My entire adult life I have suffered from extreme skin problems. I was once covered head to toe (no joke) in psoriasis, a skin disorder resulting in red, scaly patches, all over my scalp, limbs, and torso. I also was plagued with acne as an adult. Being a girl with skin problems really affected my self-confidence. Having poor self-confidence and bad skin truly is a recipe for disaster. That disaster is called stress. When stress becomes involved with the condition it only makes matters worse. Stress shows up in many different forms.

Firstly, stress releases a hormone in the body called cortisol is produced in your adrenal gland. It is responsible for metabolizing fats, proteins, and and carbohydrates. Secondly, stress can also be put onto the body in the form of unhealthy foods: processed foods, pesticides, sugars, etc. Thirdly, stress can be caused by environmental factors: who you surround yourself with, pollution, topical products, and more. When these stresses take hold of your life, that's when the body begins to break down and that's when your health gets sacrificed in a big way.

Course correcting a stressed out body can be difficult to repair. It takes discipline, knowledge, and a great deal of desire. It's something you have to truly want to do. Over the past month, I've been working weekly with a group of women (myself included) on a 6 Week Body Detox plan. I cannot express how incredibly grateful I am to have such an inspiring group of ladies working hard to repair their health. Because at the end of the day, if you don't take care of your health, who will?

I'd like to inspire you to take hold of your health, heal your body naturally, and love the skin your in. In order to bring your body back to an optimal state. Here are 9 things that need to happen in order to heal you body naturally:
