Raising your defenses

Raising low defenses with 3 Natural Products

Raising low defenses is a necessity that must be considered when they are compromised or weakened.

Symptoms of low defenses

You can notice various physical, skin and pathological symptoms that our body gives signals of low defenses.

  • A first symptom is frequent infections or that these tend to last longer than usual like a simple flu that takes time to heal.
  • Blood problems such as anemia can occur.
  • Tiredness that can be excessive.
  • Low-grade fever or recurrent fever.
  • Digestive problems such as loss of appetite, stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
  • White or red spots may appear on the skin.

Frequent infections with a low immune system: Pneumonia, meningitis, skin infections, bronchitis.

What are the factors that can lower the defenses? For example, stress, certain pathologies, the excessive use of antibiotics, the cold, the change of season, inadequate nutrition, an inadequate night’s rest, etc. In addition, the immune system deteriorates over the years.

Especially in these situations, the ineffectiveness of the immune system leads to an increased susceptibility to infections. This is why diseases caused by pathological agents such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites are triggered.

Subir las defensas

The best and most effective way to strengthen the immune system is to adopt a healthy lifestyle. In general, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, regular exercise, not smoking, not exceeding alcohol consumption, keeping body weight and blood pressure under control, sleeping at least 7-8 hours a night and scrupulously observing the rules of personal hygiene.

If the healthy lifestyle needs support, it can be helpful to turn to natural products to boost low defenses.

Here we present 3 allies who collaborate in the proper functioning of our defenses.

Raising low defenses with 3 Natural Products

1.Vitamin C

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, belongs to the group of so-called water-soluble vitamins, that is, those that cannot accumulate in the body, but must be taken regularly through food.

What is vitamin C used for?

Vitamin C participates in many metabolic reactions and in the biosynthesis of amino acids, hormones and collagen.

Thanks to its strong antioxidant powers, vitamin C raises the barriers of the immune system and helps the body prevent the risk of tumors, especially in the stomach, by inhibiting the synthesis of carcinogenic substances. In addition, its contribution is essential for the neutralization of free radicals.

2. Cordyceps mushroom

Cordyceps sinensis is the botanical name of a characteristic fungus of traditional Chinese medicine. It has toning properties, useful for increasing body energy, stimulating the immune system and improving physical resistance.

All the properties of Cordyceps mushroom  

Immunomodulatory and antitumor, hypoglycemic, antihypertensive effect,
Promoter of liver, heart and kidney health and function,
Anti-aging, aphrodisiac, cholesterol lowering,
Regulator of the sleep-wake cycle,
Antitussive, expectorant and antiasthmatic.

3. Transfer factors for raising low defenses

Transfer factors are designed to support normal immune function. In fact, they are important immunological agents that activate and modulate the work in all areas of the immune system.
When these come into contact with a germ, they store the characteristics of the latter. It is as if they take “chemical photographs” of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. This information remains ready for specific immunoglobulins (antibodies) to be produced very quickly when any abnormal cell, classified as unknown, appears to attack until destruction.
Transfer factors regulate and activate the innate and acquired immune systems in the most natural way.

How many photoepilation sessions Barcelona

How many hair removal sessions do I need?

  How many hair removal sessions do I need? This is a frequently asked question and we want to help give an answer to those who are considering undergoing this permanent hair removal method.

How photoepilation works

High intensity pulsed light (IPL) is a photoepilation technique that uses radiation of light to weaken the hair and cause it to fall out. The principle on which it is based is that of selective photothermolysis. In practice, the intensified pulsed light, emitted during treatment, affects the hair bulbs, causing the follicle and the blood vessels that feed them to overheat. In this way, the vitality of the cells of the matrix responsible for hair regeneration is compromised. For the process to be selective towards unwanted hair and not affect other tissues, it is necessary to use pulsed light with wavelengths in the range of 590-1200 nanometers. When the melanin contained in the bulbs absorbs radiation, the energy contained in them is transferred to the bulb in the form of heat. This causes high temperatures to be reached, which progressively cause the follicle to degrade (thermolysis). As the treatments are carried out, the hair grows back less quickly (from 4 weeks at the beginning to several months later) and is increasingly fine.

How many hair removal sessions do you need?

The results that can be obtained with pulsed light hair removal depend on a number of factors. For example: age, hormonal structure, skin type and hair characteristics. Therefore, the number of sessions varies according to individual cases and the area to be treated. In the majority of “normotype” subjects (without hypertrichosis), the results can be obtained in 8-10 sessions performed every 3-4 weeks, with an average reduction of 80% of the hair present in the treatment area. After the first few treatments, however, there is a weakening of the hair and an improvement of the tissues, especially in the case of folliculitis and ingrown hairs.

Male hair removal with pulsed light

The duration of the sessions is extremely variable (15-60 minutes) and depends fundamentally on the extension of the treated area and the skill of the operator. The results obtained with pulsed light hair removal are long-lasting, especially if the maintenance sessions are repeated once or twice a year.
cuantas sesiones de fotodepilación

Personalized and professional treatment in our beauty center in Barcelona

Pulsed light hair removal can be performed in our certified beauty center in Barcelona, ​​by highly qualified personnel. It is always advisable to inform the GP, who, knowing the medical history, can rule out the presence of contraindications. The adjustment of the power of the instrument and the frequency of treatment depend on: hair characteristics (color, diameter of the shaft and hair density), phototype, skin lesions and concomitant pathologies or use of photosensitizing drugs.

How many hair removal sessions do I need?

The pulsed light hair removal sessions are developed according to the following phases:

Preliminary phase

The skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove residues of dirt, makeup, perfumes, deodorants or any product that can interact with the laser (and that can be mistaken for melanin). At the end of this operation, the area to be treated is shaved to ensure the success of the session. If the hairs were longer than 2mm, in fact, the power of the light beam would not only act on the bulb, which is the real target, but would spread along the axis, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment.

Epidermal test

The thermal reaction of the skin is evaluated. In this phase the operator adjusts the fluence (energy emitted per square centimeter). After about two minutes, the result is observed and the device settings are adjusted accordingly. This step is done at the beginning of each session, as skin conditions can vary.

Hair removal phase

The esthetician carefully passes the device in the region to be treated. When finished, the skin is cleaned again and a cooling gel is applied, which can relieve redness. Sometimes, before proceeding with hair removal, the operator may apply a topical anesthetic cream to some particularly sensitive areas of the body.
Everything for the summer

All we can do now for the summer

It seems that summer is still a long way off. However, now is when you have to prepare for the date with the beach and the wardrobe test. Therefore, it is time to resort to beauty treatments for the face and body to better face the arrival of summer. Among the most popular treatments is undoubtedly photoepilation, which can now be done on multiple areas of the body, from the face to the legs. There are also anti-cellulite, firming, toning and draining treatments. Even the face, and not only in summer, deserves special attention. For this reason, moisturizing, firming and toning treatments play a fundamental role. Among the most requested are anti-aging treatments, such as Japanese facial massage. In addition, beauty treatments for the summer such as preparing for sun exposure with an exfoliating treatment.

Definitive photoepilation

Photoepilation is still the most effective technique for permanent hair removal. This avoids waxing, razors, and other more painful hair removal methods. Its wavelength only attacks the hair bulb, without damaging any other structure of the skin. By absorbing the light produced by the device, melanin, the pigment responsible for hair color, heats up to more than 60°C and destroys the hair follicle, which will therefore no longer produce hair.

Body treatments

There are many body treatments that can be performed to improve microcirculation, drain, re-oxygenate the tissue and reduce orange peel skin. The anti-cellulite massage and lymphatic drainage generate a feeling of well-being while stimulating the fibroblasts with a firming effect. In this way, it is possible to reduce volumes and reactivate the proper functioning of tissue metabolism. With a gentle lifting effect, the treatment tones and firms the affected areas and leaves the skin smoother and softer.

Facial treatments

To maintain the elasticity of the skin and improve its tone, we recommend facial beauty treatments that slow down the normal dehydration process and allow the water lost in the tissues to be replaced. They are also capable of preventing the formation of wrinkles, improving the tone of the treated areas and slowing down the effects of time.

Anti-aging and toning treatments

The Japanese facial massage is an anti-aging treatment that maintains and stimulates the functionality of the fibroblasts, increasing the concentration of collagen and elastin, for a lifting effect over time.

Treatments for dry skin

Dry skin will need to be rehydrated, not only on the inside, but also on the outside. Therefore, there are specific cosmetics for dry and dehydrated skin, which reproduce the hygroscopic properties (capable of retaining water) of the skin’s natural hydration factor.

Anti-Cellulite and Firming Treatments

Quarantine Wellbeing

Care to restore well-being after quarantine

Aurum Wellbeing would like to give you advice on the care to recover well-being after quarantine. It has been a very difficult few weeks. Almost two months of confinement full of worries in which the nerves have been on the surface and that is something that not only our mind has suffered, but also our body. Our routines have completely changed, in many cases, the diet has also changed and insomnia has made an appearance. To this must be added that our physical activity has been drastically reduced by the mere fact of not being able to leave the house. It has been something detrimental to our well-being.

Fortunately, little by little we are welcoming this “new normality”. In which we must focus on recovering part of that well-being that we had lost. Taking up sports gradually is the best way to achieve it, as long as it is done consciously and setting realistic goals. It is also advisable to be constant in practice and not forget that recovery is as important as activation. Especially now that more injuries can occur.

For this, in order to achieve better stamina and accelerate the recovery period, massages can be a determining key factor.

These massages, in addition to the therapeutic or decontracting ones, can also be an excellent way to take care of our back and give it an extra dose of pampering after so many sedentary days in which surely there have been incorrect postures in chairs or armchairs that have not done more than harm us.

It is clear that physically it has not been easy for many parts of the body, so all help is little.

Regain well-being after quarantine with treatments such as lymphatic drenage.

In this treatment, slow and rhythmic pressures are exerted on the legs to try to end the accumulation of liquids in certain areas, they are also appreciated. At Aurum Wellbeing we are experts in this technique, perfect for eliminating toxins and feeling an immediate sense of lightness. Also the anti celulitis massage, another of our center´s specialties that we recommend in order to reconnect with states of being.

Care for your skin

In addition, now is the ideal time to restore that shine to our skin, drier than usual, with a lack of tone and a lack of vitamin D after so many days constantly exposed to the blue light emitted by electronic devices. The treatment that can best achieve this goal is a good professional facial cleansing like the one we do at Aurum Wellbeing. Because it allows the skin to be completely purified by removing dead cells, blackheads, pimples or other small skin defects that may have appeared in all this time. In addition, to remove dead cells from your body and make it easy for your body to regain color, you can opt for body exfoliation.

Afterwards, it is convenient not to lose the habit of taking care of our skin at home not only with daily hygiene but with the usual morning and night protocol. Better that it adapts to the characteristics of our face, as well as with a deep exfoliation once a week. Finally, we must not forget about sun protection now that walks are once again, part of our life even if they are limited. Because with the first sun exposure the appearance of spots or small pimples can be very common.
