Skin Health

Your skin is your largest organ and an essential part of your immune system, but it is also not regularly considered when one is looking to improve their health. I will work with you to develop a skin health program that  meets your needs.

In order to lessen the toxic burden on your body it is important to treat your skin as though it is one of your internal organs. If you do not think the product would be safe to rub directly onto your heart or liver then chances are, it should not be put onto the skin. The way we treat our skin has an impact on our overall health. These are some of the important functions your skin performs for you:

• It is a barrier for the sun’s harmful UV rays

• It protects against invasion of pathogens and harsh environmental conditions

• It protects against moisture loss

• It helps to retain or lose heat

• Compounds in the skin combine with beneficial UV rays from the sun to make important vitamin D for the body to use

• The skin absorbs chemicals and drugs

• While you sleep your skin is hard at work regenerating itself, balancing oil production and expelling impurities

Shower Filter

In order to treat your skin with the respect it deserves you may want to invest in a shower filter. Most municipal water has fluoride and chlorine in it. Both of these chemicals interfere negatively with how the body functions and they most certainly interfere with the function of the thyroid gland. There is also an overabundance of pharmaceutical drugs in the water that is being absorbed by the skin and may be causing damage to internal organs, especially the liver! A good quality shower filter is a must. Besides being good for overall health the use of one will most likely result in softer, silkier skin and hair.

Skin Care Products

Our favorite skin care products are created by Dr. Hauschka. Whichever products you choose to rub on your skin,  every ingredient within that product will be transported into your blood stream. It stands to reason, that it would be in your skin’s best interest if your skin care products were actually edible! There are a number of good, healthy skin care choices out there, and if you need help understanding labels we will help you with the process of finding a product line that suits your needs and budget. If you would like Christina to customize a skin care protocol for you using the Dr. Hauschka product line, please contact us for an appt. It is only a matter of time before your skin begins to glow!

Skin Problems

Beautiful skin ultimately comes from within. If you have a good shower filter and are using “clean” skin care products and still suffer from acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, or any other skin problems – your body is sending you very clear signals that it is in need of support.
