One of the main topics I talk about is gut health. Many people have heard of a probiotic but are still confused. Should you take one? Which one? What to look for? Do they work? Not to worry. Before diving into the specifics, let’s be clear. You SHOULD be taking a probiotic. No matter how great your diet is you want to take one… for life.Read More
It is spring time in South Carolina and everything I touch is covered in pollen. My pretty dark blue car is now a delightful shade of yellow. No matter what I do, spring comes with a vengeance every year. I’ve been talking to loads of people all over the country (+ world) who are experiencing the same things. Runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, general gross puffiness. You have got work to do and no time for allergies!
There’s plenty we can do to naturally and holistically kick those allergies in the face.Read More
I use to think it was. I thought being healthy was a luxury that as a high school student, college student, or broke 20 something year old I couldn’t afford. I couldn’t afford $9 juices, a membership to SoulCycle, or even a 1:1 coach to help guide me through the process. Did that mean I couldn’t be healthy or at my maximum health?Read More
I love a good budget. When I was younger I never ever wanted to spend money. I was a hoarder of money. In my opinion, not a bad thing to be. When I went to college and started my own grocery shopping, I tried to keep it around $30-40 per week for 21 meals. Oh yeah, you heard that right.Read More
Whenever I travel I want to feel energized, well, and mentally clear. Unfortunately, due to long trips, airplane air, the food, or a whole host of other reasons it can be easy to feel like crap while you travel or when you get to your destination. Not anymore!Read More
I love peppermint oil. It reminds me of Christmas time but with the oil in my pocket I get to have that feeling all year long! It not only smells delicious but has incredible benefits including helping with respiratory support, giving you energy, boosting mood and alertness, and soothing irritated stomaches.Read More
I have struggled with my own mental health for quite a while. Sometimes I feel great other times I may be anxious or really sad. I have found this to be extremely normal but wanted to share a very powerful tool and step to improve your mental health and stay AHEAD of it so you can try to avoid it getting beyond your immediate control.Read More
I love a good supplement! I’ve found incredible ones and I of course have to tell you about them!
Life Long Vitality is a 3 set supplement system aimed to give you optimal nutrition, cellular, + anti-inflammation support all day long with 100% bioavailable sources (aka it all comes from fruits and veggies).Read More
The modern Western health care system is set up today so you don’t have to do much thinking. It’s also set up so you’re a number that gets moved along. Doctors barely have time for 15 minutes with you. Which is not their fault at all but a result of the commercialized and capitalistic society that governs the system. (I will proceed to stay on my soap box)Read More
It’s no secret I’m a lover of doTERRA’s essential oils. Back when I got my hands on all of the goodies in October, my entire world changed. I basically Marie Kondo’ed my entire life and got rid of all the toxic chemicals and products I had and replaced them with oils. I mean I was full force into upleveling my health.
But I know everyone doesn’t start out with the same vigor or excitement I did. Or maybe you are pumped but have no clue where to start. I’m breaking it down nice and easy on the top three ways I use my oils daily.Read More
But every now and then I’ll grab a drink or a beer. On the RARE occasion, I’ll have one too many but thank goodness my controlling self never lets me have too many but I have learned a thing or two about how to drink in the healthiest way possible so let’s dive in.Read More
I love talking about poops. Why? They’re a huge clue into our overall health including digestion, nutrient absorption, and gut health (aka my favorite topic ever). The color, shape, consistency, and frequency of your poops can tell you a lot.
While you can check out more about exactly what your poop is telling you here, I’m here to talk about how we can be pooping regularly and what this means for our bodies.Read More
Trying to go vegan can be hard and seem really lonely.
I had the help of Youtube and blogs when I wanted to go vegan back in 2013. I was honestly terrified of it because I loved food and didn’t want to have to miss out on anything.Read More
One thing we’re not taught in school or class or really by anyone is that we have the power and answers.
There’s always a time and place for outside help, motivation, and support. But too often we look outwards before inwards. Stop looking for someone else to tell you what your body is already desperately trying to say to you.Read More
There are few things worse than trying to be healthy but everything becomes so dang complicated. You want to make a healthy dinner for you or your family and the recipe has a trillion ingredients all of which you have to buy at Whole Foods.
No thank you.Read More
Here’s the skinny on supplements: I love them. Taking supplements does not mean you are deficient in something, you can eat whatever you want and make up for it in supplements, or that you’re healthy eating isn’t cutting it.Read More
I suffered with pretty bad anxiety junior and senior year of college. It felt like I was trapped in my mind.
The more I spoke to others, the more I realized I was not alone even though at times it felt like it. There were so many people suffering from the same thing and I was determined to find out how to overcome it.Read More
One time I was so sore from working out that I was walking around my university campus and literally fell down because my legs would not bend enough for me to walk.
I get soreness…Read More
