Ep 49 with skin specialist and clinical nutritionist Jennifer Fugo

Eczema, psoriasis, hives, dermatitis, rosacea… have you ever dealt with a chronic skin rash? If yes, I know your misery. And so does this week’s healthHacker’s expert guest - more so than most. As a functional clinical nutritionist specializing in chronic rashes (and who’s suffered with her own painful skin issues) Jennifer Fugo is the go-to practitioner for her clients who are trying to figure out what’s underlying their rashes, plus any accompanying symptoms, like brain fog, chronic fatigue, autoimmunity and gut health issues.

It was Jennifer’s experience of successfully improving her own painful eczema that inspired her to help others figure out the root causes of their chronic rashes. She’s the founder of Skinterrupt - an online hub of information on a variety of difficult skin conditions, and the host of the Healthy Skin Show podcast. Jennifer is also a member of the American Nutrition Association, an advisor for the Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance, and authored the book ‘The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper: How to Eat Healthy without Breaking the Bank.’

In this episode, you’ll hear Jennifer’s views on:

🔹the hidden causes of chronic rashes

🔹what's worked to get rid of her clients' rashes

🔹the one thing that everyone with a chronic rash should NOT do

🔹the problem with elimination diets

🔹three tips for rebuilding healthy skin

🔹why being ‘too clean’ can be bad for our skin

🔹the purpose of a rash

🔹the impact of a carnivore diet on her clients’ test results

🔹a telling effect from switching to a vegan diet

The skin and its links to the gut microbiome is so intriguing to me. Some of you might remember the article I wrote about my three-year chronic case of perioral dermatitis (and what I did that finally got rid of it). I updated it recently and added a quote from Jennifer in the piece too. You can read it here:
