Why does fertility treatment improve the health of your skin?

Why does fertility treatment improve the health of your skin?

When I see my fertility patients, rarely does our conversation include the health of their skin (unless there is PCOS present), but I can’t tell you how many times I hear my patients notice an improvement to their skin health during treatment.

My response is the same for everyone; I’m not focusing on your skin health I’m focusing on your hormones and reproductive health. However, when the body is working more harmoniously and hormones are regulated, the skin becomes healthier and clearer.

Hormones impact the entire body and the skin is one of the main organs that will often highlight the imbalance in the reproductive system. If the menstrual cycle is irregular, often the skin will present as dull and dry, acne and comedomes can form on the face, especially around the jawline, skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis can become more prevalent and a generalised increase to the sensitivity of the skin occurs.

As a natural health practitioner, my focus is always how the entire body is communicating as a whole. We don’t segment the body as the body energetically talks as one system. So when a couple seek to improve the health to increase their chances of conception typically I will regulate the hormones to encourage healthier follicular and luteal phases in the menstrual cycle, address reproductive illnesses such as dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, PCOS and so on. This approach is essential to healing the body and returning it back to wellness.

In addition, dietary and lifestyle choices are recommended to encourage the treatment protocol. This often means more nutrient dense foods that are high in antioxidants and vitamins B6, C, D, and E, Zinc, and Selenium which are all nutrients that heal the skin. People are encouraged to limit or omit alcohol, sugar and refined carbohydrates as these foods increase inflammation in the body and counteract conception. Again these foods also upset the health of the skin.

So you can see the approach to reproductive health and skin health is very similar. In fact, I believe we must focus on improving overall health of the individual as opposed to one body system.

So what are the long term effects of Botox.

Once upon a time ageing seemed to only concern those in their 50s and beyond; these days the millennials are perhaps the largest consumers of anti ageing procedures such as botox and fillers. Now we could discuss the ‘Kim Kardashian’ effect but I’d like to focus my attention to something more important, and that is the long term effects of Botox and Fillers on the health of the skin.

Louise Hay states, ““Probable emotional cause of skin problems (hives, psoriasis, rash) is anxiety and fear. Old, buried guck. I am being threatened” in her book Heal Your Body.

Louise Hay believes every disease is connected to an emotion. Over a period of time, this emotion manifests into a dis-eased state, which can be seen in the body as a physiological change to the healthy state of the body.
