From the most ancient times, certain foods were recognised to have special restorative and health giving properties. These were enshrined within their local traditions and passed on from generation to generation. Our ancestors across cultures have been leaving us a rich legacy of wise traditions to dive into and benefit from.
Growing up I learned from my grandmothers that raw milk and yogurt were helpful in dealing with skin problems like acne and even vaginal infections. The word is now out in avant-garde beauty and wellness circles about the benefits of topical probiotics for healthy skin. The times have finally caught up with my grandmothers!
A raw kefir and colloidal oatmeal pack is my staple favourite to rebalance and soothe irritated skin.

Peace and namaste.
