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.
Mindset is an important, albeit overlooked, piece of the skin health puzzle. How you feel about your skin condition can have a huge impact on your skin health journey! My guest today is my colleague, Michelle Nilan, CNS. Michelle is a clinical nutritionist, yoga teacher, and ACSM-certified personal trainer. She is the associate clinical nutritionist in my private practice and has been working with me since June 2020!

We're constantly being told to consume less sodium…but what we're not told is that the quality of the sodium we're consuming makes a huge difference. It can even play a role in how well we absorb water! My guest today is Kaely McDevitt, a Registered Dietitian specializing in women's health. She owns a virtual private practice where she and her team help their clients overcome hormone and digestive issues through personalized nutrition.
Many people don't think twice about applying steroid creams near their eyes to get rid of rashes. But did you know that steroid creams can actually affect your eyes and your vision? My guest today is Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler. He is known as America's TV Eye Doctor, as he's been featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNN, Dr. Phil's The Doctors and many more.
It’s not uncommon for people to ask me “Where is the best place to start working on my skin rashes?” While I have resources in place to help you with that like my Skin Rash Root Cause Finder, I want to give you a bit more of a road map to deal with things.
Mold and mycotoxins can have a huge impact on your health if left unchecked. You may know of the common sources of mold (like damp basements), but mold can also be found in really unexpected places. My guest today is Brian Karr, a second generation indoor environmental consultant who specializes in working with hypersensitive individuals with complex medical conditions.
Skin rashes can sometimes be a sign that our diet and lifestyle needs a change. While I am not a fan of very restrictive diets or long-term elimination diets, I do think dietary changes can be very helpful when trying to improve skin health. My guest today is Hanna Sillitoe, an author and skin healing expert based in Derbyshire, England. Having personally suffered for twenty years with eczema and psoriasis, Hanna now works with people to help them heal naturally through diet and lifestyle change.
Did you know that our eyes are an extension of the brain? It's true! And in many cases, products that are safe to use on the rest of the body aren't safe for use around the eyes. My guest today is Dr. Kelly J. Blodgett, a recognized leader in holistic and integrative biological dentistry, a published researcher, author, and top clinician.
Have you ever tried gua sha or dry brushing? Both these practices are linked to better lymph drainage, which can have a positive impact on skin health! My guest today will explain how. Gianna De La Torre is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist for the last 12 years. In 2018 she co-founded Wildling with Jill Munson and Britta Plug. She also became a mom in the same month that Wildling launched. Gianna still offers facial and intuitive acupuncture sessions in Los Angeles, California.
Today I'm continuing my conversation with Dr. Carrie Jones about licorice root, and whether it is a steroid. We also dive into environmental exposures, adaptogens, glandular support, and more! Dr. Carrie Jones is an internationally recognized speaker, consultant, and educator on the topic of women’s health and hormones.
There has been a lot of controversy recently about licorice root and using it in people who have had excessive exposure to steroids. It's my hope that my guest today will clear up some misconceptions. This conversation isn't meant to tell you whether or not licorice (and other adaptogenic herbs) are appropriate for you. Instead, we're sharing some science behind things so you can make a more educated decision.
When you think of acne triggers, your mind might immediately go to hormones and gut health. But there are some surprising triggers for acne that might not have crossed your mind! My guest today is Lacey Dunn. Lacey is breaking the mold in the “dietitian world” as a fitness professional, bodybuilder, and registered dietitian.
Topical Steroid Withdrawal can make you feel hopeless, because it can be so difficult to control. Plus symptoms that you experience can be incredibly debilitating. I've personally worked with a number of TSW clients who said that the TSW was by far worse than their original skin issue and that some of the symptoms (like hair loss and not being able to sleep) really pushed them to a scary limit mentally.
Acne is frustrating, especially when you can't pinpoint what's causing it. But did you know that your hormones — and not just sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone — can be a huge trigger for acne? My guest today is Vivien Allred, NTP, CNHC, BANT. She studied to become a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist after struggling with many health issues during early adulthood. Getting no answers from conventional medicine, Vivien decided to take her health into her own hands and is now thriving.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, are you able to take the “natural route” to address chronic skin rashes like eczema or psoriasis? I actually get asked this A LOT. Though I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to talk about this, I figured I’d share what the deal is for pregnancy, breastfeeding OR if you plan on getting pregnant at some point in the future!
