44 – All about eczema with Luka and Kate


Eczema can be such a debilitating condition for both the child suffering and the whole family, so today we unpack a little about eczema from a holistic perspective and some things to consider to help understand the drivers and work towards resolving the condition.

For those who are tuning in for the first time, a little about us…

  • Luka McCabe – founder of Boob to Food, author of Milk to Meals, registered nurse and midwife, as well as mum of 3

  • Kate Holm – naturopath, nutritionist,  clinical director of Boob to Food and mum of 3

In this podcast we discuss

  • What is eczema
  • What causes some kids to get eczema and not others and how it is diagnosed
  • Why eczema is more than just a skin condition and the other areas of health we should be supporting
  • Our thoughts on steroid creams, elimination diets and other common treatments
  • Introducing allergens to a baby with eczema
  • and so much more…
