Our epidermis, or, skin is the body’s largest organ. Skin covers and protects us as a waterproof, insulating shield, defending our body against excessive temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. Additionally, skin exudes antibacterial substances that prevent infection and manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium in our bones. Our skin acts as a huge sensor filled with nerves for keeping our brain in touch with the outside world. In response to allergies, irritants, and external pathogens our skins appearance can exhibit redness, swelling, burning, rashes, hives, and itching.
Skin conditions can appear suddenly, or develop over time and become chronic. Since the skin is a detox pathway, skin conditions are often a sign that there is internal toxicity that needs to be dealt with, but these conditions can also arise from hormone imbalances or vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Conditions can include acne, eczema, atopic dermatitis, rosacea, vitiligo, psoriasis, rashes, boils, hives, and raised bumps and more.
At Ananta Health a patient is assessed with the BioMeridian to determine the root cause of the skin condition. There can be many factors at play, including food and environmental allergies, candida, parasites, heavy metals, mold toxicity, and Lyme Disease. It is important to determine what is occurring for each patient, and then addressing the issue (or multiple issues) to clear up the condition of concern.
