I am often asked about the products and therapies I use and love, so wanted to put together a space on The Wildery where I share theses resources with you! Stay tuned – all my favorites are coming soon! Make sure you are signed up for The Wildery Newsletter so you’re the first to know! I’m working behind the scenes to put together a growing, evolving, and vetted list that starts with my favorites in Clean Living: Beauty, Home, and Food.
Clean Living Hack: What we put on our skin is so important, so I run all my products through EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. They provide safety ratings for over 70,000 cosmetic products and counting (including brands, individual items, and even ingredients if your particular product isn’t included), so I can feel confident in what I’m using. They’ve also released EWG’s Healthy Living App with ratings for more that 120,000 food and personal care products. I highly recommend you run all of your personal and home care products through their filter, and look for ratings in the Green Zone.
Books and Resources
I am a voracious reader, and fortunately I have built quite the library of books, scientific studies, and resources that have inspired, influenced, excited, upset, and ultimately transformed me. Again, stay tuned because I’m putting together a list of “must reads” when it comes to health and wellness.
Info Hack: When it comes to our health, we have to be our own advocates and this means developing the ability to consume information (from books, to news reports, even to doctors’ suggestions) with a generous dose of intelligent skepticism. I’ve had to learn to read with the awareness that science evolves, opinions differ, and the internet can be a deep dive into uneducated, dogmatic nonsense disguised as “cure alls”. So I read to stay informed, but filter out the information that doesn’t add up. And my favorite resource for weighing information (from the content in books to a random article on the internet) is PubMed.
“PubMed comprises more than 28 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.” It’s basically an up-to-date, online encyclopedia of emerging scientific findings, and my “go to” when I want to dive deeper.
From Blue-Blocker Glasses to help protect your circadian rhythms, to Far Infrared Saunas, to Red Light Therapy and Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy, stay tuned for all of my favorites – coming soon! In the meantime, I’ve written about a few interesting therapies here.
Health is bio-individual. There really is no one-size-fits-all, so I’m hesitant to share my favorite supplements because I don’t want them to be viewed as prescriptive. But you’re smart! Just remember that I am not a doctor and the information on The Wildery is not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. That said, I think supplements can be extremely powerful when they’re high quality and used with wisdom. I’ve spent a lot of time researching supplements – from trustworthy brands, to the best natural anti-inflammatories, to the core supplements in our anti-cancer arsenal.
To begin with, one of my favorites – and what everyone in my family takes – is Cell Protector. I write about why I love this formula so much in this article.
If you’ve read my story, you know that health + wellness is a priority – for me, my family, friends, and community. Advocating for the very best in health + wellness has meant that I research everything (run it by experts, double and triple check it, stay up-to-date on emerging info), don’t get caught up in trends, don’t get swayed by social media influencers or opportunities, and have one main rule: If it’s not good enough for my family, it’s not good enough.
Health + wellness is too much of a gift, and I have been in the trenches with too many people, to ever recommend anything that I’ve not vetted. Any time I hear about the pros of a therapy, product, service, or idea, I spend a lot of time reviewing and researching its potential cons – and this is the filter through which I make recommendations and share ideas. I want you to know that I’m extremely picky and anti-dogmatic, meaning that new research emerges constantly and if my thoughts about a previous recommendation change, I’ll let you know.
My heart with The Wildery is to create a space of inspiration and information, and to point you to resources that have helped me along the way. It’s a collage of “What I wish I knew back then…” and “What I’m learning now…” when it comes to Wellbeing for Your Whole Being.
I have decided to become an affiliate to those companies that I love, trust, and use. This means that I receive a small commission for products sold if you choose to buy through links on this website. And I will occasionally seek out affiliation agreements with companies when I find a product that I can’t live without – not the other way around.
