The Sun and Your Skin: Friends or Enemies?

To put it mildly, it has been a very hot summer in New York City! As I took to the streets and braved the heat, I couldn’t help but notice an array of summertime complexions. Some people tan, some burn and others look like they have not been getting any extra sun at all.

We as a culture are still grappling with our relationship to the sun. Is it giving us cancer or is it a vital source of vitamin D? Will it keep us looking youthful or is it aging us faster? The answer is not absolute; it’s all in the dose.

Many of us continue to slather on gobs of sunscreen on our bodies and on our children’s bodies. But, scientists are now discovering a strong relationship between sunscreen and skin cancer. I encourage you to read a great article that Natural Health Dossier recently published about the dangers of sunscreen:
Sunscreen: Snake Oil of the 21st Century

Manufacturers of sunscreen have given consumers a false sense of security. They have encouraged generations of people to cover themselves in a chemical lotion and lay in direct sunlight for hours at a time. This overexposure to direct sunlight has contributed to the rise of skin cancer and premature aging in our society. The natural response from many people wanting to avoid such ailments has been to stay away from the sun. The sun has become the enemy while sunscreen has become the hero.

The truth is, we need the sun. It is, quite simply, the source of life for everything that lives on our planet. Too much exposure is damaging, but not enough exposure can cause just as many problems. Spending 20 minutes in the sun without sunscreen will allow you to reap the gifts of sunlight without damaging your skin. It will complement and increase the benefits of taking supplements. Each person is different, so if you feel your skin burning, cover yourself up.

Proper nutrition is critical to healthy skin; we need hydration and healthy fat to help control inflammation (sunburn) and maintain our skin’s natural elasticity. If you must be out in the sun uncovered for extended periods of time, make sure to use a natural sunscreen that is chemical free.

When you combine a strong nutrition program with the proper amount of sunlight, you can continue to maximize the benefits of the summer season while minimizing the risk. Each season, SanaVita’s Natural Pharmacy puts together a nutrition package to support and complement the changes and challenges our bodies experience. Our HEALTHY SKIN package, which includes Rehydration, Vitamin E, Cod Liver Oil and Phytorad Antioxidant Spectramin, keeps the skin hydrated, controls inflammation and supports high levels of active vitamin D. Expect to notice a difference in your skin within the first month.

See Ya Seasonal Allergies

As we enter the spring and summer season many people begin to suffer from seasonal allergies. These allergies come from a combination of new environmental pollen in conjunction with the body’s desire to detoxify from the winter. An immune response is triggered from the body that leads to inflammation.

By using homeopathic medicine to desensitize the body from these pollens as well as herbs to boost our immune system, we can greatly reduce allergy symptoms by calming down the body’s inflammatory response.

Pharmacy Director, Gabriel Hoffman has put together a program consisting of homeopathy, nutrition and herbs to help address the most common symptoms of seasonal allergies. To learn more about SanaVita’s cutting-edge approach to combat seasonal allergies, make an appointment with Gabriel today.

New Season, New Products

We have introduced two new nutritional products in the PHARMACY, Sun Warrior Protein’s Warrior Blend, a new raw gluten-free vegan protein and Phyto B Complex from Energetix.

Protein and B vitamins are two of the most important (and lacking) nutrients in the modern diet. We need them to stabilize blood sugar and regulate metabolism. They also balance our mood and energy level.

And remember, absorption is the key to all nutrition. What’s the point of taking a supplement if your body can’t absorb and benefit from it?

For more information about our products, make an appointment with Gabriel Hoffman, the director of SanaVita’s PHARMACY. He can create a personalized program for you combining homeopathic, herbal and nutritional remedies and supplements that address your unique health needs.
