The most conventional way of treating acne is to take antibiotics, Accutane, or use topical medications. This approach may treat acne but may cause dysbiosis and leaky gut syndrome.
Therefore, the very treatment of acne can become the culprit to causing a multitude of health issues such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Depression, and Anxiety to name a few.
At the Health and Vitality Center we look for multitude of causes that may be disrupting your hormones and resulting in acne.
How to get rid of Acne holistically?
The functional approach to treating acne is to investigate gut health by ordering a CDSA (Complete Diagnostic Stool Analysis), IgG and IgA mediated food sensitivity tests, and a blood test to evaluate Leaky Gut Syndrome. Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and aluminum overload can also be a culprit in disrupting the gut flora and causing hormone imbalance.
Elimination of gluten, soy, dairy, corn, citrus fruits, sugar, and coffee is recommended. Often eradicating systemic yeast in the body may clear up acne as well.
Nutritional deficiencies, Adrenal Fatigue, and Hormone Imbalances are thoroughly investigated and addressed as well. Dr. Lalezar believes that skin manifestation is the body’s way of screaming for help
