With The Eczema Expert Rebecca Bonneteau
JTG #43 Eczema in Babies & Children With Naturopath & Eczema Expert Rebecca Bonneteau
Fact: 1 in 4 children has eczema, but the great news is Rebecca Bonneteau decided to do something about it. In this episode of the Journey To Glow podcast we talk to The Eczema Expert Rebecca Bonneteau about managing eczema in babies & children.
About our guest:
Rebecca Bonneteau N.D. was born with chronic eczema and after spending many years learning how to support her body so she could take control of her condition naturally she now focuses her work helping others do the same. She wants to make sure that no child grows up thinking that they can’t take control of their eczema.
She has set out to, first and foremost, support parents who are trying to move away from the reliance on medication. The path to taking control of eczema is not a short one, making support the number one thing you need on this journey so her priority was to set up a network of parents who all wanted to learn and support one another.

1. “We need to shift our thinking when it comes to skin issues to realize our body is actually working, doing its job moving excess toxins and trying to heal.”
2. “It’s important to shift our thinking from beating ourselves up for having skin issues and instead, learn to ask: what is my skin trying to say?”
3. “Learn to work with the body instead of suppressing it.”
