Beautycounter Product Feature for July

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Beautycounter,

"With the extra outdoor time that summer brings, it is so important to give our faces a little extra protection in the way of moisture and sunscreen which is why I was excited to try Beautycounter's Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer  – which combines moisturizer, sunscreen, and tint all in one. 

I am happy to report that after a few weeks of use I am very happy with the product and am still reaching for the Dew Skin daily. 

Here is what I have found:

  •      - It doesn’t get oily throughout the day! The way it goes on is the way it stays.
  •      - It evens skin tone, but without looking like or feeling like you have makeup on.
  •      - It isn’t too matte or too shiny when on…just the right combination of healthy skin. 
  •      - It doesn’t feel like sunscreen on your face. We all know that you can feel the sunscreen on your skin, but Dew Skin makes you feel confident in  knowing you have some coverage and sun protection but with a bare skin feeling.
  •     - You can layer it on days you need a bit more makeup. I found even just adding powder on top of the dew skin was enough “foundation” for me. After finishing my eye makeup and a little blush I looked and felt ready to go. 
  •      - I can always find time for applying it since it is just one cream and I get sun protection, moisture, and a little coverage all in one."

Beautycounter Product Feature for May/June

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Beautycounter,

"The Protect Sunscreen Stick (for Face) is amazing for the whole family, especially kids! I consider it a must have since it is so easy, convenient, safe, and even fits in my smallest purse. 

I think everyone who has ever tried to put sunscreen on a child knows just how much kids hate standing still for sunscreen, especially when it goes on their faces.

This sunscreen face stick is so easy to apply, even the kids can help apply it! It takes seconds to apply straight from the applicator and it goes on smooth and clear. If you apply a thorough application, there isn’t even a need to rub it in. We have saved so much time, tears, and frustration using the Protect Face Stick.

Unlike many other lines I have tried, I don’t get clogged pores on my face from this one – a win-win for kids and adults!

With how great the face size sunscreen stick has been for us, I am excited to add the larger body-sized stick to my pool bag this summer and take the hassle out of sunscreen application!"  ~ Heather M.

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Events,

Join us at Healing Alternatives on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 6:30 pm for informative Q & A on the Bemer.

Our patients have usedthe BEMER for many reasons.  These include, but are not limited to, chronic illness, sleep, pain, and injuries. Michael McMillen and Dr. Kate MacIsaac will be here to educate us and answer any questions you may have. The BEMER was designed in Germany and used in doctor’s offices and hospitals. The mat is used for micro-circulation.  It helps open up the capillaries in our bodies and get the red blood cells flowing more freely.

The Harmonizer

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Energy Healing,

    

The Harmonizer is a wellness service available in our office.  Like the other ZYTO products we use here, The Harmonizer session begins with a scan. During the scan, magnetic and light frequencies needed to balance you are measured by the hand cradle and software application. The Harmonizing Process will create an electromagnetic field around the body. The pulsing light frequencies you show the most coherence for will be introduced into this field simultaneously for maximum benefit. There will options for homeopathy to support your experience after you leave the office. 

There are many studies from other countries around the world that indicate the healing power of magnets and light frequencies.  The magnets in The Harmonizer are infused with various beneficial minerals below and above the chair.  The process of harmonizing your body doesn’t begin or end with magnets. During the process, the Harmonizer also introduces pulsing light frequencies into the magnetic field created by the alternating polarities of the magnets. The light frequencies are based on the results of your ZYTO scan, making this a highly personalized process that’s based on your biological coherence.

Benefits may include:

  • More energy
  • A feeling of being "put back together"
  • Increased serenity, or mental calmness
  • A better mood
  • A balanced, grounded feeling

Physical “dis-ease” is energetic and emotional before it is physical.  Surely, the future of medicine is altering a person’s energetic body before diseases become ingrained in their physicality.  Our goal in offering this technology is to keep peoples energetic body’s balanced, therefore doing everything in our power to offer them a healthier future. 

Please give the office a call for scheduling.  Sessions are $25.00 each.   You do not have to be a current patient.

What are the most common problems reported by patients in mid-life? Lack of energy, weight gain, memory decline, mood swings, loss of libido, hot flashes, insomnia…..These are issues for both men and women. In spite of proper diet and exercise, there is no question that our bodies change as we age. One key factor in this metamorphosis is hormone decline.

Our hormones, such as thyroid hormone, insulin, cortisol, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and growth hormone act as messengers to our tissues, commanding them to perform their respective roles efficiently. As hormone levels decline, the integrity of the body also declines, and we witness some of the common degenerative disorders of aging.

One way to help combat this decline is to replace the missing hormones with specially compounded bio-identical hormones. These hormones are prepared by expert compounding pharmacists, using plant or natural sources, and are physiologically and biochemically identical to those once made by the body. Since the body recognizes these substances as “self,” they are metabolized and utilized naturally, unlike some synthetic pharmaceutical substances. Testing for hormone levels is done with serum or saliva, and the appropriate dosing is determined. The method of delivery varies from oral to inserted pellets to topical creams and/or injectables. The goal is to replace the hormones levels to more youthful physiologic ranges. The result is a perceived improved state of well-being, as well as stronger bones, brain, cardiovascular system and metabolism.

       

We Also Offer Hormone Pellets

Pellet implants are compounded bio-identical hormones that are surgically implanted into the patient for Hormone Replacement Therapy.  Pellets are tiny cylinders that are inserted into a numb area of subcutaneous fat, typically the hip or the abdomen, using a trocar.  This dosage form is one of the most physiologic dosage forms available and can last around 3-6 months, depending on the patient.

Pellets can be made using estradiol or testosterone.  Dosing is determined by Dr. Kathleen MacIsaac based on lab results and reported symptoms. 

Symptoms that Hormone Replacement Therapy may be right for you:

Menopause Symptoms

  • Hot flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Weight Gain
  • Headaches
  • Low Libido
  • Fatigue/Loss of Memory
  • Decreased Memory

Soul Retrieval

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Energy Healing,

This blog post is an excerpt of Soul Retrieval  by Sandra Ingerman -   

    Imagine yourself sitting in a circle with members of your community. You have gathered together to support one community member who is suffering from a traumatic experience. You know that if one person is suffering and is ill it effects the entire community. So you have come to help hold the space for healing to happen.
            It is dark and the stars are shining bright in the night sky. The air is still. Everyone feels held in the loving arms of the universe and there is no doubt that healing will happen for all gathered here.
            The shaman begins to drum and dance calling the power of the universe to her as she puts her egoic self aside and becomes an empty vessel that fills with the help of the spirits. 
            The client lies quietly in the center breathing deeply to be in a receptive state to receive back his lost soul; his lost vitality.
            The shaman sings her journey out loud as she tracks down where the soul has fled. And on finding it returns and blows it deeply into the heart of the client filling the entire body with the light of life. 
            There is a great joy for all as one heals all are healed. The community is now whole again and can be in peace and harmony.
            The work is done. 

   Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind. We know from the archaeological evidence that shamanism was practiced all over the world for at least 40,000 years. However many anthropologists believe that the practice dates back over 100,000 years.

   The word shaman comes from the Tungus tribe in Siberia and means “one who sees in the dark”. Shamanism has been practiced in parts of Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, Greenland, and Native North and South America.

10 Crazy Things Pesticides Are Doing to Your Body

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Organic Foods,

Agrochemicals, home bug sprays, and lawn treatments could be causing chronic illness in your family.

BY LEAH ZERBE & EMILY MAIN - http://www.rodalenews.com/agrochemicals 
agrochemicals-man-field

Pesticides aren't just on the food, the chemicals are inside food, too.

Pesticides are designed to kill, although the mode of action they use to put the stranglehold on pests varies. Whether it's nerve gas–like neurological disruption, the unbalancing of key hormones, or the stunting of a plant's ability to absorb life-sustaining trace minerals from the soil, none of the chemical interventions seems all that appetizing, especially considering that chemical residues routinely wind up on and even inside of the food we eat everyday. Pesticides are also blamed for diminishing mineral levels in foods.

Agrochemical supporters tend to fall back on a "the dose makes the poison" theory, assuming that small exposures aren't harmful. Increasingly, though, independent scientists are debunking that belief, even proving that incredibly tiny doses could set a person up for health problems later in life. Luckily, eating organic, less processed foods can cut back on your pesticide exposure.

Here are 9 health problems associated with pesticide-based agrochemicals.

A Letter Regarding Supplements from Xymogen's Founder and CEO

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Supplements,

Company News & Developments

View Email In Browser 

XYMOGEN

Dear Valued Customer,

I am writing you in response to the New York AG investigation of herbal supplements sold at retail outlets (GNC, Walgreens, Walmart, and Target).

While time will tell if the accusations against these companies are valid, I want to reassure you of the quality of XYMOGEN's Exclusive Professional Formulas. The facts are:

1. As required by FDA GMP's, each and every raw material received into our facility is tested for identity. Identity testing is simply confirming that the raw material is indeed what it says it is on the raw material's labeling. Most identity testing is conducted via Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometers (FTIR) or Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC).

2. All FTIR identity testing is performed in-house, at XYMOGEN's state-of-the-art analytical laboratory. All TLC identity testing is performed by two of XYMOGEN's qualified third-party laboratories, Alkemist Labs and Advanced Botanical Consulting & Testing. These two companies are arguably the most reputable labs in the industry for the identification of botanical ingredients.

3. In addition to finished product certificates of analyses (COAs), customers may also request COAs on raw material identity testing for any raw material in a given finished product lot.

4. In assuring the purity, strength, and composition of all XYMOGEN formulas, each finished product has the following performed prior to releasing for distribution:

  • Label Claim Verification - Each active ingredient is verified to be no less than 100% of the amount claimed on the label.
  • Microorganisms - Must meet United States Pharmacopeia (USP), American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), and/or National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) acceptance criteria for dietary supplements.
  • Heavy Metals - Most products are required to meet USP acceptance criteria for dietary supplements. Where feasible, others must meet California's Proposition 65 safe harbor levels.
  • Physical Characteristics - Capsule/tablet weight average and weight variation, disintegration, organoleptic testing, scoop testing, etc.
  • Reasonably Anticipated Contaminants - In certain finished products, XYMOGEN will test for contaminants that have a slight possibility of ending up in the product. For example, due to the processing of pea protein and our assurance that all of our functional foods are gluten free, we test each and every lot for gluten to confirm it meets the FDA's recently finalized definition for "gluten free."

This level of testing IS NOT THE NORM in the nutraceutical field. The testing goes BEYOND FDA REQUIREMENTS. As mentioned above, customers are free to request a COA for any lot of finished product at any time. In addition to this, and in conjunction with XYMOGEN's ePedigree Track & Trace Program, we will be looking into ways to make these COAs even more accessible. The opportunity to view the actual test results provides an unprecedented level of documented quality assurance direct to your patients.

Thank you as always for your continued support and friendship.

Sincerely,

Brian Blackburn
XYMOGEN Founder & CEO

The Role of Detoxification

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Detoxification,

The greatest health care challenge of the twenty-first century is keeping our bodies functioning in an environment that is becoming increasingly polluted. Detoxification and cleansing programs have been key components of supporting good health since the beginnings of natural health, even as far back as 420 BC with the teachings of Hippocrates. After all, gastrointestinal health is the cornerstone of optimal wellness. We must detoxify the body and its elimination systems often, allowing for the consistent drainage of toxins.

Our food supply has undergone tremendous changes since the Agricultural Revolution, especially in the last century. We are bombarded with processed “dead” foods, which do not include the nutrients that we need to thrive.   The shift has been rapid and our bodies, literally, have not had enough time to adapt to these radical changes. Returning to our original eating patterns on a regular basis allows our bodies the opportunity to cleanse and renew itself.

The goal of detoxification is to eliminate the foods in our diets to which we have become addicted, both physically and emotionally. As creatures of habit, we subconsciously choose from the same few food items for our meals. Part of this behavior may be attributed to the dominance of certain foods, advertising and the convenient nature of some of these foods. Periodically changing our eating habits gives our bodies a chance to rest from its normal digestive and detoxification functions, thereby giving it the opportunity to do some internal cleansing.

While regular detoxification is important as part of a general wellness program, your body may be giving you signals that it is time to detoxify. Some of these include:

=         allergies

=         arthritis

=         fibromyalgia 

=         headaches

=         fatigue

Traveling for the Holidays? Need a quick immune boost? We are offering an immune trifecta!

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Holiday,

     *Vitamin D3 50,000 IU injection

=          *Nutritional IV Therapy

            *Glutathione IV Therapy

This combination will give you the immune support needed to fight of colds and flu while traveling and keep your energy high through the holidays!

Vitamin D3 Injection

Vitamin D has a remarkable role to play in your health, influencing nearly 3,000 of your 25,000 genes, and playing a critical role in your immune response.

From a recent Oregon State University press release:

A new study has concluded that one key part of the immune system, the ability of vitamin D to regulate anti-bactericidal proteins, is so important that it has been conserved through almost 60 million years of evolution and is shared only by primates, including humans – but no other known animal species.

The fact that this vitamin-D mediated immune response has been retained through millions of years of evolutionary selection, and is still found in species ranging from squirrel monkeys to baboons and humans, suggests that it must be critical to their survival, researchers say.

Even though the "cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide" has several different biological activities in addition to killing pathogens, it's not clear which one, or combination of them, makes vitamin D so essential to its regulation.

The research also provides further evidence of the biological importance of adequate levels of vitamin D in humans and other primates, even as some studies and experts suggest that more than 50 percent of the children and adults in the U.S. are deficient in "the sunshine vitamin."

Week 4: Metabolic Rejuvenation, A 28-Day Program by Douglas Laboratories

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Detoxification,

So here I am at the end of week 4 and the end of the Metabolic Rejuvenation 28 Day Program!  I'm glad I did it but also glad it's over.  I can honestly say that this has been one of the easiest detoxes I've done.  I've done many that left me wondering what the heck happened and why do I feel so lousy and exhausted. With this one I've been able to work, exercise and generally do everything I normally do.  Yes, I've been tired but that's to be expected, my liver is detoxing after all! 

There have been some interesting benefits that I didn't think would happen.  Of course the first one is I could function on a daily bases.  Another is, I haven't eaten potato chips in over 3 weeks.  Not even one graving!  (If you remember back in week one I mentioned that potato chips were a problem for me, had to eat them, a lot.)  I have to confess, I went to the store yesterday with the intention of buying a bag.  I figured I might want some since I was wrapping up the detox.  Not smart I know but I also know myself.  So I thought!  I made two passes of the chip display and I couldn't even pick a bag up.  The desire wasn't there and the desire for sugar isn't with me either.  Awesome!  Oh yea, I also lost 2 lbs. and I wasn't even trying!  Probably the lack of potato chip calories!

I can't guarantee you will have the same results as me because everyone will have your own unique experience.  However, I would recommend asking the dedicated professionals at Healing Alternatives if this detox program is right for you.

Thank you for following me on this 28 day journey to better health!
