Happy Strap Medical Device for Children

Aneid Pharmaceutical Products has secured distribution rights for Happy Strap in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Registered as a Class 1 Medical device in Europe, Happy Strap is designed as an aid for infants and children with hypotonia (low muscle tone) to assist the control of ligament laxity and joint flexibility in the hips.

 

Happy Strap

  1. The major use of the product is to aid infants and children with hypotonia (low muscle tone) to assist the control of ligament laxity and joint flexibility in the hips (poor pelvic stability).
    Happy Strap limits excessive hip abduction and therefore limit reliance on solely sagittal plane movement when transferring from one position to another. This in turn encourages the development of musculature that enables movement in frontal and transverse planes;
  2. Hypotonia is commonly found in children with Down's syndrome and children with athetosis;
  3. Happy Strap, worn while sleeping, counteracts any tendency of the legs to splay.
  4. The product can be worn either over or under clothing day and night.

Irene Royal Jelly Effective for Hair Loss
Irene combines the healing properties of fresh Royal Jelly, Ginseng, Damiana Aphrodisiaca, Capsicum Minimum and Saw Palmetto to bring balance and restore health.


Irene Products

Here are the individual ingredients:

  • Saw Palmetto Extract - a natural ingredient in the Irene formula, works in a very similar way for men and women suffering from Androgenetic (male / female pattern) baldness. Androgenetic baldness occurs due to the effect that high blood levels of the androgen dihydroxytestosterone (DHT) have on the hair follicle. DHT causes the anagen / growth phase of the hair growth cycle to shorten, and thus hairs grow progressively shorter; DHT also leads to miniaturization of the hair follicle itself. Saw Palmetto prevents the formation of DHT and therefore it protects length of the growth phase, the length of the hair, and maintains follicular size;
  • Zinc - Essential in the manufacture of new hair, and has also been found to inhibit the enzyme that leads to the formation of DHT. In addition, zinc enhances immune function;
  • Silica - Research from the former USSR has shown that Silica slows down the rate of hair loss;
  • Capsicum Minimum - Stimulates both the hair follicle, and the circulation to the dermal papilla;
  • Vitamin B6 - This vitamin acts to block the DHT receptor;
  • Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) - This vitamin is known to improve the hair's colour, shine and condition;
  • Echinacea - Boosts the body's immune system, making auto-immune conditions less likely, and reducing inflammation which sometimes goes hand in hand with alopecia;
  • Inositol - Is known to arrest hair loss;
  • Damiana Aphrodisiaca - Can aid in hormone balance, stimulates hair follicles.
  • Vitamin H (biotin) - Is known to prevent baldness.

Irene also contains iron, folic acid, calcium, phosphorous and vitamin E, all essential for a healthy head of hair. Irene also contains all the essential amino acids that the body requires to form new hair that is strong in structure and condition. One essential amino acids found in Royal Jelly, methionine, has been shown to be responsible for building strong sulphur bonds in keratin, the protein that hair is made from.

ICNM's Highly Commended Certificate for Outstanding Contribution to Complementary Medicine - Lynn Booth

The Institute for Complementary and Natural Medicine (ICNM) has given a Highly Commended certificate to Lynne Booth, Founder and Originator of Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) in its Outstanding Contribution to Complementary Medicine category. The Award, sponsored by Balen's Insurance, is now in its second year, and is part of the ICNM's Complementary Medicine Awards.



Booth VRT

Lynne's work, also known as Vertical Reflexology was developed when she was working in a Bristol nursing and residential home in the mid 90s. This method allows the therapy to be briefly carried out on the dorsal (top part) foot/hand rather than traditional reflexology which works on the palm and base of the foot. VRT may be applied as an effective short treatment in its own right and can also be easily integrated into classical reflexology sessions.
The ICNM Complementary Medicine Awards comprise four categories. The winners in these categories are:

 

  • Best Complementary Medicine Student - Kim Holmes;
  • Best Complementary Medicine Practitioner - Lynne O'Sullivan;
  • Outstanding Contribution to Complementary Medicine - Dounne Alexander, Gramma's
  • Highly Commended - Lynne Booth, Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT)
  • Best Complementary Medicine Company - Helen Rollason Cancer Charity

Further Information

Rich Hippie - Organic Perfumes

Rich Hippie

Rich Hippie works with only the best organic farms worldwide to first ensure that our base ingredient - the actual plant or flower - is of the very finest quality. From each crop they select the raw ingredients and then blend them together, continually adjusting the mix until the scent is just right. They add plant-based alcohol and then allow the perfume to rest for many months so it can develop and form its scent - the various plant and flower ingredients all react to each other to form a unique perfume.

The final result is a perfume that is infinitely more beautiful than science could ever create - the finest flowers and plants in the world are being picked and distilled and eventually coming together to create a very special scent. Of course, this all-natural route does have its ups and downs - because each crop we use is dependent on the weather, the quality of the soil and many other variants the raw ingredients our growers can offer us does change year to year.

Rich Hippie also takes their natural perfume-making one step further and guarantees that the entire process is completely organic. This means they can ensure the perfume is as clean as possible and has no residues from conventional farming practices. This organic approach does mean their perfumes are more expensive to produce but Rich Hippie believe you just can't put a price on your health.

Sophrology for Burnout

 

Sophology Academy

Seventeen years ago, Florence Parot, was finishing her degree. She describes herself as a typical overachiever, working all the time, burning the candle at both ends. Driven to succeed and abusing her body, she didn't rest properly and eventually she paid the price. Despite being constantly exhausted and very stressed she pushed and pushed herself. Then at age 23 years old she collapsed with burnout. She was rushed to hospital but they could not diagnose what was wrong with her, she couldn't even stand up, she was like an old lady; it felt like her body and brain stopped functioning. Florence was suffering from burnout, and despite a stay in hospital and numerous trips to her doctor, no one could diagnose what was wrong or find a cure. Rest was not enough, she wasn't depressed and this wasn't a nervous breakdown, she was simply burnt out.

Eventually her family doctor understood that conventional treatment was not working and her symptoms, which included IBS weren't improving. Her GP recommended Sophrology and it changed her life.

Sophrology is a gentle, safe yet highly effective holistic non-invasive technique which combines eastern and western traditions to successfully reduce and bring about healing and well being for a wide range of common stress induced health problems. It is particularly effective for stress management, feeling overwhelmed, prevention of burnout and for overcoming sleep problems and feeling tired all the time. As a therapy it stands at the crossroads between meditation and life coaching, Zen and classical relaxation techniques.

Florence saw a Sophrologist weekly and after a year was fully recovered; none of the symptoms has returned and she has never looked back. Florence completely turned her life around and she has since retrained as a Sophrologist and has opened the UK's first Sophrology Academy.

Further Information
Sophrology workshops The next workshop takes place for three days from April 12th to 14th at the beautiful Witherdeans Hall. Places are limited and the workshop, which includes Sophrology, relaxation, stress management and burn-out prevention techniques, a sleep programme, Life Coaching, nutrition, massages, reflexology and time for yourself in beautiful surroundings.
