You can end your clients suffering with functional foods and phytochemicals

You've seen enough clients suffering with skin complaints and disorders to know that most pharmaceutical potions and clinical medications don't work. As a person that used to suffer with horrific soul-destroying eczema there's nothing worse than spending money on yet another 'scientifically proven' medication only for it to not work or make the problem worse.

Sleepless nights, anxiety, depression and becoming a sad recluse are just a few of the psychological side-effects from having unsightly skin disorders. 

I don't know why so many of the prescription treatments don't work. What I do know is that they don't tackle the root cause of the problem, only the symptoms. What does tackle the root cause? Understanding the link between gut-health, nutrition, diet and epigenetics - all treatable skin disorders are linked to nutrition one way or another. Let's start there
