There is a lot of talk in the media about the effects our diet can have inside our bodies as well as on the surface of our skin. Younger Skin Starts in the Gut by Dr. Nigma Talib addresses how eating the wrong foods can impact digestion as well as age skin by causing wrinkles, blemishes, and bags among other undesirable outcomes.

Outlined in the book is a 4-week program to “identify and eliminate your skin-aging triggers — Gluten, Wine, Dairy and Sugar.” Wine? Say it isn’t so, Dr. Talib?!

Kate Bosworth says:

“Dr. Nigma gives her patients power through knowledge. She will supply you with the tools to feel your best self — from the inside out. She’s a life changer.”


Younger Skin Starts In The Gut by Dr. Nigma Talib

We all know that our skin is the largest organ in the human body. But what does that really mean? It means that our skin is the gateway to our immune system, one of the most important systems we have to prevent and protect against illness and disease. Yet the skin is largely ignored when treating disease or thinking about methods of prevention.

The great thing about the skin is that it can be accessed by dual methods. You can make changes to what you apply to your skin and what is accessible in the environment around your body that can have an effect. But, you can also exercise control over what is ingested into your body that can be distributed throughout and support optimal health (or cause damage) as well.

Dr. Talib has 14 years experience as a naturopathic doctor, medical aesthetician, and leading authority on holistic healthporing over research and treating patients to develop this ground-breaking program to help all of us improve our health and combat the aging process working from the inside out.

“Gut health” is all over the place right now, I keep reading articles and seeing videos about how Americans are suffering from increased bad gut yeast due to our largely processed diets and increasingly sneaky ways food manufacturers are lacing their products with dangerously high levels of sugar and artificial sweeteners that damage our health. Dr. Talib, who considers herself a “biomedical detective” who tries to understand and discover the root cause of her patients’ health issues rather than just treating symptoms. It is this approach that impresses me the most. While she does not advocate throwing away topical methods of supporting skin health such as face and body creams, she rather supports using them in conjunction with internal efforts to improve absorption and digestion of nutrients, improving good gut bacteria while reducing bad bacteria (including information about probiotics), eating more healthy fats and fewer unhealthy ones, fight inflammation that causes health problems, rejuvenating hormones, and reducing life stressors among other important information. Smart!

Included also are Dr. Talib’s personal favorites in skin care products, a 4-week eating plan and a section of simple recipes to get you started on the journey to a younger-feeling, healthier life.
