Let's step into some "Functional Medicine/Beauty" and get to the ROOT of Clearing Skin Disorders Naturally
1. The skin is the largest and most visible organ of the body.
2. Heredity, diet, toxins, and allergen factors involved.
3. Detoxification is essential for people with skin disorders. The liver is the major organ involved.
4. Proper balance of the liver, lungs, kidneys, and digestive system maintains healthy skin.
Natural Acne Solutions
1. Probiotic + (Acidophilus & Bifidus) or high quality plain yogurt & kefir
2. Sulfur rich foods: eggs, fish, garlic, broccoli, and or MSM supplements
3. Vitamin A 25,000-100,000 (use with caution at higher levels and short term for a month or so)

6. Zinc 30-60 mg
1. Inflammatory skin reaction characterized by itching, redness, blisters, or dryness.
2. A sign of toxins from inside your body. Treating with creams is not addressing the root causes of toxicity.
3. Detoxify to expel the toxins, thus preventing the problem from returning.
4. Homeopathic remedies: Silica, Sulphur, Graphites, Psorinum
5. Dietary factors/allergens common
1. Auto-immune, inflammatory skin condition. Caused by faulty immune system which over-reacts and
accelerates the growth of skin cells. Normally skin cells mature and are shed every 30 days. In psoriasis,
skin cells mature in 3 to 6 days, and pile up.
2. There are five types. Some get a related form called “psoriatic arthritis,” of the joints.
3. Plaque psoriasis is the most common type. It appears as patches of raised, reddish skin covered by silvery-white scale. These patches, or plaques, frequently form on the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp.
Dry Skin and Dandruff
1. Water: 8-12 glasses pure
2. EFA’s: Flax seed oil, Cod liver oil, fatty fish
3. Use filter in shower to reduce chlorine
4. Minerals: sodium (sea salt/ Nat Mur) and potassium
5. Sugar is a culprit so need to eliminate. Also need to increase B-complex
6. Gall Bladder? Liver? Candida?
Atopic eczema is associated with a genetic predisposition to non-regulation and imbalance of the immune system. People with atopic allergies lack cellular immune defences (TH1) and have too many humoral immune defences (TH2). The cause of this is most likely to be environmental stress – poor diet, pollution etc. Excessive cleanliness is also cited as a cause of atopic disease – this cause is known as 'The Hygiene Hypothesis'. The goal for treatment, therefore, is to rebalance the immune system to have an equal strength of TH1 and TH2 defences. Treatment possibilities include:
• Correcting faulty digestion;
• Increasing the ratio of omega-3 fats in our diets;
• Checking for low stomach hydrochloric acid. Supplementing Betaine Hydrochloride;
• Supplementing Probiotics
• Supplementing with vitamins, herbs and minerals, including magnesium, zinc, iron, manganese calcium, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and B-vitamins especially B6;
• Increasing intake of monunsaturated fats: found mainly in nuts and olive oil;
• Reducing numbers of yeasts and bacteria on the skin and in the body;
• Exposure to moderate UVA: sunlight improves atopic eczema;
• Increasing exercise: this balances the immune response, gets oxygenated blood flowing, and improves appetite, digestion, sleep and endorphin release;
• Controlling stress: stress exhausts the hormonal system, causing worsening atopic systems. The adrenal gland releases cortisol when the body is under stress, overworking the endocrine system.
