Hi just thought I’d share some more info that I have found. Thanks to everyone who has left comments! I learning about making my own skincare products at the moment. I have bought some of the natural stuff and everything seems fine enough but a little bland. For example I like Tesco’s Bnatural range but its quite plain. Some of the paraben-free stuff costs a fortune too. I was intrigued by an article that I read about Jo Fairley who wrote the Beauty Bible which I love. She has now written a book packed with recipes which sound really interesting. Here is the article that I found
Unfortunately the writer doesnt say what she thought of the stuff that she made. But I am really intrigued! Has anyone else tried this approach? Any tips?
On the candida side of things I thought I ought to explan further that my naturopath uses a combination of homeopathy, kineseology, acupunture and reflexology. The first two are used to diagnose the cause of problems. Its very impressive! But he also has medical knowledge which is essential. My candida is now ‘low’ and the tests confirmed this but he stressed that the conditions within my body would mean that if I eat anything which will need the candida then it will immediately flourish. He is right! I have eaten tiny quantities of ‘bad’ food and straight away my symptoms are back (wind, bloating etc). So I am sticking to the diet while trying to balance my hormones. Interestingly Dr Mercola believes that to balance estrogen and progesterone you need to first balance the adrenal glands. This can be done by reducing stress and having early nights. Whoops! I think he is right as I went for a whole year (on the pill) yet Candida-free and I ate anything I wanted. But I was very relaxed, went to meditation classes and I was in bed by 10pm each night so I think that all helped. I am trying to do the same again (failed miserably this week though). Still its 9.45pm so I’m off to bed!
Good night, Katie x
