Skin Conditions

Acne is not just a problem for teenagers, it can affect people from ages 10 through
40. It is not unusual for women, in particular, to develop acne in their mid-to-late
20's, even if they have not had breakouts in years (or ever). Acne can appear as any of
the following; congested pores, whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, pustules, or cysts
(deep pimples). These blemishes occur wherever there are many oil (sebaceous)
glands, mainly on the face, chest, and back.

Acne has many causes including liver overload with toxins,
allergies, and hormonal
dysfunction. By discovering the cause, you can thereby eliminate the problem.

Eczema is a general term for many types of skin inflammation, also known as
dermatitis. Eczema can affect people of any age, although the condition is most
common in infants.

While any region of the body may be affected by eczema, in children and adults,
eczema typically occurs on the face, neck, and the insides of the elbows, knees, and
ankles. In infants, eczema typically occurs on the forehead, cheeks, forearms, legs,
scalp, and neck.

Some forms of eczema can be triggered by
allergies to substances that come in contact
with the skin, such as soaps, cosmetics, clothing, detergents, jewelry, or sweat.
Environmental allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions) may also cause
outbreaks of eczema. Vitamin deficiencies and
heavy metal burdens are also among
the causes of eczema.

What Can you Do?
One of the first places for you to start improving the health of your skin is your diet.
Following a cleansing, anti-inflammatory diet, such as the one included in our
personalized program will help you understand how powerfully your diet relates to the
condition of your skin. And while you are cleaning out your insides, you should also
check into your emotions — because your feelings can be as inflammatory as dietary
and environmental factors.
