Here’s a little known fact for you:
If you look very closely at the iris (the colored part) of your eyes, you can actually gauge how well your skin is eliminating toxins. Do you see a darker ring around the outermost edge of the iris? That’s called a scurf mark, which, according to Dr. David Jernigan, DC, published author and nationally recognized as a leader in Biological Medicine and the treatment of chronic illness, isn’t a disease of the eye, but a reflex sign of an overload of toxins at the level of the skin. A person with a scurf ring may have a weak thyroid, which would reduce the body’s natural sweating and elimination through the skin, the body’s third kidney. The longer it takes to remove toxins from your body, the longer you’re going to be sick, or the longer you’re going to get those headaches, etc.
One of the best ways to get your body to detox better is dry skin brushing. Check out Dr. David Jernigan’s article to find out exactly why dry skin brushing is so beneficial and to get instructions on how to do it properly.
Keep an eye on your iris to watch your progress in your detox protocols!
