If you are currently suffering from acne, eczema or an array of other skin conditions then you know just how demoralizing these skin conditions can be. The skin is your largest organ and a big part of your identity. Blemishes on the skin erode your self-confidence and self-esteem as they are visible to everyone you come in contact with.
Antibiotics, steroids, contraceptives and other medications can produce results whilst you are taking them. However, unless you address the underlying causes of problem skin, you will never experience long lasting clear skin without the need to for medications.
So if you’re tired of dealing with problem skin why not learn how to address it from a different angle.
I always tell my clients that skin issues come from within. While it’s true that topical creams, make-up, sunscreens, etc. can exacerbate your existing skin issues, they are seldom the main cause. By the same token, applying topical solutions can help but unless you address what’s going on inside the body, then these topical treatments will only be minimally effective.
In combination all of these things can help once other underlying issues are being addressed.
Everything in the body is connected. If you are not getting sufficient nutrients then this will inevitably show on the skin. Certain foods are notorious for causing skin eruptions and exacerbating existing skin conditions.
The naturopathic/nutritional approach is address your diet along with giving lifestyle recommendations and targeted nutrients. This ensures that nutritional deficiencies are corrected and enables the body to heal itself.
An added bonus is that you will feel better overall. Not only will your skin clear up so you’ll feel more confident, you will feel healthier too. Your body is always communicating with you. Skin conditions are trying to get your attention. They will resolve once you address the underlying cause.
