Beautiful You

Beautiful You

On a daily basis we strive to shine inside and out. From maintaining that healthy skin glow to feeling energized, to making sure we consume the best foods for our body, we are on a mission to be the best birds we can be.

We met up with Dr. Kristi Wrightson of Nest Integrative Medicine Spa to find out just how to keep healthy now and forever. And while we thought we knew it all, she blew our minds!

Dr. Kristi focuses on three important principles for optimal healthcare and healing: one's individual needs, education and care for overall nutrition and anti-aging processes. From natural remedies and exercise, to even the best feminine care products to use, you'll feel refreshed from a basic woman to woman consultation. We left saying "who knew?"

We hear beauty is skin deep. From Dr. Kristi to you, here are a few nutrients to make your skin shine: kale, arugula, blueberries, avocado, water, walnuts, salmon, blackberries, gogi berries and cucumbers.
