The Benefit of using Kelp as a natural cure

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: the condition of the skin is often a direct reflection of what is happening inside your body. If your insides are working well, are nourished, and are in good health, your skin is clear. We often look to the liver when skin disorders are present, but we should also examine the gastrointestinal and central ner-vous systems to ensure they are in balance as well. Mineral- rich herbs such as nettle, alfalfa, horsetail, comfrey, and kelp are powerhouses for the body and enliven the skin to look its best.
