Using a Dry Brush
When you do Skin Brushing, you help your Lymph System to clean itself of the toxins that collect in the Lymph Glands.
You use a simple technique to improve the surface circulation on the skin and keep the pores of the skin open, encouraging your body's discharge of metabolic wastes, and resulting in an improved ability to combat bacteria, plus helping your skin to look and feel healthier and more resilient. Skin brushing is a perfect treatment for self-‐help enthusiasts.

How to dry Brush
Hydrate to Decongest Your Lymph
- Sip warm water every 10-15 minutes for 2 weeks.
- One of the most common causes of lymph congestion is dehydration. Water, and only water, can adequately rehydrate the body.
- In some cases, your DBM Physician / Practitioner might require you to make use of our Hydration Elixir Recipe.
- The best lymph-moving rehydration technique is to sip hot water every 10-15 minutes throughout the day. Try it for one day. If by the end of that day you are experiencing a dry mouth and are now thirsty for this once tasteless sip of hot water, this is a good indication you are dehydrated and that your lymph is congested.
- If this happens, try this rehydration therapy: sip hot water every 10-15 minutes for 2 weeks straight. Keep a thermos of hot water nearby to make it easy to follow this protocol.
- In addition to sipping hot water as part of the lymph-moving rehydration technique, try to drink 1/2 your ideal body weight in ounces per day for two weeks as well. For example, if you weigh 140 lbs, drink 70 ounces of water (almost 9 glasses) per day.
- Some lemon and honey may be added for taste.
