Our Current Healthy Obsessions: Women’s Health

women

Even though International Women's Day only happens once a year in March, it's important to celebrate women all year-round! And when it comes to health, women have their own unique set of needs that continue to grow in recognition in both holistic and conventional medicine. Much to the responsibility of powerful girl bosses who have seen the needs of women, more and more women-empowering health products are flooding the shelves. These are some of the favorite natural health products that the talented woman on my functional medicine team use to take ownership of their wellness!

skinfix

Andrea C. - Skin Fix Cream

"With summer upon us that means more shaving and more bathing suits. I'm not one of those lucky ones that don't have to deal with razor burn. One of the best things I have found that have really helped me here with bikini line razor burn is this skin fix cream! I love it for underarms and bikini line and has made such a difference and helped me feel less self conscious in a bathing suit!"

brush

Candice W. - Supercharged Copper Body Brush

"I balance life's daily stressors by integrating simple wellness rituals like dry brushing into my daily routine. The Copper body Brush by Higher Dose elevates my pre-shower routine to a full spa experience that exfoliates the skin and supports lymphatic drainage. The bristles are natural horsehair that stimulates my skin while the copper creates friction that creates neutralizing ions that reduce acidity levels in the body. My skin stays supple and tight and I feel invigorated, absolutely the best dry brush. I think it's magic!"

The Detoxer

Emily B. - The Detoxer

"Once I added The Detoxer into my daily supplement intake, I saw a gradual but sure difference in the severity of my menstrual symptoms! After years of taking birth control then finally stopping, my symptoms came back worse than ever before. The Detoxer, which was recommended to me here at the clinic, has been a game changer for me in terms of taking back control of my hormones and flushing unnecessary toxins out of my system!"

pads

Emily M. - Organic Cotton Cover Post-Partum Pads

"Postpartum comes with all kinds of challenges, but I think all my other mama's out there would agree, that finding the BEST healing products is one area we'd love to not have to worry about. I love the brand Honey Pot because not only are they committed to non toxic menstrual products, they have postpartum herbal pads infused with essential oils."

native

Erin M. - Native Bodywash

"Something I added to my daily routine recently is the Native bodywash! It is truly my new favorite body wash. It gets nice and sudsy and leaves you feeling clean and fresh! Made with clean ingredients it also has great light fragrances to choose from also!"

Dr. Will Cole's Personal Picks

To Elevate Your Wellness

tampon

Hollie D. - L. Organic Cotton Tampons

"When I realized that the tampons I had been using for 15 years were loaded with ingredients that I would prefer to not have in my body -- I switched over to using L. Organic Cotton Tampons. These tampons are made with organic cotton and have a BPA-free plastic applicator. They are also free from chlorine bleaching, pesticides, fragrances, and dyes. Also a mega perk is the fact that my cramps have lessened so much since using these!!"

deodorant

Megan R. - Kopari Aluminum-Free Deodorant

"I love this natural deodorant! It is about as natural as it gets and relies largely on coconut oil (which is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial), as well as sage oil, for odor protection. Just be forewarned - because of the coconut oil in the formula, it can melt if it gets too hot, so keep it in a cool spot."
clay

Tara R. - Alitura Clay Mask Mini

"I do my best to take care of my skin as a woman, especially when I hit my 40's! Though I practice good skin care from the inside out with whole foods and lots of water, I love this Clay Mask to help give my face a mini detox and it softens and gives moisture to my skin. I love it! It's a great way to practice some self care."

bags

Tiffany L. - All Natural Corn Bag Heating Pad

"I absolutely love my "All natural Corn Bag Heating Pad''. This heating pad is my go to when back pain and cramp are upon me. This heating pad I can take anywhere and easily. On the days I'm in pain I love curling up with my corn bag and a blanket and relaxing."

soft-duo

Rosemary W. - Saalt Cup

"Our lives changed forever when we converted to menstrual cups in our house. We have 5 girls plus me, so we would have been buying boatloads of tampons. Now we just have Saalt cups that can last a decade. Way more sustainable, so much more convenient, and gives you so much more freedom and peace of mind when living your life and being active."

mane

Dr. Will Cole - holi (mane)

"You should be fueling your body with ingredients that radiate your health and enhance your natural allure. That's why I helped formulate, use, and recommend holi (mane) to all of my patients for flourishing hair, radiant skin and resilient nails. The synergy of this nutrient-dense blend supports the increase of two important antioxidants, glutathione and superoxide dismutase, both essential for cell vitality. It has exactly what you need, and nothing that you don't - how I think all supplements should be."
