True Stories- a Hidden Connection Between Gut Health, Acne and Painful Cramps

A 32-year-old woman with a lively and active demeanor came to our clinic complaining of severe premenstrual and menstrual symptoms, including irregular menstrual cycles, irregular bowel movements, and cystic acne. Some of these ailments have plagued her since her early teens. During some months, the symptoms include heavy and debilitatingly painful periods that can last up to 18–19 days.

She also had significant outbreaks of cystic acne, which got worse in the week prior to starting her menstrual cycle. She is also experiencing gastrointestinal distress resulting in alternating diarrhea and constipation. Her symptoms have not improved despite her consultations with multiple allopathic and holistic doctors.

Following laboratory and functional medicine testing to identify the root cause of her symptoms, we started a highly targeted and customized therapy program. We started by treating the gut microbiome and addressing hormone metabolism using findings from a stool and DUTCH test. Bloodwork also uncovered iron, vitamin D and B12 deficiencies all of which are critical for overall health. The patient experienced positive and impactful results after a short period of time and has continued to progress into complete resolution of symptoms.

She noted her experience with our clinic and treatment as follows; “I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Soria. She has gone above & beyond for my health. I’m wildly impressed with her knowledge, quality services & care. I suffered from severe menstrual pain, cystic acne, gut issues and other personal issues. My experience with other physicians have been unpleasant and impersonal all with only one solution… pills. They practically have their hand on the doorknob upon entry and spend about two minutes tops with ya. But not here…. Dr. Soria truly cares in finding the root and CAUSE of your health conditions or concerns and she takes her time in explaining- in depth -your personalized health findings. Do yourself a favor and book her for your health concerns or questions. THIS is what healthcare truly is! Thank you for restoring my faith in healthcare again.”
