In this video, Dr. Huntoon discusses what your symptoms indicate and what you should be aware of when making a choice with your health.

Having any symptom is NOT NORMAL. Understanding what the symptom means and supporting balance within the body is prudent for health.

Skin Health is a reflection of your overall health.  Having Rosacea is quite alarming for those who have it.  Making sure to have a proper evaluation and appropriate conservative care versus some of the radical Medical care is important to consider.  Lifetime suppressive medication is not the answer!

Rosacea

Rosacea is a common disorder that mainly affects skin on the face.

It causes redness on the

  • nose,
  • chin,
  • cheeks, and
  • forehead.

Over time, the redness can become more intense, taking on a ruddy appearance. Blood vessels may become visible.

In some cases, rosacea appears on the chest, back, or neck. It can affect the eyes, causing them to feel irritated and to appear bloodshot or watery. People with rosacea can also develop red solid bumps and pus-filled pimples. The disorder can cause the nose to take on a bulbous, swollen appearance called rhinophyma.

Causes

CAUSES

The Medical profession states the cause of rosacea is not known; however, different theories exist.

One theory is that rosacea may be a component of a more generalized disorder of the blood vessels.

Other theories suggest that the condition is caused by microscopic skin mites, fungus, psychological factors, or a malfunction of the connective tissue under the skin. 

Although no one in Traditional Allopathic Medicine knows for sure what causes rosacea, some circumstances and conditions can trigger it.

What Are The Signs and Symptoms of Rosacea

Signs and Symptoms of Rosacea

Rosacea's appearance can vary greatly from one individual to another. Most of the time, not all of the potential signs and symptoms appear. Rosacea always includes at least one of the primary signs listed below. Various secondary signs and symptoms may also develop.

Primary signs of rosacea include:

  • Flushing. Many people who have rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. The facial redness, which may come and go, often is the earliest sign of the disorder.
  • Persistent redness. Persistent facial redness may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
  • Bumps and pimples. Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop in rosacea. Sometimes the bumps may resemble acne, but blackheads are absent. Burning or stinging may also be present.
  • Visible blood vessels. Small blood vessels become visible on the skin of many people who have rosacea.

Other potential signs and symptoms include:

  • Eye irritation. The eyes may be irritated and appear watery or bloodshot in some people with rosacea. This condition, called ocular rosacea, can also cause styes as well as redness and swelling of the eyelids. Severe cases, if left untreated, can result in corneal damage and vision loss.
  • Burning or stinging. Burning or stinging sensations may occur on the face and itchiness or a feeling of tightness may also develop.
  • Dry appearance. The central facial skin may be rough, and thus appear to be very dry.
  • Plaques. Raised red patches may develop without changes in the surrounding skin.
  • Skin thickening. In some cases of rosacea, the skin may thicken and enlarge from excess tissue, resulting in a condition called rhinophyma. This condition often occurs on the nose, causing it to have a bulbous appearance.
  • Swelling. Facial swelling can occur independently or can accompany other signs of rosacea.

Signs and symptoms of rosacea may develop beyond the face, affecting areas including the neck, chest, or ears.

Traditional Medical Diagnosis and Treatment Options

DIAGNOSIS

Your doctor will conduct a thorough exam of signs and symptoms and will ask questions about your medical history. Tell your doctor about any problems you are having with your face (redness, bumps or pimples, burning, itching, etc.). There is no specific test to diagnose rosacea.

Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea treatment may vary depending on a person's signs and symptoms. Treatments used for rosacea include:

  • Medications. Sometimes, doctors prescribe oral and topical medications to treat the disorder's associated bumps, pimples, and redness. Medications can bring the condition under control and keep it in remission (the disappearance of signs and symptoms).
  • Surgical procedures. Doctors can remove visible blood vessels, limit the amount of extensive redness on the face, or correct nose disfigurement in some cases.

Dr. Huntoon's Alternative Medical Treatment Options

Dr. Huntoon has worked with many people, old and young alike, who have presented with the diagnosis of Rosacea.  Continue reading below to understand what can be done to address the CAUSE of this very common, but not normal, health concern.

ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS

We do not recommend taking medications for this concern as a long term solution.  Many of the recommended medications affect your large intestine and lungs, which is the controller of overall skin health.  These include the steroids and the antibiotics, both of which will affect the health of the large intestine and lungs in a negative way.  Making sure these two parent organs are healthy and functioning in a normal, healthy fashion is paramount to your skin condition.  Taking suppressive medication will also affect the health of your liver.  This too will lead to more skin concerns.

We recommend a specific whole food supplement designed to stop the inflammatory and autoimmune attack on the skin, along with some other anti-inflammatory whole food supplements to support the skin's ability to begin healing.

Specific application of Shea Butter infused with the Essential Oils of Frankincense and Myrrh to the areas affected will help to create normal skin tissue, as this formula has demonstrated a return to normal healthy skin over time.  The application, done daily as a health regime, is recommended.

Dietary changes

Proper dietary advice under the direction of your Holistic Chiropractor helps eliminate the development of Skin disease in any part of the body.  Since the skin is a direct reflection of your true feelings (think someone who is embarrassed and the flushing that happens automatically), it is important to address the suppressed emotions of having this condition and the emotions associated with how the person feels about themselves.  Found in just about every case worked with at our office has demonstrated a lit of repressed and suppressed anger and similar emotions.  These too will be addressed using a powerful technique called NeuroEmotional Technique (NET).   

Some people have found that limiting their caffeine intake, eating a low-sugar diet, or taking essential fatty acid supplements will reduce the symptoms of Rosacea. However, there are no randomized controlled studies that show that these or any dietary changes are effective at relieving symptoms.

Working with a Holistic Chiropractor that understands how to do this for their patient becomes vital for resolution of this serious concern.

Others have benefited by using Acupuncture, Homeopathy and Naturopathy.

Long-term outlook

According to the Medical Profession, the specific cause of Rosacea isn’t fully understood.

Consider that before starting any medical care, as treating something you do not understand, especially with harsh medications known to have side-effects, is not the BEST way to solve a problem.
