Jason and Lorraine. In 2016 we sold most of our belongings and left the city in southern California to start a small homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. We left the city in search for a more minimal and intentional life. We became passionate about growing our own food and knowing what exactly is in our food after I (Jason) became diagnosed with cancer. Now 8 years in remission we as a family are on a journey to live our passions.
We document our life on UZpost videos to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and not be afraid of change. We started our own online general store where we have available the things we make and use in real life. Thank you for following us on this incredible life changing journey!

I remember you saying you had a history of cancer but I don't remember what kind. Some lymphomas can present with skin rashes. If you haven't already, may be worth checking in with your oncologist just in case.

I had major skin inflammation / burning/ rashes when I showered too... We had mold in our plumbing lines. Even with a shower filter was so horrific.. I feel your pain. I too am a cancer survivor. Test your water for glyphosate too.... but its very possible your water is contaminated. Get rid of all corn on your property and mold...I will pray for you!!

Have they checked you for lupus? Cutaneous lupus can cause skin’s certainly sounds like a autoimmune problem though. Good luck!

There is extensive independent research (anecdotal) suggesting a predominately carnivorous diet could help with this very issue. Look up Dr. Paul Saladino (MD). Radical stuff!!

Jason, you might try witch hazel compresses great for any skin irritation, like sunburns too or burning / itchy insect bites very cooling and soothing it might give you relief i used it after i got cut up on pampas grass it helped with the burning, painful cuts and inflamation. Maybe loraine can make you a witch hazel cream?

Totally sounds like systemic Mastocytosis. I can sympathize with you because I have CRPS and it causes my skin to feel like it’s on fire. 24/7 for the past 6 yrs. 😫 You will be in my thoughts. 😊

Praying for you all, sweet friends. Skin issues, especially systemic ones, can be so painful. I know you all have much more homeopathic knowledge than I, so I’m sure Lorraine is looking into everything. I know it hurts when you see your beloved one suffering like that, I’m so sorry. My kids, especially Davis, have had a lot of chronic skin issues. CeraVe cream or Vanicream (creams, not lotions) with some squalane oil (the vegan kind made from sugar cane and not shark) and topped with an occlusive could possibly help. The new company Pipette has a baby balm that has squalane in it and I’m excited to try it in our house. I haven’t tried their unscented body wash yet, but we will. They are having a 40% off sale right now. I like their mineral sunscreen. We generally all use fragrance free Aquaphor Baby wash. We use CeraVe facial cleansers, I use the hydrating one, everyone else uses the foaming one. When we need steroid creams, our allergist has prescribed desonide cream (we like the cream form and not the ointment.) You might look up wet wrapping for eczema- National Jewish Hospital in Colorado did have great instructions on it. It can really help. Davis can’t live with all of the itching unless he takes daily Zyrtec. (He doesn’t deal with that painful burning much that Jason described, though.) I know you may already know all this stuff, but just in case any of it is helpful, I’m throwing it all out there.

Here are few tips which might help: cold water showers, it will take the pain away at least for a moment, and it calms the skin. Fish oil capsules if not allergic to fish. I don't know how the weather is like in your place, but here in Finland in winter time temperature and humidity changes make many people's skins feel bad.

It looks like the skin lupus. A friend of mine had it she went to the Mayo clinic and they treated her with towels soaked in vinegar water and they changed the rags very often throughout the day. And was in the rags more than she wasn't in the rags.she did get better. It was a horrible experience. Praying for your healing.

Praying for healing! When our bodies hurt and just aren't working the way they are supposed to, it's so hard to stay positive and to find the motivation to move forward. I'm sure you have looked into GAPS, you wouldn't have to change your diet much. The healing I found through it has been life changing!

This may not help you. But it may help someone reading. About 3 years ago I got a full blood test to test for all possible allergies. I was feeling run down. So I did the tests. Docs told me among other items I was allergic to, I was highly allergic to coffee. I didn't even know there was such a thing. I loved coffee but I quit drinking it. Within a month my eczema/ psoriasis on my arm was gone. Sucks not having coffee but tea fills the void and doesn't cause flair ups to come back.

Sometimes when you immune system is in hyper mode . You do not want to do things that hype it up. Things that boost immunity are not good during flares. No probiotics, astragulas ect. Less of everything. Even the oils you use could be to much. No scented things. Even things that are natural are,problematic. One ingredient living. All foods brought down to a few things. Shae butter

Thank you for your bravery in sharing your story. It is inspiring and helpful. Please be sure to head advice about the “gut”, if you have not already. I started focusing on my gut more in-depth and started taking a “quality” probiotic to balance my flora and it gave me relief from something’s that were puzzling me. Blessings for a smooth healing.

Oh Iam so so sorry to hear about your skin flare up 😢. In Australia we have a product that it’s made in Queensland from paw paw it’s helped so many Australian with skin problems and burns, and it’s all natural. It’s made by “ real MacArthur products “ and I’ve seen documentaries on it. It might be worth giving it a go.

Jason, I am sorry that this “monster” has returned with a vengeance. I am glad you are listening to your body. Your story is relevant and inspirational. Your words and use of camera shows your anguish and frustration. When you tell your story verbally and visually it takes your audience on that journey. I hope when you are well enough you consider diving into your complete medical journey, your early days in So.Cal. (Born and raised in San Gabriel Valley myself), starting a different way of living and making the big move that brought you to this place in life. I watch a few other homestead UZpost vlogs and your talent for story telling is superior. Lorraine is wonderful and I enjoy her sharing her “mad” skills. I never knew about grinding grains before she showed it. Soooo from one former So.Cal native to another, keep inspiring others to see that they can change and find a life on the road less traveled (not like the 5, 210, 60 or the 10

I know you have probably heard of everything and all comments are overwhelming but have you tried switching to organic cotton bed sheets and underclothes at least what touches main organs. I’m so sorry you are going through this. My husband has large patches all over his scalp and forehead and on his leg. It flairs up with radiation like WiFi. Also we watched so many alternative medicine videos which was also helpful. My prayers go out to you all. I’m again so sorry it’s gotten so bad.

Eczema is not really a skin issue per say...Finding a good Naturopathic doctor would help. My daughter had "eczema' and the 1st thing she was told to do is go through a good herbal LIVER CLEANSE. This started her quickly on her road to healing after she tried everything. Have you done a cleanse since your cancer treatments years ago?

Lorraine, I hate to ask this because I know you probably already thought about it. I noticed Jason’s skin issues are worse under his shirt and stuff. I also know that cold dry weather is extremely hard on our skin so anything that might bother it will be so much worse at this time of year. I also know that you (were/are) making your own detergent for your clothes. Is there any thing you might have changed in your recipe from the recipe you were making last winter? His skin might have been able to coupe with any changes this summer but not this winter. Just a thought. You both are in my prayers and hope you find the solution soon.

I have eczema and a lot of food allergies and asthma. That is my diagnosis. What I have learned is that when it’s winter cold outside and when I stop being in the sun as much, I have flare ups. At my worst I would wake up stuck in the sheets because I have been scratching at night and my eczema would ooze fluids and blood and it would dry up while I slept. It was so frustrating and I was so depressed. My bloodwork was ok, but I was low on vitamin D. And then it clicked. In the summer I was ok, the flare ups were not as bad and my skin healed to some extent. But then winter came and I had bad flare ups again. So I started to experiment with vitamin D supplements. I take 2000iu of vitamin D everyday, that changed the world for me. I do take multivitamin and vitamin C. I have mini flare ups and those are food related and go away when I stop eating that. I have not had bad eczema in 2 years, what I have now is so minor that I almost don’t notice it. I hope and pray you will find answers on your journey towards health 🙏🏻❤️
