I am concerned when my daughters tell me their girl friends continue to pay for indoor tanning to "look good" for events. Or another quote from my patients sounds something like I use tanning beds to "get a base tan before my cruise.."
Either people still do not understand the risk for skin cancer or they have not heard of the risk concerning tanning beds. Or the worst case scenario the look of "tan skin" is worth the risk?
According to the CDC, using a tanning bed, booth, or sunlamp to get tan is called indoor tanning. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays while indoor tanning can cause skin cancers including melanoma (the deadliest type of skin cancer), basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. UV exposure also can cause cataracts and cancers of the eye (ocular melanoma). UV exposure from the sun and from indoor tanning is classified as a human carcinogen (causes cancer in humans) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (part of the World Health Organization) and by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
There are a few things you can do to repair damaged skin from either the sun or indoor tanning sessions. Using my personally formulated probiotics to heal the gut will produce a better immune system which is how your body is capable of killing cancer cells. Having a healthy gut means you will absorb more micro-nutrients from your diet. The cells in the gut lining PRODUCE the cells of the immune system so it is critical your gut can produce healthy cells in order to have a strong immune system.
Using my sea mineral solutions as a spray on the skin will deliver the exact combination of the healing minerals of the Dead Sea which go directly to the pores of your skin and the micro-nutrients have the ability to heal the cell inflammation. If you have acne, or any other skin disorder use my acne treatment cleanser which is made from pharmaceutical grade elements and minerals to precisely match the composition of the ocean water and The Dead Sea healing waters including the high amount of organic magnesium.

Another product I want to tell you about and personally use (and my kids love) is from the skincare company Osmosis called Liquid Sun Screen or Harmonized Water! You will need my provider CODE to purchase 5662. Osmosis Medical Skincare also offers ONCOLOGY FRIENDLY products. Click Here to visit Osmosis Skincare. CODE 5662
This sunscreen water is great for kids and swimmers who struggle with the sunscreen burning the eyes in water. I look forward to reading some peer reviewed studies using this technology in the future!
To use the liquid sunscreen you basically put 1-2 dropper-fulls under the tongue 20 minutes before sun exposure.
You need to re-take it every 2 hours AND if you are at the beach you need to double your protection. Use the best and least toxic sunscreen you can afford and you also need to cover-up during those critical peak hours around high noon! The rays are so intense!
