Wellness Wednesday + Down The Rabbit Hole = WELL RABBIT HOLE #harhar

Estimated Reading Time:
This week, going down the Rabbit Hole started with Goop Morning Smoothie which I'm sure you remember reading about how it divinely entered my life here.

But before I jumped down the Goopy Goopilicious Goop Hole - sorry, in one of those alleritic ( actual word is alliteration) moods today-  I wanted to know what exactly it was that I was putting into my body.

Which means research I must do.So research I did do.

I began with the basics, starting with Moon Juice and its owner which is how I came upon this, which didn't shock me as much as it did these people. Honestly, come on now, Gwyneth Paltrow drinks this chicks smoothies, of course it's gonna be crazy insane and awesome and turning - green from jealousy and not from the green juice because this girl seems to have her shit waaaay too together -  inducing. #duh



Usually though,  a celebrity gets burnt and then we all move on, but I came upon this which I liked reading because not only did it give her a chance to say her piece after she got burnt, but it also allowed me to observe her, and figure out if she was legit or not.

I found a few other articles which honestly were as out there as the first hoopla raising one, but hey, live and let live; plus - this woman is GAAALLOOOWING. #sign me up.


Ps- anyone in my books with the last name Bacon is legit. Automatically. #mikedrop


When we were in California, I had the yummy Silver Strawberry smoothie with the Beauty Dust added in when I was at the store which made me want to make some at home, which lead me here.

 (SIDE NOTE: I couldn't find the exact recipe anywhere but I came across this picture in the article so I sneakily zoomed in and tried to cockily remake it by eyeballing the measurements. Let me sum it up for you - #fail.)

I'm also not too sure about this whole ingesting colloidal silver business.

Mayo clinic says oh no :

Colloidal silver isn't considered safe or effective for any of the health claims manufacturers make. Silver has no known purpose in the body. Nor is it an essential mineral, as some sellers of silver products claim.
Colloidal silver products are made of tiny silver particles suspended in a liquid — the same type of precious metal used in jewelry, dental fillings, silverware and other consumer goods.
Colloidal silver products are usually marketed as dietary supplements that are taken by mouth. Colloidal silver products also come in forms to be injected or applied to the skin.
Manufacturers of colloidal silver products often claim that they are cure–alls, boosting your immune system, fighting bacteria and viruses, and treating cancer, HIV/AIDS, shingles, herpes, eye ailments and prostatitis.
However, no sound scientific studies to evaluate these health claims have been published in reputable medical journals. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration has taken action against some manufacturers of colloidal silver products for making unproven health claims.
It's not clear how much colloidal silver may be harmful, but it can build up in your body's tissues over months or years. Most commonly, this results in argyria (ahr–JIR–e–uh), a blue-gray discoloration of your skin, eyes, internal organs, nails and gums. 
I'm gonna stick with Mayo clinic on this one.
I was still super curious about the dusts though, which is why I read this article. 


After all that rabbit holing I ended up feeling super excited about using the products so I bite the herbal capsule ( instead of bullet... get it? #fail? or #slamdunk?)
