EP 150 - Skinterrupt: Looking Deeper to Overcome Skin Issues
There is a direct connection between gut health and skin health.

If you suffer from a chronic skin rash and are struggling to find a solution, you may need to look to your gut. If topical creams aren’t solving your issues, it’s likely because the root cause of the problem is much deeper in your body.

Much like leaky gut, a person can suffer from leaky skin. When the body doesn’t get the proper nutrients, the liver becomes overburdened and struggles to clean the toxins out of the body. So, the toxins are released through the skin, causing rashes and eczema.

Jennifer Fugo shares her story and explains how she cleared up her skin by altering her diet. She offers tips on how to identify skin issues and solve them with supplements and diet changes. 

Listen as Jennifer joins Dr. Taz to discuss the connection between your gut and your body’s largest organ—your skin.
