FruitarianGirl replied to lilfrenchie's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)I have heard that Manuka honey works wonders for Lupus scalp rashes which are similar. Manuka honey reduces inflamation and kills bacteria, fungus and parasites. It is actually used in surgery in New Zealand. Apparently it kills micro-organisms by sticking to them and removing the moisture from them until they die. Therefore, it is effective on bacteria that is resistant to medication. It penetrates deep into the tissues and is so anti-inflamatory that if you have a swollen joint, for example, it will absorb throught the skin and target the swelling deep within. Try Comvita 100% Active Manuka Honey New Zealand Wound Management UMF 18+. It's on Amazon (search by "Comvita Wound Care"). They also have their own site (combvita.com). For more information about Manuka Honey watch this youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M30lbs1nw3s or see the website manukahoneyusa.com. If you use coconut oil, be sure to use virgin coconut oil. The best I know of is Tropical Traditions (tropicaltraditions.com). On their website they also provide information about virgin coconut oil in general. Virgin coconut oil is another miracle food that is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-inflammatory. To find it on amazon search by "tropical traditions 16 oz gold label"
