Cetuem Myo-Gel Ice Pack

Cetuem Myo-gel ice pack is ideal for the relief of muscle aches and joint discomfort associated typically with minor backache, tendonitis muscle over-use, strains/stress and sports injuries.

Cetuem Myo-Gel Ice Pack

Cetuem Myo-gel ice pack can also help to relieve pain caused by Arthritis and Neuropathy. Simply apply to the sore spot. After 2-3 applications, maximum benefit will be felt. Cetuem Myo-gel ice pack is the pain reliever that works, which explains why it is used and recommended by professional health practitioners and organisations. Cetuem Myo-gel ice pack was tested in a recent clinical trial at the University of Hertfordshire by Professor Tim Watson and Regd. Osteopath Martin Lester. It was shown to be an effective coupling agent for use with ultrasound, adding to its pain relieving qualities. www.myoproducts.co.uk/testimonials.asp

What makes Cetuem Myo-Gel so unique?

It retains its consistency and does not have to be wiped off following treatment thus enhancing the healing mechanism of the gel. Cetuem Myo-Gel Ice Pack, when dispensed from a tub/tube affords the practitioner the opportunity to create a more thorough experience by massaging the affected area following treatment. This hands-on application also reinforces touch which has been shown to be very important in the healing cycle. Cetuem Myo-Gel Ice Pack contains natural camphor, menthol, spearmint oil, allantoin and pure aloe vera. It has a pleasant spearmint aroma which naturally evaporates cooling tissue that is swollen and inflamed. By this process the pain eases allowing tissues to move more easily.

How Cetuem Myo-Gel works:

With any sprain, strain or bruise there is some bleeding into the underlying tissues. This may cause swelling, pain and delay healing. Cetuem Myo-Gel Ice Pack treatment may be used in both the immediate treatment of soft tissue injuries and in later rehabilitation. The aim is to limit the body’s response to tissue injury. Cetuem Myo-Gel Ice Pack will:

  • Reduce bleeding into tissues.
  • Prevent or reduce swelling.
  • Reduce muscle spasm & pain.
  • Reduces pain by numbing the area.
  • Limits the effects of swelling.
  • These effects all help to prevent the area from becoming stiff by reducing excess tissue fluid that gathers as a result of injury and inflammation.
  • Can be used as a coupling gel with all leading ultra sound machines. Cetuem Myo Massage Oil 150ml bottles

Cetuem Myo-products produces two types of oil.

  1. Cetuem Myo-Massage oil contains a blend of oils including for deep tissue work.
  2. Cetuem Myo-Detox Oil which is also a blend of oils  more suitable for reducing swollen limbs and lymphatic drainage

Healthy Living Space Foundation Courses -  Life education in the build environment

1, 2 and 6 Day Courses: Monday April 16th to Wednesday April 25th 2012

 Lecturer: Wolfgang Sievers -Building Biologist

Health Leads logo

Our modern world and the build environment have presented us with increasing health and ecological hazards. The result is that Western diseases of civilization have multiplied over the past 100 years, ranging from cancers to debilitating sicknesses such as ME, MS, to a multiplicity of gut problems and allergies. Many of these can be traced to the modern build environment, our increasing exposure to electromagnetic radiation and the indiscriminate use of untested advanced technology including many hazardous chemicals.

Our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing depend to a large extent on our ability to bring about fundamental changes to combat these hazards. The aim of this course is to provide the knowledge and tools we need to take steps to ensure our homes and workplaces are safe and conducive to continued good health.

The 1, 2, and 6 day courses will analyze (to a greater or lesser extent) the damaging effects of electro-smog including alternating electric and magnetic fields, pulsed high frequency fields and geopathic stress. They will also address the issue of the build environment in a wider sense examining air quality and humidity along with the presence of moulds and toxins and construction materials.

Venue: Health Leads UK Ltd

Costs:

1 day Course £140.00

2 day Course £280.00

Claudia Louch, CEO  & Practitioner, Phyto Klinikum Ltd

Claudia Louch BSc Hons MCPP MSc MPharm MNutr PGCert MBasl  is a health scientist with a background in Advanced Dermatology Practice, Pharmacology, Allergology, Clinical Nutrition and Medicinal Plant Science.

 

Claudia Louch

Claudia studied Phytomedicine (Botanical Medicine) at one of the leading recognised universities in the country offering this specialisation, where she attained a Bachelor of Science, Honours Degree. An indispensable core to her studies was a rigorous, three-year clinical training program, at the University’s walk-in Polyclinic and the successful achievement in her final viva-exam, chaired by a UK qualified GP, in clinical diagnosis and natural plant treatments. She further developed her scientific studies through the attainment of a Masters from the Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics, Kings College London. As a result she is one of a small group of medical professionals in the country enabled to diagnose, formulate and dispense botanical medicines to qualified patients.

At her clinic, her approach is disciplined and scientific, combining physical examination, investigation of life-style and eating habits, laboratory blood tests and other cutting edge diagnostic tools, all designed to ascertain, to the fullest possible extent, the underlying causes of illness & ailments, whilst following the fundamental principle, of treating the body, as a whole.

This enables Claudia to formulate treatments, both internal and external, to remedy a wide range of conditions, extending from nutritional or hormonal focused ailments, the most common of which is weight loss, to a wide range of skin ailments, such as acne, seborrhoeaic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, scars and age related skin deterioration. Any resulting diets and nutritional support programmes are customized specifically for the patient, as are a range of bespoke treatments in natural dermatology for chronic skin conditions and personalised skin care regimes.

Importantly, her background and understanding of pharmacology enables Claudia to advise patients of potential interactions between plant based and allopathic medicines to the benefit of the individual. She therefore effectively bridges the boundaries of natural and conventional medication.

The results from her clinic provide significant evidence as to the efficacy of her approach, standing as a health scientist and success as a contemporary practitioner in natural, plant based treatments; all of which are being increasingly sought by an ever increasing, and more knowledgeable population, desiring greater control of their health quality and improvement in wider life prospects.

The Really Healthy Company

The Really Healthy Company is a London-based health company that specializes in introducing leading-edge and research-based natural nutritional supplements into the UK and Europe.

Really Healthy Company

The Company started organically in 1995 - more from the directors' personal obsessions with natural health than as a business enterprise - introducing algae and other green foods into the UK retail markets. Since that time they have slowly and consciously built up their product line, choosing only products that they believe can make a real difference to customers' lives, and products manufactured to the highest standards and which contain specialist natural and nutritional ingredients. (Selling products just for the sake of profit has never been their goal, and this business was not incubated from a dry business plan, but rather from the burning desire to promote natural health and nutritional solutions, and from the help and encouragement of kind people along the way.)

Today, their product range is still relatively small, and they now have a large and loyal customer base, which includes many high-profile practitioners (including medical doctors), clinics and shops; their speciality products are available in some of the leading trade catalogues.

The cornerstone of The Really Healthy Company's growth over the years has been their personal and professional service, and their commitment to natural health education - helping to sponsor speakers and conferences. If they do not have the information or product that you are looking for, they are happy to direct you to where you might find it.

    The article naming Claudia Louch states that she is among a small group of medical professionals in the country enabled to diagnose, formulate and dispense botanical medicines to qualified patients.
    It may be worthy of note that ALL fully trained and qualified Registered Medical Herbalists are also among this group of medical professionals!
    I would advise those people interested in talking to one of our member practitioners to contact the International Register of Consultant Herbalists and Homeopaths (IRCH). We specialise in the training of traditional herbalists who are particularly qualified in both botanical science and pharmacology.

    Plant Flavonoid Luteolin Blocks Cell Signalling Pathways in Colon Cancer Cells

    Luteolin is a flavonoid commonly found in fruit and vegetables. This compound has been shown in laboratory conditions to have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-cancer properties, but results from epidemiological studies have been less certain. New research published in BioMed Central’s open access journal BMC Gastroenterology shows that luteolin is able to inhibit the activity of cell signalling pathways (IGF and PI3K), important for the growth of cancer in colon cancer cells. Colon cancer is the second most frequent cause of cancer-related death in the Western World.

    Prescription Medication may be Underlying Hypertension Cause

    Stress, kidney failure and endocrine tumours are the usual suspects for high blood pressure, but could the common pain killers in your medicine cabinet be to blame? Many common over-the-counter and prescription medications can be the underlying cause of hypertension says Prof Ehud Grossman of Tel Aviv University’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine. In his recent research published in the American Journal of Medicine, he warns that while many of the chemicals in these drugs can raise blood pressure, both patients and Doctors remain dangerously uninformed.

    The Rise of Food Intolerance

    The BBC has reported that the number of people who believe they have food allergy or intolerance has risen dramatically over the last few years. Experts have noted that there is a trend towards self-diagnosis as well as great confusion on the difference between allergy and intolerance, resulting in people following unnecessarily restricted diets. Commenting on the article, Dr Gill Hart, Scientific Director at YorkTest Laboratories said that Allergy UK estimates that 45% of the population suffer from food intolerance. Food intolerances are different from allergies; reactions are much more delayed and in some cases take up three days to manifest themselves. The symptoms of food intolerance are also bewilderingly varied and can include stomach problems, migraines, eczema, fatigue and joint pain.

    The Greener Way To Relax

    A new study has shown that a natural chemical found in green tea could be the secret to staying calm this spring.
