At Holistic Specialists we apply the latest in functional medicine, addressing the underlying causes of your skin disorders (instead of just treating symptoms) so you can get well and stay well without unnecessary drugs or surgery.
We use cutting-edge diagnostic tools to find the problem, and nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, detoxification, lifestyle changes, and only in some cases when necessary, we recommend prescription medications to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance.
More than 3,000 distinct types of skin disease have been identified, and skin diseases are extremely common in the industrialized world. Between 79 and 95 percent of adolescents and 40 and 54 percent of adults in Western societies experience acne. Anthropological studies show that skin conditions are rare or virtually nonexistent in hunter–gatherer cultures. This suggests that most skin disorders are influenced primarily by environmental—rather than genetic—factors and that changes in nutrition and lifestyle may be sufficient to prevent and even reverse them in many cases.
The skin is influenced by other organs in the body. Problems with the skin are almost always a symptom of a deeper problem somewhere else (e.g., the gut or the brain), and you can heal yourself with the proper functional medicine diagnostics identifying the root cause of your skin condition and then by following the recommend nutritional, lifestyle and supplementation strategies.
