Dermatologists usually approach skin conditions by directly treating the skin from the outside in. There are endless skincare products and cosmetics claiming to provide huge benefits. More severe skin problems are often treated with steroid creams, antibiotics and chemical peelers that can wreak havoc with the friendly flora inside the gut.
It is important to remember that the skin is mirroring an internal representation of the gut or the brain and skin problems are often a symptom of an underlying issue that should be investigated. Fry skin could be a thyroid issue, Itchy skin can be a symptom of food intolerances and scaly dry skin could be a warning sign of excess insulin. Mal-digestion, mal-absorption and GI function has to be addressed in any professional skin healing protocol.
A well-supervised detoxification program can have profound results on the quality of complexion; I have personally witnessed countless examples of this from our guests participating in our wellness programs at Amity Wellness. If cleansing seems daunting, a few milder detoxification protocols can be implemented into your daily skincare routine that can greatly improve the look and feel of your skin.
