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!

1.Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate.

2.Commit to a Daily Regime

4.Optimize Your Digestion

5.Exercise Daily

6. Breath and Meditate.

10. Beauty as a Sacred Act.

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.

Want to leap into health and longevity with me?

After years of high animal protein,low carbohydrate diet, I  am taking a drastic leap into health and longevity and doing a 30 Day RAW FOOD challenge to take my nutritional plan to the next level in a supportive community. Did you know that cooking oils, animal proteins, starches and sugars can create a host of substances that affect our cells? They have been shown to impair immune function, longevity, alter DNA, accelerate aging, increase inflammation and increase our cancer risk.

Amazing what people can do when they come together. I never thought I would do something like this but I  have been inspired by others who are dong this. My wellness team has been working, playing and visioning. I’m ready to take my health to a whole other level I want to really add value to the world.

I am undergoing a 30Days RAW Challenge. CLICK HERE to join me. Use DISCOUNT CODE rawsome2017 for  LIFETIME membership to this ONLINE platform for $49  if you join by this Friday the first of SEPTEMBER.

By the way, this is the same price I paid and the platform has been made by a group that I trust!

Eating fresh, live food nourishes our body, boosts longevity, calms cravings and helps us feel energized. Eating a 100 percent raw diet is one of the most radically transforming and healing ways to eat. People with cancer, autoimmune conditions and arthritis have experienced some of the most amazing results by eating a simple, clean, raw diet. 100 percent raw is not  something I would  choose to do lifelong. My plan is to be 80%  plant based long term.

I am not trying to push my dietary ideals onto others. I am doing the 30 Day RAW challenge to take my nutritional plan to the next level in a supportive community. I will be trying new clean recipes and shopping lists as I find I get in a rut with preparing the same foods all the time. I will be exploring more recipes with whole foods and without cooking like Fresh “Pad Thai” without the meat and noodles!  Just cut, blend, mix 👌🏽 My husband will not be joining me on the challenge but he will have the benefit of trying new whole foods we have not had before. I trust my deep dive into this challenge will inspire people to live a better life.

On September 04 (Labor Day/Monday), a Healthy New Beginning kicks off with my first official international #30DaysRAW campaign. We have an amazing support community as well as an online program with step by step guide to recipes, shopping lists, kitchen essentials and everything you need!
