Herbs like cilantro can be very beneficial. They have a capability of binding out toxic metals like mercury and can help remove those from the body. The caution is that if you are very very sensitive to these metals, they move them out of privileged spaces and float them in your blood and possibly if you have enough damage to your blood-brain barrier, into your brain as well. So you need to know where you are in terms of your toxicity and your body load and your blood-brain barrier to know how to use these herbs for your benefit and make sure that they don’t cause problems.
Let’s talk a little bit about a condition known as Psoriasis or sometimes the Heartbreak of Psoriasis. Psoriasis involves thick red patches of skin often in the pressure areas or elsewhere throughout the body on the skin. It can be very mild and barely visible or it can be extremely widespread and for some people very disturbing.
Now, eczema is a much milder condition. But Psoriasis tends to be thick it can be itchy or painful and it is caused by the type of inflammation that enlarges the blood vessels in the skin. This causes the skin cells to reproduce and turn over much faster, that is like 4 to 6 days instead of 28 days before they get to the top.
And that over production of the skin cells causes the thickening and the scaling that occurs. So we need to cut down the inflammation that causes that. That is a lymphocytic delayed hypersensitivity celli or immune response causing it. And we know that partly by the new drugs that poison that response and we know that if we can take away what is setting off that inflammation, we can also calm it down. And we can do that through diet as well as through the modern drugs. If you need help with the heartbreak of psoriasis, contact my office for an appointment.
“It comes down to them total environmental causes and how the cultural specific things that we’re doing. That we don’t see because we are like in a fishbowl we say oh that’s you know. I’m on a normal diet normal American day, but did you know no American diet includes 140 pounds of sugar per person per year! That really year is something that they are species didn’t grow up with. You had to work awfully hard 150 years ago to find a hundred pounds or 150 pounds sugar to eat. We are in a situation it’s very different we call it normal. I look at many of those kinds of things make shifts in them and watch the benefits that it that occur and people who work with me have that kind of benefit.”
“I would imagine that many patients want instant gratification and they probably get that when they go to a traditional dermatologist. I would imagine your methods take a lot of time is that correct?”
“They take more time the effect is not as instant as a shot of steroids in the arm where things calm down right away but many people do experience a calming down occurring you know within the days and weeks after they have start the program. The nice thing is it doesn’t go away when they start putting something on their skin.”
Can natural skincare improve your energy and overall wellbeing? “The question I’d like to ask you, Dr. Dattner is, what is the most rewarding thing you find about your work in holistic dermatology?”
“Seeing people get really back into the world of the living where they’ve been having chronic fatigue your digestive problems or skin problems that have kept them indoors or out of the game, and seeing them begin to feel really good about themselves, feel more energetic. I really love making a difference in people’s lives, and that’s the kind of thing that that keeps happy.”
“So, it’s encouraging them to the the well to have a good diet exercise well…”
“Yes but there are many specifics for the given individual. It’s not just good diets–it’s the kind of diet that they need, the things they need to eliminate include in order to make shifts in how their immune system is functioning how their digestive system is functioning in what parts that actually their genomes are opened up in reaction to things.”And you can get a sensor that with the tests that you do by speaking with them?”
“Yes, because you see each person is a living example in their experiences up how they react, so I get it of a lot of information from just hearing a person’s story in asking pointed questions that let me know what’s going on with the various aspects physiology.”
“Visiting Dr. Dattner was the best health decision I have ever made. Let me start by saying that I have suffered with acne pimples and skin problems for most of my life.
Like many people, I have been to dozens of dermatologists and have been mistreated or misdiagnosed numerous times. Some said I had Eczema, some said I had rosacea, and others stated I suffered from rash like symptoms on my face. I felt as though I was being treated like a “guinea pig” since with each visit I was given a different form of antibiotic or topical solution that made my skin worse. I eventually gave up hope and tried to do my own research and in passing came across Dr. Dattner’s holistic approach on the internet.
I eventually contacted Dr. Dattner and after considerable thought decided to make an appointment. This turned out to be the best decision I could have made because in the one hour that I spent with him he diagnosed what others could not do for so many years. His holistic approach is top notch and I have no regrets. Now I am truly on my way to recovery! Thank you Dr. Dattner!!” –Anthony M. Bronx NY
“After decades of struggling with fatigue, colds, and muscle ache, I can finally say I have my life back. I came to see Dr. Dattner after seeking treatment from a dermatologist for a condition called piityriasis rosea, a skin condition, which appears as red welts and is very itchy. I was miserable, and other doctors couldn’t help me.
Under the care of Dr. Dattner within 3 weeks I was welt-free and itch-free. We worked on diet, skin care, and the use of supplements. As time went on Dr. Dattner helped address other health issues I was experiencing for years, including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, gastritis, constipation and acid reflux.
Treatment has been so successful that I am now working once again outside the home. Even better yet I have eliminated naps. And yes there are other benefits to be had too; I have escaped colds and flu through the winter season without an annual flu vaccine.” -BV, New York
“Dear Dr. Dattner, I wanted to take the time to thank you for your herbal remedy to fight my severe acne condition. I had a lot of breakouts particularly on my nose, one of the most visible areas on the face on a weekly basis.
After our visit, I have seen a tremendous improvement in my skin–my face has cleared up tremendously, and I feel much happier.
In the past I have tried many different remedies, going to other dermatologists who only prescribed antibiotics, which became a health hazard over a period of time. I feel so much safer taking herbal remedies. Thank you again.” -JoC, New York
