Be Careful Not to Lose Firmness

The rates of loss of firmness and elasticity of the skin varies from person to person, depending on their genetic makeup, general health, excessive sun exposure, the system of skin care, or lack of, and other factors. As the skin becomes less elastic, it also becomes drier the underlying fatty tissue begins to disappear as a result of the skin begins to sag. Our skin is less flexible, and wrinkles begin to form. At this stage, our skin is more easily injured, heals more slowly and tends to dry faster. The role of pH in acne As noted above, the pH of the skin is important and maintaining a pH slightly acid of about 5.5 is critical. PH of the skin is a major contributor to acne and other skin problems.

Propionibacterium acnes is a bacterium that normally lives on the skin and is a normal bacteria found in all people regardless of the presence or absence of acne. However, in people prone to acne, the number of P. acnes is much higher. It was found that the growth of this bacteria is highly dependent on pH of skin and growth is at its lowest in normal skin pH of 5.5. A slight shift towards the alkaline pH would provide a better environment in which to prosper. Importance of pH of the skin: Do’s and Don’ts One of the main culprits that radically alter the pH of the skin, is soap. Ordinary soaps, available in the market are highly alkaline (pH range 9-11) and raise the pH of the skin to be much more alkaline.

Aging the Body But Not the Mind

When we start to slow down as we age, we see that this is not usually needed to ignore the mind which should be kept active. Skips, walks without a body and without foundation. Or the mind gives body a hard time waiting, demanding, judging, and handling. The head of the Commitment is present as a natural expression, natural creativity. We are not interested in the struggle to expel a product that is smarter than the person coming. All we need do is allow our innate creativity to exit. It is a dance discipline and transparency. It is a balance of form and freedom.

We create boundaries and ways that allow most of the space and freedom of expression. We walked to the ease stiffness, skepticism to joy, from seriousness to play. This is a step by step which creates a basis of trust. People learn to trust themselves and the situation. They are no longer locked into a solid sense of me and them, or “otherness.” With soft eyes see the field or space. Then we see that the space itself is the dance. If past experience credentials, opinions and concepts. We have the experience of basic health and integrity of our community.

We are ready for true communication and understanding. It is an invitation to begin to leave care of the mind just relax, focus, how the body feels. We pay attention to the sensation. We relax, slow down, become acquainted with ourselves. We leave to the habit of judging. We appreciate genuine, even wonder, just by being present in the body at this time.

Modern Medicine Relies on Technology for Advances in Patient Care.

The constantly improving health care which most people have access to is largely a result of improved medical technology and techniques. Advancing technology improves health care professional’s ability to diagnose and treat patients, allowing people to live longer, more comfortably and in better health than in the past.

Today’s medical technologies are quite advanced and can detect many diseases sooner, more reliably and with less intervention. Some of the almost countless variety of technologies includes large and complex machines such as MRI scanners, PET scans, life-support machines, heart-lung machines, and much more. Some of the smaller items which are small and simple, but are nonetheless used to improve health and well-being and are also types of medical technologies include, dental floss, bandages, contact lenses, insulin pens and many, many more.

Medical technology can often mean the health care professionals that work in this field. These professionals use the variety of biological sciences in applied ways to improve health, such as applications of chemistry, immunohematology, hematology, immunology, microbiology, genetics, and many more. People working in these fields can be called Medical Technologists (MT) and Medical Laboratory Technicians (MLT) and also Clinical Laboratory Scientists (CLS) and Clinical Laboratory Technicians (CLT.)
