Going holistic! Why go for natural skin care? [part 1]

6a00e55255b462883401a3fcd5fbe5970b-250wiWhy Go Holistic with Your Skin?

Why not just go to your local dermatologist and get the latest conventional treatments for your skin disorder? Of course, these treatments are scientifically approved and paid for by your insurance. They often involve the latest and most sophisticated chemical drugs, which have gone through millions of dollars worth of testing and have been approved by the FDA after a rigorous process. And, it might not be a bad idea to get the expertise in skin diagnosis from your local doctor.

Perhaps you have an acute problem that clears completely with treatment. That’s a good thing.

But some people who respond initially to conventional treatments find that their condition returns again and again and that they need stronger medication each time to suppress and control it. Other people don’t improve at all. Sometimes a skin rash will clear completely through conventional treatment, but it serves only to drive the actual issue deeper underground. More on natual skin care and treatment in the next post.

To your health,
