Dry Brush For Stimulating the Lymphatic System & Reducing Cellulite and Turmeric and Aloe Supplement.

Dry Brush For Stimulating the Lymphatic System & Reducing Cellulite and Turmeric and Aloe Supplement. 

I've been looking for a good dry brush to help with cellulite and for stimulating my lymphatic system after a visit to a holistic doctor suggested it. She also suggested I take a quality aloe to help heal my gut, along with really good probiotics and l-glutamine 5000 at night with a little juice and water. I was on antibiotics for years due to cystic acne which still flairs up but not as badly. I learned antibiotics really do a number on your intestines and I have been having trouble with bloating and cravings and such so I am working on getting my gut healthy. I am not following the plan very well as of yet since she recommended limiting sugar, gluten, dairy, alcohol. Why can't they say limit broccoli. Ha! So, I recently ordered these two items to give them a try and I found some really good information when I was researching and I want to pass the info along in hopes that it helps someone else who is looking for an answer.


The dry brush can be ordered here. And the Soothe aloe and turmeric can be ordered here. Both are on the same site, but the direct link will take you to each product. Of coarse both of these items are much higher quality that what you will find at a local health store. I love that the company offers a 30 day money back guarantee because they want you to be happy and the products work.

Apparently turmeric has MANY benefits and one of them is helping with depression. I am not a medical professional, but I have tried many different things and am a firm believer in the power of plants and herbal remedies. I have pretty much tried every medication out there for my depression and the only thing that has helped me is exercise and some nutritional supplements I take daily. I still have rough times and my anxiety is not completely gone, but the things I am using are helping and I try to pass that info along. I found this article on how turmeric can aid with depression and it said,

"Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Most studies used turmeric extracts that are standardized to include large amounts of curcumin.


Curcumin has shown some promise in treating depression.
In a controlled trial, 60 patients were randomized into three groups (45).
One group took prozac, another group took a gram of curcumin and the third group took both prozac and curcumin.
After 6 weeks, curcumin had led to improvements that were similar to prozac. The group that took both prozac and curcumin fared best.
According to this (small) study, curcumin is as effective as an antidepressant.
Depression is also linked to reduced levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and a shrinking hippocampus, a brain area with a role in learning and memory.
Curcumin boosts BNDF levels, potentially reversing some of these changes (46).
There is also some evidence that curcumin can boost the brain neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine 
Bottom Line: A study in 60 depressed patients showed that curcumin was as effective as prozac in alleviating the symptoms of depression"

Dry brushing is very beneficial for helping to drain toxins from your lymph nodes (found all over your body). It basically helps stimulate your cells and they begin releasing toxins -- somewhat like a detox. Try doing this several times a week. Michelle Kelthy, A spa director in Naples, recommends dry brushing for 3-5 minutes and this also helps with water retention and cellulite. You should dry brush upwards toward your heart and start at your feet and work your way up. It's better to do in the morning rather than the evening because it can be energizing. The recommend using a little oil on the brush if you already showered, or do it before showering, then apply lotion or oil after your shower.
