Brush Away Toxins!

Subject: do you brush your body?

Dear Friend,

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.

“When you take the time to cleanse your physical body of accumulated stress and toxicity, you are rewarded with increased vitality and optimal health.” -Debbie Ford

Sincerely,

 The Next Advanced Team

Alzheimer’s Disease: Understanding the 6 Primary Threats to Brain Health

Alzheimer’s Disease: Understanding the 6 Primary Threats to Brain Health

Alzheimer’s disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Knowing this, it may come as a surprise to learn that only 16 percent of seniors are given cognitive evaluations during their routine medical check-ups.

Until recently, forgetfulness, lapses in judgment, and difficulty reasoning or solving problems have been thought to be a natural part of the aging process. Science is now coming to understand that what we often call “senior moments” are being caused by a downsizing of the brain’s neural network. These reductions within the brain can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
