We often assume that skin issues are caused by what we are using externally on the skin, but that isn't usually the issue. When we experience abnormal skin conditions like eczema, acne, psoriasis, rosacea, this is a clear sign of our body crying for help. The skin is the larges detoxification system in the body. When toxins are built up in overload in the body, they will start to show on the surface of our skin. When we see this sign, its important to take action. Although the doctor will typically say that these skin disorders are chronic, hereditary, etc, they can actually be fully reversed in many cases. A few months ago, I experienced extremely abnormal and severe dermatitis on my skin. I have never dealt with any kind of skin issues previous to this, even hormonal acne as a teenager. This to me was completely out of the blue. It was located around my mouth and chin (this location signifies a weakness in the digestive system, according to Chinese Medicine). After months of trial and error, I realized that there was more to this issue. I got tested and realize my skin was expelling toxins due to a fungal infection from food poisoning, which I experienced earlier that year. I remember going to the doctors office and he told me that this was Chronic Perioral Dermititis and that my skin was never going to clear up. After three months of anti fungal cleansing, the infection went away. My symptoms like fatigue, bloating, joint pain and abnormal skin issues also went away. Symptoms that I never even realized I had, also disappeared. These skin disorders signify a leaky gut picture. Leaky gut can be prominent for so many reasons. - Medication or birth control - Internal or external stress (work stress, relationships, travel, pollution, etc) - Candida and parasites - Trauma to the nervous system When our digestive system isn't working properly to assemble nutrients and excrete toxins, we start to notice abnormality on the surface. What we see on the outside, is a true picture of the inside. If you experience any of these skin disorders, ask yourself how you feel inside? Do you wake up feeling tired? Do you experience bad breath? Do you get headaches? Do you feel bloated constantly? Bad PMS? These are all symptoms to a poorly working digestive tract. Work from the inside, to experience results from the outside. If you experience any of these symptoms, I would highly recommend checking out the Digestive Nourishment eBook located in the shop section, or checking out the services that I offer to help you get your glowing skin back.
