Tyler Tolman shares this ancient wisdom, skin healing and cleansing technique.
Guasha is inexpensive and easy, here's what he says to do;
"Buy the cheapest bottle of triple distiller VODKA and some aluminium free BI-CARB SODA mix the 2 in a Jar with a lid till its a putty consistency. Have it next to you the next time you shower. Get In and rinse off. Then turn off the shower and scrub your entire body with this putty (I use a scrub brush, a mit or a loofah) I scrub head, face, arms, legs everywhere. You might even get an itch in certain spots. I recommend focusing more on those spots and when your done scrubbing. Get back into the shower and rinse off. That's it."
Ok so now when your skin is amazingly cleansed it is the best time to lather up with coconut oil. The antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties will penetrate deeply into your skin detoxing even further and replenishing your natural skin oils.
Tyler also shares "Sometimes I wonder if people realize that the skin works alot like the liver to keep us healthy and free from toxicity.
Did you know that when the skin is working optimally it eliminates upto 2 kgs of material per day? We are a civilization that believes putting some soap on our bodies is actually cleaning us. To some degree this is true, but most of the time soaps have chemicals for smell and other qualities that are actually carcinogenic.
Your skin is comprised of 7 layers of dermis and epidermis which if we want to function in the highest capacity to keep us toxin free than we need to give it a little more attention.
Most people don't realize that yeast, parasites, bacteria, fungus and petrochemical get clogged up in our skin. The skin is naturally an acidic environment which can become breeding grounds for things that would downright scare the crap out of you if you could see it.
So what's the solution? Well for this all we need to do is look back afew thousand years to the ancient Egyptians (known for their cleanliness and personal hygiene above all cultures) even the Greeks with their advancements and public bathing etc were dumbfounded at how clean and neat the Egyptians were.
So what did they do? Well originally grains were distilled to make alcohol to clean the skin! Yes "vodka" essentially was invented to clean wounds and open up and clean the largest organ of the body "the skin". They would mix this alcohol with what we today call "bicarb soda" into a putty consistency and they would scrub the skin all over their bodies to kill all the acidic bacteria etc and to open the skin so it could function optimally.
I have been sharing this of many processes for the last 5 years to thousands of people. Most of them can't believe how amazing their skin feels and looks after just afew sessions of this. Not to mention when going in the sun your body has the ability to make more Vit D and tends to tan easier and not burn. By simply adding coconut oil I have found many ozzies and others have been able to go out for hours in direct sun without burning.
A good friend of mine on the Gold Coast Michael brown (red head & fair skin) would easily burn every time he went into the sun. He started this process religiously and now can go out for hours and has a great tan.
This is important because petro chemicals in sunscreen actually cause skin cancer. And the more people that get skin cancer the more people use sunscreen it's a nasty cycle.
So imagine how much your liver and kidneys and other organs will love you if your skin is eliminating the brunt of the toxicity that gets into our bodies from these modern times."
