Menopause

Menopause

Are you a female having hot flashes? Mood swings? Night Sweats? Urine Problems? Insomnia? Vaginal Dryness? Decrease Sexual Desire? Stress? Tiredness? And Fatigue?

All these symptoms are because of a process that occurs overtime, and it is called PERIMENOPAUSE a transition period to MENOPAUSE, which is the absence of the menstrual period for 12 months.

It is a time in woman’s life, where her fertility function ceases.

It can start as early as 30 or as late 60 years old.

Usually it is related to other health problems like weight gain, osteoporosis, heart diseases and high blood pressure.

There is fluctuation during the perimenopause period in the female’s hormones in the body, like Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone which are responsible for most of the problems that women face during that transition.

Several remedies can be used, some are herbal, like red clover, dong quai or black cohosh.

Others like Bioidentical hormone therapy which are hormones derived from plants prepared individually for patients at Compounding Pharmacies.

Another remedy is to stay healthy using modified lifestyle which includes nutritious diet, physical activity and stress management skills.

Mostly combining multiple remedies are much better for optimum health and alleviation of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.

Is what you are eating making you sick?

Learn more about food intolerance:
Food can be medicine or can be a toxin to the body.

A very high percentage of people suffer from food intolerance (non allergic food hypersensitivity) which can produce multiple symptoms like fluid retention, weight gain,acne and other skin problems, headaches, anxiety, bloating and more.

The continuous consumption of certain foods to which you have intolerance to, weakens your resistance to many common illnesses and conditions.  A weak defence enables illnesses to develop and take hold of your body.

If you have food intolerance you may be able to eat small amounts of the offending foods without trouble.

Once a threshold is reached by the body to digest the offending food the body starts reacting and triggering some diseases to form like autoimmune thyroiditis, autoimmune joint diseases and there might be a relationship between food intolerance and dementia like Alzheimer’s disease.

Causes of food intolerance may include:
•stress or psychological factors
•food additives like sulfites used to preserve dried food and nitrites used in meat preservation
•Food poisoning caused by parasites, toxins and bacteria
•Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic condition that can cause cramping, constipation and
diarrhoea.
•Celiac disease is a digestive condition triggered by eating gluten a protein found in wheat and other grains.

If you have a reaction after eating a particular food there is a specific test that can identify the different foods that your body is unable to digest and process properly.
Once you identify those foods, you will have to stop eating them for a certain period of time, which after that, your body will forget how to react to them and you will be able in some circumstances to eat those foods again and no longer have a reaction.

The Salusmed Concept: Customised Testing from Switzerland

1. Individual Need of Micronutrients 

We take in micronutrients through our food. Different lifestyles and habits lead to different demand of those micronutrients. Everybody shows different under and over coverage of single vitamins, trace elements and minerals.

salusmed-konzept-wordart

2. Analysis of Blood Indicators 

With our laboratory technology and the help of blood analysis and other samples, we are able to generate a profile of the required micro nutrients for each individual person. Our biochemists comment on specific conspicuous values, and propose an individual scheme for the supplementation with up to 66 micronutrients.

3. Personalized mixture of micronutrients

Ordinary micronutrient supplements are standard products. That is why they partly supplement nutrients where there is enough of it in our body. On the other hand, individual deficiencies are not covered fully, or not at all. Salusmed mixtures are adjusted individually, so for every person is it unique. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

 

Hair Loss Solution in Dubai

Chlorinated water in Dubai has a severe effect on your scalp and can cause hair loss.

It is an often heard rumor that the water streaming from the taps in the UAE is the cause of hair loss and an end number of solutions are available to avoid losing some more.

A shower head eliminates a certain percentage (depending on the design) of chloride, kills harmful bacteria and ionizes the water.

Women who have used the shower filter are positive about the results. “I suffered badly from hair loss due to the harsh water in Dubai and after I started using this hair filter it made my skin  better as well as I stopped losing hair. It catches a lot of the sand, chlorine, and harsh impurities that are in the water here in Dubai,” tells one of the women on ExpatWoman.

BENEFITS OF SHOWER FILTER ON  YOUR SKIN AND HAIR 

  • Softer, Shinier and more manageable hair
  • Prevents color fade out
  • Relief from dry skin and itchy/flaky scalp
  • Great for those with Chlorine sensitivity
  • Relief from asthma attacks
  • Removes 90% of Chlorine
  • Improves texture of skin

Vivandi Dechlorinating Shower filter is a non-cartridge shower filter that removes toxic chlorine from your shower with the best in style and technology. The result is better skin conditions, more manageable hair and reduction of itches and rashes. It is the most environmentally correct filter because it uses less plastic and lasts longer.  

Vivandi Shower Filters have been specifically designed based on the chlorine contents of the Middle East’s major cities’ drinking water. The filters also work wonderfully with any type of hand-held showers.

Thyroid Testing by Sofie Skogen

Thyroid Testing in Dubai

Homepathy in Dubai
Sofie Skogen, Homeopathic Physician, Dubai

Dear reader,

Do you or any of you or your family friends (including children) suffer from:

  • tiredness
  • being sensitive to cold
  • weight gain
  • constipation
  • depression
  • slow movements and thoughts
  • muscle aches and weakness
  • muscle cramps
  • dry and scaly skin
  • brittle hair and nails
  • loss of libido
  • pain,numbness, and tingling sensation in the hand and fingers
  • irregular periods or heavy periods

Elderly people with an underactive thyroid may develop memory problems and depression. Children may experience slower growth and development. Teenagers may start puberty earlier than normal.

Later symptoms of an underachieve thyroid may include:

  • a low pitched and hoarse voice
  • puffy face
  • thinning eyebrows
  • a slow heart rate
  • hearing loss
  • anaemia

And if you have any of these symptoms:

  • palpitations
  • insomnia
  • shakiness
  • increased sweating
  • brittle nails
  • loss of appetite

Your thyroid might be overactive. Sometimes one has both.

These are all symptoms of thyroid problems, they might easily be misdiagnosed and confused with other conditions as the symptom picture can be very similar.

Thyroid related illnesses is the “new” epidemic we are facing. The incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing more rapidly than that of any other cancer in the United States.

A normal blood test is not a good measurement for the functioning of the thyroid and core hormones. It has an accuracy of only about 18 % according to new research.

The good news is that there are other ways to check the thyroid and the core hormone functions, and it’s a non-invasive method, based on using the reflexes.  The test can easily be performed on children down to the age of 7.

Thyroid Function Testing in Dubai: Thyroflex is a non invasive thyroid test which measures your brachioradialis reflexometry (BR reflex) and resting metabolic rate, providing results in 5 minutes. The Thyroflex test identifies if your thyroid function is under or overactive, or within optimal range.If you are already taking thyroid medication the thyroflex helps to ensure you are on the appropriate thyroid hormone replacement dosage with 98.5% accuracy

http://www.thyroflex.com/drphil.html

What role does the thyroid have in the body? 

The thyroid plays a key role in your body. Thyroid hormones regulate just about every cell in the body, including those in the central nervous system, heart, liver, kidneys, skin, bone and muscles. Among its most important functions is the control of the rate of metabolism, this will greatly effect your weight.

Currently, the medical community orders millions of dollars worth of thyroid tests every year, unfortunately these tests can be inaccurate and as a result people with sub clinical hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) remain untreated or under treated.

Current thyroid tests used:

Thyroid blood testing: Blood testing of the thyroid hormones shows how much hormone we have, not whether they are working. You may have good levels of thyroid hormones but they may not be working well.

Body basal temperature: Requires taking your temperature first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. Temperature must be taken at the same time everyday to provide accurate results. The results can be ambiguous.

Thyroflex Test: the thyroflex Test is 98.5% accurate in diagnosing any thyroid problems and is FDA certified.

Dr. Daryl Turner – Thryoflex and Thyrodine at Hall Center

Dr.  Brownstein and iodine/iodide deficiency

I use the Thyroflex also in order to ensure that my patients gets diagnosed and treated as early and correctly as possible before more serious issues develops.

If they already have more serious diagnosis I can more easily follow it up ensure appropriate homeopathic and holistic treatment is applied to each individual case.

In addition to the testing :

Proper diets will be evaluated and adviced, the thyroid and the core hormones will be treated all with natural supplements for bodily support and I will assess and make sure that the ONE correct homeopathic remedy at the time is prescribed correctly.

The result?  you will feel the positive changes and improvement almost instantly, your symptoms will disappear and you will heal on all levels of being.

Be well.

Cholestrol Testing

You are very much familiar with the word cholesterol as you are often advised to limit the cholesterol intake as it can affect your heart.

So what exactly is cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat ­like substance found in all cells of the body. Our body needs certain amounts of cholesterol to make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help in digesting the food we eat. Our body naturally makes the cholesterol it needs. However, this substance is even found in some food products we eat like our cooking oil.

When the amount of cholesterol rises or goes down in our body beyond the recommended level, we get subjected to certain health conditions.

A low amount of cholesterol affects the production of certain hormones, which in turn makes you prone to diseases caused in the absence of those hormones.

Similarly, a rise in cholesterol, which generally shows no symptoms, directly affects your heart resulting in a heart attack.

This is why it’s important that you have a balanced level of cholesterol and the only way to measure the cholesterol amount is?Cholesterol Testing.

At Aesthetics International, our team, led by Dr. Hoda Makkawi, makes use of the latest techniques for cholesterol testing and even assists you with planning effective programs to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.

Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Your body’s hormones play a very crucial role in regulating your physical and mental health. Any imbalance in these hormones can subject you to conditions ranging from minor to severe.

In our thirties, hormone levels fluctuate on a yearly basis. When hormonal levels are not optimal, our bodies struggle to fight diseases and tackling hormonal imbalances can be difficult.

The immune system then weakens, paving the way for age related diseases and in turn, accelerating the aging process.

Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) injections assist in age management and help deal with this problem, ensuring you maintain a healthy mind and body. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results.
