Skin – Body – Health – Hair Renewal

SKIN BODY HEALTH RENEWALBy now, I am sure you have come across the growing chain of Skin Renewal clinics, which have further branched into Body Renewal, Health Renewal and Hair Renewal. A complete medical with a touch of aesthetician approach to being the best possible you that you can. After attending the launch of the new IV infusions administered by a registered nurse on offer from Health Renewal, Victor explained how the expansion from Skin Renewal to incorporate Body, Health and Hair solutions came about. He explained it simply with a metaphor saying that our skin is like a dashboard of the car and when the lights come up on the dashboard, it doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with the light that is now shining, rather that there is something wrong with the car. Skin Renewal realised there is a gap in the market for available solutions to underlying conditions which reflect on the surface of the skin, which can only be zapped by a laser so many times which makes them disappear before they come back due the underlying cause of the problem being left untreated.

Instead of being treating for multiple conditions with different specialists the medical assistance offered from the Health Renewal clinics ensures that there will be constant communications from doctors to doctors and nurses to nurses which will be much like the communication within a hospital environment but these doctors work hand in hand together and understand each other. The purpose of Health Renewal and all of their offerings is simple, to treat causes – not symptoms. Health Renewal is not to make sick people better but rather to make you as well as you can be.

IVAbout IV Infusions on Offer at Health Renewal

Intravenous therapy, otherwise known as IV therapy is the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. Intravenous means “within vein”. This sounds a lot scarier than it really is simply because it involves needles and when I first read about it I thought I’d spent enough time in a hospitals with drips in my arm to even consider having my own IV infusions.  The liquid substances being directly infused into your blood system are vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants in order to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies and help various health concerns. It is a more effective why than popping a vitamin because oral consumption of vitamins and minerals is affected and limited by factors which include the condition of the gut as well as stress and anxiety levels. After watching Victor be the test dummy and demonstrate while having the nurse how simple and easy this procedure was, I felt a lot more at ease and thought to myself, well I could do that, if it would make me feel better. Truth is, at Health Renewal, an IV Infusion is almost guaranteed to do so. Health Renewal customise the infusions to a personal note in order to combine the correct cocktail of ingredients just for you. There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to IV infusions.

There are various cocktails of infusions available at Health Renewal including but not limited to:

  • Skin Brightening Infusion Cocktail
  • Health/Hair/Skin/ Nails Infusion Cocktail
  • Chronic Stress Infusion Cocktail
  • Detoxification/ Anti Oxidation/ Organ Cleansing Infusion Cocktail
  • Hangover Recovery Infusion cocktail
  • Anti Viral Infusion Cocktail
  • Super Immune Infusion Cocktail
  • Athletes Performance/ Vitality Cocktail
  • Healthy Heart Cocktail Infusion

Dr. Fred at the event explained that you are what you eat but you are also what you digest and absorb. If the digestive system is absorbing impurities eventually your system will hold onto things ad eventually it clogs up your system. Your stomach and gut are critical as they are linked to every part of your body. Probiotics are essential for everyone but the capsules are not 100% successful. A probiotic is a complex science and they can get destroyed so easily. This is why IV infusions internationally have had such acclaim in terms of wellness benefits and the trends are gradually increasing on our shores because we cannot rely so heavily on our guts when there are other crucial influencing factors in ensuring we are receiving the correct nutrients 100% of the time.

Health Renewal boasts that the average age of their customers has shifted from over 40 years old to early 30’s…. This means that the consumer need for medical guidance for everything relating to general well being has shifted to be prioritised a younger age, which is the poster child for prevention being better than a cure.

If you’re intrigued, I dare you to find out more and visit a Health Renewal near you for you to start on your investment to prolonged wellness.

Don’t Forget to… Sleep! (1)

Good day Poutlings, I trust you are all having relaxing weekends.

This is the first post of a few to highlight the importance of getting enough beauty sleep for your general well being. Everyone knows that sleep is one of my favourite things to do!

When you’re trying to meet the demands of life, cutting back on sleep can seem like the only answer. How else do you expect to get through your never ending to-do list, or make time to just let your hair down and have a little bit of fun? Sure, a solid eight hours of sleep is great but who can afford to spend all that time… sleeping? Truth is, you cannot afford not to.

The importance of sleep is immense, although it seems to have been largely forgotten by our hectic every day lifestyles.

Sleep consists of a number of cycles and stages to restore and refresh your body and mind. Even minimal sleep takes a toll on your mood, energy and efficency and ability to handle stress. If you want to feel your best, stay healthy and perform up to your potential, sleep is a necessity not a luxury. Learn what happens when you’re sleeping, how to determine your nightly sleep needs and what you can do to bounce back from chronic sleep loss and how to get on a healthy sleep cycle.

The Power of Sleep

Many of us want to sleep as little as possible – or feel like we have to. There are so many things that feel more important or interesting than getting a few more hours of sleep. But just as exercise and nutrition are essential for optimal health and happiness, so is sleep. The quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of waking life, including your mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with such little effort.

Understanding Sleep

Sleep isn’t merely a time when your body and brain shut off. While you rest, your brain stays busy, overseeing a wide variety of biological maintenance tasks that keep you running in top condition for the day ahead. Without enough hours of restorative sleep, you’re like a car in a need of an oil change. You won’t be able to work, create, learn or communicate at a level even close to your true potential. Regulary “missing your service” and you’re headed down a path of physical and emotional breakdowns.

It’s not just the number of hours in your bed that is important. It’s the quality of these hours of sleep – even if you are giving yourself plenty of hours of a sleep each day but still have problems waking up in the morning or staying alert all day, you may be having some problems with the different stages of your sleeping cycle – especially deep sleep or REM sleep. By understanding how the sleep cycle works and the factors that lead to those cycles being disrupted, you’ll be able to get the quality and quantity of sleep needed.

The Sleep-Wake Cycle

Your internal 24 hour sleep-wake cycle otherwise known as body clock is regulated by processes in the brain that respond to how long you’ve been awake and the changes between light and dark. At night, your body responds to the loss of daylight by producing melatonin, a hormone that makes you sleepy. During the day the sunlight triggers the brain to inhibit the production of melatonin to keep you alert and awake.

The sleep-wake cycle can be triggered by numerous factors including, irregular sleeping patterns, working night shifts or travelling across different time zones. The disruption can cause you to feel groggy, disorientated and sleepy at inconvenient times. The production of melatonin can also be disturbed by being deprived of sunlight during the day and being exposed to too much artifical light of a night time.

How Many Hours of Sleep do I Need?

Worldwide, the average adult sleeps less than seven hours per night. In today’s society six to seven hours of sleep per night sounds fairly good, however its just a reciepe for chronic sleep deprivation.

While sleep requirements will vary from person to person, on average a grown adult needs between seven and a half hours to nine hours of sleep each night. Children and teens need even more sleep and despite the notion that older people sleep less, they still need seven and a half to eight hours of sleep each day, and often they have trouble sleeping these hours can be subsituted with short naps throughout the day.


So, Poutlings, on that note – I think I need a nap. More info to follow soon.

How long do you sleep on a daily basis?
