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 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!
