BLOGGED: Does stress affect your skin? I spoke to @fusionhealth’s Naturopath Erika Morvay all about it + have popped up our little chat on CBT. Incls. foods to eat, herbal supplements/remedies to take (but if all else fails I’m pretty sure booking a one way ticket to an Ashram to meditate your stress/skin woes away could work just as well...although it’s a little more drastic 🙏🏽😆).

i hate telling ppl I don't wear makeup bc then they say "ur lucky, u don't need to!" like biTcH who the FUCK says YOU need to???? It's a social construct formed by money hungry corporations to feed on ppls doubts and gain big ass greedy ass $$$$. Ain't nobody gotta do SHIT they don't want to!!! I just rlly very much so hate it when ppl say that to me!!!!! Pls realize, u don't need to if u don't want to!!!!! Don't feel pressured!!!!!! It gets me so upset !!!! Sigh. That's all.
Living a life without comparison in an Instagram world is impossible. This is true, if Instagram is your world. People use Instagram (and all social media platforms for that matter) as a way to show off all of the awesome things that are happening in their lives. And that is great! But when those amazing things stop happening, they feel the need to pretend that they didn't. This results in comparison of your life- with all its beautiful flaws, to the perfect lives of the Instagram profiles of your friends, family members, and idols.
So what can you do if you start obsessing over your profile? Post your real thoughts. Break the cycle. Post your challenges and then post why you love those challenges. What are they teaching you? How are you growing from your experiences? What areas can you ask for help with because of these struggles? It's okay to not live a perfect life. And it's okay for the people you keep closest to see that. Nervous about someone responding negatively? That's a whole topic in itself that I will discuss later.
As much as i dreaded going to the E.R on Friday, I'm relieved I did. I didn't get all the answers but It sure did relieve lots of worries, especially when your terrified of everything being cancer. Well Friday am I went in to go over my X-ray taken Thursday with my Dr and it was still showing the right middle lobe hazziness. I had been on antibiotics for 8 days already to treat "walking pneumonia" & I felt like it was only getting worse. Tight chest, shortness of breath, & side pain. The next step would be to see a plumonolist to see what's is going on but the soonest appt is November 10!So my Dr and I decided we shouldn't wait & didn't want to take the chance either. So she ordered me to go to the ER. I was being very hesitant at first especially with it being my daughters Field day. They were super excited about it & were expecting me there. I did stop by the school but was only able to tell my youngest. She cried, I cried, it sucked! & what sucked even more was that I was unable to let my eldest daughter know. I cried because My heart broke knowing that she would be looking and waiting for me. As soon as she got home I spoke to her & she was sad but we both understood that my health is important. Just when I was free'd of missing these moments... Well On the way to the ER all I could think about was how I didn't want to be admitted or have to face the reality of this being something serious! When we arrived they did blood work and EKG. The Dr came in & we went over my medical history & what may be causing this. Pneumonia, Pulmonary Embolism, Metastasis. They performed the Mac Daddy of them all, 3D CT Scan with contrast! It was crazy cause right before the inserted the contrast they told me I would feel warm and then I will feel like I'm peeing on myself but I not too worry cause Im not. That's was crazy cause they weren't lying! Who else knows what I'm talking about? Ok well anyways, so I completed the scan & they said we would have the results in 30 min. 30 min of torture! Finally the Dr. approaches the door & we scared! Right away he says good news!!! Woooo! CT clear! Nothing at all! Thank you Jesus, Jehovah, Mary & Joesph! & all of you for all the prayers!
RutaVaLa is one of the newest oils to be released in Canada! I am so excited! I know I'm not the only one whose been waiting for this bottle of goodness to come back in stock in the US! I was lucky to get it through a promo a few months ago and have been very selective when I use it. I like to pull it out when I really need the heavy duty stuff.
Ruta oil is very relaxing to the body and mind and also rebalances the energy levels of the body. When mixed with valerian and lavender, both of which are well known for their sedative properties, this blend becomes both relaxing and revitalizing to the entire body, while calming stressed nerves and helping you to sleep better 🙌🏼
🌿 Ruta graveolens was used historically for nervous afflictions and hysterics. Aromatically, it is very relaxing and increases drowsiness.
🌿 Valerian has a powerful sedative effect. It may help minimize the shock, and the stress that accompanies traumatic situations.
🌿 Lavender is an oil that has traditionally been known to balance the body and to work wherever there is a need. It helps to relieve sore muscles, eases tension and stress, and promotes general healing.
Who else will be stocking up on this oil? 🙌🏼
