If you’re like many of my committed clients who come to me after they tried “everything”, you may (understandably) feel deflated and disheartened.

Gonna go out on a limb here and guess that you’ve…

Tried all-of-the highly promising skincare you could get your hands on, hoping it would miraculously heal your skin

Tried all-of-the cleanses, elimination diets, liver detoxes, but your skin got worse, not better

Tried all-of-the supplements promising clear, glowing skin, but have nothing to show for it except an emptier wallet.

Maybe…

You’ve eliminated all the foods you were told were “bad” for you, yet your skin hasn’t improved.

You’ve been to the doctor’s office and left 7 minutes later with an “incurable” diagnosis, a prescription in your hands and a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach.

You’ve been DIY-ing it, falling down the late-night Google rabbit hole, trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together but are feeling a little lost in a sea of conflicting information. (Where does one begin? What’s the right order of things anyway? What’s the right thing FOR YOU?)

You’ve diligently stuck to the protocols and awful 30-day challenges (looking at you, celery juice) and stuck to your new “healthy habits”… But it’s been months now and you’re wondering WHEN will any of your efforts pay off?

Maybe you’ve gotten to the point where hope is running thin and you’re wondering if there is even such a thing as a natural “cure” to rosacea.

After all, the patriarchal sick-care system will tell you that “there is no cure for rosacea”.

What they MEAN to say? Is that there is no cure in the form of a pill – made in a lab by BIG PHARMA.

What they should really ask? Is “WHY”.
Why is rosacea manifesting in the first place?

(And by the way, have you ever wondered why rosacea manifests mostly in the face and nowhere else on the body? A question easily answered when you dive into the emotional root cause of rosacea.)

Alas, the quick-fix mentality of our pharmaceutical-dependent sick-care system does not ask WHY.

But root cause (aka functional) medicine does.

the Functional Nutrition Framework to healing rosacea

As a Functional Nutrition Practitioner, Herbal Medicine student, Certified Advanced Transformative Coach, and someone who’s personally been on a rosacea healing journey, I’m equipped to work with clients in a unique capacity.

My approach – which is personalized and designed to support each of my clients’ bio-individuality – enables me to get to the root cause(s) of rosacea.

Once we’ve pinpointed the possible root causes (emotional, physical, or environmental), we work to support the body back into balance, so it can heal itself. 

This functional approach is not a quick-fix, “magical pill” approach. It’s a thought-out, holistic approach that yields long-term results.

 

 

My framework rests on a 3 pronged approach:

Investigate

When clients commit to working with me, we start the journey by investigating what has caused the terrain to become a favorable place for rosacea to manifest. Since rosacea is NOT a skin issue but a chronic inflammatory issue, we need to look deeper than the surface of the skin.

A curious, inquisitive mind enables me (and my clients) to look for clues and to map out a matrix that serve as the blueprint for our work. This matrix addresses all the systems in the body, as each one is intricately linked to another. Addressing only one area, such as gut dysbiosis, pathogens, liver or digestive issues for example, is how progress gets stalled. Therefore, adopting a truly functional, strategic + holistic approach is the only path to success.

Empower

Working with me is an empowering process. As your coach and guide, my goal is to equip you with strategies that will bring about long-term, optimum health.

First and foremost, my goal is for you to become self-reliant and able to make healthy lifestyle changes, not from a place of deprivation and discipline, but from a place of being deeply in tune with what your body needs to heal. I want you to get to the place where you can intuitively listen to what your body needs, understand the messages your skin is trying to communicate, and, most importantly, trust in your body’s innate capacity to heal.

This is a huge shift in thinking as it is not something we’ve been taught in school or via the current dominating pharma-dependent medical paradigm. Our sick-care system relies on big pharma to find “a cure” in the form of a pill, which, let’s be honest, has failed us when it comes to healing rosacea.

In order to heal what has been labeled “incurable” we must shift our thinking and strategy.

And it starts with you being empowered to take your health into your own hands.

Implement

Knowledge without strategic action is useless. So implementing lifestyle + nutritional changes tailored to your own unique, bio-individual needs will be key to your success.

Clients who work with me commit to implementing what we discuss during our sessions and to report back on their progress so we can adjust the nutritional, lifestyle and supplements recommendations.

The process is fluid and ever-evolving. We are, first and foremost, responding to what the body needs to heal, and that will change over time.

Everything I do rests on core principles & beliefs:

That we can heal ANY dis-ease if we remove what’s hindering proper functioning, support the body’s innate intelligence and give it the time it needs to come back to homeostasis. (Sometimes the timeframe doesn’t match our expectations and we need to be ok with that. Otherwise, we’re right back into a sympathetic, stressful state which is often the trigger of dis-ease in the first place.)

That the root cause of dis-ease can be physical, environmental and/or emotional. Sometimes it’s one, most of the time it’s all 3. Investigating and addressing all 3 key areas is the ultimate medicine, one that takes into consideration the whole being and brings about true healing.

FAQs

(Frequently Asked Questions)

How long does it take to see results?

Every individual and journey is unique. Some people see improvement quickly, and others take more time.

The goal however is to see improvement within a few months and to keep digging deeper (and adjust your protocol) until we see a shift in the right direction.

 

Do you do functional lab testing?

I usually do not start with functional lab testing as there is a fair amount we can do nutritionally before needing to move on to functional lab tests.

However, if we hit a roadblock, functional lab testing may be the next step in your healing journey.

 

Do you treat or diagnose rosacea?

No. I am not a doctor, therefore I do not “treat” and cannot diagnose. My role is to act as a health coach (my official title is Certified Functional Nutrition counselor) and to guide you in making the best decision for yourself.

 

I'm on several medications, can I still work with you?

I’m happy to work in conjunction with your doctor. This is something we can discuss during your initial consult.  

I've already worked with several practitioners and invested a fair amount money in my healing journey, I feel burn out and discouraged. Can you help?

I totally understand how frustrating it can be. I’ve been there myself!

In all honesty, if you are feeling burnt out and disillusioned, maybe you need break from “the work”. 

Sometimes we try to do too much, we’re in a hurry to heal.

This is understandable, rosacea can bring up other issues we have to face. Ironically…

Often, we try to DO healing and healing isn’t a doing, it’s a being. Healing does not happen in the stressful state, it happens when we stop forcing. It happens when we rest and allow ourselves to be in a parasympathetic (rest and rejuvenate) state. 

I like to remind my clients that their journey to glow is not a race (nor is it a marathon!) and it’s not a place “to get to”.

It’s a process where self-love, non-judgment and patience are the keys that open the door to healing.
