Ok everyone! Who’s for a little experiment?
Roll up your sleeves and feel the skin on your upper arms – back and front. Do you have raised bumps or “chicken skin”?
If the answer is yes then you most likely have a food intolerance or internal imbalance. This raised, bumpy skin is called Keratosis Pilaris.
Like all skin conditions, the root cause of Keratosis Pilaris is likely the result of an internal imbalance. All skin conditions indicate that the internal organs are not properly processing nutrients and/or toxins.
Any toxins that build up in excess are pushed outward to the skin as a last resort for elimination, because the other elimination organs are not able to process the toxic load. Some skin conditions can also be caused by a lack of essential nutrients.
Take a quiet moment and try to reconnect with your body (oh come on now, lets get our hippy on!). How are you feeling? Do you have any other symptoms of ill health? Fatigue, headaches, digestive issues, dizzy spells, persistent cough or cold…? Just feeling…meh?
If so….sort it out. When you have food intolerance, no matter how mild, you will not be absorbing enough nutrients from your food and your body will be under constant stress. What seems mild now could manifest into something more serious, or harder to live with as time goes on.
We’re here for a good time, not a long time so at least let yourself feel good enough to enjoy this crazy life! To. The. Max.
