Now more than ever, the practice of mindfulness can be of tremendous benefit to our health and wellbeing.
 
Meditation is incredibly beneficial for the mind and body. Research has demonstrated that meditation can improve mood, reduce anger, anxiety, stress, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, promotes emotional health, enhances self-awareness, helps fight addiction, can even be useful for pain relief, and so much more.
 
If we find ourselves being controlled by our environment, past negative experiences, and we keep replaying the same emotional connection to each experience over and over again, we can’t expect our lives to change. Instead, we will find ourselves attracting more of the same, keeping us in a constant state of victimhood, and blocking the way for any positive changes to enter our lives.
 
Taking control and allowing space to become aware of our thoughts and feelings provides us with an opportunity to break negative experiences, belief systems, and emotions that no longer serve us. This self-awareness is a gift that liberates us and enables us to move through life with ease.
Life will always have its challenges, but what meditation does is help us to face them with calm and clarity. And it enables us to resolve issues and obstacles that stand in our way with minimal effort and stress.
 
So why not commit yourself to have a go. Find a space every day where you can sit comfortably and quietly for around 10- 20min, close your eyes, and repeat a mantra in your mind, eg. ‘I AM’, or choose a word, then repeat this continuously as this will help you to relinquish the chitter-chatter. You can’t think and say the mantra at the same time, so keep repeating the mantra. The more you do this, the more you will master your mind and experience a sense of peace.
 
And by doing this every day, I promise you your life will change in the most wondrous ways.
 
Persistence is key.
 
With Gratitude,

Corneotherapy is a remedial skin treatment methodology with its core principle being the repair and maintenance of the skin barrier defence systems. As the name suggests, Corneotherapy is closely related to Corneobiology, which is the physiological, biologic and biochemical processes of the stratum corneum; the outermost layer of the epidermis.

It is now widely understood that the outer layer of corneocytes of the stratum corneum is a biologically active cellular tissue. The co-inventor of Retin-A, U.S. dermatologist Dr Albert Kligman and his partners discovered that the stratum corneum, and the lipid barrier that keeps it intact, play a significant role in skin health; it can send many signals to the underlying living epidermis and influences the regenerative processes in deeper layers of the skin.
This understanding of skin health, along with appropriate interventions and topical treatments is an ensemble of therapies that Dr Kligman labelled “Corneotherapy”.

With this knowledge, Corneotherapy centric therapeutic interventions have shown that optimally functioning barrier defences, including a healthy innate immune system can prevent or reduce structural inflammation that is the precursor to many anomalous skin conditions such as EFAD, Xerosis, Itchyosis, and Eczema.
These preventative interventions are primarily directed to correction and restoration of the stratum corneum and barrier defence systems that have been rendered defective or impaired by disease, or intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
The correct application of Corneotherapeutic principles have been shown to restore homeostasis and an improved function of the entire integument; protecting against harmful substances and microorganisms that can trigger these anomalous conditions.
The principles of Corneotherapy can also be applied not just the correction of skin conditions, but for the supportive prevention of skin problems; the prevention of premature skin aging is an inherent outcome of this approach.

A key principle of Corneotherapy is to keep the epidermis intact at all times, with the therapeutic actions working from the outer layers of the epidermis inward. This approach of retaining the integrity of the epidermis ensures the skins defence and immune systems are not stimulated unnecessarily.

Corneotherapy is also an individualized approach to skin care and treatment, following a logical path that investigates and defines the causes of the conditions before selecting appropriate interventions and therapeutic applications in a sequence that achieves the best outcome. This contrasts with the more simplistic approach of treating symptoms without determining the causes.

One of the major advantages of Corneotherapy is that it is largely free of side effects in comparison with a treatment with topical pharmaceuticals. Preventively applied Corneotherapy practices may extend the intervals between flare-ups and reduce or even avoid the application of conventional dermatics such as steroid or cortisone-based creams.

It is these two characteristics; (1) taking time to thoroughly investigate the causes of the conditions and (2) not just treating the symptoms with repeated application of products with pharmacological action; that perhaps define Corneotherapy from more conventional approaches.

 

 

The real cause of eczema and psoriasis stems from a low-grade herpetic viral infection inside the liver and not the immune system attacking the skin as many experts believe. The Medium Medium has brought this information to light and has helped millions of sufferers to heal from these and many other debilitating conditions.  His medical intuition on the true causes of hundreds of medical mysteries is unprecedented. He has also become an invaluable resource to doctors worldwide who need help solving their most difficult cases.

He goes on to explain that people who have eczema and psoriasis, have the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) present in their system as do most of us. However, there will also be heavy metals present such as Copper and Mercury in the liver. It’s not difficult to have a build-up of toxic heavy metals in your body for viruses to feed on. This can be passed down through your family line or you can be exposed to it in daily life. The copper pots and pans we eat from, aluminum foil and containers . So too are copper pipes. Pesticides are another source of toxic copper that build up in the liver from years of eating conventional food products and being exposed to pesticides used on your fruits and veggies.

So, what happens is when the virus feeds off the toxic copper and mercury, the dermatoxins then build up and exits the liver.   When the liver releases dermatoxins, they move out of the liver and into the blood stream through the hepatic portal vein (the main vein from the liver). The hepatic portal vein brings the dermatoxins to the heart via the blood where they’re circulated around the rest of the body. Your body tries to protect you by getting those poisons out, so it eliminates the dermatoxins by pushing them out through the skin, presenting as eczema or psoriasis. Unfortunately, this truth is completely opposite of the standard belief in the medical world.

Here are some foods that should be avoided to help heal your eczema and psoriasis, they are eggs and dairy, including milk, cheese, butter, yogurt and kefir. Gluten should also be avoided as well as anything containing corn and canola oil which is found in many food products. You will be surprised to find how many products on your supermarket shelves contain these ingredients.

Also try to lower the fats in your diet, to give the liver a break and significantly increase the number of fruits, leafy greens and vegetables you eat.

Drinking 470ml of pure celery juice every morning on an empty stomach is a miracle cure for eczema and psoriasis. Do not add any water or other juices to it for optimal results. Also wait 20-30min before consuming anything else.

Consider adding supplements such as B12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, Zinc liquid sulfate, Vitamin C  or Liposomal C,  Spirulina and Barley grass juice powder.

This is the Metal Detox smoothie I have everyday,  it’s amazing!

Nearly everyone is deficient in vitamin B12 today.  So let me share with you a some interesting information about the healing benefits of Vitamin B12,  as stated by my medical guru, the Medical Medium, Anthony Williams.

Apparently, even if you get a blood test that shows your vitamin B12 levels are normal, that doesn’t mean it’s usable B12 that’s absorbing where it needs to in your body. Your central nervous system, liver, or other organs may still be severely deficient, and a deficiency of the right kind of B12, which is B12 that’s a combination of both methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, sets the stage for all kinds of symptoms and conditions to develop or worsen. Lack of B12 is a very real deficiency with very real health consequences. The body relies on B12 for tens of thousands of daily functions. Vitamin B12 is critical to our livelihood.

Whether you have acne, SIBO, eczema, weight problems, depression, allergies, cancer, seasonal affective disorder, anxiety, ringing in the ears, thyroid problems, aches and pains, rheumatoid arthritis, memory issues, brain fog, or any other symptom or condition, the right kind of B12 is important. A high-quality B12 with methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin at the proper dose can get someone recovering and on a path of starting to heal.

Support for Fatigue, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Restless Legs, POTS, Parkinson’s, MS & Other Neurological Conditions
Vitamin B12 is a valuable supplement for someone suffering from any neurological symptom or condition. For one, B12  bolsters and protects the brain and central nervous system.

Secondly, this particular type of B12 contains electrolytes, which help counteract the storm happening in the brain when someone has a condition affecting the brain or is under stress. These electrolytes also help protect and restore brain tissue. Thirdly, the right B12 boosts you mentally and emotionally.

B12 can help with anxiety, bipolar, depression, ALS, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, panic attacks, migraines, restless legs syndrome, POTS, fatigue, tremors, and every other symptom or condition–even those that aren’t neurological.  It is immune strengthening and protects against viral damage.

When fighting a viral-caused symptom or condition, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, eczema, psoriasis, tinnitus, vertigo, thyroid problems, PCOS, Lyme disease, lupus, dry skin, brittle hair, prostate conditions, and many more, it is essential to use a B12 blend of both adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin. Including a methyl folate supplement along with this B12 blend is especially helpful.

Vitamin B12,  protects your entire body from neurotoxin damage from the many mutated strains of the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles and other harmful viruses. It also repairs and strengthens the areas of the nervous system and other parts of the body that have been damaged by viruses. This type of B12 also helps strengthen neurotransmitter chemicals in the brain so it can stay strong against the viruses that are behind so many neurological illnesses.

Your liver doesn’t have to do any work to convert B12 into a usable form when it’s in the adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin form. B12 helps keep a liver out of stagnation, strengthens hepatocytes and all other liver cells as well as liver lobules, and prevents the liver’s blood vessels from atrophying.

According to MM, the right B12 supplement is a better choice than B12 injections. Apparently these injections do not contain the right kind of B12 blend and have the potential to trigger an overreaction in a sensitive body. Plus, B12 has to be taken orally to be effective. When we take oral B12, it gets absorbed into the digestive system, where it’s “tagged” and made active and bioavailable, so that when it enters the bloodstream, it’s in a form that our nerves and organs accept.

The Vitamin B12 in the Vimergy range comes highly recommended and is the one I use everyday.  It can be purchased from an Australian supplier @ www.floweroflife.com.au

 

 

They are absorbable suture threads that have been placed in sterile needles and when released into the skin they lift the skin and stimulate collagen production.

PDO threads have been used successfully for more than 30 years, in many surgeries worldwide. This treatment is completely safe. It is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed and there are no reports of allergic reactions, sensitivities to the threads, or serious side effects or risks.

There are two types of threads, lifting threads for sagging skin to give a more immediate effect and smooth threads to stimulate the reproduction of collagen and bring new blood flow to an area.  It mechanically results in instant skin lifting, skin tightening and neovascularisation to renew your skin at the cellular level.  All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin.

The Hyaluronic acid in the PDO thread lift treatments is also an important requirement for a more youthful and slightly plumper face, thereby offering results similar to that of a facelift without the need for invasive surgery.

Recovery after a PDO thread lift is minimal. Most patients are able to return to work and most normal activity 1 day after the procedure with only minor discomfort. It is common for patients to experience minor inflammation and bruising which typically resolves within 1 week.
