Urban Remedy Founder, Neka Pasquale, shares the 10 things she relies on to kick-start her own health.

    I drink Urban Remedy juices on the daily. Most of the time I drink a Time Machine (spicy acai lemonade) for the anti-aging benefits and then I choose on of our many green juices to support overall health.

    Mineral Bath Soak at Solage

    Whenever I'm feeling run down and sluggish I drive up to Solage in Calistoga to get a mud treatment and soak in the hot mineral springs. It always makes me feel revitalized and renewed.

    Epicuren Facial

    Nothing makes my skin glow like this facial: It's hot and smells like cinnamon. I get one once a month at Evo Spa to get rid of my tired old skin cells.

    Calms Forte

    When my mind won't quiet down I pop a few Calms Forte before bed. It's a homeopathic remedy for a good night's sleep that will never leave you feeling groggy.

    Tai Chi Moves

    This Tai Chi DVD is something my son and I do together: He loves the animal poses. It's really invaluable to give your child the skills to center.

    Shine Star Capris

    I love working out in these capris: I can go to a yoga class and then live in them for the rest of the day.

    Lily's Coconut Dark Chocolate

    I love chocolate but try and stay away from sugar: One bar of this has only one gram of sugar, since it's sweetened with Stevia. All the goodness without the guilt!

    Coconut Oil

    Replace butter with Coconut oil: It has so many health properties including supporting the thyroid and immune system, it's an anti-fungal, and helps with good cholesterol. You can use in place of butter for baking and sautéing.

    Natren's Healthy Start System

    Gut health is important for a strong immune system and healthy body. You can eat fermented foods like miso, raw sauerkraut, or just go for the pills. I like this brand.

    Urban Remedy Kale Chips

    I'm super busy all week, and so Urban Remedy kale ships are my staple snack. I grab a bag and keep them on my desk for a yummy, crunchy fix. One bag is like eating a kale salad.

    BKR Water Bottle

    I love carrying this glass water bottle around to remind me to stay hydrated. It's the perfect size and super durable for glass.

    Dry Brush

    When I was in Turkey years ago I got a Turkish scrub. It kind of hurt, but the women working there had the softest, clearest skin I have ever seen. The proof is in the pudding. Scrub everyday before your shower.
