Our skin is our largest and most visible organ. So it's not surprising that the inside health of our body is directly reflected on our outer most layer - our skin. Each bite of food you eat and every sip of liquid you take literally turns into you day after day. In fact, your skin cells completely turn over and create a new you approximately every 28 days. So the YOU of today is not the same you as last month.
How's that for fascinating?
With that knowledge in mind, doesn't it make sense that rather than slathering more hydrocortisone cream or popping more antibiotics or worse, taking Accutane to fix your skin problems, you look at your diet? No offence to Dermatologists, but truly if they started talking to their patients about nutrition instead of writing prescriptions, they would have far fewer patients and much happier glowy sexy people!
I'm a classic example of a dermatology-failure. As a teen I had eczema on my hands and in the winter they would actually crack open and bleed (PAINFUL) - the prescription creams never resolved it. Once I educated myself on the healing benefits of food and supplements, I started taking an omega 3 in my smoothie, vitamin D drops and probiotics, plus changed my diet (over time). Guess what? My eczema completely disappeared.
In addition to this, for many years I had "dermatitis" under my nose. My dermatologist gave me a hydrocortisone cream for that too. I applied it every day religiously and it did nothing other than get worse! I asked her countless times what the root cause was and she never had an answer. She was always so quick to rush me out of her office with another refill of my prescription. Years later the redness is under control because I eat very anti-inflammatory diet and I completely stopped my ALL-Bran and Bran Flakes with cow's milk every morning. However, I suffer the side effects of years of abuse of those nasty creams.
