What is acne?

Acne is a distressing and persistent skin condition caused by hormones stimulating the sebaceous glands to produce sebum, which leads to the pores or follicles getting blocked and infected: this results in “spots”, generally located on the face, neck and chest.
It is not fully understood why some people have acne and excess androgens, but it is clear that acne is linked to hormones levels.

Acne and teenage

At puberty, the body starts producing more hormones, and it is a time where these latter have yet to find the right balance. Acne is distressing as it often affects self-image and confidence.

How can Herbal Medicine help?

Herbalists treat the person and not the skin lesions only, and encourage the body’s natural ability to heal. There is therefore no set “herbal cure” for acne. The herbalist will give each person a different treatment.

The herbalist will take into account your health history, state of mind, diet, lifestyle, and mindset to decide on the most appropriate combinations of herbs for you.

Part of the strategy will include certain actions which are important in acne.

Acne generally responds well to herbal treatment.

Why use Herbal Medicine?

Herbal medicine does more that temporarily suppressing your symptoms, it helps the body regain its balance and therefore has a lasting effect.
Herbal medicine is natural, safe and effective.
