Diet Soda Adds to Your Waist Size
A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society shows that increasing diet soda intake is directly linked to greater abdominal obesity in adults 65 years of age and older. These findings add to the concerns about the safety of chronic diet soda consumption, which may increase belly fat and contribute to greater risk of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases.

Here's the zinger: the increase in waist circumference among diet soda drinkers was almost triple that among non-users.

Bonnie: As I have said for decades, turning to artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose is not the answer. Stevia was NOT indicated adversely in this study and remains the most viable nonnutritive option.

Natural Relief for Acne Sufferers
Clearing Acne Is Multifactorial, but These New Products Do Wonders Naturally
Steve: Anyone who has had acne knows that he or she will go to the ends of the earth to find the correct formula for eliminating the condition.

The problem is that of the few prescription therapies that work, many have dangerous side effects. Even worse, dermatologists are finding that antibiotic therapy, which is a horrible option from a health-perspective, is becoming ineffective due to antibiotic-resistance. The majority of OTC acne remedies are not much better. They contain horrible chemicals, many with endocrine-disrupting properties.

So the question for me was, are there natural options that actually work? As you can imagine, many promote their products as "miracles," but few actually deliver.  It took me an inordinate amount of time to find a protocol that works.

Diet and Eating Style
This is not a new discovery. You cannot heal acne without addressing your diet. There are so many dietary triggers that a one-size-fits-all formula is not plausible. This must be done on an individualized basis. We can help with this.

Ulta Illumask
Light therapy is a safe, effective treatment for acne. The problem is that you have to go to a dermatologist for quality treatments and the cost is prohibitive. Ulta has made this treatment so easy that it can be incorporated into anyone's lifestyle.

Plexy Labs Nothing to Hide
What a story behind this product. Jordan Austin was just a 21-year-old looking for a way to treat his own acne. But this nursing student actually took action to create something that worked, rather than just hoping there was something out there that would work.

"Nothing to Hide" is the only acne treatment that uses beta-sitosterol, a natural compound that targets oil (sebum) production at the source. Excess sebum production is a hypersensitivity to dihydrotesteosterone, which creates inflammation. Nothing to Hide calms this process. The cream is economical and most importantly safe!

AOBiome
This company has truly brought the future of acne treatment to the present. As we have said recently, acne will be a thing of the past once we can test our skinbiome and balance our skin bacteria properly.

AOBiome has created a skin probiotic that helps destroy acne-causing bacteria in a positive, non-toxic way. Oh by the way, it can work as a replacement for antiperspirants as well!

Problem is, they have a three month waiting list for the product. So you had better get on the list ASAP.

We see it as the ideal alternative for harsh acne cleansers, as well as an antiperspirant replacement for those with mild to moderate body odor.

NOTE: We have tested these products with clients at our office. The results have been impressive. We know that acne is multifactorial, and even though we tried to address every factor with this protocol, it will not work for everyone.

If you cannot do the whole protocol, I would suggest starting with Plexy Labs Nothing to Hide.

We have NO financial interest in these products. We DO NOT sell them at our office. I am just so happy to bring you a protocol that is safe, natural, and effective!

Acne Reboot
If you would like individualized coaching about how to implement this protocol and myriad lifestyle factors that go into mitigating acne, we have created Acne Reboot. This is free for NCI Well Connect Members and $45 for everyone else. Contact us to book your coaching session either in-office or by phone.
Thirty years of serving your wellness needs. We appreciate your continued patronage and support.

Have a happy, healthy day,
