Have you ever sat in a doctor’s office explaining your ongoing pain and symptoms and the response you get is that your illness is “in your head”?! Doctors have even labeled this “medically unexplained symptoms” to designate that they see no reason for the patient to be experiencing such symptoms, and therefore assume them to be psychogenic. ⠀ .⠀ ⠀ This phenomenal is also knows as healthcare gaslighting and, unfortunately, it is a growing epidemic within the medical community. In her book Doing Harm, Maya Dusenbery talks about how women are either told that they are crazy or that the pain they feel is simply a “normal” part of womanhood. Perhaps the underlying reason for all this is the fact that 70% of chronic health patients are women, but 80% of participants in studies for chronic illness are male. According to Dusenbury, women are twice as likely to die when seeking helping for a heart attack because doctors dismiss it as them having a panic attack.⠀ .⠀ ⠀ This is why we need more healthcare⠀ platforms created BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN who understand the female body and its anatomy!⠀ .⠀ ⠀ Click the link in bio and JOIN THE MOVEMENT!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #feminade#womenshealth#reproductivehealth#womenshormones#hormones#hormonehealth#knowyourhormones#holistic#alternativemedicine#naturopathic#naturopathicmedicine#rootcause#women#empowerment#empoweringwomen#womenschoice#gaslighting#healthcare#bywomenforwomen

I wanted to share with you guys something I just realized recently thanks to my sister. We spend money on the organic food we buy and even more money on our skincare products to keep us looking as young as possible. Many of us even invest in buying the right filter for the water we drink, but what about when we shower? When we brush our teeth or even wash our face? Like with everything else, it’s the simplest things that we don’t pay attention to that really make a big difference. Skin is our largest organ and it is also the largest getaway for toxins to get inside our bodies. If you know about the importance of drinking filtered water for your skin and body, you can only imaging how important it is to shower with filtered water. When we shower with warm water, our pores are open and it’s easy for chlorine and other chemicals to penetrate inside the skin. I have recently invested in a shower filter and I just cannot believe that I didn’t think about it years ago. Thanks @narnia_am ❤️
Still trying to figure out who came up with the idea that vegan food only consist of salads? 😮 Here’s a Vegan Indian Chick’n Tikka Masala 🍛 w/ Green Peas White Rice that I just made! 🤤 The more clients I work with who want to be vegan, the more plant-based recipes I feel obliged to make! These recipes also help other clients, who aren’t vegan, have a #meatlessmonday each week! • Comment below with a vegetable or fruit 🍎🥬if you want the recipe👇🏽

What is an integral part of being a well-rounded, “healthy” person? . Being a part of a COMMUNITY👯♀️ . As humans, we are social beings and connecting with others is vital to our sense of well-being. . Developing a diet and exercise routine that works best for you, as well as finding ways to improve your mindset and reduce stress are all SUPER important, BUT… . Sometimes when you’re transitioning from a lifestyle that was making you sick to one that will make you well, it can be isolating. I’m talking about those times when you have to decline: . 🍸happy hour invites 🍕late-night pizza runs 🙅🏻♀️being around those who aren’t aligned with your new way of life . After 6 months on an anti-inflammatory diet, I found that my regimented schedule left me bored and unfulfilled, even though I had lost weight and increased my energy levels. . That all changed when I joined Crossfit.🏋🏻♀️ . Crossfit turned out to be so much more than exercise for me. Unanticipated benefits included: . ✨increased awareness of my body, which led me to be more adventurous in other areas of my life. . ✨increased confidence, making it easier and more pleasurable for me to connect with others. . ✨decreased fear of risk-taking, opening me up to creating more possibilities in my life. . ✨forming a community of like-minded people—something I didn’t even realize I had been longing for. . This is why I emphasize the importance of building a “healthy” community—it is the place where we can find the balance between physical and mental fitness. . Where do you find your sense of community and how has it positively impacted your life? Let me know in the comments!👇 . . . . . . . #naturopath#naturopathic#naturopathicmedicine#naturopathy#naturopathicdoctor#guthealth#guthealthmatters#guthealthy#guthealthiseverything#healthygut#healthyguthealthylife#healthyguthealthymind#foodthatheals#leakygut#leakygutsyndrome#bloatedbelly
The Good Carbs ☝🏼🙏🍠 - Which of these is your daily go-to? - Next time you hear someone say carbs are bad or that they lead to weight gain, just remember this photo. These carbs are extremely beneficial for the human body. - The nutritional literature is very clear at this point that these foods help to normalize weight, protect against the top chronic diseases in our society (heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes), improve digestion, and provide great micro- and macronutrient nutrient profiles (fiber, vitamins, and minerals). - For each animal product you remove from your diet, replace it with one of the foods from this photo, especially if you're dealing with weight issues. The problem with excess fat (in most cases) is NOT these carbohydrate sources, rather, it is the excess animal fat, calories, cholesterol, animal hormones and protein, and a stress-predominant lifestyle. - #hclf#wfpb#carbup
Hellooo!! I wanted to share with you guys one of my go-to facial masks. I do this mask at least once a month and every time I love the results. This mask will disinfect your pores, kill the acne-causing bacteria and naturally dry out any pimples and white heads on your face. Because of its natural drying properties it’s imperative to Moisturize right after you rinse off. You may see some redness , which is completely fine. This is the part where I apply my go-to moisturizer #arganoil. When it comes to your moisturizer, please make sure that you use a natural moisturizer because if you use a moisturizer with alcohol or other chemicals, it may cancel out the benefits of this mask. Please let me know if you try it and if you have any questions . Happy Monday everyone ❤️❤️❤️
ANXIETY I wanted to post this in celebration of family day. Talk to your family and friends about your anxiety. Let them know what your experience with anxiety is like and how they might be able to help you, or what you need from them. Consider talking to a health professional or contacting a help line when needed too. Support from family and friends can make all the difference to an anxious or depressed person. Reach out and help someone you love who is struggling with mental health. Mental illness, mood and anxiety disorders have been stigmatized for far to long.... let’s work on changing that!
Feeling moody? Jawline acne or irregular cycles? Quit the sugar. Sugar spikes in the bloodstream releases insulin and the hormone cortisol which mess with the body’s normal hormone signals. Lower the amount of simple carbs and sugar in your diet and try increasing omega-3 fats to support normal hormone balance. (Think nuts, seeds, olives, avocado, fish) 🥑🐟🌷 . . . . . #diet#nutrition#hormones#hormonebalance#naturopathic#naturalmedicine#acne#sugar#inflammation

Meditation 🌿 You hear about it everywhere these days. How important it is for the average busy working person who needs to quiet their mind. But honestly, meditation is what you make of it. I am such a big believer in carving some time out of the day to sit in silence, go inward and reflect. Meditation is not about “clearing your mind of all thoughts,” but rather just passively observing what comes to mind without any judgement. That being said, for me, meditation comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s a long bath at the end of the day, sometimes it sitting down with a good book and a cup of tea. Meditation is truly a form of self-care. So whether you’re deep into yet another jam packed exam week (like us 🙋🏼♀️) or you’re just feeling the ups and downs of life right now, make some time in the day for yourself. Sit in silence or go for a walk or do whatever it is that feels best for you. Your body and mind will thank you 💞 -Lauren

Sometimes in life you receive signs. ⛔️🛑 When you ignore those signs they get louder and louder. # Sometimes they show up as a loss or an injury or illness. 🤕🤢🤮 # It’s OK to stop, take a beat, retreat, reevaluate, pivot and regroup. Sometimes how and when you think it’s supposed to go is not the way and the when. # If you let go and open yourself to receive, you’ll stop trying to swim 🏊♀️ upstream and effortlessly get to your goal in a way you never imagined!

Happy Monday !!!! Many of us buy so many products to use for a specific reason, some can be as exfoliates, moisturizers , cleansers and so on. Since I started switching to natural products myself, I have found that one product has many uses and the best part is that I didn’t have to worry about any side effects. #arganoil has been called luxury 🥇#LIQUIDGOLD 🥇 for its many amazing properties that people are becoming more familiar with. These are just a few ways that #arganoil could be used, the list is much longer . For any questions please feel free to DM us and we can answer any questions you may have. Have a great day ❤️
❤️ Hello guys! Surrounding urself with positivity is as important as eating healthy and taking care of your body.Happiness is contagious and surrounding yourself with truly happy people will infect you with positive thinking. We are careful with the ingredients on our food, on our products for healthier skin and hair and forget to pay attention to what makes our minds healthy. 🤓🤗 health starts from deep within 🙌🏻💪🏻. #ammatis
❤️Healthy Beauty comes in all shades and in all skin types.Did you know there are 5 main skin types that include : DRY, OILY, NORMAL, COMBINATION and lastly SENSITIVE. These skin types apply to all different types of ethnicities and backgrounds ; when using natural ingredients our skin may react to them slightly different but we all benefit from the results. 🤓Myth #1 : “People with oily skin don’t need a moisturizer “ this is actually very far from the truth, we all need moisturizers regardless of how oil your skin may be, the key is to look for a NON-COMEDOGENIC moisturizer , which means that it does not clog your pores and this will actually minimize the oil production on your skin. 🤓Myth #2 only women need skin products like toners, cleansers and moisturizers. When it comes to using the right natural products, both men and women ca benefit from the results of a toner and moisturizer, especially for those men who shave often. When men shave , they may irritate the skin and make their skin more prone to breakouts and razor bumps. Using a toner, like witch hazel or rose water will help tighten the skin and prevent breakouts. Moisturizing after shaving is great for your skin because it will keep your skin hydrated and prevent wrinkles 🤓🤗. Photograph credit: the amazing @angelicadass ❤️
🙋🏻♀️ Being healthy is achievable, STAYING healthy is the challenging part. Please read the ingredients that go on your skin. If you don’t understand the ingredients, do a quick search and see if it’s worth buying the product. Healthy beauty looks Better 🤗🤗
Hello!!🙋🏻♀️ I wanted to share with you all something that I have been using for many years. I try to use natural products as much as I can, and when it comes to my face I am very attentive to the ingredients in my products. I usually keep the rose water in the fridge , and when I wake up in the morning I put some in a cotton and apply it all over my face, especially around my eyes to bring down the puffiness. The cold helps tighten the pores and gently tone the skin. 👉🏼With hazel, alcohol free preferably, works amazing as an aftershave for Him, it will minimize razor bumps, prevent ingrown hairs and helps with acne. It’s antiseptic and astringent (tightens skin) properties, make witch hazel a great aftershave and an EVERYDAY toner. 🙆🏻♀️ I love these two beauty hacks so much, that sometimes even use them together 🙊🙊 👉🏼 Lastly, I always keep on small #thayers witch hazel bottle in my bag to use after my workout, this prevents breakouts due to sweat.💦 🚨The last step of using a toner, is using the right moisturizer , toners may leave your skin feeling dry so using moisturizers is a must . Let us know how you like it, we #ammatis wish you a great Day.
How is your water intake? One of the best things we can do for our bodies ESPECIALLY our skin , is making sure we start our day with a warm glass of water and drink at least 8 glasses of filtered water, preferably in glass cups. We strongly advise that you don’t drink water fast and at once, drink slowly so you don’t put pressure on your kidneys. If you hydrate regularly you will notice that your energy levels will improve and most importantly your skin will be hydrated at all times. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink water, set a timer on your phone and drink one glass every hour. It’s recommended to drink water at room temperature. We #ammatis wish you a great and productive hump day ❤️
I have personally been using this beauty tip for many years, and it has been great for my skin. Do not use this if you are tanning because it will make your skin lighter and even out your skin tone, so you will most likely remove your tan. 🚨Disclaimer: lemons have a high acidity Ph of 2, which can be harsh on your skin if used too many times. I do this once or twice a month and I make sure I use a great toner and moisturizer to protect my skin afterwards. You may experience a tingling sensation when you apply it on pimples. If it is the first time , I strongly advice to not leave it on your face for more than 5 minutes. I hope you enjoy it. #ammatis
Hello everyone!!! I hope everyone is staying warm and moisturized this winter, get your first bottle of 100% pure #arganoil at www.ammatisinc.com and let us know how your skin loves it 🤗🤗. Much love from the #ammatisinc family😘
Happy Tuesday Everyone ❤️ today is a good day to show your skin some love with the perfect Liquid Gold , #arganoil And don’t forget , be familiar with the ingredients on your products, HEALTHY BEAUTY LASTS LONGER THAN HARMFUL BEAUTY 🤓❤️
We make it our mission to honor the work of these women who spend hours collecting the seeds from the Argan trees and then extracting the oil from the Argan kernels. The hard work of extracting oil from the kernel of the #argan tree is mainly performed by Berber women, the indigenous people of North Africa, many of whom live in Morocco’s argan region. For many of these women, this is the only way for them to provide for their families. The scarcity of this liquid gold, along with the hard and tedious labor it takes to make just one liter of oil, is what sets Argan Oil apart form many other oils, and especially what preserves its endless properties. Have a wonderful day everyone ❤️❤️
