Dr.Elizabeth Trattner🌸  🀄️Dr.Chinese/Integrative Medicine 🦋Wellness &Beauty Expert 📿Ancient Wisdom for Modern Women® 💎Creator of the Gemstone Facial “The Healing Touch”ALLURE

Oooooo wow, did you know the loofahs are loaded with bacteria that can make your skin worse by exposing it to mold and bacteria?🦠
.
Happy to share my knowledge of skincare and a shout out for the Gemstone Facial in @oprhamag today.
.
Self care is at an all time high and baths are at the top of the list.
.
I love baths, but not itching like a madwoman afterwards.
.
Exfoliation can leave skin smooth and soft or turn into a rash in the making.
.
"Loofahs are natural exfoliants and help create more circulation on skin—but proceed with caution," says Elizabeth Trattner, a certified acupuncture physician who specializes in Chinese and integrative medicine.
.⠀
"Having worked on skin for more than 20 years, I advise my patients not to use a loofah. When hot water hits your body, your pores open and a dirty loofah can actually induce bacteria into your skin. On the other hand, when you step out of the shower, your pores close from the cold, allowing bacteria to get trapped inside."
.
Sounds gross, right?
.
Just use your hands or a bar of soap.🧼
.
If the idea of bathing with just hands and a bar of soap doesn't sound appealing or hygienically friendly, Dr. Trattner—who is known for her signature gemstone acupuncture facial—offers an interesting alternative.
.
"I actually prefer makeup remover mitts that are made of a special material, as they scratch less than washcloths or loofahs and can be washed repeatedly. The carbon footprint is actually lower because of the reuse factor.”
.
If your going to use a loofah you have to sterilize it otherwise you are exposing your skin to some nasty bacteria.
.
My preference is washcloths over loofahs.
.
As far as washcloths, Dr. Trattner adds that they should be used one time only and then laundered.
.
"Dead skin cells are on a wash cloth that's just sitting on a sink or even hanging," she says. "If you must reuse, wash with hand soap and hang dry in a sunny place with air movement outside the sink, bath, and shower. Buy cheap white ones that can be washed in hot water with Borax and eco-friendly, no-fragrance soap.Skip the fabric softener because it can cause itching and rashes."
.

Hi Everyone, Happy New Year.⠀

I wanted to introduce myself to everyone who has recently followed me and to all the amazing humans who have been with me for some time.

I'm Elizabeth Trattner, goofball extraordinaire and a Doctor of Chinese and Integrative Medicine(which I take very seriously).⠀

How has everyone's first few weeks of the year been?⠀

I have been lying a little low for the past few days because every January I notice that every time I go on Instagram people are talking about:
detoxes
intentions⠀
grounding
new year, new you
manifesting
dieting
a new program
and pretty much how you should change because its January.
•⠀
Truth be told, it could be April or October or really any month of the year and I hope you all are striving for goodness all year round and not just because we are into the first week of the year.
•⠀
Forget about the fact we just got through the holidays.
That weight is going to come off
You're still amazing
Good things are coming your way.

You do not need to change one bit. In fact, whatever you decide to do whether it’s drinking celery juice or couch surfing it is perfect for you as long as you are good with yourself.

In fact, I think you're awesome!

So instead of feeling bad about the fact that you are not doing everything under the sun to change yourself, here are a few little reminders that you are wonderful:

1.Be honest.
2.Dream big, you can do it!
3.Believe in yourself
4.Keep an open mind
5.Put your needs first
6.Don't live in fear (my mantra)
7. Don't compare yourself to anyone else.
8. Everyday you start fresh, it doesn't need to be January 1st.

I love you all in January, and all the other months of the year and you are PERFECT just the way you are!

Lots of love,
Elizabeth🧚‍♂️⠀


Where do you see yourself in 2019?

Having your photography and signature acupuncture gemstone treatment featured on the cover of Where Magazine!

I am so happy to share my gemstone acupuncture treatment, The Gemstone Facial and the multi facets (pun intended!) of my practice with you for @wheremiami

Chinese Medicine,acupuncture, crystals and energy medicine rock for good reason! They all have solid clinical evidence backing their effectiveness.

Crystals seem to be just about everywhere but how do you separate science from superstition?
•⠀
💎Crystals and gemstones have been prized for thousands of years. They have been worn for years as jewelry, in crowns and used in trade.⠀
💎Crystals are minerals and since our bodies need minerals it is only natural that we gravitate to gemstones which are made of them.⠀
💎Crystals all carry a frequency and like music we are attracted to different frequencies and resonate with different ones. That is why we are drawn to them.⠀
💎In TCM gemstones and crystals are prized for healing and resilience because of the time it took them to form deep inside the earth.

If you're feeling stuck right now, I have all the beautiful tools to start your year off in the right direction.🚀💎

Whether its getting stoned with The Gemstone Facial or just getting pointed in the right direction with your health, I can help.

Email or DMme so we can start your year off right.

My heartfelt thanks to @ericacorsano for this cover and feature🙏🏻💎💗

What are the hottest beauty trends for 2019?

Facial rejuvenation, Gua Sha,supplements, botanicals, crystals(minerals) and green beauty treatments of skin conditions are becoming more popular and these are not going away any time soon because they are safe and non toxic.⠀
•⠀
Some of the best well aging treatments are steeped in ancient beauty practices. like gua sha, and plant medicine. ⠀
•⠀
Women are demanding their beauty regimes are clean and green like the food they ingest, the world they live in and want an integrative approach to their body and skin health.⠀
•⠀
Chemicals in skincare can have endocrine disruptors which accumulate in the body and cause inflammation and disease. Non toxic products do not harm our immune or other body systems.⠀
•⠀
Supplementation with vitamins and herbs can help promote optimal skin by building collagen and elastin, reducing environmental stress in the body, and enhancing the skin's microbiome.⠀
•⠀
This is an Integrative approach to well aging, clear skin and a healthy glow. Examples are vitamins, ingestable collagen ,minerals. borage oil and probiotics.⠀
•⠀
Chinese Medicine draws on proven natural remedies and techniques that have worked for thousands of years. The TCM approach addresses the internal problem, allowing the skin on the outside to then heal itself.⠀
•⠀
Cosmetic acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. It is a whole system approach designed to help the entire body look and feel younger without injectables.⠀
•⠀
Jade rollers &gua sha tools were used in TCM to treat and create circulation on the face.Done on a regular basis it reduces puffiness because it creates lymphatic drainage, increases circulation and removes toxins naturally.⠀
•⠀
Gua sha tools come in minerals like mother of pearl, jade, rose quartz, onyx. The energy of a stone along with massage enhances skin’s resilience. ⠀
•⠀
Want to build beauty from the inside out with a holistic approach to healthy and glowing skin.? DM or email me to arrange a customized approach to healthy skin for 2019 and years to come.⠀

✨Love over Fear✨
Today is a magic day: 11/11

A day to remind all over us,
No matter what you are going through;
No matter your age,
Your gender,
Your education,
That love is always around us and we need to choose love over fear.

Now is the time to remember to love yourself and not give into fear.

When you give into fear you give away your power.

Why do we give into fear and self sabotage ourselves?

Why are we afraid of being the best version of ourselves?

It is time to step into our power, our love and embrace it, today and every day.

💫✨When we embrace it magic happens.✨💫

Be the best you ,for you ,and remember love over fear.🌟

Thank you to @yogi_goddess For sharing her gorgeous image with me🙏🏻

I am over the moon to share with you all this month's Allure magazine profile of my practice of Integrative and Chinese medicine and my personal
story.

There are no words to express my gratitude to the editors at Allure: Jenny, Cotton and Brennan for this huge honor.

Never would I have believed 25 years ago when I was a model, that if someone said I would one day be in Allure that I would believe it. To be featured
for my brains and my practice is so much more powerful.

Allure is the first magazine to stop using the words" anti-aging" and it is an honor to be spotlighted as a mature woman since typically we are disregarded by society.

This features means so much to me on so many levels.

Thank you to everyone who made this happen. I am humbled and grateful beyond words for this.

This week has been like no other and one I will hold dearly for the divine timing of everything.
