The Basis for Dry Skin Brushing
The skin is our largest route of elimination, excreting more than 2 pounds of waste each day, and taking in air and sunshine. Our skin breathes! And yet, in most people, this vital route of detoxification is operating far below it’s capacity, because it is clogged with dead skin cells and the un-removed waste excreted through perspiring.
Dry skin brushing is a simple, inexpensive way of removing the waste from the skin and breaking down old toxic deposits through it’s unique action on the lymph vessels and capillaries. Our bodies make a new top layer of skin every 24 hours – skin brushing removes the old top layer, allowing the clean new layer to come to the surface, resulting in softer, smoother skin.
Draining the Lymph
The lymph is the interstitial fluid that bathes our cells, bringing them nutrients and removing their waste – all detoxification occurs first and foremost through the lymph. Our bodies contain far more lymph than blood, and yet the lymph is dependent upon outside forces for it’s circulation around the body; the lymph has no heart to pump it! Consequently, the lymph relies upon exercise and massage for it’s vital circulation, two things that are lacking in most people’s everyday lives.
For many years, the only way to drain the lymph was through lymph drain massage or manual lymphatic drainage, a powerful massage technique credited to have originated from ancient Chinese Medicine. Dry skin brushing prompts the body to release its’ toxic deposits into the lymph, whilst simultaneously cleansing the lymph itself, through it’s return to it’s two plexuses, or centers, near the heart.
Because of it’s ability to release the skin’s detoxification potential and to cleanse mucoid deposits from the cells directly into the colon, dry skin brushing is considered by many (including such luminaries as Bernard Jensen and Robert Gray) to be an essential part of any intestinal cleansing program.
