Natural Approach to Healthy Skin

Naturopathic Approach to Healthy Skin

If your skin isn’t healthy, it might be a sign of something deeper. Bringing balance to the whole person can also restore balance to your skin!

Vibrant Skin is More Than Skin Deep

Our skin is not only the largest organ of the body, but it is also a window providing a glimpse into our internal body’s health.

Our skin health often reflects what is going on with our internal health and can indicate deeper issues.

Likewise, healthy skin is often the result of overall health and balance of the whole body.

As naturopathic doctors, it is our goal to determine the potential causes of your skin issues, whether your condition is hormonal acne, dry skin, itchy rashes, eczema, psoriasis, or an unknown issue.

Sometimes the skin is reacting to something localized and topical–an allergy, a reaction to a skin care product or soap, an infection, or an irritation due to an environmental exposure.

Sometimes the skin is reacting in response to something in the diet or as a result of poor digestion.

Your skin can also react to hormonal imbalances, immune system dysfunctions, and suboptimal metabolic and energy production.

It’s our job to help you determine the root cause(s) of your skin issues, and develop a comprehensive plan to help your overall body, as well as your skin, return to a balanced and healthy state.

Our Natural Approach to Skin Health

The Naturopathic Doctors at Lewis Family Natural Health take both an “inside out” as well as an “outside in” approach to your skin health.

Our “inside out” approach means we understand how your internal health may contribute to your skin concerns. Hormone balance, healthy digestion, a strong immune system, and a good metabolism are all important considerations when it comes to understanding your underlying factors of skin health. Finding ways to manage your stress levels and encourage a healthy night’s sleep are important steps to take as well.

Additionally, we find a natural and healthy “outside in” approach can be a great difference-maker for your skin. What we put on our bodies is sometimes just as important for our health as what we put in our bodies.

Because healthy-looking skin is the result of a comprehensive plan, inside and out, our doctors will consider a great variety of approaches when we put a plan together uniquely for you.

Different approaches to skin health used by the naturopathic doctors at Lewis Family Natural Health might include dietary modification, high-quality nutritional supplements, discussing potential light therapies, evaluation of skin care products, food allergy identification and desensitization, homeopathic remedies, immune support, and even additional lab testing if necessary and beneficial.
