An Integrative Approach to Eczema & Psoriasis

August is Psoriasis and Eczema month and we are rolling out a variety of informational material across our social media channels. Be sure to follow us on InstagramFacebookYoutube, and Twitter for daily information that has the potential to be life-changing! When it comes to the treatment of psoriasis and eczema, the conventional approach varies drastically from the integrative approach (no surprise there). Today, I want to highlight these differences and help provide greater insight into some of the potential root causes of psoriasis and eczema.

The Conventional Approach: Most conventional approaches to these health concerns assume several things:

  1. Your condition will continue to worsen over time.

  2. Conditions like psoriasis and eczema cannot be reversed.

  3. The best option you have is to treat symptoms regularly with ointments and medications.

This method leaves individuals feeling as though they were unlucky victims of this unfortunate illness. However, this could not be further from the truth! The Integrative Approach: An integrative doctor or practitioner will seek to identify potential root causes of your psoriasis or eczema and work to heal up those underlying factors while helping reduce symptoms along the way. Below are 5 potential root causes of these illnesses:

  1. Leaky Gut, Gut Infections, Candida

  2. Inflammatory Diet

  3. Toxic Overload

  4. Infections

  5. Stress

An integrative approach to treating psoriasis or eczema will run tests to identify if you have any of these underlying causes manifesting within your body. Here at the Center for New Medicine, we utilize a variety of advanced testing as well as cutting-edge treatments to heal gut problems, eliminate infections, reduce toxins on the body, and reduce overall stress. If you or someone close to you is struggling with psoriasis/eczema and is feeling disheartened at the results of conventional treatments, consider an integrative approach! Again, tune in to our social media channels as we will be providing more information on each of the 5 potential root causes of psoriasis/eczema throughout the week!
