You name it, I’ve more than likely tried it at some point. Some of these treatments worked for a little while and some didn’t work at all. But none of them were a true solution to my problem, as they didn’t address the underlying issues that were causing me to break out in the first place.

How To Balance Hormones Naturally Part 1

Contributor: Primally PurePhotographer: Primally Pure I will be the first to admit, for so long I thought eliminating toxins and natural living was just a marketing ploy—even as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), I fought against it!
