These conditions can have many causes and triggers such as:
- Prolonged stress
- Food intolerances
- Vitamin B complex deficiencies
- Traumatic events
- Essential fatty acid deficiencies
- Liver congestion
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is also a major component in detoxification. Therefore, if there is an overload of toxins, or the liver, kidney and bowels are not functioning at their optimum, then the body will get rid of these toxins through the skin. There is also a very strong connection between skin health and gut complaints.
Our approach for addressing skin complaints is to understand the root cause of what’s behind it. We use nutrition and dietary intervention to support kidney and liver function, helping your body to detoxify efficiently. We can also offer functional testing to help identify any food intolerances that may be affecting your gut lining (causing leaky gut), or potential nutritional deficiencies. Yeast or fungal overgrowth (such as Candida) can also be the cause for some skin problems, and so supporting gut health is key to improving skin health.
At The London Clinic of Nutrition, we aim to nourish the body from the inside out, offering you a long-term solution for your skin condition.
I have learnt so much more about the whole of myself and what my body specifically needs to be healthy, which became a bigger issue than just the acne – which of course has healed up. And so for all that I can’t rate the service highly enough!
Skin, Urticaria and Hypothyroidism
In late 2014 aged 69 I was diagnosed with chronic urticaria, and sub-clinical hypothyroidism with benign goiter and high levels of thyroid antibodies. I was under the guidance of both a dermatologist and an endocrinologist but wanted to find a health professional to treat this with nutrition rather than medication.
From first meeting Oliver I liked his attention to detail, his professional knowledge and that he really listened and explained clearly. He gathered a detailed history, a food diary and suggested some relatively inexpensive tests which shed further light on what I was experiencing.
With Oliver’s support, taking recommended supplements and making dietary changes I have gradually recovered over the year, and lost half a stone having previously been quite bloated. The urticaria cleared up quickly on a low histamine diet as my gut healed. I no longer need to be as restrictive in terms of histamine in my diet though I eat healthily and will probably remain Gluten Free for life.
My thyroid antibody levels, once 40 x what they should be, are now `negative’ in my latest set of results taken by the `endo’ who said that I am well now and has signed me back to my GP without any prescription medication being necessary. I should add that I kept the endocrinologist informed about working with Oliver, he was happy with the approach and test results were shared.
I have no hesitation in recommending Oliver and the methods he uses. I count myself lucky to have found him.
