I am writing this post due to so many requests asking about Rosacea. There are many factors that cause and contribute to this skin condition and there are some amazing products that can help. Some of which I will list below, but fundamentally, for me I have to look at why these reactions occur, along with environmental, dietary and topical factors there are many internal factors primarily the stomach, duodenum and gut but also pathogenic influences, including bacterias (especially H.Pylori), parasites and fungi.
Rosacea is a condition that causes a red flushing to the skin, sometimes heat is experienced and also small pustular breakouts, in fact there are four types of Rosacea that are categorised as follows:
(ETR) – Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea – presents itself as facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels.
Acne (papulopustular) Rosacea- presents itself with blistery or pustular breakouts, usually affecting middle-aged females. Ocular Rosacea occurs usually around the eye area A rare form of Rosacea, usually affecting males is known as Rhinophyma, presenting itself as a thickening of the skin, resembling a cauliflowering on the nose.
Rosacea causes are unknown, however there are certain things that certainly exacerbate this condition – alcohol, spicy foods and caffeine are among them.
Treating Rosacea under the MRL umbrella is a holistic process, one that involves a full consultation and a good 4-6 months commitment of internal supplementation and energetic testing. However you can certainly get some relief from using a simple program and implementing the following:
Repair+ – An L-Glutamine that is the most abundant amino acid in the body and essential for brain, gut, immune and skin health
