Before I was a nutritionist, I was a just a girl in my late twenties, with an addiction to popping my backne. I had a horrible diet, crazy mood swings, and skin that I would call “clear enough”, thanks to the birth control I had been on for over a decade.
In 2011 I jumped on the Paleo diet train. I began focusing on healthy whole foods, cut out dairy and gluten, and my acne on my chest and back resolved.
Plus the skin on my face seemed to radiate. I remember sitting on the patio one August day and a friend of mine asked me what I was doing because my skin looked amazing!
Over time as I was feeling amazing, and getting more and more compliments on my skin, I couldn’t help but wonder if my birth control was still necessary?
I decided to take the leap and ditch the pill.
It was a terrifying decision to make, and all the fears that drove me to the pill in the first place came rushing back.
But I held true to my choice because in the end I knew that the pill was just a bandaid.
And guess what?
It came back.
I was pissed. I was devastated. But I was also empowered.
At the time I was in nutrition school, and the info I was learning was literally blowing my mind.
I knew that food had the power to nourish and heal the body, but being in school I was learning all the connections between the body, food, supplements, the mind, the environment, and how everything can play together holistically to restore balance – not just cover up symptoms!
This is when I realized that my acne, was my body’s way of telling me that there was a bigger underlying imbalance going on in my body.
Over the course of my time at school, I was able to make tweaks to my diet, supplements, and the environmental factors at play, and my acne went away.
And this is what I want for you too!
That’s why I’ve put together my Bold. Bare. Beautiful: Holistic Acne Program. This in-depth program helps you take the guesswork out of what it takes to restore balance to your body to resolve your annoying acne once and for all.
