I have been eating raw with alot of green smothies, spirilina, burdock (pills), etc. I got a bad outbreak of eczema /rash on the back of my kneee (never have gotten it there before) about 2 months ago and its still not much better. Now i have like heat rash like things on my cheeks whihc i never had before either..does anyone know how long detox via skin lasts? anything i can do to expedite it? or alleviate it? The funny thing is that i don't have detox symptons through anything else
thanks in advance

A good number of months ago I had a face detox thing. It was weird. All these white (tiny) bumps like from every pore. I did a clay mask and it helped pull whatever this was out.
There's another thread floating around about MSM. Yvette and her mom both had quite a negative experience. It is a good reminder that not all super foods are super for all people at all times.
Perhaps it is a good time to take a break from the spirulina and see how that works. Same with the burdock root, maybe?
Unrelated, I am very in tune with how my body is affected and have found that stress and anxiety can cause a rash for me. That's another thing to think about.
I hope you get this figured out! It doesn't sound like much fun. :eek:
since you eat a lot of green smoothies, do you poop a lot? doing so helps clean the colon and will aid preventing released toxins from recirculating in your bloodstream. if you don't poop a lot, i suggest self-administered enemas (not the fleet kind. the re-usable 1 gallon bag kind) & colonics to help aid detox.
assist your body in detoxing, dry skin brushing could help, too.
when there's a skin condition, i tend to think the liver and/or kidney is impaired. both are the first organs for filtering. when they're overburdened or impaired, then cleaning out toxins goes to secondary organs like our skin.
eva's suggestions sounds logical as well. you may also consider doing a short water fast, juice fast, juice feast or mono-dieting (good option for ditching foods you are allergic to and are unaware of & then graudually re-introducing one food at a time)? ditch the super foods and go for foods in season, that are local to your area and that people are not known to be allergic to.
pay very close to your body.

So you think spiriluna could be causing it as well? I thought it was supposed to be good fro skin issues?
not specifically spiriluna. there are a lot of foods that have health benefits but some people's bodies just don't like.

David Wolfe recommends a colon hydrotherapy if you have skin problems while detoxing. It helps pull the toxins out through the colon rather than through the skin.
