This is Rosacea. And today is a bad day. And it has been worse way worse than this, it can get bumpy like a bunch of little pimples. It’s hard to feel pretty or comfortable in your own skin when you look like a school girl that just played outside too long. Most people say it’s all about gut health and I have been trying all the things, eliminating gluten, eggs, night shades, diary (sugar is my downfall 😞 I have my slip ups!). But still I have flare ups, it’s hard to pinpoint why they happen. I started seeing a chiropractor and it’s been helping which leads me to, why are natural remedies so expensive it really makes me sad. I would recommend him in a hearty beat but at $75-100 a visit it’s nothing to sneeze at, and other natural therapies can be way more expensive. Which makes no freaking sense, my insurance wants me to do health screens and preventative medicine but they don’t want to help pay for it 😡. With my chiropractor we believe my immune system and digestive system need help so I am taking all the supplements, natural supplements. Only problem is as a night shift nurse it’s hard to stay on a regimen when some days you don’t know if it’s morning or night. My Rosacea is also another reason that lead me down this natural path, slowly getting rid of toxic products in our home from detergent, hand soap, face soap to toothpaste and makeup. It’s also led me to seeking naturopaths and using alternative therapies, I did acupuncture for the first time! I also started CBD use so cant wait to see if it helps! No matter your journey give yourself grace, look at your self in the mirror and repeat after me, I am beautiful I am strong and this will not defy me!
