The Health Benefits of Eustress

16/09/2021

Fun fact: there are two different types of stress. Distress and eustress. Most of us, when thinking about stress, are often referring to distress which, according to Google, is “extreme anxiety, sorrow, or pain.” Eustress, on the other hand, can be defined as a moderate or normal psychological stressor that is interpreted as being beneficial for the person experiencing it. Examples of positive stress can be having a baby (someone to care for other than yourself), buying a house (now having…

PREVENT EARLY AGING: Your Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients Guide

15/09/2021

Inflammation isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, it’s our immune system’s attempt to alert the rest of the body of a potential substance or invader that could harm it, and then a trojan horse of white blood cells deploy to protect it. Think: pathogens, damaged cells, and toxic compounds. Inflammation is a signal that something is wrong and we need to heal, stat. However, in modern society, inflammation is rampant. We suffer inflammation coming from every angle—internally and externally, from pollution,…

Targeted Wellness: DIFFERENT HERBS for Different Needs

14/09/2021

There are a billion different herbs and supplements out there. Influencers and professional marketing teams have a way of making us feel like we need it all, all the time, every day. The truth is, our bio-individuality is this beautiful thing that keeps us attuned to our personal needs. When we take the time to align with our physical truths—that is, to be mindfully and bodily aware—we know where and when we are lacking and what areas need support. Maybe our PMS has been…

The Top WRINKLE-FIGHTING FOODS

13/09/2021

When we think of nutrition, we tend to default to a body-centric notion. We think of being slim, burning fat, which foods are best for proper digestion, etc. And that’s great—there is nothing wrong with wanting to stay in shape, and excellent digestion is the baseline for health. But intentional eating can also be targeted. Most nutritionally dense foods will not be good for only one thing. Superfoods are powerful allies for many of our body’s functions, but when we consider them for…

The Healthiest Snacks to SATISFY LATE-NIGHT CRAVINGS

11/09/2021

Some days, the idea of a nibble post-sup does nothing for us at all. Maybe we ate dinner later than usual, or we’re at a point in our cycle where we are simply satisfied. We have an appreciation for those days. Other times, we’re harder to satisfy. We absolutely need (not want, need) a sweet bite after dinner, and later before we’re drifting off, we get that insatiable hankering for more snacks. How do we fight the craving for late-night munchies? Do we…

IS A CAFFEINE DETOX Right for You?

08/09/2021

There is a lot of talk of detox in the wellness world, and a lot of that begs the question, “Is that necessary?” Don’t our bodies do detoxing for us, like, it’s their job? Well, yes and no. Our bodies do work hard doing a ton of detoxification—our livers, kidneys, bladders, digestive system, skin, etc., are all working all the time to rid toxins from our bodies as they enter through environmental and voluntary input. The issue now becomes the input—it’s a…

WHAT NOT TO DO If You Want to Increase Your Metabolism

30/08/2021

As catchy as the title sounds, keep in mind that it’s not technically about increasing metabolism per se—it’s about allowing it to function optimally without clogging it up through suboptimal diet and lifestyle choices, which I’m discussing below. Metabolism isn’t just about burning calories or increasing our basal metabolic rate (although I provide a few tips on that, too). This is about something far more important—preventing metabolic dysfunction. To encourage long-term optimal metabolic health, doing nothing but following the five recommendations below will not only…

5 Healthy Habits to Help MANAGE ANEMIA

27/08/2021

More than 3 million Americans are affected by anemia. While rarely a deadly condition, anemia is still a serious health concern that can have a ripple effect throughout the body. It’s so common, in fact, that we kind of forget exactly what it is. Anemia is essentially an iron deficiency and can be partially met by consuming more iron. However, it’s a bit more complex than that. Anemia occurs when a person doesn’t have enough red blood cells, or an insufficient amount…
