About Dr. Julie Greenberg

Dr. Julie Greenberg is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor who specializes in integrative dermatology. She is the founder of the Center for Integrative Dermatology, a holistic clinic that approaches skin problems by finding and treating the root cause.

Dr. Greenberg holds degrees from Northwestern University, Stanford University, and Bastyr University. She lectures at naturopathic medical schools and speaks at conferences across the U.S. on the topics of hair, skin, and nails. Dr. Greenberg is the Program Chair for the Naturopathic & Integrative Dermatology Series at LearnSkin, a 20 course CE program for doctors that discuss evidence-based alternative approaches to treating dermatological conditions.

Getting to the Root Cause of Chronic Skin Conditions

No single system of your body exists in isolation. This includes your skin. Problems in your gut often show up as a skin condition. Dr. Greenberg explains how to heal your microbiome by getting diverse inputs from lots of different foods, particularly fibrous ones, to get your gut back on track. By correctly addressing the root causes of skin conditions this way, you can start to see actual changes.

Fixing the gut to heal the skin usually means getting your microbiome back in balance. Dr. Greenberg talks about how antibiotics, certain medications, alcohol, and lack of fiber can all lead to issues like leaky gut. Leaky gut is at the root of so many dermatological conditions. When food passes through the mucosal barrier in the intestines, inflammation will naturally follow.


The Connection Between Your Skin and Your Food

Fortunately, there is a lot that you can do to address these issues. Dr. Greenberg describes how reducing toxins and taking care of your immune system goes a long way. There are also some foods to avoid if you have certain sensitivities. Dairy and wheat are big ones to stay away from for many people in general since they often cause inflammation. For those with specific diseases, such as rosacea, hot foods and spice are often the culprits. Since food sensitivities come in so many forms, it is important to work with your practitioner to discover what’s best for you.

“Food absolutely matters 100 percent. Food can absolutely be a trigger and make your symptoms worse, but it is generally not the root cause, so we still have to go deeper.” [11:30]

“You can’t fix these chronic dermatological issues just from the outside in. The body is telling you there’s a problem inside. [17:03]

“I find that usually my approach and my protocols as a naturopathic doctor treating skin are much more aligned with nutritionists than dermatologists because steroids are not the way to go.” [47:52]
