Acne

Acne can seem like a puzzle at times.  Our approach to acne is identifying the underlying imbalance that is causing the acne to manifest.  In naturopathic medicine, we view acne and other skin conditions as a symptom of an internal imbalance.  Imbalance(s) causing acne can vary from one person to the next, which is why an individualized approach is essential for long term relief.  Our process begins by identifying factors in a person's lifestyle and medical history that could be contributing to their acne. Testing may be recommended in order to assist in developing more targeted recommendations and accelerate healing. Natural skin products may also be recommended for existing breakouts and to reduce appearance of dark marks.  Some common contributing factors to acne we see are hormone imbalance, food sensitivity, bacterial/fungal overgrowth etc.

The naturopathic approach to skin conditions is less about the diagnosis and more about identifying the underlying imbalance.
 

Eczema 

 In naturopathic medicine, we view eczema and other skin conditions as a symptom of an internal imbalance that is causing the immune system to overreact.  Imbalance(s) causing eczema can vary greatly from one person to the next, which is why an individualized approach is essential for long term relief.  Our process begins by identifying factors in a person's lifestyle, genetics, and medical history that could be contributing to their eczema. Testing may be recommended in order to assist in developing more targeted recommendations and accelerate healing. Skin products may also be recommended to relieve itching and improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

Some common contributing factors to eczema we see are food sensitivity, fatty acid deficiencies, leaky gut etc.

 

Rosacea 

Rather than treating rosacea only with a cream or an antibiotic, in naturopathic medicine, our approach to rosacea is identifying the underlying imbalance that is causing the rosacea to manifest.  Imbalance(s) causing rosacea can vary greatly from one person to the next, which is why an individualized approach is needed for long term relief.  Our process begins with identifying factors in a person's lifestyle and medical history that could be contributing to their rosacea. Testing may be recommended in order to assist in developing more targeted recommendations and accelerate healing. Skin products may also be recommended to decrease redness and improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

Some common contributing factors to rosacea we see are poor digestion, bacterial/fungal overgrowth, vitamin/mineral deficiencies etc.
