The skin, lungs, kidney, colon and liver are your body’s main pathways of detoxification and elimination. Ideally, they are built to filter and remove waste from the body. But modern living - from pollution to a Standard American Diet - can clog these pathways, making it harder for your body to efficiently process waste. <strong>To support your body's natural detoxing process, we've designed a custom blended detox tea tonic.
When we talk about wellness and self-care, we often emphasize making small shifts in habits, like drinking more water and getting more sleep. Mindset shifts are also important, and today we have invited NYC-based therapist Patty Matz to talk about how having a positive body image is truly a self-care gift you can give yourself every day. The beauty, fashion, and diet industries in our society all promote the sense that we are not acceptable the way we are. Patty challenges the notion of a perfect body standard and gives us practical tips on how to love the skin you’re in.
Eating for fertility is not unlike eating a regular healthy diet, but there are a few things in particular you want to look out for. And it is truly never too early to start planning for this stage of a mom-to-be’s life. In fact, the food you eat today affects eggs and sperms for the next 90 days.

Our founder Caroll Lee kicks off our Provenance Book Club series in a conversation with postpartum care expert Kimberly Ann Johnson about her new book, The Fourth Trimester.

We are blessed to be part of the wellness community in NYC. A few weeks back we had the opportunity to attend an event and meet one of our favorite women in this community, Rachelle Robinett - herbalist, holistic medicine practitioners, and founder of Supernatural Herbal Cafe at the WOOM Center. We were inspired and enlightened from the experience. More importantly we knew we had to learn more about Rachelle.

I’ve just returned from Natural Products Expo West, the largest natural, organic and healthy products event on the planet. Over 85,000 attendees descended on Anaheim, CA to see the latest and greatest in the healthy food and supplements industry. Thousands of exhibitors were there, from large well-known brands such as Stonyfield and Applegate, to little guys debuting their first natural product. There were also many seminars designed to educate businesses on sustainability, diet, entrepreneur’s success and failures, and wellness lifestyle trends. After sampling hundreds of products and attending fascinating lectures, here are my takeaways on the wellness trends to look out for this year.

Why mask symptoms when you can fix the root cause? Our founder, Caroll Lee, checked in with her favorite TCM practitioner, Sandra Lanshin Chiu, to speak more on TCM and its relationship with your natural beauty routine.
