Acne

Acne can be soul destroying. It’s NOT just a “cosmetic” issue.

  • You find your confidence & mental health is suffering.
  • You’ve wasted too many hours in the bathroom mirror, picking your skin apart.
  • You’re tired of hiding under makeup. You can’t hide the bumpy texture & you KNOW that makeup is making your acne worse.
  • You can’t go out in public without studying other people’s skin. Acne is on your mind 24/7.
  • You know acne is a sign of poor internal health… but you have no idea what could be wrong, or where to even start…

 This is why stubborn, persistent acne is best treated with an inside-out AND an outside-in approach.

Skin products and skin treatments, while helpful, are often not enough to resolve your chronic acne problem for good. The same goes for just focusing on healing the gut. Acne is a LOT more complex than taking some probiotics or bone broth!

Please know that if you are taking generic supplements, without medical advice, this can make your acne worse. 😱😱😱

Acne & The Immune System:

Acne was once thought to be primarily a hormonal problem, but we now know that acne is largely an IMMUNE problem. The inflammatory immune response is further exacerbated by hormones and skin barrier dysfunction.

In order to break the acne cycle…

👉 Our first question is – what is driving your inflammation and what is your unique immune response?

The immune contribution to acne is typically shaped by what we call Th1 and Th17 immune typesIf you’ve never heard of the immune types – that’s ok!! We are experts in understanding this concept. 🙂

As functional medicine practitioners, our job is to take ALL of the factors of acne into consideration. Not only do you need a comprehensive understanding of your hormonal and immunological state, you need to work on factors to reduce excessive sebum production, stress, insulin regulation and dietary advice.
