Getting to the bottom of your skin conditions...
There are many possible triggers and drivers for skin problems from acne to psoriasis to eczema to a whole array of lesser known skin conditions which often have their roots in diet, immune, nervous system and digestive health. Common triggers can be viral, bacterial or fungal, or based on contact allergies. Often we fall prey to these things following a period of extreme stress or long term use of particular medications. If you’ve been struggling with a long term skin condition and are not getting to the bottom of it, give us a call or pop in and find out whether we can help you get to the root of the problem. We offer full consultations and a variety of blood testing including food intolerance and allergy testing. Stool testing can also be relevant in some cases.
It’s always great to get a successful outcome and especially when it’s a skin problem as we understand how upsetting this can be and can really affect confidence and self-esteem. This is a great testimonial from one of our recent clients who came and had a food intolerance test to see if he could uncover some important clues. We couldn’t be more delighted for him at the result. Here is what Adam from Aberdeenshire had to say:
Adam's story... "How I got my skin better after 2 years of struggling."
“Two years ago, after returning from a friend’s wedding, I broke out in a rash all over my torso. Initially I thought it was chicken pox, as one of the guests children had this, however it was diagnosed by my GP as Pityriasis Rosea.
The rash cleared up on its own after 3-4 weeks and I thought nothing more of it.
Then a few months later, I noticed a similar 'herald patch' appear on my torso. Initially it was quite small, around the size of a penny. I thought it was the same rash reappearing, and took no notice, as I thought it would clear up on its own as previously.
Several months passed, and the patch continued to grow. It was now 2 inches in diameter and was inflamed and very itchy. I became embarrassed and self-conscious, and was applying an assortment of creams and oils in an attempt to eradicate this, all unsuccessful. My wife then suggested to see a nutritionist as she thought that the rash could have been worsened by a food intolerance, and booked me an appointment that week to see Beverley.
I had a food intolerance test which takes a few minutes, along with a consultation to explain my circumstances, and then waited 1 week for the test results.
I found out that I was intolerant to cow’s milk & yeast, and immediately started to completely remove these food types from my diet. I also supplemented my diet with curcumin to help alleviate inflammation and caprylic acid for its anti-fungal properties.
I was amazed that around 4 weeks later, the rash had almost disappeared and the skin had completely healed. I'm now at week 6, and the rash has completely disappeared. This has opened my eyes, and I firmly believe that with the correct diagnosis, the body can be fully restored from within, with the simplest of dietary changes.
Thank you so much Beverley (and my wife!) for your help, support, and nutritional insight.”
