The skin, collectively, comprises the largest organ of the body. Complete organs my be removed from the body, not only the arms and legs, but some of the internal organs, and life will continue as before, but if the function of the skin is suspended for only a few minutes, death is the result.

It weighs 7-12 pounds. It covers an area of 17.5-20 square feet. The skin is a living organ of complex structure and function and extraordinary activity. It is as much a part of the body as the liver or heart, and is as much alive and even more sensitive than these vital organs.

The skin is our umbrella. It forms a tough, flexible, gasproof and waterproof surface. It is composed of a tough, yet supple membrane that covers the entire body. The use of drugs, salves, shots, chemical applications and treatments, mechanical decorations, cosmetic abuses, sprays and X-rays are extremely harmful and complicate all skin disorders. They must never be used In humans, the skin covers the whole external and internal (mucous membrane) surface of the body. It serves to surround and hold its contents together. It continues over the lips and up to the nostrils proceeding into the innermost parts of the body.

The same skin blends with the mucous membrane. It lines the exits and entrances to the body, so that these orifices are merely inversions of the skin. The external skin thus gradually fades into the internal but both represent a continuum, a melding together of sudden changes both in composition and functions.

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 cutaneous eruption as an accessory eliminative function.

The inherent intelligence, the God within, takes advantage of an individual's capacity to throw off materials by exudation through the skin. The God within is wise in doing so, for it spares impaired excretory organs until their regeneration is accomplished. When the skin is ugly, pimply, coarse, puffy and gross looking, it is conveying a message of internal disarray. A flush may indicate the presence of fever. A rash or other eruptions may herald many common infections. Coarsening and wrinkling furnish clues to aging.

The skin has very important cosmetic functions for both male and female. Color changes, blemishes, pimples, blackheads, blisters, boils, roughness, thickness, dryness, excessive oil, over-tenderness, hardness and loss of elasticity, all indicate internal mind and body derangement and cause mental embarrassment to the individual. It reflects general "disease" and often gives the doctor a more accurate estimate of a female patient's age than her own statement. The color of the skin indicates various conditions: yellow in jaundice: bronzed in certain glandular deficiencies; dry and hard in others and warm and moist in still others. Poisoning with silver (argyrosis) may be revealed by color of the skin. Cyanosis (blueness) reflects impaired circulatory or respiratory functions. In Vitamin A deficiencies, the skin of the back surface of the arms and front surface of the legs may lose its hair and become rough like sand paper. In certain other vitamin deficiencies, the skin around the corners of the mouth may become cracked and scaly (cheilosis). Many so-called "infectious diseases", which are in reality, efforts of the body to eject poisons and cleanse itself, produce identifying rashes on the skin (for example, scarlet fever, measles, chickenpox, smallpox, etc.)

Like diseases of every sort, those of the skin are traceable to toxic states of the body. An unhealthy condition is not a local condition detached from the rest of the organism and unaffected by variations in the entire body. If the skin lacks health, it means that the entire organism needs attention. The avenues of excretion are the kidneys, lungs, bowels, and skin. If the amount of toxins and poisons to be voided are unusually large, then the skin is called upon by the infinite wisdom of the body, the God within, to tremendously accelerate a specific excretory duty. It responds by eruption, inflammation and rash formation. Irrespective of the name applied to a given area of eruption or the form or color it may assume, all skin inflammations are the same-the cause is identical and care is, likewise, the same. Pimples, skin blotches, acne and blackheads are all external signs of internal foulness.

Being visible, skin diseases are a valuable indication of health of the whole body. Their cause, as with all other diseases, is traceable to a toxic state of the body. The disease itself, is evidence of the body throwing of toxic debris by passing it through the skin. One-third of the body's impurities are excreted through the skin. That is more than 1 pound of waste each day. When it is not functioning properly, wastes remain in the body or end up lodged in the skin tissues. Why, in some people, should it be passed through the skin? The answer is, that toxic debris finds an outlet through many different manifestations of the degenerative diseases, the particular form being determined by the specific resistance of the various organs. The form of the disease is determined largely by the inheritance, but the fact of disease is determined by the individual. It is therefore, the weakest link in the hereditary chain that determines the organ, tissue or function to give way first. Skin problems, such as rashes, itching, bumps, warts or lesions of whatever kind, are the result of errors in living, thinking and spirituality. These bad habits of errors in living, thinking and spirituality, have caused the interior organs and parts to be reduced in their efficiency of performance. They are reduced to the extent that they have not fully performed their duties anywhere within the body economy, including the part which we examine most closely, our skin.

When an unhealthy, scabby-looking animal is killed and then dissected, the organs of the corpse will be seen to be diseased also. A scaly, pimply or ulcerated skin, likewise, tells us that the entire body is, more likely than not, to be in the same state, in a rather advanced state of malnutrition and deterioration. The rashes and pimples so casually treated on the outside also deserve attention to the whole body. Quite often the very same ulcers and measly appearance visible on the outer skin, have been observed in autopsies of humans who have died from "sudden" illness of unknown origin. In emergency situations, the body will forcefully eject its excess gases, acid sweat, toxic oils and greases out through the pores of the skin and also through temporary exit points devised for that purpose. These are called boils, pimples, rashes, ulcers, and so on. Itching is a typically annoying symptom characteristic of the exodus.

When the skin condition becomes chronic and/or acute, the visible symptoms will, more often than not, be accompanied by fever, as for example, in measles and other so-called "childhood diseases." When the body vitality is high, the skin eruptions can be very violent, but if it is at a lower level (as is generally true in the elderly), then the disorders will be either milder or will have become chronic. When the exodus of toxic material becomes so great that the glands and follicles of the skin themselves become obstructed or injured in any way, then we usually witness the development of abnormal growth, such as warts, tumors, moles, and the like, some of these being of abnormal size.

When the exodus is mild and the symptoms likewise mild, we generally find that there is no fever present. The skin is actually an expansion of the nervous system. It has the ability to transmit two kinds of sensory impulses, that of touch and that of temperature. The skin serves two primary functions: protection and temperature regulation. As for "skin foods", blood is the only skin food. It is not designed to accept nutriment from the outside. Topical applications have no salubrious effect on the health of the skin but rather simply disguise and/or palliate symptoms. Only certain, never-meant-to-be encountered toxic substances such as carbon tetrachloride can penetrate through the skin. These chemicals are, of course, destructive to the organism and must be avoided.

It is the fault of the individual, if the complexion is bad, and it is up to the individual to correct these faults. A dry skin or an oily skin, atrophy of the skin, blotchy complexion and pimples are always caused by avoidable errors in diet. A truly beautiful face becomes unattractive when it is either too pale or too ruddy, too oily or scaly from being too dry, if it is rough or blotchy or has hair growing in the wrong places.

Sunbathing every possible part of one's body and face, as often as possible, will help heal Acne and every skin disease, completely and permanently, better and faster, than any procedure that civilization can invent! I have helped heal Acne and many "hopeless" skin conditions by supervising the Acne and skin problem sufferer to get adequate sleep, water fasting, feeling meditation, airbathing, sunbathing, raw, unprocessed and palatable foods and correct mentality and spirituality.
