Acne and pimples are no fun and often create great insecurities in our being as we wonder where in the world this ugly thing came from. How many times have you said or heard someone else say, “Oh no! Did it have to land there on my face right before the big date?”
Many people don’t realize that the skin is the largest detox organ of the body and when you have any skin condition, it’s important to realize your body is doing the only thing it knows how to do; release toxins. Whether you have acne, eczema or any number of other skin conditions, most often you are dealing with a toxicity issue. This may mean that a cleanse is in order for your body. Cleansing organs such as the liver and colon are a good place to start. Here is a 21 day cleanse that I often recommend: "The Standard Process 21 Day Purification Program" Many people find that a number of health issues disappear during this 21 day period.
There are other ways to address acne such as BodyTalk which can be performed in person or long distance, but let’s first learn a little bit more about what it all means.
A skin disease mostly found during adolescence.
Inflammatory: hair follicles and their associated sebaceous glands are inflamed, with possible scarring.
Non inflammatory: commonly referred to as pimples, spots, or zits.
1. Diet – Milk, processed foods, and refined sugars are common food allergies that cause acne. They can be addressed using BodyTalk .
2. Hormonal activity – Puberty, and its associated fluctuations in estrogen and testosterone levels, cause hormonal imbalances. Sebaceous glands often become overactive during this time. BodyTalk balances the hormones released by the pituitary gland, adrenal glands, ovaries, and testes.
3. Stress – Pre-exam stress, problematic situations, peer pressure, and lack of regular sleep can also be underlying causes of acne. BodyTalk looks at the person holistically, addressing frustrations, insecurities, anger, fear, anxiety, and the confusion caused by constantly having to adapt to changing hormonal levels.
4. Medication – Regular medications such as inhalers and antibiotics may have side effects and cause an already toxic liver to become overwhelmed. BodyTalk regulates, harmonizes, balances, and detoxifies the liver.
