Expanding your full health consciousness-Therapeutic Skin Coach

I really thought that by the time I was going to be writing this post today that I would have some great personal news to excitedly share. And yet another month goes by where I’m convinced that I’ve done everything possible to become pregnant and sure enough I discover that I’m not. This month felt so different though. I decided to make some major shifts in my self-care, gave up having a glass or two of wine, honored each phase of my cycle more consciously than before, eliminated excess herbs and replaced them with prenatal formulas. I felt pregnant, I looked up potential due dates and started crafting my summer plans accordingly. This might feel a bit preemptive, but I felt that different that I took every little sign as seriously as I could. As you can imagine, it’s a bit heartbreaking to get reminded once again that your body’s signaling was off. Or maybe I was just so convinced that I was doing everything right that I created a fun narrative in my mind that when you follow a specific formula, you can get the expected end result. That’s when it hit me. I have spent my entire career educating clients that it’s not that simple, yet I still couldn’t really comprehend it for my own ability to conceive. The parallel inspired me to share my story so it can hopefully inspire you when it seems like you’ve done everything for your skin but the result is still not what you expected.

Now as many of you know, I’ve been wanting to be a mom for as long as I can remember. It’s on my non-negotiable list of things to accomplish in my life because every day I work hard so that I could provide for my future family and I work on myself more and more so that I can guide my future children into discovering how to love themselves fully. I hear both ends of the spectrum in feedback as well; “You’re too young to have kids”, well, not where I’m from and what my heart tells me. And “children are really expensive and it’s an endless money pit”, okay – thanks, captain obvious. The worst is “when you stop trying, it’ll happen” which to me doesn’t make sense other because I’ve actively tried to not get pregnant for half my life pretty easily so I am going to consciously try by creating mindful habits and educate myself as much as I can.

It doesn’t help that when I get my period 4 days late right before I have to put on my facialist Hayley face and just move on. The same day I got the news that I wasn’t pregnant (I was waiting until day 7 of a missed period to take a test), I ended up giving a facial to one of my friends, Dr. Patti Kim. Patti and I have known each other for about a year now and have such aligning philosophies in health. We decided to trade our services in order to support each other and I would never have thought that I could teach someone who’s a naturopath something different about their skin and health. But I did. My approach is based on intuitive care where the lens of health will be shifted according to what your skin is communicating with me. I realized that if I was able to open up apart of a very elevated and educated individual’s mind on how to approach their skin health differently, perhaps there is more than I can learn on conscious fertility and conception.
