SKIN WEEK SPECIAL:
Sweating is the body's built-in mechanism for keeping cool, but some experts believe that, because it opens up and unclogs the pores, perspiration is also a secret weapon for keeping our skin looking its best. However, i am asked alot about why does sweat sometimes seem to aggravate conditions like acne and eczema? When you work up a sweat, is that healthy glow really healthy? The answer to this question isn't a simple "yes" or "no,"and we'll take a closer look at why that's the case.
First, let's break down exactly what's in perspiration. Sweat consists primarily of water, as well as concentrations of sodium and chloride, and to a lesser extent, potassium. There are two types of glands involved in sweating: eccrine and apocrine. Eccrine glands trigger perspiration to keep our core temperature regulated, while apocrine glands release sweat as a response to nerves or stimulation, such as exercise. In addition to the aforemen...
You realise by now that our skin is the biggest organ of our body....
It is a reflection, a barometer of our inner and outer being in so many ways. The skins state can be attributed to other processes that are functioning in the body
Not many of us relate the outer glow of our complexion to our liver health. Over many years I have come to understand the tremendous importance of our liver function to our appearance.
Your liver is the metabolic factory of your body, producing energy to sustain the thousands of functions performed every minute by all of your body’s cells.
Your hair follicles need energy to grow strong shiny hair and your skin cells require energy to eliminate toxins and repair and regenerate themselves. Your heart requires energy to pump blood efficiently to your skin to maintain collagen production and oxygenate the cells to protect them from aging.
If your liver is not doing its job of breaking down toxins efficiently, they must be eliminated from your body by other means –...
FATIGUE: ADRENAL CONNECTION
No 2. STRESS, STRESS AND MORE STRESS....
These days. it seems like we are buzzing from one place to another, have multiple deadlines to meet, have multi tasked roles, have a plethora of people who depend on your services as a parent, sibling, lover, friend, boss, worker, etc have extended ourselves financially. Not forgetting for those times where you would normally have peace and quite, we now have Netflix, Stan, Foxtel, mutliple gadgets to fill in the time and continue our daily stimulation. Just maybe you find yourself checking your phone constantly instead of JUST BEING in the stillness. When there is no rest, no stillness, when you’re stressed to the max due to constant stimulation, your adrenal glands suffer the most.
If you’ve ever been suddenly frightened, you know what an adrenaline surge feels like. This is a natural defense mechanism controlled by the adrenal glands. Unfortunately, chronic stress and busyness can trigger an abnormal adrenal re...
Of course you're tired so you use it as a pick me up.
It’s no big secret to you that you probably consume too much caffeine. You drink the coffeee, the soft drinks, the tea, the chocolate bars- all stimulating caffeine driven products to get you through the day. This popular stimulant increases both physical and mental energy, but that boost often comes at a price that includes poor sleep and over-burdened adrenal glands. So if you have symptoms of adrenal fatigue e.g., tired for no reason, trouble waking up in the morning, cravings for salty and sweet foods—what should you do when it comes to caffeine?
Many health experts advise adrenal fatigue sufferers to cut caffeine completely from their diets, period, full stop. That, for some ends up being the best medicine. But others may need a more “middle-of-the-road” approach when it comes to caffeine. One thing to consider: people in other cultures have been safely enjoying traditional...
OH I AM SOOO TIRED AGAIN, AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.....
THE ADRENAL CONNECTION:
I've heard so much of this in clinic lately which really distresses the client that they cannot live their life optimally when feeling so fatigued. In fact I get quite concerned that the patient does not have the ability or energy to live the life they want. So I really want to talk about the causes of Adrenal Fatigue....
We are a society of sleepiness, running on fumes and caffeine, craving sugary foods, and suffering from debilitating exhaustion. Today, chronic fatigue affects more than over a million people iin Australia and chances are you are one of them. That’s not even counting all the mildly to moderately fatigued.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is multifaceted, but one common aspect of the condition is something called adrenal fatigue.
The adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys like little kidney baseball caps, release several important hormones, one of which is cortisol. You’ve probably heard about co...
