Today I am going to share with you a powerful secret I’ve recently unlocked in the world of skin care.
After eight and a half years of researching ayurvedic and naturopathic medicine, it’s become so clear to me that there’s no better way to achieve glowing skin than to start on the inside!
I mean… we know this, right? We’ve all heard it a million times…
Drink plenty of water…
These basic concepts, although critical, are not big news…
The truth is there’s more to health than the three basics mentioned here.
And the powerful, not so secret, “secret” I’m going to share with you has the power to radically change your life and support what your body is already capable of doing… and… despite being somewhat hidden and taught incorrectly, it’s been around for thousands of years.
You’ve heard me say it a bunch, I’m like a broken record when it comes to showing you how truly capable your body is of healing itself.
The truth is we have the power to avert illness, chronic disease, inflammation, auto-immune issues, and much more.
Our bodies contain systems and processes that operate on facts and when we give it, or “feed” it proper data, it will compute health and beauty.
Let’s dive in.
The first big idea is a concept called autophagy… I know… super weird sciency word. Stick with me! It is FASCINATING.
Autophagy happens whenever you put your body in a starvation mode, planned and purposeful starvation mode induced by intermittent fasting. When your body goes into starvation mode, it starts PRESERVING the healthy cells and then uses the broken down cells as FUEL!
It’s kinda like taking your car into the shop and putting a brand new battery in it, that’s what autophagy is! That’s what’s happening when you’re fasting!
Your body is unlocking STEM CELLS, causing your body to use up the broken cells and to ignite your healthy, young, killer cells.
Stem cells are so powerful that some people are spending tens of thousands of dollars on injections. This is because the healing benefits they provide the body are extremely substantial!
If you’re not completely familiar with the incredible things stem cells do, I have included a quick bulleted list for you.
- Reduces pain, decreasing the need for medications
- Increase range of motion and flexibility
- Improves sleep quality
- Decreases damage to the nerves
- Increases collagen production
- Generates new heart and blood vessel tissue
- Aids in healing skin wounds
- Decreases formation of scar tissue
- Reduces hair loss
- Reduces recovery time for injuries or wounds to heal
You’re literally becoming younger, cleansing, detoxifying and boosting your body’s healing capabilities.
Combine the powerful forces of intermittent fasting with nutrient-dense smoothies… and your body is capable of unlocking the fountain of youth….
I guess all of those explorers could have saved themselves a trip! Ha!
Not only will your skin look younger and more radiant, but you’ll also find that bloating vanishes, brain fog diminishes, and your health and energy are restored…
I’ve even experienced healthy weight loss.
When you combine this with nutritious smoothies… not all smoothies are created equally… the health and beauty benefits are almost unthinkable!
In my 14 Day True Beauty Challenge I have been teaching thousands of women how to gain all of the incredible benefits of intermittent fasting. And today, I want to share with you one of my favorite smoothie recipes.
This smoothie fuels your body with only the best vitamins and nutrients, giving you healthy hydrated skin.
Personally, since implementing these rituals into my life, I have noticed a huge difference in both my energy levels and skin radiance.
And one of the best parts about this smoothie is that it is delicioussssssss!
