Gain a Harmonious Mind, Healthy Gut, & Glowing Skin

Welcome to The Mind Gut Skin Academy, where I share everything related to skin health. Recognizing the significance of often overlooked factors by mainstream medicine, I've curated a treasure trove of information to empower you with holistic wellness knowledge for every aspect of your health journey.

Do You Resonate With Any of These?

"I can’t seem to get my chronic skin condition under control. I feel like I’ve tried all the skincare products out there, and nothing works."

"I find myself trying desperately to keep my skin condition hidden. I feel so anxious about being seen. Sometimes I even avoid social activities, so no one will see my skin."

"Every day is so hard. Over and over, I end up reaching for the same unhealthy things, just to get by. I don’t know how to get out of this cycle."

"I feel completely depleted, disconnected, and discouraged."



I know what this feels like. I’ve been there.

But Things Are Different Now

But things are different now. I’ve found a way to become confident in my skin and in my body. I know that it’s possible, and I want this for you too.  

You See, I'm a Skin Warrior Myself.

I have alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes hair loss. I’ve been living with this condition since I was 8 years old.

During my childhood and teen years, I really struggled with my hair loss. I wore a wig every day, to ensure that no one would see my true self. I was so convinced that if anyone found out, I’d immediately be ostracized and isolated, and no one would ever want to be my friend again.

As I headed into my teens and 20s, I found myself stuck in a cycle of shame and guilt and started turning to food as a coping mechanism. I just didn’t know what else to do.

One day, I looked in the mirror and I didn’t even recognize the person that I saw staring back at me. I was in my early 20s, and I was overweight, prediabetic, had high cholesterol, and was mired in depression and anxiety. My skin condition would flare up unpredictably. I was constantly worried about my appearance. I was a complete mess.


My Shame and Anxiety Were Literally Killing Me

Maybe you can relate. You’re trapped in a cycle of shame about your skin condition, and you find yourself reaching for unhealthy coping mechanisms even though you don’t really want to. I want you to know that there’s hope. In fact, everything can change with just one decision.

For me, the shift happened when I had my son. As I looked into my baby’s eyes, I knew that I couldn’t keep living this way. I wanted him to feel confident and free to show up in the world as his true self. But that wasn’t the example I was setting at all. 

I was almost ready to give up. I’m so glad that I didn’t. Instead, I made a decision to do whatever it took to change my life. I went on a journey to find out everything I could about chronic skin disease. I even ended up going to medical school, so I could learn as much as possible about how to support the health of the skin. 


Along the way, I discovered some simple yet powerful ways to improve not only my skin, but my overall physical and mental health. I saw firsthand how mainstream medicine tends to ignore some important factors, despite the huge and growing amount of research showing how much of an impact they can have.


Now, I'm a confident Skin Survivor!

I feel great in both my body and my mind, and I no longer fear heading out the door in the morning. I show up every day as my true authentic self – nothing hidden. My physical and mental well-being have improved immensely, and I feel healthy and strong.

I’m on a mission to share everything that I’ve learned with others. I know from experience that it’s possible to go from struggling to thriving, even if you’re dealing with a chronic skin condition. The healing that I’ve experienced is possible for you too.

My desire to share my exact blueprint for healing led to the creation of my signature program…

The Mind Gut Skin Academy

This is a comprehensive membership site where I share everything related to skin health. Recognizing the significance of often overlooked factors by mainstream medicine, I've curated a treasure trove of information to empower you with holistic wellness knowledge for every aspect of your health journey.

At first, I was planning to make MGS Academy a single online course. However, I quickly realized that this wasn’t the best way to share everything. Instead, MGS Academy is a membership program.



Here's Why The MGS Academy is the Ideal Model


You can explore the content at your own pace. Take your time and work at a speed that suits you best.


You can revisit and review the content as many times as necessary.


You can spend more time on areas where you need more help, and less time on things you already feel strong about.


You’ll have access to bonus content on a regular basis. I bring in guest experts at least once a month, so you can get new perspectives.


The content is regularly updated to reflect the latest scientific research.

Because MGS Academy is so packed full of value, I want to ensure that you’re able to fully absorb the experience and integrate the information. This takes time. That’s why memberships are a minimum six-month commitment. A year is even better.

I'm Dr. Renee Thomason


As a medical doctor, expert in lifestyle medicine, and the founder of Mind-Gut-Skin Academy, I know how powerfully these three aspects of health are connected. I’ve seen over and over what happens to a person’s skin health when they finally start addressing their gut health and their mindset.

I truly believe that this program is the absolute best way for people with chronic skin conditions to improve their health and become confident and truly free.

I’m living proof that change is possible – no matter how anxious and miserable you are now, and no matter how long you’ve been suffering. Things don’t have to continue like this. There is a way to reclaim your life.

You may have been suffering for years, and now you’ve finally found a road map to a better way of living. Don’t waste any more time mired in shame and anxiety about your skin.
