The Healthy Skin Show
Summary: Fed up with those skin rashes that just won't go away? Join clinical nutritionist, skin rash expert, and eczema warrior Jennifer Fugo to explore alternative ways to look at your frustrating skin conditions. Together, we'll dive deep to empower and inspire you to see your symptoms from a totally different perspective. Each episode tackles a wide range of chronic skin rash issues including (but not limited to) eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, vitiligo, and seborrheic dermatitis. We pull back the curtain to dish on nutrition, diet, root causes, detoxification, lifestyle changes and even innovative published research that doesn't seem to trickle down to your doctor.
Many of us with skin conditions often have deeper issues that we are unaware of, such as digestive problems. Today's guest is here to shed light on that, as well as explain how castor oil can be a beneficial tool to improve gut and skin health.
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’re on some variation of an elimination diet to help your skin. No matter how knowledgable you are, nothing will test your resolve like the holidays. The reason is that some people can easily become offended when you refuse to eat their food (no matter your health situation).
Many of us with skin conditions don't know exactly what is going on. We often don't know our root causes, so we have trouble finding out why our skin is flaring up in various ways. I hope today's guest will help you. My guest today is Ashley James, an entrepreneur, coach and podcaster. When Ashley was 22, she lost her Mom to cancer. This loss was so great it caused Ashley to reassess her life. She became determined to learn how to help others lead healthier happier lives.
As you probably know, psoriasis is so much more than JUST a skin rash condition. That’s why looking at the psoriasis gut connection is crucial!
Skin conditions can lead to feelings of powerlessness. In this conversation, I hope we can shift that. My guest today is Kelli Tennant, Host and Founder of Ceremony Wellness. She helps women heal deeply through Functional medicine, Ayurveda and spiritual development. As an advocate for women, Kelli educates on the importance of speaking up, choosing yourself and living authentic in every aspect of life.
“How do I start reintroducing foods that I’ve eliminated without triggering a flare?” It’s a great question and one that my community has asked me repeatedly to address. The problem is that by blaming diet over and over — food fear is created. And let me tell you from personal experience — food fear is very real (and awful).
Modern human beings spend the overwhelming majority of our time indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend around 90% of our lives inside. That, combined with our fear of spending too much time in the sun, has led many of us to be deficient in wavelengths of light that are actually incredibly beneficial to our health.
If living with skin rashes weren't enough, compulsive skin picking triggered by those rashes makes everything worse. It makes your level of shame go through the roof and can have a bunch of other unintended negative impacts on your life. More formally as Dermatillomania, it is on the OCD spectrum and can cause additional damage to your skin. So if you're dealing with Dermatillomania because of your rashes, or supporting someone who is, I hope that you find this episode enlightening.
In today's world, germs are the enemy. We are constantly washing our hands, wiping down surfaces, and slathering on the hand sanitizer. But what does this over-sanitization mean for our skin and overall health? Maya Shetreat, MD is a neurologist, herbalist, urban farmer, and author of The Dirt Cure: Healthy Food, Healthy Gut, Happy Child (Simon and Schuster, 2016), which has been translated into ten languages.
Magnesium supplements are probably one of the most common supplements that people take. It is important to convert Vitamin D to its active form. It also activates ATP (your body's energy currency) that I've discussed in a previous episode HERE. But when it comes to picking the right form of magnesium, that's where things can get tricky! In today's episode, I'm going to break all that down for you so you know what the best type is for you!
Speaking about our genitals, specifically problems or rashes around them, can be really embarrassing and awkward. My guest today is here to break the stigma around talking about skin rashes in the genital area. Dr. Jolene Brighten, NMD, is one of the leading experts in women’s medicine and is a pioneer in her exploration of the far-reaching impact of hormonal birth control and the little known side effects that impact health in a large way.
Have you ever tried spraying your skin with magnesium oil spray only to end up super itchy? Or maybe your skin feels like it burns… Magnesium is a pretty popular supplement suggestion. And so is this topical route! But there can be a downside to it. So the question is… is it normal to experience this type of reaction?
Sweetness is too important a part of your flavor palette to remove entirely from your life. But what do you do when consuming sugar results in health problems like candida overgrowth? My good friend Ricki Heller is back to share how you can swap out sugar for natural and healthy alternatives.
When the going gets tough, it can feel too easy to throw in the towel. You might think you're doomed and that nothing can help you. But the truth is, addressing your skin rashes and rebuilding healthier skin takes time… a lot longer than it does for other issues. And you need to know that so that you can manage your expectations.
Struggling with acne as an adult can be frustrating. What many people may not know is that nutrient depletion can impact the onset of acne later in life. My guest today offers some information about what to eat to try and reduce adult acne. My guest today is Autumn Fladmo Smith. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a minor in dance from the University of Montana.
