Green Maxi Dress | Veeda

In Fashion, Outfit of the day by wR23Fs2Sqi50 Comments

Hi guys! I hope you’re having a great week. I’m getting a bit personal with you today. For most of my life, I’ve suffered from gastrointestinal issues and in the last eight years, it has only gotten worse. Naturally, I relied on the medical system for help, as most of us do. And after having every possible test done, I was placed on medication that caused me to be severely deficient in iron which isn’t good when you already have a blood disorder…not a fun time. Anyhow, this taught me that I need to be more proactive with my health so with the help of a naturopath, I have learned to avoid certain foods that I’m intolerant to.

This was a wake up call for me, understanding what I put into my body affects my overall health. So I said goodbye to processed foods and hello to clean eating. But I didn’t stop there. I also took a hard look at products I was using on my body because after all, they get absorbed. So when Veeda approached me to try their 100% natural cotton hypoallergenic toxin-free tampons, pads and liners, I jumped at the opportunity. Did you know most conventional brands contain dioxins from the bleaching process, pesticides, herbicide residues, synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances and dyes. Kinda scary when you think about how often we use tampons, pads and liners. Just think, that stuff is going into our bodies! That’s why I love companies like Veeda that offer safe alternatives and peace of mind. I highly recommend you give Veeda a try, both the pads and liners were comfortable and leak free for me. On a side note, men have it so easy πŸ™‚ Veeda products can be ordered directly from their website and for more info, check out their FAQS page.
