Treating Skin Breakouts with Natural Methods
Most people depend on modern medicine for all of their general health needs. But long before the advancement of modern medicine, societies depended on natural healing for an array of ailments. Dr. Bret Mosher is an expert in the practice of natural medicine and continues to offer his patients the benefit of alternative healing. At his practice in San Diego, functional medicine is applied to improve a patient’s overall health, feeling of well-being, physical appearance, and the signs of aging. With his vast knowledge of Chinese medicine and natural healing, Dr. Mosher offers patients alternative treatments for a variety of physical conditions, including skin breakouts.
A number of our patients come to us looking for alternative healing for skin breakouts. Many have tried a variety of modern skin treatments and cleansers with no success. These products often contain chemical ingredients and can leave the skin dry and sensitive. Rather than help skin conditions, these products can actually be more harmful for the skin. For our patients in San Diego, alternative therapy skin treatments are available. Dr. Mosher believes that all the systems in the body work together and affect one another. Because of this, treating a skin condition will not be successful without determining the cause of the condition. This involves looking at a patient’s entire health and mapping out their unique biochemistry to determine any imbalances within the body. Patients who have been unable to adequately treat skin conditions with modern medicine should consider the following natural remedies available at Mosher Health:
- Nutrition: Depending on the discoveries made in the patient’s biochemical map, nutritional changes may help patients bring their body back to a more natural balance. Dr. Mosher can determine if there are any food allergies or nutritional deficiencies that may be affecting the condition of the skin and he can recommend a personalized diet plan to address any of these issues.
- Chinese Medicine: There are many herbal Chinese medications that may help improve the condition of a patient’s skin. Herbal treatment allows patients to treat the source of the condition rather than just masking symptoms. Additionally, herbal medication is free of chemicals and is not likely to cause any adverse side effects. After creating a customized treatment plan, Dr. Mosher can determine the most effective form of herbal medication for treating skin breakouts.
- Acupuncture: For our patients in San Diego, acupuncture has been successful in treating a number of different ailments. By placing small needles on key points throughout the body, Dr. Mosher can restore balance and the flow of energy throughout the body. Treating skin conditions is one of the many uses of acupuncture.
- Mental Wellness: Because the body systems work together, it is important for all areas of the body to be in good health. At Mosher Health, we believe that mental wellness is just as important in keeping the body feeling and looking good. As such, counseling is also available at Mosher Health to help free the body of stress.
