Rosacea most often shows up as redness on the cheeks and nasal area, with obviously dilated blood vessels and inflamed skin. It sometimes also involves oily skin, blemishes and pustules that can form and the skin around the nose can become thickened, often resulting in a misdiagnosis as acne. While the only way to cure rosacea is by addressing the underlying, internal cause of the inflammation (often due to diet), using the proper topical products to calm and nourish the skin can help reduce flare-ups and inflammation.

Notes from Ben on Rosacea
Supporting Lifestyle and Nutritional Protocol
While it may seem like a skin condition, in reality, rosacea is a circulatory and immune system condition that only shows up on the skin superficially. It is most directly linked to the digestive system and most rosacea patients know that they need to avoid certain foods. Rosacea patients, typically middle-aged women and patients with fair skin are often dealing with infections from the H pylori bacteria and also contend with deficiencies in digestive enzyme as well as stomach acid. Occasional rosacea is associated with oily skin and acne lesions that should also be addressed as digestive issues. Other possible rosacea symptoms include stinging, burning and sensitive skin, patches of roughness and enlarged skin pores. Consider adding the following protocols to your daily routine:
1. Eliminate problem foods such as grains and flour, dairy, soy, peanuts, and other legumes.
2. Use probiotics, multiple strains and so-called good bacteria in fermented vegetables.
3. Enjoy fresh, vegetable juices (with the fiber), select only veggies that do not create digestive distress.
4. Use digestive enzymes, pancreatin, bile salts and apple cider vinegar with all meals. Start meals off with “bitters” and bitter veggies like dandelion greens, radish, arugula, and kale.
5. Use nutritional supplements featuring all 90 essential nutrients. Pay particular attention to:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B5 along with B-complex
- Vitamin K
