gut health and hormone imbalance
Acne is due to an excess production of sebum which creates inflammation on the skin’s surface. This inflammation plugs the follicles and bacteria begins to overgrow. The more bacteria that overgrows, the more clogged the follicles become and the bigger the pimple will get.
Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO)
This is a common root cause for many irritable bowel diseases and irritable bowel syndrome yet it is very under-diagnosed. It’s not an infection but rather an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine which proliferates due to a slow metabolism.
Parasites & Candida
Parasites and candida overgrowth tend to go hand in hand. If you have one, you likely have the other. They are both extremely common, can cause many irritating symptoms and are usually the result of a slow metabolism.
Leaky Gut & Food Sensitivities
Also known as intestinal permeability. It is when the tight junctions of the small intestine wall have become loose allowing bacteria, viruses, antigens, toxins, immune complexes and/or large food particles to leak into the bloodstream.
