Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Pigmentation, Inflammatory skin disorders, Dermatitis and Rosacea.
Dermatological conditions can have a major impact on our lives and may persist as acute diagnosis (less than 3 months) or chronic diagnosis (over 3 months) if the right treatment is not established. Dermatological conditions can be triggered by many lifestyle and environmental factors including nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, stress, inflammation or infection and gut microbiota dysbiosis.
Skin conditions may present due to any one or combination of the following:
Poor Dietary habits or alcohol consumption
Weakened immune function and inflammation
The liver and/or digestive tract is not clearing toxins and metabolic wastes from the body.
Stress, anxiety or depression
Lethargic or overworked lymphatic flow leading to slow circulation
Insufficient or over-the-top personal hygiene.
