The Connection Between Skin Rashes (ie. Psoriasis) and Infertility

I'm excited to welcome Jennifer Fugo to the podcast.

We’re digging into skin rashes (ie. psoriasis, acne, hives, exzema) and the link to infertility

She has a Master’s degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport and is a Certified Nutrition Specialist. Her work has been featured on Dr. Oz, Reuters, Yahoo!, CNN, and many podcasts and summits. Jennifer is an Amazon best-selling author and the host of the Healthy Skin Show.

If you are struggling with skin issues such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, rashes or hives...it's time to stop treating the symptoms and get to the root cause.

You may be wondering what does my skin condition have to do with my preconception health and infertility?

Remember infertility does not happen in a bubble. The functional approach seeks to understand WHY and get to the root cause.

Especially with psoriasis (which as you may know is an autoimmune disease). Skin conditions are a HUGE clue as to why you may be struggling to conceive.

So whether you have PCOS, low AMH, unexplained infertility, premature ovarian insufficiency and more...it is time to look at your whole body and not treat the skin condition with topical creams and medication...which may be helpful (but does not address the underlying reason - so it will keep coming back!)

In this episode you'll learn:

1) We’ve talked about leaky gut – but have you heard of leaky skin? You’ll learn about the skin microbiome and how it communicates with your gut flora

2) If food sensitities can trigger skin rashes. Why nutrient deficiences are commonly missed and why this is so important for fertility and health. Bloodwork we can request to see what is happenig with skin issues (hint these are clues when they are not at optimal levels) ie. vitamin D, zinc and full thyroid panel (includes antibodies).

3) Some of the hidden root causes of chronic skin rashes such as psoriasis, eczema, rosacea and hives. And why would that matter for someone struggling with infertility. (ie. gut infections, SIBO and autoimmunity).
