Most people are completely unaware of the importance of the skin and it’s functions, therefore it is somewhat overlooked other than the daily ritual of showering or bathing.
The skin is not just a protective covering for the body; it plays a very important part in the elimination of waste products, sometimes being referred to as the third kidney.
A healthily functioning skin is capable of, and should, eliminate 1kg or more of waste acids daily. Any disturbed function or encumbrance of the skin shows in the outer edge of the iris as a dark scurf rim, being a good indication that the skin itself needs attention.
If the skin becomes encumbered, and has poor elimination, added strain is placed on the internal organs, causing them to eliminate much more toxic waste materials then necessary. This can eventually lead to such complaints as kidney disorders, liver complaints, migraine headaches, epilepsy and convulsions.
