Your Skin, Diet & Endocrinology

Wanting great ways to improve the health of your skin?

Improving your diet with clean eating, along with well-suited supplementation, helps to achieve the most effective ways to balance your hormones.

It is important to acquire natural supplementation because many people are deficient nutritionally. Investing in B12-methylcobalamin, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (folic acid), vitamin D3, probiotics and trace minerals is a great way to optimize your health.

The Delgado Protocol Inc., encourages everyone to continually learn how to further personalize a regimen to establish hormonal balance.

Hormones function as chemical messengers that are produced in organs such as the ovaries, adrenal glands and thyroid glands. Sex steroid hormones, thyroid, and growth hormones are involved in many different functions such as growth, immune, reproductive and metabolic functions, and even hunger and stress.

The endocrine system produces and regulates hormones which decline with age (Claudia Aguirre, M.D.). Skin conditions appear during adolescence and are worsened as the body attempts to metabolize increased amounts of these hormones.

Unlike extrinsic aging, which requires external factors like ultraviolet (UV) radiation, lifestyle choices, and pollution to cause deep wrinkling and photo damage, intrinsic skin aging is governed by our own body’s biological clock. Dryness, fine wrinkling, and paleness are all part of the natural process of skin aging.

Many factors are involved in intrinsic skin aging: genetic mutations, increased inflammatory signals, decreased lipid production, and decreased hormone levels. These hormone changes are now being more closely examined to reveal just how important it can be to the health of your skin.

Mastering your health is one of the keys to a successful life. Dr. Nick Delgado’s methods of natural healing through lifestyle medicine truly go beyond traditional medical education through the study of observations in identifying physical responses to outside influences.

Acne is such an inflammatory response. Acne should be viewed as a hormonal disorder that is present in nearly 80{26cc0ed11e2bb6722aeee461b889fb0a3f7e0a26d72d2ac41cff8364d94a8d9c} of people exposed to the Western diet.
