Have you been struggling with acne and skin issues for years, maybe decades and still can’t find an answer? I wish I would have known how deep the connection is from the gut to the skin when I was attempting to figure out my skin issues; I would have had an answer much sooner. The funny thing is, this is not new information, just forgotten.
The relationship between gut balance and clear skin can be traced back over 70 years ago when dermatologists John H. Stokes and Donald M. Pillsbury first proposed a connection between depression, anxiety and skin conditions such as acne. They specifically found that emotional states (stress), like anxiety and depression, have the ability to alter gut flora!
The amount of psychological stress, quantity and type of bacteria in our gut, and how our digestive system is functioning, can all contribute to acne and the health of our skin in general.
