Eco-tourism in Merida and the Yucatan

Our week in Merida

My family and I just got back from being in Merida for a six days, and we are so excited to come back and tell you all the stories ranging from places we visited to how we stayed healthy while away.

Staying healthy

Traveling with food allergies is no easy task. When my family and I travel, we either stay in eco-friendly hotels or rental homes. For this trip, we opted to stay at Casa Limonero, featured in Conde Nast. This gave us the ability to cook our own meals to ensure we did not get sick. A trick that my mom and I have learned is to pack both Hum and Vital Protein to make smoothies or add to water, and a lunch for the air plane. Since we were traveling into another country, we had to eat our food before entering, but this food helped satisfy our stomachs until we got settled at the house.

The first thing we did in Merida was go to Eco Sana located in the Plaza City Center to grab something to eat. Here they served healthy salads, smoothies, vegetarian and vegan options along with clean sources of protein. We also found the cutest kiosk selling organic coconut products called A-ku-a. There we bought organic coconut meat and water which we would use for our smoothies throughout the week. After that we headed to pick up groceries, essential for the meals we would make.

Most stores in Merida carry organic coconut and almond milk. All stores carry stevia which is a healthy alternative to sugar, a wise choice since it is actually grown in Mexico. There is always good produce there, but you have to learn how to wash your fruits and vegetables. Our house had special drops to clean the produce with, so you do not get sick. My family and I personally opted for more of the traditional grocery stories versus the local market located in the center of town which was a bit like sensory overload.

Stores we Visited

Although we did not go to Merida to shop, we definitely stumbled upon some great places. My mom found a few boutiques before our trip like the natural perfumery, Coqui Coqui. It was so beautiful we ended up going every day. It is a perfumery, tea salon, a beautiful artisanal shop with residence above it. We will be doing a separate green beauty review on Coqui Coqui and other eco beauty in the Yucatan.

Another place which we fell in love with was the concept house, Casa T’HO. This colonial house had around 7 stores which all contained hand made luxury products, all made from Mexican artists. By the time this post goes up, they will also have a restaurant. We fell in love with one designer in particular, Daniela Bustos Maya whose work is all made from crochet and uses vintage coins. While we were there, Casa T’HO had a wonderful Zona Rosa exhibit featuring all pink images.

Eating out

On the occasion which we did eat out, we ended up finding great places.

I celebrated my 20th birthday in Mexico and during the day, stumbled upon Pola Gelato Shop which served sorbet. I ended up getting the banana hibiscus and pineapple with tamarind. It also happens to be right down the street from Coqui Coqui!

Later that night, my family and I went to Rosas y Xocolate, a local hotel, spa and restaurant in Merida. In fact, it won “The Best Urban Hotel” in all of Mexico by Food & Travel Magazine in both 2015 AND 2016! Then Caniras, a culinary organization awarded it with  “The Best Hotel Restaurant in Mexico” in 2016. Eating out anywhere with allergies is challenging, but everyone as Rosas y Xocolate was incredibly accommodating and of course, made delicious food. We even got to meet the owner, Sr. Carol who was the nicest man and helped us with out order, which was perfect and delicious. We even got a bonus tour of the hotel afterwards by him.

Merida

How beautiful is the residence? Visiting Rosas is a MUST in Merida

After our wonderful meal, my family and I walked a couple doors down and found a Chocolate museum. You can walk right in and learn about how chocolate is made. They had artisinal chocolate that was for sale which went back to support the museum. There was even sampling so I highly suggest you go after dinner.

Places we Went

One of the places I have been dreaming of going, and one of the main reasons my family went to Mexico was to visit the Pink Lagoons in Las Coloradas. This is about a three hour drive from Merida. For about $15 per person, a special guide will take you through. The water is so pink, it looks magical. For those who want to get into the bright colored water, it needs to be pre-arranged by a guide in order to talk to the owners of the salt factory. There are micro-organisms that live in the water, which makes it pink so you are not allowed to swim in it, but the drive is still totally worth it. Many people opt to stay in Valladolid or Rio Largartos to break the trip in half.

Message us @hauteandholistic for questions about the pink lagoon.

Afterwards, we went to see flamingos and clay beds. This clay is used for facials and body scrubs, but more on that in a separate post.

The following day, we had the most incredible guide, Rodolfo. He is Mayan and speaks perfect English, Spanish and french. He took us to the magical ruin of Uxmal which on March 25th (their equinox) the sun shines through the main window of the ruin.

MeridaAfterwards we went to see a Mayan shaman and his botanical garden. Our last stop for the day was Mayapan. We happen to visit this lesser known ruin on the Winter Solstice. On this day and during the Summer Solstice, a symbolic snake will appear alone the side of the ruin. The ruins in the Yucatan are full of symbolism and sacred geometry, but there will be a separate post about coming up.

Casa Limonero

MeridaOur hosts for this award winning home were two of the most resourceful, kind and warm individuals. Throughout our time there, they were able to provide us will guides, restaurant suggestions, food and just about everything you can image.

This was truly a trip of a lifetime. Make sure to check back soon for a full review of the Green Beauty and Eco we experienced while in the Yucatan.

Bridging the Gap: Haute and Holistic

“Like Mother Like Daughter”

Never was a truer sentiment spoken than this, which perfectly describes the relationship between my mother and me, the creators of Haute and Holistic, a women’s website determined to bridging the generational gap between women today. My mom, Elizabeth Trattner, has always been my role model. My admiration for her is endless. Not only does she have this charismatic and luminescent personality, but she was an international model and women’s rights advocate. Facing a life-threatening auto-immune condition thirty years ago, she was determined to regain and take control of her health. Not only did she accomplish this, she went on to become a doctor of Integrative and Chinese Medicine, forging a unique career path more than twenty years ago. She even appeared on Oprah with her mentor and our dear friend, Dr. Andrew Weil, to share her story. When I was born, she committed to raising me in a mindful way, in a holistic household. Like I said before, she is pretty great.

From a young age, I knew my mom was way cool and unlike other moms. As I got older, I realized just how versatile my mom truly was. So, when other adults would say “Wow, she is so much like you,” I wasn’t offended or put off like other teenagers might be. In fact, I prided myself on being similar to her. Imagine, a 13 year-old being compared to someone she viewed as Wonder Woman, it doesn’t get much better.

Fast forward to my senior year of high school, I started writing for an anti-bullying and women’s motivational blog, The Lady Code Blog. It was this experience where I developed a love for Journalism. Although I previously considered a career in medicine, I did not necessarily want to follow in my mother’s exact footsteps. Despite this decision, my mom continues to support me in all my endeavors, ranging from my state and national pageant titles, reporting for pageant blogs and every one of my speech and theater performances. Her never-ending support really shone when I applied for colleges all over the country, yet decided to accept a full scholarship to the University of Central Florida, where I am currently studying Broadcast Journalism and able to continue working as a model (sound familiar?).

Bridging the Gap

For years, my mom and I have bounced around the idea of working together to merge our love of our fellow sisterhood. We were encouraged by others who told us how great we are together as a team and that we possess a certain “marketing appeal.” This past Spring while attending the Indie Beauty Expo in Dallas, we realized the impact that working together could have. People expressed respect for my mom’s medical knowledge and loved that I am a millennial with extensive knowledge of health and wellness, the consequence of growing up in an holistic household immersed in Chinese and integrative medicine. We have always eaten organic food, we shun products with toxic chemicals and strive to minimize our carbon footprint because these things are all vital to the health of our bodies and the earth. It all came together earlier this year when we officially launched Haute and Holistic. 

 

Haute and Holistic

Today, whether you are a woman in your fifties or a twenty-something young woman, you most likely are reading magazines, blogs and books about how to eat healthy, lose weight, take care of your skin or pick the right makeup for yourself. However, it is a challenge for experienced “mid-lifers” to appeal to someone from a younger demographic and vice versa. This is where the idea of Haute and Holistic came from, drawing from the perspectives of two generations – millennials and mid-lifers, who focus on green products.  Uniting medical facts with the lifestyle experience of a millennial, we present balanced information for women of all ages to create broad appeal and education for everyone.

Elizabeth’s Words

Having been in the Health and Wellness field for almost thirty years has given me great perspective regarding women’s bodies, their wellbeing and healthy aging. When I began, actively seeking a healthy lifestyle was deemed crunchy, bohemian and counter-culture. Now people will grab onto almost anything if they think it will make them young, healthy and strong. It is important to educate women of all ages regarding regimens that work and which is supported by medical evidence, whether it be a modality of health, nutrition or a beauty product. There is a tremendous amount of noise in the media right now because the beauty and wellness industry is growing exponentially. The truth offers the best medicine of all and my goal is to help educate women in leading healthy, happy and spiritual lives.  I am considered an expert source in health, wellness and green beauty. I have been fortunate to be cited as a medical source in national magazines and publications. My advice has been featured in hundreds of magazines and online publications. I serve on the Beauty Meets Wellness Initiative within the Global Wellness Institute. This group connects beauty, wellness and medical leaders redefine standards in the beauty industry and create aesthetic responsibility worldwide. It is my honor to educate women of all ages truly bridging the gap. Women have the power to change the world and when our body, mind and spirit are aligned we can do anything!!!

 

Charlotte’s Life Experience

As mentioned earlier in this post, my mom almost died 30 years ago. She has an autoimmune disorder which put her in a medically induced come and on a ventilator. She spent over 180 days in the hospital right out of college. I, unfortunately, inhered similar health issues and must be very careful of the foods I eat and medications I take.  I have had the good fortune of growing up in a household which values self-care and care for the environment. One of my mom’s many goals in life is to ensure I avoid the consequences of our toxic environment. As a devoted mother and doctor, she offers practical, methodical and medically-backed guidance for maintaining good health. Furthermore, I was diagnosed with a learning disability, apraxia at a young age which led me to create my service program, Just Like Me 2,   sharing my story of perseverance with the public.

We now share our collective message with you. I would not change my situation for the world. My experience allows me to inspire other young women to live a healthy lifestyle in a manner that is more relatable than conventional women’s magazines, while my mom appeals to other mothers and an older generation of women seeking a deeper perspective. We truly are bridging that gap between mothers and daughters.

This is an image of Elizabeth and Charlotte in the Salt Flats of the Chilean Atacama Desert.

Together we want to work on bridging the generational gap in a life well-lived for everyone and provide good evidence-based straight-forward advice and encouragement for women of all ages to be the best they possibly can be, a concept that defies age stereotyping. We are honored to be part of this wonderful campaign of Bridging the Gap.

Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway with Little Moon Essentials.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Little Moon Essentials is helping us raise Awareness   

As we continue to create awareness about this disease that affects 1 out of 8 women (click here for more information.) One way to help cope with stress hormones is to have a nightly ritual. Rituals help the body ground down and produce oxytocin, the feel good hormone.  Taking a bath or using lotion or aromatherapy before bedtime is the perfect prescription. Little Moon Essentials is an organic bath and body company from Colorado. They produce beautiful aromatherapy sprays, lotions, sugar scrubs and bath salts. We have teamed up with Little Moon Essentials to give away one full size gift box a week to raise awareness for breast cancer awareness month. We love them because their products contain essential oils that are nature’s perfect prescription for making you feel better.

Little Moon Essentials

Here are some of my favorite essential oils for relaxation that are in Little Moon Essentials products:

Lavender is the superstar in the essential oil world. It too has anti-microbial, fungal and viral activity to it. It also in an analgesic, sedative, antiaxiolitic, it helps with headaches, lice, cysts, muscle pain, digestive issues, depression, nervousness and many other mood disorders. It can also help with PMS as wellbeing. Lavender is a wonderful first aid remedy, especially for burns; it is among the safest and most widely used essential oils. Lavender was used during the Victorian times for fainting. There are over 350 studies on lavender  demonstrating everything from mood enhancement and balance to pain relief. It brings balance both physically and emotionally. I like many uses for lavender. For relaxation my favorite aromatherapy scent is Clear skies Ahead by Little Moon Essentials.

Rosemary:

Rosemary was burned in French hospitals to purify the air up until the 20th century. This essential oil is also an excellent anti-bacterial, antifungal and antiviral. It is an excellent antiseptic as well and why is was used in hospitals a long time ago. It is an excellent tonic and is very similar to lavender as far as uses but rosemary is more of a stimulant and lavender is more of a sedative or has a calming nature to it. Research has demonstrated that it helps with memory and cognition. Rosemary can be used in cooking. I have used the essential oil diffused to help in memory and recall for test taking. A great mixture to help with cognition is to use a few drops of rosemary, lemon, orange and lavender in a spray bottle with distilled water to lift mood.

Rose  Rose is a beauty favorite, It is used in many perfumes body oils and face creams. Egyptian rose, Rose helps ground and center you before bedtime. A recent study demonstrated aromatherapy with rose oil can reduce anxiety

Euclayptus: when we think of cough drops we think of eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is used for treating the common cold and all its side effects like coughing, mucous, sinus infections sore throat. Other uses are for insect bites and itching. Eucalyptus oil also has anti viral, fugal and bacterial effects. My favorite use for eucalyptus is during a cold. I like to take a bowl of hot water and create a tent with a towel over my head draped around the bowl. I will put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in inhale the steam. It works wonders for any cold, or virus and opens my repository passages.

For our Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway please follow both Haute and Holistic and Little Moon Essentials on Instagram.  Please tag three friends and comment with your favorite essential oil. We double check to ensure honesty.

Journaling to Relieve Stress and connect with your Mind and Soul

Right now with the hurricane ready to barrel down on all of Florida I thought I would share this post in hopes that people would read it before their power went out. If you are reading this some other time or place, the practice of journaling can help you in times of stress and help you connect with you mind and soul and relive free flowing anxiety.

Journaling

There are many ways to connect with your mind, heart and spirit, especially in times of hard ship. Journaling is a way to engage the creative spirit within you and get out what is called “free flowing anxiety”. I myself have used this during times throughout the last 20 years and I encourage my patients to use this exercise as well. You do not need to be a world class writer to journal. In fact, I keep a picture journal instead. Next to my bed is a lovely Italian paper journal. In a bedside drawer I keep a pair of scissors, glue stick, and pages of magazines, newspaper or even greeting cards with images that I love or resonate with an emotion that I might be feeling at the time. These images sometimes have relevant text written on it and sometimes no text at all. It only takes a few minutes to cut out images and glue them into the journal. I will write a few words that expresses what I am feeling or just leave the montage of photos without any words.  This exercise has become so popular that my daughter, who was young when I began this process, regularly requested to make a journal page with me, especially if she was  home sick or if something emotional in her life has happened. It is amazing to look back through the pages of the journal and reflect upon life’s passages.

Journaling Keeping a journal helps free your mind. You can write, use imagery and if you’re really talented keep many thoughts in your journal. With the hurricane on the way, I will be using this opportunity to write without distraction and hope channel what is deep in my subconscious mind. I encourage all of you who are down here  in Florida to do the same in the hours we won’t have power or  those who may just feel lost in this difficult time.

Indie Beauty Expo, New York City, Some Personal Favorites

Indie Beauty Expo

Indie Beauty Expo, Personal Favorite Roundup

After returning from a whirlwind week in New York City I wanted to share some of my personal favorites from IBENY 17 (Indie Beauty Expo).  I was first introduced to some of these brands in May at IBE Dallas and am confidently retain them on the top of my list.

The brands that won me over meet a variety of prerequisites such as their low carbon footprint, personal mission statements, high quality ingredients and mindfulness towards health, not to mention their appeal to a wide range of consumers:

Kindred: I met Frances, the owner, at IBE Dallas and visited with her again in NY. Driven by her own skin challenges she created a line of high quality, organic oil based skin care. I love all the aspects of her products from the beautiful fragrance to the delicate nature of the non-greasy oils. Her cleansing oil is appreciably light which is unique among the crowd of organic cleansing oils. Kindred’s facial Oil Cleanser helped me break a 25-year habit using a market-leading Japanese cleansing oil.  Also, her facial mask clays are formaldehyde-free, a known environmental toxin.  Their newly released Eye Treat, which contains caffeine and botanicals, is a new favorite of mine. It’s perfect for my puffy allergic eyes and I use it morning and night. It’s perfect or those mornings when I wake up like Hitch. Kindred just released a solid moisturizer baton, which is compact and TSA-friendly for travel. As an added bonus, I love that the packaging on all Kindred products is designed for protection while travelling and it’s reusable. Many of the products have a light sandalwood fragrance.

Luk Beautifood: This luscious lip nourishment company from Australia really drew me in with its packaging (wrapped in reusable fruit-printed cloth to clean computer and phone screens) and its edible food-grade ingredients.  Women ingest a lifetime of lipstick pigments, waxes and petrochemicals that contain heavy metals and toxic pigments, which are endocrine disrupters accumulating over a lifetime compromising our immune system (read more here). The fact that Luk Beautifood contains food grade ingredients places them at the top of my list. In fact, I had one for a snack on my way to JFK (JK).  The company’s owner is a food scientist with years of experience behind herself in food testing, creation and preparation.

Luxe Botanics: This beautiful South African brand is sourced from high quality oils and fruits from South Africa. Not only is it brilliantly made, backed by science but a portion of proceeds go back to the communities that produce their core botanicals in Kenya, Brazil and Malawi. From Nature to Nuture, we love this brand. They have three core botanicals: Marula Oil from Kenya, Camu Camu Berry from Brazil, and Kigelia Africana from Malawi. Their products are made with pure botanical ingredients in combination with compounds synthesized from natural and organic bases. They are ethically harvested with science behind them. Luxe Botanics are vegan, cruelty free, and ethically and sustainably sourced. The founder and creator studied biotechnology in Australia. She had a successful nine-year career working for pharmaceutical in both Australia and Singapore, before deciding to pursue her dream of creating Luxe Botanics.

L’odaites:  This tiny gorgeously packaged line is from France.  With only five products, this line is derived from natural pure extracts from fruits, flowers or seeds.  Using the fruit sugar from dates is an interesting concept. Through cold processing they maintain the integrity of the active ingredients. These date-based products are rich in minerals which support healthy skin, including the synthesis of collagen and elastin. A study in Pakistan treating facial skin with date extract improved elasticity, pigmentation, redness, brightness and hydration.  http://dx.doi.org/10.3390/cosmetics4020013

Osmia Organics:  This line was created by Dr. Sarah Villafranco who left Emergency Room medicine to pursue a healthier lifestyle. Drawing on her medical background and after a lot of experimentation she created Osmia, a broad line of beauty products derived from consciously-sourced plant materials. Although I didn’t get to spend that much time with her, I was highly impressed by her line. Her personal story is compelling to all of us who are too afraid to make a change no matter where you are in life. I tried her Nectar vital rose drops and loved them. Her spot treatment which is used for breakouts is tea tree oil free making it ideal for people with sensitive skin.

Little Moon Essentials:  This all-natural affordable line is one of my favorites.  All the products are organic and made in Colorado. Their wonderful organic bath salt soaks are calming and restorative and I have personally used their products for years. It is a way to bring nature into your bathtub.  I love their Clear Skies Ahead room spray, Dream Cream, and sugar scrubs.  They have a cooling spray, called Lift Off, which is great to use after a day at the beach or when you’re experiencing hot flashes or both. This brand is very affordable for people looking to transition to green products. You can read more about detoxification through salt bath therapy here.

Olverum: This brand is simplistic and singularly focused producing a gorgeous German cult bath oil. The smell is out of this world.  We met them at IBE Dallas and can’t get enough of their formulation of plant extracts, specifically selected for their traditional therapeutic properties. Olverum provides a luxurious synergistic nighttime experience from bath to bedtime. This treasured olfactory treat from the 1930’s has us swooning for it today.

Element Candles:  Another company we met at the Indie Beauty Expo in Dallas and happy to see them in NYC has a unique collection of candles that are as clean as you’re going to find. Most people with allergies and respiratory issues must be careful of candles. They may contain heavy metals in wicks, toxic fragrance, petrochemical derived wax and they produce soot that gets into the air exacerbating respiratory illnesses. This candle has none of that.  As an asthmatic I can get behind a product specifically designed to avoid all those problems.

 

Indie Beauty Expo

Seen above: The Blackout from The Makeup Mitty and Element candle.

Mitty: Say “goodbye” to disposable wipes! The Makeup Mitty helps you clean up your act without messing up the planet.  This company offers large sizes for the face and a mini size for your eyes and other tiny areas. This product is a reusable low carbon footprint wash mitten. It is gentle enough to use on the most delicate skin.  These Mitties outperform and outlast wipes and washcloths and in the long run reduce your carbon footprint. Being overly fastidious about my products I discovered that the Mitty can also double as a cleaner for cosmetic brushes.

Source Vital:  These friends from the Indie Beauty Expo in Dallas and NYC have two products I’m crazy about:  Deozein Zest deodorant and their Tranquil Multi spray.  We have been crazy for their innovative clean roll-on deodorant for months.  Making a switch to a clean deodorant can be tricky for some people during their transition from conventional products. Especially in hot locales like here in South Florida, it can be a smelly experience no matter how clean your diet is. We put it to the test. This deodorant performed wonderfully. It even survived Miami Swim Week castings. Deozein Zest is not just a cover-up, their formulas eliminate odor for both men and women. Source Vital formulates their deodorant with pure essential oils, natural mineral salts and seaweed extract, all known for controlling bacteria that cause odor. Source Vital is a broad-range company that has many full lines and custom formulas, but I had to mention our favorites.

Ayuna, Less is Beauty:  This beautiful high-end line from Spain offers a small line of theory based products.  We especially love their volcanic glass and carbon mask. This very gentle mask helps to draw out impurities, reduce skin sensitivity and leaves your skin feeling radiant and rejuvenated. The collection is elegant and complete.

Stay tuned for future writings on H&H as we continue to review other outstanding brands from the Indie Beauty Expo Dallas an New York.

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.
