Skincare during Cancer Treatment

After successfully beating Lymphoma, a skincare and beauty professional decided to act and seek to find more ways to help people feel and look their best. That is when she founded Immunocolgie. Immunocologie is a holistic, clean skincare line with no toxic or artificial ingredients, phthalates, Inderal oils, fragrances, formaldehyde, or colors. This is a safe-to-use skincare line for all. The beauty expert explains that Chemo, while very important in battling cancer is directly filling your body with toxins and chemicals. This is the biggest reason for all the side effects. Most of the time the skin is compromised to various degrees of sensitivity. She also states that it is important to note that cancer is not a skin type, meaning no two cancer patients will...


Humanitarian involvment: highly therapeutic!

When we think of well-being, we think of the elevation of the spirit, relaxation, consciousness, and overall health, but do we forget the essentials? At the base of Maslow's pyramid are basic needs. That so many people on the planet barely fill! For Nutrition beyond borders, well-being rhymes with solidarity! Have you ever wondered why people from across the world tend to stick more together in times of crisis? Because it is in an emergency, when life or security is threatened, we appreciate so much what we risk losing. There is also the ripple effect, the desire to fit in. Do they give? I give! We long to be part of a movement, a trend, so we give for identity reasons. Others give out real social...


Nutrition and Immunity

It will be my pleasure to be bringing you a series of articles over the coming months on our 2nd Pillar of Wellness: Nutrition & Immunity. I should start by saying that there is no one diet, supplement, or exercise regime that would be the ultimate support for your immune system; that army of cells, tissues, and organs that band together to defend your body against anything with the power to make you sick. So, I invite you to take a different view– a holistic or, if you prefer, the term integrated one. After all, don't you feel you deserve a tailored approach, not a one-size-fits-all? So, let's kick off this series by looking at three key trending areas in wellness; functional Nutrition, immune health, and metabolic...


Watsu; la combinación de termas y bienestar

El watsu es una técnica de bienestar que fue creada por Harold Dull, siendo la versión acuática de la terapia japonesa denominada Shiatsu. Comenzó a desarrollarse finales del siglo pasado en California, precisamente en las termas de Harbin donde funciona un centro de retiros espirituales, el Harbin Hot Springs con orientación a las prácticas de la New Age (Nueva Era). Hoy esta actividad está presente en 90 países y más de 20.000 instructores según el registro de Terapia y Trabajo Corporal Acuático. Se trata de una hidroterapia de masaje y ejercicio que se combinan en el agua, ya sea dentro de una piscina u otro espacio acuático para “soltar” el cuerpo. Según Dull es “dejarse fluctuar en los brazos de alguien, que inmenso en el agua...


Pleasure, a wellness trend that should be on your radar in 2022

Due to the pandemic, people have been limited for the past two years in their contacts and moments of celebrations, thus deprived of airiness, so now they are looking for simple, pleasurable, and playful experiences that help them disconnect efficiently from a stressful environment and reconnect with happiness. People require a more and more holistic approach to their overall wellbeing, factoring in what makes them feel happy and balanced, rather than simply focusing on efficiency and strictly healthy solutions.   It's an attitude worth taking into the new year. Because really, everything in wellness boils down to what makes us feel good. In that context, fun activities are replacing strictly healthy ones. For example, resistance bands are out, and hula-hoops are in now! This TikTok-inspired trend is up due...


The Touch of Wisdom

What makes the world turns around is energy.   My grandfather was a Kung Fu master and a medicine man. He used to teach me acupuncture points before learning to speak and walk. Playing to manipulate energy with a Kung Fu master was a privilege, but he never wanted me to practice martial art. As a girl, I was to prepare myself to master the traditional Laotian dance taught by my grandmother. This graceful gesture with the touch of wisdom in an elegant orchestration was the turning point for me 50 years later. During the pandemic, I was working on sustainable care and massage techniques. The gift of light that I have received from my grandparents' teaching perfectly fitted the touch of wisdom. I call my work of art: «...


Sleep & restoration

Sleep is one of nature's greatest inventions and blessings of life. It is a periodic rest of the body which is absolutely essential for its efficient functioning. It has been called the "most cheering restorative of tired bodies."   Sleep is an indispensable condition for the recuperation of energy. It is a basic need in man's mental as well as physical life. It is imperative to creativity as it recuperates the brain cells. During sleep, most body functions are carried on at the lowest level possible in health. Heat production is from 10 to 15 percent below the basal level. The body temperature mechanism is less sensitive than in the waking state and is depressed by 0.5 to 1.0 degrees F. 10 to 30 beats per minute...


Brain health

Fit Tip # 115 Up the Ante   Did you know that our brains shrink over time? That explains it, some of you are thinking. The average 90-year-old has only half of the wiring they once had. The good news? Brains grow. Multi-sensory stimulation, novelty, enriched environments, and brainteasers promote neural plasticity by challenging the brain to work in new ways. But here's the kicker: Exercise seems to have the most significant impact on maintaining brain health. If Sudoku is the shovel, exercise is the bulldozer. The hippocampus, in particular - responsible for memory, grows most significantly from the challenge of exercise. So if you want to hang onto your marbles ...


Green Wellness & Hospitality

Every hotel in the world is on a quest to be more Wellness orientated, post-COVID has expedited wellness awareness. People now really understand that if they do not spend time on their Wellness, they will have to treat their illness. Hotels have been offering and developing Physical & Mental Wellness for quite some time now in the form of Spa treatments, fitness sessions, and personal training, group classes like aqua, Zumba, yoga, and Thai Chi are some of the more common. Not everybody is Matt Fraser, who needs to go a bit further than a simple workout in a hotel fitness center, although I must admit we have come a long way from a small fitness center /room tucked away in the basement. Looking at Wellness...


Serenity and Mindfulness

The Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) defines serenity as a serene quality. "It is the courage to remain calm in the midst of difficulty." If we relate serenity as a factor that positively impacts mental and emotional well-being, we could understand it as a peaceful and calm psychological state, which provides the ability to remain calm in stressful situations. Beyond the different studies and research related to the definition and the different techniques to achieve serenity (which certainly help us to understand this state more thoroughly), it is important to keep in mind that cultivating our serenity is essential for optimal health. It must be assumed as a state of personal growth that helps us achieve different degrees of protection and inner well-being, as well as allowing...
