Carefully Research Before Availing a Session of Healing With Reiki

People may think that they either need to be sick or be insane in order to go through a session of Reiki healing, but this is not the case. Reiki is not a medication therapy for any sickness or ailment. It is rather a meditational healing treatment for people who have the burden of excessive stress, tension and anxiety. Healing with Reiki is more for the mentally sick and tormented, not for the physically sick people. Every person in this world has some tension and stress.

Exposure to phthalates may disrupt sleep for premenopausal women

A new American study suggests a link between exposure to phthalates, endocrine disruptors found in certain plastics, and sleep disorders in perimenopausal and premenopausal women.

Many dermatologists are only seeing emergency visits, but our practice and some others are treating skin pigmentation problems via telemedicine. If you cannot get an appointment with a dermatologist for your pigmentation issue, here are some tips.

Wear SPF even when indoors

Blue light from your phone and computer screen have been shown to increase skin pigmentation. For that reason, the most important product to use on your face every morning is SPF. Look for SPF with iron oxides, which are the best blockers for blue light.
