Health & Wellbeing Podcast #19 with guest Hayley Stockbridge
Acne can be very troubling, affecting your self confidence and at times rather painful. It’s synonymous with the teenage years and often with PMS as well, but it doesn’t have to be. There is so much that can be done to help your skin if you are experiencing acne, including nutritional medicine, diet support and herbal medicine.
A lot of people believe that the only solutions for acne are medications such as the oral contraceptive pill, roaccutane or antibiotics, but all of these have their potential side effects and certainly aren’t for everyone. If you’re looking for a different solution to your skin complaints, naturopathy may be your answer.
In this episode Hayley and I chat about a naturopathic approach to acne, the underlying causes of acne, how to improve your skin with your diet, and more.
Hayley practices at Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and in Stanmore in Sydney’s Inner West. Her major focus is always educating her patients to live healthier and happier lives. She treats women, men and children of all ages and a wide variety of health issues such as weight loss, digestive problems, anxiety/stress, fertility, hormone imbalances, food intolerances and headaches.
