Our bodies are connected with all sorts of different pathways that help our bodies function. Organs work together to make sure we stay healthy, happy, and that certain processes are working.
Becoming aware of how many of our blemishes can be linked to specific causes depending on where it appears, will make it easier to determine the cause and will also enable you to adjust your lifestyle and habits accordingly. Let's take a look at the root causes of pimples and inflammation.
Jaw Line and Neck
Consistently eating the wrong foods, being under artificial lights, eating hormone-injected meat and dairy along with not drinking enough water can disturb healthy hormone levels and balance. Get grounded (connect to the Earth with walks on the sand). Sun gaze during the last 4 minutes of each day barefoot on stone or sand. Eat less processed food and more of the correct saturated fats (especially organic ghee to provide more good cholesterol production that is the precursor of our most important hormones). Avoid hormone contaminated meat and dairy products as well as chicken. Avoid artificial lighting as much as possible.
Indoor and outdoor air pollution, bad circulation, and high blood pressure can all play havoc with this area of the face. Try exercising, removing toxins with green tea and chlorella, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, and keep blood pressure in check with cayenne, garlic, and reishi mushroom.
Hair line and Forehead
Cause: Bladder and/or Small Intestine
Poor food choices, stress, excessive alcohol consumption, and reduced sleep may cause breakouts on the forehead. One should focus on consuming raw food, chewing more thoroughly, taking probiotics, eating digestive enzymes with meals, drinking plenty of water, removing alcohol, and getting enough sleep. Yoga may also be useful to reduce stress.
Between the eyebrows
The liver is working too hard to remove toxins from what is being eaten, or the pollution one is exposed to. It may be possible that one is eating too much meat or dairy (foods high on the food chain), or food one is sensitive to (allergic to). Eat less or omit meat and dairy. Select healthy foods including lots of organic fruits and vegetables. Get plenty of fresh air, meditate, take fast walks, and practice yoga.
Cause: Lungs and Kidneys
Smoking, poor food choices, and high stress may affect this area of the face. When the kidneys are involved, this indicates a deeper level of aging and stress. Nourish the kidneys (and lungs) with proper hydration: sea salt and pure water. Also, cucumber and other members of the melon family are kidney friendly.
Mouth and Chin
Eating too much fat and sweet food can cause problems in this area. This is also true of caffeine and alcohol consumption. Try to maintain a balanced diet and eat plenty of fruits and demulcent fiber (chia, marshmallow, slippery elm, aloe vera) to improve stomach health.
