Rosacea Is Linked to the Liver And Type 2 Diabetes And Can Be Reversed Naturally
Studies have shown that the liver is responsible for many conditions such as type 2 diabetes and are also the cause of skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and more. The good news is these conditions can be reversed with these natural treatments.
Whether you know it or not, you wear your diet on your face. We all do. What you eat is generally reflected on your skin. It’s reflected in how dry your skin is, how red your skin is and how oily your skin is. You can buy creams, oils and other topical treatments, but the skin is always an inside job, dictated your liver.
Causes of rosacea have been a mystery until recently. Rosacea is caused by the liver. Therefore, it’s no wonder that science has linked rosacea with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, which are also liver conditions. Rosacea is a type of eczema (there are many varieties) that are caused by a liver overloaded with toxins. Symptoms of rosacea may include:
- Facial redness. Persistent redness on the nose, cheeks and chin. The small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks can swell when you eat certain foods like chocolate, wine, tomato sauce, and dairy products.
- Swollen red bumps. Many people who have rosacea also develop pimples on their face that can look like acne. These bumps sometimes contain pus. Your skin may also feel hot and tender.
- Eye problems. About half of the people who have rosacea also experience eye dryness, irritation and swollen, reddened eyelids. Rarely, rosacea's eye symptoms precede the skin symptoms.
- Enlarged nose. In rare cases, rosacea will thicken the skin, specifically on the nose. This causes the nose to appear enlarged, red and swollen. Nose enlargement often occurs more often in men than in women.
Skin Conditions And Type 2 Diabetes
Skin conditions don’t always mean you’re going to get type 2 diabetes and vice versa. However, skin conditions such as the variety of eczema that is the cause of rosacea, and psoriasis, as well as cystic acne, are always affiliated with a burdened liver. Both psoriasis and the eczema that is the cause of rosacea, are simply toxins trying to escape the body. The reason the toxins can’t escape the body has to do with a situation in the liver that’s holding them back from being eliminated.
Incidentally, psoriasis is another skin condition that has many varieties. Psoriasis is characterized by patches of red, inflamed skin, rashes, dryness, fissures, flakiness, peeling, small bumps, thickness, or redness, and is also caused by toxins in the liver. The cause of rosacea and psoriasis are the same. What is more, psoriasis, is also linked to obesity and thus, type 2 diabetes.
A study of Danish twins linked psoriasis with type 2 diabetes, mass body index, and obesity and suggested that a genetic link exists. According to the book Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic Illness And How To Finally Heal, what’s inherited when there are afflictions of the skin are heavy metals that Williams says, have accumulated from generations that go as far back into your ancestry. This is where dermatoxins come into play.
According to Williams, the liver of someone with rosacea and psoriasis will be overloaded from toxins from a pathogen that’s in the liver, along with extremely high levels of copper and pesticides that are inherited as far back as your ancestry. The dermatoxin surfaces to the skin and injures it. Dermatoxins act as a poison and are highly inflammatory. When dermatoxins enter the deep part of the derma they crack and bleed, giving your face a red glow. This is what’s commonly known as rosacea.
Interestingly, these dermatoxins are created by a pathogen that lives in the liver –from a viral condition that houses in the liver, consuming and eliminating copper. When the unwelcomed pathogen releases its viral waste, eczema and psoriasis are created.
"What’s more, copper is also in the liver due to pesticides and herbicide exposures that have been inherited from generation to generation, such as DDT, and copper pipes used during the industrial boom of the 1930’s", says Williams.
The conventional produce you eat today does add to this load over time, but that’s not he root cause of the copper overload that’s responsible for rosacea and psoriasis today. Inherited heavy metals are the cause.
Copper and Other Heavy Metals Are Hard To Get Rid Of, But It’s Not Impossible
The reason these copper consuming pathogens are hard to get rid of is because they never leave the liver, and they keep getting fed. Generally, the liver has a hard time releasing copper because copper helps to stop pesticides from degrading, and so, they remain. Thus, when there’s a pathogen consuming copper in the liver and we’re adding to it by taking in more copper (drinking from copper pipes, using copper cookware, etc.) it doesn’t help.
Some ways to remove heavy metals from the body are to:
- Eat organic foods whenever you can.
- Make sure no insecticides are being sprayed in or around the house.
- Go on a plant-based diet - this a must with skin conditions, removing copper from the liver and healing the liver.
- Lower animal products to once a day, or not at all.
- In order for the liver to release copper you have to be on a low fat diet, even if you’re on a plant-based diet. http://www.emaxhealth.com/13638/lowering-fat-absolutely-way-out-diabetics Low fat is the only way out when it comes to liver issues. That means keep your intake of avocado, nuts, nut butters and coconut low.
Healing rosacea (and psoriasis) takes time and flare-ups can be cyclical before the condition finally disappears. Foods to incorporate into your diet every day to help get rid of rosacea are cilantro, wild blueberries, and Atlantic Dulse which bind on to copper. Eating more papaya, pears, watermelon with seeds, and all lettuces greatly helps. It’s best to avoid grains, meat, and pork especially and instead eat more raw spinach, kale, arugula, avocado, sweet potatoes, winter squash, hemp seeds and burdock root -- as these are also very helpful in reversing liver issues.
While it is not clear whether skin conditions like rosacea have a causal relationship to type 2-diabetes, however, it is certainly part of the package.
