Whether it’s acne, psoriasis, rosacea, or eczema, skin issues can be embarrassing, painful, and annoying. To make it all worse, skin problems are notoriously hard to treat. Many people can become dependent on topical steroids or antibiotics to suppress symptoms, but these results will only last as long as the treatment.
How Does Dr. Purdy Treat Skin Disease?
99% of the time, skin problems actually come from within. Your body has many different detox passages known as emunctories, or how we rid our body of “gunk”. The skin is one way the system can purge itself, by pushing toxins outward. The internal offender can be anything from a food our system doesn’t like, to hormonal imbalance, to bacteria or parasites.
Dr. Purdy addresses skin issues from the inside out. Draining the emunctories is the most important step in treating skin issues. For instance, if your bowels aren’t ridding your body of waste, it can then purge out through the skin. Drainage helps each of the emunctories to function at capacity and the body to get rid of toxins in a more efficient manner.
While draining, Dr. Purdy will address the original offender when it comes to your individual skin issue. Personalized herbal combinations will be used to regulate the hormonal picture. Supplementation and nutrition serve to balance the bacterial flora and micronutrient balance in the body. Additionally, natural and non-suppressive topical methods may be utilized to lessen symptoms so you can return to looking and feeling your best while we are working together on a permanent internal solution.
When Should I Come In?
- If you are experiencing a skin issue that seems to be intractable
- If you are generally affected by the appearance or sensation of your skin
- If you have skin issues that have not responded to traditional treatments
- If you are dependent on regular antibiotics, steroids, or immune-suppressant drugs to keep your skin issues at bay.
