Understanding Acne: With Meredith Mason, CNP


Very few of us have been fortunate enough to not battle with acne at some point in our lives. Outbreaks can be detrimental to our self-esteem and traditional methods of treatment (read long term use of antibiotics) have the potential to devastate our systems.

On this week's episode we welcome back our favorite nurse practitioner, Mreredith Mason. Meredith is founder of BRIO Integrative Medicine in Chattanooga, TN. Ed and Meredith discuss some of the causes of acne, the dangers of traditional treatment, some of their favorite skin care products, the role of inflammation and why acne must be addressed from within.

β€œan individual with oily skin might not think that they could benefit from a plant oil, but if that plant oil is driving down inflammation it could actually decrease breakouts in the long term.”
