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 of causing a multitude of health issues such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and anxiety to name a few.
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. An allergy elimination diet consisting of eliminating gluten, soy, dairy, corn, sugar, and coffee is recommended. Dr. Lalezar would test for heavy metals and in most cases, patient’s skin clears up after a few sessions of chelation therapy. 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.
