IV therapy has become an incredible enhancement to support health, wellness, and weight loss. Receiving nutrients through natural and whole foods are the best way to maintain good health and prevent chronic illness. However, so many individuals are deficient in nutrition, due to lack of time, lack of knowledge about balanced nutrition, or have an underlying health condition that inhibits the breakdown and absorption of nutrients. With IV therapy nutrients bypass the digestive tract where vitamins and minerals can sometimes be completely lost. (article continued on next page) SPRING ‘19

Instead it is being fed straight into the bloodstream where these nutrients can be easily utilized by the body’s cells to carry out essential functions. The “Athletic Drip” is an excellent option!

BENEFITS OF CBD OIL WHAT IS CBD OIL? CBD is the abbreviation used for cannabidiol, which is a compound extracted from the cannabis plant. By diluting the extract with an oil, such as avocado, coconut, or hemp seed, CBD can be used for therapeutic use. Even though CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, it does not contain THC (the psychoactive compound that is found in marijuana). Just as many flower families include several variations, there are different forms of hemp from which these compounds derive. CBD oil can provide therapeutic relief in many forms, with many individuals reporting feeling healthier in areas of sleep, appetite and digestion, mood, immune function, pain, motor control, as well as pleasure and reward centers in the brain. HOW DOES CBD OIL WORK? After several decades of research scientists have discovered that the mammalian body and brain house an endocannabinoid system (ECS) with specific receptors located in the brain, central and peripheral nervous systems, digestive tract, immune system, and endocrine system. This is a unique communication system within the body that affect many functions, including how a person may react, think, and move. It is similar to a lock and key model with two primary receptor points. The first primary cannabinoid receptor is CB1 and the second is CB2, both functioning as lock models. CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are more often found on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract, and in the peripheral nervous system. Endocannabinoids are specialized keys that unlock the possibilities of the ECS, and strive for optimal balance, or homeostasis, within the body and brain. Most people don’t know that cannabidiols naturally exist within several systems of the human body.


HOW DO I USE CBD OIL? There are multiple methods in which CBD can be administered. Sublingual drops under the tongue and using a vape pen are the most popular among CBD users. These methods have the quickest delivery of symptom relief, due to the high levels of bioavailability. Capsules are also available for oral use; however, the effects may take longer to notice. This is due to the fact that it is reliant on digestion and absorption factors. Topical use for various skin conditions, as well as chronic pain, and inflammation, are becoming more and more popular because the CBD is well absorbed into the skin and tissue. Among many CBD users has been shown to result in faster relief and relaxation is muscle tissue.

WISHING THE EFFECTS OF YOUR INJECTABLES LASTED LONGER?

ask about PDO Thread lift procedure


HOW IS A PDO THREAD LIFT PERFORMED? A local anesthetic (usually lidocaine) is injected into the treatment area to minimize the discomfort of the procedure. Next, a small stylus is used to permeate the skin and insert the PDO threads. Through precise placement, the PDO threads are internally anchored under the surface thereby creating external effects which mimic a plastic surgeon’s re-draping procedure. However, because the procedure is minimally invasive, the entire process takes between 45-60 minutes to complete and requires very little recovery time. Hence the marketing verbiage of “have a face-lift over lunch.” WHAT ISSUES ARE ADDRESSED BY A PDO THREAD LIFT? A PDO thread lift can be used to address issues of structural improvements, volume

improvements and overall lifting of the skin. Also, a PDO thread lift improves the amount of collagen in the skin as the PDO thread converts directly to collagen. Often a PDO thread lift is the next level of solutions once fillers and injectables are no longer sufficient. WHAT IS THE PDO THREAD LIFT PROCESS AT ESSENTIALS MEDISPA AND SALON? At Essentials Medispa and Salon, an initial consultation occurs with our ANRP Brian Whaley in which your specific issues and concerns are addressed. Because every face is unique and individual, Brian will create a long term treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results. Visit our website for an interview with Brian in which he explains the process in further detail.

On November 8, 2016 the state of Florida legalized the medicinal use of marijuana. The passing of this law bridged a path for thousands of patients throughout the state to seek alternative methods of coping with their chronic and debilitating conditions through what is considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;compassionate care.â&#x20AC;? In order to be approved for the use of medical marijuana each patient must see a boardcertified physician, such as Dr. Michael Lesser, that reviews their medical history, medications, supplements, and gains a better understanding of what each patient is experiencing based on their condition. There are a variety of medical marijuana pharmaceuticals that treat several conditions. Based on the medical expertise of Dr. Lesser and his exclusive training, he can use the information provided to prescribe the particular dosage and ratio of medical marijuana for each patient. The prescriptions are entered into the state medical marijuana registry, and once applications are reviewed by the state, patients can access their prescription. Ultimately, this can improve and relieve a multitude of disabling symptoms the patient is frequently experiencing. There are many

individuals who are seeking to learn more about medical marijuana and determine if it is the right choice for themselves, or a loved one. As a wellness facility that supports compassionate care for patients, it is our mission at Essentials MediSpa and Salon to educate and empower our patients to our highest ability, so each person can make the best decision for themselves and their future. WHAT IS MEDICAL MARIJUANA? Medical marijuana is a form of marijuana that uses the natural and intrinsic properties of the marijuana plant to treat certain conditions. Over the past 5-10 years several scientific studies have shown that medicinal marijuana improves many chronic conditions. Based on the data gathered, there are considerable amounts of natural medicinal properties in the marijuana plant, that include THC, terpenes, and cannabinoids. These properties interact in specific ways with functions of the body, through existing cellular receptors to create positive pharmacological effects.


HOW CAN MEDICAL MARIJUANA HELP WITH THE “OPIOID CRISIS”? It has been demonstrated through many well documented studies, and even within our own practice, that multiplicities of individuals have been able to reduce or completely replace prescribed opiates with medical marijuana. WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA? Individuals who are suffering from conditions, such as: • Cancer • Glaucoma • Epilepsy • HIV+ • AIDS • PTSD • Crohn’s disease • Parkinson’s disease • Multiple sclerosis • Terminal illness • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis • Medical conditions of the same class or comparable to those listed • Chronic non-malignant pain

WHAT ARE THE MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT MEDICAL MARIJUANA? Many medical marijuana patients fear that they may get “high” from using the pharmaceutical products purchased at the dispensary. They are concerned that medical marijuana may interfere with their daily routine and responsibilities. The wonderful thing about the medical marijuana is that patients can titrate their doses to meet their individual and specific needs. There are multiple methods of delivery, and the dispensary staff members are extremely helpful in assisting with particular strains to medicate various symptoms. That being said, patients can increase their intake or decrease their intake when necessary. Unlike taking opioids, they do not run the risks of overdose.

Benefits of

BHRT It’s time to love your life

again...

Do you struggle with low energy, overall malaise or unexpected bursts of anger? Do you feel yourself slipping into unexplained sadness or moments of foggy brain syndrome where you are forgetful, or things seem unclear? Does going to bed at night bring on hot flashes, night sweats or restless tossing? What is going on with your sex drive; or if you are saying, “What sex drive?” ... It may be time to consider that your hormones are out of balance. What does this mean? Simply put, as we age our hormone supplies are depleted and become unbalanced causing our bodies to respond with unexplained and often problematic symptoms. These symptoms have a significant impact on our quality of life. If you answered yes to any of the statements above it’s time to contact Essentials Medispa and Salon to book a consultation appointment and discuss your symptoms. Through the use of saliva testing, we can accurately measure SPRING ‘19

the levels of hormones that need to be kept in balance for optimal living. Our staff of licensed practitioners is devoted to helping you craft a personalized treatment plan that will get you feeling like yourself in no time at all. Utilizing the latest technology and medical advances, we can fill in the gaps of what your body is missing. WHAT IS HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY? Hormone replacement therapy is an effective way to relieve symptoms associated with declining hormone levels. It is the process of augmenting the naturally occurring hormones in your body. Essentials Medispa and Salon offers Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) because we believe natural hormones are the best option for everyone. Bioidentical hormones are created from plant estrogens and are chemically indistinguishable to human hormones. Because the hormones are identical on a molecular level to your own, this therapy is considered a “natural” solution.


WHY DO HORMONE LEVELS CHANGE? As we age, hormone levels decrease naturally. Because hormones are utilized to regulate almost every system in our body and have a direct impact on our overall health, it is vital to address this decline. Exposure to toxins in our diets, skin care products, and the general environment may accelerate this natural decline of hormones. The imbalance can be felt in many ways and should be brought back into balance as seamlessly as possible. The goal of BHRT is to provide proper and sufficient quantities of lacking hormones in formulations that most closely match the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural hormones. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BHRT? The benefits you will experience after about one month of BHRT will feel miraculous. Your sleep and mood will improve which will set you up for improvements in other areas as well. The symptoms related to hot flashes and night sweats will disappear as your body will no longer need to overreact to imbalanced hormones. Most patients report that the overall quality of their life is improved. Unresolved symptoms translate to chronic distress which negatively affects everyone. Bringing your hormones back into balance allows you to focus on living your best life. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to continue to suffer just because hormone decline is a natural part of life. We have ways to support you in the process and alleviate your symptoms. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation.
