We see skin as the tip of the iceberg. Many skin problems are signs of gut-related issues. Thus, we treat skin by first focusing on the guts.
Why Focus On The Gut?
- What organ of the body produces ¾ of the neurotransmitters?
- What organ of the body contains ⅔ + of the immune tissue?
- What organ of the body contains 10 times more cells than the rest of the body combined?
- What organ of the body has a metabolic activity greater than the liver?
As you can guess, the answer for all the questions was the gut. Essentially, it performs a crucial function in regulating internal states of the body. The skin and scalp, our outer layer, reflects our internal health, which is mostly dictated by the guts.
Inside our guts, numerous microbiomes reside in symbiotic relationships. Antibiotics, pesticides, heavy metal, environmental hormones, industrial chemicals, unbalanced diet, and external chemical toxins can disrupt the symbiosis of healthy microbiomes in our guts. Thus, the disruption is reflected through many skin and hair problems.
