An Integrative Dermatologist Saved My Skin
This is the story of how integrative dermatology saved my skin.
Adulthood can be tricky, but if someone told me when I was younger that I would still be suffering from unflattering breakouts at my age I would never have believed you.
Acne Isn’t Just for The Kids
I’m not sure where or when the rumor started that acne was only something kids needed to worry about.
As an adult I have had breakouts well in to my 20s which could be embarrassing especially when it came to making a good first impression in business meetings, dates and social interactions.
The Product Guru
I visited countless doctors and tried every treatment in the book.
From Accutane, to facials, creams, washes and antibiotics nothing seemed to be able to combat my face full of acne.
My Introduction to Holistic Dermatology
It wasn’t until I met with a new doctor, an integrative dermatologist, who practiced a more holistic approach to dermatology who finally seemed to remedy my ongoing acne problem.
What Is Holistic Dermatology?
Holistic dermatology refers to the practice of treating the entire patient.
They examine every aspect of you to include your medical background but also your physical and emotional health.
My customized plan was to eliminate anything from my diet that I suspected might cause inflammation in my skin.
Along with my new diet I adhered to a dedicated supplement regimen, cleansing schedule and I cut out alcohol completely.
I can now hold my head high as my acne is finally gone thanks to my holistic dermatologist.
