Beyond Skin Deep
Often overlooked, is the importance of skin, a sophisticated, self-renewing organ and our primary barrier against external threats. It also provides physical structure, allows selective absorption and antioxidant storage, controls thermoregulation and stimulates epidermal regeneration when damaged. More than any other body system it faces constant environmental challenges and its condition is based on the levels of general physical and mental health.
In this seminar series we investigate common clinical skin issues with complex underlying pathophysiology, ranging from infectious conditions, to chronic inflammatory disorders such as acne and rosacea.
Common to these conditions is compromised health and integrity of the skin, and requires that these fundamental issues be addressed with naturopathic medicines, as well as the use of topical applications, which for many is a forgotten art.
