Our functional medicine eczema experts can help you get clearer skin
Do you have itchy and/or inflamed skin? Are you frustrated when your eczema returns after the temporary relief of cortisone creams?
Approximately 20% of the world population is affected by atopic diseases that include eczema and asthma, and depending on the country, the instances are as high as 35%. The development of these disorders are strongly influenced by both genetic and environmental factors such as:
- Food allergies
- Environmental allergens
- Climatic factors such as Heat/Cold
- Genetic Predisposition
Eczema is usually characterised by raised, itchy & inflamed skin and can appear just about anywhere on your body. It may look like a rough red rash or can be spots about the size of a coin on various parts of your body.
You may have been prescribed steroidal creams and told to moisturise regularly, yet nothing is giving you lasting relief. It can be incredibly frustrating to manage!
Determining what environmental factors can prevent or promote eczema is complex, and while many health professionals have a frustrating time managing the symptoms, what we do know is unravelling the underlying causes of eczema is the key to lasting relief.
At Melbourne Functional Medicine, we look at what is the underlying cause of the inflammation and empower you to take the necessary steps to get on top of your skin condition. Our practitioners explore root causes and consider:
- Is it environmental?
- Are there genetic factors influencing your disease?
- Do you have a food intolerance?
- Is there digestive dysfunction?
- Are there pathogens inhibiting the healing process?
- Do you have immune dysregulation?
A functional medicine approach to addressing the underlying cause of your eczema can clear up your skin for good. Imagine feeling happy and confident in your own skin, and finally being free of harmful steroid creams and oily lotions!
