I have been qualified and practicing in clinic for over 15 years in Sydney’s Inner West.
My interest in skin began when I experienced acne as a teenager and adult. I understand the frustrations and effect on self-esteem this and other skin conditions can have. In fact, it’s the main reason I became a naturopath in the first place. After using unsafe and mostly ineffective medications, I eventually learned how to improve my skin by addressing my internal health as well as using safe topical skin care. Over the last ten years, I have been researching and studying theories and treatments for acne and many other skin conditions. I have written articles about skin for Wellbeing magazine as well as co-authoring the book Radiant Health, Radiant Skin, by ABC books. I have written and presented lectures about skin and digestive health in Sydney to practitioners and the general public. One supplement that I have consistently used in the treatment of all skin conditions, as well as improving skin in general, are probiotics. I have always prescribed supplements that contain acidophilus, bifidus, etc, for anyone who wanted to improve their skin condition, because of the strong link between gut health and skin health.
When I came across Carla’s product Glow – I was so excited, because finally here was a product that was not only a powerful probiotic, but also super-nutritious and packed full of antioxidants. I had been using at least 3-4 products to get the effect from her one product – GLOW. I am now a member of Carla’s team and whole heartedly recommend these products for many types of skin conditions and for general skin improvement.
