Embrace Your Beauty

Don’t you wish it were just that easy? One of the most overlooked aspects of health is sleep. There are times when you can sleep all night, but still wake up tired. Frequently this is because you have been asleep, but you didn’t get any rest. You never achieved the REM phase of sleep. If you don’t get into the REM phase of sleep, your body will not rest and repair itself optimally. Thus, you will awake tired and unrefreshed.

People will try to help their sleep in any manner of ways. Most commonly this is alcohol. While alcohol will help you fall asleep, or pass out, it will not allow you to get into the REM phase of sleep. Thus, you will not be refreshed or rejuvenated when you awaken. Pills like valium, Benadryl, codeine, etc. do the same thing. They also will create a dependency so you will have to use them forever and likely in larger doses as time goes on.

At Genesis, we want to assist you in your wellness journey, and nothing is more important than getting a good night’s rest. If you are struggling to sleep well, then a supplement such as Best Night Sleep may be useful to you. It has all-natural ingredients to assist in getting to sleep as well as promoting the REM phase of sleep. It has the all-natural nutraceuticals, L-theanine and melatonin. These all help you get your best night's rest.

You may also need some other aspects of your health and lifestyle adjusted to get the rest you need, and we can help you there, too. So, if sleep is a problem for you, come in and let us help you get you the rest you deserve!

Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?

As I get myself ready for my mile marker 60th birthday this June, I have been doing some looking back and reflecting on how I have used the past 60 years. Would my younger self approve? For the next 6 months I thought I would share what my younger self might have to say to me in this newsletter. I hope it resonates with you, too.

Dear older me,

You are perfect just the way you are. Sure, set goals and dream big! I am! At the end of the day, remember you like yourself and you are loved no matter what you do this year or what you look like. To the people that really love you, none of that matters.

From your 10-year-old you!

As I tried to put myself into my 10-year-old mind I remember how loved I felt and how I still believed I could do and be anything. The world hadn’t taught me otherwise. As you set your goals for the New Year, remember to be kind to yourself. Enjoy the journey even when you’re not perfect, none of us are. Yes, the services we do can enhance what you already are – so enjoy them – but at the end of the day it is just the icing on a fabulous cake.

Happy New Year!

As we age, we have been conditioned to put up with aches and pains as “part of getting older!” With newer discoveries and treatments, that is not always the case for your legs. Do you wish your legs would feel lighter, more energetic, less sluggish, and even look better? At the Genesis Laser & Vein Center we can help you achieve this.

Vein disease is a progressive disease that starts when you are young. Like a lot of medical conditions, the earlier you begin treatment, the better the results are. A common misconception is that if they don’t hurt, it is okay. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When you have vein disease, the main risk when you are younger is a higher risk of blood clots. If we reduce the amount of blood pooling in your legs, the risk goes down. Plus, your legs will feel lighter and more energetic! Also, as you treat the surface veins, you will be less self-conscious about the looks and hopefully be more active.

As the years go on, you will need ongoing treatment. But if you start earlier, these treatments are less frequent, and the results are better. So, if you want to live your best and healthiest life, come in and let us evaluate you. We can then help your legs stay healthy, which is far better than trying to fix things when they break!

Well, friends. Here we are again. Have you thought about any changes you could be making in 2023? I’m not talking “New Year New You” social media caption-worthy resolutions. I’m talking the how you spend your mornings or who you surround yourself with changes. The small habits that make up your everyday life that we sometimes forget about. If you look at small habits with a different perspective, I really believe you can change your life, one step at a time. Start small. Reward yourself for accomplishing a goal and then aim for another one.

For example, one thing I want to work on is taking my NP thyroid. If you have visited Genesis Wellness Clinic and had HRT you KNOW the struggle. NP is stingier with its absorption, so it must be taken in the morning 30-60 minutes before eating or drinking anything. NP thyroid is naturally derived and can help symptoms from your thyroid not producing enough thyroid hormone. Some of these symptoms include moodiness, forgetfulness, loss of energy and persistent fatigue, joint aches, problems concentrating, and more.

It makes such a huge difference in my daily life. With that being said, I also LOVE coffee and need it to survive. So sometimes it’s very difficult for me to be awake and not head straight for the coffee pot. For my solution I plan on setting an alarm 30 minutes before I must get up. NP on my nightstand and glass of water ready for me to just roll over and take it. That way, when I have to get up, I can take my other supplements, have my coffee, and be ready to take on the day.

I’m excited for 2023. If you want to work on your health this year, come visit us at Genesis Wellness or Laser and Vein. If you have been good about your health and you want to work on your confidence, come and visit us at the Medspa. One thing I love about where I work is that we can help change your life from the inside out AND from the outside in. We get to experience these changes with you and love every minute of it.

Have a blessed 2023, and we look forward to seeing you around the office!

The holidays are upon us and, like it or not, that usually leads to long days and tired nights. At Genesis, we can help you get through the rough patches! We have so many ways to keep your look and energy up so that you can maximally enjoy the season.

Let’s start with your legs. If you have leg symptoms such as swelling, heaviness, restlessness, no energy, or itching to name a few, you likely have vein disease. To get you through the holidays, you should wear thigh high compression hose. This will make your legs feel better and allow you to power through the long days.

Also, if you are traveling over the holidays, your hose are mandatory as this will reduce the chances of you developing a DVT, deep venous thrombosis, or the dangerous type of blood clot. Hose are important when travel is two or more hours in the car or any length of plane flight. No compression hose? Stop by Genesis and we can measure you for a pair. Sigvaris compression hose come in many stylish options perfect for your holiday outfits.

How about your energy? B12 supplementation can boost your mood and energy to get you through the day. We can give you a B12 for that quick fix. What about an IV for immune support or if you overindulged at the office party? Come and see the variety of IV therapies at the Genesis Wellness division. We can recommend the right one for you. Also, higher vitamin D levels have been shown to boost your immune system and make you less prone to being seriously sick from all those pesky viruses that are floating around. We can give you a shot for the quick boost and then start you on a daily Vitamin D supplement that is properly absorbed.

Lastly, let’s not forget your skin. Winter weather can take its toll on facial skin. A Diamond Glow or Hydrafacial are quick and easy treatments to get your skin glowing for those holiday events. And don’t forget Genesis for one-stop gift card shopping for those on your list. They make great stocking stuffers. Treat yourself and treat a friend, too!

So happy holidays and Merry Christmas! We at Genesis wish you a safe and joyous season and will be here to help you through it!

Can you all believe that it is November already? I feel like the months just keep flying by and life is flashing before my eyes. We are getting ready to head into one of my favorite times of the year. I love all that comes with the holiday season, even the busy schedule that has me running like crazy! But the busy to-do list and busy schedule can definitely take its toll on my body. This time of year, it is very important to me that I take care of myself and keep my immune system high. I don’t want anything to get in the way of spending time with the ones I love most!

I am really thankful to be a part of the Genesis team and know all there is to help keep me healthy! So, this month I wanted to share with you what I do to help maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep my immune system healthy.

I start every day with exercise. That is my time of the day to focus on me! I love the endorphin rush that I get from a good workout! I also work out because I love to snack and indulge in a few adult beverages every now and then. Now with that said, I know what I put in my body also fuels my body, so I do try to make good food choices most of the time.

Every three months I see one of the wellness providers for hormone replacement (pellets). This has been life changing for me. I have so much energy, I sleep at night, and have more mental focus. Sleep is so important; if you are not sleeping your body never gets to repair itself!

On a monthly basis I get a B12 injection. This is something new that we have been doing here and has really been an extra boost! The B12 injections will help increase your mood, energy level, brain function, and can help the body repair itself. And then on the daily I take several different nutraceuticals. My daily regimen includes Methyl Factors (all the Bs), Multi-Strain Probiotic (good gut health), DIM (helps with detox and keeping my hormones going down the right pathways), Daily Multi, and ADK10 (Vitamin D helps increase your immune system and bone health). If I start to get really sore from my workouts I take BPC-157 – that one is filled with great peptides to help repair my bod! And the last thing that I do is IV therapy when I feel like I need an extra boost!

So, if you are already thinking about the upcoming holiday season and you want to be on your A-game, we have so many options to help! Don’t let a weak immune system keep you away from your family and friends this holiday season. Put yourself on your to-do list and remember that you are important, too! And remember being healthy now is important, but it is also important for your health in the future! So, with all of that said, I hope that each and every one of you has the best holiday season yet and you get to feel so much love and happiness!
