Sparkle Bites: What I Learned From My BioBalance Visit With Hindy Weber

A few months ago, I attended (and co-hosted) an event for BioBalance Institute. I first heard about this place through my friend, Alyanna. She said she was going to the institute to help manage her stress and figure out how to take the right supplements for her body.

I’m normally iffy about places that sell supplements or “wellness” in general because we’re at an age where everyone’s coming up with their own formula. But I actually trust Hindy’s dedication to healthy living (I mean, she did move to the province to grow her own food!) and Alyanna’s recos (seriously, this girl can make me buy anything because it’s usually worth it).

Taking the InBody test! It determines things like the muscle-fat ratio in your body, how hydrated you are, and how much fat is surrounding your organs.

During the intimate event, I got to chat with Hindy and learned so many things about how BioBalance can help you take care of your body. They have several tests you can take to analyze what’s really going on in your body (check them out here), but my favorite would have to be the Nutrient and Metabolic test. It analyzes the specific level of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in your body (view the detailed list of what they’ll test here—you’ll see why it’s worth it!).

Before BioBalance, I was guilty of self-diagnosing my supplements. When I needed to sleep, I’d take melatonin. Dealing with hair fall? Then load up on Biotin. But guess what? Your body might actually have enough of these nutrients and you just don’t know it! Or maybe, your body just can’t absorb what you’re feeding it either. You can’t really know for sure, so if you feel like you’re doing everything you can health-wise and aren’t getting the results you want, then it may be time to take an actual test.  Continue reading

Since beauty is also about creating wellness in your body, I decided to go to Onelife Studio earlier for a suspension training class (it’s similar to TRX). I haven’t been working out at all, so I was excited to get moving again.

I was thrilled that I was able to do an inversion, but believe me, there were puh-lenty of times when I wanted to stab my teacher during class. Haha, especially when she asked me to hold lunges and planks for what seems like a bajillion seconds! But here’s what’s funny—my nails actually helped motivate me as I worked out! I know it sounds silly, but looking at them really helped me keep going.
