Do you have brittle slow growing hair, dull patchy skin, or fragile brittle nails that break all the time?  Do you ever wonder why this happens to you but not others?  Are you tired of expensive as seen on TV products?  If you answered yes to any of these keep reading!!

There is hope! The one thing that all of these issues have in common is that they are secondary health characteristics , what that means is that your body doesn’t waste energy or nutrients on these until the basic needs are met.   So what are your bodies basic needs?

Secret number 1 is Hydration. In order to have healthy glowing skin you need to drink half your body weight in ounces of water everyday.

Secret number 2 is essential nutrients.  Essential nutrients are required to express healthy skin, hair, and nails and can not be made by the body they must be consumed or eaten.  The essential nutrients include Omega 3 fatty acids (specifically EPA and DHA), Vitamin D3(ideally from lanolin), Probiotic (yogurt doesn’t count), and a whole food, organic, non synthetic multivitamin (bridges the gap of what we eat and what we need)

Secret number 3 is Anti inflammatory diet. The standard american diet is full of inflammatory foods that lead to a lot of the common skin issues we see like those red patches on the back of your arms, acne, and eczema.  Adding fruits, veggies, raw nuts and seeds, and free range meats and avoiding dairy and grains will help decrease your inflammation and help you express more beautiful hair skin and nails.
