Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? It’s the reflection of your health and it mirrors everything that’s going on inside!
With all the pesticides, pollution, antibiotics and poor diets on the rise, it’s not surprising that skin issues are too!
Some people have skin issues since childhood and others get flare-ups later in life but regardless of when it happened, you have to dig deeper to find the underlying root cause.
Antibiotics and corticosteroids are not truly getting to the underlying cause, they’re just putting a bandaid on top of the symptoms… It’s time to stop suppressing the symptoms and heal your body from within. Your body is crying for help!
I’ve worked with multiple types of skin issues in my private practice, trust me, I’ve seen it all! However, the ones that I see over and over again are usually eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
Unfortunately, conventional doctors just talk about taking oral steroids and applying topical creams which just make the situation worse. The truth is that if you don’t go to the real cause of it, it will either get worse or manifest itself as something else in the future.
DO YOU HAVE PSORIASIS, ROSACEA, OR ECZEMA?
Psoriasis is considered to be an autoimmune disease, meaning that part of the body’s own immune system becomes overactive and attacks its normal tissues.
The affected skin can get very itchy/sore with red bumps, and often scaly.
The fact that it is an autoimmune issue indicates that there is a lot of inflammation going on and you need to identify where this is coming from!
Overworked liver? Mould? Heavy metals? Leaky gut?
This is also known as “dermatitis” which refers to inflammation of the skin. I often see this highly linked to gut issues and food sensitivities. High cortisol levels can be a massive trigger too!
The affected skin itches, turns red, burns, and stings. Itchy bumps called hives may pop up on your skin and fluid-filled blisters can form that may ooze and crust over.
This is common in women as they age (not normal though!). It is a chronic inflammatory issue that most commonly affects the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin but some people can experience symptoms on their neck, back, scalp, arms, and legs.
Rosacea can be triggered by certain environmental factors but I’ve also seen this highly linked to inflammation. The body is run down and therefore highly sensitive to everything.
You need to remove toxicities and replace nutrient deficiencies. This is how we rebuild the body back again!
These skin issues may have different triggers, symptoms or severity but they all have one thing in common: inflammation.
Where is the inflammation coming from? Well, it depends on the individual and this is when working with a professional such as myself comes into play!
I will help you identify what the root cause is whether that is through lab testing or symptoms and then advise you on what the best protocol for you would be!
Working from the outside is only temporary. You need to ask “WHY” you have the skin issue in the first place.
