Healthy Skin From The Inside Out




Our skin is a window that reflects the state of our internal health (digestion, hormone balance, immune system, and inflammation). When our skin is flaring with acne, rashes, rosacea, redness, inflammation, or sores it is often signaling to us that something internal needs attention. As our skin is the body’s largest organ of elimination, sometimes the route of our skin issues may indicate a need for support in detoxification.

FIVE AREAS OF INVESTIGATION FOR BETTER SKIN

1) Toxicity: Is an organ of elimination over-burdened or under-functioning? Treat with individualized botanicals and nutritional support

2) Food sensitives:

Are food sensitivities present? Identify via Serum Food Antibody Test or Elimination Diet

Treat by removing trigger foods from diet

3) Hormones: Are there any hormone imbalances?

Identify with salivary hormone testing

Treat with botanicals or Bio identical hormones and nutritional support

4) Digestive enzyme deficiency Is there a digestive enzyme deficiency?

Identify with Betaine HCL test Treat with proper eating habits and apple cider vinegar or enzyme supplementation.

5) Gut dysbiosis

Is SIBO (small intestine overgrowth) present?

Identify with hydrogen breath test

Treat with two phases: Phase 1: specific targeted antibiotics or botanical protocol

Phase 2: motility agents and SIBO diet

Is Candida Overgrowth present? Identify through history, blood antibody, or stool test
