Care for Skin Conditions

Skin graphic

Your skin is the largest organ of your body!

It is, in terms of both weight—between 6 and 9 pounds—and surface area—about 2 square yards.

Your skin has a specific function: it separates the inside of your body from the outside world. Nature created it that way to protect you from all kinds of bacteria and viruses, but at the same time, to regulate your body temperature.

There are many conditions that irritate, clog, or inflame your skin. These can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching.

On top of that, allergies, irritants, your genetic makeup, and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause dermatitis, hives, and other skin conditions.

Many skin problems, such as acne, also affect your appearance. Your skin can also develop several kinds of cancers.

Common Skin Problems

Here are some of the most common skin problems:

Acne—A disease that affects the skin’s oil glands. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands make a substance called sebum.

The pores connect to the glands by a canal called a follicle. When the follicle of a skin gland clogs up, a pimple grows. Acne is the most common skin disease; an estimated 80 percent of all people have acne at some point.

A good nutritional regimen with the help of a professional has proven to produce excellent skin results for people of all ages.

 

Eczema—Also known as atopic dermatitis, this is a long-term skin disease. The most common symptoms are:

  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Rashes on the face, inside the elbows, behind the knees, and on the hands and feet.

Currently, there is no single test to diagnose eczema, so doctors rely on information about you and your family.

Also, many doctors trained on nutritional methods have been able to help patients with this condition.

 

Psoriasis – Psoriasis is an immune disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. It is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease.

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells.

It is a chronic disease that often comes and goes, and it can be mild, moderate or severe.
