Skin is the 8th detox organ. Skin performs many beneficial functions but it does undergo changes and damage. Ageing and illnesses take their toll, while wounds, burns and skin diseases, including cancer, can damage this organ. Causes can also be internal such as immunological abnormalities, environmental, food allergies and emotional elements such as stress. In some cases, the skin can show signs of an internal disease before the disease advances and becomes more serious.
According to Chinese Medicine principles, skin swellings are often due to Damp-Heat toxins, Stomach Heat, Heat in the Blood, Liver Heat, Qi Stagnation, Wind-Heat, Blood Deficiency and Yin Deficiency. Along with the aging process, a sluggish metabolic rate and an excess of waste products will inevitably lead to malnourished skin causing dullness, wrinkles, age spots, dryness and hair loss as well as brittle and deformed nails. Taking the right diet & supplements by identifying your skin’s imbalances is one way to help eliminate toxic substances from your skin and improve your health holistically.
