Breast Care following Augmentation

Massage as post surgery breast care

Misshaped breasts as silicon hardens. These implants need replaced.

Another of the risks involved in breast augmentation is the formation of a capsular contracture, a condition in which the internal scar tissue squeezes the implants and distorts the appearance of the breasts sometimes typical of smooth implants.

Fortunately, breast massage, which includes compression, squeezing, and displacement, can significantly reduce the risk of capsular contracture by making enough room for the implants to move naturally as well as keeping the silicone softer and more able to conform to the desired shape.

Massage can begin soon after surgery using high quality nutritive and edible oils to help heal the scar tissue and recover from

Diet & Lifestyle

Planning for a healthy future

We start our lives in ignorance, and lets face it, many parents are ignorant of what constitutes a good lifestyle, diet and nutrition. That means that as we grow up with a less than ideal diet and lifestyle, we are laying foundations for ill-health and a short life.

As we live our lives in ignorance, it takes some time before some sickness intrudes and reminds us of our mortality. Then we look for a fix, but by then most fixes are best temporary and the only way to make a change permanent is to wake up and make those essential diet and lifestyle changes.

While there are countless diet and weight loss programs,

Neglect may result in your skin looking like a reptiles

How to keep your good looks and prevent sagging, lines and wrinkles.

Our skin from birth is exposed to sun, dirt and grime, and then washed with various combinations of chemicals. It is also susceptible to the process of ageing and after many years can resemble that of a reptile. But there is hope for lovely soft, clear skin, but first lets think about the skin, it’s functions and requirements:

Your Skin is a barrier to keep your insides in, and to keep the outside world out.

The skin is extremely tough and yet sensitive and can heal itself after injury, like the

Keeping your gut happy

Cafe meal

We live in a very high-pressure world and we need to perform at our best in order to succeed. However this pressure means that we often take short-cuts without diet and lifestyle. In a perfect world, we could sit for an hour or more and enjoy a quality meal with friends and even a glass of wine.

However so many people live on fast food and if that’s you, then your digestive tract is under a lot of pressure. Fast food tends to be highly processed, full of unpleasant chemicals and because it is fast, we eat in a hurry and continue our activities before digestion has taken place.

A consequence of this

Facts about ageing

Youthfulness is to be enjoyed when we’re young

We all want to retain our youthful exuberance and appearance, yet we cannot completely put off the inevitable, that over time our bodies will eventually succumb to age.

We all age at a different rate, some reach their later years and still look as if they are half their age, while others look a lot older than their actual years. The cause is in genetics, diet and lifestyle..

Genetics plays a role in our general features and characteristics, but it has less of an effect than diet and lifestyle.

Those who have a lifestyle that does not support the body will age more rapidly. A good lifestyle here

Oh To Be Fat

A battle to conform or find health?

I’ve discussed a little about our bodies and ourselves, and our need to get over our hangups or learned value judgements primarily because such ideology is limiting and holds us back from success in all avenues of life.

Being too fat or obese is different from being nicely rounded or carrying a few extra pounds. In contrast with anorexia which deprives the body of functional energy, a few extra pounds as a sign of good health and even food security.

Carrying a few extra pounds is not going to stop anyone from doing all the things in life they enjoy, it’s only a few of these people who suffer a

An Adventure Going Braless

Bucking a social trend

I heard about the organisation ‘free the nipple‘ and thought little about it until I came home from work until one day then realised how relieved I was to take my bra off and made the connection. I stood topless looking at myself in the mirror, mostly at the strap line’s that had cut into my shoulders and went from under my boobs right around my back.

Those cut lines or indentations felt so uncomfortable I massaged as far around as I could reach which softened them a little then I continued massaging my

Causes of Hair Loss

Protecting our appearance

Anthropologists say we began to loose our body hair about two million years ago and this gave us a competitive advantage over other animals. But nature left our head hair as protection from the hot sun, basically so it wouldn’t fry our brains.

Today, a full head of hair is desirable, yet for many of us it begins to thin at a very young age and both men and women experience hair loss for similar reasons which are.

Disease or illness

Losing hair could be a sign of being unhealthy. Illnesses such as systemic lupus erythematosis and syphilis, or thyroid disorder show hair loss as a symptom. Chronic kidney dysfunction may also cause lots of hair to

DNA

DNA or Deoxyribonucleic acid

DNA symbol circa 5000 BC which became a medical symbol

DNA is often thought of as the blueprint of our body inherited from our parents and then passed in through our genes to our children. What is little known however is that there has been a knowledge of DNA for thousands of years across India and Persia, and this was used to prevent inbreeding within the population. This is known as ‘gotra‘ and families were able to trace their lineage back for many thousands of years.

The way it was practised could also be described as eugenics because it kept the population healthy. In another aspect, it is referred to as karma or memory.
