In this article, we'll take you through the real causes of skin blemishes, damaged hair, and brittle nails so you can heal your body from the inside out. Not only will you get better skin, shinier hair and stronger nails, but you'll also feel better overall health and well-being.


People often turn to lotions and toners to treat skin problems like wrinkles, blemishes, or under-eye circles, but these topical treatments won't offer the true healing that people are looking for. Although some anti-viral and anti-cancer ointments will help skin problems, and some creams slightly soften and moisturize the skin, these ointments can only partially help.

When it comes to dealing with skin problems, including sagging skin, liver spots, and other blemishes, we need to assess what's going on beneath the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) and treat the underlying issues.

The liver

Liver health plays a huge role in the health of your skin. The more toxic your liver is, the more likely you are to develop wrinkles and other skin problems commonly associated with aging. Many people's livers are burdened with toxins. Many of us enter the world already loaded with toxins from plastic products, petroleum products, DDT, toxic heavy metals, and other toxins passed down from parents. Anthony William explains this little-known truth and many others in his books The Healing Medium , The Best Foods , Liver Help and Thyroid Healing .

There is a lot going on in the liver. The vast amount of blood that floods the liver contains not only oxygen and nutrients, but also toxins that the liver must filter out. After the liver cleans and processes the blood, it sends it to different parts of the body. If the liver directs blood that contains unfavorable substances to the skin, liver spots, wrinkles, wrinkled skin and other problems can appear. Some people inherit an incredibly toxic liver and as a result are forced to deal with serious skin, hair and nail problems that sometimes start at an early age. Fortunately, there are ways to clear these toxins and heal your skin. For more information on the subject, as well as in-depth guidelines for liver treatment, check out the book Help for the Liver .


Adrenaline can cause liver problems and negatively affect the health of your skin. If you had to experience a number of acute stressful situations early in life, it's likely that adrenaline had a negative impact on multiple organs, including your liver. When emotionally taxing situations arise, such as the loss of a loved one or financial difficulties, corrosive adrenaline floods your body. This adrenaline makes it harder for your liver to work and can affect your skin. Supporting the adrenal glands through frequent snacking (Anthony William recommends snacking every hour and a half - two light snacks that contain fruit sugar, potassium and sodium, such as apples, dates and celery stalks or oranges, spinach and coconut water) . using nutritional supplements and healing foods is a key part of revitalizing your skin.

Support for your skin

You can help your adrenals, cleanse your liver, and support your skin with these practices:

  • Drink 0.5 liters of pure cucumber juice daily - this is a phenomenal practice for improving liver and skin health.
  • Avoid fried foods, eggs, dairy, gluten, pork, canola oil, corn, and soy, and keep your fat intake low. The liver can be burdened by too much fat, and if you want healthy skin, you need to support the liver. In Help for the Liver, you will learn what the ideal fat intake is, which foods to avoid and which to emphasize.

If you are a meat lover, reduce the amount of animal protein you consume and eat it no more than once a day. Cutting your animal protein consumption in half will reduce your total fat intake and leave room in your diet for plenty of liver-cleansing fruits, leafy greens and vegetables.

If you eat a plant-based diet, you can also reduce vegetable fats by 50%. For example, you can minimize oils and reduce nuts and seeds to just a few tablespoons per day. Or if you eat a lot of avocados, you can reduce your consumption to 1/2 to 1 avocado per day.

People who see improvements in their skin when they cut out sweets, packaged foods, fried foods, and unhealthy oils are likely to see even greater improvement when they reduce their intake of fats from animal or vegetable sources. "Liver Cleanse 3:6:9" from the book "Liver Help" would be a fantastic option for improving the condition of the skin and treating skin problems. You can repeat it or do it often if you want to get the best results.

It's important to increase your fruits and vegetables significantly, regardless of which fats you're cutting back on, to make sure you're still getting enough calories. If you feel run down or low on energy after you've reduced animal protein/fat or vegetable fat in your diet, it may be because you're not getting enough calories from fruits, green leafy vegetables, and other healthy foods.

  • Eat more foods rich in beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is crucial for healthy skin and is found in a number of fruits and vegetables. When you provide your body with carotenes, the liver can send carotene-rich blood through the subcutaneous fat to the skin. The liver can tag and slightly modify carotene so that it survives the journey to the dermis (the layer of skin below the outer layer of the epidermis). The liver is a master at manipulating chemical compounds and allows for a completely different form of methylation than currently known to science and research. When the liver knows that carotenes are available to send to the skin, it fuels delivery differently by making sure there is enough oxygen in the blood to deliver the carotenes to the dermis. This amazing process is still unknown to modern medicine. Foods high in beta-carotene include mangoes, papayas, mameya sapote, sweet potatoes, raspberries, cantaloupes, and green leafy vegetables such as spinach.
  • Eat foods that contain silica. It would be years before science and research discovered that there were two different types of silica. One type offers tremendous support for the bones, and the other is particularly beneficial for the skin. This second type of silica is found in vegetables, including asparagus, artichokes and cabbage stalks.
  • Horsetail and stinging nettle both contain varieties of silica, and when you consume either of these herbs, the liver secretes both types of silica and delivers them to the area they best support. A high-quality quartz supplement that supports bone health can provide a number of additional benefits.
  • Cleanse your liver of pesticides, heavy metals and other toxins. A great way to remove these toxins is by drinking a daily heavy metal detox smoothie , as it contains the five best foods for detoxing heavy metals from the body: wild blueberries , cilantro, spirulina , barley grass juice powder , and atlantic dulce .
  • Stay hydrated. Hydration is essential for healthy skin. People who are chronically dehydrated may actually have dehydrated skin. Drink lemon water, celery stalk juice, and other healing liquids daily, including fresh fruit and vegetable juices.


Like the health of your skin, the health of your hair is largely due to issues deep below the surface.

Adrenaline and emotional stress

Adrenaline triggered by emotional events and stressful situations can have a big impact on the health of your hair. When you experience a stressful situation or a serious trial, adrenaline floods your body, affecting your liver, skin and hair. Under the influence of stress, your hair can take on a straw texture and fall out. These symptoms can appear after the ordeal and continue for a period of time if you don't provide your body with the nutrients and support it needs.

A hair care product full of protein won't give your hair the recovery you're hoping for. One of the best things you can do is support your adrenal glands because their health helps determine the health of your hair. Learn more about adrenal fatigue and ways to nourish your adrenal glands in the book The Healing Medium .


Medical experts mistakenly believe that alopecia is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks the hair follicles that generate hair growth. The truth is that alopecia is an adrenal problem.

Medical research and science are unaware that adrenaline is made up of a complex group of hormones that have yet to be identified. If someone has alopecia, their adrenal glands are missing one of the undocumented hormones that make up some of the 56 different mixtures of adrenaline that Anthony William describes in his book The Healing Medium . Ashwagandha can help restore traces of the missing hormone.

Liver health

If your liver is overloaded with toxins, you are more likely to have hair problems, hair loss and scalp problems such as dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis. The book Help for the Liver offers extremely important information on these issues.

Medicinal nutritional supplements and teas

Skin, hair, and nail formulas may have a small amount of beneficial ingredients, such as horsetail or nettle leaf, but they are also usually full of substitutes and other ingredients that are not beneficial. If you want to support your hair or if you have alopecia, consider these nutritional supplements:

The condition of your nails can reveal more about your overall health than you realize. While pits or bumps on your nails can be annoying, they can be helpful signs of internal problems that need attention.

Zinc deficiency, adrenaline and liver problems

Do your nails have white spots, indentations, ridges, pockets, bubbles, or disappearing crescents? Long-term zinc deficiency is usually one of the causes of nail problems. The second part of the problem is usually related to the liver. When you experience an emotionally stressful situation, whether positive (falling in love) or negative (breakup), adrenaline often rushes through your body. Adrenaline can wreak havoc on the body if adequate adrenal support is not provided. Frequent adrenaline rushes can damage the liver and lead to thin, brittle and unhealthy nails. Fortunately, there are nutritional supplements and foods that can help reverse the underlying problems that lead to poor nail health.

Medicinal nutritional supplements

When it comes to nail repair, people often focus on protein deficiency. Instead, shift your focus to providing your body with vitamins and minerals that can restore your nails:

  • Zinc is an important supplement for nail repair. Pumpkin seeds contain some zinc and can be a great addition to your diet. However, dietary zinc supplementation (in the form of liquid zinc sulfate) is essential for almost everyone.
  • Selenium is another great support for nail health.
  • Non-citric ionic manganese, molybdenum, and silica can also help.

Contact a health care practitioner to start using these nutritional supplements and support your liver and adrenals through a diet full of fruits, green leafy vegetables and vegetables. This will lead to visible positive changes in your nails and overall health.

The truth about protein

Many medical professionals believe that increasing protein consumption is the answer to better skin, hair and nails, but this is not entirely true. High-quality protein (which can be easily obtained from spirulina , barley grass juice powder, and foods such as kale, spinach, lentils, black beans, and walnuts) is valuable. However, overloading the liver with large amounts of protein can lead to exhaustion of the organ and deterioration of the health of the skin, hair and nails. Thousands of compounds and chemical functions play a role in the health of your skin, hair, and nails, and it's harmful to single out protein as the most important element. Too much protein can have a negative impact on your liver and therefore your skin, hair and nails. Shift your focus from protein to foods and supplements that offer real support. (Anthony William's article and podcast special on the subject of "the truth about protein" is coming soon!)

The truth about fish oil supplements

Omega-3 fish oil is widely touted as an aid to hair, skin and nail health, but this information is misleading. The highly concentrated mercury contained in krill and fish oil supplements is harmful to the body. Even products that claim to be mercury-free still contain this toxic heavy metal. Regardless of the diet you choose to follow, replace your fish oil supplement with a plant-based omega-3. This doesn't mean you can't eat certain types of fish you like, such as salmon, because a serving of fish contains less mercury than concentrated fish oil.

Healing foods for skin, hair and nails

The food choices you make can have an incredible impact. These foods will support the liver and adrenal glands and therefore improve the health of your skin, hair and nails:

  • Red and green leaf lettuce, which can provide your body with powerful omega-3s.
  • Hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and walnuts (in small amounts) also contain wonderful omega-3s.
  • Celery juice and cucumber juice offer invaluable support for the liver.
  • Figs are great for hair, skin and nail health, as well as for women's reproductive issues. If you can't find fresh figs, include some organic dried figs in your diet.
  • Wild blueberries offer the most powerful liver support of any food in existence.
  • Cherries and other berries are also good for the liver and can support healthy hair, skin and nails.
  • Figs, avocados and bananas are rich in potassium, which is an essential element for the skin.
  • Bananas are fantastic for flushing the liver, cleansing the intestinal tract and maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails.
  • Papaya and mango are especially beneficial for skin care.
  • Lentils that have sprouted are broken down into carbohydrate and stored as glycogen, which offers incredible support for skin, hair and nails.

How to move forward

When you want to improve the condition of your skin, hair and nails, ask what's going on beneath the surface. Could your liver be in need of a boost? Are your adrenal glands under serious strain? Learning more about the underlying problem can help you address the root causes. You can heal your body from the inside out when you know these truths, apply the right protocol, and have patience.
