Holistic & Alternative Health & Wellness Resources and Services in Santa Barbara & Los Angeles

Holistic Health Suggestions

Full body wellness is important to us here at Thermography Centers.
Below is a preventative/proactive list we have compiled of recommendations for maintaining positive health.

Importance of lymph Health and Regular Detoxification Protocols

The lymphatic system is a vital player in the body's ability to prevent and heal disease. Lymphatic function supports everything from your digestion to your immune system. Compromised lymph function can play a big role in pathology developing in the body.

 Here are some suggestions in supporting your lymphatic system:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Make time to sweat! Whether it be with exercise or in a sauna, sweating is important for detoxing toxins from your body. We recommend the Olympic Spa in Los Angeles for their steam room, dry sauna and infrared sauna.
  • Use natural deodorant, we recommend Dr. Mercola at, www.mercola.com or Schmidt's www.schmidtsdeodorant.com
  • Stop wearing underwire bras. We like www.rubyribbon.com shapewear and pansy.co (not .com)
  • Dry brushing- Choose a brush with natural fibers and brush daily or twice daily for up to 20 min. always brushing towards the heart using firm pressure but not scrubbing the skin.
  • Essential oil for breasts and lymph massage Helichrysum, Lemon, Orange, Tangerine, Ledum, Sandalwood, Lavender, Clove, Thyme, Idaho balsam fir, Tsuga, Frankincense, Myrtle, Myrrh.
We recommend https://doterra.com/US/en/ or https://www.rockymountainoils.com and Healthy Girls Breast Oil at, www.aromatherapynaturesway.com 

Lymphatic therapy and/or hot castor oil packs can be helpful for areas of lymph congestion and inflammation. Many clients report reversal of symptoms with lymphatic therapy. It is also highly regarded as a preventive measure as it assists the body in detoxification.

Bring your thermography report and images with you so your therapist can focus in on any areas of concern.

Supplements that we think are foundational. 

Turmeric is a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant; it improves brain function, helps prevent cancer and heart disease and can help treat depression as well as arthritis. We believe that it is one of the most healing medicinal herbs available. The main active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin.

We suggest the Curcumin supplement called CuraMed by Terry Naturally. 

We highly recommend the superfood powder Amazing Grass, Green Superfood
