Silica and Beautiful Skin!

Silica and Beautiful Skin!

I am always asked... What do you do to your skin?... Well it's not necessarily what I am doing to my skin but yes I do have a very advanced and strict topical skincare regime, but most importantly what do I do for my skin from the inside out...

There are numerous supplements and foods that are specific to the beautification of the skin. I have posted many suggestions over the years and have had many conversations and even taught a class on the subject. One of the basic elements to enjoy a beautiful complexion, hair, bones and teeth is Silica.  One bio-available form is from a food grade source called Diamtomaceous Earth. I know  what you're thinking, if you are or have been a gardener you know DE is used to kill snails so how could I be suggesting DE as a beauty supplement. Well I will tell you, the same component of DE which is sharp and shaped like diamonds (9) and DE (7) (the numbers correlate to the hardness) is what kills the snails and cleans your intestines of the harmful bacteria, parasites, hardened mucosa, removes toxins and heavy metals which in turn allow the body to absorb nutrients more effectively. DE is 85% Silica which is the "MAGIC" component to achieve all the health benefits stated above for Heathy Beautiful Skin, Hair and Bones. 

Overseas, DE is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. With silica, vitality and life, which are often lost as the years accumulate, can be naturally maintained or even restored to your skin. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems and injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, calluses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores. If you regularly follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look. (More than Alive,

I believe a healthy diet rich in organic foods, minerals, vitamins and fresh clean water are essential not only for Beautiful Skin but for the health of our bodies. You can not have healthy skin without having a healthy internal system, all systems are one and when one is out of balance everything is out of balance. I always teach my clients that you must be healthy inside to be healthy and radiate on the outside, the skin is the biggest organ! Take care of yourselves not only with foods and supplements but  Spiritually, mentally and emotionally!
