Acne is often a symptom of toxicity in the body. When toxins can not be eliminated through other means, toxins will literally purge through our largest organ, our skin. It frustrates me so much how many medical professionals only treat symptoms and rarely get to the root cause of the problem. I’ve heard too many stories about dermatologists not inquiring in detail about diet, stress levels, emotions, or possible hormonal imbalance, and instead prescribe something to only treat the symptom.
Harsh acne topicals and oral medications for acne are a very superficial way to address acne.
It’s time to take a look at the imbalances which may be occurring within our bodies, and stop focusing so much on the actual blemishes alone. When one is dependent on acne topicals/oral medications for results, true healing has not occured. It is through healing and balancing our bodies on the inside that our skin will reflect that beauty we all desire. Let’s stop looking for quick fixes and take our actual health to the next level. Amazing health correlates with beautiful skin!
I believe that there are five major causes for acne: poor gut health from a diet of processed foods while never detoxing, hormonal imbalances, stress and overworked adrenals, contact dermatitis, and negative emotions usually anger.
There is no quick fix for healing acne because it takes time and consistent dedication to fully heal internal imbalances. True lasting results for healing acne come with addressing all five potential major causes of acne in the first place. It is also possible to have your results fluctuate during the healing process because of the constant life changes we experience both good and bad.
We have the option to look at our skin’s reactions to life as a healing roadmap to witness these imbalances while nurturing ourselves back into alignment. Nurturing ourselves is a much better approach versus emotionally punishing ourselves for our imperfections. Nothing in life is perfect, yet we can fully heal our bodies from the inside out.
