“Nowhere else have I seen a collection of information compiled to give the acne suffer true hope.”

“Regardless of who you are, acne can be one of the most frustrating skin conditions to deal with. With treatment options seemingly limited to gimmicky over-the-counter products or dangerous medications, consumers are often left in turmoil about options to pursue. Fortunately, real science supporting ways to address acne do exist.

Dr. Peter has skillfully navigated this information to give patients a plan for their appearance to be renewed and unsightly blemishes eliminated. In each page of this book, you feel the understanding that Dr. Peter has for those suffering from acne as she presents common sense ways to overcome it.. Nowhere else have I seen a collection of information such as this compiled to give the acne suffer true hope. If you are frustrated, embarrassed or simply want answers, you should look no further than “It’s Not Just Acne”.

“A paradigm shift in acne care”

Have you been looking for a clinician who looks at your entire body and its interconnectedness to other areas when trying to discover why you have acne? With the knowledge of your acne’s root cause, you will have an opportunity to treat it better and keep it from reoccurring again. Rather from exposures you had as a child or new exposures as an adult, Dr. Peter provides all the tools you’ll need to discover exactly what you’ll need to reverse your acne. The medical community needs clinicians like Dr. Peter to shift the disease management paradigm to one where disease reversal and healing are the new standard. I highly recommend her book for anyone who has been struggling with acne.”

“It’s About Time!”

“Lotions, creams, potions, hormones, antibiotics, steroids, and synthetic (toxic) vitamin A…This in a nutshell has always been the conventional way to deal with acne. It is so relieving to see Dr. Peter tackle this issue with sincerity and integrity. She goes into detail about the root cause of acne. She includes chapters on:

  1. Vitamins and Minerals
  2. Gut Health
  3. Hormone imbalance
  4. Liver health and detoxification

Healthy skin comes from within, and this book can help you understand the how and why.
Definitely worth a read”
