Skin Problems

Skin Problem Treatments in Ringmer

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It covers and protects your body. Your skin:

• Holds body fluids in, preventing dehydration

• Keeps harmful microbes out, preventing infections

• Helps you feel things like heat, cold, and pain

• Keeps your body temperature even

• Makes vitamin D when the sun shines on it

Anything that irritates, clogs, or inflames your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching. Allergies, irritants, your genetic makeup, and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause rashes, hives, and other skin conditions. Many skin problems, such as acne, also affect your appearance.

The skin and nervous system share an intimate relationship, which stems embriologically from the ectoderm, one of the first three germ layers in the developing foetus. This connection allows us to interpret the reflex nature of skin and visceral conditions.

The prevailing medical view of skin conditions, particularly those that fall under the heading of ‘atopy’ and acne, is that they are local. The suggested causes of these conditions ranges from bacterial or fungal influence, allergy or autoimmune.

The naturopathic view is that whilst all of these factors may to some extent play a part in the symptomatic picture, the cause is in fact reflex from primary irritation elsewhere in the autonomic nervous system maintained by naturopathic lesioning. This leads to changes in vaso-motor control to the capillaries of the skin and then affects secretor motor function. This is a clever adaptation that signals compensatory adjustments, alerting us to visceral disturbances and should therefore not be treated as an isolated, local event.
