Hemp protein, Goat whey powder, moringa, and spirulina beauty shake.
This shake was created at the spare of the moment on a late August minutes after walking into my dermatologist clinic for a rejuvenating skin treatment. I could hear the doctor’s explaining the benefits of the antioxidants injected into my sun damaged skin when I was inspired to formulate a new super-food shake rich with plant-based protein, and all the building blocks of a young glowing skin- this super-food shake would have the same action as the external Aesthetic treatment I was getting at the dermatologist’s clinic.
The power of combining two protocols, one which is aesthetics and the other nutritional is immense. Both are supporting each other and amplifying the same results: beauty, well being and healing. There is no separation between these two modalities. I believe they are an expression of each other, and in other words, your skin glow only if you are healthy internally.
My Idea of Balance
Balance is an ideal to strive for, while we are living our lives. Balance is synonymous for beauty, optimal health, physiological homeostasis. It is something we all strive for and can be measured by the rate of deviation from its central point of balance. The further we distance ourselves from this central point the more difficult it becomes to accomplish an efficient comeback, not to mention the fact that it is quite upsetting.
Back to my experience at the clinic — By the time I was done with my treatment, I had a plan of recovery which included dietary protocol and 4 super-foods shakes recipes for daily consumption.
