Subject: do you brush your body?
Are you ready to find out how to brush away toxins?
You heard that right. A hairbrush is a pretty standard household item, but what about a body brush?
Well after you read this, you might go out and get one!
With the skin being the body’s largest organ, it’s no wonder it has a big job to do. Outside of protecting our internal organs, regulating our temperature, and sensing pain, the body also serves as a conduit for absorbing and releasing environmental hazards. This is where body brushing can help. By dry brushing the body, you can help stimulate the lymphatic system to expedite the excretion of toxins that can otherwise build up in the body.
Pretty amazing, right?
Body Brushing is a great self- care practice and a mindful method you can use to tune into your body, relieve stress and stimulate your senses.
To try this yourself, you’ll need a brush with natural bristles. Before you get into the bath or shower, dry brush your entire body, starting at your feet and brushing each area with ten smooth strokes up toward the center of the body
If brushing hurts in any way, you are applying too much pressure. It should feel wonderful and leave your skin soft and glowing.
We have a saying here at Next Advanced Medicine; “The only way out is through.” It is necessary to regularly practice methods of eliminating toxins from our body, in order to keep it operating at optimal health.
