Dr. Julie Greenberg is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) and Registered Herbalist RH(AHG) who specializes in integrative dermatology.

They discuss how integrative dermatology looks at skin issues, starting at the gut. Dr. Greenberg breaks down the science and provides the full story when it comes to things like “hormonal” acne, face mapping, sunscreen, and expensive “anti-aging” products. Her multi pronged approach to healing skin concerns and promoting skin health includes the use of herbs, food, hormone and gut testing, and supportive hydrogels like Active Skin Repair. If you’re looking to better understand how to take care of your skin using tips you likely won’t get from a conventional dermatologist,  this is a must listen!
