Acne and rosacea.

Are you ready to get rid of Acne & Rosacea for good?

Problems on your skin are a mirror to imbalances in your gut

Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annuallyIt is a condition where hair follicles become clogged with oil and sebum causing pustules, whiteheads, blackheads, comedones or bumps on the skin. 

The skin condition is the cause of suffering for millions of people especially when it is more severe.  It can cause low self esteem and have negative effects on quality of life.  The condition can be complicated by rosacea where the skin turns red and looks inflamed. But what actually causes this condition?

Standard conventional medicine treats it superficially usually with long term antibiotics, oral contraceptives, drugs like Accutane or topical medications.   

This approach at best can have short term improvements causing many other negative health effects that themselves worsen the root cause of the skin condition. Yes, this sounds hard to believe but this is exactly what occurs with conventional treatments using antibiotics and oral contraceptives.

These drugs significantly disturb gut microbial balance causing dysbiosis ( imbalanced bacteria), yeast or candida overgrowth and intestinal permeability or leaky gut. 

The ironic thing is that these are most commonly the original reasons acne occurs.  Disturbances in healthy gut microbiome are the gateway to disease and once of the ways the body shows signs of this disturbance is through these skin eruptions.  Using drugs like antibiotics, or oral contraceptives for acne treatment can result in worsening of gut microbial imbalance and be the gateway to other new onset disease like autoimmune disease, thyroid disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other gut disease like irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease. 

At Advance Health Integrative and Functional Medicine our mission is to address all root causes of a health problem assuring that we first do no harm.

Dr Rashel addresses the actual root causes of acne thoroughly and in this way has great success helping patients arrive at optimal hormone balance and resolution of skin conditions. 

How will we treat Acne and Rosacea with comprehensive functional medicine from the root cause?

Dr Rashel uses a holistic functional medicine approach to treating these bothersome skin conditions by making absolutely certain we address gut health and microbial balance.  A Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology, will investigate your gut health, identify imbalances, deficiencies in digestion, gut inflammatory markers and more. We will assess intestinal permeability or leaky gut along with micronutrient, hormone, and food sensitivities. 

Impaired digestion and bacterial overgrowth can also manifest as skin eruptions and will be addressed.

We will also investigate any toxic body burden such as heavy metals and other environmental toxins that are endocrine disruptors negatively affecting your hormone balance as well disrupting gut microbial balance, all root cause culprits in acne and rosacea.   

Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and aluminum overload can also be a culprit in disrupting the gut flora and causing hormone imbalance.

Once the root causes are identified, targeted personalized customized treatments are provided with exactly the right amounts of nutrients, detoxification agents, botanicals, bio-identicals and more to restore balance to your system and eliminate any skin problems for good.
