The skin is the largest living organ on our body. The skin is a part of every nook and cranny within the living body. One striking feature of the skin is that apart from a few aspects, it is the only part of the body which is directly observable. No exploratory operations are necessary to see it. The skin, as the outermost structure, is a reflector of the internal state of the organism. The skin is the mirror of the internal cleanliness and integrity of the body. If the outer skin does not look well, then the inner body is not well. Thus the skin is a most valuable index of internal body condition, when we know how to read its appearance.  

The skin's texture may reflect nutritional deficiency or glandular malfunction. When there is a skin disease, there is also simultaneously an inflammation of internal organs. As long as there is the smallest necessity for the localization of toxins on the outer skin covering, the skin condition will continue. As long as there is morbidity, the organism will maintain the continuous eruption as an accessory eliminative function. At the NAC we offer many treatments for various skin disorders. We have specialized detoxification wraps that treat the following: 

  ECZEMA-(inflammation of the skin that causes itching and, sometimes, crusting, scaling, or blisters) 

  • PSORISIS-(a chronic skin disease characterized by dry red patches covered with scales; occurs especially on the scalp and ears and genitalia and the skin over bony prominences)
  • ACNE-(an inflammatory disease involving the sebaceous glands of the skin; characterized by papules or pustules or comedones)
  • ROSACEA-(a skin disease of adults (more often women) in which blood vessels of the face enlarge resulting in a flushed appearance)
