Want Healthier Circulation?–Give Endermologie a Try!

Want Healthier Circulation?–Give Endermologie a Try!

circulation of the bloodThose Groupon deals kept popping up on my screen so I went all out and decided to purchase a body treatment through the Groupon website several weeks ago. It was a trial treatment for Endermologie–boy oh boy…did I ever learn a lot!

Some of you might have heard about endermologie as a spa treatment for fat reduction–that’s how many spas choose to position and market this treatment. But truth be told, this non-invasive treatment is more about improving CIRCULATION than about losing fat. In fact, if you lose waistline or thigh inches post treatment, it has more to do with improved circulation due to less water retention.

Respect Your Injury and Get Healthier!

It happens to the best of us: professional athletes, marathoners, novice competitors, weekend warriors and even healthy people who incorporate exercise into their daily life: We Get Injured! …Or in some cases, our body slowly breaks down so that surgery to mend it is eventually required. In either case, it takes time to heal. I have experienced this very circumstance this past summer when I accidentally slipped and tore both my MCL and lateral meniscus (cartilage) of my right knee. Ouch!

Blue Zones: Why Lifestyle Matters to Your Health

A good friend said to me, “We all have a certain number of ticks/beats to our heart. A finite number.” Yes. Agreed. But what IS that number? At what age will your heart cease to beat? Only God/the Universe know those answers. So why do some people live to be 100+ and others pass much younger? Do we really have an effect on that finite number of our heartbeats? I believe that “magic” number is predetermined. HOWEVER, we have so much ability to live out those years in the best way possible. We have the power to determine if we will live those years in a healthy state or with chronic illness and disease. We have the power to choose HOW those years will be lived as long as we become accountable for our own health and wellness. We need to become more proactive versus reactive with regard to our own wellness.

Mind Talk: Positive Thoughts Keep You Healthy!

One of my favorite mantra’s is, “You believe what you tell yourself, so tell yourself something GOOD!”  We spend a great deal of time thinking thoughts. And while many of these thoughts encompass experiences of “the moment”, we often have reflective thoughts about ourselves. Thoughts such as, “I bombed that last sales call.” Or “I nailed that presentation this morning.” Or “I am tired, and feel fat.” Or, “I look really  sexy tonight!”

Divorce takes its toll on everyone: moms, dads and kids (especially). Emotions tend to fly high and kids, particularly, feel uncertainty and lack of control. Divorcing parents are caught in the bubble of emotions of hurt, anger, confusion, fear and sometimes despair.

The Spices of a Healthy Life!

Being raised in a Polish household, my mother made some fantastic food, but didn’t use too many spices in cooking, other than salt and pepper. Even the food in college was pretty bland. It wasn’t until I was in my late 20′s that I tried new foods with many different flavors and spices such as Thai, Mexican, Spanish, Indian and even Ethiopian dishes. And guess what I discovered?…VARIETY is the SPICE of LIFE!

Clean Your Colon and Get Healthier!

stomach ache
Awww….those dreaded butterflies in your stomach, sour stomach, stomach ache. OUCH! Sometimes that awful feeling doesn’t even require food…your stomach may just ache in anticipation of an upcoming event or a stressful situation you are experiencing. While many doctors will suggest taking an anti gas or calcium carbonate medication, oftentimes, that solution may resolve your immediate symptoms, but actually make matters worse in the long run. Even long term use of laxatives will eventually cause your body function improperly.
