Healthy glowing skin from the inside out

Hello! Lately I’ve had quite a few clients with skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis. I personally have had acne and eczema and understand that horrible, itchy rash that won’t go away. Both were on my face too so that really didn’t help my self-confidence. I tried all those topical creams and ointments but nothing really worked until I discovered that skin issues are a manifestation of an internal imbalance, usually with your digestion, immune system or ability to detoxify.

Let’s talk about glowing healthy skin from the inside out!

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and one of your primary sources of detoxification. Many factors can influence the health of your skin:

  • Chemical toxins built up in your body that your skin is trying to eliminate
  • Food sensitivities and poor digestive tract function lead to excessive inflammation molecules that deposit in the skin. Poor digestion also leads to poor absorption of essential nutrients like zinc, selenium, vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids which are vital in maintaining healthy skin
  • Since 80% of your immune system is in the lining of the digestive system, digestive issues cause immune system issues and your immune system may not be able to manage inflammation effectively leading to skin issues. It’s all interconnected!
  • Hormone imbalances like excess estrogen and testosterone lead to acne, or lowering levels of progesterone and estrogen can lead to dry itchy skin especially in menopause.
  • Stress! If your nervous system is under constant stress you will release more histamine which leads to the itchiness and discomfort

Often there is more than one factor influencing the health of your skin and it can be challenging to identify where you need the most support. If you experience acne, eczema, or psoriasis it’s time to consider treating your skin from the inside out with some natural options.

10 tips for optimizing fertility

Are you trying to have a baby? How exciting!

Even if having a baby is not in your immediate future, it is important to think about the impact your diet and lifestyle choices have on your fertility. This applies to both partners and I would suggest changes start being made 3-6 months before actively trying to conceive.

Engaging in the following tips for optimizing fertility can support your journey and result in everyone achieving a state of optimized health and wellness.

10 tips for optimizing fertility

  1. Assume you are pregnant. There is truth in the power of positive thinking and setting the intention for welcoming a child into your life.  It will also help you follow the next few tips!
  2. Take a prenatal vitamin and an omega-3 fatty acid supplement regularly.
  3. Eliminate alcohol, caffeine, and processed foods from your diet.
  4. Identify and eliminate environmental exposure to toxins and consider doing a supervised detoxification program with the help of your naturopathic doctor.
  5. Quit smoking and recreational drugs. See your family doctor or naturopathic doctor for assistance.
  6. Visit your family doctor or naturopathic doctor to address existing health conditions.
  7. Speak to your family doctor or naturopathic doctor about the safety of your medications and natural supplements during pregnancy and change them accordingly.
  8. Communicate with your partner about your feelings regarding having children.
  9. To manage stress, make time for self-care by doing something you enjoy like exercise, yoga, meditation, listening to music, etc.
  10. Track your menstrual cycle by monitoring your basal body temperature.  The basal body temperature chart can provide important information to determine when you are fertile and identify menstrual cycle issues.
