One of my goals in my life is to teach people to be their own Health Detective. Our bodies are comprised of many interdependent systems and when there is an imbalance in one area it aﬀects the inner workings of others.
I call the skin our “second mouth” as it is the barrier for all the environmental “food” we are exposed to (internal/external) .With your skin being your largest organ at approximately 20 square feet for a 120lb. person – it is our ﬁrst line of defense. It has major functions to perform:
- temperature regulation
- absorption of nutrients
- a sensor connecting us to the outside world.
With all these bodily responsibilities the skin has, you can see how something in our environment (internal/external) can cause a response that may trigger the skin to perform diﬀerently in its attempt to return to its natural state of wellness. By slowing down enough to see the skin’s responses as the clues they are – we can begin to uncover and detect the best route for our return journey to balance and well-being.
Yet, often we forget about taking care of our skin as an organ!
