The Good Life Philosophy For Living Healthy
We don’t believe in diets. Period. Living healthy means something different for everyone. One person’s medicine is another person’s poison. And just because a way of eating or living works for one person doesn’t mean it’s right for another. We are each unique beings with varying genetics, experiences, nutritional needs and bio-availability.
/ NATURAL BEAUTY IS MEDICINE
We believe in healing the body by simply going back to our natural resources and incorporating them into our daily lives with ease! What you put on your body is just as important as what you put inside of it. Use non-toxic products to improve your health and wellness the natural way.
/ LISTEN TO YOUR GUT
If you’re craving it, you need it. Yep, if you’re craving salt, eat salt. If you have a sweet tooth, don't ignore it! This is your body’s way of asking for particular nutrients and minerals. It’s all about the quality of foods you turn to in satisfying that craving. Learn to be so in-tune with your body that you’re finishing each other’s sentences.
/ TASTE THE RAINBOW
Diversification is key. Trend diets will restrict you to specific food groups, which may cause digestive issues; however, your body depends on a diverse range of fuel for various biological functions. So indulge in color, and find a healthy balance of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats!
/ BODY, MEET MIND
You can eat all the kale you want, but it doesn’t make you the poster child of perfect health. The mind must be right there, in alignment, with your actions. Daily thoughtful practices such as breathing exercises and using non-toxic products on your body are just as crucial to your physical health and well being. And, we promise, there are simple ways to incorporate these into your busy agenda!
/ ANTI-INFLAMMATORY IS CHIEF
The Standard American Diet is very acidic, feeding us a range of Omega 6 to 3’s at a 40 to 1 ratio. Hello, chronic inflammation. Inflammation in the body causes vulnerability to lowered immune function, weight gain and disease. When we support our system with healing foods vs. inflammatory foods, the body can mend itself. Foods deeply rooted in this concept are coconut oil, dark leafy greens, avocados and bone broths.
/ USE NON-TOXIC PRODUCTS
Beauty companies introduce thousands of new products a year to our shelves, and clearly, not all of them are good for your health. A great rule of thumb: if there’s little to no information about the ingredients used in the product, chances are that it’s not a great choice for your skin.
/ BEST CHOICES
You wouldn’t put rocks in your gas tank and expect it to run smoothly. From eating well to using non-toxic products, be mindful about the quality of food you put into your body and the products you put on your skin in order to mitigate the toxic load you take on. But, our ultimate rule of thumb here? -- SIMPLY, DO THE BEST THAT YOU CAN.
/ IT’S ALL YOU
We’re not exaggerating: self-care and non-toxic products are the cornerstones to living healthy. It’s in these rituals of nurturing your body and spirit that you’re then able to increase energy levels, bolster immunity, absorb nutrients, and experience life as your very best self. Whether it’s in an Epsom bath, or getting keen on a facemask, it’s important to discover your favorite ways to indulge in taking care of YOU.
