How a naturopath could be the key to curing your acne

Naturopathic medicine treats acne by addressing the cause of the problem rather than its symptoms. Frequently, future breakouts and flare-ups are also prevented by treating the root causes of acne. In addition to treating acne, naturopathic medicine can improve scarring and promote a healthier, more radiant appearance. A combination of this treatment and a balanced diet optimized for skin health should result in smooth, acne-free skin. When you are looking for a trusted Naturopath on the Gold Coast, look no further than Native and Actual.

How Can I Get Rid Of Acne?

The acne process begins in your pores, small openings in your skin that allow your body to release oils and toxins. The number of pores on your body exceeds five million, and there are more than 20,000 on your face. Each of your pores produces sebum, an oily substance designed to protect your skin. When sebum becomes trapped with dead skin cells, it creates pimples.

Difference between dermatological and naturopathic acne treatment

If you have already seen a dermatologist and have tried countless topical and oral medications to treat your acne, you may be wondering how a naturopathic physician is different. The main difference is how we approach treatment.

Dermatologists specialize in treating acne at the skin level. Their treatment often pushes toxins deeper, back into the skin, and does not address the underlying cause of your problem. Although your skin may appear healthy temporarily, it is typically a temporary solution to a much larger problem.

On the other hand, Native and Actual your trusted naturopath Gold Coast is trained to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin. A natural acne treatment addresses the underlying causes of your pimples to eliminate acne permanently. A dermatologist treats patients from the outside-in, whereas a naturopath treats patients from the inside-out, resulting in a genuinely healthy complexion.

Understanding Your Acne's Root Cause

The treatment of acne begins with a pain-free diagnostic test, as with any other condition at Native and Actual. Your naturopathic physician will first want to determine the source of the pimples before prescribing any treatment.

The following tests are helpful in determining acne's cause:

Hormone Test: Saliva hormone tests can identify hormonal imbalances that contribute to acne.

Allergy Test: A reaction to potential allergens ingested or contacted can lead to acne.

Genetic Test: You may be genetically predisposed to acne-causing conditions.

Food Sensitivity Test: Inflammatory foods and food intolerances can contribute to skin problems.

Acne Trigger Removal from Your Environment

Naturopathic acne treatment varies according to your test results. For example, suppose your food sensitivity testing reveals an inflammatory response to certain foods. In that case, you may wish to work with our holistic naturopath on the Gold Coast to develop a meal plan unique to your requirements.

Native and Actual Naturopaths will assist you in identifying your triggers and making balanced decisions. Our Naturopath Gold Coast doctor can offer support for hormone balance, detoxification, and target sources of inflammation for a healthier, cleaner body.
