Herbal supplements

 

As a result of the experience gained through treating skin, we at Skin for Life understand the importance of treating a skin condition from the cause to enable lasting results. The introduction of the herbs is a way for us to support our results by providing solutions to balance the function of the body.

We commonly recommend the Digestive Tune-Up, as a treatment for a poor functioning gut, which is very common and often a major contribution to many skin conditions like acne and rosacea.


Digestive Tune-Up

  • Gut Clear x3am, 3xpm (this limits any overgrowth of bad bacteria in the intestines)

  • Gut Bug x3am, 3xpm (this will limits the amount of parasites that lodge into the walls of the intestines. These can come from tap water or travelling)

  • 2x Helicox after each meal 3 times per day - even if they don’t eat breakfast they still take it. (This cleans out the stomach)

  • 2x Candex twice per day. Please ensure clients are drinking at least 2-3 litres of water per day (Candex features calcium undecylenate, a fatty acid that helps keep Candida from converting to its invasive fungal form, as well as an enzyme blend formulated specifically to counteract the growth of Candida albicans and improve the intestinal microenvironment).

NOTE: Please cut out all wheat, dairy, yeast, gluten and sugars from diet.

All of the above must be taken with HOT WATER (cup of tea hot)


The importance of good gut function

The gut contains trillions of bacteria, which help to break down nutrients so they may be absorbed into the body. Poor gut function will not allow you to properly break down food and therefore you will not absorb the appropriate nutrients. Long term this will have detrimental effects on an individual’s health. First signs clinically are people often feel very tired. It doesn’t matter how good your diet is or how many vitamins you take it you don’t absorb properly, you will not, feel good or have optimal health.

The Gut has its own nervous system and also its own enteric endocrine system. We speak of gut reactions. Up to 90% of our serotonin is produced in the gut, serotonin is our feel good hormone, and therefore depression anxiety stress would also have a link to gut function.

The enteric immune system, mucosal immunity, much of the work of the immune system happens in the gut. Beneficial bacteria in the gut can boost the immune system and prevent allergic inflammation and food allergies.

Think of your digestive system like a garden, if you have a garden that is overgrown with weeds and snails and other unbeneficial bugs, it does not matter what seeds flowers or vegies you plant they won’t grow. The weeds will strangle them and rob them of their nutrients. The gut is the same. Good or beneficial bacteria are very fussy, they will only survive and flourish in the right environment, so if there is an overgrowth of bad bacteria and parasites in the gut it doesn’t matter how many pro-biotics we take as the environment is not right for the guts beneficial bacteria to survive. Hence why the digestive tune up is a program designed to eliminate the overgrowth of bad bacteria and repair the linings of the digestive tract and regain the appropriate environment for the good bacteria to flourish. Like weeding the garden and then fertilising the soil we plant the plants we want to flourish.
