Expert Interview - Lose the Quarantine 15
2020 has been a lot of things... tough, sad, stressful, weird, and challenging are things to come to mind. Businesses have failed, and people have gotten sick, lost jobs, or lost loved ones.

We had the opportunity to interview Rhya Pachin, one of the experts in functional nutrition here in Charlotte. You may remember her from earlier in the year when she talked with us about the gut microbiome and the importance of using food and nutrition to heal the body.

Sugar is in everything. I am sure you know that things like cupcakes and candy are loaded with sugar, but you may be surprised about the sugar content hiding in some foods that may seem otherwise innocent.

Natural remedies for sensitive skin, dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis
Ever wonder what natural remedies you can use for sensitive skin, dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis?
With both Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism, I definitely suffer from dry skin, swelling, redness, and inflammation. I have found many skin care products to exasperate my skin conditions.
Check the back labels of products! Avoid certain ingredients like parabens, sulfates, dyes, and fragrances as well as alcohol-based cleansers and products - they can dry and irritate skin further. Not all moisturizers are created equal, so choosing the wrong moisturizer can also make dry skin and certain skin conditions worse. Hydration is key, and using sun protection is very important.
