Yeast, Leaky Gut & Your Skin

  • Topic Info: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.
