Skin shrinks

Want to treat stubborn skin conditions like acne, rosacea, even psoriasis, but you've had only temporary relief from pills, creams and ointments? Just put your mind to it!! There's an actual growing medical specialty called psychodermatology, where doctors insist there's a psychological component at the root of common skin conditions, and that traditional treatments only attack the symptoms and not the cause. Experts say they're seeing great success with therapies such as biofeedback, relaxation techniques and even hypnosis at helping clearing stubborn skin ailments, used alone or in combination with popular medication. If you think it's simply a mind game, think again. The field is becoming so widely recognized, leading medical schools are actually starting up psychodermatology courses and clinics!! Why a clear mind may help lead to a clear complexion!

. Thanks for looking!
