Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing (detox)
Reasons for Dry Brushing
Regular dry brushing stimulates blood flow, eliminating toxins and removing
dead cells, it helps combat cellulite and encourages the regeneration of healthy
Skin and the Lymphatic System
The largest organ of the body is the skin. “The skin is so important in the process
of eliminating toxins, it is often called the third kidney,” according to an article
on As the skin is brushed, the blood flow to that area is
increased, which in turn stimulates the area and helps remove toxins. It also aids
in sloughing off dead skin cells that give people a dull, lifeless appearance. The lymphatic system runs throughout the entire body. When you stimulate the skin
by brushing it, it promotes a stronger immune system.
Type of Brush
For the skin, a natural bristle brush with a long handle is the ideal tool.
How to Dry Brush
Start with dry skin before you begin brushing-preferably before a bath or
shower. Starting with the feet, brush toward the heart. Work your way up the
legs, buttocks and lower back, continuing to use upward strokes. Next, work on
the hands and arms, still brushing toward the heart. Brush over the shoulders,
over your chest (avoiding sensitive tissue around the nipples) and over the
abdomen. Holding onto the long handle, brush in circles over the back. You don’t
want to dry brush the face because the skin is tender and might become irritated.
The entire process should only take five to 10 minutes.
Drink Water After Brushing
Once you’ve dry brushed the entire body, drink at least eight ounces of filtered
water. This helps carry away the toxins you’ve just released by brushing.

These might be the best-tasting energy bites! I modified a recipe to increase
the protein content and decrease the sugar content!


1 scoop Fit Shake Powder
8 oz. (about 1 packed cup) chopped dates
1/4 cup raw honey
1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)
1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (dry, not cooked)
1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
1 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips (optional)

Combine the Fit Shake, dates, honey, chia seeds, flax seeds and salt in a food processor, and pulse until smooth and combined. You should be able to stir the mixture – if it is too thick, add in another tablespoon or two of honey.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the oats, pistachios, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Once the mixture is cool (and easier to work with), use a spoon or cookie scoop to shape it into your desired size of energy balls. Alternately, you can line a small baking pan with parchment paper, and press the mixture evenly into the pan, let it cool, and then cut into bars.

Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (Storing them in the refrigerator especially helps the energy bites hold their shape.)

Quick 9 minute full body workout

Hi Dr. Delrae,

I’m having a hard time sticking to a healthy diet on the
weekends. Do you have any tips?

Dr. DelRae:

Hi Karen!

I know how you feel! Weekends are busy. Traveling,
family, kids activities and social gatherings are all
great distractions when you’re detoxing and trying to
eat a better diet. I highly recommend preparing some of
my homemade protein bars or energy balls to take with
you while you are on-the-go. They not only taste great,
but always satisfy my hunger so I’m not reaching for
convenient, processed food.

Dr. DelRae’s Raspberry Ketone +

Eliminate cravings and turn your body in to a fat-burning machine with powerful ingredients, Hoodia, Raspberry Ketones and Irvingia Gabonesis. 

Raspberry Ketone is a natural compound that is responsible for the heavenly aroma of red raspberries. It is most known for its incredible fat burning traits. It has been recognized by the FDA since 1965 and has no known side effects. Recently, Dr. Oz said, without specifying a brand, raspberry ketones is the “#1 miracle in a bottle, to burn your fat”.

How it works?

Raspberry Ketone is a natural phenolic compound that is responsible for the heavenly aroma of red raspberries. According to certain studies, it’s also a potent fat burner.

It was discovered that raspberry ketone increased both the expression and secretion of adiponectin. This is important because adiponectin is a protein hormone which modulates a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid metabolism. Past research into adiponectin has shown that your levels of adiponectin are inversely correlated with your body fat percentage: Higher adiponectin = lower levels of body fat!

And if weight loss isn’t enough, higher levels of adiponection have been shown to control the metabolic derangements that may result in type 2 diabetes, obesity, atherosclerosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome. As a result of all of this, the researchers concluded that Raspberry Ketone “holds great promise as a fat-burning, health-improving herbal supplement.”
