12 Sep Aloe Vera, the medicinal gut healer internally and externally.

Aloe Vera is (as you know) a plant, it’s resilient, great for sunburns but also amazing for gut health and skin care!! Since I struggled with acne and skin scarring aloe has always been a medicinal staple for me both internally and externally… but you may not know how good it is for your gut and digestion so let me divulge. If you follow me on instagram (@welcomingwellness) you will know I recently moved and have been posting some of my gardening antics. I Have not only been freaking out (in a good way) over the added space but also freaking out about the fact that I have a small patch of lawn to ground myself on daily… eeeek so exciting because I have been a city slicker for close to a decade. Since moving from the city I realised I had seriously neglected my aloe vera plant and it was looking a bit sad and trying to escape from the pot… literally. So it was time to get my hands dirty and do some gardening, find a bigger pot for my aloe babies. There are 2 things you should know with aloe vera… it’s hard to kill and it should...

25 Apr 3 Gut Destroying Pantry Items and what to use instead

I get it, overload of information haha. As you can see I am just a little passionate about eliminating gut destroying foods.

28 Mar Gut Health 101 + Why You Should Care

What does the whole gut health thing actually mean? I know it can be confusing because it seems like there is a new superfood or a new diet each week that is the most amazing health hack… then you find out a week or month later that it was all just a load of BS and there was just a bit of hype around it, take kale for example… about a year ago if you mentioned you eat a healthy diet or are interested in your health it was ALLLLLL about the kale. (To be brutally honest, I’m not a big fan of kale unless its cooked and wilted… can’t stand it raw or in salads YUCK!! But I have managed to find a way to consume it and it’s not as often as you might think)   I am not sure if you have noticed but there is a lot of talk and hype around gut health lately and I really hope it doesn’t start to cheapen the importance of gut health or bring out the haters. So I want to share a little about why it’s so important. The thing with gut health that no one really talks about is the fact that...
