Eczema & acne

Eczema

Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that is becoming increasingly common. It is frequently associated with respiratory allergies and digestive problems.

My treatments for eczema are aimed at relieving the immediate symptoms while addressing the underlying causes:

  • Topical remedies for immediate relief
  • Nutritional advice
  • Identifying food sensitivities
  • Herbs
  • Stress management techniques
  • Nutritional supplements

Acne

Acne results from a complex interaction of hormones, nutritional deficiencies, skin hyperkeratinization, bacteria and inflammation of the hair follicles.

My treatment protocol for acne focuses on:

  • Assessing for nutritional deficiencies
  • Nutritional guidance: foods to avoid and foods to enjoy
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Hormone testing
  • Liver detoxification support

“I went to see Shannon when it seemed the prescription treatments for my acne rosacea were no longer working.  As it turned out, Shannon taught me that the fact that I had been taking such medicine for so long may be part of the problem and put me on a controlled and supervised detox programme as the first step in further understanding what may be causing the rosacea.  Shannon’s regimen helped me control the rosacea that I had been battling – and most probably worsening – for years.  Her caring, insightful and well-researched approach made me happy to trust whatever she recommended I do.  It felt like even when I had almost given up hope, Shannon tackled the problem from every angle and made sure she came up with a solution.” — Julie, age 37
