The Mishio Kushi Theory contends that a weakness or toxicity
in a certain organ or gland can cause acne
on certain areas of the body.
All natural practitioners know that topical treatments
are either short term remedies or more often contribute to the acne problem.
This may explain why some people who, while working with
acne, get results from chickweed
while others get similar results with BP-X or when they balance the hormones.
Adding validity to this theory is the fact that, a lot
of women break out with pimples on their chins just before menstruation; which
would indicate a dysfunction in their female reproductive organs.
Acne is often thought of as a normal part of adolescence.
This is not true, acne is merely a symptom that is accentuate by the rapid growth
and change within an adolescent's body.
Toxins often cleanse through the skin, when the other
eliminating systems are sluggish; hormonal imbalances over stimulate
the oil glands and impurities in the blood will often affect the skin. All
of these can clog pores. Acne is the body's reaction to those clogged
The Mishio Kushi theory, though not a science, can be
helpful when trying to pinpoint a reason why one has acne . Thereby, enabling
one to treat the cause instead of the symptom.
The forehead- Intestine
- toxic - Cascara Sagrada and Psyllium.
Above eyebrows - Liver
- toxic - Liver Cleanse (formally LIV-A), flush, Chinese Blood Build (BP-C)
We don't seem to listen to what our bodies are telling
us anymore. I have heard numerous times from people that they go to a
doctor with a symptom, go through a lot of test to have the doctor tell them
there is nothing wrong. If you feel that there is please don't listen
to them. More accurately it's not that there is nothing wrong but rather
that they cannot find out what is wrong.
Listen to your body. It is trying to tell you something.
I had a close friend who several years ago went the doctors complaining
that she felt tired and had numbing of the extremities. After several
thousand dollars worth of test at a leading diagnostic clinic in Atlanta Georgia's
hospital was told that there was nothing physically wrong with her and told
her husband to take her to a psychiatrist. Mary Jane died two years after
the testing of Multiple Sclerosis.
Years ago when you would go to a doctor, he would check
you out by looking at the tongue, in the eyes, and generally probing and looking
to see what the body was saying about your health. Now they give you a
piece of paper for blood test and scans, which tell you how you look compared
to others who have taken that test. CAUTION!!! Average does not mean Healthy
The average American's health is going down hill. The
charts that doctors use to graph your health are reflecting that decline. For
instance, if someone who in 1920 was diagnosed as having a hypo (underactive)
thyroid, the same numbers today would be considered normal, because they have
changed the number of the norm.
There are many more outward and inward reflections of
your body's health. The following is just to give you a sample of what
your body does to get your attention. This article is meant to help encourage
you when there is a contradiction (If the doctor says there is nothing wrong.
If your doctor has found something and there is no physical sign for it,
listen to the doctor.)
Below is a picture that indicates
what the body is saying.
Oily T-zone - Caused by dietary oils including milk
products. If the body is overtaxed with fats it try's to eliminate the
fat through the largest eliminating organ of the body: the skin. It
may also indicate the possibility of cholesterol build up in arteries. Possible
changes include: Cut out milk products use non saturated fats to cook
in such as olive oil. Herbally you might want to look into chickweed.
Enlarged Pores - Long term consumption of white sugar
products. If it's overloading the skin, chances are the pancreas
could also be overloaded. Possible changes-cut out white refined sugar.
Herbally you may want to take chromium which symptom of deficiency is
Pallid complexion (pale and ashen) - Mineral
and nutrient deficient, especially iron and chlorophyll. Mineral
deficiency symptoms also described as "not feeling sick, just not feeling
well". Anywhere from 21 to 78 minerals are needed. Possible changes
- Eat more naturally and organically. Herbally: Colloidal minerals,
mineral maintenance, Mineral Chi.
Deep creases in ear lobe - signs of heart problems.
Possible changes - check cholesterol and nourish heart. Herbally:
Gingko and Hawthorn, Mega-chel,
Vitamin E and minerals.
Crows feet - Excessive intake of tannic acid Coffee,
Tea and Soda) Tannic acid (increases uric acid) also robs the joints
of natural sodium contributing to arthritis and gout. It also destroys
the lining of the stomach. Possible changes - Cut out coffee, tea and
soda (I believe you will never get rid of arthritis if you continue drinking
them) Herbally: Eat more celery and goat's whey. I like JNT-A
concentrate and Una de Gato.
White exposed below iris - eating dead foods (it is
said only live foods can truly nourish the body.) Possible changes -
Eat as much raw vegetables and fruits as possible (including the seeds!).
Cooking kills many of the properties in these foods. As a rule
of thumb, the longer the food will last on the shelf, the less it has to offer
nutritionally. Herbally: Herbs are food, drying takes out less value
than cooking (30% opposed to 65%).
Bags beneath eyes - lack of rest, kidney
problems or kidneys needing flushed out. Again the uric acid could encourage
arthritis and gout. Possible changes - Drink plenty of "good" water.
Cut out all coffee, tea, soda and artificially colored drinks. Herbally:
Urinary Maintainence (formally URY), Combination K, Chinese Kidney Activator
(formally K-C) and Hydrangea.
Frown and smile lines - Improper assimilation of fatty
acids. Possible changes - cut down on fat. We as a nation
eat entirely too much fat. Herbally: PDA and chickweed. Proper
Swollen upper eye lids - proper ratios of potassium
and sodium which can also cause gallstones, kidney stones and high blood pressure.
Possible changes - Water pills drain potassium out of the body. CAUTION:Too
much of the isolated mineral potassium supplement can adversely effect the
heart. Do not take without guidance from a competent health practitioner.
Try first to get the potassium from your foods such as: Bananas, oranges
and baked potatoes (with skins).
Lines on neck - Sometimes indicates improper assimilation
of fatty acids, but usually mean thyroid problems. Possible changes
- add kelp to food instead of salt. Herbally: Thyroid Activator (formally
KC-X), Target TS II, TS II with hops or if just slight Kelp.
Dark Circles under the eyes - a lack of rest but if
this is not the cause then look to the liver. The liver may be toxic
and needs flushed. Or it may be weak (caster oil packs or vitamin A).
Dark circles can also indicate allergies, usually stemming from the
liver. The most common allergies are wheat and dairy.
Most allergies are caused by the not enough toxicity being expelled
from the body. First look at liver, then bowel, then kidney, then respiratory,
then skin. Possible changes - Eat a high fiber diet. Avoid all
unnecessary chemicals. Herbally: Cascara Sagrada, LIV-A (my favorite)
for liver and bowel. Urinary Maintainence and K for Kidney. Sinus
Support (formally SN-X) or ALJ for respiratory. For skin, dry brushing
or loofah and ginger bath.
Pale lips - anemia (not ingesting, digesting or absorbing
iron). Iron filled foods are raisins, cream of wheat and dandelion.
Iron should always be taken with Vitamin C. Possible changes - avoid
milk it binds iron. B12 is also needed for iron utilization. Herbally:
IX and Vitamin C.
Mousy hair - Poor over all health. Lacking minerals
especially silicon. Possible changes - Eat better meals, more raw veggies
and fresh fruits. (sometimes accompanies eating disorders). Herbally:
HSN-W and Colloidal minerals.
Thin Hair - Thyroid or lack of silica
Psoriasis - usually liver involvement. Ask your
local herbalist for a liver/gallbladder flush. Beta-carotene (if liver
is not weak just toxic). Herbs historically used for liver are Chinese
Liver Balance (formally LIV-C), Liver Cleanse Formula (formally LIV-A) and
- Usually toxic bowels, hormone imbalance, too fatty diet, and impurities
in the blood. For bowels see #11. Hormones imbalances - check
out liver, and look towards gonadals such as black cohosh for estrogen, wild
yam for progesterone and saw palmetto or sarsasparilla for testosterone. For
cleansing liver BP-X or LIV-A.
Mole - Simptom of liver. Often a sign on a genetic weakness
on the liver. For accompanying symptoms of liver.
Skin Tag - Liver weakness.
Hairy Eye brows - Ancestors were heavy meat eaters.
Enlarged Upper lip - Weakness in stomach.
Enlarged Lower lip - Weakness in Intestine.
There are other signs involving the fingernails
which may indicate deficiencies. If you have a symptom, realize your body
is telling you something. If you're not sure what it is saying,
read books on natural healing or contact an herbalist or iridologist
and have them help translate it for you.
