JTG #57 Dr. Tara O’Desky On Healing Rosacea Naturally

JTG #57 Dr. Tara O’Desky’s Rosacea Healing Story

I’m excited to share with you another incredible rosacea healing story with my guest Dr. Tara O’Desky. After living with rosacea for 20 years, Tara healed her rosacea naturally and holistically in 2 months.

If you have rosacea, this episode is a MUST LISTEN.⁣ (If you have acne, PD, eczema, psoriasis, this is episode is for you too!)

At the beginning of my conversation with Tara, I get a little emotional about the real reason for Journey To Glow and my quest for the TRUTH. (Not apologizing by the way, we should never apologize for being “sensitive” or passionate.)

To be honest, this whole journey to glow thing is not just about healing rosacea or any skin issue, it’s about shifting old paradigms about healing that are not serving humanity anymore.

When I first heard Tara’s story, I had so many ‘AH-HAs’! I realized that I’d been doing everything right on my journey to glow: I had eliminated inflammatory foods, was taking the right supplements, making the right lifestyle changes, I was doing cleanses I thought were right for me… But I wasn’t doing it in the RIGHT order, I didn’t have a system!

Listening to Tara share her story and how she figured out how to heal her rosacea showed me that it was time for a more streamlined and organized approach to go about healing my own skin.

So I’m excited to share not only this interview but also to announce that I’ve partnered with Tara to create RECLAIM: a one-of-a-kind, 5-week, group coaching program where you’ll learn the foundational pillars intrinsic to healthy skin and ignite your body’s full healing potential.

About our guest

Dr. Tara O’Desky grew up in a small town surrounded by forests, wildlife, herbs, perennial gardens, vegetable gardens and chickens. She learned at an early age the importance of medicinal herbs and living a sustainable life.

She graduated Magma Cum Laude from Fairfield University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in marketing and studio art. While working in Boston, she continued to pursue her interests in nutrition, natural healing and herbal remedies. After a few years in the business world, she knew it was time for a change.

She began medical school at the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, and was the recipient of the Charles G. Berwind Foundation scholarship, which supports students pursuing goals in medical and science fields. Dr. O’Desky graduated in 2003 and began practicing in Massachusetts, treating a diverse group of patients of all ages. She has focused her career on nutrition and whole food supplementation, medicinal herbs and holistic healing.

In 2019 she healed her own rosacea after 20 years of ineffective treatments and medications. She has since helped countless patients with rosacea and other afflictions after developing her own holistic program for chronic skin conditions. Dr. O’Desky lives outside of Boston with her husband, two daughters, a Siberian cat, and a dwarf hamster.

When she’s not working, she also enjoys gardening, painting and a newfound love of cooking.

In this interview, Dr. Tara shares:

  • What are demodex mites and how they may affect your skin
  • A natural product for your eyes if you have ocular rosacea
  • Essential oils for Demodex mites
  • Sulfur creams for rosacea
  • Why dermatologists and optometrists don’t tell you about demodex mites
  • The importance of following a proper detox system to get long term results
  • Why we don’t see improvement in our skin with nutrition alone
  • Why you want a balanced approach to cleansing
  • The toxic effects of mercury amalgam
  • The importance of working with a holistic dentist
  • How quickly our skin can heal once we put our finger on the root causes
