FOOD | A springtime recipe

Spring is the perfect time to start incorporating whats in season. Energetically this can help us shed winter weight and transition into brighter, warmer days. Spring can bring up a lot of restless emotions, feelings of change and uncertainty and food can help us combat and manage these feelings. A great way to find out whats in season is to make time for your local farmers market. Talk to the farmers and people selling the fruits and vegetables to ask them what they are growing, what their favorites are and what type of farming techniques they use.

FOOD | Digestive health

Digestive health is at the core of our 4 SFT categories and we touched on intuitive digestion as it relates to our skin, so today we're going to share what you can do nutritionally to rebalance and optimize your gut! Gut health is what makes or breaks our overall well being and when looking at fixing any health concern, tips for better digestion can and should be implemented as well. Let’s begin by going over a few questions: Do you have a daily bowel movement? Do you experience bloating, stomach pains or constipation? Do you notice any of the symptoms on your skin as mentioned in our last post? If you are have answered yes to any of the above questions you can find the root cause to relate to your gut. We also can relate back to our environmental or hormonal category of health and related it back to gut health. We want to teach you how to listen closely to your own digestion and go over a few simple tools to help rebalance your gut.

FOOD | Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones; we all have them and we are all affected by them. Last week we started to dive into the subject of hormones in our skin post but this week we want to talk about the internal support needed for proper balance. This is for all our menstruating friends who were told in middle/high school health classes that you are to grin and bear the symptoms around your periods. We also often get pressure from doctors that prescription medications are the only way to balance and regulate periods and painful symptoms. What if that doesn't resonate with you? Or what if there was another option to choose from? Our food, lifestyle, beauty and household products choice can all have an effect on how our hormones react. Whether you are dealing with infertility, PCOS, or monthly breakouts we believe you can start to heal yourself and restore balance from within. You do not have to suffer through your monthly cycle. By tuning into what our bodies need, making mindful decisions about our food and taking time out for ourselves you can start to manage your monthly flow with ease! Here are 4 key suggestions to jump-start your hormonal balance:
