Hydration!

 
💦h y d r a t i o n💦

Last night on our group coaching call with Abby of Prime Physique Nutrition we had members from California, England, and Australia! 😃 ***If you’d like to sign up for the Conqueror Eczema Academy and be apart of our next round of LIVE coaching, make sure to click HERE!

We discussed many topics, and one of them was the importance of getting hydrated when you wake up in the morning. It’s not only important for people with skin issues but for anyone! We have to remember that we’ve pretty much been fasting all night, so it’s not uncommon to feel super thirsty and dehydrated with extra dry skin. Getting an ample amount of liquids in you in the morning not only helps you hydrate from the inside out by bathing your organs & cells but it stimulates digestion and flushes out toxins!

This is how I like to do it… it has become routine for me and super easy to do: First I like to drink a good amount of room temperature water, then I will drink my celery juice. This is a Medical Medium practice that I’ve adopted and love to do! There are so many health benefits with it, but here’s a few:

  • it’s great for skin health
  • alkalizing the body
  • flushing out toxins
  • aids in digestion
  • it gives me energy
  • and I instantly feel like my skin is refreshed when I drink it!

I like to add a knob of fresh ginger to mine, for extra anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits. A little while after that I will have my warm turmeric tea with lime. It’s basically warm lime or lemon water with the addition of turmeric and a tiny bit of black pepper & coconut oil to make it more bioavailable & to bring out the healing properties in it. Turmeric is highly anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich. After that I will have some fresh fruit, usually, it’s some sort of melon but today I did a mix of blood oranges, valencia oranges, and navel oranges. 🍊🍊🍊 It’s always best to consume fruit as the first meal of the day because it’s super easy to digest, and hydrating… we don’t want to burden the digestive tract with heavy, hard to digest foods because as I mentioned, we’ve been fasting all night. How do you like to hydrate in the morning?💦

Papaya Love! 

 
Get some delicious papaya in your diet for amazing skin health and an optimally functioning digestive system! 💚 Papaya is one of my top fave fruits because of its health benefits and its super sweet almost creamy caramel-like flavour! 😋 I will eat this delish fruit a few times a week!

❓Did you know❓… Papaya is rich in antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes (helps your skin glow & has anti-wrinkle properties), flavonoids and vitamin C, as well as vitamin B (folate and pantothenic acid), vitamin A and vitamin E. It is also a good source of fiber and minerals such as magnesium. Papaya contains an enzyme called papain that helps to break down proteins in the diet and improve the ecology of the gut providing it with a good dose of good bacteria, making it the perfect fruit for anyone suffering from digestive issues like constipation, stomach aches, inflamed intestinal linings, IBS etc. This amazing fruit will help mend the walls of the intestinal tract, reducing inflammation & preventing scar tissue from forming there. Papain is found in many supplements as well as skin care products which can help remove dead skin cells and purify the skin. The enzymes present in papayas (there are more than 500 undiscovered digestive enzymes!) especially the papain and chymopapain, reduce the inflammation in different parts of the body.

Did you know that eating the seeds of papayas are a great anti-germ remedy?! I would eat a spoonful of these seeds if I had any oozing skin. I’d make sure to take it on an empty stomach, crunch the seeds (while holding my nose lol) and swallow it down. This remedy can be done for about two weeks at most then take a week off and do another two weeks if needed. Papaya seeds also help to fight off bacterial and viral infections, parasites & intestinal worms, they can help detoxify the liver and can help combat Candida overgrowth.

TIPS: Look for the Mexican & Central American variety known as Maradol, they are preferable to the Hawaiian variety which has unfortunately suffered from GMO contamination. For the ultimate gut-health repair, drink a tonic of papaya blended with celery juice! #eczemaholistichealing 💜

Thomas’ 8 Day Juice Fast Experience!

My good friend Thomas was kind enough to allow me to do a blog post on his juice fast experience. I became friends with him a few years ago when we “met” online through a Topical Steroid Withdrawal forum. We’ve kept in contact ever since and have encouraged one another through the healing process over the years. I actually got the chance to meet him in person this past summer, and it was such a joy! We got a chance to hang out, eat ripe mangos (freshly picked that day might I add!) and cook some yummy vegan curry together! He was the first person I officially met from the online world and I look forward to hanging out with him in the future again! He has been working diligently and consistently in healing his skin, and I’m so proud of his success. I love that he’s not one to shy away from experimenting with different healing methods and I truly commend his efforts. It can take a bit of willpower to do a fast, but he jumps in full on and always keeps his focus on ways that he can help his skin repair, this is what drives him to stay dedicated. This is the same mentality that I recommend to those who reach out to me needing coaching support…to always remember that it’s not a sprint but a marathon, but all of the great things that you do for your body will add up as they are all cumulative. You have to take responsibility for your health, and not make it a quick fix, but a lifestyle…just incorporating healthier foods, making sure you sleep well, stay stress-free and get enough exercise…they all go together to aid in healing. 
Juicing can help the skin as it allows the body to receive a concentrated amount of nutrients that are super easy to digest (because it is juiced, so no fiber is intact) which allows the body to spend less energy on digesting food, and more energy on healing the illness. Raw fruits and veggies are packed with enzymes (no cooking is involved), dense nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and tons of oxygen for the cells. I highly recommend if not doing a juice fast every once in awhile, at least incorporating a green juice into your daily meals. I like to have my green drink as the last thing that I consume at night as it gives me a great dose of anti-inflammatory nutrients for healing at night, and it gives me great eliminations in the morning (yea, I know TMI haha). I don’t have a juicer, but I just blend it with my high speed blender. If I wanted it like a juiced consistency then I could just put the liquid through a strainer. I switch it up, but my go-to green drink is usually kale, cilantro & parsley (great for heavy metal detox), spinach, romaine, ginger, apple for sweetness, a squirt of lime or lemon (vitamin c helps you absorb the nutrients better), celery and cucumber.
Various green drinks I’ve made in the past. Make sure to switch it up and keep it interesting!
