At Merry Clinic, our healing philosophy is such that we seek to bring harmony and balance to the body, healing from within. Your skin, the largest organ of your body, is a mirror reflecting the state of your internal health. When something is out of balance, any number of unpleasant symptoms may show on your skin, such as itchy red rashes, unevenness of color, either dark or light patches, or flaking, dry skin.
Leading a balanced lifestyle, including eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest, and stress management, are vitally important to all aspects of health, including the skin. However, there are times when a healthy lifestyle may not be enough. In modern society, we are constantly barraged by environmental toxins, chemical additives in our food, too much sugar in the diet, too much stress due to a fast-paced lifestyle, and many other health challenges. These things are often unavoidable. Herbal medicine, a natural approach to health, can help to bring the body back to a state of balance.
Dr. Merry Li has discovered that the best approach for continued herbal skin health is by using a combination of Merry Clinic’s Skin Detox and Anti-Aging formulas. When used in combination, they clear accumulated toxins from the skin, and nourish the skin to restore your skin’s radiant glow.
Skin Detox formula improves the function of the Liver and Lungs, two of the most important organs of the body for detoxification. One function of the Liver is to filter toxins and wastes from the blood, while preserving the useful nutrients. The Lungs help the body to detoxify by exhaling carbon dioxide and other toxins that have been inhaled. In Chinese medicine, the Lungs and the Skin are also connected into one integrated system, so the detoxification function of the lungs is also very important for the skin.
Skin Detox formula contains borage and flaxseed oils, which are high in omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids, respectively, which are important for cell regeneration and repair. They also nourish and soothe the skin, and decrease inflammation. Milk thistle, burdock root, and dandelion leaf are herbs that have detoxifying functions. Echinacea is a powerful herb to balance the immune system and help ward off infection. Grape seed extract strengthens and nourishes the skin and is also a potent antioxidant to prevent cellular damage. Selenium, zinc, biotin, and PABA are included in the formula to nourish the skin.
The Anti-Aging formula contains nutrients with many health benefits, including:
- Strengthens heart function; lowering the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and other aging-related diseases.
- Softens skin tissues; thereby, reducing wrinkles and impurities.
- Improves the immune system by restoring energy to the entire body.
- Balances hormones naturally. For women, it improves irregular menstruation and reduces menopause syndromes.
Dr. Li has found, through her many years of clinical experience, that when you take both of these formulas together, you are sure to see improved condition of your skin within 1 month: increased elasticity, softness, moisture, and thickness, with a clear complexion and a healthy glow.
