Natural remedies for sensitive skin, dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis
Ever wonder what natural remedies you can use for sensitive skin, dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis?
With both Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism, I definitely suffer from dry skin, swelling, redness, and inflammation. I have found many skin care products to exasperate my skin conditions.
Check the back labels of products! Avoid certain ingredients like parabens, sulfates, dyes, and fragrances as well as alcohol-based cleansers and products - they can dry and irritate skin further. Not all moisturizers are created equal, so choosing the wrong moisturizer can also make dry skin and certain skin conditions worse. Hydration is key, and using sun protection is very important.

Featured Expert - Functional Nutritionist on Gut Microbiome
We may know February as the month of love. On Valentine's Day - February 14 each year - lovers spoil each other and express just how much they love and appreciate their better half.
But did you know this? From the Latin word Februarius, meaning “to purify“, February was known as the “Month of Purification” during ancient Roman times. It is a transitional time, finding itself just after a month of reflection and new year's resolutions.
Because of this, I wanted to interview one of the experts in functional nutrition here in Charlotte - Rhya Pachin - about gut microbiome and the importance of using food and nutrition to heal the body. As someone with autoimmune caused thyroid issues, I can testify to the power of nutrition (and the times when I slip up and have gluten or any foods I currently have sensitivities to like sunflower seed oil, most nuts, chocolate, and much much more, I get super sick).
Rhya is licensed dietitian nutritionist with an integrative or functional approach, trained to design and supervise customized plans and elimination diets. She helps so many people, including those with gastrointestinal conditions like IBS/IBD and those with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthiritis (RA) and Hashimoto's.
