Have you tried every skin product on the market and not getting results? Tried hormonal contraceptive pills or other medications only to have your condition return as soon as you stop taking it? Do you feel too embarrassed by the look of your skin you can’t leave the house without make-up on? Or maybe you miss out on a summer by the beach because you spend all the time covering up your skin.
The good news is acne, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis amongst other skin conditions all have one thing in common their presentation is often a sign of a greater internal imbalance.
These conditions may arise from poor gut health, immune system and/ or hormonal imbalance, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies, stress as well as microbial infections.
It is for this reason I take a holistic approach to the management of these conditions to uncover the root cause of your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan including dietary and lifestyle measures as well as herbal and nutritional medicine where applicable to help you achieve the healthy clear skin you’re after.
