By Atopic Dermatitis, it is meant; a disease which affects the skin and sometimes the respiratory system also. It can affect both kids and adults. The disease manifests by an allergic or dry reddish type of rash on the skin folds on outer sides of knees and elbows depending upon the age of patient. According to western medicine, it is an allergic response to many allergenic stimuli. The skin becomes hyper sensitive and over reactive. Thereby producing either a dry or wet eczema type of response. It is thought that many infections, foods, low humidity levels all act as aggravators. Some nutritional factors also play a role.
Whereas, according to alternative medicine approach atopic dermatitis type of responses conditions are an indicator of alteration in immune reactivity, which may be strongly connected to the gut associate lymphoid tissue and skin associate lymphoid tissue. Yogic treatment of large and small intestine cleansing used extensively for balancing the gut-associated immune responses, have now been correlated to modern medicine finding also that enterotypes of inflammation in Atopic Dermatitis may be mediated by an altered Gut Flora.

Considering all these and many more facts it is possible to find a solution to seemingly complex problems like Atopic Dermatitis and skin eczemas. The solution can come by using a balanced approach combining natural yogic methods and modern medical ways as and when needed for a safe, simple solution.
