Your skin reflects your health. The visibility of your skin
may make it the first part of you body to show signs of disease. Skin
abnormalities can indicate metabolic, malignant, and glandular diseases.
Your skin can show hormonal and endocrine changes, hereditary and inflammatory
conditions, benign and malignant growths, trauma and degeneration. As your skin can heal
quickly, any traumatic injury such as cuts and thermal burns are usually followed by
Your skin is also strongly affected by your physical age, by
sun exposure and by your emotions
- and your emotions mostly reflect your relationships.
Because of its rapid growth, your skin ages faster than
most of your other tissues. This aging is further accelerated by sunlight
and stress. If you are over
65 years, you are more likely to have skin infections, excessive
dryness, benign tumors, dermatitis and warts.
The apparent age loss commonly associated with systemic
coaching reflects relaxation in the subcutaneous muscles (muscles just below
your skin), especially in your face, and improvements in your posture,
following the resolution of emotional burdens.

Pigment production in your skin is regulated by a
pituitary hormone, and an increase in melanin pigmentation may indicate a
Suntan pigmentation result from production of melanin.
Melanin protects the skin against sunburn and the carcinogenic actions of
sunlight. Pigmentation may also follow an inflammatory skin disorder, such
as chronic dermatitis, acne vulgaris, lichen planus, and reactions to drugs
Vitiligo is a common pigmentation disorder that results in
depigmented patches of skin. Vitiligo is usually a slow progressive disorder
that is probably caused by auto-immune reactions.
Eczema and Dermatitis
Eczema and dermatitis often denote an inflamed skin, with
swelling of keratinocytes and fluid accumulation. In chronic eczema or
dermatitis, the skin thickens, which lead to roughening and scaling of the
skin surface, and itching.
An important consequence is a loss of skin fluids and
desiccation, which in turn leads to cracking, scaling, and soreness.
Metabolic Skin Disorders
Skin diseases from metabolic disorders can often be easily
diagnosed. This includes deposits of uric-acid salts (gout), calcium salts (calcinosis),
lipids (xanthomatosis), abnormal protein (amyloidosis), mucin (myxedema) and
Porphyria causes skin tissue to become abnormally
sensitive to ultraviolet light, this results in severe sun sensitivity, with
blistering and scarring. The most common form is caused by a combination of
a hereditary enzyme defect and chronic alcoholism.
Emotions & Skin Disorders
Your skin can reflect and reveal your emotional states,
such as embarrassment, lust, fear and anger. Issues of identity are often
reflected in skin conditions, especially in children and young adults. The

skin conditions. Usually, however, a client wants some emotional control or
relationship coaching, and the resolution of skin disorders is a pleasant

unconsciously diminish the sexual overtures of other people, or signal
sexual unavailability, especially for the cases of acne in teenagers and
young adults. Severe teenage acne (zits) can damage the skin and leave
During therapeutic coaching, strange blotches of skin
color, usually shades of pink or paleness, may be seen to come and go, and

Organ language often indicates emotional skin disorders,
with sentences such as: "I'm itching to resolve this issue" or
"That person gets under my skin". Some skin disorders seem to
result from poor hypnotherapy or a client's experiments with self-hypnosis or
