Did you know that the highest incidence of serious skin cancers is right here in Hawaii? However, by taking certain simple skin care and dietary precautions, the risk of these cancers can be avoided or drastically reduced.
First, let me explain why Hawaii has the highest risk for skin cancer. The U/V index- the measure of skin being exposed to the intensity of Ultra Violet rays- is the highest in the entire nation, both in winter and summer time. The mountains, sea and sand reflect more U/V rays than any other geographical location. This predisposes the population to skin cancer and eye cataracts. In fact, the serious degenerative eye disease Polypoid Macular Degeneration is found only in the Hawaiian Islands.
I have therefore started an advanced and effective preventative skin care and nutritional program in my office.
Please mention this program during your next visit or make an appointment to get more details.
An interesting experiment indeed! As we age, our bodies change and I could definitely see it in mine. I have always been althetic and toned and although I eat healthy and work out, I just could not get rid of belly fat and slim down; yes I will admit I suffered from the dreaded muffin top. I was very frustrated and being menopausal, my body seem resistant to all efforts to loose weight and inches. I am a regular patient of Dr. Ostroff and she had been encouraging me to try Zerona over the last year. I was finally ready to try it this past Dec.
Surprisingly after my first session I saw results. That night, my stomach area seemed improved and I was ecstatic! After 12 sessions (I took a week break for Christmas between two blocks of six sessions), I have lost a total of six pounds - a lot considering I'm 5'5" and my starting weight was 137. I'm currently traveling so do not have my latest measurements, however, I can see a difference and my clothes now fit like they should - muffin top is gone!
Most importantly, think of this like the 60K mile maintenance that you have done on your vehicle. Dr. Ostroff prescribed a holistic program in conjunction with the Zerona treatments including diet/nutrition, exercise, supplements and alkali water. That is key! All of these work together for optimal results. I am very happy with my results and am considering another series of six to complete the process. Zerona has rolled the clock back 10 years for me and I love having my real body back!
It is true that although with Obama Care in place, many more individuals in our country will have health insurance; but think about this for a moment. How safe do you really feel, knowing that you or someone you love's hospital bills, maybe even their drug prescriptions will be paid for, no matter what? Are you assured that they will return home with abundant health, happiness and joy? Is the affordable care act going to give you the assurance that you will be healthy?
In reality, now and as it has always been, "YOUR HEALTH IS IN YOUR HANDS". Ultimately you will need to take preventive measures if you wish to stay healthy. Once you become part of the system of taking pharmaceutical medication, you have lost control of your freedom, and are now under the control of someone else. Of course your doctor will do his or her best to ensure that your drugs do not cause too many uncomfortable side effects, however, there are no guarantees. Many times, one medicine will lead to another, and another, and another. Is this health? Is this health insurance? Let's face it, even the supplements you purchase over the counter, on line, and even at the health food store, are full of fillers containing more toxic agents than your precious body knows what to do with.
The only true health insurance, is the assurance that you are HEALTHY, living a life with freedom of movement, the ability to choose what you eat, what you take, and to live in the state of abundant joy. This is our birthright. No person, or government needs to offer this to us. Choose wisely.
Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies. Both men and women over 40 experience these changes, whether mild or drastic, and each symptom affects the whole body in so many ways. When in balance, the body functions like a finely tuned instrument. When out of balance, there is disharmony and chaos within the system, as well as in other aspects of one's life.
