Our skin, hair, and nails have many important functions. They act as a protective barrier, sensory system, and regulate body temperature. Our dietary habits and lifestyle pattern are majorly responsible for the good health and nourishment of our skin, hair, and nails.
Gut dysfunction can manifest as ailments, and it becomes apparent on our skin, hair, or nails. Our skin is the largest organ that helps in the detoxification of the body through sweat. The microbiome of the gut consists of several bacteria that exist symbiotically to break food we ingest into micronutrients like keratin and biotin. A lack of these can cause nails to get brittle and excessive hair fall. Our holistic way of treatment digs deep into finding the root cause of this deficiency and with the help of functional medicine, we try to reverse the effects.
