Skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis can be frustrating and painful to live with. Conventional treatments like topical creams and steroids can offer temporary relief, but they often come with unwanted side effects and fail to address the underlying causes of the condition. At the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine, we take a holistic approach to skin health, focusing on addressing the root causes of eczema and psoriasis.
Eczema and psoriasis can cause a range of symptoms, including:
- Dry, itchy, and flaky skin
- Red, inflamed, and irritated patches of skin
- Pain and discomfort
- Cracking and bleeding of the skin
- Thickened, scaly patches of skin
Dr. Mark Stengler offers a range of natural, holistic treatments for eczema and psoriasis, including:
- Nutritional counseling: We will evaluate your diet and recommend changes that can help alleviate your skin condition. This may include reducing your intake of inflammatory foods, such as processed and fried foods, and increasing your intake of anti-inflammatory foods, such as leafy greens, berries, and fatty fish.
- Herbal therapies: We may recommend herbal remedies that can help reduce inflammation and promote skin healing, such as chamomile, calendula, and aloe vera.
- Stress reduction: Stress can trigger eczema and psoriasis flare-ups, so we will work with you to develop stress reduction techniques, such as meditation and deep breathing exercises.
- Acupuncture: Acupuncture can help reduce inflammation and promote healing of the skin.
- Lifestyle changes: We will work with you to identify lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your skin condition, such as exposure to irritants or allergens, and recommend changes to help reduce your symptoms.
