Skin Conditions Generally Indicate That Something More Severe is Going On
A skin condition, rash, irritation, or acne is almost always a sign that something else in the body needs help. Progressive can help heal you from within.
“I had seen many dermatologists, but they didn’t have solutions for me. At Progressive, they determined I likely had a food sensitivity causing the bumps on my skin… turns out I had a mild allergy to almonds & salmon…two staples of my diet. Within 4 days of eliminating them from my diet, my skin was smooth again” -Karie B., Progressive Patient
Progressive finds that many skin conditions are the result of a food sensitivity, inflammation going on elsewhere in the body, or other imbalances like bacteria/candida in the body. By treating the root cause, Progressive looks to solve both skin conditions of many types, as well as the underlying causes. We are experts in treating many skin conditions. In addition, we also offer natural facial spa services and anti-aging skincare programs.
Types of Skin Conditions Treated
A few examples of skin conditions we treat are:
Psoriasis manifests most commonly as a skin condition. While it is an “annoying skin condition,” it may be easy enough to deal with even if it is inconvenient. However, while conventional psoriasis treatment might work temporarily, it doesn’t fix the root cause of the issue. If left untreated, the root causes of psoriasis may lead to psoriatic arthritis, an inflammation of the joints that affects approximately 30 percent of all psoriasis patients. Hence, it’s important to treat the root cause and not just the symptoms!
Let’s get to the root cause: It is ACUALLY a chronic, autoimmune condition. It causes inflammation in the body as well as abnormal skin conditions. While normal healthy skin goes through cell turnover once a month, psoriasis causes the skin cells to produce way too fast… they actually end up piled on top of each other.
Progressive gets to the root cause of what is triggering psoriasis & autoimmune responses in your body. We look especially to dietary indicators like inflammatory foods and food sensitivities. We also test for any other factors that may be triggers. Stress, poor diet, leaky gut, and vitamin deficiencies may all be at play. Our practice also provides many anti-inflammatory treatments and therapies to help manage and control your psoriasis, customized to your particular indicators.
Eczema affects the skin’s ability to provide protection from bacteria, irritants and allergens. That means skin can be affected by environmental factors, irritants, and allergens.
Symptoms may include
• Dry skin
• Raw, sensitive, or swollen skin from scratching
• Itching, especially at night
• Small, raised bumps
• Thickened, cracked, scaly skin
• Red to brownish-gray patches, especially on the hands, feet, ankles, wrists, neck, upper chest, eyelids, and inside the bend of the joints
Atopic dermatitis typically flares periodically and then clears up for a time, even for several years.
Treating eczema is typically a multi-pronged approach, involving non-irritant body products, non-irritant household cleaners, diet modifications, nutritional enhancements, and other specialty therapies. Through our advanced diagnostics, Progressive practitioners can get to your root causes.
