Beauty is skin deep; however, skin health is truly important.
In this installment of Local Logistics, Making Your Life Work FOR You, we’re talking all about skin health. What you CAN DO to support skin health, which delicious foods can give you a healthy complexion, how skincare professionals can help and when it’s time to see a doctor.
How your skin looks impacts your day and is an indicator of your internal health. Chronic skin issues are a sign it’s time to take a look at your overall health.
Your skin is your largest organ. It provides a large surface area for your body to rid itself of toxins. You may be surprised at the culprits behind your breakouts.
Esthetician Sheila Adriano of Bella Trio Salon and Spa joins us for this installment to share her professional insight. I also wrangled in fellow blogger and accomplished lady boss Kimberly Knight as well.
Sheila gave us both facials while explaining what we could each do to keep our skin healthy and how others can find a great esthetician in their area.

What does CSA mean?
A CSA program is a Community Supported Agriculture Program and perhaps one of the best things you can do for your health, your finances and the environment.
No big deal.
If you’ve been sleeping on CSA programs, stop and don’t be so hard on yourself. These programs started coming into the norm in the 1990s, but 30 years later they’re still not getting the attention they deserve. Seriously.
The most popular CSA program content on the interwebs in the last year only received 207 social media shares. That number ought to have been like 300 million. Perhaps I’m being a bit excessive there, but these programs are awesome and genuinely one of the best things you can do for yourself.
Stick with me and delve into why Community Supported Agriculture Programs deserve more attention, namely yours.
How are zen, poke bowls and logistics related?
Ever notice that you find what you look for?
There’s two reasons for that: Science and the Unknown.
Like how I capitalized Unknown to make it seem super important? When I say unknown I’m referencing what some call God, Allah, Buddha, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the Universe, Britney Spears or simply the Higher Power. NutritionSheila.com is a safe place free of judgement and open to all who seek health, so I went with the Unknown to encompasses all the aforementioned names.
Scientifically speaking you find what you seek because your neurons are all geared up for it. Like when you are hankering to buy a new car and everywhere you turn there’s some jerk driving your brand new red Prius with witty personalized plates. Just as an example of course.
When it comes to the Unknown reasoning, let’s go with quoting Persian poet Rumi and side stepping any potential emotional triggers. M’kay?
Rumi is often quoted as saying, “What you seek is seeking you.” I dig this and for many years went around living by the quote. Turns out, it’s a mistranslation. Thank the Unknown for cousins. My cousin across the ocean blue in all his infinite Persian wisdom told me that the actual translation is, “You are what you seek.” Small variation, but this brings the woo-woo back to science.

HIV/AIDS is not an easy topic to discuss. Why is that? Why is it so easy to discuss the cold virus or flu virus, but not the human immunodeficiency virus?
Countless numbers of individuals have suffered and passed away because of nothing more than the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS. The same stigma has delayed the cure in more ways than one.
This week Dr. Allison Mathews stops by to share how she got involved in HIV/AIDS research and is now leading the way in her community to link affected individuals and community resources by way of technology. She also reveals how stigma, discrimination and systematic oppression are not only preventing the cure, but complicit in the propagation of the virus.
I'll let Dr. Mathews take it from here.
Welcome to the 2018 NutritionSheila.com Wellness Reading List. This is the third annual Wellness Reading List that we’ve done and it’s because the first two were such a hit that it continues.
Before we dive into this year’s books let’s talk about the ‘why’ behind the list. Why is it a wellness list on a website with nutrition in the name? Why aren’t all of the books exclusively focused on food and nutrition? Why?
Your weight, health and every component of your life are because of the logistics of your life. A very simple example of this is food on the counter – we eat more of it. If you continually put out a bag of chips on the counter, despite wanting to not eat the bag of chips, you’re going to eat the bag of chips. How’s that working out for you? What can you do differently?
Both are great questions to start crafting a better life moment by moment.
