CONDITIONS WE HELP TREAT
Acne & Other Skin Conditions
"Good Skin Comes from the Inside Out, Not the Outside In!"
- Dr. Mark Hyman
"As a teen I had Acne, like most of us did. But then it was gone... until I turned 33. Acne popped up on my face, my back and my legs. Also at this time I was gaining belly fat, I couldn't sleep well, I was chronically tired and I could not stop my self binge eating at night. At this point I was fed up with acne. It turns out I suffered from Adrenal Fatigue. I was also experiencing a long list of issues associated with Adrenal Fatigue including heavy metal toxicity, hypoglycemia, poor sleep due to upper airway resistance syndrome, and food Intolerances."
- Dr. Michael Komro
See what happens when we fix our diet....
Maintaining healthy skin and clearing up acne truly depends on the optimal function of lots of the core systems of the body — your nutritional status, your body's defense system, your hormones and the mind-body health.
How to Get Rid of Acne The Right Way:
A POOR DIET CAN BE HORRIBLE FOR YOUR SKIN
Skin health is completely tied to your diet.
Acne is the result of inflammation in your body caused from too much cellular oxidative stress.
Eating too much sugar will spike insulin and eventually testosterone. This increase causes too much inflammation in the gut and therefore, too much inflammation in the skin, causing acne.
Saturated fats, which are pro-inflammatory, compete with Omega fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory.
HORMONAL IMBALANCES CAUSE SKIN PROBLEMS
Hormonal imbalances from a poor diet influence hormones like testosterone, IGF-1 (insulin-like growth hormone), and insulin, which promote acne.
Eating omega-3 fats and fiber (to scale back testosterone in women), cutting out sugar (to scale back insulin), and using soy foods (to scale back toxic testosterone levels) help balance hormones. Exercise also dramatically helps improve insulin function.
LEAKY GUT AND FOOD ALLERGIES CAUSE ACNE
Food sensitivities are a major cause of acne. 80% of your Immune system is in your gut. If your gut overreacts to a food in your body, your skin overreacts to oils in your skin. Foods of major concern are sugar, gluten and milk. Some patients also exhibit intolerances toward corn, soy and rice, although these are much rarer.
STRESS WRECKS OUR BODIES
Stress can cause acne by causing increased inflammation and cellular stress by raising cortisol, and depleting zinc and magnesium which help control acne.
Stress can also lead to poor dietary choices due to a drop in blood sugar and your brain then screams at you to eat sugar.
Why should you see a chiropractor for acne treatment?
Acne is often a symptom that something may be wrong with our body chemistry, diet, or skin care. Incorporating a more whole foods, plant based diet plus nutritional supplements and certain lifestyle changes can promote healing and clear acne.
