Why is my skin breaking out?
Hormonal acne is a frustratingly common problem for many women well beyond adolescence. Break outs might be one of the main reasons you first tried the oral contraceptive pill and is likely the reason you struggled to get off it. I take acne very seriously as I know first hand how damaging it can be to self esteem.
What causes acne?
Acne is generally caused by high androgens (male hormones), an increased responsiveness to androgens, increased inflammation in the body or poor detoxification capacity. Several diet and lifestyle behaviours can trigger these responses such high intake of refined carbohydrates, sugars and dairy. Women suffering from PCOS are more likely to suffer from acne due to an increase in androgen production.
How do I get rid of my acne?
There are a range of highly effective dietary strategies and nutraceuticals which work by blocking androgens and helping to keep the pores in skin open and free of excess oil. We can also work to boost your liver detoxification to reduce pimples and acne.

How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions needed to reduce your acne will depend on the underlying driver. If it is a simple fix like improving your detoxification capacity and reducing trigger foods like dairy and sugar, you will likely see an improvement within 1-2 sessions. If you are suffering from a condition like POCS, we may require a few more sessions to bring you back in to balance.
