Now that we’re on the topic of detoxification I want to talk a bit about dry skin brushing. I encourage all my clients to begin their Coffee Enema rituals with dry skin brushing.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and is responsible for 1/4 of the body’s detoxification via the lymph. Our lymphatic system primarily relies on our movement for its functioning. Skin brushing helps move lymph fluid.
Under normal circumstances the skin eliminates more than one pound of waste products every day! If skin pores are clogged, toxins will remain in the body. This stresses the body’s other organs of detoxification.
The brush used should be a long-handled, bath-type brush. It is essential that it contain natural bristles and not synthetic ones. Synthetic bristles will scratch the surface of the skin and are harsh and irritating. Keep your brush dry.
