The power of adjusting your lifestyle, by expert Joep Rovers

Posted by Tobias Bijma on

I am an orthomolecular health specialist and have done a lot regarding health, studies, and much more to learn as much as I can.

A quote that suits me is "one size fits none", this is because I believe there is not one solution that solves all people's problems. For many people, it is testing and finding out what suits you and ultimately finding the right solution for yourself. 

I have suffered from eczema in my face and chest for many years, which is now luckily gone after adjusting my lifestyle. This is also one of the reasons that I use the Skin Recovering Silk Pillowcase. People often underestimate that the pillowcase you lie on has an impact on your skin. Your skin recovers while you sleep and if you sleep on a pillowcase packed with bacteria, which then reach your skin, might not be the best for the condition of your skin. This is the reason I use the Skin Recovering Silk Pillowcase from Dore & Rose. 

I also use the sleeping mask, which I mainly use during summer, because I want my room to be as dark as possible in order to improve my sleep. The light that enters your bedroom has an impact on the quality of your sleep. Due to the light-blocking properties of the mask, it helps to optimize my sleep. 

For people with skin conditions, it is certainly a good idea to start sleeping on silk, especially the unique fabric from Dore & Rose, as their products are treated with silver ions. This gives an extra antibacterial effect, killing 99.7% of all bacteria. If the skin barrier is often damaged and no longer works, sleeping on the Skin Recovering Silk Pillowcase can support and restore the skin. 

What are other things you recommend for a healthy lifestyle? 

The most important thing, in my opinion, is a lot of daylight. Hormones are controlled by daylight and walking barefoot has immense positive properties for your body. This is how you let your body connect with the earth. This is the strongest antioxidant that exists. Stress in the body causes free radicals, which release bad molecules that attack the good molecules. To decrease this process, we need antioxidants. The free radicals in the body caused by stress, create positively charged electrons. The earth is charged with negative ions, meaning it can bring the body back into balance. When looking at the foods you consume, I advise only eating foods that are by mother nature. Everything man-made, is a no-go for me.
