Keep Your Skin Optimal

Skin Care Treatment

Did you know that your skin is not only the largest organ in your body, it is also the largest detoxifying organ in your body? Your skin helps rid your body of impurities and toxins on a regular basis. Your skin also acts as a protective barrier–it provides protection from trauma, temperature variations, micro-organisms, radiation, and chemicals. Your skin also regulates temperature, affects fluid balance, influences peripheral circulation, and also gives you the sensation of heat, cold, touch and pain.

It is obvious that taking care of your skin results in overall improved health. You can not afford to ignore skin health if you desire Optimal Health.

Here are some easy things to do in order to keep your skin functioning Optimally:

1. Eat a clean diet. Remember that your skin detoxifies. If you consume a lot of sugar, processed foods, chemicals (.ie. non organic foods), alcohol, soda, etc., then your skin must work hard to eliminate these toxins. This can result in acne, reddened skin, and/or skin that looks older than it is. Healthy looking skin starts from the inside out. Your skin reflects your inner health. Focus on eating a diet full of whole organic foods–foods made in nature, not man made. Eat healthy organic sources of protein, oils, and fat and eat a variety of organic vegetables, and fruits. Avoid sugar, sodas, juices, alcohol, baked goods, processed meats, pastas, and other man made foods. Not only will your skin look younger and healthier, you will feel younger and more vital.

2. Hydrate!! Drink water daily. Your skin requires water in order to function properly. The rule of thumb is to drink about half your body weight in ounces. I.e. if you weigh 150 pounds, that is 75 ounces of water. You will know when you have consumed enough water when your urine is a faint yellowish color, not a dark yellow. (be aware that certain supplements do change the color of urine).

3. Dry brush your skin daily before your shower or bath. Dry brushing helps to improve circulation and it stimulates your lymphatic system to eliminate toxins. It also helps to remove dull, dead skin cells and encourages cell renewal. Dry brushing is only for the body from the neck down. Brush in gently, circular motions toward the heart. Start at your feet and work up to the top of your legs, then brush your hands up to your shoulders. Then, brush your buttocks up to your neck followed by your stomach area.

4. Take an Epsom or Magnesium salt bath or float on a regular basis. Magnesium is very calming to the body and it will absorb into your body through bathing. It is helpful in relaxing muscles and the mind. Regular soaks also help to clear toxins from the pores in your skin. Try soaking in a bath with 4 cups of Epsom or Magnesium salt for 20-30 minutes 2-3 times per week. If you desire a full body relaxation experience, go to the Float Experience in Temecula (or find a location near you that offers floats). Floats give you 60-90 minutes of floating in about 700+ pounds of Epsom salt in an environment that removes the pressure of gravity along with sound and light. It is a truly rejuvenating experience!

5. Care for your skin on a daily basis. Routine skin care is important for removing the toxins that we encounter on a daily basis. It also allows for the removal of dead skin and encourages new skin growth. People who perform daily skin care have younger, healthier looking skin. Your skin care routine should include cleansing, toning, and moisturizing in the morning and evening. It is best to use natural botanically based organic products.

6. Get a facial on a monthly basis. Facials are not just for pampering, they are an important part of healthy skin care. Both men and women should get regular facials in order to look and feel their best as they age. Regular facials can prevent and treat acne, minimize the signs of rosacea, and keep your skin looking younger and more vibrant.

A facial is a skincare treatment done by an esthetician. The esthetician uses customized skincare formulations and are best done with natural ingredients to prevent skin irritations from harmful chemical-filled products.

Deep cleansing, detoxifying, moisturizing, sloughing off the dead and dull skin surface, hydrating and replenishing with infused oxygen are among the amazing things can be achieved with a professional facial. Your esthetician will determine the best facial for your specific needs.

7. Be cautious of the things that you put on your skin. Your skin absorbs whatever is put on it in about 28 seconds. (Try putting a clove of garlic between your toes and you will find that you can actually taste the garlic!). Use coconut oil as a moisturizer or some other organic plant based lotion that is not full of toxic chemicals. Avoid toxic perfumes –essential oils are a wonderful alternative. Research the ingredients in your skin care, sunscreen, shaving cream, and anything else that you put on your skin. Remember that everything you put onto your skin has to be dealt with by your body. By minimizing the toxins that you put on (and into) your body, you will minimize the stress on these organs and allow them to deal with the unavoidable toxins of daily living and functioning.

Your skin is not just something to look at, it is a functioning organ and it must be taken care of. By following these 7 tips, you will find that your skin looks healthier and vital. You will also find that you feel better overall–inside and out!!

Get More Energy

How do you feel right now in your body? Are feeling electric? Are you feeling activated? Are you feeling full of creativity?

Many Americans are not feeling any of this. Many Americans are not feeling good at all. A recent global study, completed in 2013, demonstrated that 95% of the world is ill! In the holistic world of natural health and prevention focused care or education, we know most of this is due to lack of useful knowledge. Many of the common items we suffer from are: Back pain, Stomach aches, Headaches, Lack of Sleep, Lack of Energy, Brain fog, and Anxiety.

Are you suffering?

Would you like a different option than simply covering it up and waiting for it to come back?
Is it worth some of your time, money, and effort if the results could last for months to years?

I hope the answer to those last three questions was yes!! A big YESS!!

Your body is made up of a community of trillion of cells. Your community can look and feel like a master planned community with perfectly flowing streets, active businesses, happy community participants, minimal trash and pollution, a proverbial paradise of ease. However, we have not been told how to do this effectively, so for many people we are owner operators of distressed, broken down, polluted, stressed, hurried very despotic communities of cells. In this scenario each cell is trying very hard to get a breath of air, drink of clean water, or a single molecule of nutrition. Things are not looking very good. Although the best news to hear is that this can be changed. You do have a choice. You can choose to begin again. You can start today by learning new concepts, enhanced function, and then benefit from the ability to learn how to facilitate better healthier cells by having improved and functional habits within your lifestyle.

5 Healthy Tips For The Holidays!

Published on November 28, 2017 by

Life tends to be stressful these days and the holiday season seems to add to this stress for most people. This added stress can adversely affect your health, sleep, and vitality. Why not take some time during this holiday season to care for you so that you can protect your short and long term health and vitality

These tips are great all year long and especially important during the holidays:

  • 1. Remember to breathe! It seems like such a silly thing to ask you to do, but most people do not breathe properly. Most people are breathing shallowly and this causes anxiety, high blood pressure, fatigue, etc. Be aware of your breath pattern. Take a moment and make sure that you breathe deeply and slowly. Do this throughout the day–it only takes a moment and costs nothing, yet it can have incredible health benefits and helps you to feel relaxed.
  • 2. Limit the sweets and alcohol. I understand that this is a time where goodies surround us all. Be picky and make conscious choices about the treats that you eat and drink. It is all too easy to eat and drink without thinking about the consequences. It’s ok to have some fun, just take a moment and make a choice rather than just reacting to what’s around you. Avoid going to holiday parties starving–that will help you to avoid rash choices.
  • 3. Plan some down time. The holidays are a time where invitations will seemingly come out of the air. By booking time for you in your calendar, it will be easier to have time to renew. We all need down time. As much fun as events may be, going to everything may drain you of desired energy. Take a few hours, or even a day, to say yes to an invite. Go to the events you really want to go to and be ok saying no to the things that feel are too much. It’s ok to take time for you–it is the smart thing to do.
  • 4. Get a Myers cocktail and Glutathione IV. The high dose Vitamin C and variety of nutrients in the Myers cocktail has been shown to be a great immune booster. It can help you to stay healthy and fight the viruses that surround us. I always get one before travel and at the first signs of an illness.The extra stress during the holiday season can weaken our immune system and make it easier to get sick. Getting IV nutritional support can help your body stay strong. Adding Glutathione to the Myers cocktail is a potent combination. Glutathione is a strong anti-oxidant and gives additional immune support.
  • 5. Keep exercising if you already do. If not, add some activity to your day. It is all too easy to get busy and not exercise. Regular activity helps your mind to relax and your body to function properly. Any activity is better than nothing. Even five minutes of some sort of activity offers a health and mind benefit. Avoid using the holidays as an excuse not to exercise. This is a time of year that requires regular activity. When you feel any stress, take a quick walk. It greatly minimizes the stress.
Health Tips

The above five tips are easy to do and easy not to do. It comes down to making a choice to take care of yourself. Do you want to feel and look your best? If the answer is yes, then start with these simple activities. By being aware of your daily choices and taking these small steps, you will find that you are better able to withstand the holidays. You will feel more relaxed and also more vital and energetic. You will also have developed healthy habits for the new year. You will feel better now and in the long run.
