Avocado-lime-green-tea-smoothie

This is a refreshing and creamy twist on the green tea smoothie, which is often prepared with fruit. Lime juice and freshly squeezed lemon add tangy pizzaz to this beautiful and nutrient-rich smoothie. Green tea and kale provide antioxidants, while avocado contributes healthy fats, making this a satisfying afternoon treat or an excellent complement to breakfast. It’s also an ideal addition to a healthy detox routine.  

Ingredients

Flesh from 1 avocado

2 sweet apples, cored and roughly chopped

1/2 small zucchini, roughly chopped

1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets

1 small knob peeled ginger

Roughly 1/4 cup loosely packed parsley

1/2 juiced lime

2 leaves kale

1 cup brewed and cooled green tea

2/3 cup almond milk (or water)

2 tsp chia seeds (optional)

Preparation

*You might like to stop and taste after blending in the lime and lemon, to see if the flavor suits your taste.

Add all ingredients to a high-powered food processor and blend until smooth and combined.

Pour into two jars and stir a teaspoon of chia seeds through each. Allow to sit at least half an hour (though overnight is best) before consuming. This will allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid.

Acupuncture For Relaxation

Many would argue that there’s nothing worse than the inability to fall asleep. It can be incredibly frustrating and can wreak havoc on daily activities, even making people more prone to accidents.

Most of us have been there at one time or another- lying in bed staring at the ceiling, unable to slow down and it can usually be traced to stress and anxiety in our daily lives. At this junction we often turn to sleeping aids or narcotics to help us relax. But acupuncture is great at harmonizing imbalances, decreasing stress and promoting overall well-being. Many people notice an increase in restful sleep after just one treatment! If you are one of the many people who struggle with sleep issues and have tried other things with no success, perhaps acupuncture is the answer you have been looking for.

Treatment involves the use of points that are known to be helpful with sleep issues, as well as points to harmonize imbalances in the body. Also used by acupuncturists are auricular seeds which are put on specific ear points and continue to stimulate the body to heal imbalances for days after your treatment.

PRP Collagen Induction Facial

During a PRP facial, plasma-rich protein and platelets from your own blood are used as a serum combined with a microneedling treatment.  The result is a triggered production of collagen and elastin that smooths fine lines and wrinkles, restores volume and refines skin’s texture.  Results are visible immediately and skin continues to produce collagen and elastin up to 6 months after treatment with results improving over time.  

PRP therapy is a three-step process requiring 3 treatments spaced 4–6 weeks apart. Unlike laser treatments, you can repeat microneedling as often as you want without creating unwanted scar tissue. PRP can also soften and erase scars and stretch marks and the results generally are permanent.

To care for your skin after a PRP or microneedling treatment, use a very gentle cleanser and tepid water to cleanse the skin for 72 hours following treatment. Gently dry the treated area after rinsing and make sure your hands are as clean as possible throughout the day. It is recommended that you do not use powder makeup brushes for up to seven days after your treatment to prevent the spread of bacteria to freshly healing skin.  

PRP is a relatively painless treatment.  Client comfort is our primary concern.  You will receive the appropriate combination of numbing creams 20 minutes before your procedure to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.  Your skin may feel dry or tight for up to a week after treatment though most patients feel healed and refreshed within a few days.

The Cameron Wellness Center: An Alternative To Big-Pharma Solutions

Here in America, we have some of the best acute care in the world, but when it comes to chronic care, has the system let us down?

Anyone who has suffered chronic health problems understands the frustrations of the modern medical community, its processes, and its focus on treating symptoms rather than finding the Cause—it becomes a medication carousal run by Big Pharma that eventually begins spinning so fast, there’s no way in hell it would be safe to just jump off.

Don’t Let Stress Ruin Your Health

Stress in our everyday lives

We all encounter stress from time to time, but the trick is in how much you get hooked by it; don’t let stress ruin your health.
Whether you get cut off in traffic, have a disagreement with your partner, experience conflict at
work, or are dealing with a health issue, your response to these stressors makes all the
difference in your health.
Imagine that the cells in your body are like plants in a garden, where they need sufficient
nutrients, water, and air to survive. Now imagine that all of these elements of life are supplied
by a hose, but the hose is being kinked without you knowing. Overtime, the vitality of each
plant begins to diminish; not by a lack of trying, but simply because the underlying cause isn’t
being adequately addressed.


Stress and its Impact on Health
The kink in the hose represents the role stress has on the nervous system. Under stress, the
sympathetic nervous system responds by diverting blood flow away from non-essential organs
(like the gut) to systems that will help you “fight or flee.”
Not only does your heart rate and blood pressure increase, but many people also tend to hold
their breath and breathe using their chest (instead of the diaphragm), which further
exacerbates the stress response.
This can lead to or worsen a whole host of health issues, like anxiety, fatigue, high blood
pressure, hormonal imbalances, light-headedness, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches,
insomnia, musculoskeletal tension and pain, constipation, and much more.


So what do you do? Stress is inevitable, right?
Well it turns out that learning some specific breathing techniques and body awareness can help
to shift the nervous system into a “rest and digest” parasympathetic state. Getting into this
state is like unkinking the hose. Your body can finally relax and begin to function more optimally
again.
Unfortunately, it is not as simple as taking deep breaths, unlike popular belief. When
someone tells you to take a deep breath, it serves more as a reminder to breathe than it does
to actually shift your physiology into a parasympathetic response.
If you want to learn how to master your health and reaction to stress, biofeedback therapy is
showing some pretty promising results.

What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback uses your body’s physiology as feedback on the state of your nervous system,
measuring things like your heartrate, heartrate variability, and peripheral temperature. This
information is then used to direct appropriate therapy.
The ultimate goal is to help you to better recognize how your body responds to stress, what it
feels like to be in a relaxed state, and how to get in this state quicker. In other words, you learn
where the brakes are and how to use them more effectively.


How Many Sessions Does it Take?
While many people feel benefit from the first biofeedback session, Dr. Shawn Postma
recommends that his patients have at least 3 consecutive visits. This will help to build a
foundation for the work. If it is a good fit, then he suggests that people continue for
approximately 2 months, which is the length of time research has shown to help a new
behavior become automatic.


How Much Does it Costs?
Dr. Postma is offering a 20% discount for a package of three visits, at $280 ($70 Savings). The
first visit is 60 minutes, and the remaining 2 visits are 30 minutes.
