Dr. Brody’s Natural Approach to Skin Health
Acne is something that can have both physical and emotional components. The physical aspects of pain, dryness, inflammation and leave even the strongest person on their knees when this is combined with the emotional aspect it gets even worst. The fear to fit in and appear healthy and beautiful is a struggle many people have. On a personal note when I was younger I tried everything to get rid of my cystic acne: antibiotics, Accutane, natural treatments, facials, etc. Nothing worked in the long term until I found the root cause. For me, it was wheat and dairy. When I changed my diet and combined a few natural medicines I was able to control my acne and prevent it.

It is your doctor’s responsibility to figure out that reason and remove it so you can heal. There are different genetic mutations such as BCO1, that can predispose you to acne if not addressed. This gene works by converting beta-carotene into Vitamin A in your body. When there are mutations in this gene, a Vitamin A deficiency can occur. One of the symptoms of a Vitamin A deficiency can be acne. To learn what other genes might be at work with your disease process make an Opus23 appointment today!
