Skin Complaints

Most people apply potions and lotions to their skin when they have skin problems, but this is only helping the issue on a very superficial level. We’ll dig deeper to resolve it for good.

ABOUT

At the London clinic of Nutrition we have successfully helped many people deal with skin complaints such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and dermatitis.

Causes

These conditions can have many causes and triggers such as:
  • Prolonged stress
  • Food intolerances
  • Constipation
  • Vitamin B complex deficiencies
  • Traumatic events
  • Essential fatty acid deficiencies
  • Liver congestion
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is also a major component in detoxification. Therefore, if there is an overload of toxins, or the liver, kidney and bowels are not functioning at their optimum, then the body will get rid of these toxins through the skin. There is also a very strong connection between skin health and gut complaints.

Treatments

Our approach for addressing skin complaints is to understand the root cause of what’s behind it. We use nutrition and dietary intervention to support kidney and liver function, helping your body to detoxify efficiently. We can also offer functional testing to help identify any food intolerances that may be affecting your gut lining (causing leaky gut), or potential nutritional deficiencies. Yeast or fungal overgrowth (such as Candida) can also be the cause for some skin problems, and so supporting gut health is key to improving skin health. At The London Clinic of Nutrition, we aim to nourish the body from the inside out, offering you a long-term solution for your skin condition.
