Your Kidney’s And Acupuncture

Did you know…?

March is National Kidney Health Month!

The Kidney Foundation of Canada is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year and they are taking steps to empower individuals to actively engage in their kidney health care.

According to the Kidney Foundation of Canada:

  • 1 in 10 Canadians have kidney disease
  • 200, 000 Canadians are on dialysis
  • 2.2M Canadians are unaware they are suffering from kidney damage      because there are no symptoms until kidney disease is quite advanced.
  • Nearly 95% of those with chronic kidney disease have never been told by a health care professional that they have kidney disease or dysfunction (read more from CTV News HERE)

The Good News:

In many cases, kidney disease can be prevented or managed and kidney failure avoided. The Kidney Foundation of Canada has launched a free online tool to help promote awareness and encourage early detection and screening. People at risk of developing kidney disease should be evaluated regularly. These people include those with diabetes, high blood pressure or blood vessel diseases, and close relatives of people with hereditary kidney disease.Acupuncture therapy - alternative medicine

Also,
Acupuncture and TCM can benefit in prevention of the disease by optimizing the function of the kidneys and improve the quality of life for the individual. Here are a few articles that may be helpful:

The New Look Of Lips and Nails for Spring 2014

Orange Isn’t The New Black:  For Spring, it’s the New Lip.

 Red lips have been having a major beauty moment the past few seasons but this spring, there’s a new hue in town fighting for your attention. Orange lips, while somewhat unconventional, are easier to do and more flattering than you might think.  Orange is a powerful statement, and a very Happy color!  Not to mention, it’s beautiful on all skin tones, whether you are pale or dark or have yellower undertones.file_180077_3_orange-lipstick
Warm skin tones: If you have more yellow/golden tones to your skin, look for yellow based oranges.

file_180077_2_Orange-Lipstick-2 Cool skin tones: Does your skin have more of a pink or red tone to it? Lean towards red or coral based oranges for a more natural look.

.
How have nail shapes evolved?  If you have watched any of the award shows of late, you will have noticed that the manicure of the moment is sculpted, a little pointy, and….. not largeshort!  Everyone from Adele, Katy Perry and Nicole Richie were sporting long, pointy, almond shaped nails.  They say that the new shapes- pointed, oval or a combination do for fingers what four inch stilettos do for your legs.  They make them look longer and thinner!
What are your thoughts on the new lip and nail trends going into Spring 2014?

 

Holiday Styling 101….

We all want to look our best during the holidays, one of the few times a year we reunite with most of our family and friends. If you need a little beautifying boost, you’re in luck. Here are a few easy styling tricks that will amp up your party look in no time.

glitter1. Wear a simple, elegant updo, like a sleek, polished ponytail.  Keep frizz and flyaways under control with a lightweight shine serum. Our favorite? Morocanoil Frizz Free Shine Spray.

2. Luminous skin is your best accessory.  Sweep highlighting powder in soft pink along cheekbones to brighten your face.  Try Jane Iredale Cosmetics.

3. When in doubt, wear black.   It always looks chic.  Add a little sparkle and you are ready to go!

4. Say it with RedBe festive and paint your nails red.  Try OPI Gel Polish to get you through all those holiday parties. It won’t disappoint!

5. Flutter like a ButterflyApply false lashes or experience Misencil Lash Extensions.  They will instantly open your eyes and you will feel glamorous.

6. Wear a statement necklace or ring. Tis’ the season for jewel tones or silver and gold baubles.

7. Don’t be afraid to show some skin Apply a body oil or lotion with a bit of shimmer to décolletage, arms and legs for some exciting sparkle.  We love Farmhouse Fresh Agave Nectar or Morocanoil Shimmer Spray.

8. Keep brows well groomed—they’re the frame for your face. Have you tried a brow tint when having your brows shaped?  What a great way to define your eyes in just 15 minutes.

Fun and Festive Crops

Winter hair trends are all about rocking a great cut and color!  Thinking about cutting your long locks?  Do it!!  Beat any lingering winter blahs by trading them in for a fun and festive crop and you will soon feel oh so merry and bright.

jennCelebrities everywhere are trading in their long hair for a sexy feminine crop.  We’d become used to seeing the ever-gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence  rocking long brunette locks as The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, so our jaws dropped when she unveiled a choppy blonde pixie crop.  Despite our initial shock, we LOVE it!  Not long after, we saw Jennifer Aniston rock a lust-worthy choppy bob.  Will this be the new “Rachel” style?

We do love to see a drastic celebrity hair transformation!  What do you think of Jennifer Lawrence’s pixie and Jennifer Aniston’s bob?

Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box when it comes to a new style this season.  Dare to go short, add some layers, rock a fringe or try a gemstone inspired color.  Want to keep the length, ask your stylist what’s on trend for 2014.
