Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing


Skin Brushing Tips

The skin is the largest eliminative organ of the body. SO GET TO IT AND START BRUSHING!

As the largest eliminative organ, the skin plays a vital role in ridding the body of toxins and impurities that are a potential source of future illness. Many health practitioners recommend dry skin brushing to open the pores of the skin and to help activate the lymphatic system. When the pores are not clogged with dead cells and the lymphatic system is flowing freely, the body is able to carry out its important function of eliminating toxins and waste material via the skin (i.e., perspiration).

Often today, people do not perspire enough. In addition, synthetic clothing can have a suffocating effect on the skin. We highly recommend wearing only natural fiber clothing—always!

Skin brushing is particularly valuable in enabling the body to breathe and function properly. Dr. John R. Christopher stated that approximately 50% to 60% of our oxygen enters our body through our skin! Further, skin brushing increases blood circulation in all underlying organs and tissues.

Detoxing/Cleansing and Dry Skin Brushing

As part of a detoxification or internal cleansing program, combine skin brushing with dry heat saunas. Do vigorous skin brushing before entering the sauna. Remain in the sauna until you bring on a full sweat. Remember, never create stress. Then, take a warm shower, followed by a quick cold shower. Dry off and dry skin brush again. Jump back into the sauna, and remain to the point of flowing perspiration. This is a powerful method for elimination of waste and toxins from the body. I personally repeat this process 3 times over a a period of 1 hour—it's fantastic!

Also as part of the detox/cleanse, be sure to drink lots of pure water to which has been added the following ingredients: raw apple cider vinegar (1 tsp. per pint of water), Grade C or B maple syrup (2 to 3 tbsp.), and a little red cayenne pepper powder (as much as you are able to tolerate). This is a fantastic method for removing waste weight!
