Acne is the most common skin condition that both children and adults suffer from. Naturopathic Medicine focuses treatment on the root cause for each individual. The most common contributing factors include stress (anxiety, depression, insomnia, money, relationships, etc.), hormonal imbalances, food sensitivities, bacterial infection, vitamin/mineral deficiencies and constipation.
Throughout my private practice as a Naturopathic Doctor for over the past 8 years, I have successfully treated acne in babies, children, and adults, both male and female.
Naturopathic Medicine is very effective at treating all types of acne. The modalities I use, as you can see, vary depending on the root cause of the skin condition. Most commonly I utilize botanical medicine, homeopathy, blood testing for hormones and vitamin/mineral deficiencies, food sensitivity testing, natural topical treatments, and psychological counseling.
