We are so proud of our Haute and Holistic contributor, Dr. Elizabeth Trattner for being featured in Bustle on 7 Weird, But Effective Ways To Treat Your Acne, According To Chinese Medicine. 

“There are a number of ways you can approach treating acne, whether you opt for topical creams, a diet change, or some new skin care products. You may not have thought to turn to Eastern medicine for some advice, but there are some interesting ways to treat your acne according to Chinese medicine. If you’ve tried different tricks and tips and still find you suffer from breakouts, you might want to give your hand at a new unique approach.

‘The beauty of Chinese medicine is that it looks at the root to see what is happening with the patient,’ says Dr. Elizabeth Trattner, A.P., D.O.M. is a Florida and National Board Certified Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture over email. ‘There are several different ways we treat, including herbs, acupuncture, and dietary therapy. All of those facets will have a treatment woven together to help balance and fix the patient’s acne.’

In Chinese medicine, acne is most often seen as “heat” in the lung and stomach meridians, according to the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences. Excess heat in the body rises up to the face. Another cause of acne in Chinese medicine is dampness. ‘Dampness is caused by too much cold food, oily food, dairy, and processed foods that allow the body’s energy to not transform and transport nutrients,’ says Trattner.

With all that in mind, you might want to try some different remedies to help balance your body out.”
