SKIN | How to treat your skin after being sick

It’s cold and flu season and a lot of us have been, unfortunately bedridden, sneezing, and coughing for days. It’s not fun, or glamorous and can wreak havoc on the skin. When our immune system is down inflammation of the skin occurs and a lot can come out topically as we heal ourselves back to health. Not to mention the red dry nose that occurs from blowing into one too many tissues. Here are a few tips and tools to help nourish and support your skin back to a healthy glow!

SKIN | Well Balanced

When writing the signature workshop almost 2 years ago we decided that there were four major categories of health that most people seem to identify with. The first 3 categories we have covered in the journal over the last several weeks. These include environmentally affected, hormonally affected, and gut imbalanced. Today we are going to navigate the theme of being well balanced. After reading all of the SFT categories some of you may be thinking “I don’t really fit with an imbalance?” and that’s we the 4th category is a focus on preventative care. To be well balanced can mean a lot of things such as you may not notice any symptoms but don’t go out of your way to be extra healthy. Or you could be the type who is very well aware of your body and it's needed so you do your best to navigate all areas of health. Either way, this category is a great outline for anyone looking to continue their wellness journey because it encompasses the full mind, body, spirit approach to balance. With our preventative care and intuitive practices, this category can help you transition through the ebb and flow of life with grace and a glow!

TALK | Digestive health

It’s very easy to be disconnected from your own body and what it is trying to communicate to you because most of us are not taught that:

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.
