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.
Have you ever wondered if protein is good for your skin? For the record… it is, especially if you plan on rebuilding healthy skin. And one thing that I’ve found working with clients is that many people aren’t eating enough protein. In fact, most people are quite surprised to discover just how low (suboptimal) their protein intake is! This macronutrient is critical not just for building healthy new tissue, but for many other things in your body.
Eczema can cause hopelessness, especially when conventional treatments do not work. After years of stress and pain dealing with her son's eczema, my guest was able to not only put her son into remission, but also went on to create natural products specifically designed to soothe eczema flares.
Eczema is a multifaceted condition. There is no single root cause that is the same for everyone. My guest today, a physician who put her eczema into remission, will discuss the impact on food, as well as the eastern approach to healing skin rashes. My guest today is Dr. Pamela Langenderfer. Dr. Pam is a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist who believes that food is the foundation to optimal health.
Living with skin rashes is hell. You’ve probably heard my say this before, but you may not know my personal journey overcoming Dyshidrotic Eczema. Dyshidrotic eczema can affect both the palms of your hands as well as the feet. Fortunately, I only had it on my palms.
If you’ve been really frustrated with that chicken skin (also known as Keratosis Pilaris), you’re not alone. There’s no medication for it, but there is a way to get rid of KP naturally. There are a few important considerations though which I want to highlight for you today. I’m sure your doctor has really only said that this is a skin problem. But the truth is, Keratosis Pilaris is actually a symptom of something else!
Finding the root cause of a chronic skin condition is hard work, especially since many conventional doctors simply prescribe steroids instead of digging deeper. My guest today will talk more about the possible root causes associated with skin rashes. My guest today is Dr. Jerry Bailey. Dr. Jerry is a guy's guy; a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, Functional Medicine Doctor, and dad to two boys.
If you’ve ever been vulnerable enough to share some pretty embarrassing details of what’s going on with your skin, you’ve probably gotten a lot of comments and advice that you really didn’t ask for. Especially when some people have very firm (ahem… pushy) beliefs that dictate that there’s just ONE WAY to solve your problem. I’ll bet you may have regretted sharing.
Chronic skin rashes can be isolating. We often want to shut ourselves away and hide to prevent embarrassment and judgment. My guest today is Steph Gaudreau. Steph believes women have the right to be strong and take up space because the world needs our voices.
Have you been told to try an elimination diet to help your skin rashes? Or maybe you’ve been told to try some sort of diet that’s specific to your skin condition. (Yes, there is an Eczema Diet and a Psoriasis Diet out there.) The problem is that while these diet can be helpful for some, not everyone gets better. Some people get worse.
Lyme disease is the fastest growing infectious disease in the world, yet so many people have symptoms and go undiagnosed. My guest is here to shed some light on this disturbingly common condition. My guest today is Dr. Ingels, ND, FAAEM, a respected leader in natural medicine with more than 28 years experience in the healthcare field. He is Board certified in Integrated Pediatrics and a Fellow of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
Have you ever wished that a doctor would spend more time asking you questions? Or maybe you’ve found the exact opposite — you tend to end up basically word vomiting all over your practitioner without letting them get a word in edgewise? It’s normal to want to share lots of information and yes… generally more IS better. But doing it in a more systematic fashion can be easier for your practitioner to put your skin rash and health clues together.
Perioral dermatitis is an incredibly frustrating skin condition because it is so difficult to treat. My guest today has some tips for reducing perioral dermatitis flares.
The truth is that chronic skin rashes issues like eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, rosacea, lichen sclerosus, etc. are complicated. You’re clearly not one of those lucky people who discovered ONE THING that made their rashes a thing of the past. I certainly didn’t experience any magical creams or potions when my eczema was in full angry monster mode!
Blood sugar imbalances can be hard to spot. And it might surprise you to learn that well-balanced blood sugar is important for maintaining healthy skin. My guest today is Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, licensed Doctor of Chiropractic with Certifications in Acupuncture, Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, and HeartMath®.
It’s not uncommon to feel really overwhelmed with what you should do with skin rashes that make you crazy. Most people have tried lots of creams available at the store as well as the things recommended by their doctor hoping to get relief. But at a certain point, you may find yourself questioning if there’s something more than the conventional route.
