What is the link between diet and acne?

Acne, just like other skin conditions, is a representation of what’s going on inside your body!

 

It’s important to look at all the factors that contribute to or exacerbate this condition, but for now let’s look at the first and foremost thing to address: diet. Most people know that sugar is a culprit for pimples – we’ve all woken up with one or five after indulging in chocolate a bit too much the day before. But what are the exact mechanisms behind this?

 

Insulin and Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1)

There is a major role between these hormones and SREBP-1-mediated sebaceous lipogenesis (technical term for acne formation). Enhanced IGF-1 signalling is directly correlated with diets high in glycaemic load and dairy.

Glycaemic load (GL): a calculation based on amount of carbohydrates in foods and the effect on blood sugar levels. For more info on GL, visit https://healthengine.com.au/info/glycaemic-load-gl

To put it simply,

High glycaemic load and dairy intake

Insulin, IGF-1

Androgens, mTOR

Increased sebum production, inflammation, keratinization

Acne

 

The milk from most dairy cows contain A1 casein, a protein which causes inflammation, disrupts the immune system and causes digestive discomfort in susceptible individuals. The damaging and inflammatory effects have a direct effect of worsening acne.

 

So is all dairy a problem?

Milk from goats and sheep contains A2 casein instead of A1, meaning it doesn’t have the same inflammatory action. Goats milk and yoghurt is a good option if you’re after an animal-based substitute to cow’s milk – and it has many other benefits such as helping the body absorb more nutrients from food (cow’s milk is the opposite), has prebiotics and is easier to digest. For plant-based milk alternatives, my favourites are home-made hemp milk, almond milk and cashew milk.

 

mTOR

mTOR is also worth mentioning – it’s an enzyme that regulates metabolism and is needed for the function of muscles, adipose tissue and the liver. Elevated levels of mTOR will stimulate keratin, sebum production and inflammation, thus contributing to acne.

Other conditions linked to high insulin, IGF-1, and mTOR are PCOS, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and cancer. Treating acne by improving your diet will in turn reduce your risk for these diseases later in life.

 

Androgens

This group of hormones have many important functions in both men and women. Increased androgens in women have a role in acne pathophysiology but are also indicated in other hormonal conditions such as PCOS. It’s best to check in with your GP or naturopath if you have any of the following symptoms as well as acne: irregular or absent periods, hirsutism (hair growth on the upper lip or chin), thinning of head on the head, weight gain or difficultly losing weight. We’ll talk more in-depth about excess androgens, PCOS and their treatments in another blog.

 

What dietary changes can I make?

 

Veggies, leafy greens, sweet potato, berries, avocado, nuts, seeds, eggs, fatty fish, green tea are your friends. Search up foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, selenium, antioxidants, vitamins A, E, C and Bs. Prebiotic and probiotic foods are also super beneficial for the skin.

 

This doesn’t mean giving up the sweets all together – make yummy raw desserts that contain good fats, protein and fibre. These components slow down the spike in blood sugar, and subsequently insulin, therefore reducing the glycaemic load.

 

Processed foods, white bread, cow’s milk, saturated fats, refined sugars, alcohol need to be reduced or avoided if you want to see results.

Artificial sweeteners are definitely not the answer, as research shows they still raise insulin levels, cause glucose intolerance, cause dysbiosis in the gut and lead to metabolic syndrome.

 

For phytonutrients and herbal medicine specific to enhancing and fast-forwarding the healing of acne:

 

Treating acne isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Making changes in the diet is just the first step in treating the problem!

 

We have to consider other factors to understand the whole picture, such as hormone levels, inflammation, intestinal permeability, gut function, the microbiome, and nutrient deficiencies.

 

It’s best to see a naturopath to determine which of these factors are at play and how to address them. Contact us on info@miss-vitality.com to book a consult or for more information.

Spring – A time to cleanse and let go!

Feeling the urge to get that Spring in your Step!

 

Spring is about transition, shifting and changing and the start of a new season, but also it brings about this air of wanting to cleanse and also wanting to clear out (Spring Clean). 

 

We may start to notice that, after the hibernation of winter, we come into spring and we feel the urge to start clearing things out. Spring cleaning, cleaning our bodies, cleaning out our pantries, our houses, our wardrobes or focussing on our health (mind and body). 

 

Spring can also bring about allergies and sneezing with all the pollen movement and as a health practitioner, I really start to notice that some clients are going through an immune challenge, allergies, bloating or a congestion challenge within their bodies. 

 

As we go through spring, we start to crave different foods, and being able to use those beautiful spring foods like your fresh veggies that are in season, and bring them into our bodies and homes and into our daily life.  Just like Spring Cleaning, Spring cleansing can be really helpful to lower congestion within your body and remove the bloating and the digestive disturbances that happen after the comfort zone of the winter hibernation (and the comfort foods that go with that). 

 

So get that spring in your step, notice the seasons changing and focus on the shift within us where we want to be able to increase our energy and get back into the exercise and outdoor stimulation as the weather shifts.

 

Cleansing takes you out of your comfort zone. It’s shifting and changing and helping your organs eliminative congestion or the toxicity that your body has been harbouring possibly by being more stagnant over winter. It’s absolutely necessary though to have that season and to draw inwards and be able to have that cleansing take place.

 

We need to support our body and the change that’s happening. So the best way to do that is definitely to gain some plant energy into your daily life; through juices; smoothies; fresh salads and fruit.

 

Miss Vitality has a spring detox and we have naturopath nutritionists that are able to support you to bring about this change to your unique state of health because everybody is different. 

 

And this is the thing that we can get bogged down in is that when we feel like we want to be able to shift that five kilos or shift to add digestive function into something that we know is more of a healthy space, it’s very individualized. Miss Vitality offers qualified practitioners to be able to support you. We look at your medications, your health status, and then we give you foods that are going to match that. 

 

So if you’re feeling a bit sluggish after winter and want to head towards getting more active in summer, feeling better in yourself, being able to lose those five kilos or just feel lighter and less congested and be more in tune with your body, then we can help you with developing a program to take your power back.

        

If you’re not sure of where to start, please get in touch with us. We are here. We’re ready to help you spring clean your body with the Miss Vitality Spring Detox or you can check our free energy training here

Sleeping Beauty – Why Sleep is important!

Want to know why people say get your ‘Beauty Sleep’?

 

Our skin is able to repair and restore itself at night. It makes new collagen when you sleep which prevents wrinkles and helps promote a glowing complexion. As well as the production of Melatonin which is known for its anti-aging properties.

As Deepak Chopra states, it’s one of the most overlooked keys to vibrant health.

Sleep plays a vital part in your overall health and is just as important as healthy eating and exercise.

Most of us know the impact poor sleep can have in our life. Weight gain, obesity, lack of concentration and productivity, memory loss, increased health risks (diabetes, heart disease, dementia and high blood pressure), reduced libido and can even be linked to mental health conditions like depression. Not to mention the impact on your immune system, leaving you susceptible to acute diseases such as cold or flu.

On the flip side, good quality sleep can reduce stress, improve your immune function, repair your bodies cells and tissues, maximise your performance, and enhance memory function. As well as, reduce sugar cravings and boost your mood

In our modern world, there are many things that can interfere with a good night’s sleep, including the use of technology which can interfere with our body’s biological sleep patterns. Sleep deprivation can result in a weakened immune system and cause chronic inflammation, which is linked to many diseases

And sometimes even if you get those 8 hours a night you may wake up still sleepy and groggy. This can be an indication that you need to review your lifestyle and sleep rhythms and find out if you’re getting the recommended hours of deep sleep each night.

The National Sleep Foundation guidelines recommend between 7-9  hours sleep a night for adults. It’s not just about quantity but also about quality so creating a good sleep routine can help you get quality sleep.

Some healthy sleep tips to help to create a good sleep routine:

  • Eat dinner earlier rather than later and keep it light (no midnight munchies!)
  • Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake, try a clean tea
  • Take a warm bath or shower to relax
  • Listen to relaxing music
  • Disengage from electronics by a certain time at night or at least half an hour before bed
  • Meditation
  • Exercise (even a simple walk can help)
  • Sleep in comfy sheets (high thread count for softness on the skin) and a good mattress.
  • Maintain a similar sleep routine and go to bed at the same time each day.

Support your sleep and restore your skin, with an Elixir, Marine Collagen with Zinc and Magnesium.

The TruthBomb on unhealthiness nobody wants to speak of!

Low energy & lack the feeling of balance and vitality…. does this sound like a familiar conversation?
 
A lot of people are only now just beginning to see that they reside in unhealthiness and imbalance and are open to risk of ongoing illness, health risks and fatigue. Nutrition, the microbiome, stress, sleep and external factors can affect your skin health and result in acne, eczema, ageing and other skin conditions.
 
This is often ignored or we become frustrated with treating it and not arriving with the GLOW everyone seems to be talking about like the Holy Grail! The result here of taking no action is a cascade of the imbalance internalising further soon to manifest and come out in another part of the body and the illness can worsen. Often this congestion in the skin can relate to high cortisol and the effects of something much more going on in the body than eating too much sugar, while this can play a role there are other barriers to reaching the Glow we seek.
 
Fatigue and stress are a common syndrome we deal with and ignored can lead to exhaustion and anxiety, ignored yet we are told a lot of nonsense that involves feeding you the wrong information and sending you on literally a wild goose chase to find the Holy grail for Glowing Skin and a Vital Body.
 
Wild Goose chase? Sound familiar? It did to me and I was completely over it and if I did make that line in the sand and stop it, my outside world would have been a disaster zone. The whole thing came down to this…
 
It’s the culmination of many micro-actions and macro actions that build up an ecosystem in and around you that creates results.
 
You don’t just do anything by doing it once… the gym, the musical instrument, the marriage, the marathon training. No you do it and do it and practice and then stretch yourself and have someone there like a coach or a teacher, someone who holds you accountable then you go to the next level, you dig deeper, you train longer, you push harder and go harder than you ever have before. Then you also stop listening to TRASH, that people tell you about health when they don’t have any idea about real science or experience. You stop following the flash in the pan new diet trick or sexy juice. You go within and you find your authentic radar for the real deal and get led by someone who knows what they are talking about. And you stop listening to the excuses that keep us stuck and have someone you trust to do that too.
 
You eliminate these problems in health and you soar! And you find boundless energy, you see the energy in your body as a foundation for all success and achieving connection to your body and yourself, you live life instead of surviving it.
 
It’s a framework to get across this gap and its bridged with years of proven experience in this field and with energy, hormones and science of living the way we can Thrive.
 
Heres the first bit… A great leap… a chance to really face this stuff and this time not alone while your hating on yourself after looking in the mirror. No beautiful, this time you can take the step with the knowing that someone has got you because you’re committed to doing what it takes because you know deep inside you damn want something more and you are going to get it! Yes please.
 
Im happy to be that someone if it feels like you’re drawn to make a shift now, and really commit to this change.

Inflammation & Natural Solutions: Focus on Curcumin

Inflammation is usually caused by tissue injury. Pain, redness, heat, swelling or the loss of motion, are symptoms of inflammation. In the skin we see Inflammation in such conditions as Rosacea, Acne and Psoriasis and Eczema.

 

As a result of inflammation, fluid may accumulate in specific parts causing swelling,  and in the body cause compression of nerves and thus creating excruciating pain. Inflammation is the skin & body’s protective response to tissue injury, pain or to an immune challenge and chronic. Acute Inflammation occurs when the skin or body is alarmed by harmful stimuli (i.e. injury or illness). Chronic inflammation becomes progressively worse over a period of time. The tissue at the site of the inflammation is in the process of being destroyed while trying to heal at the same time.

Research suggests that Vitamin D deficiency may contribute to the development of inflammation. However, there are several other factors, which may be viewed as triggers for inflammation.

The following are examples:

  • Food Allergies: Gluten and Casein promote inflammation in the gut. Foods such as corn, soy, safflower oil, sunflower oil, strawberries, egg, cheese, peanuts and sugar may be responsible for instigating inflammation within the digestive system.
  • Toxic chemicals/fumes that are absorbed through the nose membrane and skin reached bloodstream and caused painful conditions within the body.
  • Polluted Water
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (joint pains)
  • Autoimmune Diseases (Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus)
  • Digestive problems  (support proper digestion with herbs & probiotics)
  • Stress (emotional/physical)
  • Improper posture
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Obesity may cause inflammation in swollen areas
  • Hormonal imbalance (women in menopause which develop osteoporosis)
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Allergy to plastics or latex
  • Inadequate nutrition: foods high in sugar, processed or fatty foods aggravate inflamed conditions.

Lifestyle changes which may inhibit Inflammation:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Engage in yoga, meditation and swimming for stress relief
  • Consume heart-healthy foods (Omega-3’s)
  • Acupressure
  • Therapeutic massages with olive oil/essential oils
  • Rest
  • Hot/cold compresses
  • Hydrotherapy

Turmeric and natural solutions for treating Inflammation

There are several conventional therapies, which may alleviate the symptoms and severity of chronic inflammation. Alternative therapies seem to provide the least side effects and may yield long-term benefits.

Curcumin is an active ingredient found in Turmeric and is the best known of the curcuminoids. Currently, Curcumin is one of the most highly researched natural substances. Studies have found that curcumin is effective in reducing inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Curcumin prevents pain flare-ups and works as an NSAID (pain reliever) but without adverse side effects. Curcumin therapy minimizes joint swelling, stiffness, promotes flexibility and may help to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. 

Curcumin has the potential to reverse chronic inflammatory symptoms, thus providing relief from degenerative diseases. Curcumin is also a powerful antioxidant. Recent and promising animal studies suggested that curcumin has anti-cancer and neuroprotective properties.

Unfortunately, curcumin from dietary turmeric is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Dietary fat and black pepper can enhance absorption. To ensure a therapeutic dose is achieved, good quality supplements will be in a form that is easily absorbed like a complex of Curcumins to improve absorption.

Besides curcumin, there are a number of other natural substances, which can also be used to help ease inflammation. Fish oil, Vitamin C and green superfoods with anti-inflammatory reds are noteworthy:

 

 

Fish Oil: Treats ailments associated with ageing. Eases joint pain and swelling. May prevent nerve damage in patients with diabetes and decrease inflammation associated with nerve disorders. Along with protecting the skin and cellular membranes from oxidative stress, this oil is essential for lowering the ration of omega 6’s in the diet which are often plentiful.

It is a good practice to include supplements such as Vitamin C and Curcumin when trying to maintain an anti-inflammatory regiment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wellness for your children – the natural way

You don’t need to spend a ton of money and time to boost your child’s health. Instead, you can make small lifestyle choices to improve your child’s immune functioning, development and overall well-being without putting a dent in your wallet. 3 quick and easy way to do so are:


1. Catch some rays
Vitamin D is vital for your child’s healthy bone and immune system development, but many kids (and adults) border on vitamin D deficiency. Just 10 to 15 minutes of direct sunlight per day will give your child all the vitamin D they needs. Encourage sun exposure before 10a.m. or after 4p.m. to minimize the risk of sun damage.


2. Plant a garden
Your kids benefit in two ways when your family plants a garden: They get dirty, and they learn to love veggies. Believe it or not, children need to interact with dirt, soil and dust to build a healthy immune system for life, so it’s actually good for them to get dirty in a garden. Also, kids are more likely to enjoy fresh veggies if they’ve participated in planting and harvesting the produce.


3. Serve more fruits, vegetables and beans
Carrots, green beans, oranges, strawberries: They all contain such immunity-boosting phytonutrients as vitamin C and carotenoids. Phytonutrients may increase the body’s production of infection-fighting white blood cells and interferon, an antibody that coats cell surfaces, blocking out viruses. Studies show that a diet rich in phytonutrients can also protect against such chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease in adulthood. Try to get your child to eat five servings of fruits and veggies a day. Also consider replacing meat with beans and rice a few times a week, as the beans contain healthy protein as well as a full range of minerals that are often missing from diets.

5 simple ways to relieve stress

Stress and anxiety are common experiences for most people. In fact, 70% of adults say they feel stress or anxiety daily that can seriously impact their functionality and ability to carry out their daily tasks. Here are a few ways to relieve stress and anxiety that you can easily implement into your daily routine

  1. Exercise
    Exercise is one of the most important things you can do to beat stress. It might seem contradictory, but putting physical stress on your body through exercise can help relieve mental stress, and the benefits are strongest when you exercise regularly. People who exercise regularly are less likely to experience anxiety than those who don’t exercise. Try to find an activity you enjoy, such as walking, dancing, rock climbing or yoga. Activities that use repetitive movements of large muscle groups, such as walking or jogging, can be particularly stress relieving.
  2. Reduce your caffeine intake
    Caffeine is a stimulant found in coffee, tea, chocolate and energy drinks. High doses can increase anxiety. People have different thresholds for how much caffeine they can tolerate. If you notice that caffeine makes you jittery or anxious, consider cutting back.Although many studies show that coffee can be healthy in moderation, it’s not for everyone. In general, five or fewer cups per day is considered a moderate amount.
  3. Spend time with friends and family
    Social support from friends and family can help you get through stressful times. Being part of a friend network gives you a sense of belonging and self-worth, which can help you in tough times. One study found that for women, in particular, spending time with friends and children helps release oxytocin, a natural stress reliever. This effect is called “tend and befriend,” and is the opposite of the fight-or-flight response. Furthermore, both men and women benefit from friendship. Another study found that men and women with the fewest social connections were more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety.
  4. Learn to say no
    Not all stressors are within your control, but some are. Take control over the parts of your life that you can change and are causing you stress. One way to do this may be to say “no” more often. This is especially true if you find yourself taking on more than you can handle, as juggling many responsibilities can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Being selective about what you take on — and saying no to what will unnecessarily add to your load — can be a good start to controlling your stress levels.
  • Listen to soothing music
    Listening to music can have a very relaxing effect on the body. Slow-paced instrumental music can induce the relaxation response by helping lower blood pressure and heart rate, as well as stress hormones. Some types of classical, Celtic, Native American and Indian music can be particularly soothing, but simply listening to the music you enjoy is effective too. Nature sounds can also be very calming. This is why they’re often incorporated into relaxation and meditation music.

There are many things you can implement to attempt to reduce stress and anxiety if you find these few simple tips aren’t working for you, but they are a great start to put you on the right track for a less stressed mindset!

Why is it worth adding meditation to your beauty program?

Beauty it is not only what you see, but also what you radiate when you associate with others. It comes from inside you and that is what makes other people attracted to being around you and  radiate towards you and your energy. A simple key to reach the kind of beauty described is not hiding in anti- age or beauty creams. You have to connect with the real you. Your emotions and your thoughts can be clearly pictured on your face and if these are not positive, then your true beauty will not be able to shine through.

Stress and anxiety are part of all people’s lives and they are an obstacle to beauty in general. Stress and anxiety can be a destroyer of skin and a creator of lines and wrinkles on the skin. They can affect people by turning their skin dry and pale and also leading to bad dietary habits. So, don’t let it destroy you, eliminate it first!

What should you do?

You should be concentrated on your goal and your beauty program, which does not include stress, anxiety and wrinkles. All you have to do is to reduce negative thoughts and emotions which does sound hard, but can be managed. Meditation is the perfect way to achieve that and it can be easily added into your daily routine.

Meditation rules:

1. Wear comfortable clothes

2. Sit upright and comfortable

3. Relax, this is your moment
First of all, it would be preferable to meditate every morning when you wake up. Start by closing your eyes and breathe. Inhaling from nose, exhaling from mouth. Focus on your breath and make it deeper and slower. Think of your problems and all the things that have an influence on you and look at them from distance. You can solve them all when you are not in them. You are not a part of them anymore. Just focus on your breath. Do not pay attention to any thought coming. Acknowledge it and keep on breathing. Now you inhale positivity slowly and exhale your negativity sharply. Aim to do that for about 10 minutes every day and with practice it will become easier day by day. The results of meditation will make you wonder why you didn’t start it earlier! A happier and more energetic day with very low stress and anxiety levels will pay you back for those 10 minutes!

Looking after your skin and body with Miss Vitality – Part III

We complete our discussion on our fabulous new Miss Vitality range.

In Part II of these series of blogs on Miss Vitality we continued our discussion and talked about Elevate, CoEnzyme Q10 and Illumination Formula.

We finish our series with the final three products in the range, which focus on following concerns:

Rosacea
Ageing
Hormonal imbalances
Dermatitis
Eczema
Compromised skin needing healing and repairing
Acne Prone Skin

 

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is the anti-ageing queen and scientifically developed to slow down the ageing process by protecting DNA and Telomeres. Telomeres are the caps at the end of each DNA strand that protect chromosomes. Without telomeres, the DNA strands become damaged and can’t do their job, therefore, resulting in ageing and inflammation.

Resveratrol is neuroprotective, cardioprotective and can also slow down the progression of Alzheimers.

This product is a potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory derived from the roots of Japanese Knotwood, one of the richest sources of Resveratrol. Many good quality skin care products contain Resveratrol, by taking this internally and externally you will be achieving optimum results in age prevention.

Curcumin Forte

Not just a cooking spice! Curcumin Forte is an anti-inflammatory buster! It contains the most potent part of the Turmeric plant which reduces inflammation in the body and skin.

It is suitable for everyone, especially people with arthritis or those who suffer from any inflammatory pain. Used together with Miss Vitality Good Oil, Curcumin Forte will inhibit pro-inflammatory markers.

Curcumin Forte can be a herbal alternative for anti-inflammatory painkillers.

Curcmeroids, which is the key ingredient, also balances sebum (oil) production in acne-prone skin and helps reduce inflammation for those who experience rosacea. It is excellent in detoxifying the body of lead, cadmium, and mercury.

Good Oil

This high potency Omega fish oil is sourced from small fish only such as sardines, anchovies, and whitebait which are less exposed to heavy metals.

Good Oil increases cellular elasticity and moisture to relieve symptoms of impaired and barrier-compromised skin. The essential fatty acids are beneficial in relieving dry, itchy skin conditions such as dandruff and dermatitis. It is also beneficial in eliminating folliculitis as this condition can indicate that the body lacks Omega 3.

The essential fatty acids in Good Oil help to protect and strengthen nerve cells and membranes, balance hormones and improve gut health.

Good Oil brings you all the benefits of a high quality fish oil without the fishy aftertaste.

In some cases when treating a health/skin condition or concern, it may be necessary to start with the highest recommended daily dosage until you see the required results. It could take 1 or two bottles for this to be achieved. Then continue on minimal dosage for maintenance.

Each product in the Miss Vitality range compliments each other. Therefore it is safe and effective to use them all together if you wish.

Please refer to our Shop By Concern categories under our Miss Vitality pages to see what products suit you best.
