She does food intolerance testing, comprehensive saliva hormone.

Common skin problems include acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Through my clinical experience, I have found that 99% of skin problems are either caused by digestive issues or hormonal imbalance. Because these are amongst the common issues I treat, my patients naturally started to see improvement in skin problems too.
Acne: An estimated 80% of all people ages 11-30 have breakouts at some point. I see so many women who have been put on birth control pills, and men and women who have been prescribed antibiotics and other harsh medications to manage their acne and have never any testing to determine what the problem is. I commonly do food sensitivity testing, digestive health analysis, hormone and pH testing to find the root cause.

Eczema: This is a common skin problem that is caused by an immune reaction similar to asthma or allergies. Like asthma and allergies, it can be treated by understanding the trigger.


Psoriasis: This is an autoimmune disease where your immune system is targeting your skin. I want to know why your immune system is reacting and how we can reverse it. Steroids are the most common treatment and simply suppress the symptoms.
