The skin is the largest organ of the body. One of its functions is to eliminate a portion of the body’s toxic waste products. If the body contains more toxins than the kidneys, liver and colon can effectively discharge, the skin takes over. As toxins escape through the skin, they disrupt the skin’s healthy integrity. Acne sores, skin boils and rushes are common examples in getting rid of excess wastes. Inner toxicity is a key factor behind many skin disorders. There is a strong association between a toxic state of the colon and many types of skin manifestations.
Other causes of many skin problems are food and chemical sensitivities: allergy, infection, inflammation, stress, nutritional and hormonal disorders or just a poor diet.
For many people skin problems can be better managed, and even completely cured, by attending to your overall health, not just your skin. A health and clean body will most likely have healthy skin to show for it.
