Have you ever heard of dry brushing? Dry brushing is used to improve lymphatic flow, improve circulation, and exfoliate dead skin. It also reduces cellulite, soothes the mind, improves digestion, and removes toxins.
In this modern age we are are exposed to an increasing amount of toxins. Processed foods, pesticides, skin care products, medications, alcohol, and environmental toxins are all toxic.
Our bodies have to process it! Our organs can become sluggish when trying to keep up with an abundance of toxins. When the liver cant keep up, the body will protect itself by storing the toxins. Yup. Toxins will make you fat, they get stored in fat cells and will get stored in your body as excess fluid.
Avoiding toxins is the first step in cleansing the body. We can do this through drinking more water, clean eating, using non-toxic cleaning and skincare products. We can also assist the body in detoxing by practices such dry brushing, detox baths, oil pulling, and by exercising. There are many foods and herbal supplements that will support the body through the detoxification process.
When your body isn't drowning in toxins you will have more energy, feel lighter, have a clearer mind, and will have a stronger immune system. Do yourself a favor and detox!
