Glossy Creams, Facelifts And Botox? Why Nature Is The Better Surgeon!
Thought that cosmetic surgery, botox and expensive creams were the only way? Think again. Vie Harmony's new holistic approach shows you the astounding success that their natural and unique concepts have - with less risk and for much less money.
In the eternal quest for health and youth, entire industries tirelessly emerge with ever new, more promising and radiantly glossy products and services. And the demand within a society which seems to equate success in life with outer appearance, as promulgated by the media, feeds a multi-million Dollar beauty industry that is far from running out of ideas on how to make another sale of yet another new product. But just how effective are these products and are they actually really new? And if beauty has anything to do with health, how could mostly chemical cosmetic products result in sustained, lasting beauty when they don’t contribute to making our lives more healthy?
We talked to Anne Bernard, a licensed acupuncturist and graduate from the renowned AIMC (Acupuncture and Integrative Medical College) in Berkeley, California and Naturopathic Doctor in Canada where she graduated from the EESNQ , Ecole d'Enseignement Superieur de Naturopathie du Quebec. For many years, she has been specializing in natural healing methods in conjunction with acupuncture and European techniques in her clinic located in Petaluma, just north of San Francisco. It is there where, over the years, her experience with over a thousand individual cases made the link between health and beauty obvious. “No single cream, no matter how stylish its packaging, will take off the years you lived just wrong” she says, explaining that accumulated stress, bad nutritional habits, exposure to certain environmental substances, materials and conditions, a sedentary lifestyle and other factors play a huge role not only in one’s health status but inevitably in one’s beauty. The skin is the body’s largest organ and constantly exposed to our environment. Give it an unhealthy lifestyle and it will show the signs of aging much earlier and much more pronounced, Anne Bernard explains.
Surgical facelift can actually accelerate aging!
According to Dr. Prager, member of the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors, a considerable number of facelift patients regret their decision to have anti-aging surgical procedures, and seek non-surgical solutions when lifted portions start sagging again. Why is this? When you cut through healthy tissue and blood vessels and detach dermis from muscles, less vascularized scar-tissue is created and the effective circulation reduced. The skin is no longer supplied with the blood and nutrients it needs, Anne Bernard explains.
So, is there a remedy to alleviate or even reverse these effects?
Absolutely, she says, and the solution does not always have to point towards plastic surgery, Botox and other highly invasive and risky measures. Instead, the body has an immense capacity of regenerating itself. The key element here is micro-circulation which activates all physiological processes on a cellular level, the basis for regeneration. Vie Harmony’s treatments support and help the body to remove the dead outer skin layers and to repair itself, thus regaining much of its natural beauty by stimulating and improving the micro-circulation and oxygenation in the tissues. The clinic offers a whole array of natural treatments and supplemental products such as:
- Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation
Also known as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is a non-surgical, painless method of reducing the signs of aging, revitalizing the whole body. It is based on the holistic principles of Oriental Medicine. But does it really work? Yes! The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that of 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90% saw visible results after even only one treatment. It is an excellent alternative to surgical face-lift as it is far less costly, safe, virtually painless and has no side-effects or risk of disfigurement. Facial Rejuvenation reduces the signs of aging while simultaneously revitalizing the whole body. Not only will you look younger, you will also feel reenergized.
- Bio-Peeling (unique in the US)
Bio-Peeling is a technological revolution in skin rejuvenation. It exfoliates and hydrates the keratinized skin layers with painless and safe micro-currents without the application of any harsh chemicals or abrasion, thus avoiding skin irritation and inflammation. It also increases collagen production and the oxygenation of the tissue. In the US, it is exclusively available at Vie Harmony (http://www.vieharmony.com).
- Microcurrent & Color Light Therapies
have been called “the most significant advance in the fields of acupuncture & holistic healing in modern times.” Developed according to the principles of Chinese medicine by Darren Starwynn, O.M.D., Energy Light Rejuvenation works in harmony with the natural energy systems of the body. Its exclusive combination of Microcurrent and Therapeutic Light re-educates facial muscles and addresses the underlying causes of visible aging.
In essence, beauty and health go hand in hand. Not always do solutions have to be in costly and risky surgery or fashionably high-priced, well marketed products. A healthy and affordable life-style is the basis for achieving beauty with the techniques of holistic medicine. Typical applications, but not all, are: Wrinkles and Sun Damage, Enlarged Pores, Brown or Age Spots, Freckles and Hyperpigmentation, sagging tendencies, Acne and Acne Scars, and the list is long.
So, what’s the catch? Any side-effects?
Yes. You not only look better, you also live and feel better.
