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
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.

Dr. Christopher Bosler, DC, affectionately called “Dr. B”, obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology, after which he received his doctorate in chiropractic. Dr. Bosler then specialized in clinical neuroscience and rehabilitation through the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies. Early in his study, he discovered functional medicine and the power it has to improve the lives and well being of patients. Dr. Bosler has had 9 years of postdoctoral education in functional medicine and clinical nutrition and helped guide hundreds of patients to reverse their disease condition. “Dr. B” is happy to be part of our amazing team at Next Advanced Medicine where we continue to change the world of healthcare.
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.
Dr. Candice Hall is bringing her knowledge of functional medicine and nutritional based healthcare to the Keiro Symposium on Oct. 5th. As their keynote speaker, Dr. Hall will discuss the value of treating the contributing factors and causations of chronic and degenerative diseases, not just treating the symptoms.
Dr. Hall specializes in functional medicine which focuses on using integrative therapies to put the patient at the center of their treatment plan. Functional and integrative medicine aims to restore and manage a patient’s health and wellness across an entire lifespan. We address a broad range of physical, nutritional, emotional, mental and environmental influences that can be negatively impacting one’s health.
By shifting the focus off of the disease and redirecting our efforts towards the patient, Dr. Hall has found it leads to improved health in the long term. Our collective goal is to find the source of the problem and provide lasting wellness through personalized healthcare solutions and achievable lifestyle changes.
Dr. Candice Hall recently published an article on shifting the direction and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease on ThirdAge.com.
It is estimated that 5.8 million Americans are living with the effects of Alzheimer’s dementia. With a new case developing every 65 seconds, that figure is expected to surge to 7.1 million people by 2025.
People who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease experience a progressive escalation of symptoms that increase like the temperature of a pot of water over an open flame. The most common manifestations include memory loss, challenges solving problems, difficulty completing tasks, misplacing things, general confusion, and mood swings. When these signs reach a boiling point, it’s often too late to address them with any hope of long-lasting success.
However, there is hope for cases that are diagnosed and managed with early, customized treatment programs. Research has identified that combining the foundational tools of a keto diet, exercise, brain stimulation, sleep, and supplements is a useful way to start shifting the direction and progression of the disease.
