Treatments for Cleft Lip and Palate

It is important to get treatments at the right time so that your kids can enjoy a normal life ahead By Azra Shuib | April 11th, 2021 Although upsetting for any parent, cleft lip and palate is quite common. Here is a statistic of how many babies are born with Cleft Lip / Cleft Palate, according to the CDC website: · About 1 in every 1,600 babies is born with cleft lip with cleft palate in the United States. · About 1 in every 2,800 babies is born with cleft lip without cleft palate in the United States. · About 1 in every 1,700 babies is born with cleft palate in the United States. There is no known cause for this condition, so these birth malformations cannot be prevented. It can sometimes be associated with genetic conditions, environmental factors and medication taken by the mother while she is pregnant. Some drugs may cause Cleft Lip and Palate, such as anti-seizure, anticonvulsant drugs, acne drugs, drugs used to treat cancer, arthritis and psoriasis. Is there a difference between Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate? A cleft is a split in the upper lip and/or the roof of the mouth (palate). Babies can be born with just a cleft lip, a cleft palate, or even both. The gap is caused by the incomplete development of the baby's face in the womb. They mostly occur as isolated birth defects and can be corrected. A cleft lip may just affect 1 side of the lip or there may be 2 clefts (unilateral or bilateral). A cleft palate can be an opening at the back of the mouth, or it may be a split that runs all the way from the back to the front of the mouth. Untreated cleft lip and palate may lead to these issues: · Difficulty to breastfeed or feed on a normal bottle as they cannot form a good seal with their mouth. · Dental problems, as the child's teeth, may not develop properly and they may be at a higher risk of tooth decay. · Hearing problems, especially to some babies with a cleft palate, as they are more vulnerable to ear infections and fluid build-up in the ears. · Speech problems, including unclear or nasal-sounding speech. Can it be corrected? Yes. In most babies, a series of surgeries can be conducted to restore normal function as they are growing up. This way, they can enjoy a better quality of life.   Cleft Lip Repair Cleft lip repair is ideally done when your baby is within 3 to 6 months of age. In the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions on both sides of the cleft and create flaps of tissue. The flaps will then be stitched together, including the lip muscles. This creates and restores a more normal lip appearance, structure and function. Initial nasal repair if needed will usually be done at the same time. This procedure is done with general anesthesia.   Cleft Palate Repair Cleft Palate repair is ideally done by the age of 12 months, or earlier if possible. During the repair procedure, the surgeon will make incisions on both sides of the cleft and reposition the tissues and muscles to create a fake roof. After that, the repair is then stitched closed. This procedure is done with general anesthesia.   For children with cleft palate, an ear tube surgery may also be done. Ear tubes can be placed to reduce the risk of chronic ear fluid build-up, which can lead to hearing loss. The surgery involves placing tiny bobbin-shaped tubes in the eardrum to create an opening to prevent fluid build-up.   Possible Side Effects Although getting the surgery will significantly improve your child's appearance, ability to eat, breathe and talk, as well as the overall quality of life, it's best to talk to the doctor regarding the risks. As with all surgeries, there are some risks and it's important to understand them. Risks in the treatment can include: · Bleeding · Infection · Poor healing · Widening or elevation of scars · Temporary or permanent damage to nerves, blood vessels or other internal structures (rare) Therefore, when choosing a hospital for a treatment, it is best to go to hospitals renowned for their excellent care, expertise and service quality. Getting the best for your child is especially important to increase the best possible outcome.   Risk Factors According to the experts, some factors may increase the likelihood of a baby getting a cleft lip/cleft palate. The factors include: · Family history. · Exposure to substances during pregnancy, such as cigarettes, alcohol or certain medications. · There is also some evidence that links women who are diagnosed with diabetes before pregnancy may have an increased risk of having a baby with a cleft lip with or without cleft palate. · Obesity during pregnancy. According to studies, males are more likely to have a cleft lip with or without cleft palate, whereas females are more likely to develop cleft palate without cleft lip.   Prevention Steps Although Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate generally can’t be prevented, there are some tips to lower your risks and get a better understanding of the condition.  If you know that you have a family history of the birth defect, consider getting genetic counselling before becoming pregnant. This can help you to get more information and proceed with any possible prevention measure. Besides that, it is also to alter your lifestyle and make a change for the better. Take prenatal vitamins as recommended by your doctor, practice a healthy diet and lifestyle; and refrain from tobacco and alcohol, as the use of tobacco and alcohol can increase your risk of having a baby with birth defects. All in all, it is important that you get much needed support if you know you are at risk, or if you have a baby with the condition. Since it can’t be prevented, any parent who finds out that their baby has the condition can feel a very emotional experience, and the whole treatment process can be overwhelming. Therefore, know that you are not alone. Talk to your doctor if you feel any psychological issues, get involved with cleft support groups and understand the condition deeper to know what is the best that you can do. Keep in mind that it is a treatable condition and a lot of children who are treated for cleft lip and palate grow up to live completely normal lives.

Treating and Preventing Alopecia with Scalp Microneedling

What Causes Hair Loss And How Scalp Microneedling Can Help By Kath Wong | April 2nd, 2021 While we are busy with everyday lives, it is important to never neglect the routine to check on your hair condition at least once in a while. There are a few common factors that could affect the health of our hair and result in hair thinning or hair loss.  A medical term known for hair loss is Alopecia. The condition causes hair to fall out and prevent them from growing back. With alopecia, the hair loss pattern occurs in small patches, which may connect and eventually become noticeable. This happens commonly among men, but women do report to experience it as well (making approximately 40% of the total people).  Causes of Alopecia 1. Aging As we age, our hair tends to thin when the hair follicles lose strength in producing new hair effectively; signs include a change in its colour and the gradual receding hairline. The sooner you notice that your hair is thinning, the more likely treatments could work. Although there is no permanent treatment available to reverse or stop the process from happening along with aging just yet, what we can do is to slow the cycle, like anti-aging.  2. Hormonal imbalances Hormonal imbalances that could develop in both men and women can influence hair loss. We often think that hormones either mean the level of estrogen or testosterone, but there is more to that as the hormones determining thyroid level is also capable of leading to hair thinning.  3. Lack of body nutrients Certain vitamins and minerals like iron and folic acid are known to help in enhancing the hair follicles to function properly. Lacking the essential ingredients can have a serious effect on your health and immune system, which also includes hair loss. 4. Stress Stress impacts our health in many ways, one of them involves our hair. While our hair follicles are trying to grow new hair, stress can act as a parasite to kill them. Also, it can cause the existing hair to loosen and fall earlier in the hair growth cycle.  5. Unsuitable hair products Some hair products can damage our hair follicles permanently; we must choose products that are suitable for the hair health and observe if we are allergic to any of the common ingredients that actually contribute to hair loss such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Diethanolamine (DEA), Fragrance, Imidazolidinyl Urea, and Sodium Chloride.  Scalp Microneedling Hair loss can be one of the serious emotional issues people suffer from. Scalp microneedling can help to improve the condition.  Microneedling is popularly known as a collagen-boosting skin treatment. The procedure is effective to diminish acne scars and improve skin tone and texture. It works by rolling over the tiny needles to pierce the surface and cause micro-injuries. Each injury is minuscule, nowhere near large enough to cause pain, bleeding, or scarring; only redness would be visible.  As a result of scalp microneedling, the scalp would respond to the “injuries” by boosting collagen production, to treat and prevent hair loss. Collagen is necessary to maintain healthy hair follicles; without the sufficient amount of collagen available, hair follicles could weaken and this would lead to slow hair growth and eventually become dormant. While the collagens are being produced, microneedling also helps to improve blood flow, bringing nutrients to repair and nourish the scalp.  The hair-regrowth cycle with scalp microneedling can be noticed as early as within 12 weeks. Many people would opt-in for a combination with PRP treatment for more effective results.  Check these pages for more information on hair treatments: Scalp Microneedling @ Istanbul   || PRP Hair Treatment @ Istanbul   ||   Hybrid Hair Treatment @ Istanbul   ||   PRP Hair Transplant @ Bangkok   ||   PRP Hair Treatment @ Bangkok

Regular Spa Sessions - Necessity or Luxury?

Are The Benefits Worth The Hype and Commitment? By Azra Shuib | March 26th, 2021 Any photos or advertisements about spa getaways are hard to miss. They look enticing, luxurious and relaxing. But is it as serene as it appears to be?  Historically, spa treatments have deep roots in human civilization as a healing practice. Back then, traditional communities built bathhouses, saunas, hammams and other facilities for bathing and beautifying purposes. Nowadays, spas seem to be an extravagant indulgence that not a lot of people are into, especially in regular sessions. A spa experience is one of the most enjoyable treats you can get for yourself. It is the best way to care for your body after a tiring day-to-day hustle at work and in life. Spa sessions have also been proven to help calm the mind and reduce stress, ensuring you to look and feel your best in managing your routines. The benefits for your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing are fantastic, so why not get a little more pampering time in a restful setting? Spa treatments are abundant and not only consist of massages. Spas also offer facials, mani pedi, slimming treatments, and hair therapies, among others. Here are some reasons why you should get more spa sessions as a self-care step: 1. Relieves Aches and Pains Spas are famous for their massage service - and for good reasons. Today’s lifestyle can cause a lot of pain to accumulate in your body and affect your quality of life. Sitting for too long has been a big issue in today’s society. Apart from that, old injuries, wrong postures, repetitive actions or strenuous jobs can bring negative effects if not treated. Hence, massage techniques that focus on your problem areas can help to reduce the pain by increasing blood flow to the area, facilitating the healing process to take place. Massages like Hot Stone Massage, Thai Massage, Balinese Massage, and other types can help you to relax. The right type of massage should be chosen based on your issues or desired results. Undeniably, a massage can be painful or uncomfortable especially if you are a first-timer, but the benefits are worth it and you’ll definitely get used to it, if not wanting more sessions. Uses of aromatherapy oil, heated stones or specific kneading/rolling methods in a massage can further enhance the therapeutic experience. 2. Reduces Stress and Improves Your Mood Continuous stress can impair your productivity and focus, hence why it’s important to take a break in between. And what is a better way to enjoy your ‘me time’ other than a trip to the spa?  A good massage is known to increase serotonin and lower cortisol levels, helping you to fight off negative emotions better. The tranquil setting of a spa adds on to the stress-reducing experience. Not only that, spa treatments aim to make you look better with radiant skin and restored energy. Facials, body scrubs, baths and wraps can nourish your skin with ingredients your body have been longing for. Not only you get to feel good on the inside out, but also outside in! 3. Improves Sleep Quality It’s no surprise that a lot of people are not getting enough sleep nowadays. Accumulation of stress, lifestyle changes and hormonal imbalance are among the factors leading to inadequate Zzzz’s.  Spa treatments are a great escape from your busy lifestyle or the best way to unwind and take a break from stress. A spa session is also a good way to reward yourself after a hectic period. Body or facial massages can help to relax your muscles, lower your blood pressure and regulate your body systems - all situations that will aid in a good night's sleep. A lot of people who fall asleep during massage are just the perfect examples of how relaxing spa sessions can be. 4. Aids in Weight Loss A lot of spa treatments focus on weight loss and detoxifications. Hot massages, herbal baths and usage of antioxidants can help the body to ward off toxins and burn calories. Some massages can also help the body system to break down the fatty deposits and get rid of toxins, such as Deep Tissue Massage and Lymphatic Massage. A lot of specialists also encourage drinking a lot of water after getting your massage, so that it will be easier for the body to get rid of toxins. So if you ever feel ‘stuffed’ and in need of some detoxification, a spa session is always a great idea. It’s Spa Time! We often forget just how our body needs extra pampering alongside physical and mental health. Giving it a special session for nourishment under the hands of those who really care about our wellbeing can be very good for our overall quality of life. So next time, just take a break from your daily grind when needed and splurge in a spa session. Your body will definitely thank you for it.

Explore Your Inherited Potential and Health Risks with DNA Tests

Your DNA holds the key to a better lifestyle and future By Azra Shuib | March 18th, 2021 Did you know that discovering more about your DNA can help you make better decisions for your health, dietary intake, family planning and even for your innate talents? This is the reason why DNA tests have grown in popularity because they are the window to the information in your body. DNA is the hereditary material that carries instructions for your body's functions. A DNA test can detect changes or mutations in your genes that may cause illness or disease. In some tests, your genetic sequencing is examined to determine if you are predisposed to certain traits or inner potential.   DNA Testing and Your Hidden Abilities It is widely known that DNA testing can reveal a lot about a person’s health, but how does it assess people’s potentials in certain fields? DNA testing compares a person's genetic sequence to tens of thousands of records in DNA databases. Using this technique, it is possible to decode your genes that carry some talents, such as reading ability, stress handling, creativity, and memorizing ability, among others. This way, you can understand your innate abilities and preferences better according to your genetics, which can give you an idea of which field you can realize your inner potential and excel in. Our DNA makes each one of us unique in our own ways. With little observation, you can see how some groups of people prefer to stay up at night while others tend to get up early. There are also those who accept rejection much more easily than other people. All of these characteristics can be found in your genes, even if you are unaware of some of them. This can be a helpful tool in career development, or in building up your child's talents and passion.   DNA Testing and Your Health DNA testing can also determine your genetic susceptibility to different health conditions. Certain markers in your genes are linked to certain diseases, and doctors can use this information to predict your chances of developing the condition. It is important to note that a positive test does not always mean you’ll contract the disease. For example, having the BRCA1 or BRCA2 breast cancer genes means that you are at risk for breast cancer, although it does not guarantee that you will develop the disease. However, having a mutation for some conditions like Huntington’s disease can signal that the disease will eventually develop. In deciding what is best for you, it's important to consult with a doctor regarding the result if there is anything that concerns you. This will enable you to craft early treatment strategies and enjoy a better quality of life ahead.  Aside from that, it's best to manage dietary needs, allergies, and fitness routines based on your genetic needs in order to do the best for your health. Not all of us know what sensitivities we have, or the best diet for our body. That's why in DNA tests, reports would include recommendations to shift your lifestyle to the better - this covers the nutrition you should take up more, foods or allergens you should avoid and the best exercises for your body. The same health routine may not work for everyone as some people may be predisposed to having a lack of Omega-3, Vitamin C or certain thresholds in fitness regimens.   DNA Testing and Genetic Disorders The roles of DNA testing in evaluating your health is much more extensive than you would expect. If you want to start a family, DNA testing can help you be more prepared. In some cases, healthy people have mutations in their genes that are linked to genetic disorders, making them carriers for the disease. If you have this carrier gene, you have the probability to pass the mutation on to your children, who will then be carriers of that same condition. But if your partner also carries the genetic disorder, your child may develop the disease. Among the genetic disorders that are possible to find out using DNA testing include: Biotinidase deficiency G-6-PD Gaucher disease Beta thalassemia Niemann-Pick's disease Maple syrup urine disease Phenylketonuria Wilson's disease degeneration Sickle cell anemia Tay-Sachs disease Spinal muscular atrophy Severe combined immunodeficiency disease X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency To assess the risk of your child actually contracting the disease, you'll need to meet with a genetic counsellor. Considering the whole situation, it is very beneficial to take a DNA test so that you can be well prepared in planning your pregnancy and taking other needed interventions to ensure that you and your partner can have a healthy baby.   How DNA Testing Works DNA is the same in every cell in your body. Therefore, DNA testing can be done through a blood test or a cheek swab (salivary test). The DNA in the saliva is derived from cells shed from the mouth linings as well as white blood cells. These cells are collected, and the DNA contained within them is extracted using a variety of methods. Studies have shown that salivary DNA is equivalent in quantity and purity to blood DNA and that salivary DNA is stable when handled properly. Nowadays, at-home DNA test kits have made the testing even easier. You do not need to physically go to DNA testing labs to learn more about your genes. It is now possible to order the kits online and a saliva collection kit (typically containing a saliva collection tube or a cheek swab, funnel and an instruction list) will be sent to you.  You can take the salivary sample at the comfort of your own home, and ship it back to the lab. Then, a personalized report will be sent to you, most of the time via email or a secured website. Unlock your potential to live a more fulfilling and healthier life by exploring your DNA and what innovative testing can tell you.

A sneak peek into NK Cell Therapy

Intravenous therapy for the healthier immune system By Kath Wong | March 17th, 2021 What is NK Cell Therapy? Natural Killer (NK) cells are one of the sub-types of white blood cells present in humans with a role of first-line defence for the body’s natural immune system. They are capable of differentiating the target cells that are infected and uninfected (normal cells), which then their role is to eliminate the infected cells and this may help to control early signs of cancer. NK cells respond quickly to a wide variety of pathological challenges; they also enhance the body’s immune response by releasing certain chemicals called cytokines which support other immune cells in the body.    The Use of NK Cells Natural Killer cells in high volume with full potency have the ability to fight off many diseases which include cancer and immunocompromising diseases such as malignancies, viruses, HIV, and Aids. Large amounts of NK cells strengthen the patient’s immune system. Not only do NK cells eliminate the infected target cells, but they also work to prevent the recurrence of those viral or cancerous cells after with its stronger memory to attack.  Moreover, NK cell therapy also improves blood circulation throughout the body; and with the enhanced immune system, the effect can result in better skin quality, normalized skin cells turnover, as well as the better functioning of skin cells.    What Is Done During NK Cell Therapy? NK cells are the most difficult to be produced by the body. For effective results, the patients are required to receive over 5 to 10 billion NK cells for the best efficacy. The procedure involves consultation, proposal of the appropriate treatment protocol, and blood tests to check for any infectious diseases. Once set, a 50 ml blood sample will be collected through an intravenous method to start the NK cell therapy. The blood sample will be taken to filter out unwanted substances and cultured to multiply the NK cells. The culture period takes about 2 weeks to complete. Transfusion of the cultured NK cells will be performed intravenously.    Before Receiving NK Cell Therapy Just like every other therapy, you must know the do's and dont's as well as how to prepare yourself for NK Cell Therapy. Here are the things you might want to know prior to the treatment: Ensure that the blood samples are processed and cultured stringent in a tightly controlled Cell Culture Center (CPC). Safety tests such as Sterility Test, Mycoplasma Denial Test, and Endotoxin Test should be done prior to the transfusion along with performance tests which include the test for a total number of cells, NK cell content, cell viability, and cell damage activity. It is important to note that this is not a full or sure cure for cancer, but a great adjunct with other therapeutic agents or medications prescribed to the patients. NK cell therapy is not painful and has minimal side effects. The patients may feel light nauseous or fatigue but hospitalization is not required. A small percentage of patients’ immune systems may reject the cells, in which symptoms include fever, rash, or vomiting and the doctor should be contacted immediately.  The treatment is recommended especially for those who seek a solution for the weakened immune systems; though it is not a full cure for most diseases, NK cell therapy is believed to be the right step in treating malignant cells.  Browse through NK Cell Therapies at our affiliate centres: NK Cell Therapy @ Kobe, Japan   ||   NK Cell Therapy @ Phuket, Thailand

How to Manage Stress During COVID-19 Pandemic

Although all of us are isolated, know that you are not alone By Azra Shuib | March 10th, 2021 By now, it’s not difficult to understand why a huge number of people are overwhelmed with uncertainties and unknowns. A lot of people are working tirelessly around the clock to reduce the COVID-19 spread while some are fighting to just live calmly. To be caught in these unprecedented times can cause one to be in a lot of stress.   Those who might become more stressed include: People at high-risk for developing a severe case of COVID-19 if contracted Healthcare workers and other frontline workers Children and teens Patients with mental health conditions Patients with chronic illnesses who need to regularly visit the hospital People who are facing financial instability due to the pandemic It's substantial to equip yourself by learning how to manage stress so that you could arrange your thoughts rationally and overcome it. Above all, it’s also important that you stay healthy as there is no worse timing for you to fall ill especially at times like this. Coping with stress in a good way will make you, your loved ones and your community stronger. Here are some ways to manage stress during COVID-19 pandemic:     1. Control your news and social media consumption As a lot of us are spending most of our time by ourselves. And that means more time with our smartphones. It seems like the timeline is flooded with news reports and health statistics every hour, bringing undue stress. Undeniably, there are also positive messages spattered across to keep our spirits up. Hence it is important to choose the kind of content we would like to see. Follow only the reliable news sources and avoid accounts that serve unchecked information. It is good to stay informed, but it is equally pivotal that we control it the best way we can as a selfcare step.      2. Have a new routine to keep you busy Consider waking up at the same time each day and have a routine to avoid soaking up too much pandemic news or wasting time scrolling the screen. Get in healthy activities such as journaling, regular house cleaning, cooking healthy foods and exercising. Although the internet can induce stress, it’s also a getaway to learning new stuff everyday. Start learning new recipes, crafts or skills; or you can even get in a workout session with a lot of videos and online classes available on social media.

Learn to say ‘no’ so you could deliver a better output each day. Keep in mind that your tasks will continue everyday and won’t be finished, therefore look into the bigger picture and don’t stress too much about the small, meticulous stuff.     5. Follow expert-recommended health guidelines Practice the new norm as instructed by the World Health Organization. This includes frequent hand-washing, physical distancing, practicing respiratory etiquette and applying good hygiene measures. This can help you to stay safe and confident during this pandemic.  Listed are the covid tests available at our affiliated clinics / hospitals.

Pandemic Woes: How to Manage Lockdown Weight Gain

Being in isolation is not an excuse By Azra Shuib | March 3rd, 2021 Quarantine weight gain shouldn’t be a surprise to a lot of people. Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, our routines have been disrupted, causing stress and mindless habits. But now most of us have managed to understand and practice the new norm better each day, so with some lifestyle shifts, there are ways to get back on track and reverse the scale. Causes of weight gain can be plenty, but some factors can largely affect your lockdown pounds: Stress Living with COVID-19 has altered our lives in a major way. We have been isolated for longer than what we’ve been through before and it’s uncertain when things are going to be normal again. These changes can cause stress even when you don’t realize it. And all the stress can lead to weight gain. When we are stressed, though we might not realize or even ignore it, the body still senses stress, and the fight-or-flight response is activated. This stimulates the body to not give up any calories in order to use it when energy is needed to fight or flee. Learning more about this physiological response can help you to learn when to relax and manage stress. Mindless Snacking If you love to snack during work, then the work-from-home lifestyle has probably amplified that habit. You’re at home longer, the kitchen is nearer, and a growing number of people are cooking meals at home too. Previously, on-the-go lifestyle means eating breakfast and lunch that could fit easily in our schedule. But now the options are endless. If we let loose on our eating habit, weight gain is expected. Less Sleep The body needs enough sleep to recover and balance the ‘hunger hormones’. When we are deprived of sleep, the body makes more ghrelin (the hormone that tells your brain that you’re hungry and have to increase food intake), and less leptin (the hormone that tells your brain that you are full and inhibits hunger).  Being sleep deprived can lead to hormonal balance, making you feel hungrier and more tired. Therefore, getting enough rest and quality sleep will definitely improve your appetite. No Exercise A lot of us may find that exercising activities have reduced during this quarantine season since we can’t go out. If you have always associated exercises with outdoors, then it may have been difficult to maintain an active lifestyle. Some people even have a hard time to maintain good mental health, let alone a good workout routine.   So How To Reduce The Pandemic Gains? The first thing you should understand is that weight loss during this pandemic season is completely possible. A good mindset is necessary to shed excessive pounds.   Do you need to lose weight? Well, as a general rule, a healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 25. And if your BMI is between 25 and 30, it means you are overweight and it’s a good time to adjust your diet and routine before your weight increases. When BMI reaches 30, it will get more difficult to lose weight. In all cases, commitment, discipline and a strong will are necessary to achieve your ideal weight. And do not chastise the weighing scale and mirror as you would need to track your progress. Take the opportunity to be away from people and all hustle and bustle of the city to really focus on managing your weight.   Inch Loss Strategies Manage Your Stress and Allow Emotional Breaks In the midst of so much uncertainty and saddening news, allow yourself to take a break and indulge in relaxing activities. If you need to take a day off, please take it to re-plan your life or clear up your mind. Meditation, light exercises, a good sleep or a digital detox for a period of time can be beneficial for your mental wellbeing. Explore your unaddressed issues and internal pain, pressures or tension. This can help you to cope better with your emotions. Besides that, it is a good idea to set up a daily plan to ensure a productive day that can enhance how you feel about your day. Set a daily wake-up and bed time, plan your meals ahead and more importantly, take breaks when you feel overwhelmed or tired.   A Healthy Food Regimen Now is a good time to learn new healthy recipes and rethink your relationship with food. If you are cooking at home more often now, include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats. It’s time to focus on getting the fullness from the taste rather than quantity.  What could be more difficult is controlling your portions. It’s so easy to indulge in excessive amounts at home since you have nothing else to do. Take these steps: When you are hungry, try drinking a big glass of water before you eat. Then wait for 15 minutes to see if you’re still hungry. This can help to ‘fill up’ your tummy a bit. Eat proteins first as they make you feel fuller. Avoid too many carbohydrates that can cause swings in blood sugar. Avoid snacking with unhealthy foods that are high in sugar.  Try to slot in exercises in between your daily routines, such as in the afternoon or in the evening after work. Shift your activities to distract yourself from unproductive activities that can lead to snacking. Shop carefully and responsibly. If you know you will eat a whole package of biscuits in one sitting, then don’t buy it. If you don’t have it in your kitchen, you won’t eat it.   Regular Exercises Just because you are physically distancing from the gym, it does not mean you should stop exercising. Cleaning the house, a simple jog up and down the house can help you get it going as well. Plus, online workout class is abundant online. You just have to schedule regular daily exercise sessions and stick to it. Furthermore, it boosts your immune system and improves your mood.   Good Night's Sleep What is more important is getting enough rest. If you want a high quality sleep, stop staring at screens at least 1 hour before bed. Schedule a daily wake-up time and bedtime, and stick to it. Allow your body to recover and balance out your hormones so that it could function better.   You Can Do It! A lot of people fail at weight loss, but a lot of people win against it too. Believe in your own journey and ensure that you take care of your health in the process. It’s a tough time to live in currently, but it also means a good time to make the best of what’s already available. Strive to attain your goals and remember that you can definitely do it!

All You Need to Know About Sunekos

More than just a skin plumping hyaluronic acid injection By Kath Wong | February 27th, 2021 To achieve flawless and youthful complexion, we often find ourselves looking endlessly for the most effective and best suited treatment to improve and maintain our skin conditions. As we age, the skin tends to degrade gradually; this causes volume loss, which then leads to thin and fragile skin with visible fine lines as well as wrinkles. Cosmetic injectables dermal fillers are always known to reduce wrinkles and restore the volume underneath your skin by pumping hyaluronic acid into your skin, but sometimes you might wonder if there is more to that - the smoother and more natural-looking results that nobody would notice the obvious enhancement - Sunekos may be the ultimate solution you have been looking for all this while.    What Exactly Is Sunekos? In a simple explanation, Sunekos is an enhanced formula of hyaluronic acid injection. Unlike the general fillers, Sunekos injection is a patented formula which combines hyaluronic acid with 6 types of amino acids. Known as the essential building block of elastin and collagen, amino acids are natural ingredients that help to regenerate the ExtraCellular Matrix (ECM) of your skin; which could give out a more effective result by the mechanism called ‘Dermal Biogenesis’.    What Can Dermal Biogenesis Do For Your Skin? While the typical hyaluronic acid injections can restore the volume loss by hydrating and making your skin look plumped, Sunekos with the unique combination consisting of 6 amino acids namely Glycine, L-proline, L-leucine, L-lysine HCl, L-valine, and L-alanine can trigger Dermal Biogenesis, which is capable of true skin regeneration by stimulating fibroblasts, or skin cells, to produce new collagen and elastin, repairing, and rebuilding skin.  Clinical trials have showed that hyaluronic acid itself also stimulates collagen production and acts in biorevitalization, which also stimulates fibroblasts; but with the synergistic effect of amino acids, the reaction can now directly target and stimulate ECM fibroblasts for a more rapid rebuild of dermal layers. Sunekos is ideal for loose, crepey, thin skin as well as the loss of volume around the eyes. Severe wrinkles can be reduced, and the hydrating effect benefits both the superficial and deep layers of skin. Moreover, it offers a skin lifting effect as well.   More About Sunekos There are 2 options available which can be performed separately or in combination, depending on your skin condition - Sunekos 200 and Sunekos 1200. Sunekos 200 contains low molecular weight HA, suitable for face, neck, décolletage, and hands of younger people whereas Sunekos 1200 is formulated with medium molecular weight HA, specially designed for additional ‘cushioning’ in the case of lax, sagging skin, or deeper wrinkles and facial lines.  Sunekos injection is recommended as a 4-part treatment with a gap of 7 to 10 days apart to achieve the intended results. After that, maintenance sessions can be done every 6 months to keep the perfect results. The treatment can be combined with microneedling, skin peels, laser rejuvenations, anti-wrinkles injection, PRP, etc. as according to your skin needs and preference. On a side note, as Sunekos focuses on stimulating natural elastin and collagen production, you will have to give it at least a week's time after completing all 4 sessions for the improvement to gradually be noticed.  Book sunekos at our affiliated clinic now for more rejuvenated skin: Sunekos @ Ginza, Japan

Stress and Anxiety Management with Breathwork

The long-term solution for your well-being By Kath Wong | February 11th, 2021 Stress is something people tend to face daily, especially now since the pandemic hits. What’s important is how we can learn to cope with it. Most people experience both stress and anxiety combined from time to time. Do you know what is the difference between the two? Stress is any demand placed on the brain or physical body, the feeling is often triggered by any event that makes you feel frustrated or nervous; while anxiety is a feeling of fear, worry or unease.    What does it feel like? Stress and anxiety can produce psychological as well as physical symptoms. Everyone experience it differently, but the common emotional symptoms include the feeling of impending doom, panic or nervousness, difficulty concentrating, irrational anger, restlessness; whereas physical symptoms include stomach ache, muscle tension, headache, rapid breathing, fast heartbeat, sweating, shaking, dizziness, frequent urination, change in appetite, trouble sleeping, diarrhea, and fatigue. When the stress and anxiety prolongs, people may start to experience negative health-related outcomes which accumulate to developing heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, as well as depression. There are also disorders that can contribute to feeling anxious and stressed on a daily basis and for prolonged periods of time such as: Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a common anxiety disorder which is characterized by uncontrollable worrying. People who suffer this condition are always anxious about bad things happening to them or their loved ones, while they often are not able to identify the source or reason behind the worry.  Panic disorder Panic disorder is a condition that causes panic attacks, defined by the moments of extreme fear accompanied by the combination of a pounding heart, shortness of breath, and a fear of impending doom.  Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by the condition that causes flashbacks or anxieties as the result from traumas experienced such as bad accidents. Social phobia Social phobia is when shakiness or nervousness occurs in situations that involve interacting with others.  Obsessive-compulsive disorder  Obsessive-compulsive disorder causes repetitive thoughts and the compulsion drawn to complete certain ritual actions.      How can the Breathwork help? There are various ways to cope with stress and anxiety such as eating a balanced diet, limiting caffeine and alcohol consumption, getting enough sleep, having regular exercise, meditating, etc., but to manage and solve the condition in a long run may require you to work on the one important thing that many people tend to not pay attention to: the breathwork. Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercises and techniques performed to improve the mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. It is believed that breathing can help to restore equilibrium between the body, mind, emotions and spirit; hence this therapy involves breathing exercises in a conscious and systematic way to improve your organ function, focus, clarity and thought processes.  The normal respiration rate for adults to breathe in 1 minute is between 12 to 20 times, and the experience and process with breathwork will be different in everyone. Inhalation can help to increase energy levels and activates more awakeness, while exhalation can relax the whole body. The aim of this therapy is to achieve balance in both processes. Breath movement into the lower areas of the abdomen can improve digestion and nutrient uptake from food. It is also believed that the breathing rhythm can impact heart rate variability, which has been proven to be a key indicator to stress and anxiety. Creating more flow of breath can improve our body and its ability to manage stress and anxiety. Besides that, breathwork also gives an opportunity to process suppressed emotions and allow them to be released, giving a clearer mind. Book your session here: Breathwork @ Bali

Fire and Ice Facial Treatment

The well known Red-Carpet Facial for flawless skin achievement By Kath Wong | January 15th, 2020 The idea of having instant glowing and youthful skin has always been everyone’s dream; but with different skin types, many of us have probably spent quite a lot of time undergoing trial and error sessions just to find the particular facial treatment that suits our skin the most. There are various facial treatments available out there focusing on different skin conditions, including this particular non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure known as  Fire And Ice Facial Treatment. What is Fire And Ice Facial Treatment? Fire And Ice Facial Treatment is famous for its effect in resurfacing the skin rapidly and gently, which reduces wrinkles and fine lines while encouraging cellular renewal at the same time. It is a multi-step treatment that involves deep cleansing of the skin and application of a resurfacing mask, rejuvenating mask, serums, and moisturizers. With the function of cell renewal, the overall results that can be noticed after the treatment is a more brightened, softened, and tightened skin.  Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, Fire And Ice Facial do not require downtime; impressively, no peeling will be experienced after the session as well. The procedure is excellent for all skin types, but ideal for blemish-prone skin as it helps to deal with dark spots and hyperpigmentation effectively.  The Procedure From its name you could have guessed that the procedure for Fire And Ice Facial Treatment has got something to do with heat followed by skin soothing afterwards. That’s right - this unique combination is known in short as ‘Resurfacing and Rejuvenating’. The skin resurfacing mask has a light cinnamon scent, formulated with botanical acids, retinol, niacin, along with antioxidants and kaolin clay which gives out some tingling heat when it is applied onto your skin. With the slight burning sensation experience that lasts around 3 to 5 minutes, your skin will feel completely cleansed and refreshed as it undergoes the exfoliation to renew and reveal the softer and smoother skin texture with brighter complexion.  Once the ‘Fire’ treatment step has been done, it is then time for the ‘Ice’ part. The deep hydration cooling mask contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera gel, green tea extracts, grape seed extracts, as well as rosemary extracts; well-formulated mainly to soothe and rejuvenate your skin. This is the 20 minutes skin pampering part to help cool the initial ‘peel’ which also enhances the skin glowing effect. After that, serum, moisturizer as well as sunscreen will be applied accordingly to complete the facial treatment session.  Things To Do Before And After  As the ingredients used for the mask contain retinol and botanical acids, it is highly advised to not use any products with similar formulations especially anything with retinol and acids 5 days before and after the Fire And Ice Facial Treatment. Moreover, the ones who have just done waxing or laser treatments recently should not opt in for this facial session anytime soon to avoid any skin wounds or complications. Avoid picking, squeezing acne, or touching your skin. The skin has its own natural healing mechanism that has been triggered effectively by the mask, time must be given for it to form new cells for the better complexion. Furthermore, It is best to also avoid wearing heavy makeup or using highly chemical or perfumed products. A total series of 6 treatment sessions is recommended with 4 to 6 weeks gap for the ideal results. Last but not least, do remember to apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin!
