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.
Today's episode is all about bath additives. Bleach baths, chlorine baths, colloidal oatmeal baths, Epsom salt baths...my guest and I cover all this and more! My guest today is Christa Biegler, host of the Less Stressed Life podcast and has an integrative nutrition private practice focusing on skin, digestive, autoimmune and allergy issues. She started The Less Stressed Life as a play on words for anti-inflammatory life. She lives with her unicycling husband and kids in the rural Midwest.
There are countless sensitive skincare products available today. For people with skin rashes and dry skin, these products seem like the right fit, because "dry" and "rashes" often go hand in hand with "sensitive". My guest today will debunk this common misconception. My guest today is Rachael Pontillo, a holistic skincare innovator, author, and educator. Rachael is the bestselling author of the book Love Your Skin, Love Yourself, and co-author of The Sauce Code.
Topical Steroid Withdrawal is becoming more well known, but many Western medicine practitioners don't adequately recognize or treat it. My guest today will explain how Eastern medicine can help. My guest today is Dr. Olivia Hsu Friedman, DACM, LAc, Dipl.OM. She is the owner of Amethyst Holistic Skin Solutions and treats eczema, TSW, psoriasis, and acne patients throughout the US in person and via video conferencing using only herbal medicine.
And it’s not uncommon for me to find that fungal issues elsewhere tend to match up to having fungal overgrowth in the gut. I wanted to share my alternative perspective on Inverse Psoriasis so that if you’re struggling with it (or you know someone who is), you can use it as a clue! You don’t have to feel embarrassed or live in shame about it because knowing that IP is present could help you identify other issues driving your psoriasis under the surface.
Psoriasis is a condition that is frustrating to have, and often frustrating to treat as well. My guest today is going to dive in to different forms of psoriasis, why getting a correct psoriasis diagnosis is important, and how psoriasis can affect other systems in the body. My guest today is Dr. Raja Sivamani, a board-certified dermatologist who practices at Pacific Skin Institute.
Is there an H. pylori diet that can help? Is H. pylori contagious? What supplements are helpful to get rid of H. pylori? These are just some of the questions I’ve received over the past two weeks after the release of the H. pylori and Skin Rashes episode on the Healthy Skin Show. Because of the overwhelming response, I felt it was only right to do a Part 2 so that you could get answers to your questions!
Most of us know about why we need probiotics to help optimize our gut health. But have you ever heard of prebiotics? My guest is going to tell us all about them. My guest today is Kelsey Kinney MS, RD, a registered dietitian in private practice specializing in digestive and hormonal health. She completed her Bachelor's degree in Nutrition at New York University and holds a Master's degree from the University of Western States in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.
Did you ever notice that Rosacea trigger foods are also high histamine foods? Apparently, research is showing more and more a connection between histamine and rosacea flares! Though some people will find that following a rosacea diet can help lessen the redness in their skin, others will still get flares without explanation. The connection to histamine may finally answer one of the reasons why.
Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India, and it is slowly gaining popularity in the West because of its holistic approach to treating each person based on their unique needs. My guest today is Dr. Marc Halpern, the founder and President of the California College of Ayurveda. A Doctor of Chiropractic and an Ayurvedic Doctor, he is the co-founder of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association, the National Council on Ayurvedic Education and the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine.
If you’ve considered starting Dupixent or some other type of biologic medication for your rashes, here’s something to consider. Problems (that aren’t significant enough to be major issues yet) can be lurking under the surface and go unnoticed. If a biologic medication works, symptoms should go away. That’s a great thing for your confidence, peace of mind, and daily level of comfort.
Rosacea is a skin condition best known for causing redness and flushing. But is can also lead to pustules and comedones. My guest today will share more about rosacea, as well as possible treatment options. My guest today is Dr. Peter Lio, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology & Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
If you’ve followed along for a while now, you know that hidden bugs can be one of the root causes driving your skin rashes. H. pylori is one of those bugs that is often overlooked! Yes, there is an H. pylori-Skin Rash connection. Though most of the symptoms associated with H. pylori are gut-related, it’s entirely possible to have no GI symptoms and test positive for this bug.
Mold can pop up in the most unlikely places, places we don't think to look. My guest today is here to talk all about finding dangerous black mold in your home, car, office, etc., and how to handle it. My guest today is Toréa Rodriguez. After completing her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry, Toréa has embodied transformation and self-discovery.
Have you ever heard of ozonated oil? Or maybe you’ve read about the benefits of ozonated olive oil for certain skin conditions? At first, I was skeptical so I decided to do my own research to find out if there was something special about adding ozone to plant oils. Turns out that some really cool research exists already on its antimicrobial capacity!
Many steroid (topical, oral, etc.) users are not given clear guidelines for how to safely use their steroid. This can lead to a condition called Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome (TSW), which can severely impact the skin and overall health. My guest today, Kathryn Tullos is a Registered Nurse from Houston, Texas with a degree in Communications.
