Good skin is an indication that your digestive system is working properly. People with skin problems such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, dry skin, oily skin etc…often suffer from imbalanced bacteria in the intestinal tract, acidic Ph and other digestive conditions.
What can you do to help cleanse your skin and your digestive tract?
1. Consume more water: A good rule of thumb is 1 oz of water for every lb of body weight. Most of us are lucky if we get half that amount. Water is necessary to cleanse your cells and eliminates waste products.
One of the best way to gauge your water intake is to fill a 1 gallon container to drink from each day. Warm or room temperature fluids are best as cold drinks tend to shock the body disrupting natural energy flow. Consuming drinks at room temperature also allows you to get more down. Try it! You will find you can drink more than you can if it is cold and you don't have to be worried about brain freeze!
2. Not Enough Fiber The Western American Diets lacks fiber - the average person requires approximately 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day and consumes on average only 12g.
Dry psyllium hulls are an excellent source of fiber. They can simply be taken in water or you can cook with them.
Fiber also helps to clean your intestinal tract and colon, very important considering the cause for most disease starts with blockage in the colon.
