What is acne?

Acne is a skin dis-ease in which the skin produces pimples, comedomes, or cysts.  Acne typically arises on face, chest, back and buttocks.  It is common in adolescence, yet also present into adulthood.

How can I treat it naturally?

Before a treatment plan can be put in place, we first have to determine the underlying cause(s).

The body is wise and trying to convey to you, using the language of “symptoms”, that something you are doing is not agreeing with it.  Dr. Wells will help figure out what your body is saying and correct the problems.  The internal environment of the body produces an external reflection.  Most likely the cause is due to an internal imbalance in the body.

Dr. Wells will determine the underlying cause(s) of your acne.  Many times acne is a result of eating foods you cannot digest.  This is called food intolerance.  Blood work or other specialty testing may be needed.  Then treatment can begin.

How long before I notice a difference?

Every patient is unique and healing happens faster for some than others.  Treatment protocols usually last from 3 – 6 months to heal the underlying cause.  Most notice improvements within a week or two.
