Canada's Leading Acne Specialist
I have struggled with acne since I was 12 years old. Like most young girls are, I was put on birth control at an early age to help with my skin, which just ended up exacerbating the problem. In the decade that followed I tried everything. My dermatologist put me on a plethora of medicated creams and antibiotics, recommended facials, peels, masks, laser treatments, and extractions so painful I would cry the entire time- and still nothing worked. I began to think I would be living and suffering with acne for the rest of my life.
Then, I went off of birth control and my acne became worse. I had unleashed a hormonal beast in the form of acne spreading from my face to the rest of my body and I was at my lowest of low points. I felt like I was climbing up a never ending mountain.
At that point, I had tried: Dermatologists, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Naturopaths, Energy Healers, Acne Specialists and Aestheticians all to no avail. Everyone had something different to say and a completely different (and expensive) method to try.
The psychological toll that acne takes is huge. Back then, when I would catch my reflection, I completely hated what I saw. Acne took over every single aspect of my life. I never left the house without a full face of makeup, and even when I did I was convinced that everyone was staring at me and my skin. I felt defeated and because of this my relationships were suffering, my self-esteem was non-existent, and I felt completely and utterly alone. I didn’t think that anyone could possibly understand my struggle.
Through all of the failed treatments and struggles, I knew this was something I could overcome. I knew had to explore new options that weren’t going to be as easy as popping a pill or applying a cream.
I became completely immersed in Holistic Nutrition and the idea of healing from within. I attended the Institute of Holistic Nutrition where I learned about the holistic approach to health. There, I took in everything I could with a clear focus and from the view of an acne sufferer. As I began healing many internal balances, I began to see real and measurable change. I saw first hand the power of holistic health and knew this would be my calling.
