This is a safe, natural, and non-invasive procedure; unlike surgical cosmetic procedures. Mesotherapy is a process that delivers vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the skin; which nourishes, rejuvenates, and promotes production of collagen and elastin. It also has the benefit of stimulating the metabolism. Mesotherapy can be used to rejuvenate and tighten the skin over the abdomen, neck, thigh, love handles, arms, legs, and also improve the youthfulness of the face.
The effects of aging is reflected in the skin just like everywhere else in the body, depending on how well the individual lived and how much stress was generated by his or her lifestyle. Here at the center, we approach aging skin from the inside out. We use mindfulness exercises, nutrition, nutraceuticals, and topical agents to enhance the quality of the aging skin of our clients. In some instances, we use: Mesotherapy, Biopuncture, and other procedures; in order to re-capture youthfulness as much as possible, usually with good results.
Patients who have IgE allergic reaction to specific allergens or substances can be desensitized with very dilute concentration of the same substances. This therapy often takes some time and gradually leads to neutralization of the body’s reactions to the allergens or substances. In time, the patients would stop reacting to the substances permanently in about 86% of all cases.
Sublingual Immunotherapy consists of using extracts of substances with known allergenic activities (either by liquid drops or in tablet form). These extracts are taken sublingually (under the tongue) by patients who are allergic to these materials as it permits the patient to become non-reactive to the allergens. The allergens are absorbed through the oral mucosa and stomach linings.
Injectable Immunotherapy is a medical treatment of allergen reactive patients suffering from severe respiratory allergies that are not well controlled by symptomatic treatments; like anti-histamines, corticosteroids, etc.. The purpose of this therapy is to desensitize or re-educate the patient’s immune system. This is done by giving increasing doses of the substances the patient is reacting to, while using a well-defined protocol. This creates long-term tolerance to the allergens or substances that are being injected.
The human body accumulates toxins from many sources. These toxins cause dysfunction in the cells which ultimately lead to dis-ease and the demise of the person. We have come to learn that toxic overload creates inflammation. Inflammation underlies every degenerative processes and various diseases, eventually making the individual unwell and inducing premature aging. Detoxification is the process of efficiently removing accumulated toxins from different parts of the body. This is a natural process that the body performs. The liver and kidneys automatically detoxify and excrete many toxic materials including metabolic wastes, but this process can be slowed down as to not cause negative or uncomfortable detoxification symptoms. When toxins are released too rapidly and without being safely eliminated, such as metabolizing fat that stores these toxins; they can damage the body and cause malaise, headache, fatigue, body ache, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, skin breakouts, flu-like or cold-like symptoms, and bad breath. Our goal is to give the body the necessary tools to comfortably and safely accelerate the removal of deeply embedded toxins in the tissues of the body, including the brain. There is a general consensus that those who complete this program experience a certain sense of exhilaration that they savor and wish to maintain for a long period of time!
This is a low carbohydrate diet in 3 phases. Each phase consists of increasing percentages of complex carbohydrates at 14 days intervals. The diet is ketogenic in nature; which means that as it burns fat, the increased protein intake also protects the muscle. Weight loss is substantial and occurs quickly. It does not reflect the amount of food that is consumed by the participants. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body for energy. The average person loses about 8-10% body weight. Lean body mass is protected due to the consumption of protein. Ketones generated from the fat loss (ketosis) is a great source of energy for the brain. The mind becomes sharper and able to think more clearly. Besides these benefits, Ketones are also appetite suppressants. The Fat Melting Plan’s benefits include: weight loss, the lowering of cholesterol, sharper mental focus, increased energy, anti-candida (fungal yeast overgrowth), improved mood, and much more.
Doing the Fat Melting Program after the Detox program enhances the speed and the effect.
This program was derived from the original research studies done at the University of Córdoba in Spain. This is a ketogenic Mediterranean diet that permits the individual to have a glass of wine (or two) with meals. Women are allowed to have 4 to 6 ounces of wine a day. Whereas, men are allowed to have 6 to 14 ounces of red wine a day. The most critical part of the program is the ketogenic Mediterranean diet. According to the study, individuals who were part of the study lost an average of about 30.7 pounds in 12 weeks. It lowered their cholesterol, increased energy, improved sleep, and some participants were able to get off of insulin. Other participants were able to lower the amount of oral hypoglycemic medications they were taking, while some got off all medication! Is Diabetes Mellitus curable? Maybe!
