Do more of what makes you happy! 😊
There is a reason that I ask my patients what makes them happy. Often people know what makes them happy but are not making time for it, because in our go-go-go world, doing things just because they bring us joy is not always considered an important enough to be part of our daily to-do list. But it should be! Besides being a pleasant feeling, happiness has measurable physiological effects on our endocrine and immune systems. Happiness actually leads to increases levels of secretory IgA (an immune marker) and lowers levels of the “stress hormone” cortisol. The mind-body connection in action 🤩 So, if you’re not already doing so, make sure you start prioritizing your own happiness today! ✨

PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) should not ruin your month!
WHY it occurs ⬇️
Fluctuations in progesterone and estrogen are normal throughout your cycle. Progesterone naturally begins to decrease prior to your period leaving you feeling more sensitive and emotional due to the fact that progesterone has a calming effect. If there is an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone, either estrogen being too high or progesterone being too low, this can make PMS symptoms MUCH worse. Low progesterone can leave you with symptoms of spotting before your period, anxiety, insomnia, irritability, depression and hot flashes. Having high estrogen in relation to progesterone can leave you with symptoms of anxiety, depression, brain fog, food cravings, weight gain, water retention, breast tenderness, irregular bleeding and cyclical headaches or migraines.
Other factors that can make PMS worse are having a low nutrient diet comprised of junk food, fried food, low fiber and limited vegetables, calcium and magnesium deficiencies, low protein, serotonin deficiency and blood sugar imbalance.
If you need help managing your PMS and getting to the underlying reason its so hard to deal with there are SO many naturopathic options for you! 👩⚕️

This little gland in your neck is the thyroid gland. It produces just 1 teaspoon of hormone in a whole year! But, without it, your endocrine system can get imbalanced. Your reproductive system has receptors for thyroid hormone-- so the thyroid is an essential component to fertility! ⠀
Optimal levels of TSH are between 1-1.5. Also, you want to make sure to have your T3, T4, Free T4, Thyroid binding globulin, TPO, and TGA tested. ⠀
Make sure your fertility doctor is looking at all of your thyroid hormones to assess thyroid function! Non-optimal function of thyroid will make it harder to conceive, and harder to stay pregnant. Studies show antibodies to your thyroid, especially TPO, increase rates of #miscarriage
Now you know. ⠀

Healing takes place in #greenplaces
. For 99.99% of our time on this planet, humans have been closely connected to nature - it is only very recently that we've lived in towns & cities, and spent most of our daily lives indoors - we suffer physically & emotionally from this disconnection with the natural world. Spending just 10 minutes each day in a green space has measurable health benefits - & the uplift in mood will stay with you all day.

Calendula officinalis 🧡 Enamorada del sol, crece durante todo el año y sus flores se abren en dirección a los rayos del sol y cerrándose en ausencia de este, al igual que la maravilla. Es una poderosa medicina como regeneradora y depuradora de las toxinas del cuerpo a nivel físico y sutil, aporta grandes fuerzas de calidez y compasión al alma humana, además de calmar los dolores y aliviar las penas.
Regida por el sol trabaja directamente con el chakra plexo solar, que cuando está bloqueado tiende a la pena y la rabia llevando a estados de desgano, amargura y depresión.
Ésta limpia el hígado (órgano donde se alojan estas emociones tóxicas) y también equilibra la energía irradiando luz de carácter solar. Siendo una aliada en el proceso de regeneración y como estimulante, potenciando la energía para manifestar nuestra creatividad y con calidez abriéndonos al mundo exterior desde la confianza en sí mismo, así también desarrollando la capacidad de comunicarse desde la empatía y la amabilidad en vez desde una actitud defensiva e hiriente.
Es antiinflamatoria, antiséptica, anti bacteriana, antifúngica, emoliente y cicatrizante ideal para todas las afecciones a la piel. También es digestiva, depurativa, antiespasmodica, emenagoga (en altas concentraciones abortivas) útil para dolores menstruales, problemas digestivos y heridas internas. 🌼
Contraindicado en uso interno para gestantes, lactantes y niñes menores de 10 años.

is very important to the human body check out the patent information application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/015,348, filed Apr. 12,
has been shown to have considerable wound and ulcer #healing
capacity and strong antimicrobial activity. Recognizing those utilities, members of the medical profession have engaged in treatment protocols involving the local application of honey. Wounds and ulcers which were unresponsive to conventional treatments have, when treated with honey, become sterile within one week. In 1980 it was reported that necrotic malignant breast ulcers were effectively treated with honey. Wounds disrupted after Caesarean sections have been shown to heal after application of a thin layer of honey without the need for resuturing. Open wounds, infected wounds, e.g., vulvectomy, infected perineum and infected abdominal wall wounds healed faster when treated with honey than when treated conventionally. Healing processes are generally not hindered by the presence of microorganisms in the honey or in the infected wounds or ulcers. Even when wounds are challenged with high inocula of infectious bacteria, honey remains superior to conventional wound healing medications, with the honey-treated wounds exhibiting less neutrophil infiltration and marked proliferation of angioblasts and fibroblasts. Honey dressings have also proven superior in the treatment of superficial wounds and burns, with patients experiencing increased wound sterilization, earlier healing, more pain relief and less irritation without allergies and other side effects often experienced during conventional healing processes. Honey also appears to promote rapid wound debridement, replacement of sloughs with granulation tissue and rapid epithelialization and absorption of oedema from around the margins.
Honey has great potential for use as a medicinal antimicrobial. That potential has been demonstrated by the tremendous amount of research in that area. Honey exhibits pronounced #naturalmedicine #woundcare #tea #cure #detox #sweet #foodporn #bees #medicine #masterherbalist #herbalism

What do you do keep your car smelling nice? I have a car diffuser, but it's not always convenient because it has to be plugged in.
I'm so excited about this year's Father's Day kit! It includes an aroma clip diffuser that you can attach to a car vent or an air vent in your home to distribute the aroma of oils. It also comes with a 15 mL bottle of the Island Mint blend.
