The elements within are the ones required for skin health and general wellness. It is not enough to just take supplements and hope for the best. I never have been comfortable with a sweeping ‘one size fits all’ approach to skin treatments, supplements or skin products. My treatments are all about progressive skin health and energetic therapies but the ultimate results come from the dedication and investment from my clients with the tools and knowledge I present them with.
The fundamental points to consider are the factors that affect our ‘living matrix’ – the network that impacts our posture, gut, lungs, fascia and the superficial skin. Where ever you go for skin advise, a consultation is THE most important part, however the consultation should also include how you talk, breathe, sit, hold yourself among other aspects – this is what unravels clues to what really lies beneath making it easier to advise appropriately and treat appropriately.
Some of my clients before and afters are pretty drastic and I have comments ‘what treatment is this?’ ‘how is this possible?’ – The simple answer is anything is possible if you believe and adapt to the Skins Pin Code!
General supplement tips for great skin health are:
To reduce skin sensitivity and excess stomach acid drink cooled boiled water with squeezed lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon of grated lemon rind (un-waxed) first thing on an empty stomach
Coll-Force is more than just collagen! It contains a tailored combination of marine collagen, as well as a clever vitamin, mineral, herbal and nutrient blend that is designed to work from within to help protect the body on a cellular level against ageing and oxidative stress. These synergistic ingredients also help to keep skin elastic, radiant and supple, and their actions are backed by science, with a number of EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) approved health claims.
Repair +, A pure amino acid powder, required by the body for a range of repair and maintenance functions, such as wound healing, muscle and bone growth, digestive health and gut wall integrity. It is also widely used by people with various forms of digestive and intestinal problems, an overtaxed or exhausted immune system, as well as by athletes following gruelling training routines – it breaks down uric acid from proteins.
Evolve -This amazing organic food supplement offers a unique blend of iodine-rich, food-approved seaweeds. Iodine contributes to: normal cognitive function, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, the maintenance of normal skin, the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function. The iodine also has the added benefit of being sourced from seaweed that naturally contains all the other minerals and micronutrients needed for its proper transport and metabolism (including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C). As most iodine is from dairy and meat, this is ideal in vegan, vegetarian, allergy and intolerance diets.
Hydration Duo – A fabulous duo that aids to viscerally hydrate enabling better absorption of nutrients. ReHydration is a homeopathic combination formula for dehydration and the symptoms associated with fluid imbalances.For symptoms of excessive thirst, lack of thirst, dry skin, bloating, headaches, stiffness in muscles and joints, mental sluggishness and dry mucous membranes SpectraMin, an ionic trace mineral complex, helps maintain the body’s mineral and electrolyte balance. Naturally sourced from the Great Salt Lake, the seventy-two minerals in this formula are in their ionic form to expedite the absorption process.
The Gut is a major factor for me when dealing with the skin so the majority of clients go on a program of replacing weakened gut flora with healthy gut flora.
Flora 12+ A synergistic probiotic blend that helps support normal digestion, a healthy intestinal barrier, and normal immune response through the repopulation of the GI tract with helpful bacterial strains. Take this for up to 3 months then support with Flora Synergy, a bacteria that remain in spore form until they reach the small intestine and aid in maintaining intestinal microflora balance.
