SKIN BLEMISHES AND BEAUTIFUL SKIN PROGRAM

The skin reflects the inner health of the body. It is quick to be affected by changes in both our external and internal environments. Since our skin is our interface to the outer world and leaves a lasting impression upon others, the need for proper skin - care and natural skin-care products is a must in keeping the skin looking clear, healthy and youthful. Your skin not only acts to protect and cover your internal organs but is responsible for many physiological body functions. We continually damage and assault our skin with harmful detergents, toxic substance such as artificial colors, fragrance, alcohol, animal by-product, petrolatum, mineral oils and other damaging ingredients that are in so many synthetic cosmetics and skin-care products on the market today. These cheap and unnecessary substance increase the risk of free radical damage, which is the number one destroyer of healthy skin cells and contributes to premature aging.

This program will enable you to:

  • Reduce problem skin diseases (eczema, contact dermatitis, hives, psoriasis, acne vulgaris, acne rosacea)
  • Prevent further free radical damage causing ageing skin such as wrinkles, pigmentation
  • Improve blood circulation to the skin
  • Improve elimination of toxins through the skin
  • Learn dietary and lifestyle factors that are relevent to the health of your skin
  • Understand any hormonal influences that disrupt the condition of your skin
  • Improves skin elasticity and firmness
  • Increases skin hydration
  • Stimulate the growth of collagen fibres

The vital Anti Ageing and sex hormones have an important role to play in protecting the skin against the ravaging effects of aging. Certain herbs and nutraceuticals can increase these naturally occuring hormones. Juice and vegetable therapy are powerful therapies for increasing enzyme production in the body cells to influence genetic expression of certain anti-ageing hormones.

ANTI-AGEING PROGRAM

We have all heard in the media over recent years about respected researchers engaged in serious discussions regarding the prospects for prolongued living. Diseases of the 21st centuary which were once viewed consequences of the ageing process such as cancer, osteoporosis, type II diabetes, stroke, and autoimmune diseases, now have been shown to be preventable, and with early detection, even reversible.

Prevention of these age related diseases are part of the focus of this program. My own research in Dietary Fibre and Colorectoral Cancer has also demonstrated that altering diet can act to turn on specific gene pathways and express targetted proteins that can protect the bowel.

This program will enable you to:

  • Enjoy profound improvements in your energy, health and well-being
  • Boost your brain power and experience greater mental clarity
  • Restore your Anti Aging hormones to youthful levels
  • Protect yourself age related inflammatory diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lose weight
  • Prevent heart disease and diabetes
  • Dramatically increase your sexual vitality

Part of our program involves specific markers for biological ageing and new released "investigations" through genetic and proteomic testing procedures to identify genetic variants (polymorphisms) that are expressed in the human genome, in particular enhancing our understanding of the aetiology of polygenetic disorders with complex inheritance patterns such as cancer, oestrogen dominance, diabetes and hypertension. These procedures help us build a preventative program backed by reliable and accurate testing.

As an example, approximately 1 in 10 women will develop oestrogen dominance side-effects when taking progesterone, due to a progesterone receptor (PGR) polymorphism. The progesterone receptor mediates the physiologic effects of progesterone. This means that progesterone replacement does not always give the expected results, highlighting the importance of individualised prescribing.

Optimum health and longevity are inseparable. The program aims for you not just to age long and well, but to remain healthy, happy and vital until the end. By supporting the Anti-Ageing program, you are supporting your natural healing ability, preventing free radical oxidation, improving organ and glandular function and energy pathways, and protecting your cells.

After a few months on your anti-ageing program, you will feel a lot better! And as the months go by, you will know that you are achieving optimal results. You will have more energy, your skin will glow, you will have a sparkle in your eyes, you will get less colds and flus and you will notice that your healing time has increased dramatically. The most important change will be in your attitude. You will feel more positive in your daily life, and this is the greatest gift of all, because your life is worth it!

DETOX THE BODY AND SOUL PROGRAM

Structured detox programs can make it much easier for you to instil long-term change in your eating habits. The short-term 'slap bang' approach is not what it's all about. Detoxing is about improving the effectiveness of your elimination organs.

Based on the idea of ridding ourselves of toxins, detox programs aim to help the digestive and waste systems enjoy an easier ride. Give your body a toxin break and your energy levels will benefit.

You can assist natural detoxification processes that must occur for survival by easing their workload. If we support the detox organs and cut back on foods that overload us, we give our body a better opportunity to get rid of these waste products and thoroughly clean itself.

Signs of overload include blotchy skin, coated tongue, bad breath, feeling bloated, constipation, fatigue, poor immune function and recurring allergies. These point to the fact that our elimination organs are not functioning as well as they can.

For the first few days, your energy levels may drop a bit because you’re denying yourself of the usual stimulants your body is used to (such as sugar). And if coffee is your daily indulgence, withdrawal may bring on a slight headache and mild fogginess. When the body moves beyond this temporary stage, this side effect gives way to a feeling of more energy, clearer thinking and wellbeing.

Also bear in mind that your skin may encounter a minor breakout - as it’s a crucial organ for elimination, detoxification through the skin can lead to a few pimples. But by the end of the detox, people say others are commenting their skin is clearer and their eyes brighter.

Panchakarma (the five actions or modalities) is coming soon. It is a collection of purification techniques that Ayurveda medicine prescribes for some diseases and for periodic cleansing. A course of Pancharkarma typically includes a short-term dietary prescription, specialised detoxification massage, herbs, and may include purgatives, sweat baths, medicated enemas, and nasal cleansing.

STRESS AND ADRENAL DEPLETION PROGRAM

According to a study at Duke University, 19 year olds who reported feeling excessive anger were more likely to have risk factors for heart disease by age 40 including obesity, high cholesterol, and cigarette smoking. Learning to relax early in life may prevent heart disease in later life.

Are you really tired and cannot get enough rest? Do you always complain of being sick? Do you suffer from PMS or hot flashes? Do you have a short temper, feel moody, forget things and need to eat sugary foods and coffee to keep going?

Adrenal burnout has become a common occurance in today's stressed out, over-worked, emotionally exhausted world. As we continue to suffer from continuous physical, emotional and chemical stress, we are affecting our body's chemistry on a cellular level and it is the cells in the adrenal glands that take the brunt of these stresses. All disease starts from the body being in a state of dis-ease; being in a state of constant fatigue is a sure sign of burdening our body in this way. Prolonged stress keeps the body in a constant and heightened fight or flight' state; if allowed to continue it would eventually compromise the adrenal function. The adrenals are the glands that sit near the top of each kidney. The inner part (the medulla) secretes hormones, including adrenaline and corticosteroid that control blood pressure, heart rate and sweating. They also act as chemical messengers; initiate immune responses; regulate blood sugar levels and produce much of the digestive juices used in breaking down foods. As they respond to stress, these hormones elevate blood sugar and blood pressure, and promote energy production. Adrenalin or epinephrine are used in emergencies, when the adrenals become depleted, the body is unable to handle stress and this can lead to serious illness.

SLEEP HEALTH PROGRAM

Sleep refreshes us! Sleep is essential to our survival. And although we spend 33% of our lives asleep, we barely give it a moment's notice....until we can't sleep. For millions of people, the consequences of a poor night's sleep – higher stress, increased mistakes, difficulty concentrating – are every day occurrences. Sleep Health include diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of patients with all types of sleep disorders including obstructive sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia, and restless legs syndrome. The program also aims to regulate circadium rhythms for hormonal regulation, to optimise human growth hormone release and control weight gain.

Clinical studies provides the latest in a flurry of evidence suggesting that the obesity epidemic is being driven, at least in part, by a corresponding decrease in the average number of hours that we are sleeping, possibly by disrupting hormones that regulate appetite.

Physiologic studies suggest that a sleep deficit may put the body into a state of high alert, increasing the production of stress hormones and driving up blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart attacks and strokes. Moreover, people who are sleep-deprived have elevated levels of substances in the blood that indicate a heightened state of inflammation in the body, which has also recently emerged as a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes.

WELLNESS ZONE PROGRAM

Staying in the Wellness zone helps you to lose weight and keep it off, improve your energy, enhance your skin's appeareance, improve your digestion, maintain healthy cardiovascular function, control blood sugar levels, improve your moods and libido, and prevent the onset of age related diseases.

When we are in our 20's and 30's we think we will live forever. Not much thought is given to aging. Usually only when we reach our 40's do we first become conscious of our own mortality. Mid-Life can be a great opportunity to stand back and decide which direction you will choose to live: either towards increasing chronic disease, or towards well-being and longevity.

Our Wellness Program is divided into 3 steps:

  1. The first step is for the client to undergo a complete Health Profile. This gives an accurate picture of a person's current (and sometimes future) health status. A series of biomarkers give an objective way of measuring and monitoring a client on their road to well-being. Some tests may be ordered to assess current health status and genetic variances.
  2. We want every client to "look and feel their best" The client is educated and given all the vital information and tools needed to implement their wellness and longevity programs. A health "mentor" is really a coach. We teach you to understand what foods are healthy for your constitution type. This is why "one size fits all" self-prescribing of supplements is not advocated by professional members of the health profession.
  3. Monitoring is important to document that your wellness and longevity program is working. Select biomarkers and self-evaluations are repeated periodically to demonstrate your progress.

These steps will be achieved by implementing detoxification, nutrition, exercise, and mind-body health assessments.

PERSONAL IRIDOLOGY PROGRAM

Iridology is the scientific analysis of patterns and structures in the iris of the eye, which reveal our health and the condition of our body. The iris reveals our unique body constitution, inherent strengths and weaknesses, health levels, and transitions that take place in our body according to our way of life. Iridology is a true “holistic tool”. A full iridology analysis along with tongue and nail diagnosis is performed with each booked initial consultation at the clinic.

Iridology reports can be generated but need to be ordered in advance. Your unique 25-30page reports can be offered on CD or hard-copy bound. Please click here for more information.
