To relieve congestion, skin troubles and joint pain, we often use blood purifying herbs. We will use herbs such as burdock that promote the elimination of toxins, damaged cells and metabolic waste. In case of water retention, we can choose mild diuretic herbs like dandelion that promote kidney activity and the elimination or uric acid. If the skin is very dry, we can opt for nourishing herbs like red clover. We will of course complement with colourful foods that are rich in antioxidants to neutralise free radicals.
