humiliating eczema for 37 long years… scratching myself to the point of bleeding while living in constant fear and paranoia of what others might think about the nasty red eruptions all over my skin…I accidentally stumbled upon 3 simple little steps that to my amazement:Read more here!


  5. I do have Pompholyx Dyshidrosis but I only have it reoccurring on my right pinky finger no where else and it has been about 4 years now usually every 6-7 months. Do you still recommend the same steps for my situation even though I do not have a severe case of it? I would love some help with this it is so distracting in my life, thank you :-/


  6. I never had this problem until two months ago. After seeing a dermatologist he prescribed me with fluocinonide and told me to use cerave cream several times a day. I felt confident this was the answer and cure. Wrong. Since then it has only gotten worse. Now its all on my palms, the sides and tops of my fingers and thumbs and I’m completely miserable. I think now is the time to focus on what I’m putting into my body. Hopefully, I will have positive results in a few months…. I’m getting married in november and I just want my life back.


  7. I will surely be book-marking this blog. Of all of the blogs I have
    run into, yours is the only one with information and facts that is
    reliable and helpful. Are you gonna be posting more articles like this or is this the final one?


  8. Hi Nick!

    Thanks so much for posting this. I have been struggling with Dyshidrosis since I was about 20. I am in no way a doctor or an expert, but I just want to offer up what worked for me. I had tried a few of the things you list here (including changing my diet to exclude refined/processed sugar and all high-metal-content foods and upping my workout regimen). I unfortunately didn’t notice any changes–I would still get flareups, it still felt out of control.

    I didn’t find a cure until a doctor abroad told me to stop using soap.

    While I can’t stop using soap completely (my hygienic needs declare it to be so!), I have stopped using it for the most part, and for the most part use only a soap-free mild cleanser when necessary (after going to the bathroom, before preparing food, etc.). One additional key: making sure I dry off my hands afterward!

    Using a mild lotion in tandem, to heal myself back up to normality (this is the only lotion I’ve found that doesn’t also irritate my skin:, I noticed an amazing improvement, and I was “cured” for months.

    I have had a few flareups since then–I did the dishes w/o gloves, then found out the hard way that cutting up some veggies, like potatoes and onions, causes an immediate flare-up–but I now know I’ll have to pay if I decide to do those activities w/o gloves on.

    Like I said, I’m no expert, but if anyone is frustrated with dyshidrosis on his/her hands, try going soap-free and gloved for activities like handling food or washing dishes for a while and see what happens! It really changed my life.


  9. I came down with eczema over a year ago (I am age 65) and to no avail all the med doctors could do was prescibe meds whichmade me worse since I am also diabetic. I did the 4 steps above which cleared about 80 % of the eczema. However; I also found out that the fish oil I was taking (last 5 yrs) was full of metal and was contributing to my eczema. a month after I stopped my eczema cleared up to 90 %. My prob lem is trying to stay away from every food that is bad and cheating daily . My biggest problems is breads or tortillas even though limited. The eczema returns and it takes me another 2 – 3 weeks to control the eczema. I write everything down but being a diabetic limits me considerably. Any suggestions to improve your plan


  10. i’m worried about changing my lifestyle and i’ve tried part of it and i only scratch a little bit less but i hope it well soon work {:~(


  11. Hello,
    Thanks for sharing your experience. I was just wondering if you are still free from eczema breakouts? I have been trying to fight my dyshidrosis with little success for three years and at the moment I am thinking of giving a heavy metal detox a try…


  12. How odd. I cut out all processed sugars about 3 months ago & have been extremely strict about it. About 4 weeks ago I have developed very bad hand eczema. I don’t think this cure above will work for everybody – but fantastic that it worked for you!
