copperAbout two years ago I started to notice white patches appearing on my skin around my neck and shoulder area and as the summer continued they were getting worse.

As per usual the doctors said it could be a number of things caused by a number of things!! Then  I saw two different dermatologists (skin experts). Each one came up with a completely different diagnosis – and I know what they really were trying to do was just work out what chemical laden cream they could prescribe me!

So I got to work myself.copper

Trusting my instincts and Ayurvedic practises I started  looking into how to bring the pigmentation back naturally, my first stop was a copper bottle.

So why copper?

♥ Ayurvedic texts recommend drinking water stored in a copper vessel because copper has anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also an essential mineral for the body.

According to Ayurveda water stored in a copper vessels has the ability to balance all three doshas in the body, (vata, kappa and pitta) and does so by positively charging the water.

♥ Copper is the main component in the production of melanin – a pigment that mitigates the colour of your skin, eyes and hair (bye bye grey!). Copper also aids the production of new cells that help replenish the top layers of your skin.

So what are the other benefits of drinking water from a copper vessel..

♦ It relieves aches and pains caused due to swollen joint like arthritis

♦ Stimulates the brain

♦ Helps maintain digestive health

♦ Helps the absorption of iron in the body

♦ Kills harmful bacteria in water

♦ Regulates the functioning of the thyroid

♦ Heals wounds faster and slows down ageing

♦ Helps lower cholesterol, regulate blood pressure and heart rate

copperSadhguru an Indian yogi says..

If you keep water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight as the water acquires a certain quality from the copper which is very good for your liver in particular and your health and energy in general.

In energy medicine copper is used to align the subtle energy bodies, reduce negativity in the mind, stimulate psychic communications (especially receiving) and clear blocks in the path of spiritual development.

So are you in??

Copper bottles, cups or jugs are so easy to find, I picked mine up on Amazon for £15 and has been well worth the investment and done wonders for my skin – no more white patches! Plus all the other healing properties that come with it, a total winner!

Its recommended to store water over night (or min 8 hours) and drink it first thing in the morning for maximum benefits.IMG_2636
