Your skin does so much for you. Yet, how much effort do you really put into understanding, why it reacts the way it does.
If you suffer from chronic skin conditions, like eczema, psoriasis or weird rashes; uncovering the true causation, is the only way to fully resolve it.
Your skin is your outer most contact with the world. It protects and defines you, allowing you to connect, feel and experience life.
It expresses outwardly what you are thinking and feeling on the inside.
You blush with embarrassment, go red with anger or excitement, pale with fear and shock….
Yet how often do you really focus on how to best support it?
Do you really know what your skin condition's are trying to tell you?
I see so many skin conditions in my practice; eczema and psoriasis, acne, staph infections, herpes, weird undefined rashes and so on.
The first thing everyone does when they develop some sort of skin issue, is try to find something topical to suppress and eliminate the problem. The dilemma with this choice, is that not one of these issue began on the surface.
Every skin condition, first stems from some internal or external toxicity, infection or imbalance. Your skin is like a huge projection screen, on which not only physical, but psychological processes are constantly made visible.
Whether, the cause of your skin condition is obvious like a Bite & Sting, or some unconscious issue like a food sensitivity or an unhealthy state of mind. Helping your skin to get healthy and stay healthy, takes some investigating and lifestyle changes.

To look more Dynamically at a few skin conditions;
Let's say, you've been holding on to a lot of emotional or psychological stress, and the pressure has built to such a degree that you are literally "bursting" at the seams to get it out. Well, Hello Rash! Which is your bodies attempt to try and relieve the pressure – to get it OUT.
How about acne? Everyone knows that acne develops at puberty and is linked to hormones. But are you aware, that it is your psyche that controls your hormones to do it's bidding. Teens that are more affected by acne, are in a struggle with themselves. Honestly what teen isn't!
Puberty, is a time of sexual development, connecting with a partner and growing up. Every one of these can be fraught with conflict, uncertainty, false beliefs, leading to more confusion and possibly shame or embarrassment. Acne expresses quite clearly with red, inflamed spots; a desire to hide oneself. Notice that acne only presents on areas that are in plain sight and the areas most often "touched" in intimate ways.
Back acne, however, is a way for one to protect their own back! A – don't mess with me, kind of attitude as self preservation, while you are trying to develop a sense of who you are.
With Acne, the key is to be open to reviewing your emotional and mental imbalances. Take care of your developing sense of self and individualism. In other words; love and honour who you are!
Another huge skin issue seen throughout all age groups, is eczema and psoriasis. Eczema is often raw and red looking, expressing very clearly a Stay Away, attitude. Psoriasis on the other hand is hard, dry and flakey. Creating a type of armor or protection. This line of defence and self protection often stems from a fear of getting hurt and unresolved grief.
Eczema and psoriasis may initially stem from inherited miasms, yet, they are often triggered by food allergies. If you struggle with either of these, then doing an elimination diet is always the best place to start.
Your skin is your second liver. It helps to eliminate unwanted toxins, emotional and psychological states. This attempt is to help your inner organs and systems run more efficiently.
If you are blocking your bodies attempt at resolving a skin issue on any level, you will never fully heal and eliminate it.

Kit and the Whole Body Detox Kit.
Everything happens for a reason. The key is understanding what that reason is; what is your body and in this case your skin, trying to tell you!
If you try to clean up a skin condition with a topical, suppressive substance like Cortisone. It only pushes the issue back into your internal organs. Thus possibly creating a bigger problem.
In the event of a skin problem or condition, take some time to ask yourself;
1. How am I delimiting myself?
2. Who and what do I fear making contact with, and why?
3. What is it that is really "getting under my skin"?
Love and honour the skin you are in. Trust that it is always trying protect you. Then support it, by listening to what it is trying to tell you and taking the necessary steps to resolve it on every level.
If you are struggling with long standing, chronic skin issues that are limiting your life in some way; I'd be happy to help you finally resolve this issue once and for all!
Remember, true health is the absence of symptoms on all levels; physical, mental and emotional!
