Use fruit, oceanwater or salt at your own risk.  Danger: Many plant species produce highly toxic fruit etc. Bird/Animal activity, colour and aroma are not conclusive, definite or reliable indicators of plant edibility or medicinal effect in people. Only those species carefully identified should be used. Not all treatments work for everyone. Keep seeking other treatments for your eczema or dermatitis while eating the EdaciousImber cordial fruits for eczema and dermatitis. Eczema can be caused by allergens [2] these must be first avoided for the Cordial fruits to be an effect remedy. Allergens can include agricultural and environmental food pollution [3]. All the individual fruits tested as remedies were less likely to contain trace levels of pollution and were wholefoods grown in good soils.  That is they were all either home garden grown or certified fully organic/biodynamic. The oceanwater was from a clean wilderness beach along an open strait. Fruits for medicinal use need to be grown in unpolluted, well mulched, nutrient high (composted) soils so that they can form/develop all their nutrients [3 ]and medicinal compounds. If they're grown in over tilled (bad) soil they can't draw the necessary nutrients when forming and they probably won't be medicinal. All the fruits and oceanwater tested were not cooked or dried. All the fruits and oceanwater tested were fresh. Fresh fruit is 80% to 90% water, drying reduces this to 25% and increases sugar and carbohydrate concentrations[4]. In times of famine, drought or seasonal scarcity dried fruits (a prune is a dried plum) can still be effective in treating eczema. However, I can not recommend dried fruits for a number of reasons, one being that many dried fruits are very high in sugar and thus a dental hazard. Fresh is best. If you must eat dried fruits be certain that they're certified fully organic and have been naturally sun dried or quick frozen. Some unscrupulous food processors use hazardous chemicals to preserve dried fruit such as, the vitamin B1 decomposing, sulphur dioxide or the toxic methy bromides.[16] Avoid these. Some people with serious eczema, who are far distant from any clean ocean, eat coarse dried ocean salts. If you must then be certain that they're sun dried, hand harvested and certified fully organic. France, California and the UK produce some good coarse dried ocean salts. Alternatively you could make your own by sun or fire evaporating oceanwater in an iron source pan. (Sun evaporated being much preferable). A few grains eaten may well be an ample daily dose.[5] (It's unlikely that any microscopic plankton can survive the drying process). Beware that all dried ocean salts (while still somewhat medicinal) will not be as effective as fresh oceanwater in reducing the symptoms of eczema or maintaining health. Once again fresh is best. Duration of oceanwater treatment is very important and where duration of oceanwater treatment is indicated following such a duration is strongly recommended. Where some form of preparation is required, it's recommended that the noted procedure should be followed in detailFor babies fruit juice may cause diarrhoea or reduce food appetite.[6] Banana can cause constipation for babies.[6] Do not chew on the pulp of a lemon (the yellow inner fruit that contains the juice) as the citric acid will quickly corrode your teeth. Do not spill lemon juice onto your hands (skin) whilst  preparing a lemon to drink. The citric acid could inflame your skin condition. Use a tea cloth or cloth towel to hold a cut lemon with. You could perhaps ask someone else who does not have eczema or dermatitis to extract lemon juice for you. Choose lemons from a healthy tree. Don't use lemons from a tree that looks sick. Don't use lemons from a tree that is planted in a polluted area. For example, a freeway, factory or petrol station etc. Nor use lemons from a tree that has recently been sprayed with pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers. Avoid using polluted or diseased lemons. Lemon trees have thorns. Wear gloves when handling lemon bushes to prevent possible thorn injuries and keep lemon trees away from small children. Too little sodium in the diet can cause a lack of stamina. If you decide to reduce your daily sodium intake do so slowly and gradually. Considerable care should be taken not to overdose on oceanwater. An overdose of oceanwater can cause organ damage.[6] Keep it out of reach of children. Excessive salt intake can damage kidneys.[6] Do not use oceanwater or salt in recipes when preparing food for babies or toddlers.[6] The kidneys of babies, infants and pre-school children are unable to filter out and excrete adult quantities of sodium (salt).[5,6] Babies under 6 months are particularly susceptible.[6] I can not recommend feeding a baby, infant or pre-school child with any saltwater (seawater / oceanwater) or ocean salts. Beware that, when swimming, oceanwater is absorbed through the skin into the body and must still be excreted through the kidneys. People with other medical conditions should consult a physician before changing their salt intakes.[5] For example, other medical conditions include: pre-menstrual swelling (bloated feelings, swelling of the abdomen, ankles, fingers) heart failure (narrowed arteries/heart muscle injury)  liver disease (liver damage can cause the kidney to retain sodium) or kidney disease etc.[5] Apricots, plumcots and plums have a hard stone (pit) in their centre. Numerous basidiomycetous fungi species (sporophores), known as toadstools, are poisonous and should not be eaten.[4] If you gather mushrooms from the wild be certain of their edibility. Choose a pristine clean beach to walk along or swim at. Blue-green/red algae plumes contain some of the most deadly biohazards man can be exposed to in the environment,[7] so if your not sure what plant life you're about to swim amongst stay out of the water. Don't be indifferent to patches of toxic algae or sewage.[7] Keep away from polluted beaches. These include beaches near drain outlets, food processing factories, large shipping ports, wharfs, heavily populated areas, polluted rivers/creeks, power plants, sewage treatment plants, heavy infrastructure e.g. airports/freeways/freight rail yards, industrial complexes, major marinas, land used for hyperintensive agriculture, industrial zones and mining zones. For the most part ocean beaches like bights, straits and seas are usually cleaner than bays, inlets and harbours. In Australia for example Victoria's  Bass Strait beaches are cleaner than those along Port Philip Bay or Western Port Bay. Sydney's Botany Bay beaches are not as clean as most along the Tasman Sea (Pacific Ocean). Do be aware that some beaches are hazardously polluted [7] while others are clean. Go to a clean beach.
Occasionally, particularly after storms, medical/industrial waste (including sharps) and sewage can wash up onto some beaches, seek local knowledge and check with local peoples about potential beach rubbish hazards. Don't eat polluted muscles or other sea life[8] that live near over populated, busy tourist beaches, waste drain outlets/storm water drains outlets, food processing factories, shipping ports, wharfs, etc., etc. Some medical and industrial waste pollutants, usually not immediately harmful to humans as background environmental pollution, are concentrated many times in magnitude by sea muscles.[8] They, unlike more complex organisms, can't expel some pollutants they encounter in the environment.[8] Once again seek a clean beach even if it means that you may have to travel further.  Do not eat seaweed that has washed up onto the beach as it may have drifted many hundreds of kilometres in the ocean from where it could have originated in an industrial shipping waste dump area or an algae plume swamp. Seaweeds that wash up upon pristine clean beaches are not necessarily eatably clean, beware ! Many sea lettuces and seaweeds are delicious, high in iron, and vitamin A. If you eat seaweed as a spice then cut harvest your own eatable seaweed from near-shore underwater seaweed beds/patches in a clean beach area.

No birds were fed or inconvenienced during their photographing for this web site.

In the oceanic waters out to sea of some beaches are strong (out tow) tidal currents (rips). If swimming beware of these strong oceanic underwater outflow currents. These should be avoided by swim in shallow waters close to the shore. 

Ultra violet radiation from the sun can burn your skin and eyes. Don't be burnt by the sun's rays. Do not allow children to get sun burnt. The simplest way to avoid Summer sun burn is to avoid beach going during midday hours. Instead go to the beach in the early morning or late afternoon. It is still possible to get sun burnt in cloudy (over cast) weather. Be aware of this. Skin can be burn by the sun's rays after 20 minutes of exposure. Just wearing a hat is not covering enough. Eyes and skin can be burnt by the sun's rays. Protect yourself. If you must go to a beach during the noon hours wear sun glasses (100% UV shielding glasses) shirts, hats and naturally occurring sunblocker (sunscreen). Don't depend upon sunblock (sunscreen) ointments entirely either. Some can cause allergies and make eczema worsen. Others aren't all that effective. You won't need a hat, shirt and sunscreen if you're on the beach at an hour in which the sun is not. For example in the hottest Summer weeks in Victoria, I go to the beach at 7:45pm in the evening. About 2hrs day light remain and the burning sun is not a problem or concern at that hour. Sun burn can cause ill health. If you've the symptoms of dermatitis or eczema don't be burnt by the sun light. Simply be on the beach in the early morning or very late afternoon.

Beware of lightening storms whilst you're on a beach. If you can see a lightening storm front blowing towards you , along the horizon, leave the beach before it strikes. I was on a beach in Victoria in the midst of a lightening storm that struck and killed a near by beach goer. I was lucky it wasn't me. I shouldn't have been ignorant enough to have been walking such a tightrope to begin with. It knocked me out of my complacency of lightening eye storms. Don't be on the beach when such a weather front hits. Lightening can kill. Don't sail too near the wind, if you see lightening rise and closing in; leave the beach. Persisting on a beach in the midst of a lightening storm is not hard-hat, it is breakneck. Be warned !

Some sea creatures of the deep can be very dangerous. Please do check with local people and do seek local knowledge of potentially deadly wildlife and sea-creatures before you walk along some beaches, rivers or water holes.

Octopuses have the most crafty, sly and 'smoking screening' dispositions of all invertebrate animals. Be warned. They can lurk camouflaged in shallow rock pools and some ooze paralysing venom like the lethally poisonous blue ringed octopus which should never be touched. Stay away from venomous octopuses. Seek local knowledge and check with local people before swimming in some beaches and rivers. Be aware some jelly fishes can sting. Seek local knowledge and check with local people before swimming in some beaches and rivers. Keep away from walruses (Odobenus rosmarus) and polar bears (Ursus maritimus). They can be deadly, lethally fierce and both are very able swimmers (polar bears can swim 80 km in a day) ! So it's not as simple as swimming away from them either. Be warned ! Seek local knowledge and check with local people. Be aware of (order: crocodilia) crocodiles and alligators. These deadly ferocious reptiles kill with their razor-sharp teeth. Check with local people and seek local knowledge before walking along or swimming in some beaches, rivers and water holes. Be aware of deadly sharks (with in the class: chondrichtyes). Particularly great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias). Some sharks hunt in shallow as well as deep waters. A 2000 kg (4500 lb) great white shark can swallow an unwary swimmer whole. Be warned. Seek local knowledge and check with local people.
Finally; Biodanger: Keep away from sewage drain outlets, algal blooms and creeks contaminated with either sewage or patches of toxic (blue-green/red) algae.[7] Failure to adhere to this biodanger algae/sewage alert could cause your DEATH.
