Q: I actually wanted to ask you about a facial condition I have now been dealing with for almost seven years. Most recently I consulted with a functional medicine practitioner who was able to help me improve my diet and I believe my digestion somewhat improved but my face really didn’t. I am gluten free but I do eat a fair amount of animal protein, which I try to always eat from grass or pasture raised animals. I’ve tried a number of different eating plans but I haven’t healed my red, inflamed, rosacea plagued face. I’m small – about 100 lbs – and I’m fairly active so I’m not looking to detox to lose weight. I’ve heard that I may benefit from kidney or liver healing support but I haven’t tried anything intensively yet. I’d love to hear about your recommendations.
A: Thank you for your inquiry.
I do receive a lot of questions about various skin disorders including rosacea, eczema, acne, genital herpes, etc. and all of them have one thing in common: they are created by impurities in the blood.
Because every skin disorder is a blood disorder, I highly recommend purifying the blood with herbs such as Burdock root, Oregon Grape root, Dandelion root, and Yellow Dock root. Those will also greatly benefit the major elimination channels of the body, especially the kidneys and liver.
I also highly recommend beginning a lifestyle that is completely free of all animal proteins and processed/packaged foods.
Last but not least, since all disorders are rooted in the metaphysical realm, please consider what burdens you carry in your life and attempt to release it. Has someone been getting “under your skin”, etc.? “Negative” emotions/feeling turn into physical toxins within the body affecting the body’s natural balance.
Hope this helps.
Peace & Blessings,
Q: I just read about Earth Healing Cafe’s 10 day liver/gallbladder juice detox. Do you think something like this would work for me or would it be better to try taking supplements or making tea with the herbs you listed?
A: The 10 Day Liver/Gallbladder/Blood Detox would greatly benefit you. When the herbs are combined, their action becomes even more potent. Our herbal formula uses vegan capsules which makes the herbs highly absorbable. Generally, taking herbs in capsule form provides a better results than using them as a tea or extract.
