A few months ago, I saw a 24-year-old patient who struggled with acne. Since adolescence, she had tried “nearly everything” to get rid of this skin condition that destroyed her self-confidence. Countless visits to dermatologists, expensive skin care regimens, and several courses of antibiotics had created a few minor improvements, yet she still had acne. You might wonder why this patient with acne would visit a medical doctor who specializes in gut health. But the reality is, everything connects with a healthy gut, including your skin.
