One of the best ways to avoid heavy metals and detoxification is to maintain a good skin brushing schedule before you go into the shower. Metals, heavy metals and other toxins build up in our bodies over time. When they are unable to be removed through the pores, they settle into the soft tissue and become trapped. Toxins cannot travel through the pores of the skin. As long as they remain trapped, they will continue to accumulate and cause damage.
If you do not get a full body skin brushing before showering, the toxins will spread throughout your body. In the bathroom, they can easily be spread by using a toothbrush or other rough instruments. For this reason, it is important to get a good body scrub at least once a week. It is best to find a gentle body scrub made with natural ingredients that will clean your dry skin thoroughly.
Cleansing is not the only purpose for doing skin brushing before showering. Our hands and arms are also areas of high moisture. Our hands and arms are also connected to the internal systems of our bodies. If these areas are not cleaned, we can cause problems such as constipation, bloating, diarrhea, headaches and fatigue. Our lymphatic drainage is very important for proper functioning of all organs in the body.
When we bathe, a lot of the harmful chemicals and detergents escape into the moist environment of our skin and enter the bloodstream. This can cause a variety of health problems. When we shower, however, most of the harmful substances are washed away into the lymphatic system and transported to the kidney and liver. Our kidneys and livers then excrete wastes from the body through the entries.
Enmaries are the network of tubing that connects the lower intestine and the rectum. These are used to collect feces and other waste matter that are excreted through the enlarge. Properly cleansing the entries is extremely effective way to prevent constipation, bloating, diarrhea and fatigue. You can use either a commercial or homemade cleanser or just plain old water for this purpose. Some people like to add some essential oils to the water for extra benefits. I personally like to do my dry skin brushing before going into the shower.
This is especially important if you live in a dry climate. The drier it is outside, the more toxins are released into the air. Dry climates also produce more sweat than do wet climates. Drinking lots of water after a good night’s sleep is a great way to avoid toxins being released into the air when you shower.
