What your skin reveals about your health

Our skin is often a helpful indicator of what’s going on inside the body. Common symptoms such as acne can be a sign of hormonal imbalance or, in the case of deep cystic acne, also food allergy. The body’s reactions to undiagnosed food allergy or other allergies can also manifest in dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.

Redness and blotchiness of the skin can be triggered by stress or chronic inflammation of the digestive tract.

Dry skin is often a sign that you are not consuming enough good fats, or that your fat intake is not balanced. Always make sure you are taking a good quality fish oil supplement along with borage seed oil.

White spots on the skin are most probably the result of a fungal infection, and brown spots may be due to sun damage or another symptom of hormonal imbalance.

Most of these unpleasant skin conditions are reversible once we figure out and square away the underlying cause. Your skin is one of your most valuable assets and one of the first things people notice about you, so if you have problems or questions about your skin, come in and we will figure it out.
