The approach of any holistic medicine implies, first of all, the elimination of the causes of a disease state. This approach is especially important in the treatment of the skin, because it is always a reflection of the body’s internal problems. Fortunately, nature has prepared many herbs and oils that cleanse a person from the inside.
Milk thistle (milk thistle) protects healthy liver cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. It stimulates the regeneration of new cells and helps the body to cleanse itself of toxins. Milk thistle increases the production of glutathione, one of the body’s main antioxidant substrates. This herb has no side effects, except that it can act as a laxative as it increases the flow of bile.
Turmeric, due to its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, protects the liver from toxins. It has a positive effect mainly on the liver, and therefore is used in most detox programs. Like milk thistle, turmeric can loosen stools somewhat. Turmeric stimulates bile production by more than 100%. It is worth noting: if you have an obstruction of the bile ducts, you should not use turmeric.
Dandelion – suitable for cleansing the liver and kidneys. It has diuretic properties, while not removing potassium from the body. Dandelion detox is also recommended for skin conditions.
Mug has a high content of fructo-oligosaccharides, which allow you to increase beneficial bifidobacteria and eliminate pathogens that “live” in our intestines. In addition, burdock stimulates the production of saliva and bile, which, in turn, break down and are involved in the removal of toxins from the body.
Sarsaparilla – a plant with anti-inflammatory properties to treat the liver, diaphoretic properties to remove toxins through sweat. It is used for skin conditions such as abscesses, acne, boils and psoriasis. Sarsaparilla contains saponins, which act as a diuretic and help the kidneys cleanse.
Coconut oil – antifungal, antibacterial, anti-everything-you-don’t-need – it can be used in a variety of variations. Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan, raw foodist, or out of the diet, everyone loves coconut oil and can be added anywhere. The effect of coconut oil against Candida fungi is known. In the East, everyone knows about the wonderful effect of coconut on skin health!
