Probiotics and Hair Growth

I must be honest and say that I have been through the most when it comes to dealing with an unhealthy gut.  If my diet is not as it should be, it surely reflects and makes me miserable. I now incorporate natural ways to support my gut health and give natural relief.

Why is gut health important?

Our digestive tract plays a major role in the detoxing and immunity of the body. If your gut health is not good, other complications may arise like constipation, bloating, cramping, fatigue and decrease in mental clarity.

If there is an imbalance in the immune system of the body, this makes us vulnerable to the many toxins we come into contact with daily. Diseases can begin to manifest in the body.

What does probiotics have to do with hair growth?

Our gut consists of good bacteria and bad. We experience problems when there is an imbalance and hair loss can be a result. If the gut is healthy, the blood in our body will be cleaner and this blood nourishes our hair follicles.


Full course antibiotics can kill the good and bad bacteria in your gut. If you are prescribed antibiotics, you can incorporate probiotics into your diet to support a healthy gut. It can take up to a year for our gut to return to good health without taking probiotics, so it is a plus to support our health now. Toxins accumulate in our gut and over time you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, nausea and most of all, for me, an alteration of mental clarity.
Hair loss is largely influenced by your diet, lifestyle, and environment. Hair follicles that are subjected to malnutrition, inflammation, and environmental pollutants cannot sustain hair growth activity and, as a result, die off.

Probiotics encourage healthy flora in the gut and this improves health. Your body will be able to ward off toxins and other conditions that could result in hair loss. Probiotics can increase hair growth and thicken hair. They also have a positive effect on your blood pH levels, thereby resulting in a healthy shine.


Which probiotic is best?

The most commonly used probiotic in modern studies is lactobacillus. When choosing a probiotic supplement, make sure that is the primary strain. You can consume probiotics by supplementing with capsules, consuming foods with live cultures such as yogurt and drinking probiotic drinks.

We should take preventative measures internally to support healthy growing hair!

Detoxing and Hair Growth

Detoxing and Hair Growth

giphy (5)

Does the health of your body have anything to do with your hair health? You take care of your hair by applying products to it, but you must keep in mind that your hair grows from follicles. Are your follicles in good health? Are you drinking enough water and eating a proper diet to support a healthy balanced body?

Detoxing is important for supporting the elimination of toxins in your body. We encounter so many toxins a day and consume them in some of our food. If you do not encourage detoxification, this leaves room for diseases to manifest in the body.




Your hair grows from your hair follicles. Your follicles must be in good health just like every other part of your body to function at it’s best. If there are complications within your body systems, this can alter your hair growth. For example, there are people who have high blood pressure. They take a prescription medication and this medication can alter the growth pattern of the hair. Certain high blood pressure medications can cause hair loss.



You can detox your scalp and hair using healing clays and other natural remedy concoctions, but you also need to detox your inner. We must always focus on our bodies as a whole. If we only focus on one thing (the symptom) then we are risking altering the proper functioning of other body systems.

Do you see how this all works full circle? When you are balanced, your body can function and heal itself properly and you will not be the breeding ground for all types of diseases.

Many women are dealing with the struggle of losing belly fat. Toxins are present within this stubborn fat and that is why it is so difficult to get rid of it! If we detox our bodies, we are encouraging the balancing of the body therefor our bodies can do what it can naturally do- heal!


For an internal detox you can go on some cleanses of your choice.  You can detox through juicing as well as other cleanses that you can purchase at herbal, wholefoods and other health supporting related stores.

Check out these store options-

Starwest Botanicals

Arbonne 7 Day Botanical Based Cleanse

These are just to name a few. I am very selective about herbal and other natural/organic  choices that are sold and I trust these businesses therefore I am sharing them with you! Quality is always important and this does not change when it comes to the products that you use inner or outer for your body.

The Benefits of Hair Growth Smoothies


Hair Growth Smoothies

Can drinking smoothies really help your hair to grow?

Drinking smoothies is a great way to get nutrients into your body. Too often we focus our attention on the next best product for our hair. It can be easy to forget that our inner health plays a major role in the health of our hair. Hair grows from follicles in our scalp, so it is important that we maintain a healthy scalp.

I love making smoothies as it is the most convenient way for me to eat a complete meal sometimes. I experiment with different fruits, leafy greens and seeds to prepare tasty blends. I do not need a really tasty smoothie, however, my children and husband will not consume it if I do not make it yummy.

How can drinking a smoothie help my hair to grow?

When you consume nourishing foods, your body can function at it’s best. Improper functioning of the body can cause complications. Inner problems can influence our outer. When there is imbalance in the body, this can influence the hair growth process. Smoothies are an easy way to give your body the nutrients that it needs.

Natural Body Care Products

If you are anything like me, it can sometimes be a hassle to sit down and enjoy a meal with a busy schedule. I am working on time management so that I can sit down and enjoy my meals throughout the day. Until I get this together, smoothies are to my rescue.

For your smoothie to be a meal replacement you would need to make sure it consists of sufficient protein. Protein is an important building block for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood. Almost 80% of human’s hair is made up of protein. It is important for hair growth.

Check out these awesome protein powders.

Spinach and kale are great protein sources. They are always at the base of my smoothies. I choose one or the other. The fruits that I have added to my blend so far are blueberries, strawberries, bananas, mangoes, pineapple and apples. I also add flax seeds or chia seeds, coconut water or almond milk.

As you begin to make your own smoothies, you will find your rhythm and create your own blends.

I Am Now an Arbonne Independent Consultant

I have great news to share! I am now an Arbonne Independent Consultant! I was introduced to this product line recently by a personal trainer and Arbonne Consultant. I wanted to learn more about it so I began to research, ask questions and  I attended a nutrition and makeup event. Almost immediately I was drawn to the detox selections and protein powders. I love making smoothies with protein. Yummy and healthy! I am all about detoxing and caring for the body inside and out, so I was excited to learn more about the products.


Arbonne is a chemical free product line that has products for nutrition, bath and body, skin care and makeup. I am excited to be a part of Arbonne as I share with everyone the importance of caring for our health.

Good health plays a major role in the growth of our hair. As I work with individuals daily, I can see how their lifestyle choices are reflecting in their hair growth. It is important that we take care of our outer but we must not forget to take care of our inner. Our bodies are working daily to heal themselves and maintain balance so that they can function properly. It can be challenging to completely avoid chemicals, especially with all of the toxins in the air but we can take care of what we do have control of like the foods we consume and the products we apply to our bodies.



Prescription medications can alter the state of the body as well and create an imbalance. Millions of people are on prescription medications for various illness and diseases. Using complimentary alternatives methods can encourage better health. Eating nourishing foods, minimizing your stress levels and using chemical free products are just some complimentary ways that you can better your health.

I am a sweets gal. I love chocolate chip cookies and brownies! I know that sugar isn’t good for me and this is just one of those things I am having to work on. I am transitioning to a better me instead of overwhelming myself by stopping everything cold turkey.

I have had a natural skin care regimen for years that consisted of honey, sugar, lemon and bentonite clay. Once I tried the Arbonne skin care line, I knew right away that I was going to purchase some. My face felt amazing. Although I do not wear full face makeup, I decided to try it anyway. I loved how light the makeup felt on my face and how natural it looked.

I believe in using natural products, detoxing and all other things that we can do to improve our health. Most of all, I believe in helping others to achieve their health and life goals. I believe it is my purpose to help, uplift and raise the vibration of others so they can be their best selves.

I can’t wait to share these products with you’ll as we work together on bettering our health and achieving our goals!

My Visit to High Garden Herbal Store

I was in herb heaven yesterday.  I had a meeting with a personal trainer and Arbonne Independent Consultant at High Garden.  High Garden is a sipping apothecary and herbal store. When I first moved to Tennessee I began looking for herbal stores and asked the locals to recommend a store. One store kept coming up and that was High Garden. I googled the location and took the time to browse their website. I love adding the medicinal properties of herbs to my oils for hair and skin care. I like to give my carrier oils an extra boost. I also drink herbal tea to detox and support good health.

Meeting with Personal Trainer and Arbonne Distributor Kathy Mead.

When I walked into the store I stopped for a moment at the entry and took it all in. There was a sign posted near the entry that stated no laptops, so I was hesitant about having my cell phone visible. I decided to go ahead and ask an employee if I could take a few pictures. He granted me permission, so I went for it.

The tone of High Garden is very earthy. I enjoyed a cup of tea to uplift my mood as my day had started off rocky. I browsed around for a few checking out the herb selections. In the back of the store there was a Kombucha bar. I had my four-year son with me and he wanted something to drink so I asked the lady at the bar if they had anything that a child may like. She suggested a lemonade. My son tried it and it wasn’t his cup of tea, but we know how children’s taste buds can be. As an adult I am not as picky about taste when it comes to my health.



My tea definitely enhanced my mood. My original plans were to leave the herb shop and close up in my home all day but instead I ended up staying out and about enjoying the beautiful weather. I even took my little man to the park.

I purchased nettle for an infusion I am making for a customer, natural deodorant, a pine bundle for cleansing my space and a quitting blend for my husband as he is quitting smoking.


I will be revisiting this location. The employees are very knowledgeable about the herbs and products sold. This makes a huge difference. If you have any questions on where to start for your needs, they will guide you in the right direction. They answered every question I had, and I left a satisfied customer.
