Hidden Root Causes of Chronic Skin Conditions

with podcast guest

Jennifer Fugo


Jennifer Fugo, MS, LDN, CNS is a clinical nutritionist empowering adults who’ve been failed by conventional medicine to beat chronic skin and unending gut challenges. She has experience working with conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dandruff, and hives and she founded her own line of skincare and supplements specifically for people struggling with these chronic skin issues. Jennifer is also an Amazon best-selling author and the host of the Healthy Skin Show.

In this episode, we talk about Jennifer’s journey with her own skin issues, the root causes of common skin conditions that are often overlooked, why essential oils may be harming more than helping, the connection between your skin and your gut microbiomes, and so much more. As you’ll hear, Jennifer is brilliant and her approach is very different from the typical dermatologist’s approach to chronic skin conditions. Enjoy the episode!
