Dry Body Brushing and Fibromyalgia

The Benefits of Dry Body Brushing

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue is often associated with toxic overload and therefore, finding ways to reduce the toxins in our bodies is crucial to good health. Dry Body Brushing is a great addition to your daily routine.

We rely on the same medication because the doctor says that is what we should be taking. We accept what they say because, after all, they are the “expert”.

Yep, our comfort zone is certainly safe and comfortable but it is also a place where nothing grows. No hopes, no spark, no incentives and no change. Over time, left in our comfort zone we will basically stagnate!
