I’m so excited this month to debut our new “Bloom Blog,” and to share here one of our first stories “What‘s In My Beach Bag.” Patients often ask me, “What do you do to maintain your health?“ Well, in the summer, part of that answer lies in my beach bag.

1. Oxicell:
One of my absolute favorites- I never go to the beach without it! It contains topical Glutathione and Superoxide Dismutase, which are some of the most powerful antioxidants known to man. Which help to shield our skin, right down to our cells, from oxidative damage from the sun. I mix it with my sunscreen.

2. Zinc-oxide-based sunscreen: I use Seahorse from Hawaii. I mix it with a pump of the oxicell and put it on my face, neck, décolletage, and shoulders for sun protection
3. Large Hat: This is an essential. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a hat connoisseur - I'm usually wearing one when I'm not at work. My big straw hat (from Anthropologie) really helps keep the fastest-aging zones the face, neck, décolletage -protected.

4. Frankincense Essential Oil
: I never leave home without a bottle of Frankincense. In fact, I carry it year-round. With properties of antioxidant protection, anti-inflammatory, anti aging, and immune boosting - Frankincense oil is an absolute favorite of mine. I mix it in with Oxicell and sunscreen, and apply to my face and neck. In the mornings, I mix it with coconut oil and apply it head to toe. I also put two drops under my tongue a few times a day for internal support.

5. Ortho Digestzyme by Orthomolecular:
This digestive enzyme is also a constant staple in my bag all year round. It has all of the best enzymes to help me digest my food and absorb all nutrients - it even helps stave off bacterial and yeast overgrowth in my GI tract. Love it!

6. Cosmic Code: A book by my favorite author - Zecharia Sitchin. I am obsessed with ancient cultures and the concept of extraterrestrial visitation in ancient times. Zecharia is the pioneer who first wrote about this in the 1970's, after deciphering Sumerian tablets that are over 6,000 years old. Yes, I may definitely be a geek...
7. Bebel Gilberto music: She is one of my most fave musicians. You will hear her music frequently in Bloom. She is a Bossa Nova Queen - and her smooth, eloquent Brazilian tunes soothe my summer soul.


Bloom now carries some of Dr. Ward’s favorite drinks: Kombucha, coconut water, ocean-sourced water, Beaming Juices and GoodOnYa Hydrate!

Both of our Kombucha brands: Health-Ade and GT’s Synergy, are brewed, bottled, and distributed 100% locally (Southern California). Our coconut waters: Harmless Harvest and INVO - naturally low in sodium, calories, and high in naturally-occurring electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which helps keep your brain, nerves, heart, and muscles functioning optimally. 

Also on our shelves: GoodOnYa Hydrate - the only certified-organic, non-GMO-certified sports drink that contains all of the necessary electrolytes while not overloading on sugar. GoodOnYa Hydrate’s minerals are sun-dried from the Great Salt Lake and totally unprocessed, which means your body will naturally recognize them and be able to absorb them. Real organic fruit and the highest quality stevia on the market are also used.

And finally, making their top shelf” debut are our Beaming Juices -- all are cold-pressed using a hydraulic press and contain only organic fruits and vegetables, which means you are getting fresh, delicious, nutrient-dense juices and smoothies.




Clary Calm
In the spirit of hormone awareness, we are dedicating our Oil of the Month to those whom may need a little more than wine to take the edge off.  Clary Calm is a proprietary blend of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils that have been traditionally used to balance hormones and manage symptoms of PMS and the transitional phases of menopause.  Clary Calm is a topical blend of clary sage, lavender, bergamot, Roman chamomile, cedarwood, ylang ylang, geranium, fennel, carrot seed, palmarosa, and vitex that provides a temporary respite from cramps, nausea, hot flashes, and the emotional swings which are sometimes associated with regular hormone cycles in women.!
