Had a few request and concerns from students so I thought it was perfect timing to address this lovely topic.

*Skin* Sweating*Detox*

Your skin, which is your largest organ, not only protects your internal organs and systems, but it also can provide clues when something is wrong with another part of your body. In these ways, your skin is an important player in your overall health. The skin is comprised of three levels which work in  unison to maintain balance. Sometimes to maintain balance our internal intelligence  naturally detoxes to rid the unwanted.  Detox and skin go hand in hand, and at times can be quite frustrating.  So, you go to hot yoga, feel amazing, yet confused about the unwanted rash, itch, or whatever it may be.  We all know the famous Shrek quote, “Better out than in, I always say”. For real though, be patient, loving, and just do the best you can.


True fact, we have 2.6 million sweat glands throughout our body.   The three main ingredients  in sweat include sodium, chloride and potassium. Interestingly, none of the contents of sweat stink — it’s the bacteria on your skins surface that interacts with sweat.


The function of sweat is to cool your body down when it is overheated. The act of sweating, yoga postures and also re-hydration, moves blood more freely though the organs and that in turn is where the detox effects take place.

Detox is a touchy subject for some as it can seem counter-productive at times. Truth is, our bodies are amazing, perfect and intelligent.  Second, truth is, that our bodies natural healing system sometimes needs a kick start.  According to TCM (traditional Chinese medicine), detoxing is basically cleansing the blood especially through the liver where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. However, when this system is compromised, impurities aren’t properly filtered and every cell in the body is adversely affected.


To make it simple and fun, you can start by removing toxic habits. Right? We all know what is healthy and best for our body!
