Guest Bio: Sophie Uliano, Natural Health & Beauty Expert
Sophie-Uliano croppedNew York Times bestselling author Sophie Uliano is a leading expert in the field of natural health and beauty, who takes a down-to-earth approach to beauty focusing on what’s truly healthy. Her journey started nearly a decade ago – Sophie was raising her toddler daughter in urban sprawl of Los Angeles, a transplant from the idyllic English countryside. And something just didn’t feel right. She saw smog everywhere she went, her skin was showing premature signs of aging, she worried about her daughter playing in the park because of the chemicals used to treat the grass …  The evidence for change was all around her.

So she sat down and began to read. And read. And read. And what she found terrified and inspired her. So, she wrote her first book, Gorgeously Green, which was featured by Julia Roberts on The Oprah Winfrey Show. This appearance was a wake-up call for America, and even in the hours after it aired, she knew she wasn’t alone in my concerns.

Thus was born Gorgeously Green and the thriving online community. has become a trusted resource and voice in the field of holistic wellness, bringing together a community of like-minded women and providing in-depth articles, reviews, beauty picks, recipes, and more covering the latest beauty trends. She has written three subsequent books, Do It Gorgeously, The Gorgeously Green Diet and most recently Gorgeous For Good.

Sophie regularly hosts wellness retreats and intensives across the United States, and is very excited about her upcoming weekend wellness intensive June 9-10 in Los Angeles and her wellness retreat October 21-25 in Palm Springs.

EP 39 - How to Build a Wellness Routine that WORKS
There’s a lot of talk about what you should do for your health. How about a wellness routine that actually works?

Sophie Ulliano recommends four parts of a wellness foundation.

  1. Mindfulness. Start each day with meditation or prayer. Offer up an intention for the day.
  2. Nutrition. Eat a diet that is primarily plant-based. Morning smoothies are a great way to consume many plants at once.
  3. Fitness. Get 40 to 60 minutes of moderate to intense exercise every day.
  4. Self care. It’s easy to put yourself last. Take leisure time to care for yourself.
Don’t set yourself up to fail by overwhelming yourself. Reframe the changes so you think about wellness like a bank account with these four parts. Put small yet equal amounts of attention into your wellness account every day. You may not want to do these things every day but your body will thank you.

Listen as Sophie joins Dr. Bond to share how you can fill your wellness bank in the first 90 minutes of your day.
