I have these tiny bumps on the backs of my arms (tops of arms, like tricep area), as well as both my sons, moreso on my older one.  It's not really dry or anything, it is just like little tiny red bumps.  They feel bumpy and I don't like the way they look!  I have had them forever and they don't seem to go away.  What are they and why are they there?  What can I do about them?

Thanks!

body brushing and lectin avoidance has helped get rid of mine....

I had them all my life and they went away when I cut out wheat and corn.

My ND says they can a sign of needing more essential fatty acids in your diet... or... perhaps not assimilating well the EFA's that you do ingest.

This is what I know as well as being a sign of yeast and bad bacteria

Yes, I was thinking that I had read this is something to do with not efficiently using the EFA's that one gets.  Is it because of a yeast overgrowth?  What can I do for that?  I am totally wheat and corn free and have been for a long time.  I am also 100% compliant to the diet, and have been for some time now, except for the ACvinegar and too much rice products a month or two ago.  Oddly, today they feel a bit better, softer, but a couple days ago, they were really red, after I worked out.

I had been taking fish oil capsule as well but stopped that now also, as I read that realized that oils are not utilized as well by the body as the real thing, such as the fish.  So I cut that out about a week ago, and plan to back WAY off on the olive oil as well.  Maybe that will help.  We'll see.

ABJoe,

That's an interesting link because I was taught to brush from the limbs toward the heart.  

I guess that just brushing at all is better than not. One more example of the myriad of ideas and opinions there are in the world.

I've been told they are due to a Vitamin A deficiency - taking more vitamin A (either through a supplement or foods) got rid of mine.

What are the best sources of Vitamin A in foods?  What is the best vitamin A supplement?

Thanks!

Check out theWorld's Healthiest Foods website to look up which foods are highest in which nutrients and vice versa.

This is a good question!  

I would be very wary of fish oils.  I believe my overconsumption of Fish Oil capsules in the early stages of pregnancy resulted in one of my children being born with a cleft palate.

I just try to eat high-A foods.

beta-carotene is a vitamin A's
precusor, available in carrots.

pre-formed vit A comes from animals sources
(yolks, grass-fed, butter and dairy, shellfish, organ meats, etc.). carotenes come from yellow, red, and orange pigmented fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin A is named Retinol (animal origin) and
Beta-Carotene is the phyto-form of vit. A

BTW, where is Rachel? She popped in around the first of the year, and then *poof!* she's gone again.

I searched for the body brushing thread, but couldn't locate it...

T-Tapp site wants to sell you something for the information but I did find this link on the lyphatic system. CLICK.

Oooh, and here's some more good information about the lymphatic system, dry brushing, and rebounding: CLICK

thanks Drea!
''The body should be dry and naked, and the brush should be swept once or twice in the same direction, across every surface of the body except the face.

Do not scrub, massage, or rotate the brush on the body; just sweep it across the skin in long smooth strokes in the direction of the colon.

Brush up the arms from hands to shoulders, up the legs from feet to hops, down the back and torso, up the bullocks, down the neck, and across the shoulders.''
