We’ve only recently begun to understand the extent of the gut’s role in human health and disease. Among other things, the gut promotes normal gastrointestinal function, provides protection from infection, regulates metabolism and comprises more than 75% of our immune system. An unhealthy gut has been linked to diseases ranging from autism and depression to autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s, inflammatory bowel disease and type 1 diabetes. Recent research has shown that the health of the gut in general, also plays a significant role in both obesity and type 2 diabetes. In this presentation, you will learn the power of your second brain and the 4 keys to keeping your gut healthy and vital.

 

 

Be Your Own Health Detective PART 2

Whatever skin issues you might be manifesting almost always point to imbalances in your body as whole. Your skin reflects the health of your body and that’s great news when the body system is vibrant and running on all cylinders! But when the skin shows evidence of compromise due to skin eruptions, blemishes or  excessive dryness, what do you do to address what your skin is telling you?

Where do you begin?

If you are like most of us, you react quickly, looking for a quick fix, maybe something you saw on a commercial or a magazine or you reach for that left-over tube of skin cream in your cabinet that you haven’t touched in months.

Here is the thing to know about all those “quick” fixes – they only address the surface symptoms and they do nothing to address the underlying imbalances.

To address skin health, actually means you need to address your health from a global perspective.To address skin health, actually means you need to address your health from a global perspective.

To uncover the source of your skin complaints you will probably have do a bit of detective work. Let’s begin like any good “whodunit” by gathering information!

  1. Within the last 3-6 months has your skin appearance changed?
  2. What else has changed in your life?
  3. Has your stress level increased?
  4. Did you change or begin any new medications?
  5. What about your diet? Any changes there?
  6. Have you been exposed to new products in your environment, e.g. perfumes cosmetics, bedding, laundry detergent…?

Ok, now you have some data, right? Now let’s investigate more closely. With a magnified mirror look really look at your skin.  What do you notice about the color, texture, borders of the different areas of your skin?

Love The Skin You’re Living In -10 Habits of Glowing Skin

Your skin is your second mouth. It is also the largest organ of the body. As your second mouth, your skin readily absorbs everything you apply to it. It will absorb into your internal body the nutrients and chemical compounds applied to it, so consider what you’re feeding it.  When we talk about health and wellness we do not usually mention the skin. The skin gets looked at more from a beauty or vanity perspective. Here is what you need to know…

What you put on your skin matters as much as what you eat!

Really?

All the time we spent focusing on what we eat, and we forget about what we feed our skin!

We need to consider what we’re putting on our skin because this essential barrier is not as impermeable as we’d like to think.  Passive absorption of whatever is on the skin occurs quite readily.

For example, you wouldn’t want to put the ingredients in your favorite lotions, potions, creams and cosmetics in your mouth. When you look at topicals from this perspective, if you’re like me, you might make some drastic changes to your skin care routine!

In PART 2 I will be covering how skin problems can be an indication that something is wrong within your body – like toxicity, gut imbalances, hormone imbalances, food allergies, leaky gut, low thyroid function and nutrient deficiencies. Unfortunately, most people inflame the situation by treating it externally with harsh chemicals that can make you even more toxic than before.
