A Functional Medicine Approach to Skin Health
Skin conditions that impact both the look and health of the skin often stem from factors that extend beyond the surface. Therefore, addressing these issues necessitates a unique approach beyond superficial treatment. Additionally, it’s important to acknowledge that skin problems can significantly influence one’s emotional well-being and self-assurance.
Numerous skin ailments that don’t alleviate with external remedies and anti-inflammatory drugs show positive responses to more profound treatments. This approach might encompass identifying and eliminating potential dietary triggers, optimizing hormone metabolism, and implementing various enhancements aimed at restoring harmony within different bodily systems.
