Getting to the root cause of health issues can be frustrating but functional medicine is all about finding the cause of DIS-EASE.

That’s MaryAnn under that skincare mask. She loves this Charcoal Purifying Mask by Beautycounter. A fun way to revive your skin. The charcoal draws out impurities while the peppermint soothes puffiness. This mask is great for teens (girls & boys) who might want to reduce blackheads & the appearance of pores.

You might want to gift this one to yourself & it is free. Try a 30-day free trial of Audible—an APP you add to your phone so you can listen to your favorite books. We often recommend listening to books to motivate clients (and ourselves) to get moving. What’s better than going for a walk or a run? Getting out there & listening to a great work of fiction, self-help book or biography read to you. The miles will fly by.

Thriving is about infinite possibilities. Essential oils offer infinite choices for wellness. Lavender oil is sometimes called the “Swiss Army Knife” of oils because it is so versatile.

Deanna & MaryAnn are so grateful to each of you for your support, time & attention. We are very appreciative of each other as well—we are friends, biz partners & fellow wellness warriors. Lorraine Miller’s journal From Gratitude to Bliss is a book that keeps us mindful of the gifts life gives us everyday. She asks us to take 5 minutes each day to write down 3 things we are thankful for. This simple act inspires us to focus on the best parts of our day & perhaps, motivate our own expression of gratitude to others.
