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.
When you have a chronic skin condition, staying positive and practicing self-love can sometimes seem impossible. If you're in need of inspiration and encouragement, you're going to love today's show. Today's guest, Nitika Chopra, has been a leader in the wellness industry since she founded her blog in 2010.
There are numerous approaches to dealing with eczema rashes, and today my guest offers a rather unique perspective on natural topical remedies. My guest Abby Lai is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) and the founder of Prime Physique Nutrition, a website that was voted one of the top 20 eczema blogs to follow in 2018.
The concept that childhood trauma could have an impact on adult health seemed very woo-woo to me...that is, until I was schooled by today's guest. Dr. Keesha, the Mystic Medicine Doctor, is an integrative medicine expert, Doctor of Sexology, psychotherapist, Huachumera (medicine woman trained in plant medicine from Peru), and the founder and medical director of the Academy for Integrative Medicine Health Coach Certication Program.
Today's episode is all about bees. Yes, you read right. Some are afraid of them, some think we should save them but aren't sure why...today should help clear all that up. You've probably heard of manuka honey and its potential uses for skin rashes. So it's already established that honey can help!
In this episode, we take a closer look at the potential pros and cons of having fragrance and adulterated plant oils in natural skincare products.
I've spoken a lot on this show about eczema, and today, I'll be expanding on the wealth of information we've already received. Tune in to learn more about the roles of stress and skin irritants in eczema.
Fermented foods have skyrocketed in popularity because they're a great source of probiotics. However, should those of us with skin rash issues be including ferments in our diet? My friend Summer Bock joins us again to discuss.
If you're listening to this podcast, you or someone you know is experiencing angry skin in some form—super dry, red, itchy, burning, cracked, etc. Did you know the ingredients in your skincare products could actually be harming more than they help?
For people with thyroid disorders, the skin is often overlooked. However, many symptoms of thyroid disease can manifest on the skin.
In today's hyper-clean, anti-germ world, we have been raised to believe that all germs and bacteria are bad for us, while this is not actually the case. Yes, some germs and bacteria are harmful, but a much larger percentage is useful to us. And unfortunately, conventional cleaning practices have stripped the skin of its microbiome.
With certain food-triggered conditions like psoriasis, it may seem like an impossible task to create and stick to a diet that is nourishing but also avoids symptomatic complications. It’s different for everyone and finding what works is no simple task. But, as my guest today will tell you, persistence pays off!
I talk a lot about the strong link between the gut and the skin: Skin issues can occur because of gut dysbiosis! What might surprise you is that, like the gut, the mouth has a microbiome! My colleague and friend Trina Felber joins me today to discuss how our oral care affects gut health and, by extension, the skin. Trina is the Creator and CEO of Primal Life Organics, a premier, all-natural dental care company that focuses on oral health as the gateway to internal health.
A lot of people with rosacea are struggling to understand what is causing it. It’s a condition that can make you feel self-conscious and frustrated. My personal experience has taught me that to understand rosacea, you need to understand its underlying causes. One of the major causes, we’re learning, is small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). My guest today, Dr. Leonard Weinstock, is an expert on this and I am so happy he joins us to help break it all down.
It’s sometimes difficult to connect certain conditions on the skin with something that’s lurking underneath the surface, specifically in your intestines. But there are so many direct relationships between your gut health and your skin. My guest, Amy Hollenkamp, has expert knowledge of a particularly little-known condition, SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth).
The skincare industry is a complicated one. Very often, even when you are buying products that say they're for sensitive skin or dry skin or eczema, etc., the products you use are not actually serving you. In fact, they could actually be worsening your skin conditions. Especially if the company is "greenwashing" their branding and message to make it look more natural than it really is!
