We are so proud of our Haute and Holistic contributor, Dr. Elizabeth Trattner for being featured in Bustle on 7 Weird, But Effective Ways To Treat Your Acne, According To Chinese Medicine. 

“There are a number of ways you can approach treating acne, whether you opt for topical creams, a diet change, or some new skin care products. You may not have thought to turn to Eastern medicine for some advice, but there are some interesting ways to treat your acne according to Chinese medicine. If you’ve tried different tricks and tips and still find you suffer from breakouts, you might want to give your hand at a new unique approach.

‘The beauty of Chinese medicine is that it looks at the root to see what is happening with the patient,’ says Dr. Elizabeth Trattner, A.P., D.O.M. is a Florida and National Board Certified Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture over email. ‘There are several different ways we treat, including herbs, acupuncture, and dietary therapy. All of those facets will have a treatment woven together to help balance and fix the patient’s acne.’

In Chinese medicine, acne is most often seen as “heat” in the lung and stomach meridians, according to the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences. Excess heat in the body rises up to the face. Another cause of acne in Chinese medicine is dampness. ‘Dampness is caused by too much cold food, oily food, dairy, and processed foods that allow the body’s energy to not transform and transport nutrients,’ says Trattner.

With all that in mind, you might want to try some different remedies to help balance your body out.”

Taking Care of your Whole Self

Body And Soul

Hello to our lovely H and H followers,

Our very own, Dr Trattner was featured in Life and Beauty Weekly for Body and Soul about ways to take care of both your body and soul.

If you think of health as simply swapping apples for cookies or getting a flu shot, you’re only seeing part of the picture.?? Complete wellness means maintaining balance in body, mind and spirit -which is not always easy to do if you’re the kind of person who puts themselves last in line for TLC. “As women, we tend to take on more than we can chew,” says Elizabeth Trattner, an integrative health expert in Miami, Florida. “No one wrote the handbook on how much should women juggle.” Take control of your well-being and care for yourself with these wellness tips.

Care for Your Spiritual Side

Get out in nature: To best feel spiritually fulfilled, step outside at least once a day to see the beauty in the natural world. “What happens is that you’ve disconnected from things around you,” says Trattner. “Whether it’s the woods, the ocean, a lake or even a flower shop, by being in nature you’ll feel the powerful effects of harmonizing with nature.”

Make it work by: leaving your electronic devices at your desk — or at least turned off — during your outdoor time. You can’t truly immerse yourself in nature if you’re distracted by a screen.
Learn how to meditate: No matter what your religion or belief system, daily meditation can help you connect with your spiritual self. It can also help you find deeper purpose and meaning in your life.

Our First Giveaway: We love Source Vital!

Source Vital Giveaway

Happy Wellness Wednesday everyone,

To launch Haute and Holistic , we are doing our first giveaway of the natural skin care line, Source Vital Apothecary! They are an all-natural skin line who have been promoting organic and natural for the past 30 years, way before natural and organic products were popular in the skin care world. This company uses only plant based ingredients, Today, many skin and beauty companies contain parabens and toxic chemicals which have been known to cause large range of health concerns like cancer, neurological disorders and even learning disabilities.

  Deozein Zest Spray  Night Repair Cream 2oz  first giveaway

I’m not the only one in love with this line! Source Vital was one of the exhibitors at the Dallas Indie Beauty Expo and was ranked as a “Buyers Favorite” I am so excited to share this wonderful line with you! By entering this Giveaway you have the chance to win:

  • Deozein Natural Deodorant (Original) = $16.95 (retail)
  • Deozein Zest Natural Deodorant = $16.95 (retail)
  • Night Repair Cream = $49.95 (retail)
  • Algae Deep Scrub = $32.95 (retail)

The wonderful thing about Source Vital’s Deodorants is that it protects your body from odor causing bacteria, but unlike other “natural” deodorants, it does not inhibit your body’s natural functions. Additionally, they are not tested on animals, but on Source Vital employees so you know it works. It isn’t so hard to switch to a natural deodorant. In fact, it was quite easy for us. We love the roll on and the smell is incredible, even when you sweat. A thing to consider, especially in the summer is to drink more water and eat more vegetables during this time to help flush out all the toxic by products in conventional deodorant. These are two full size products which will keep you smelling gorgeous for a long time. Many women today are switching to healthier options to help protect our bodies in reducing our toxic load, especially with deodorant.

The Night Repair Cream is great for moisturizing and hydrating your skin. It is made with seaweed, plant extracts and essential oils which both nourish and restore young looking skin to provide your skin with a more youthful glow. Safflower oil is a great choice for sensitive skin. Green tea extract is a proven anti oxidant which helps protect skin against free radicals and sun damage.

The Algae Deep Scrub is great and is one of Source Vital’s best sellers. This product contains seaweed and peppermint, along with natural corundum crystals which help cleanse the skin free of dead skin and dirt. It will leave your face feeling both refreshed and nourished. Because this product uses corundum  crystals it won’t hurt the environment like most conventional scrubs do.
