The naturopathic approach to treating skin problems involves treating the body from the inside out, as skin conditions usually stem from functional problems with detoxification, immune function and digestion. Topical treatments for the skin is an integral part of the skin healing process, repairing the damage that has already been done, however I promote the use of healing all-natural products that will not cause harm to the body when absorbed in to the bloodstream. We have to remember that the skin is a major organ and what you put on the skin will ultimately end up being absorbed in to the body using products that contain synthetic chemicals can add to we ultimately need to clear from the body to encourage healing.
Skin Conditions I have experience treating:
- Acne (link to blog post)
- Fungal infections
