The conventional approach to treat skin issues is largely two-dimensional: pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter products.
But your skin exists as part of a larger system, and skin issues are typically a symptom of an internal problem. So to get to the root of the problems, you have to look at the whole system that makes up your body through a functional lens:
THE UNDERLYING FACTOR OF THESE THINGS IS STRESS
You many different things that stress your body, and it can only take so much of it. And, it isn’t capable of differentiating between the various kinds of stress it goes through.
The hormonal response is the same.
And how does stress commonly show up? Through inflammation which often first shows up on your skin.
Skin issues are symptoms of bigger problems, so we have to look at it through a functional lens. We do that by addressing these areas:
Eliminate inflammatory and processed foods, reset your taste buds and learn how to enjoy healthy, nutritious, nourishing foods.
Through careful tracking, identify triggers & root causes, and address nutrition or lifestyle deficiencies getting in the way of your healing.
Understand how environmental toxins impact your health and learn practical ways to reduce your exposure and toxic load.
Idenitfy major sources of your stress (in all the ways you experience it) and strategize on ways to reduce their impact.
