Conventional Dermatology acne treatment What I do with natural acne treatment
Patient History
Nurse/physician’s assistant takes a brief patient history (5 min).
Patient History
With holistic skincare, I take your history personally, and also include a thorough history of digestive function, including drugs and events which disturb the GI tract.
Examination
After triage, the examination focuses on the local skin problem.
Examination
I examine the local skin problem, and then widen my scope to include the entire system, looking for other signs of organ malfunction to correct, throughout the body.
Diagnosis
Conventional dermatologist makes a conventional diagnosis of the “disease” present, using biopsy, scraping, or other lab tests.
Diagnosis
In addition to the conventional dermatological diagnosis, I make a second “causal” diagnosis for the chain of events involved. I also use Applied Kineseology, tongue diagnosis, and advanced electronic testing devices, and your history help understand what affects the digestive tract, and other sources of stimulation of the inflammation going on. Finally, if necessary, I will use lab tests, conventional and otherwise.
Treatment
Treat with a pill and/or a cream to suppress your rash (acne, etc), rather than correcting the actual cause of your condition.
Treatment
We aim to unravel all of the problems and reactions which led to your skin’s inflammation, improving your digestion, aiding the function of supportive organs, all or mostly with herbal treatment, diet changes, and natural supplements, rather than drugs. We call this natural dermatology, holistic dermatology, alternative dermatology, or integrative dermatology.Drugs and surgery are considered only when they are the best alternative.
Side Effects
Since treatment often involves suppression of the body’s immune system, infection or other problems steroids, may have negative results. Antibiotics may wipe out normal bacteria in the digestive tract, setting the stage for yeast overgrowth, and all of the related damage to the intestinal barrier, including bloating, overweight, poor digestion, acne, rashes, brain fog, and more. The underlying problems often still persist.
Side Effects (all positive)
Happily, the side effects are often improved energy, normalization of digestion, reduction of allergies, and pain, and weight loss.
