Often skin breakouts or acne may indicate hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiencies or poor dietary habits. Numerous parts of the body can be affected by spots with different areas potentially indicating different imbalances. Here’s what it all means.



Intestinal problems – maybe constipation. Drink plenty of water and herbal teas. Ensure sufficient fibre intake. Support gut bacterial balance with probiotics, fermented foods and fibre.


Lung problems – mullein, astragalus and evening primrose oil may help. Avoid dairy and saturated fats.


Heart and circulation problems – hawthorn and coQ10 may help. Gingko is good for circulation.


Hormonal imbalances – magnesium, zinc, vitamins A and B6 may help.

Around the mouth

Reproductive area – agnus castus, zinc, magnesium and B6 may help.


Digestive imbalances – digestive enzymes and/or probiotics may help. Chew thoroughly.

Upper Back

Lung problems – astragalus and mullein are lung supportive herbs. Avoid dairy and sugar.
