If you’re anything like me, you LOVE learning all the things, researching new topics, devouring books/podcasts/documentaries/instagram posts/etc… But there are also times where your mind, body, and spirit are begging for the opposite. Where you feel like if you try to take in one more crumb of new information, your brain will explode. Well, I’m here to tell you that that is totally normal and okay! Especially during winter. And we’re starting to enter the darkest, coldest time of the year here in the northern hemisphere, so these feelings are right on time. I ..read more

Why an entire generation of women are on birth control

by Annika - FNTP, HTMA
1M ago
Have you ever wondered why an entire generation of women are on birth control? It’s really not a mystery when you think about it: We’ve been scared into thinking that we can get pregnant any day of the month. Celebrities are used to market birth control to women, and are in trendy fun commercials that have at least one minute of warnings listed, but no one takes them seriously. Health providers VERY RARELY (not to say it never happens) sit us down and inform us of all the possible adverse events we may encounter while on hormonal birth control. Let alone what it’s like to get off the pill and ..read more

What is beauty in today's society?
Annika Nicole Blog
by Annika - FNTP, HTMA
2M ago
We have come so far from the true definition of beauty, beauty foods, and beauty practices. It’s no wonder why being a woman in today’s society is so confusing and frustrating. It’s no wonder why we fall into the endless trap of comparison, envy, and depression when scrolling on social media. It’s no wonder why plastic surgery and botox is on the rise, when all we see are edited women and the only way to become like them is to undergo face and body modifications. We’re being coerced into believing that beauty foods are things like fake meat, tons of nuts and seeds, salads, and vegetables. We’v ..read more

Your v*gina is self-cleaning.

Yes, that’s right! Your v*gina is self-cleaning, self-lubricating, and has its own microbiome! Another amazing feature of the female body that is best when left alone. We’ve been taught to wash, douche, wax, laser, shove tampons and cups up in there, use scented lubes, perfumes, fragrance, etc. In turn we’re struggling with lots of discomfort - itching, odors, bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, and the list goes on. V*ginal health and wellness is so important, and often times, totally overlooked. We think products are the key to a thriving v*gina, but really, less is more. Check out my sto ..read more

How to support your metabolism | autumn + winter edition
Annika Nicole Blog
by Annika - FNTP, HTMA

The seasons are changing, so we should be too! Humans are cyclical beings, particularly women. Our bodies follow a circadian rhythm (24 hours), an infradian rhythm (28 days - our menstrual cycle), and a yearly rhythm that changes with the seasons. If we did the same things and ate the same things year-round (unless you live in a climate that really doesn’t change), you wouldn’t be able to support your health and cyclical nature optimally. Swipe ➡️ for some ways you can begin transitioning your body from a summer to winter schedule, while making sure you’re supporting your metabolism along the ..read more

Femininity Part 5: The feminine urge to slow down is a biological need - not laziness or lack of ambition. So, if you’re feeling that burning desire to slow down, run away from the office and start feeding chickens and baking bread all day… not only is that totally okay, it’s NORMAL. If you haven’t heard my story, I was the ultimate wanna be girl boss hustler I can’t even say this with a straight face now because I realize how FAR away that is from my design and true desires of my heart. I went to school for business, got my degree, and immediately went into the corporate world where I realize ..read more
