Seasonal Living: Inside - Out
Quite often in life we forget that our internal health truly affects our external health.
“We are what we eat”…is not just a phrase your grandmother made up to get you to eat those collard greens. It’s really true!
Below are a few ways to boost your internal health + will assist in keeping your entire system in a state of well-being.
Drink More Water
Your resolution to drink more water will be easier if you treat yourself to a nice new water bottle.
My latest favorite way to tote any beverage on the go:
And then add a daily shot of The Beauty Chef HYDRATION Inner Beauty Boost. Apart from tasting like you’re on a tropical vacation, it is a bio-fermented and coconut-infused probiotic, designed to support gut health and enhance skin radiance from the inside out.
Eat Your Greens
The cold Winter season really doesn’t have you craving a big cold, green salad does it? There are ways to get your daily intake of greens that will bring on those feelings of nourishment and warmth that we’re looking for this time of year.
Below are a few unique + delicious ways to eat your greens:
Or, make it easier for yourself and add a daily dose of The Beauty Chef’s CLEANSE Inner Beauty Powder into your diet. Full of alkalizing super greens this supplement that includes 45 certified organic and bio-fermented fruits, vegetables, seeds, roots, algae, grasses, plant fibre, purifying herbs and digestive enzymes. The formula is designed to help detox and purify your body on the inside to promote smoother, clearer skin on the outside.
Last week I mentioned eating warming foods during the Winter season. There’s actual science behind that recommendation.
Are your meals composed mainly of cold cuts, salads, iced drinks and other cold foods? Before your stomach can even begin to digest these things, it has to call up enough of your body’s energy to warm or “cook” what you’ve just eaten. Then, additional energy is required to start digesting what’s sitting in your stomach. Feeling sluggish after eating, or feeling bloated and belching a lot are signs that your body is unhappy with your diet. If you have any of these signs or simply feel off, we highly recommend this simple shift in your diet. See what happens when you include nourishing soups and warming foods on a daily basis. By eating warming foods, you can reduce the amount of energy needed to digest the food and instead, allow your body to store energy for other purposes. Try this lifestyle shift for a week. See what kinds of benefits you notice.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is over 200 years old. It is based on the premise that certain natural substances are able to stimulate the body's own healing mechanisms, allowing the body to heal itself. After symptoms of a condition have been alleviated, homeopathy works to reestablish internal order at the deepest levels. Because very small doses are used, all this can be
accomplished without negative side effects.
I call it "Homeo-happy-pathy" because it makes me so darned happy to heal myself naturally, to feel like I have control over what goes into my system!
Sprayology ImmunoBooster Supports the body's own capability to fight illness. Best when used daily to avoid getting sick, not just when you start to feel symptoms.
Sprayology Daily Multi boosting metabolism, enhancing immune system, strengthening the optical system, enhancing overall body health.
These and all Sprayology sprays are sprayed under the tongue and go directly into the bloodstream. Vitamins taken in a pill form have to go through your digestive system and some of the nutrients are lost in the digestion process, broken down by digestive enzymes. With Sprayology you receive the nutrients your body needs.
On a scale of 1 to 10 what would you say your mood is during the Winter? No need to really answer that…I think I know the answer. And I have a few solutions.
Flower alchemy is based on the premise that your body operates like a finely-tuned instrument. Sometimes, it rings with perfect pitch, everything in perfect alignment. Sometimes, it needs a little re-tuning. Flower essences act as a natural tuning fork, bringing your body back in tune with a subtle electrical vibration. And the best part is: you can choose your desired vibration. Maybe today it’s love, curiosity, or compassion. Maybe tomorrow it’s trust, focus, intimacy or all of the above! I always like Inner Peace + Infinite Love this time of year.
Essential oils can help alter our physical, mental and emotional well-being by triggering and strengthening our bodies’ own natural processes. They are made up of tiny molecules that can deliver healing properties to the systems that control our physiological state. The best way for the body to absorb the therapeutic components of essential oils is a combination of inhalation through the nose and absorption through the surface of the skin. 21 Drops has created oil combinations that can help lift your spirits, ease aches and pains and even help abstain from cravings!
Most of these solutions can be found in THE pearl boutique. Along with these internal remedies we have external remedies and seasonal treatments to help support you throughout the year.
