womanNurturingFaceCroppedIt’s hard to feel good about yourself when it feels like everyone is staring at your acne.

Acne is the most common skin problem in the United States. In addition to causing physical scarring, acne can also be emotionally scarring, resulting in lowered self-esteem. If you are tired of your acne, and tired of poisoning your body trying to get rid of it, the docs at Heart of Wellness can help with safe, natural and effective treatments that can help you control your acne as a part of a comprehensive natural health and wellness plan.

Conventional acne treatments typically include topical applications and oral medications. Topical treatments can reduce the amount of dirt, oil and bacteria on the skin. While these treatments may reduce the amount of acne, they typically don’t end the problem and the treatments have to be applied daily.

The most common oral medications for acne are antibiotics. While antibiotics can be effective for reducing acne lesions, they can also cause stomach upset, nausea and tooth discoloration. Being on antibiotics long-term can also have detrimental effects on your gastrointestinal and overall health. Other medications such as Retin-A and Accutane may sometimes be effective, but carry side effects that can have serious repercussions on your health.

In addition to having significant side effects and to often being ineffective, standard topical treatments and oral medications are limited in that they are merely focused on alleviating the acne without considering it in the context of your overall health and wellbeing or addressing the imbalances in your health and wellbeing that might be underlying the acne.

So if you are tired of poisoning your body trying to get rid of your acne, and are ready instead to address your acne not merely as a skin problem but as a health concern, we suggest you try some of the natural, safe, non-invasive and generally very effective treatments that the holistic docs at Heart of Wellness have to offer.
