With a total area of about twenty feet, skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is responsible for serving as a barrier between the often harsh outside world and the internal physiological environment. This function can become compromised with unhealthy eating habits, dehydration or insufficient nutrients. Skin that is aggravated or inflamed needs an individualized plan that focuses on diet, nutrition and lifestyle in order to restore balance and appropriate barrier function.
Problematic skin can often be improved by focusing on the gut. A comprehensive protocol involves removing foods that cause allergies or intolerances, repairing any damage to the digestive tract, restoring beneficial microorganisms and replacing any deficient elements that work to support digestion.
During a consultation, the focus is on food – what foods are beneficial for skin and what foods are best to avoid. If appropriate, we’ll discuss special diets - and if desired, I’ll provide resources for food allergy testing. Other topics, including stress management, supplementation, skin care routine and topical products, may be addressed.
