This mother of 3 started putting on weight 6 months ago. She had an acne problem and was on antibiotics to control her condition.
Her typical daily diet consist of:
Breakfast - smoothie/yogurt/fruits.
Lunch - ban mian/ramen/economic rice.
Snack - bubble tea/matcha latte
Dinner - Cantonese soup/Chinese food/pasta
The problem is that her diet is too acidic. Too much dairy and bubble tea, and lacking vegetables and antioxidants.
Some of us are aware that the side effects of antibiotics include allergic reactions like shortness of breath, hives, swelling of lips, face, or tongue, fainting spells and rash. Taking antibiotics too often or for the wrong reasons can change the bacteria so much that the antibiotics no longer work against them. This is called bacterial resistance or antibiotic resistance.
She went on a 21 day natural detox with good herbs and a healthy diet, and her skin recovered. She also lost a level of visceral fat and lost some weight. Her friends asked how she managed to clear her skin? She was happy to share that she did a detox program. She said that prior to coming to Body Inc., she did not know there is natural therapy available for acne.
She had clear skin for a few months until recently, with the thought of "enhancing" her glow, she went for some light therapy but came back with flare ups. Our health coach met her, and told her not to damage her skin again.
First, do no harm.
To have a clear, smooth glowing complexion, it is best to nourish from within. When you have good nutrients and good circulation that allow these nutrients to reach the skin, your skin will glow.
There is no oily or dry skin type. There is only one type of skin—normal skin! If your skin is oily or dry, it is either because you have imbalanced hormones internally, or too much toxins and lack of nutrients in your system.
Always deal with the digestive system first. Heal your gut! Change your diet and lifestyle.
