He is a founding member of the American Academy of Dermatology’s groundbreaking Task Force for Nutrition and Evaluation of Alternative Medicine and is a board-certified dermatologist.

Dr. Dattner has written a number of scientific articles on nutrition and herbal medicine in dermatology. He has lectured locally, nationally and internationally to both dermatology and CAM organizations, and has been quoted in numerous popular magazines and the New York Times.

He has a strong background in research methodology and 47 years of experience in the science of cellular immunology. More specifically, he elucidated key concepts linking environmental factors to inflammatory disease, during three years of investigation of human lymphocyte recognition at the National Cancer Institute in the 1970’s. Results of this work are published in peer review journals and were presented by Dr. Dattner at plenary sessions of the Society of Investigative Dermatology.
Yeast, Leaky Gut & Your Skin
Inflammation can exist in a number of areas of the body, including the skin.

In fact, most skin disorders, like acne, eczema, and psoriasis, involve inflammation.

Probiotics are just a part of the right direction for treating skin inflammation; but, a more complete anti-yeast program is required to resolve these issues effectively.

How are yeast, gut health and skin health related?

According to Alan M. Dattner, MD, the connection is quite clear: yeast overgrowth leads to gut inflammation... gut inflammation leads to leaky gut... and, leaky gut distributes allergens throughout the body. 

Dr. Dattner has been a pioneer for over 30 years in integrating nutrition, dermatology, Applied Kinesiology, and Holistic Medicine into the practice of dermatology, and says that because our culture is so high in sugar consumption, high yeast and high inflammation follows.

Tune in as Dr. Dattner joins Naturally Savvy hosts, Andrea Donsky and Lisa Davis, to share more about the yeast-gut-skin connection, as well as ways to properly address the issue.
