Mangosteen is the cure for viral Eczema!

In all honesty, when I started this blog I did not think I would find a simple cure for eczema. Well after 3 years, I am happy to say I have.

Before I go into this, I am looking for work as a sales person selling this cure should anyone wish to commercialise and do some product development on Mangosteen pericarp (peel, skin) as a cure for eczema.

If you are getting the signs of eczema, ie the itching, the minute cracking, the viral nodes etc than follow the procedure below. Do this as long as you are showing signs of eczema. Note that you will likely have to do a second application about two (2) days after the first application to destroy any left over viral nodes. Also be aware that the number of applications you perform is contingent on the severity of your infection. The longer you have had it, the more likely the therapy will take longer.

You should also experiment with applying the mangosteen so that you get the most economy out of it. It is very effective but in Malaysia can be quite expensive. Of course if the cost is a problem, you can use tea for general application (i.e sit in a strong dark tea bath for over a hour) and than apply the mangosteen to the worse affected areas.

1. Obtain fresh and clean mangosteen peel. This is the best. If you cannot get fresh peel, dried peel is ok but does not seem to be as effective. I believe that this may be a result of some loss of sugars or something connected with the live fruit itself. The Mangosteen peel can be kept in an air tight container in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator for some time. Its effectiveness remains high but still not as great as when fresh, but significantly better than the dried version.

Fresh mangosteen pericarp is soft compared to dried mangosteen peel. The skin can be pushed in with slight pressure from your fingers.

Be careful of choosing mangosteens as there is a fungus that can get into the mangosteen. While not dangerous if consumed, it does have an awful smell!

2. Wash the mangosteen peel thorougly, inside and out with tap water.

3. Using a mortar and pestle (we use a large stone one which turns most roots into paste quite readily), pound the mangosteen peel thoroughly. Keep pounding the mangosteen peel until it is all turned into a brown, purple paste.

4. Apply paste to infected area. Leave on infected area for at least 1 hour. The longer it is on, the better.

I recommend mangosteen and tea therapy for children as it is a cure and does not hurt the child at all. The child will not feel pain. One of my earlier treatments was to use a concentrated sea salt , table salt and tea bath. This was effective but was very painful for my daughter as the salt would hurt her private areas. Consequently, i just started using strong tea which turned out to be just a effective !
