WRINKLE REDUCER MOISTURISER

                   BEFORE​​                                                      AFTER

 

This client's skin would react like this after drinking wine and sometimes other alcohol.  HOWEVER, it turned out wine wasn't the problem (thank heavens !).

 

It turned out she had a number of food intolerances, in particular eggs, dairy, garlic and sesame.  When these foods were avoided, the improvement her skin was immediate (she also suffered quite bad acne on her chest and back and sebaceous cysts which never returned following the food eliminations).

 

Wine contains natural high levels of histamine which can precipitate an allergic response if the body is unable to break it down, in this case it was the catalyst not the cause.

 

After about 6 months of food avoidance and supplements to heal the leaky gut and reduce the histamine response, she was able to reintroduce the intolerant foods (even eggs which was a strong allergy) a couple of times a week without reaction.

 

It was a great result considering she had suffered like this for about ten years before coming to see us.

                                BEFORE                                                                AFTER

 

This client had this rash for 3 years and tried many treatments to no avail.  Peter prescribed his classic GREEN CREAM formula for topical application some moderate dietary changes and  NO OTHER MEDICINE. 

 

The rash was resolved within 3 months and has not returned 3.5 years later.

 

It was a classic case of how successful Peter's topical treatments are.  He has developed a range of ointments and cleansers over 6 years of treating skin conditions.  As needed he alters them for individual conditions.

 

Skin problems usually return unless the triggers and exascerbating factors are indentified and treated with ingested medicines. However, not everybody wants a consultation.  In these cases our ointments almost always clear the rash etc when it presents, EVEN IN THE CASE OF PSORIASIS.

 

Most naturopaths will tell you psoriasis is hard to treat, Peter's success rate with this condition is approximately 95%.

 

TREATING THE CAUSES AND EXACERBATORS OF SKIN CONDITIONS IS THE KEY TO MY SUCCESS

 

FOOD INTOLERANCES

We test for food intolerances to 96 food groups. When the lab report comes it specifies which foods are causing and exacerbating the inflammatory immune response. By eliminating the ‘Intolerant’ foods and repairing the gut damage caused by the inflammation I am able to resolve most cases.

HIGH HISTAMINE PEOPLE

Low levels of the enzyme that breaks down HISTAMINE results in inflamed skin condtions. There are foods that increase this enzyme. The result is that they become less reactive to their “allergies”!

I show how to avoid high histamine foods and use foods that help break down your high histamine levels.

GUT FUNCTION

The right probiotic is paramount. People have various responses to many of the different strains of probiotics and I find the right one! For example many people produce the acid forming D-lactate from carbohydrates in which case they should avoid certain types of probiotics.

Some cases only need the right probiotic strain and their skin clears up.

STRESS and HISTAMINE

STRESS Causes ‘mast cell degranulation’

 i.e. Histamine release >> = Inflammation.

Nervine herbs, neurotransmitter supplements and Homoeopathics deal very effectively with how the body copes with high stress levels.

 

Common Sense Skincare

 

We also have a range of products to maintain healthy skin when there is no overt pathology.

 

STOP PUTTING DAMAGING CHEMICALS AND PRESERVATIVES ON YOUR SKIN AND THEREFORE INTO YOUR BODY AS WELL.

 

 

 

FACIAL CLEANSER

 

Containing Black Sesame Oil and French Alpine Lavender.  Removes excess oil, dirt, skin cells and makeup without stripping the natural oils from your skin.  Actually reduces the oil production as your skin does not have to produce so much to maintain its moisture level.

 

It has a strong antioxidant effect reducing damage to skin cells and a natural SPF protecting skin from damage due to daily sun exposure.

 

Skin feels so soft after use you don't even need to moisturise !

 

pH BALANCING TONER

 

With distilled Witch Hazel, Myrrh, Calendula and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the "mother".

 

Witch Hazel and Myrrh are two of the strongest astringents known to herbal medicine to reduce pore size, improve tissue firmness and reduce excess secretions.

 

Calendula reduces skin irritation and improves collagen production, useful in acne and acne scarring.

 

Vinegar may seem a strange addition, but the ideal pH of the skin is slightly acidic.  This encourages the natural bacterial balance of the skin which protects against staph which causes acne and fungus which causes pigmentation problems.

 

The use of soaps and foaming cleansers strip the skin of its protective oils and disturb this bacterial balance making the skin vulnerable to infection and ACCELERTING AGING.
