Anyone know of any resources, listings, etc for finding integrative/holistic dermatologists in the US (northern Calif)? Or other practitioners such as Naturopaths, Chinese Medicine docs, herbalists with experience treating skin issues holistically and integratively?

I find the whole field of modern Dermatology to be dangerous and scary. Each one i've been to sees the skin as a discrete organ separate from the body, with no interest in the patient's internal health, and mostly they are just technicians who cut things off, send to the lab, dispense drugs. And push chemical sunscreens 24/7 as the only preventive measure.
