A Functional Medicine Approach to Treating Eczema: The Gut-Skin Connection
Eczema affects over 20 million Americans, and it’s not only infants and kids who are impacted; many adults also suffer with eczema well into adulthood. While eczema is a complicated disease with multiple underlying pathologies, there is abundant evidence that a large part of the underlying root cause of eczema stems from gut microbiome dysfunction. Integrative practitioners’ focus on food as the root cause of eczema is steering them in the wrong direction!
In this course, Dr. Julie Greenberg will present the latest published research on the gut-skin connection and will provide an overview of how to use stool tests and organic acid tests (OATs) to treat the root cause of eczema.
Dr. Greenberg will present an eczema case study with before and after photos as well as lab results. Attendees will leave this talk with an arsenal of new evidence-based clinical tools to confidently treat their patients’ most challenging eczema problems using functional medicine.
