A New Approach to Treating Acne with Dr. Julie Greenberg | Dr. Lo Show

Welcome to another episode of the Dr. Lo Radio Show! I really enjoyed recording this episode, and I think you will enjoy it as well. 

Today I am chatting with Dr. Julie Greenberg, about the root cause of acne and acne treatments! This is an important topic for me because acne actually led me to naturopathic medicine because I struggled with it so much in high school.  Acne is not treated properly in western medicine. Acne comes from the gut so if you are skipping that piece and just treating the skin, you are missing the whole root of the problem.  

We share and go in-depth into the naturopathic approach to treating acne. The naturopathic approach is a whole different view of acne all about focusing on the root cause. The root cause of acne is gut dysfunction, so in order to properly treat it, we need to test and treat the gut. As naturopathic doctors, we use lifestyle change, diet change, and supplementation. 

If you have been suffering from acne or know someone who is, this show is for you! We share some actionable takeaways for this frustrating condition. 

If you are listening to this episode and you or someone you know are navigating through any of the health issues we discuss, I would be more than happy to support you in the journey! Feel free to reach out to me to continue this conversation: @doctor_lo
