I learn more about skin conditions from my customers than from any other source.
I received this email from Mary over the weekend:
At the end of November 2012 my husband was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease at the age of 57. One the things the lead to the start of the tests was the condition of his hands. They were cracked and painful and had been for over a year. Nothing helped. He had been on several topical prescriptions and tried every hand cream and ointment you can imagine and nothing improved the condition of his hands.
I found your site while wandering around the internet looking at information about Celiac’s disease and gluten. I ordered 2 bars of Bee Silk. When I gave them to my husband I did get kind of an eye roll because when you have truly tried everything you get a little tired of it. Well, the next evening he mentioned his hand did feel better. He continued to use the bar and his hands continued to improve. After about 2 weeks he had a doctor’s appointment and they ended up talking about his hands. His Doc keep going back to his hands and asking “What are you using” “What is it made of” “What is the website”.
We were recently on vacation and he tells the story about his hands and this amazing bar to many people. It feels like a miracle to have it his hands back. While we were traveling he only had a sliver of the first bar and the full second bar and he took suchgood care of those 2 items. They were irreplaceable.
It has been about 2 months now and my husband is making his own lotion bars.
Thank you for your wonderful product and your kindness in telling people what is in it and how you make it.
A person with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, so he or she must search for gluten-free foods. Eating gluten would cause them damage in their small intestine, and symptoms can include diarrhea (or constipation), joint pain or brain fog. Outwardly, a person with celiac disease could have an itchy rash known as dermatitis, like Mary's husband. The ultimate treatment would be to eliminate gluten from your diet completely, and this includes your skin care products.
