Get off the merry-go-round of
There is so much conflicting information on the Internet, social media and through untrained “influencers” about how to care for your skin naturally and a good deal of it is worthless, or unsafe.
Some suggest not bathing daily others say do (yes do, then moisturize the whole body). Some say use oils to protect and heal skin.
Others say use this lotion or cream or don't use any at all. And what about essential oils? Are they safe and effective?
Juliette Aiyana can help you find the answers.
You may have already consulted with other Chinese medicine, East Asian medicine or Holistic practitioners who have helped you with other health issues but who d0 not specialize in dermatology.
Perhaps you’ve taken a homeopathic remedy based on a recommendation from a naturopath, or tried Functional Medicine which required 10 different supplements every day that were harsh on your digestion or just too dang many to keep up with.
Let's work together to target a unique plan based on your specific needs.
Harsh Elimination Diets
Elimination diets may actually cause food intolerances and sensitivities. They can be confusing and leave you very hungry.
Fad juice or water cleanses can be dangerous to your health because they lack nutrition.
Some diet changes can be very helpful, but harsh elimination diets are not healthy. Humans need a varied diet with vitamins, fiber, proteins, and fats.
Balance is key. Let's find the right balance for you.
Dermatologists offer limited tools that can lead to long term side effects such as steroid creams, and round after round of antibiotics. These techniques can help in the short term and might be needed on occasion, they will not get to the root cause and rarely teach people how to care for and protect their skin.
Dupixent is a safer medical alternative but not everyone is eligible for that therapy, or they tried it and it did not work or they simply want to avoid medications.
Under the guidance of your doctor you can wean off medications while integrating a holistic health plan.

Patients commonly experience significant relief from discomfort within about 6-8 weeks and it just keeps getting better over time.
The full course of treatment takes eight to twelve months but some tougher cases take longer.
The first phase of treatment (generally six months) focuses on controlling the uncomfortable symptoms, clearing the skin of problems such as itching, pain, redness, dryness, reducing in the size and duration of acne breakouts, heat, oozing, plaques, bumps, and dry, cracked skin and managing flare-ups.
The second phase of treatment (generally three months) focuses on keeping the skin stable and managing any flares up that might occur.
The third phase of treatment (generally another three months) focuses on repairing and nourishing the skin and harmonizing the root cause of energetic disharmony to prevent flare-ups and keep you in remission for as long as possible.
You've got to be ready to commit to the entire length of time, the cost and be patient with the ups and downs of natural treatments. Over time, these level out.
Chinese medicine treats the root cause of disharmony in the body. This treatment protocol method can usually completely clear skin problems within six to twelve months and they rarely reappear.
Chinese Medicine Offers Safe and Effective Treatment For Skin Disorders
Overuse of steroid creams cause the skin to permanently thin and degrade. Chinese medicine’s herbal topical ointments are safe and do not cause permanent damage. (Some patients may be sensitive to ingredients in the natural products. If that happens the patient is switched to different, natural products.)
Overuse of internal steroids damage the immune system and biologic suppress the immune system. Chinese medicine strengthens the immune system.
Topical steroid cream treatment can cause severe withdrawal rashes. When a patient completes Chinese herbal treatment they do not experience withdrawal rashes.
Antibiotics treatments lead to antibiotic resistance, digestive gut health damage, and destroys healthy gut and skin flora/bacteria. Chinese medicine can heal the digestive system and restore healthy gut bacteria.

End of 15 Year Struggle with Eczema
This person had eczema since childhood.
After using steroids on my skin for over 15 years, I was struggling with so many health issues. Every doctor I visited only tried pushing more drugs on me. They wouldn't listen to my concerns and all their methods were just a temporary solution. I was frustrated, angry, confused and upset as to why this was happening to me. My skin was red, burning, itchy, peeling, swollen, oozing, and just extremely painful. I didn’t know what to do any more until I found Juliette.
I did not know what to expect my first visit, but she was so welcoming. Not only did she take the time to listen to all my concerns and everything that was happening to me, but she also explained what was happening and why it was happening. It helped me understand why my body was rebelling against me. She gave me an honest timeframe of how long it’ll take me to heal. Every visit she took the time to listen and adjust my medicine according to how I was doing. She was so understanding and patient, always! She was there for me every step of the way. Any time I had any questions she was there to answer. I knew going in it was going to be a long and tough journey, but I’m so glad I found Juliette. I’ve learned so much from this experience. Thank you!!
From Total Desperation to Calm, Strength & Joy
Atopic Dermatitis for 2 years prior to starting
I itched constantly from September 2018 to the Spring of 2020. I lived in a constant state of panic and irritation and itch. I spent my days and nights itching or scalding my skin in hot showers. By spring 2020 I had been bed-ridden for a couple months and in total desperation to stop the itching.
As an acupuncture student at the time, I already believed in the importance of healing over medicating. However, Juliette's confidence and unwavering yet realistic optimism helped to convince me that the time and cost of Chinese herbal medicine would be well worth my investment.
It is always interesting when the mind and body prove to be connected. I do believe that as the cold-bitter herbs drained heat and damp from my system, my brain and perspective also cleared and shifted. I got out of a smothering relationship and the inauthentic lifestyle I was living after just one month of the herbs. After that, I healed. From June 2020- March 2021 I drank the herbs every day and watched my skin and my self slowly come back to life. Not only did the itching stop and the skin hydrate, but my panic, stress, and irritability fell away and was replaced with calm, strength and joy! My experience with Juliette Aiyana and Chinese herbal medicine for atopic eczema was exactly what I had hoped for an needed.

Four years of eczema mostly cleared in 10 months
Atopic Dermatitis for 4 years prior to starting
I've been struggling with eczema for about 3 or 4 years now and I am so glad that I tried Chinese medicine with Juliette Aiyana. After seeing many dermatologists and only being prescribed with steroid ointment, I wanted to try a treatment that doesn't involve putting poison (steroid) in my body.
The initial consultation with Juliette was great. Unlike my appointments with the many dermatologists, where they take a look at your rash and give you steroid, Juliette really took her time to ask me questions and details about my symptoms, health history and lifestyle. She presented different treatment options and we were able to decide on one that's effective and also works for my budget.
The recovery journey for eczema is a long one and it takes so much patience, especially when most people are used to the immediate relief when you use steroid. However, I could feel the slowly but steady improvement monthly and after about 10 months, my skin is mostly clear. Each month, we do a check-in and Juliette would modify the formula based on how I was doing. She really cares about her patients and has been flexible in finding something that works for you. Thank you, Juliette!
(Note: This patient was a cat owner was allergic to the cat so they would flare up occasionally through treatments and we'd manage that as we went along and lost their job due to pandemic so had to pause treatment for several months, then restarted. They moved out of the country before they were totally clear but the skin was under control, mostly clear and manageable.)
Unique, Rare and Valuable
A retired acupuncturist finds relief!
Juliette Aiyana is an herbal goddess and an excellent clinician : a very unique, rare and valuable combo! I was suffering from an itchy red rash that started on my left hand and was slowly spreading to other areas of my body. By the time I contacted her the rash was on both of my hands and arms, both of my lower legs, my face and inside my ear canals. I was so miserable, and the constant itch and the thought that my whole body might eventually be covered with this rash was creating a lot of anxiety for me.
Juliette took the time to really listen to me. She customized a formula unique to my body and my symptoms. The liquid herbal formula was prepared for me and delivered to my front door step. It is so convenient! After taking my herbs for only a few days, my skin started to calm down. The first thing I noticed was less itch and less anxiety. I’ve been taking the herbs every day for a couple of months now, and my skin is almost completely clear. I still need to keep taking the herbs for awhile because my body is not stable, but I’m happy to do this because I don’t want the rash to come back.
The herbs are doing their magic and healing my body on a very deep level, getting rid of lots of inflammation. It’s motivated me to also clean up my diet and eat less processed sugar and drink less caffeine, which I have figured out are some of my triggers. One of the added side benefits of taking these herbs is that I’ve also noticed my hair has become thicker and healthier too!
I highly highly recommend Juliette for help with any type of dermatitis, eczema or red, itchy skin condition.
From Chronic Life Long Eczema to Clear and Managed
A dedicated person!
I don’t have enough words to describe how great an herbalist Juliette Aiyana is. I came to her in January of 2020 with horrible eczema all over body and face. When I say horrible, I mean horrible. I had eczema all over my eyelids, my face, my legs, my arms, my neck, my back, basically it was everywhere. I was so itchy, my skin was raw, irritated and some places would bleed. The herbal teas that I have been taking so far has worked so well for me. I don’t scratch any more my skin is not raw or irritated. My eczema is basically gone. The first phase was getting the eczema under control like getting rid of the redness, the irritation and the second phase was starting to heal the skin from within by nourishing it and getting rid of the hypo pigmentations. It’s a work in process. You have to be very patient, and follow everything she says and make sure you do your part as well, and I can guarantee you, your skin will transform!
I’m so glad that I have found her and I have decided to give her a try. She will help you with setting up a diet that works positively for you, she will help you with finding the right skin care products, the type of cloth material you should be wearing, she will basically transform your life and habits for the better! I don’t know where I would be if I never came to her for her services. Having eczema can really take a toll on your mental health, so I recommend definitely going to her!! She is amazing!!
Was Practically Disabled To Healthy
Before meeting with Juliette Aiyana, I was practically disabled with my eczema. I was wearing gloves and bandages to keep my eczema from being exposed because it was just raw skin. I couldn't cook because cutting certain veggies or fruits would hurt, I avoided exercise because sweating would irritate it, and even couldn't do my regular chores around the house like wash dishes because it would sting whenever my hands touched soap. I was taking baths with oatmeal daily to try to calm it.
It was a very serious outbreak with weeping, open skin. So much so that when I went to urgent care they were shocked at how bad my eczema outbreak was and referred me to a dermatologist to get steroid injections. I went to urgent care at the time because I thought it was infected at that point because it kept spreading! In my moment of desperation I looked through the National Eczema Association for someone who could help me, which is how I found Juliette.
When I met with Juliette, she put me on a diet that could help with inflammation, gave me advice on skin care and cleaning products to use that wouldn't irritate my skin, and sent me herbs to drink twice a day. It took only a few weeks to see the difference! The eczema started to calm down and eventually I could start to bend my pinky finger that was previously too swollen to do so. After a few months it really calmed down to a manageable irritation. It still cycled through flare ups from time to time but these flares were much more manageable and not debilitating. It was amazing to see how much I've healed and I'm forever grateful to have crossed paths with Juliette. If it wasn't for her, I'd have to get dosed with steroids to manage the flare up I had. I've gone through Topical Steroid Withdrawal in the past so I was really scared to start taking steroids again, and Juliette offered a different option for me. Without Chinese herbs I would have been forced to apply steroids again that caused harm to my skin. I probably would still wonder what made my skin flare up. Now I know the specific foods and skin care products that affect my skin. Juliette has really helped me get my eczema under control and understand my body more.

The patient-practitioner relationship is created as she engages you in discussion about how to integrate changes in your diet, sleep and exercise habits.

Integrative medicine is necessary for some cases. Most natural therapies can be safely combined with important medications such as for thyroid problems, insulin, antivirals and more.
Patients who want to wean off medication such as hormonal birth control, allergy medications, steroids or antidepressants will do so under the care of their prescribing physician while Ms. Aiyana guides the natural therapy.

Changes to your condition can happen faster than anticipated, so enjoy them!
Keep a positive attitude and expect positive results. As we follow through on your treatment plan, look for signs of improvement and take encouragement from them. Build an attitude that expects positive results and knows that profound healing is possible. Your belief and expectation has an incredibly strong influence on your body, and is a key factor in healing.
