Integrative Dermatology

Dr. Abraham offers comprehensive Integrative dermatology consultations where she combines traditional dermatology with complementary and alternative approaches to address skin issues. Integrative dermatologists consider the whole person, not just the skin condition. The field of integrative dermatology recognizes the interrelation of various factors, including lifestyle, diet, stress, and environmental influences, in contributing to skin health.

Some Aspects of What Integrative Dermatology Might Focus On

  • Holistic Approach
    Dr. Abraham will look at lifestyle factors such as your diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management to identify potential contributors to skin problems.

  • Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling
    Dr. Abraham guides nutrition and lifestyle changes that may positively impact your skin health. She may recommend specific diets or supplements to support skin function.

  • Mind-Body Connection
    Stress and mental health can significantly impact the skin. Dr. Abraham may explore mind-body practices, such as meditation, yoga, or other stress-reducing techniques, to complement traditional treatments.

  • Alternative Therapies
    She may incorporate complementary and alternative therapies, such as acupuncture or herbal remedies, in conjunction with conventional dermatological treatments.

  • Preventive Strategies
    She will emphasize preventive measures to maintain overall skin health, including sun protection, proper skincare routines, and lifestyle modifications.

  • Patient Education Dr. Abraham will highlight patient education, empowering you to take an active role in managing your skin health through informed lifestyle choices.

Integrative dermatology is a relatively new and evolving field, and not all dermatologists may follow this approach. While some of us incorporate aspects of the goals above, Dr. Abraham has undergone rigorous training and has been certified as an integrative dermatologist.

I appreciated that Dr. Ringpfeil took the time to thoroughly explain everything we spoke about. She did not simply provide a professional opinion, she provided her opinion and supplemented it with an explanation that made everything clear to me. I felt like I was listened to and interacted with, rather than just spoken at (which has often been my experience with other dermatologists). Thank you!
