Dermatology 

 

Your skin is an external manifestion of what is going on inside of your body. When you have a chronic skin condition, it indicates that there is dysfunction with one or more of your organ systems. After a thorough investigation, we will identify the stressors that are putting a burden on your system and the reasons behind why your body is susceptible to chronic skin disease.

 

Common causes of chronic skin diseases include food sensitivity/allergy, gastrointestinal dysfunction, detoxification problems, toxicity, poor diet and lifestyle, nutrient deficiency, gastrointestinal or skin infection, hormonal dysfunction, and stress. Once we uncover the root-cause of the symptoms, we will treat you from the inside, out using safe naturopathic modalities to rid the body of these stressors and encourage healing.

Dermatology Diseases We Treat

  • Eczema is the term for a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. Eczema is commonly found in families with a history of other allergies or asthma. 

  • Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful. 

  • Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne most commonly appears on your face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. 

  • Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes your face turn red and may cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne.

  • Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles , which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent. 

  • In addition to the specific diseases listed here, we have the ability to treat most dermatology-related diseases. There are many factors that can affect the functioning of the dermatological system, including physical and emotional stress, gastrointestinal dysfunction, infections, genetic mutations, food sensitivity/allergy, heavy metal toxicity, poor diet and lifestyle, lack of exercise, and more. For most dermatology-related conditions, improvement of overall health is the first step.

Dermatology Treatment

  • The 4R program is a four step program for healing gastrointestinal dysfunction. Because skin diseases are often directly related to gastrointestinal dysfunction, we have to address this dysfunction in order to heal the skin ailment. The four steps of the 4R program are: 

    1. RID: food sensitivities and allergies, infections, poor diet, stress

    2. REPLACE: digestive enzymes, Hydrochloric acid

    3. REPAIR: restore the health of the gut mucosa using herbs, food, and nutrients

    4. REPLENISH: replenish the gut flora using specific strains of probiotics and food

     

    In this 4R Program, we utilize a variety of treatments, such as supplements, herbs, homeopathy diet modification, detoxification, colon hydrotherapy, and more.

  • Supplements, herbs and homeopathy can address the root cause of skin disease and also act medicinally to alleviate the symptoms and protect the body from further damage, while the root cause of the symptoms are also being addressed. After evaluating you with an extensive intake, physical exam, and laboratory testing, Dr. Fong will prescribe a customized treatment plan for you. The eventual goal for you is true overall system balance, where you will not need any support, conventional or naturopathic, because the "root cause" of the imbalance has been addressed.

  • Skin disease is directly related to a high toxin load in the body. Your gastrointestinal and urinary tracts are the "highways" that the toxins take to leave the body. If these highway is not working properly (i.e. constipation, bloating, diarrhea, kidney issues, etc.), then there will be a "traffic jam" that leads to increased toxin load in the body. When the toxins cannot exit through the urine and the stool, the next place they will try to exit through is the skin. Therefore, most skin disease is directly related to a high toxin load. We offer a la carte detoxification treatments that support gastrointestinal health, including colon hydrotherapy, colon implants, and liver/gallbladder flushes, as well as general and customized detoxification programs to address the root cause of your disease.
