How to heal your skin?
If you want to heal your skin you have to heal your gut.
The skin is our largest organ in the body and it has the vital role of protecting our insides from the outside world. When skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, pre-mature ageing and dermatitis occur, it usually indicates that there is something else that is out of balance in the body. These conditions are really just a symptom of this imbalance.
Over 80 years ago dermatologists first proposed that there was a gastrointestinal link between skin conditions, anxiety and depression. They thought that high stressed states altered intestinal microflora, thus increasing intestinal permeability which lead to systemic and local skin inflammation. It turns out that they were right and the theory of the gut-skin axis was developed1.
