Are you one of those people whose skin gets WORSE the cleaner and healthier your diet becomes? This is one of those things people don’t talk about that can really get someone down because diet changes are so heavily pushed as a one-stop solution to clear up your skin. So if you’ve ever felt like you just didn’t “try hard enough” or “eat clean enoug…
 
Did you know that it is possible for children to become sensitized (and even allergic) to food through the skin? Yep... *mind blown*! This is something that we're learning more about and that blows a hole in the concept that the only way to become sensitized to food is through the gut. My guest today, Jennifer Brand, MPH (Master's degree in public …

I often talk about how nutrition and digestion can play a role in our skin health.

As you might already know, I don't think diet for many with chronic skin rashes is the only tool that should be used to help ac…
 
Did you know that psoriasis is associated with a bunch of other health issues? Things like hypothyroidism, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, PCOS, Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver disease, and liver fibrosis, just to name a few. Many of my clients have no idea about these connections and have unfortunately had their concerns about other health issues blown of…
 
Most times, a skin rash is a skin rash. But sometimes, if the skin condition comes out of nowhere, and if it does not respond to treatment, it could be a sign that something else is going on. And that something could be lymphoma. My guest today is Dr. Peter Lio, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology & Pediatrics at Northwestern University F…
 
Have you had that dreaded diarrhea after you start a round of antibiotics?
