MRL SKIN AND SUPPLEMENT Q& A’s

You will notice with Marie Reynolds London line that there are not a selection of different cleansers, toners or moisturisers that are designed for specific skin types or skin conditions. This is because Marie belies that although we have external influences from our environment and topical products that influence our skin, fundamentally it is the internal influences that create imbalances shown on the surface of the skin. Marie says ‘ the skin is like a barometer showing clues of internal imbalances’ . She believes that the skin is ever changing and it is important to support the lipid barrier- this is a combination of oil and moisture that protects the skin from invading bacterias and moisture loss, and to feed the microbiome. The surface of the skin has its own living community of flora and fauna that is changing all the time and is so important for overall skin health.

The following routine it recommended for the use of the MRL Range, for further information on each product, simply click on the link and it will take you to the description.

Morning Routine:

  • Goji Mallow Cleanse with Mitt – Apply Goji Mallow Cleanse  to dry skin, and work well into the skin. Moisten hands and massage for a further 1-2 minutes.
  • Elixir – Apply 2-3 drops onto a cleansed skin and work into the neck
  • Hydr8 Misting Veil – Spritz over the skin and press in lightly. This can also be used throughout the day to hydrate, the perfect companion on flights to quench a parched skin.
  • Reson8 mixed with Skin Quencher – Reson8 can be used aloe, just 1-2 pumps to seal in the previous steps but for that added Quench of hydration mix with Skin Quencher – Use the Copper Wand to stimulate lymph and blood flow, rejuvenating and soothing the skin
  • Evy Technology SPF Face mousse

Evening Routine:

  • Goji Mallow Cleanse with Mitt – Apply Goji Mallow Cleanse  to dry skin, and work well into the skin, use the ring finger in circular movements over lashes and eyes to gently remove any eye make up. Moisten hands and massage for a further 1-2 minutes. Remove product with the MRL Cleansing Mitt  – for an added extra you can add a sprinkling of Repair+ into Goji Mallow and apply like a mask for 3-5 minutes before removing with mitt
  • Elixir – Apply 2-3 drops onto a cleansed skin and work into the neck
  • Hydr8 Misting Veil – Spritz over the skin and press in lightly. This can also be used throughout the day to hydrate, the perfect companion on flights to quench a parched skin.
  • Skin Quencher mixed with a drop of Anoint  You can also add a pinch of Repair + into this hydration for an added amino acid boost.
  • Use the Copper Wand to stimulate lymph and blood flow, rejuvenating and soothing the skin
  • Skin Quencher – apply a pinhead size of skin Quencher around eye area to hydrate

Optionals:

Twice weekly:

Restore mixed with Anoint (or on it’s own as a mask)

Repair+ mixed with Anoint used twice a week as a mask

You can certainly use the skincare, with restore it is always best to avoid while pregnant and breastfeeding as well as the supplements. Although I believe they will be perfectly safe to use there has not been any studies on pregnant or lactating women with any supplement use so I always err on the side of caution and wait until lactation (breastfeeding) is over and baby is fully weened off the breast.

Eczema is a symptom of underlying causes – I am not a doctor so any problems you may have you must always seek the advice of your GP, however looking at internal factors like diet, lifestyle, how you were born, emotional management are all things to take into consideration. The best thing is to book a consultation here and start the process. Topical products keep it very simple look at Restore and Anoint to begin with, supplements Ocean EFA and Repair+

Melasma and pigmentation are auto immune responses that need to be managed. Topically look at the order of process above but fundamentally it is looking at supporting the liver. You can add Liver Rescue into your regimen to help with this condition and of course book Information a consultation for further advice.

Eye creams and gels are a bit of a ‘smoke and mirrors’ dark circles are linked to w weak Kidney or Spleen energy – meaning the meridians get tired quickly when over strained. Late nights, spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol all contribute. Also gut stagnation so always look at your gut health!

There are four ‘go to’ supplements for supporting skin health

Coll- Force

Evolve

Repair+

Ocean EFA

Hair loss or shedding can be linked with many factors, usually the Adrenals need supporting here. Adaptogens are amazing to help hair shedding which are in 3-SET along with Coll-Force which has Biotin and Selenium all wonderful ingredients to encourage hair growth and hair integrity. There are other Homeopathic remedies and minerals that are also beneficial but would need a consultation.

  • Repair+ – can be mixed with Anoint to form an oily mixture for areas of inflammation. Mix a heaped teaspoon of Repair+ with 3 teaspoons of Anoint and apply to the area for 10 minutes. Remove with MRL Mitt or a warm flannel.
  • Super charging the Goji Mallow Cleanser is also a great way to do a flash mask: Cleanse the skin as normal with Goji Mallow , remove with MRL Mitt you can add either Calmeric – Tumeric is excellent for acne skins but also very calming and soothing – just a quarter capful in sprinkled in the hands with Goji Mallow and work into the skin. Remove with MRL Mitt. You can also use Evolve to boost the anti oxidants or to mop up impurities on the skin. Repair+ is another that can be added into Goji Mallow to reinforce hydration and repair.

  • Ocean EFA can be split open and added to Anoint for that extra boost of EFA, especially when using for scars or stretch marks

I personally do not believe in types or conditions as skin is ever changing. It is an organ of many functions and also very responsive to mental, emotional, dietary, genetic and environmental experiences. Hence why I only have one cleanser, one spritz etc. The skin is a barometer of what is going on internally, treat within and the skin reflects!

No fluids with meals, chew your food slowly and have small mouthfuls, eat as a clean diet lots of fruit and vegetables, drink plenty of water throughout the day. Support the liver with Liver Rescue and if you’re eating late implement Catalyst Enzymes.

 

You must always look at what you are eating. A healthy diet and lifestyle;e are key to good gut health. Make sure you are hydrating with at least 2 litres of water a day, adding the Hydration Duo is great. Also adding in Col-Motion take as directed. Inulin & Fos mixed with 1 teaspoon of Repair+ in the morning before breakfast is also a great addition.

Bloating can be caused by many factors and it is always important to go to your GP if you feel unwell or in pain. For general bloating this may be linked to intolerance, so eliminating foods like dairy and gluten may help. Look at how you are eating, if you are bolting food does – slow down and chew for longer. Eradic8 and Catalyst are great to aid bloating also Promax+.

There may be an overgrowth of bad bacteria, when supplements like Promax+ or Eradic8 are introduced the bad bacteria can protest so a few days of adjustment is needed, keep on with the program, or reduce dose for a few days then increase to directed dose.

Sometimes the skin can ‘purge’ this is a good sign, even though it may be uncomfortable for you, it will be for the short term. The skin is the largest organ of the body and one of the eliminating organs, when the liver is detoxinating it will throw out in the skin. Keep taking the supplements as directed for your health plan, drink plenty of water to flush the kidneys and help elimination.

Probiotic supplements are useful when the balance of good and bad bacteria in the bowel has been disrupted. Such an imbalance almost always occurs:

  • after use of antibiotics
  • following illness
  • during and after periods of heightened stressas
  • we get older (and our digestive enzymes decrease in number)
  • following travel to a foreign countryfor people who experience regular tummy upsets
  • for people who regularly have an urgent need to use the toilet
  • for people who have poor digestion.An imbalance of bowel flora can lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as a bloated stomach, abdominal pains, irregular bowel movements and a feeling of heaviness after eating. Probiotics are recommended for people who wish to ensure or maintain a favourable amount of the friendly bacteria in their digestive tract.

This is not necessary because the probiotic bacteria used in this product are specially coated during the manufacturing process to ensure that they remain stable at room temperature. This is important, because many probiotic products that are kept in the fridge are damaged by the continual opening and closing of the fridge door, which lets in moisture and damages the fragile bacteria.

A single species probiotic is simply unlikely to deliver as many benefits as a multi-strain probiotic, which colonises and acts upon multiple locations within the body. There are literally hundreds of different species of good bacteria in our digestive system, so a multi-strain formula will work in more areas and also provide better protection against a wider scope of harmful micro-organisms.

Yes. All of the bacterial strains in this product are micro-encapsulated, which means that they are protected and able to reach their target location in the body in a viable state.

Yes, if the food or drink in question is consumed within 12 hours, the probiotics’ effectiveness will not be affected.

ENERGY THERAPY Q & A’s

By restoring and harmonising the natural bioresonance frequencies, it allows the body to heal naturally without any adverse effects. It is a safe and non-invasive therapy which when combined with proper nutrition, lifestyle changes, and healthy lifestyle. It may also bring a pronounced and long lasting relief to patients suffering from long-term effects of stress. Read more here

Each organ, tissue and cell in our body has a distinct frequency created by the rotation of atoms in our cells. The Biofeedback Scan ‘listens in’ and picks up energetic information. It observes the characteristics of wavelengths and energetic changes in the tissues and cells of the body, and the information collected can be isolated and decoded by the Biofeedback, enabling information for appropriate energetic therapies.

Frequencies not only occur from the physiological matter of the human body but also external stressors that impact the cellular communication that may include toxins from pollution and electrosmog, chemicals ingested or absorbed from topical products, food, allergens, moulds, stress, bacterias and fungi.

Resonance is a natural phenomenon whereby all living organisms and their components emit measurable electromagnetic waves, the frequency of which is dependent on their physiological state. The body cells, organs, and tissues that are subject to changes from external energy sources, positive and negative can influence their energetic state, in the imbalanced state the resonance is lower than what it should be in the normal state. These changes are measured using highly calibrated devices and Biofeedback devices. The Biofeedback provides a digital scan of the energetic information and the energetic co-factors of cells, tissues and organs in an energetically healthy or imbalanced state.

There are a variety of options for Energy Therapy, either from the Scans and Metatherapy listed below or Distance Therapy. It is very difficult to process how distance therapy works if you are not physically in the clinic. Please read this blog post to give you an insight in how it is achieved.

COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY Q & A’s

Colon hydrotherapy involves gentle, continual bathing of the colon by infusing warm filtered water into the rectum, designed to help remove toxins and a build-up of stools from the colon and lower digestive tract. This process enables the water to cleanse the large intestine, resulting in a gentle release to remove waste, rehydrate the bowel and stimulate peristalsis – e.g the movement of stools through the lower bowel. During the treatment, purified and filtered, temperature-controlled water is fed into the colon at a controlled rate.

 

  • Severe Anemia
  • Aneurysm
  • Cancer of the Rectum or Colon
  • Cardiac Disease
  • Cirrhosis of the Liver
  • Heart Failure
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Acute Diverticulitis
  • Epilepsy
  • Fissures or Fistulas – if painful or bleeding
  • GI haemorrhage or perforation
  • Hernia
  • Haemorrhoids – when excessive bleeding is present
  • Kidney Dialysis
  • Pregnancy
  • Prostatitis
  • Renal failure
  • Recent abdominal surgery
  • Tumours of the rectum or colon
  • Sever active ulcerative colitis

Always refer to your Medical Practitioner of you are unsure if it is safe for you to proceed with a Colonic Hydrotherapy.

•  Hydrating the colon
•  Reducing the toxic overload
•  Increasing vitality and performance
•  Reducing sluggishness and bloating
•  Detoxification, achieving a clearer complexion
•  Kick starting a weight management programme
•  Allergies and intolerances
•  Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
•  Constipation and flatulence
•  Diarrhoea
•  Skin problems
•  Headaches

BEFORE THERAPY: On the day of your colonic, it is recommended you have light meals and do not eat any food for two hours beforehand. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and book the therapy on a day that you can relax afterwards and allow the body to cleanse and detox. We kindly request that your personal hygiene is at its optimum.

AFTER THERAPY: Abstain from alcohol, spicy and rich foods for at least 24 hrs after therapy. If you have had a longstanding condition of constipation or several health problems you may experience a headache or fatigue on the first couple of treatments. This may be due to the detoxinating process, if this happens then listen to your body, rest and hydrate with water. In some cases you may experience slight bloating for a few hours post treatment, as trapped makes its way out of the colon. It is recommended to take peppermint capsules or a peppermint tea.
Since the colon has been cleared of solid matter, it may take on average 3-4 days to fill up again and normal bowel movements are resumed. Some water is absorbed via the colon wall during the colonic so the need to urinate may increase a few hours after therapy. The beneficial effect of flushing the kidneys may also be enhanced by drinking water with a squeeze of lemon in the glass or by adding in the Hydration Duo.

You will be provided with a course of Probio+ that you will be requested to finish in the days after therapy to restore and replenish the good bacteria in the gut.

Although this process is sometimes uncomfortable, it’s not painful. The most important thing is to relax and communicate at all times with your therapist to ensure you have a comfortable session. Discomfort is of a short duration, usually when you feel the need to release and passes quickly.

The Colonic Hydrotherapy involves an insertion of the speculum into the rectum, so you must be aware that in order for this to happen and treatment to commence, access must be gained. Having said this you are not exposed, all throughout the therapy you will be covered apart from insertion, where you will be on your side with covering draped over you. Once insertion is in place then you are gently turned onto your back, being covered at all times. It is a very discrete process with the optimum efforts to maintain modesty throughout the therapy.

All speculums are sterile and disposed after each use. This prevents any cross contamination and adheres to hygiene regulations..

Sometimes, you may experience a queasy sensation or lightheadedness, this may be due to a drop in blood sugar levels. This may be due to not eating during the day, or from leaky gut which can cause the liver to have a short term overload while detoxinating. Or as the bowel detonates, blood supply increases giving a lightheaded feel.

This is all remedied with sucking or eating something sweet, which will be provided for you.

This is patient dependant – you can have two in the first week and one the following then regular Colonics every two months after that. However you may only need two a year.

A Colonic Hydrotherapy usually lasts for 45minutes but it is dependant on the individual. Some sessions last for 35 minutes (especially if you have sensitivity or need hydrating only). You should not have a colonic procedure longer than 60 minutes.

There are no hard and fast rules to know when the colonic hydrotherapy is finished, some people do not evacuate on the first couple of sessions, especially if there is a long history of constipation.

You will loose ‘wastes’  – some people loose more and some less. Some absorb water and do not release straight away, especially if the bowel is dehydrated. The only proven way to lose weight is to move your body and eat a good healthy balanced diet.
