Radical Self-Care


There is a buzz out there on self-care, but not just any type of self-care…we’re talking “radical self-care”!

The University of Indiana defines radical self-care as “the assertion that you have the responsibility to take care of yourself first before attempting to take care of others.”

It goes along the lines of the concepts that one cannot serve from an empty pot, one cannot pour from an empty cup, the empty pot cannot pour.

As Suzanne Degges-White Ph.D. in Psychology Today shares, “Radical self-care is about taking care of things at the source rather than just sugarcoating or managing the symptoms.”

There is a lot of information presented today connecting the gut to the center of our wellbeing; either the root of the problem or the missing link to true healing. The gut’s connection to the brain influences cholesterol, blood insulin, obesity, hormones, and proper release of toxins just to name a few of the many impacts to our overall health. Going to the source for many people is about going to the gut and getting “to the root of the problem.” Our digestive tract is truly a gateway for our body to interact with the outside world. Without the right proactive protection in place, we are more susceptible to the challenges and exposures growing in today’s world.

The Smart Strains™ in Somaya Life® bring good bacteria that provide specific modes of action to the body; bringing balance and alignment through the brain-gut connection. With specific functions benefiting both digestive and immune health, these ‘doers’ go to work and help fix problems by enhancing the digestive microbiome, utilizing excess stomach acid, inhibiting pathogens, and communicating with the immune system through modulating and regulating immune response.

Radical self-care is going beyond a bubble bath, massage, or me-time. We're talking about really, truly doing what you need to do to protect your emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual energies. Prioritizing your own healing and wellbeing, in order to be able to serve others.  Connecting back to the source and finding balance is a tremendous step in the right direction!
