Just as in anything we put into our body, ingredients matter. OTC vitamins are hard to digest and contain fillers and other inflammatory ingredients. You’re lucky if you absorb any of the good stuff. (Hint: if your urine is neon yellow, you know you’ve got some expensive pee, and not absorbing your vitamins!) If you have never had access to pharmaceutical grade supplements before, your tummy will thank you! Shop Fullscript to know that you’re no longer peeing out all the supplements that you’re taking.
Over the counter meds like Ibuprofen and Tums wreak havoc on our gut. As we embark on a gut healing journey, it can be helpful to have herbal supplements for the relief of symptoms like headaches and acid reflux, without the harmful effects.

The ingredients of your protein shakes and superfoods matter just as much (maybe even more) than the quality of the food that you’re eating! Be sure to look at the ingredients of your shakes. Shop Organifi and get 20% off here.
Skincare and makeup purchased at the pharmacy or supermarket contain endocrine disrupting chemicals that are proven to cause negative long-term health effects and even lead to cancer. Be sure the things you’re putting on your skin will not harm your gut lining. Shop beautycounter to know that your skin and gut will thank you in the long run. Get 20% off your first order.

I am sure to unplug from technology by 9pm at the LATEST! In an ideal world, it’d be totally after sunset, but because screens are such a huge part of our lives, I HIGHLY encourage you to invest in a reputable brand of blue-blocking glasses.

I’m sure to wash my face with a gentle cleanser so that I’m not stripping my skin of it’s natural PH or messing with its microbiome too much. I follow that with a serum or overnight peel and I top it all off with a nighttime moisturizer.
After feeling unplugged from the day, I crawl into bed and enjoy a favorite fiction book. I prefer to read fiction books before bed in order to allow my brain to shift from the stresses and stories of MY day, and drop into the story of someone else.
