The problem is not really in the skin of your lips, but reflects an inflammatory condition in the colon, parts of the small intestines and some in the stomach. The inner skin that enfolds the GI tract is irritated and may have developed small lesions. Drugs do that, and certain foods and beverages do that as well. The lower lip mostly represents the condition of the large intestines and the upper lip mostly that of the stomach. Eating a lot of acid-forming foods such as animal proteins and any processed, refined, micro-waved, frozen foods acidify the intestinal lining and walls and force the outer "skin" lining in both the intestines and lips to be replaced or shed more quickly and more often than normal. It is not a disease, but a survial mechanism. When you receive Timeless, Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation ( http://www.ener-chi.com ), make sure to follow the guidelines for diet according to body type and the recommended bed and mealtimes. When the lips reduce the swelling you will know that the intestinnal wounds are also healing up. Then you can start liver cleansing. In the meanwhile, to support the body, you may use colosan (now in capsule form from FamilyHealthNews.com ) and a colonic irrigation of colema from time to time.
