Dermatology

Dermatology is the study of the skin and conditions relating to the skin, which is the largest organ in the human body.   Diseases of the skin are related to disorders within the body.   The skin itself requires anti-oxidants and vitamins internally to function optimally as well as pharmaceutical  compounds that correct the skin externally.  Disorders within the body such as auto-immune disease, leaky gut syndrome, or liver disorders are addressed internally with nutritional medicine.

Case Study

Problem: A middle aged lady presented with pigmentation on the face. Dark melanin patches were evident around the edges of the mouth & the cheeks. The skin problem has been progressively getting worse with age.

Treatment: A skin lightening cream was formulated by combining two melanin fading pharmaceuticals & an exfoliating agent to turn the epidermal cells over. The lady was advised to use a sunscreen ontop of the treatment when going outdoors. She was also advised to change a synthetic hormone tablet which was contributing to the problem.

Result: The lady was pleased with the much improved condition. It is now much lighter & not evident with makeup. Confidence in her appearance has soared.
