The skin is the largest organ of the human body, covering an area of about 20 square feet. The skin has many roles including protection from microbes, protection from the elements in nature, it helps regulate body temperature, permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold, and helps release toxins from the blood.
The sweat glands in the skin play an active role in the excretory systems, the organs and glands that flush toxins and excess minerals from the body.

Basal cell carcinoma
Itchy, irritated, or inflamed skin is quickly becoming one of the most common presentations seen by our Integrative Health Practitioners.
Did you know that your skin conditions could be related to other health problems?
In many cases, skin conditions are strongly linked to disease processes occurring throughout the body, and this means they can become risk factors for other types of illness or disease. These connections are not something that patients or doctors should ignore or overlook.
Most traditional medicine contains powerful chemicals, which cause harmful side effects and can be dangerous. Countless creams, pastes, steroids, anti-histamines, and other medicines contain harsh chemicals. These treatments often end up causing even bigger problems and will only alleviate the external symptoms, not the internal causes.
We help clients get rid of eczema and other skin conditions through a combination of natural remedies and treatments. Most skin conditions are linked to other issues in the body such as allergies, leaky gut syndrome, gastrointestinal problems, inflammation, joint pain, and autoimmune diseases.
By taking a holistic approach to solve these skin problems, we eliminate the underlying root cause of the problem and their side effects. A combination of lifestyle changes, botanical medicines, nutritional supplements, therapeutic diets, and detoxification programs may be required to successful heal your condition.
Dry body brushing will boost circulation and stimulate the lymphatic system to release toxins. It can also reduce puffiness and cellulite.
Infrared sauna therapy for up to 30 minutes will not only help you to flush out toxins via your sweat, it will improve circulation and internal congestion, promote the elimination of heavy metals, and improve oxygenation of the blood.
Bathe in Apple Cider Vinegar. A hot bath prepared with a cup of organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar and a cup of Epsom salts will draw toxins out through the skin and help accelerate the cleansing process. This can also help to relieve joint pain as well as skin conditions such as eczema and acne.
Adequate hydration is required for adequate perfusion, which in turn is required for adequate function, including detoxification. So drink 2 to 3 liters of filtered water per day.
Regular daily exercise enhances the effectiveness of both the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems.
Every system of your body benefits from whole food eating. Specifically circulation is enhanced and the quality of lymph is enhanced by practices that boost immunity.
Get a massage. Massage stimulates the blood and lymph vessels, helping move the fluid along and enhancing detoxification.
Try manual lymph drainage therapy. A skilled practitioner can directly target the lymphatic system to activate lymphatic fluid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune system. The benefits of lymphatic drainage include a reduction in inflammatory response (both acute and chronic), enhanced detoxification and regeneration of tissue.
Spend some time on a rebounder. Bouncing up and down softly on a rebounder will not only get your blood pumping, but will also have a strong positive affect on enhancing the flow of lymph.
