This is a great post from Laurie Leigh. Thank you for all you do to help us all understand our bodies.
Are you open to expanding your mind on what is going on in the physical body when skin conditions appear? My research has led me to uncover Anthony William’s work. He explains that an overburdened liver is the cause of eczema, psoriasis, acne and other skin conditions. The skin is the largest cleansing organ of the body. When rashes appear, it is a sure thing that there is some stress happening with internal organs.
The liver plays a HUGE role in keeping our physical bodies free of the myriad of toxins that are constantly being absorbed into the body, from environmental sources, food sources, water, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, cigarettes…the list is long. The liver’s job is to clean all of these out of the bloodstream, sending clean blood up to the heart. When the liver becomes overburdened, it ends up doing its best to send the toxins out through the kidneys, intestines and skin. When a rash appears, something is definately going on with the liver.
How do you relieve the liver?
ONE: Eliminate all dairy and eggs, as these foods feed viruses and bacteria present in the body, through their fat and hormone content. As the viruses and bacteria feed off the fat and hormones, they release a toxic waste called a dermatoxin, that is like poison to the physical body and causes inflammation and irritation.
TWO: Reduce your meat consumption to once a day. Meat is fat. The liver must clean all this fat out of the bloodstream. When 3 meals a day, 365 days a year, of meat, dairy and eggs keeps coming at the liver, it cannot keep up. (If you have had your gallbladder removed, it is essential that you seriously reduce your fat intake, as the gallbladder holds the bile made by the liver to digest fatty foods. No vessel, no bile, no digestion of fats. Not a good situation). As this barrage of fat and protein continues, the stomach sends its reserves of hydrochloric acid to help the liver digest the fatty foods. This ends up burning out the stomach, lowering the hydrochloric acid levels, causing acid reflux and digestive discomfort. This is further exacerbated by the stomach’s inability to digest the heavy intake of protein, resulting in this food sitting at the bottom of the stomach, rotting.
The high intake of fat from meat, dairy and eggs overburdens the liver, interfering with its ability to clean the blood. When there is a high content of fat in the bloodstream, it chokes out available oxygen, causing acidic conditions. Cancer thrives in acidic conditions and cannot thrive in conditions that are alkaline and oxygenated. The over 70 trillion cells that make up our body need nutrients and oxygen, not fat. Fat also blocks the insulin receptors, causing diabetic conditions.
THREE: Increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables. There isn’t a fruit or vegetable on the planet that is designed to hurt us. These foods are the Elixir of Health for the physical body and are readily digested and utilized for their high content of vitamins and minerals. If you eat any fruit and vegetable and it causes discomfort, it is getting caught up in the rotting protein at the bottom of your stomach, or running into backed up waste in the intestines. Fruit and vegetables are also the perfect carbohydrate to balance out the blood sugar, feed the brain and muscles and keep the storage reserve of glucose in the liver. The liver keeps this storage of glucose to protect the pancreas, should we not eat for hours. Fasting is very hard on the pancreas. A low-carb diet is literally starving your physical body of necessary glucose to run the physical body well. Fruits and vegetables are also natural blood thinners.
FOUR: Consider juicing celery. Yes, celery, one of the most underrated vegetables out there. Drinking 16 oz of celery juice every morning provides the physical body with a host of benefits. It is the perfect solution for resetting the hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Acid reflux is caused by not enough stomach acid. If you take an antacid tablet and further suppress your hydrochloric acid, you are in for a world of digestive hurt! Celery juice will help this situation immensely. It also calms and reverses inflammation in the body, relieving many chronic illnesses. It contains a multitude of mineral salts that act together as an antiseptic, breaking down the pathogen’s cell membranes and destroying them. These mineral salts keep your kidneys and adrenals functioning and raise your gut’s hydrochloric acid, balances your pH as well as cleanses and repairs your stomach, digestive tract and your liver! These salts are an important support for the central nervous system and extremely healing for depression, brain fog, anxiety, confusion, bipolar disorder and more. The list of benefits from drinking celery juice is breathtaking!
WHERE TO START?
Be Aware. Understand that a high fat, high protein, low carb diet is causing much distress in the physical body, especially on the liver. All of the organs work to protect each other. Our body does not attack itself! It is UNDER attack from the host of chemicals in our air, water, food, pharmaceuticals, laundry detergent, air fresheners, cosmetics…there are hundreds of troublemakers for the liver. Start by drinking 16 oz of celery juice every morning. Pay attention to how much fat you are ingesting in a day and work to lower it. Cut WAY back on dairy and eggs, with the intent to eliminate them. Eat more fruits and vegetables…with no fear!
The MIND BODY & SOUL trilogy is also a great tool for taking pressure off of the liver. They give you a quick, easy and effective way to nourish the dopamine reward centers in your brain and gut with a nootropic stack of nutrients and supplements found in the superfoods that help to crush your cravings, effectively giving you back control of what goes in your mouth. BODY’s patented blend helps to increase the blood flow throughout your body, efficiently transporting the red blood cells carrying nutrients and oxygen to all the cells in your body by increasing the Nitric Oxide. Pair the trilogy and replenish your nutrients with VitaliTea, our 7-day detox tea with the NOURISH and you create a clean, healthy blood flow. All blood is cleaned through the liver before being transported up to the heart. The cleaner the blood, the less stress on the liver.
This information is presented here to help you think outside of the box. We are already doing that with the Valentus lineup of amazing products. Modern medicine has its place. However, when it comes to chronic illnesses or unexplained symptoms like skin conditions, they cannot fix it with a pill. It MUST come from our food sources. That is how the body is made, to survive on good nutrition, clean air, deep breathing, laughter and lots of sunshine. We have lost touch with the real medicine in our world. Cheers! Laurie Leigh
