Dermatology and Skin Conditions

The skin is the largest organ in our body, and is one of the most common areas where people can use support. Dermatology issues can be very complicated, and very rarely are they ever just “skin deep”. Our practitioners take a close look at the cause of skin conditions rather than just offering temporary topical treatments, and always look at the contributing factors that can lead to skin problems to come up with a solution that works from the inside out.  They try to get a sense of your overall health, with a focus on your digestion, hormone balance, emotional health, and especially your health history leading up to the start of the skin issue.
Our practitioners want to know in detail about your lifestyle, focusing on diet, sleep, stress, and how you are handling stress – all of which play a key role in the development of certain skin conditions. Some of the underlying causes of skin conditions that our practitioners are looking at include poor gut health, food intolerances, environmental sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, immune system imbalances, stress, improper skin care, blood sugar imbalance, and poor elimination or detoxification. Some of our basic treatment strategies include food intolerance assessment, individual-centered nutritional
guidance, supplemental nutrients, homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage, herbal medicine to support detoxification, hormone balance and stress response, patient-specific homeopathic remedies, stress management, hydrotherapy, detox support, and appropriate skin care.

Dr Mandy Reckers ND

Dr. Mandy Reckers, ND

Naturopathic Doctor

Areas of concentration: Gastroenterology, Dermatology, Autoimmune, Thyroid Support, Insomnia, General Wellness & Women’s Health

It wasn’t until I was in the midst of naturopathic medical school that I realized one of my favorite games as a child was to pretend I was some sort of medicine woman.  I would imagine that there was someone who was very sick and needed my help and proceed to forage in the back yard, filling one of my mom’s old jars with various weeds, sticks, and rocks, topping it all off with water from the hose.  It seemed that it was normal for most of the adults in my life to be in and out of the hospital, taking medications, and never getting better.

Dr. Tiffany Bloomingdale, ND

Naturopathic Doctor

Areas of concentration: Classical Homeopathy, Women’s Health, Children’s Health, Digestive Health, & Naturopathic Cancer Support, General Wellness, and Dermatology

Naturopathic medicine helps me be the kind of doctor I want to be. With symptoms and diagnoses come stories—sweeping, miniscule and wild. These narratives are flashlights that help to illuminate who the person is behind the symptoms and diagnoses. Stories reveal our joys, challenges, responses, reactions, longings and fears. I love how the philosophy and modalities of naturopathic medicine find relevance in and offer support to the most personal nuances.

Naturopathic Doctor

Areas of concentration: General Wellness, Gastrointestinal concerns, Dermatology, Children’s Health, Insomnia, Thyroid Support and Women’s Medicine,

In early adulthood, I discovered the connection between your diet and your health.  Upon being exposed to the truth behind factory farming and the food industry I made a huge lifestyle change.  I did a complete overhaul on my diet and I learned how to eat in a way that would nourish my body, mind and soul. In doing so, I found a new passion for nutrition.  I had dealt with digestive issues and acne through all of my teen years and this change in my diet lead to increased energy, healthier skin, and better digestion.
