Hi all,
 
This is the dry skin brush that I use as many people ask me so I figured I would post it here (I am not affiliated in any way with this site):
 
 
And here's a link about dry skin brushing:
 
Updated link to how to dry skin brush since the old link is not working for me (hope this link below doesn't change!):

Dry Brushing Technique 

Dry brushing cleans the lymphatic system. Lymph is considered part of our immune system and is made of white blood cells called lymphocytes and the interstitial fluid that bathe our cells, bringing our cells nutrients and removing their waste. All detoxification occurs first and foremost through the lymph. Our bodies contain far more lymph than blood, so you can see how important this might be. Paavo Airola maintains that dry brushing is an essential part of any intestinal cleansing and healing program.

 
Hope this helps!
Denise

That's the same brush my wife and I purchased at a store in Wichita, KS called Green Acres. It's a neat little health food store with an small organic cafe in the back. We went there to eat everyday while I was being treated at the Hansa Center. Neat place and great food!

I noticed our local health food stores carries this same brush so you shouldn't have any problem finding it in a health food store. Just make sure the bristles are made of natural materials.

Deejavu, great link to dry skin brushing that explains how to do it and why it's important. Thanks!

Thank you so much for posting this!! My husband bought the same brush for me at Whole Foods Market here in the metro Atlanta area! But I was just "guessing" as to how to use it. The process is a lot more involved than what I was doing! This will really help! Thanks again :)

If you don't have a skin brush, you can use a dry cotton washcloth - air-dry it after washing and it'll have a nice rough surface to rub off the dead skin with....

Deejavu - What great timing! Just last night I was thinking that I needed to ask "my forum" if anyone knew how to do dry skin brushing correctly and the importance of a brush. Thank you... Looks like you hit on a winner with this one.

Razzle - I have a bath sponge that has a rough side to it and that's what I've been using sort of willy nilly. Never thought of a dried out wash cloth.

When my memory is all wonky, so that I get into the shower without dry brushing, I grab my loofa & get to work with that. It's not as good as dry brushing, but it is better than not doing anything!

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, which makes long paragraphs very hard to read.

Hi to all the skin brushing fans. I have a Q: How do you know it is working? I've started it recently because, well, I'm trying everything and anything at this point. But I'm a bit of an empirical guy, and I don't notice any difference when I do it or not. Is there an 'aha!' moment that will come?

Cheers!

From my experience with detoxing (which includes dry skin brushing) I can't say there was an "a ha!" moment. It's more of a cumulative effect. I just noticed that I wasn't feeling so bad. My back didn't hurt so bad, my neck didn't hurt so bad, but mainly my brain was clearer. I could actually think clearly again. There is a whole bunch of things with tick-borne infections that just aren't black and white.

I hope this helps!

Deejavu, I wonder if you'd want to edit your post and take off the link in your first post on this thread and replace it with the new one? Would make it easy for new people especially.

Should I dry brush after my workout, before my shower? I exercise early in the morning and from what I've read, that seems to be the best time to dry brush. Are there any adverse effects to dry brushing sweaty skin?

Hi Melinda68 - welcome to our community!

I don't see why you couldn't dry brush sweaty skin before the shower.

I'm sure others will chime in.


Have you taken a look at the "New to Lyme?...Start Here!" thread at the top of the page? It's full of information - symptom lists, probiotic information, detox suggestions...and much more.

Hope you keep coming back for support, to read, and feel free to ask any questions you have.

Hi Melinda68!!
Welcome to our community!!

I too would encourage you to take a look at the "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread. It's really packed with information!!

The only thing I've noticed about bushing wet skin is that it will "rough up" the skin more, which can make your skin more sensitive. What about dry brushing before you exercise, then exercise and then shower???

Thank you for sharing. How often do you do the brushing a day? Just once before a shower?
