She was checked and adjusted 2 times per week. Within 4 weeks, she was 90-95% better. She continued care for two more months.

Her eczema began shortly after her mother added formula to her diet, along with breast milk. In addition to the skin condition, she also suffered from constipation. The medical intervention suggested was cortisone therapy, but the patient declined. Her mother tried homeopathic remedies, removing cowʼs milk from the diet and Diversified, Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST) and Toftness without success. Chiropractic adjustments were administered for 5 weeks, after which the eczema completely resolved.
