Your skin provides a physical barrier that protects you from pathogens & contaminants in the external environment. While this may seem obvious, what is often less obvious is how the skin constantly works to regulate the body’s internal environment. The skin is your body’s largest organ and the state of its health reflects your overall health and well being. As a major route of elimination, many skin symptoms are not so much an inherent problem with the skin itself, but instead speak more to systemic imbalance. When a skin condition develops, it is important to determine and address the root cause, as opposed to merely suppressing the symptoms.
At Naturopathic Foundations, our approach to resolving skin conditions involves:
Creating individualized diets that identify & remove food sensitivities.
Correcting mineral imbalances and deficiencies which inhibit the body’s ability to effectively excrete toxins and establish optimal pH.
Strengthening the body’s ability to eliminate toxins via botanicals, homeopathic drainage, hydrotherapy and nutritional supplements.
Addressing sources of mental &/or emotional stress and implementing healthy coping strategies.
Regulating the function of the immune system to improve its efficacy.
Providing ongoing assessment of overall wellbeing and delivering proactive preventative care to maintain the health of all organ systems.
