The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is our protective barrier to the outside world. The health and integrity of the skin is very important for our overall health and wellbeing both physically and psychologically. If the skin is displaying conditions such as dermatitis, acne, psoriasis or eczema, rather than using a treatment that just suppresses it, our naturopathic practitioners work to find out why.
Diet very often plays a key role in the development of skin conditions, whether it is unstable blood sugar levels, allergies, food intolerances or nutritional deficiencies, the skin can often be a sign that something internally is not right. Our naturopaths use different pathology tests to identify causation and structure effective treatment.
It is paramount to successful treatment to look at what may be the underlying cause of skin conditions to ensure once treated our patients symptoms don’t return.
