Nearly all skin diseases such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis have one factor in common: gallstones in the liver. Almost every person with a skin disease also has intestinal problems and impure blood, in particular. These are mainly caused by gallstones and the harmful effects they have on the body as a whole. Gallstones contribute to numerous problems throughout the body – particularly in the digestive, circulatory, and urinary systems. In its attempt to eliminate what the colon, kidneys, lungs, liver, and lymphatic system are unable to remove or detoxify, the skin becomes flooded and overburdened with acidic waste. Although the skin is the largest organ of elimination in the body, it eventually succumbs to the acid assault. The toxic material is deposited first in the connective tissue underneath the dermis. When this ‘waste depot’ becomes saturated, the skin begins to malfunction.
Excessive amounts of noxious substances, cell debris, microbes from different sources (such as gallstones), and various antigens from improperly digested foods congest the lymphatic system and inhibit proper lymph drainage from the various, living layers of the skin. The toxins and putrefying protein from damaged or destroyed skin cells attract microbes and become a source of constant irritation and inflammation of the skin. Skin cells begin to suffer malnourishment, which may greatly reduce their normal interval of turnover (about once every month). This may also cause extensive damage to skin nerves.
If the sebaceous glands, which pour their secretion, sebum, into the hair follicles, become nutrient deficient, hair growth becomes abnormal and, in particular, scalp hair may fall out. When the body’s melanin supply becomes deficient, the hair turns gray prematurely. Sebum deficiency alters the healthy texture of the hair and makes it look dull and unattractive. On the skin, sebum acts as a bactericidal and fungicidal agent, preventing the invasion of microbes. It also prevents drying and cracking of the skin, especially when exposed to sunshine and hot, dry air.
A genetic predisposition toward developing baldness or any other skin disorder may play a role but is not a major causative factor, as is often assumed. Healthy skin functions are often completely restored and hair growth, particularly among women, is returned to normal once all gallstones are removed and the colon and kidneys/bladder are kept clean.
Second only to the brain in complexity, the liver masterminds the most intricate processes of digestion and metabolism, thereby affecting the life and health of every cell in the body. Gallstones in the liver are a major cause of illness and disorders in the body, including skin disorders.

The time when getting outside on the first sunny spring day is long gone. Only the very courageous or ‘careless’ who defy the grim warnings from medical mandarins and cancer specialists – wholeheartedly endorsed by the sunscreen industry – dare to venture forth into the ‘dangerous’ sun.
Fortunately, this view is beginning to crumble in the blatant absence of scientific proof that sunlight causes disease. What is being discovered instead is that lack of sun exposure is one of the greatest risk factors for disease.
A Long-Standing Treatment
Before antibiotic drugs were discovered, the healing power of sunlight was favored by the medical community, at least in Europe. Sunlight therapy, called heliotherapy, was indeed considered to be the most successful treatment for infectious diseases from the late 19th to the mid-20th century. Studies revealed that exposing patients to controlled amounts of sunlight dramatically lowered elevated blood pressure (up to 40 mm Hg drop), decreased cholesterol in the bloodstream, lowered abnormally high blood sugar in diabetics, and increased the number of white blood cells, which people need to help resist disease. Patients suffering from gout, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, arteriosclerosis, anemia, cystitis, eczema, acne, psoriasis, herpes, lupus, sciatica, kidney problems, asthma, and even burns, have all received great benefits from the healing rays of the sun.
Change Your Perceptions
Today, the sun is considered the main culprit for causing skin cancer, certain cataracts leading to blindness, and aging of the skin. Only those who take the ‘risk’ of exposing themselves to sunlight find that the sun makes them feel better, provided they don’t use sunscreens or burn their skin. The UV-rays in sunlight actually stimulate the thyroid gland to increase hormone production, which, in turn, increases the body’s basal metabolic rate. This assists both weight loss and improved muscle development. Therefore, if you want to lose weight or increase your muscle tone, expose your body to the sun on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, it is the ultraviolet (UV) portion of sunlight that is the most easily blocked by windows, houses, spectacles, sunglasses, sun lotions and clothing. UV light is known to activate an important skin hormone called solitrol. Solitrol influences our immune system and many of our body’s regulatory centers and, in conjunction with the pineal hormone melatonin, causes changes in mood and daily biological rhythms. The hemoglobin in our red blood cells requires UV light to bind to the oxygen needed for all cellular functions. Lack of sunlight can, therefore, be held co-responsible for almost any kind of illness, including skin cancer and other forms of cancer.
I encourage you to expose yourself to sunlight – in moderation. Ultraviolet rays have many benefits; if simply spending some time in nature can improve our moods, boost our immune systems, assist our bodies’ regulatory centers and biological rhythms, and improve our overall health, why should we fear the sun?

Rates of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, have been rising for at least the last three decades, and this increase has been largely blamed on exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun.
However, research published in the British Journal of Dermatology shows that the sun is likely nothing more than a scapegoat in the development of melanoma, and the sharp increase may actually be “an artifact caused by diagnostic drift.”
Melanoma Increases Due to Benign Disease, Not Sunlight
Diagnostic drift, according to the study, refers to a hefty increase in disease that is being fueled by non-cancerous lesions.
In fact, during the study period from 1991 to 2004, there were nearly 4,000 cases of melanoma included in the report, with an annual increase of 9.39 to 13.91 cases per 100,000 per year.
The researchers revealed that, rather than being fueled by increasing exposure to sunlight as is commonly suggested, the increased incidence was almost entirely due to minimal, stage 1 disease.
“There was no change in the combined incidence of the other stages of the disease, and the overall mortality only increased from 2.16 to 2.54 cases per 100,000 per year … We therefore conclude that the large increase in reported incidence is likely to be due to diagnostic drift, which classifies benign lesions as stage 1 melanoma.”
In other words, people are being diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer even when they have only a minimal, non-cancerous lesion, and these diagnoses appear to be skewing disease rates significantly. Further, adding even more credence to the growing body of evidence showing sun exposure is not the primary cause of melanoma, the researchers noted that the distribution of the lesions reported did not correspond to the sites of lesions caused by sun exposure.
“These findings should lead to a reconsideration of the treatment of ‘early’ lesions, a search for better diagnostic methods to distinguish them from truly malignant melanomas, re-evaluation of the role of ultraviolet radiation and recommendations for protection from it, as well as the need for a new direction in the search for the cause of melanoma.”
Is Lack of Sunlight a More Likely Culprit?
Despite all the bad press linking sun exposure to skin cancer, there’s almost no evidence at all to support it. There is, however, plenty of evidence to the contrary. Over the years, several studies have confirmed that appropriate sun exposure actually helps prevent skin cancer. In fact, melanoma occurrence has been found to decrease with greater sun exposure, and can be increased by sunscreens.
One of the most important facts you should know is that an epidemic of the disease has in fact broken out among indoor workers. These workers get three to nine times LESS solar UV exposure than outdoor workers get, yet only indoor workers have increasing rates of melanoma — and the rates have been increasing since before 1940.
There are two major factors that help explain this, and the first has to do with the type of UV exposure.
There are two primary types of UV rays from sunlight, the vitamin-D-producing UVB rays and the skin-damaging UVA light. Both UVA and UVB can cause tanning and burning, although UVB does so far more rapidly. UVA, however, penetrates your skin more deeply than UVB, and may be a much more important factor in photoaging, wrinkles and skin cancers.
A study in Medical Hypotheses suggested that indoor workers may have increased rates of melanoma because they’re exposed to sunlight through windows, and only UVA light, unlike UVB, can pass through window glass. At the same time, these indoor workers are missing out on exposure to the beneficial UVB rays, and have lower levels of vitamin D.
“We hypothesize that one factor involves indoor exposures to UVA (321–400nm) passing through windows, which can cause mutations and can break down vitamin D3 formed after outdoor UVB (290–320nm) exposure, and the other factor involves low levels of cutaneous vitamin D3.
After vitamin D3 forms, melanoma cells can convert it to the hormone, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, or calcitriol, which causes growth inhibition and apoptotic cell death in vitro and in vivo.
… We agree that intense, intermittent outdoor UV overexposures and sunburns initiate CMM [cutaneous malignant melanoma]; we now propose that increased UVA exposures and inadequately maintained cutaneous levels of vitamin D3 promotes CMM.”
To put it simply, UVB appears to be protective against melanoma — or rather, the vitamin D your body produces in response to UVB radiation is protective.
As written in The Lancet:
“Paradoxically, outdoor workers have a decreased risk of melanoma compared with indoor workers, suggesting that chronic sunlight exposure can have a protective effect.”
Vitamin D Helps Protect You Against Cancer
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that influences virtually every cell in your body, and is easily one of nature’s most potent cancer fighters. So I want to stress again that if you are shunning all sun exposure, you are missing out on this natural cancer protection.
Your organs can convert the vitamin D in your bloodstream into calcitriol, which is the hormonal or activated version of vitamin D. Your organs then use it to repair damage, including damage from cancer cells and tumors. Vitamin D’s protective effect against cancer works in multiple ways, including:
Increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer)
Reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells
Causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation)
Reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous
This applies not only to skin cancer but other types of cancer as well. Theories linking vitamin D to certain cancers have been tested and confirmed in more than 200 epidemiological studies, and understanding of its physiological basis stems from more than 2,500 laboratory studies, according to epidemiologist Cedric Garland, DrPH, professor of family and preventive medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Here are just a few highlights into some of the most noteworthy findings:
Some 600,000 cases of breast and colorectal cancers could be prevented each year if vitamin D levels among populations worldwide were increased, according to previous research by Dr. Garland and colleagues.
Optimizing your vitamin D levels could help you to prevent at least 16 different types of cancer including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, prostate, and skin cancers.
A large-scale, randomized, placebo-controlled study on vitamin D and cancer showed that vitamin D can cut overall cancer risk by as much as 60 percent. This was such groundbreaking news that the Canadian Cancer Society has actually begun endorsing the vitamin as a cancer-prevention therapy.
Light-skinned women who had high amounts of long-term sun exposure had half the risk of developing advanced breast cancer (cancer that spreads beyond your breast) as women with lower amounts of regular sun exposure, according to a study in theAmerican Journal of Epidemiology.
A study by Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., internationally recognized research scientist and vitamin D expert, found that about 30 percent of cancer deaths – which amounts to 2 million worldwide and 200,000 in the United States — could be prevented each year with higher levels of vitamin D.
When Using the Sun to Fight Cancer, the Dose is What Matters
When I recommend using the sun therapeutically, this means getting the proper dosage to optimize your vitamin D levels. This typically means exposing enough of your unclothed skin surface to get a slight pink color on your skin. Your exact time will vary radically depending on many variables, such as you skin color, time of day, season, clouds, altitude and age. The key principle is to never get burned, while still spending as much time as you can in the sun during the peak hours, as it is virtually impossible to overdose as long as you don’t get burned.
A common myth is that occasional exposure of your face and hands to sunlight is “sufficient” for vitamin D nutrition. For most of us, this is an absolutely inadequate exposure to move vitamin D levels to the healthy range. Further, if you use sunscreen, you will block your body’s ability to produce vitamin D!
And, contrary to popular belief, the best time to be in the sun for vitamin D production is actually as near to solar noon as possible which is 1 PM in the summer for most (due to Daylight Saving Time).. The more damaging UVA rays are quite constant during ALL hours of daylight, throughout the entire year — unlike UVB, which are low in morning and evening and high at midday.
When using the sun to maximize your vitamin D production and minimize your risk of malignant melanoma, the middle of the day (roughly between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.) is the best and safest time. During this time you need the shortest exposure time to produce vitamin D because UVB rays are most intense at this time. Plus, when the sun goes down toward the horizon, the UVB is filtered out much more than the dangerous UVA.
Once you reach this point your body will peak at about 10,000-40,000 units of vitamin D. Any additional exposure will only cause harm and damage to your skin. Most people with fair skin will max out their vitamin D production in just 10-20 minutes, or, again, when your skin starts turning the lightest shade of pink. Some will need less, others more. The darker your skin, the longer exposure you will need to optimize your vitamin D production.
Why Not Just Take Vitamin D from a Supplement?
You can get vitamin D3 in supplement form, and if sunlight or a safe tanning bed is not an option, this is a better choice than getting no vitamin D at all. If you do use a supplement, it now appears as though most adults need about 8,000 IU’s of vitamin D a day in order to get their serum levels above 40 ng/ml.
However, sunlight is really the superior source for vitamin D, as when you expose your skin to sunshine, your skin synthesizes vitamin D3 sulfate. This form of vitamin D is water soluble, unlike oral vitamin D3 supplements, which is unsulfated. The water-soluble form can travel freely in your bloodstream, whereas the unsulfated form needs LDL (the so-called “bad” cholesterol) as a vehicle of transport.
The oral non-sulfated form of vitamin D may not provide all of the same benefits as the vitamin D created in your skin from sun exposure, because it cannot be converted to vitamin D sulfate.
I believe this is a very compelling reason to really make a concerted effort to get your vitamin D requirements from exposure to sunshine, or by using a safe tanning bed (one with electronic ballasts rather than magnetic ballasts, to avoid unnecessary exposure to EMF fields). Safe tanning beds also have less of the dangerous UVA than sunlight, while unsafe ones have more UVA than sunlight. If neither of these are feasible options, then you should take an oral vitamin D3 supplement.
What Should Your Vitamin D Levels be for Cancer Protection?
In 2007 the recommended level was between 40 to 60 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml). Since then, the optimal vitamin D level has been raised to 50-70 ng/ml, and when treating cancer or heart disease, as high as 70-100 ng/ml.
I recommend you have your levels tested and regularly monitored to make sure they are in the therapeutic range. Your physician can do this for you, or another alternative is to join the D*Action study. D*Action is a worldwide public health campaign aiming to solve the vitamin D deficiency epidemic through focus on testing, education, and grassroots word of mouth.
When you join D*action, you agree to test your vitamin D levels twice a year during a five-year program, and share your health status to demonstrate the public health impact of this nutrient. There is a $60 fee each 6 months ($120/year) for your sponsorship of the project, which includes a complete new test kit to be used at home, and electronic reports on your ongoing progress.

Natural Treatment for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
Melanoma skin cancer is the deadliest form, but far more common are non-melanoma skin cancers, which impact millions of Americans every year.
If you or someone you love is affected, a cream containing eggplant extract, known as BEC and BEC5, appears to cure and eliminate most non-melanoma skin cancers in several weeks time. Unlike conventional skin-cancer treatment, which is often surgery, the eggplant-extract cream leaves no scarring and no visible sign a tumor or lesion was ever present. The eggplant extract appears to be exceptionally safe and only kills cancerous cells, leaving healthy cells untouched, and causes only minor side effects, such as itching and burning.
The leading researcher in this area today is Dr. Bill E. Cham, who reported as early as 1991 in Cancer Letters that:
“A cream formulation containing high concentrations (10%) of a standard mixture of solasodine glycosides (BEC) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of malignant and benign human skin tumors.
We now report that a preparation … which contains very low concentrations of BEC (0.005%) is effective in the treatment of keratoses, basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) of the skin of humans. In an open study, clinical and histological observations indicated that all lesions (56 keratoses, 39 BCCs and 29 SCCs) treated with [the preparation] had regressed.”
Dr. Cham’s latest study was published in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine this year. The paper includes two impressive case reports of 60-something men who were suffering from large basal cell carcinoma (BCC) or squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which had plagued them for years. The results upon treatment with a cream formulation of BEC (eggplant extract) twice a day are astounding, and you can view the pictures here.
Unfortunately, simply eating eggplant, tomatoes, peppers or similar veggies, while beneficial for many reasons, will not induce this same effect because the active components are not able to effectively penetrate your cells. This requires the addition of glycosides, molecules with various simple sugars attached to them that can latch on to receptors found on skin cancer cells.
Simple Skin Cancer Prevention Strategies
What’s even better than an inexpensive, safe and natural cure for skin cancer is, of course, preventing it in the first place. Your body is made to be in the sun, and, when done properly, sun exposure will be one of the best ways you can help reduce your risk of skin, and many other forms of, cancer. Along with optimizing your vitamin D levels, the carotenoid astaxanthin has also piqued the interest of researchers due to its ability to reduce signs of aging by helping protect your skin from sun damage. I personally take 8 mg every day to help limit any potential damage from sun exposure as most of the year I am able to spend one to two hours a day in the sun.
Consuming a healthy diet full of natural antioxidants is another useful strategy to avoid sun damage to your skin, as fresh, raw, unprocessed foods deliver the nutrients that your body needs to maintain a healthy balance of omega-6 and omega-3 oils in your skin, which is your first line of defense against sunburn.
Fresh, raw vegetables also provide your body with an abundance of powerful antioxidants that will help you fight the free radicals caused by sun damage that can lead to burns and cancer.

The entire cosmetic industry is in a buyer beware state of alert, thanks to the latest additions to the melting pot of chemicals and pollutants in skin care, above and beyond the usual parabens. Consumers are warned by experts to put on the watch list any makeup which contains synthetic coloring ingredients, emulsifiers, leads, copolymer, triclosan, and “urea as a preservative.” Also contributing to the chemical compounds are phthalates, formaldehyde, and petroleum.
Without proper regulations, especially regarding testing how chemicals react to one another in combinations, it is scary how quickly the industry has become a problem for women and men alike. Some lipsticks are loaded with lead. If you think it doesn’t matter because it’s just on your skin, think again. Deodorants and shampoo must also be included in the equation. There are plenty of solutions to the problem, but where do you begin?
Start by viewing the issues as long term consequences instead of short term benefits. In fact, there are critical trade offs when it comes to using products for beauty and hygiene that contain chemicals. Skin cancer can have roots, and the removal of them can leave scars on your nose or even around your mouth. Consumers shouldn’t count on “all natural” labels and similar advertisements because current regulations on the use of those buzzwords are almost non-existent.
In the United States, the personal care industry goes largely unregulated. For starters, the FDA has not set limits for lead in cosmetics unless the lead is used for color additives. Also many fragrances are synthetic. Ever heard of or seen on the ingredients list Diazolidinyl or Imidazolidinyl Urea? One does not have to pronounce them in order to find them on the ingredients list on the back of a box or bottle. Just set it down and keep looking.
Do not leave out the average man in the United States, who might easily put 6 to 8 personal care products on his skin repeatedly every 24 hours. Facial soaps, shampoo, conditioner and deodorants will likely contain at least one of 10 carcinogenic chemicals, and the combination of chemicals seep through the skin, into the bloodstream, creating havoc for healthy cells.
The Safe Cosmetic Act of 2010 uses terminology like aggregate exposure, vulnerable populations, and people with compromised immune systems, but it seems as though everybody fits into at least two categories. Are you still willing to take the same chances?
Synthetic colors are listed as D&C or FD&C, but even though these are regulated by the industry, they are still mostly derived from coal tar, which, when injected in lab mice, causes cancer. Many previously approved colors are now banned across the world because of known carcinogenic properties.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), the ingredient which provides that shiny, smooth, varnish look, comes at a steep price, and not just in dollars and cents. Banned in Europe, this dangerous toxin can pose a threat to the nervous system, even by simply inhaling the fumes. Women who sit and relax at salons and boutiques for hours on end might even feel intoxicated when they exit. Pregnant women especially beware. The long term effects include impaired fetal development and deformed male reproductive organs.
Triclosan is found in more than a handful of cosmetics, and now even in toothpaste, because it’s supposed to kill bacteria. Triclosan was initially developed as a surgical scrub for medical professionals, and not for putting around your eyes or for scrubbing your teeth and gums daily, but somehow the FDA has approved it for general consumption.
Here come two more ingredients the average human being cannot pronounce. Diethanolamine and Triethanolamine, more easily recognized as DEA and TEA, used extensively for emulsifying products. Combine the two chemicals, and if you’re a scientist, you’re watching the lab rats die from cancerous tumors. The only “panel of experts” out there recommends you only use them in small doses, but what about the cumulative effect that builds up over time and from the laundry list of products that contain them?
Many synthetic nail colors, lipsticks, sunscreens and whitening toothpastes now contain lead and other metals. Titanium dioxide is found in concealers and even diaper ointments. Some metals are used for color, and certain kinds of lip glosses even contain aluminum compounds. The infamous D&C Red 6 may contain mercury and arsenic in addition to the lead. Also, zinc is used in moisturizers, which clogs pores, preventing them from breathing properly.
Petrolatum is basically petroleum and is commonly found in moisturizers. It forms an oily layer on the skin which blocks moisture evaporation. Just as aluminum in antiperspirants dangerously blocks and traps sweat, petroleum has adverse effects on skin; however, since it’s so cheap for makeup manufacturers, it’s even found in baby creams and wax depilatories.
Now in 2011, there are well over 200 ingredients under the umbrella term “fragrance,” and manufacturers are not required to disclose any of the actual ingredients in their formulas. Don’t lose hope though, because there are natural, non-toxic preservatives that are both safe and effective.
In the long term, you are saving a fortune when you buy truly natural and organic products in comparison to the health care costs of future treatments, including surgery from using toxins on your face and body. Along with consumer education comes the gradual phase out of the bad guys in the natural skin care industry. Word combinations like sodium lauryl sulfate aren’t so hard to pronounce anymore.

Healing Chronic Dermatological Condition Around the Eyes
Hi, this is with regards to a person seeking healing information for chronic dermatological condition around her eyes and when I looked at the picture I clearly saw that the there is major congestion in the eyes, very puffy eyes, the eyelids are very puffed up and it clearly shows that there is a lymph drainage issue where lymph that contain metabolic waste products and dead cell material is not readily removed from the eyes and this has really nothing to do with the eyes themselves, eyes have no capability of creating swollenness around the eyes, there is just no treatment to improve that except by going to the root causes.
And when lymph drainage issues occur where water and toxins and waste products are retained around the eyes that shows that the kidneys are not capable in removing all the fluids from the system and the lymphatic system itself is congested and the congestion in the lymphatic system always finds its source, its main area of congestion in the belly button area and that is the abdominal area where the central part of the lymph system exists.
It is called cisterna chyli vessel system and it is connected to all the lymph vessels that come from the legs, that come from the abdominal region, from the organs like kidneys and the stomach, small intestine, large intestine, the liver, the spleen, so all those organs drain their own metabolic waste products into this giant pool so to say of lymph where these waste products that are passed into these areas are supposed to be detoxified and once the lymph has been detoxified and waste matter has been broken down or removed then the lymph can move into the blood stream near the heart and the problem is that the main center part, the cisterna chyli vessel, being congested will also lead to accumulation of waste products in other areas that are distant from this cisterna chyli vessel. There is particularly one duct, it is called the thoracic duct, and that duct moves from the belly button area all the way up to the throat area and the thoracic duct is responsible from draining out the parts of the facial area and eyes and if the thoracic duct is clogged out because of the abdominal lymph is congested then the lymph drainage from the eyes is not adequate and the eyes start to swell out.
So instead of targeting the symptoms thinking there is something wrong with the eyes one should put the attention on the lymph congestion, why does the lymph , the lymphatic system get clogged up and the answer to that is because we are not digesting food properly when food is remaining undigested or improperly digested it is being decomposed, it is fermented or putrefied that means the bacteria that decompose the foods produce poisons , toxins, and these toxins are absorbed into the lymphatic system around the belly button area so this necessitates an accumulation of fluid, lymph fluid, water, mostly water, in order to keep some of these toxins neutral and in this way the body at least it is protected of these toxins moving freely into the blood stream which can cause serious consequences such as blood poisoning and the body is very protective of the blood so wants to make sure that there is as much neutralization through water retention as possible in order to keep the bodies tissue from being damaged. So these swollen eyelids and puffy eyes is actually a protective mechanism that temporarily helps the eyes, it protects the eyes in this instance, and should not be misconstrued as being an illness and it should not be targeted through methods that are not really dealing with the root cause of the problem and the digestion itself is a very much controlled by the liver so it takes us back to how much bile the liver is capable of producing or not producing, if the person makes very little bile, food is not digested properly and you have intestinal congestion that leads to lymphatic congestion which in turn can create these localized disturbances in different parts of the body such as the eyes.
So, liver flushes are very useful in this respect plus changing the diet stop eating lymph congesting foods such as cheese, milk, sugar and animal proteins like meat, chicken, fish, eggs and so on, so, by not having those foods a lot of the lymph congestion disappears very quickly and this should be seen in a diminishment of the congestion around the eyes.
I hope this helps and I wish you a great day.

Hi, this is with regard to your question whether sunscreens are still useful or beneficialin some respect… and I tend to negate that. Sunscreens have notoriously been shown to create problems and not just to the skin but to the rest of the body. Mind you that most of the sunscreens that exist are synthetically produced chemicals that have carcinogenic effects so it is not just that you put this stuff on your skin, but it goes actually into your blood and once it is carried to the liver, a lot of strong reactions can occur that can lead to bile duct congestion and then poor blood circulation to the skin itself which can weaken it and make it, in fact, prone to injury against, from, ultraviolet radiation particularly UV-A rays.
Now sunscreens do not always work the way they are designed to work, many times you have areas in the skin that are not completely covered and even if the sunscreens block out the UV-A and the UV-B, there will still be areas where UV-A penetration is coming though, goes very, very deeply. One you block UV-B with sunscreens, UV-A goes so much deeper than it is normally possible and that can create damage to skin cells. There has been no proof however that UV-A can destroy or can damage the genes directly, in fact, the opposite is true it has been proven that sunlight and UV radiation cannot cause genetic mutation leading to skin cancers.
So there is a lot of misconception in this field and I want to clarify as well, that in places where sunscreens are used on a mandatory basis, like a town for example in Australia, where every single person is putting sunscreens on their skin and they have the highest skin cancer rates in the world!!! And places where sunscreens are not used at all, you go, for example, to places in Italy where Italians, they just do not even know about sunscreens, they do not put it on their skin and they have virtually no skin cancers in those areas. Also near the Equator in Caribbean countries, people living there rarely ever have skin cancers.
Besides, skin cancers occur to the most extent in areas of the skin that are never even exposed to the sun, so that cannot be explained that way, by saying we were using sunscreens. Most people do not put it under the arms or in the buttocks area or in places where they are covered up by swimsuits anyway. So the idea that the sun causes skin cancer is so unscientific, it has nothing to do with the reality of the matter and again, there is no scientific proof as yet to show after so many years trying to that, the sun causes skin cancer.
On the other had there is research to show that indirectly, sunglasses, having sunshades on the eyes, can contribute to skin cancer and how does that happen? Well there is a powerful hormone in the brain that responds to light, and so when you put sunshades or sunglasses and you are out in the nature and the sun does shine, your body does not recognize that it is light outside and it will stop the production of melanin which is the natural sunscreen of the body, and if the melanin is not produced sufficiently, then the UV-A rays and UV-B, which are responsible for, the latter… responsible for sunburn, if you get over exposed, then you can develop damage to the skin. So again, one has to look at what is natural and what is not.
Sunglasses are not natural, if we had a need for them we would have been born with sunshades in our eyes, in the lenses of our eyes, but we are not supposed to do that, we are supposed to trigger the production of melanin as soon as we are exposed to the sun and that protects our skin against any potential harm from the sun.
There are some body types that are prevalent in countries like Sweden, Denmark, Norway – very, very light skin color, reddish skin tones, they are called Pitta types, the most prone to the heat and any form of heat that includes heat from the sun, the Pitta types, and I have discussed that in great detail in my book in “HEAL YOURSELF WITH SUNLIGHT” and also in “TIMELESS SECRETS OF HEALTH AND REJUVENATION” which discuses the different body types and the Pitta body type is the only one that has to be more careful about going into the sun for various reasons and one of which is to not over heat, very important for the pitta type, he needs to be more in cold places. They still benefit from being out in nature and exposing the skin indirectly to the sun, there is still ultra violet radiation even in the shade but for them it is very important to do that as well. Having said that, because otherwise they do not develop vitamin D production which is by the steroid hormone that regulates numerous functions in the body, controls thousands of genes and it is also responsible for making sure that skin cancer does not occur.
The imbalance that many people experience when they do get exposed to the sun and get skin damage or reddening or burning, it is more likely because of an acid-forming diet and lifestyle, eating fats, for example, that are derived from fried foods, refined foods, hydrogenated vegetable oils particularly damaging to the skin, and once ultra violet radiation combines with these trans fatty acids that are in the skin membranes, then there can be a very strong reaction… basically a reaction to get rid of some of these fatty acids which, as they make their way out through the skin, can cause damage or healing reactions which are known to be skin problems.
So the skin problem or the eruption or even the skin cancer is not really a disease it is corrective mechanism and it is important to differentiate between a disease and a healing response. So when the body is trying to get rid of the carcinogenic chemicals contained in the sunscreens, then that is a natural normal reaction, the skin tries to shed these poisons , chemicals, that cause inflammation of skin cells.
So, having said that, there is just something that came in the news this morning that professors of dermatology now even recommend that people put the sunscreen on before they go to bed in the evening or even a month before they plan to go out in the sun. Which is horrific because putting these deadly chemicals, if they were ingested through the food a person will become poisoned, but it is irresponsible to make people and young children to absorb poisons even faster through the skin.
The skin can absorb so many chemicals that normally could not cause as much damage as if you ingested them with your food. So it is very, very risky advice to tell people they need to use sunscreen. There are some oils that have protective effects… like coconut oil… which is much preferable than any of the UV blocking chemicals found in sunscreens.

Nearly all skin diseases such as eczema, acne and psoriasis, have one factor in common: gallstones in the liver. Almost every person with a skin disease also has intestinal problems and impure blood, in particular. These are mainly caused by gallstones and the harmful effects they have on the body as a whole. Gallstones contribute to numerous problems throughout the body – particularly in the digestive, circulatory and urinary systems. In its attempt to eliminate what the colon, kidneys, lungs, liver and lymphatic system were unable to remove or detoxify, the skin becomes flooded and overburdened with acidic waste. Although it is the largest organ of elimination in the body, it eventually succumbs to the acid assault. The toxic material is first deposited in the connective tissue underneath the dermis. When this ‘waste depot’ is saturated, the skin begins to malfunction.
Excessive amounts of noxious substances, cell debris, microbes from different sources, such as gallstones, and various antigens from improperly digested foods congest the lymphatic system and inhibit proper lymph drainage from the various layers of the skin. The toxins and putrefying protein from damaged or destroyed skin cells attract microbes and become a source for constant irritation and inflammation of the skin. Skin cells begin to suffer malnutrition, which may greatly reduce their normal interval of turnover (about once every month). This may also cause extensive damage to skin nerves.
If the sebaceous glands, which pour their secretion, sebum, into the hair follicles, become nutrient deficient, hair growth becomes abnormal and, in particular, scalp hair may fall out. When melanin supply becomes deficient, the hair turns gray. Sebum deficiency also alters the healthy texture of the hair and makes it look dull and unattractive. On the skin, sebum acts as a bactericidal and fungicidal agent, preventing the invasion of microbes. It also prevents drying and cracking of the skin, especially when exposed to sunshine and hot, dry air.
Genetic predisposition towards developing baldness or any other skin disorders is not a major causative factor, as is often assumed. Healthy skin functions are restored and hair growth, particularly among women, is returned to normal once all gallstones are removed and the colon and kidneys/bladder are kept clean.
