Patient Success Story - How she said goodbye to rosacea



One of our incredible patients in her mid-40s, who had long battled with rosacea, investing significant resources in external treatments. Determined to uncover the root cause, we delved into her unique journey and discovered a pivotal revelation—Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Just after 1 month... As we embarked on the path to rebalance her gut system, the results were nothing short of remarkable. In just one month, she reported a transformation in her skin—more radiance, reduced redness, and fewer flare-ups. And the great thing is she also told me she has more energy and having far better quality sleep. We are currently on the next steps to ensure sustained well-being, preventing any potential relapse of SIBO. What's behind the scene? The gut and skin are connected through a complex network involving the immune system, hormones, and the microbiome—the community of microorganisms residing in the digestive tract.

  1. Microbiome Harmony: The gut houses trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, collectively known as the microbiome. This microbiome plays a crucial role in maintaining balance in the body. An imbalance in the gut microbiome can lead to inflammation, which may manifest in various ways, including skin conditions.

  2. Inflammation Impact: When the gut is not in optimal condition, it can contribute to systemic inflammation. This inflammation can then affect the skin, potentially worsening conditions like acne, eczema, or rosacea.

  3. Immune System Influence: The gut is a significant player in the immune system. A healthy gut contributes to a robust immune response, helping the body defend against pathogens. If the gut is compromised, it can affect the immune system's ability to manage skin-related issues.

  4. Nutrient Absorption: The absorption of nutrients crucial for skin health, such as vitamins A, D, and E, occurs in the gut. An unhealthy gut may hinder the absorption of these nutrients, potentially impacting the skin's appearance and resilience.

  5. Gut-Brain-Skin Axis: The connection between the gut, brain, and skin is known as the gut-brain-skin axis. Changes in the gut can influence the brain and skin health. Stress, for example, can impact the gut and skin simultaneously.

We treat from the cause.

I often observe situations like this;

  • Skin problems - Spending hundreds of dollars at beautician, but the result only last for a short period of time

  • Constipation - Using laxatives or using fibres for 'something natural', but ending up either not seeing much results or end up consuming sugars (lot's of syrups in those fibre tubs!) end up inflaming digestive system more

  • Food intolerance - Avoiding the reacting foods ending up lacking nutrients + anxiety increases feeling like 'there is not much I can eat without flare ups'

  • Headache - Painkillers become best friends. Yet, feels annoyed because sometimes 'painkiller doesn't even work', end up staying in the bed all day.


Take a step back

I would like you to know the cause (and that is the solution!) of your health issues don't always have loud voice and can be hidden. If you are ticking the boxes on the image above, all your ticked issues may disappear by correcting microbiota balance.



I experience it on my own body too

I see my myotherapist every 2 months for maintenance. Due to the amount of pc work I do, my shoulders get quite stiff. But can you believe my myotherapist doesn't even touch my shoulders. Instead, he works on my muscle on the shin - surprisingly it works. He explains how muscles are connected and how my shoulder muscles get pulled - this is the root cause treatment hey. (I am happy to share this therapist's contact if you are around GC!)



Summary

Addressing a single symptom is like seeing the tip of the iceberg in health. To truly understand and resolve issues, it's crucial to dive deeper and uncover the root causes that may be hidden beneath the surface. If you want to glow and feel better in 2024, I will work with you, I am here for you to discover and fix 'The whole iceberg'.


Take care,

Saya
