Problem Skin

Steroid creams will never fix your psoriasis. Healing your gut might.

Steroid creams will never fix your psoriasis. Why not?

The same reason putting a band-aid on your heel doesn't fundamentally fix the problem of ill-fitting shoes.

To genuinely fix something, you must find the source of the problem.

Psoriasis (along with eczema) is an autoimmune condition.

There is a silent villain at large, attacking the skin of people who suffer with such problems...

Called "leaky gut"

Leaky gut occurs when there's damage to your protective gut wall, allowing toxins and undigested food particles to leak into your bloodstream.

Your immune system then mounts a response to these invaders, becomes over-aggressive, and ends up attacking your own tissues! Not cool, body. 

An over-zealous immune system is prone to causing autoimmune problems.

Your immune system, when working well, acts more like a loyal guard dog. It doesn't bark at every car that drives past, whilst attacking the DHL driver. 

An immune system that causes an autoimmune problem is more like a vicious chihuahua - everything, even your own lovely skin, gets a good barking at, or bite.

Most people have some degree of leaky gut - but people with problem skin have it worse.

However - you can repair your "leaky gut" and work towards improving your psoriasis and your skin long term.

We're experts in addressing leaky gut because it's such a common problem.

Adding collagen, Skin+Gut™ and Organic Liver capsules into your diet helps to restore and rebuild the integrity of your gut lining - reducing autoimmune symptoms instantly when this restoration is achieved.

You can help these specialised proteins do their job by getting junk out of your diet, calming your lifestyle and stress down, getting 7+ hours of sleep, and living a simpler life.

I personally recommend the Skin + Healing stack to anyone struggling with bad skin stemming from a bad gut. Coming from someone who was on steroid creams for psoriasis for 15+ years, this is a wonderful investment. 

I'm steroid cream free for 4 years. I believe I couldn't have done that without collagen, Skin+Gut™ and Organic Liver capsules.
