Do you have acne? A long standing rash? A yeast infection? Aging or damaged skin?

What is your skin telling you?

Are you ready to have the best skin ever?

Know that your skin is telling you something. It is a messenger wanting you to pay attention to what is happening inside of you.

It matters what you put in your mouth and on your skin.

From the foods we eat, to the air we breathe, to the stress we feel, we are introducing pathogens and particles, making and breaking cells, mobilizing and stimulating various actions, all day and night.

Fact: We make waste. And if your internal organs can’t keep up with all the cleaning that’s needed, it’s going to push through your skin!

I had the pleasure of chatting with Amandha Vollmer, BSc, ND, Holistic Health Practioner, the other day and we were discussing skin health……

“I often see people with eczema come to me for assistance. Each time, there is an over-burdened liver and the skin is being used to excrete waste. The waste then sits upon the skin, aggravating it and leading to a rash.

The worst cases I see are those who then were prescribed cortisone topical creams. This temporarily can make the rash lessen, however it not only suppresses the action of the liver, which is trying desperately to get toxins out of the body, but it adds a further toxic load to the liver for processing. It also depresses the immune system leading to a whole other ‘hot mess’.

So no wonder the rash always comes back with a vengeance! Often a stronger cortisone is prescribed and if the suppression continues the body has no choice but to put the overload in the lungs, leading to weakness, wheezing and many times asthma, especially in children. In adults, this action generally leads to the common ‘arthritis’, as the toxins are stored in the only ‘safe’ place the body can put it, the joints (after, of course the lymph system is full).”

I have been enjoying using Yummy Mummy products that Amandha makes, by hand and with a lot of love added.

Here are a few of her favourites to help clear up any skin issues:

  1. Parsley infusion tea or tincture for the kidneys
  2. Topical castor oil for joints and lymph mixed with frankincense essential oil

    Yummy Mummy Eczema Cream made from a combination of calendula & chickweed for drawing out skin toxins. She designed her Eczema Cream to be used as a treatment to pull out toxins that are sitting under the skin. Once they are out, the skin is cleansed and re-moisturized. After about a week of use it can be used without removal. So far I have had 99% success rate with this protocol (and many times in combination with Hazelwood jewellery, which upregulates the liver enzyme 2 detoxification pathway via interaction with the skin.)

    Another great way to get the BEST SKIN EVER is to use skin care products from Living Libations.
