Vitiligo 101 + Alternative Treatment Options w/ Dr. Raja Sivamani
This is my first episode on vitiligo, and my guest today is here to lay some groundwork about this condition, as well as other depigmentation conditions that are mistaken for vitiligo.
My guest today is Dr. Raja Sivamani, a board-certified dermatologist who practices at Pacific Skin Institute.
He is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Clinical Dermatology at the University of California, Davis and Director of Clinical Research and the Clinical Trials Unit.
Why Is Zinc So Important For Your Skin?
Though zinc is most commonly discussed in terms of it’s immune-boosting function, there’s also a lot of interest in it for skin health.
Though I’ve touched on zinc before on the Healthy Skin Show, I want to spend some time diving deeper into its benefits as well as problems with over-supplementation.
Misdiagnosis of Chronic Skin Conditions In Skin of Color w/ Dr. Hope Mitchell
Did you know that inflammation shows up differently on skin of color than on white skin? As a result, people of color are often misdiagnosed, because their doctors have not been trained in the different ways skin conditions can present on different skin tones.
A native of Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Hope Mitchell attended the University of Rochester and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology.
Healthy Sweetener Alternatives For The Holidays
If you’ve ever wondered how you can mindfully reduce your sugar intake, this episode is right up your alley!
We know that sugar can trigger skin rash flares, gut problems, and increase inflammation in the body (aside from contributing to blood sugar and hormone issues).
While there are a lot of people that would swear to you that sugar is the devil and you should avoid it at all costs, I like to take a more pragmatic approach.
Mold + Histamine Connection w/ Dr. Jill Crista
When we think of histamine issues, most of us think of the usual symptoms (e.g. runny nose, congestion, itchy eyes). But did you know that high histamine can also cause behavioral issues and skin rashes, particularly in children?
My guest today is Dr. Jill Crista, a naturopathic doctor, best-selling author, and internationally recognized educator on mold illness.
She helps people recover their health after exposure to toxic mold.
Before You Say No To Antibiotics, Consider This
It’s pretty common to be afraid that antibiotics will wreck your gut microbiome.
That fear is pervasive thanks to the many health marketers who’ve convinced people (including myself at one point) that antibiotics were something to avoid at all costs.
Unfortunately I’ve found that this approach leads my clients (and those in this community) to feel confused and to avoid treatment when it might actually be the best thing.

So much great info!
Jennifer and all her guests on this podcast offer so much great info on all things skin related! I love listening and learning and not feeling absolutely crazy about my skin issues (4+ years TSW). I wish my dermatologist was this educated!
Jennifer, host of the The Healthy Skin Show podcast, highlights all aspects of skin conditions and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
This is SO helpful for people with skin issues. I have gone to doctors who all just prescribed steroids, but Jennifer digs deep to help you figure out the root cause of what is going on. I have had psoriasis for years, and I’m starting to realize it might have been linked to chronic strep infections when I was younger. Dietary changes have helped too. Thank you so much for making this information available to people!
