Health Tips from our RN

5 Health Tips from our RN Genevieve

  • Stop drinking ice water! It dampens your healthy digestive tract, instead drink room temperature water with lemon or lime. This aids in digestion and detoxification and also helps with collagen production. 

 

  • Stop using toxic sunscreens. The ingredients enter your bloodstream within 24 hours. Instead, try a plant or seed-based oils such as cold pressed raspberry oil and make sure you get enough antioxidants. 

 

  • Flossing every day is great but oil pulling with coconut MCT oil could be more beneficial than flossing. This is similar to putting mouth wash in your mouth except with coconut oil you want to rinse the oil in your mouth for about 5 minutes.

 

  • Instead of using dryer sheets that contain hazardous chemicals use white vinegar and castile soap to wash clothes. Add wool balls and a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil to the dryer for a great smell! 

 

  • Don’t rely on allergy pills that have been linked to dementia instead try using essential oils as natural remedies. Try using Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Jojaba, Lemon, Basil, and Tea Tree oils.

Clean Water For Your Showers

Who doesn’t love a nice warm shower? Some of us have our best thoughts in the shower. Others become full-on rockstars singing our favorite tunes. But… when it comes to showering are you protecting yourself?

This may sound like a silly thing to ask, protecting yourself in a shower. But let’s look into this a little further. The average shower is about 15min in length. Every 5 minutes of showering almost 20 gallons of water are used. That means during each shower about 60 gallons of water passes over our body. So still, what’s the problem?

Well just like my earlier post on our running water that we use for drinking this same water is used on our skin to bath. This water often contains pharmaceuticals, pesticides, heavy metals, and other toxins. So each day we are not only putting water on our body but also these toxic chemicals.

Our skin is highly absorbent. When this water comes into contact with our skin some of it is absorbed into our body. This may not seem like a lot. But day after day this adds up. On average a person showers almost 7 times per week. This means in their lifetime (an average 78.69 years in the United States) they would have showered 28,643 times. This also means 1,718,589.6 Gallons of water bathed their body. So yes, these small amounts daily add up over time.

So, what can you do? Have a filter that can be placed right into your shower system. This requires very little to install and will help filter these nasty chemicals out of your shower. Now you can enjoy your shower, TOXIN FREE!!

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a quick and effective treatment. It can be done in as quick as an hour with numbing. This fairly new treatment helps with improving conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles,  pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. It’s also been referred to as collagen induction therapy. 

 

Essentially we are using tiny needling to prick the dermis of the skin this process causes light wounds which produce collagen while they heal. This procedure can be done with PRP or platelet rich plasma, vitamin C or stem cells. The downtime associated with the treatment is minimal we recommend staying out of the sun for 48 hours. After about 2-3 days your skin should heal and have a nice glow. We recommend doing this treatment several times to ensure the best results typically 3-6.

Skin Care Treatments

Taking proper care of your skin requires a lot of time and effort. From proper dieting, hydration to avoiding certain products and environments. Sometimes all of these efforts and trails fall short and patients still are not satisfied with their skin. At MetroMD we provide the tools and resources to our patients enabling them to live a lifestyle that is correlated with overall health and a strong healthy appearance. 

However, in some cases, years of mistreatment of the skin can lead to scars and blemishes in the skin. For these cases, we recommend a variety of treatments depending on the individual. Today we will give you a breakdown of the various skin treatments offered here at MetroMD! 

 

The C02 Fractional Laser 

The C02 Fractional Laser has been a very popular and effective skin treatment laser treatment here at MetroMD. The laser begins by deeply penetrating and removing the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis. Targeting a specific damage area, the CO2 laser will rejuvenate the skin one layer at a time. The resurfacing technique creates a tightening effect through collagen stimulation. As the process continues, the damaged skin will show signs of improvement by greatly reducing the appearance of the acne scars, blemishes, and wrinkles.

The Carbon Peel

The carbon peel is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with minimal-to-zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.

A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.

Microneedling

Microneedling is an effective anti-aging treatment using tiny, short needles that puncture the skin superficially to rebuild collagen and elastin. The needles penetrate tiny holes into the skin to allow for ideal absorption of skincare or PRP (platelet rich plasma) and produce a tightening effect of the skin.

When an injury occurs on the skin, the body’s natural response is to produce a flood of collagen and elastin to go in and repair the damage. Using the handheld micro-needling device, your practitioner creates controlled micro injuries which leads to multiple cosmetic and skin health benefits.

HGH Therapy for Women

Human growth hormone (HGH) can be used to help women who struggle with low levels of hormones. As women age, and particularly during menopause, hormonal production tends to decrease, which can result in mood swings, elevated risk of disease, increased aging, and other complications. With the help of hormone therapy, women can combat many of the negative menopausal symptoms, and keep their bodies youthful and healthy. During menopause, many women are at risk of developing HGH deficiency, which can be easily remedied through the use of synthetic HGH supplementation. Some of the symptoms that HGH hormone therapy can mitigate include:

    • Excessive weight gain and weight retention  

 

    • Brittle hair and nails  

 

    • Mood swings and depression  

 

    • Insomnia  

 

    • Osteoporosis  

 

    • Muscle depletion  

 

    • Physical fatigue or lack of concentration  

  Menopause is a difficult time for women, as it comes with its share of physical and psychological challenges. Fortunately, by receiving regular HGH injections, women can help to offset the negative symptoms of menopause, enabling them to lead a healthier and longer life.
